Diverse couple hoping to add to our lovely family

We are Lance and Fernanda and we are so happy to connect with you and get to know more about you and your path to adoption.

We have been married for 12 years but have been together for 18 years, and we have a lovely home in Seattle, WA. We share our home with our two dogs, Lola and Loki, who bring so much joy to our lives.

We are looking forward to being parents, and after many difficult years with infertility issues, we are grateful for the opportunity to adopt!

Adoption is close to our hearts since Lance was adopted at birth, and that is a subject we have always talked about. We know having gone through this journey himself will be very helpful for our child.

We are not perfect, but we are committed to navigating parenthood together as a couple and with the support of our family and friends. We value diversity, inclusion and kindness.

Our home is filled with love, laughter and gratitude and we have a great support system with friends and family.

We cannot wait to be called mom and dad. Thank you for considering us!

Who We Are

We are a mixed-race couple; Lance is originally from Iowa and Fernanda is from Brazil. We have been married for 12 years and together for 18 years.

We met online as we both had just recently moved to Seattle and didn't know many people. We went to Fremont Solstice Fair for our first date and have not been apart since.

We are a loving couple best friends and really enjoy spending time together. Our favorite thing to do is to travel- we love to research places and different cultures. We have visited over 30 countries so far.

Family is extremely important to us, especially since Lance was adopted at birth. We make an effort to see my family in Brazil at least once a year, but in the meantime, we are surrounded by friends who are like family to us.

This journey to parenthood has provided so many learning opportunities, and we are humbled by the chance to adopt and become parents.

Adoption Diary

Rest and relaxation

We just got back home from a very relaxing weekend in Hood River,OR. We were able to be outside in nature and the weather was beautiful. We also drove around something called “fruit loop”. It is a 20 miles loop around the highway where you can stop at local fruit stands and purchase fruit in season. We actually got to pick our own peaches and they are amazing!
This photo is from one of our stops where you can see a vineyard and Mt. Hood.

Road trip!!!

This weekend we needed a get away. After being at home for 4 months due to the pandemic we rented a hotel room and left for Hood River, Oregon. This town is beautiful located on the Columbia River. We are excited to explore, swim and hike this weekend. The photo is the view from our hotel room.
