Thank you for considering adoption. We are committed to open adoption, because we think children should know where they came from and that their adoption was an expression of love. In these paragraphs, we hope to give you a sense of who we are and what it would be like for you to be part of our lives. We see your choice as courageous and we wish you lots of love.

Who We Are
We are Rebecca and Alan. We met in Vermont while on an artist’s residency. We became friends quickly, kept in touch after the residency ended, and started talking long distance. We began dating soon after Rebecca moved to Los Angeles for her graduate program. Alan was already there for his graduate school. We both studied fine art and following graduation, we got married and moved to Eagle Rock, a suburb of Los Angeles.
Today, we spend time volunteering with a nonprofit that pulls cats and kittens from LA shelters. We foster up to 4 kittens at a time in our home (along with caring for our 3 residents cats). We have been doing this work for almost 5 years, so far helping to save and find homes for over 50 kitties.
We travel a few times a year and make a point of seeing our young nephews in Vermont and Colorado every year. We also like to visit extended family in Rhode Island, New York, internationally, or meet family elsewhere if they are traveling. This past year everyone met in Hawai'i to go camping. Our nephews are awesome kids and we are eager for our children to play with them.
