Cara + Christian

We are an adventurous, nature loving family with a heart for good food, the outdoors, and lots of time with family.

We’re excited to get to know you and for you to meet us. It’s hard for us to portray ourselves through this simple letter--we get that. We'll do our best to give you a real picture of our family. We are an outdoors loving, good food craving, Netflix watching couple who absolutely adores our little boy.

After being married for a few years, and hoping for children from the very beginning, we decided to begin our adoption journey. We want you to know that adoption was the path we WANTED to go down. It has always been part of our plan. And now, we cannot imagine our family without it.

We hope to have an open adoption because we believe in the importance of allowing children to know where they came from and the beautiful (although difficult) journey that led us together. We want to develop a relationship with you, while allowing you to set the pace and decide what you are comfortable with. And know that our relationship can change and grow over time. We have an open adoption with our son, Jonas, and feel so grateful to have his mama in our lives.

We will work to have a family that embraces and loves everyone around them; our little band will be diverse in origin, but united in destination. We hope to raise children who are kind, confident, outdoor lovers, and believers in Christ.

We admire your courage and willingness to pursue what you believe is best for your baby. We hope to be an answer to each other’s prayers. We promise to love, teach, and encourage your child through their whole life. To give them a safe space to learn and grow and become all they can be.

With love and appreciation,
Cara, Christian, + Jonas

Who We Are

We met at a backyard party, dancing away to 70’s music. Christian had recently returned from working on the east coast and Cara had just come from a study abroad in Jerusalem. After talking briefly that night, Christian found Cara on Facebook. We went on a date later that week. The rest is history! We were married less than a year later. Since then, we have lived around the country as Christian continued management in sales between school years. We took the last year away from school as Christian completed a year in Tesla’s engineering department in the Bay Area and Cara worked as a wedding florist. We loved our adventures in California, but returned to live near family in Utah and finish Christian’s degree. After another year in Utah, we packed our bags once again and moved to Denver for Christian’s job! We have loved the easy access to the outdoors here {we mountain bike, camp, and hike often} and enjoy trying new places to eat in the city. After more than a year here, Denver is definitely starting to feel like home!
