Michael was the co-founder of a tech startup and Ronie was a professional cyclist when we met rock climbing in Colorado in 2010. We fell in love and two years later Michael surprised Ronie with a trip to New York City and proposed during their favorite song at a concert!
We have been happily married ever since and are excited to embark on our journey of starting a family through adoption. We love to spend time together outdoors and at home reading and making food.
We wanted to move to the city and start our adventure and start our family so Michael got a new job in New York and we have been the happiest we've ever been living in a place that has so much opportunity.
We knew that we wanted to start a family through adoption before we even got married. Ronie's grandmother is adopted, too, and we have always wanted to have a family this way.
We love to travel and are excited for child to have the opportunity to see the world!
We are very close to our family and friends who we visit regularly in Chicago, California, Boston, and Colorado. We also would like to travel to other countries, and Australia is at the top of our list to visit one day.
Our days are perfect to raise a baby as they grow into a child. Ronie works from home and will be transitioning into full time motherhood once we are blessed with a child. :)
We have a bright, peaceful and loving home. We love the sunlight during the daytime and can hear the birds chirping right outside.
We enjoy cooking healthy foods, watching sports, listening to music and dancing. We imagine spending the days with our child reading and playing and are looking forward to fun filled weekends at home and out in the many great gardens and parks, beautiful beaches, and everything that life has to offer.
We are in a neighborhood of families near a beautiful area of parks. There are playgrounds full of children for our little one to play with and have a wonderful connection with nature.
We want to raise our child in a place full of opportunities for great education and a life full of experiences, learning and fun.
We love living where there is so much to offer our child. We hope our child knows that they will have a life filled with possibilities.

Ronie went to nutrition school so she loves to make healthy food. Her specialty is all different types of pizza (and kale)! She is very active, loves to run, bike and dance and has the kindest loving heart. She loves to have fun and takes the best care of me, and always puts the needs of our family first. Ronie is very engaged in our community spends time each week volunteering. Her goal is to make it a better and healthier place for everyone who lives and spends time here. Ronie teaches nutrition, fitness, and mindfulness meditation.
She is so excited to spend time bonding and taking care of the baby, providing wonderful healthy foods and staying home to raise our child.

Michael is gentle and loving. He really loves life and I am so excited to see him become a dad, he is so patient and amazing!
He has a deep curiosity of how to make the world a better place. He has a great job as a website and app designer and by doing his best work is able to help others build and create their dreams.
He is also smart and fun to be around. He likes history, world events, technology and sports. He especially loves baseball and is excited to teach our child about the world.
He is looking forward to fatherhood and will be able to spend time at home when the baby arrives and has the opportunity to work from home as our child grows.
