Loving couple searching for our future

We are excited to start raising a child together. We can't wait to take our child for hikes in state parks, have picnics, catch lightning bugs, and go to museums together. We are excited to read stories at bedtime, make up stories on long car rides, throw big birthday parties, watch Pixar movies, and clean up finger paints. We are excited for the good things, but we are ready for the tough things too. Ready to kiss boo-boos, ready to wipe away tears, ready to be firm when necessary. Good or bad, we are ready to take it on.

We believe that the family is the foundation of good values. We each grew up in families that focused on values by living them. Eating dinner together and spending time together was how we learned about the importance of family. Reading and getting our homework done was how we learned about the importance of education. We have learned from our families and from our own experiences the importance of inclusion and helping others who have less than ourselves. We are committed to teaching our child that they are loved, no matter what, and that other people are equally deserving of love, no matter who they are. We will also strive to help our child to develop a positive idea about their own adoption story, a part of their life that makes them special.

Who We Are

Like many people these days, we met through the internet. On our first date, we knew it was a good match because we spent six hours together at the coffee shop! Thom even let Rachel teach him how to make a paper crane. We went out to dinner, went to the art museum, and started to meet each other's friends and family. When Rachel was planning to move about a year after we met, we decided that Thom would come too! We soon got engaged, and a year after that we got married. We have been hoping to complete our family with children for a long time now. In the meantime, we work hard and have a lot of fun. On weekends during the warmer months, we like to go for long hikes followed by ice cream from a local creamery. We like spending time with friends and really enjoy having a bunch of people over to eat a big meal together. We approach the world as a team, whether it's taking care of the house, figuring out how to work through the adoption process, or deciding what to watch on television tonight.

Adoption Diary

Joining Adoptimist

Now that it has been more than a year since we started waiting to adopt, we’ve decided to take a broader approach to letting people know about us.  We’ve worked to put together a profile that really brings out our characters. It’s been fun going through our pictures - there will be a lot more up soon!

We want to thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child.
