Hello! We are Boyd and Lisa from Seattle, Washington. We dream of becoming parents someday & our hope is to start a family through open adoption. We thank you for taking the time to learn about us and for your strength, courage and thoughtfulness, on this journey. As you read our story, please know that we would be honored to hear your story.
We promise to do our best to raise a happy and healthy child, who’s individuality will be celebrated. We have a loving marriage, and will offer a beautiful, safe and nurturing life for your child. We hope to raise someone who is kind, independent and has compassion for others. Someone who will have choices in life and who will feel confident going after their dreams.
With the utmost respect and admiration,
Boyd & Lisa

Who We Are
We met as graduate students at Rhode Island School of Design. While in art school we quickly discovered how much we had in common and began dating and working together. We have been both a couple and business partners ever since!
We have been professional artists working in glass for 20 years and have been actively teaching workshops for the past 15 years. We design and make hand blown glass tabletop items such as vases, bowls and drink ware. Our studio is on our property where we live and we spend our time blowing glass, filling wholesale orders for shops and galleries around the country. As a result, we have flexible schedules that will allow us to spend a lot of time with your child.
A wonderful byproduct of our careers has been the opportunity to travel. As a result we have been able to visit 47 of the 50 states, as well as Australia, New Zealand, Europe and Asia. We love visiting cities, but even more, the countryside and areas that offer great hiking opportunities! We really enjoy traveling and look forward to offering our child an unparalleled education through the magic of exploration!
Since we work so closely together, we have an enormous amount of trust and respect for one another. We look forward to sharing our lives with your child and being a family.
