We hope adopting will weave our lives together in a beautiful way.
Thank you for being interested in learning a bit more about our lives and loves. We’re Shay and Eva, and our life is centered around our family, friends, work, and our doggie, Max! This process has blessed us with many opportunities to reflect on our values and the needs of a child. We want to empower a child with knowing their adoption story and their full family history so that they can feel secure in themselves. We want to hear how you imagine your role in pursuing that goal will be.
Ultimately, we want a child to know that there are many adults in their lives who love them and want the best for them and that we feel like everything happens for a reason.
With that in mind, take a look around and please don't hesitate to reach out!
Every day we are learning from one another, appreciating the other’s unique perspective on the world, and making each other laugh!
We met during medical school and quickly became friends. Our first day together was an early morning hike and soon afterwards we were inseparable. We've settled in Portland with our beautiful home, medical practice, and our dog, Max.
After over a decade of friendship and marriage, learning we couldn’t have a child together was still a challenge. Thankfully, our years of mutual support and shared vision lead us to adoption. We both grew up in big, extended families so we’re committed to creating a home based on spending time together and celebrating each other. We’re looking forward to sharing our hobbies, nurturing a child’s interests, and creating memories together and with our extended families.
We’ve already had quite a journey together and we’re excited for whatever the future holds for all of us!
