Hello! We are Rob and Stacy from San Francisco. We hope our profile gives you an honest picture of who we are and a sense of how much a child will be loved and cared for by us. We want to acknowledge how momentous and difficult this decision must be for you, and how much we admire you for making it. We would be honored if you would consider us as a loving family for your child.
We were introduced by a mutual friend in 2008. Soon after, Rob found himself desperately trying to keep up with Stacy on the ski slopes of Lake Tahoe. We first realized we shared a love of the outdoors and then that we shared a love for each other! We were married in 2010 in Lake Placid, NY, surrounded by our friends and family and the Adirondack mountains that we had both enjoyed visiting as kids.
We have been together for nearly ten years and do almost everything together. We laugh together, support each other, and have very similar values. It is important to us to have a balance between work and life. We spend as much free time as we can outside. From hiking, camping or sailing in the summer to skiing in the winter, our happy place is the great outdoors. We feel incredibly lucky to live in California, and try to take advantage of its natural beauty whenever we can. We have also gone on some wonderful adventures together, occasionally in far-off countries that we dreamed of as kids. Most recently we enjoyed a spectacular 5-day backpack through the mountains in Italy.
Overall, we just love our life together, whether we are outside, spending time with our friends, watching a bad sci-fi movie at home (one of Rob’s favorite pastimes), cooking dinner or simply sitting in front of the fire together. We can’t wait to share these wonderful experiences with our child.
