Mixed Race couple hoping to adopt! Call or email anytime!!

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

Calm before the storm

As we get ready to move to our new home everything seems so stressful. This is a good reason, moving to a new home, more space more room for a baby, but still super stressful.
So my stress response is to cook/bake :)
This weekend I made merengues! They were perfect and even Loki wanted one.
Here is to hoping some sugar and baking will help with the stress ahead of us!


I love fall season (not as much as summer), but it is so beautiful in the Pacific Northwest when all the leaves start changing, and our wardrobe mostly boots and scarves. The on thin we are looking forward when we are parents is to go to the hayrides, pumpkin patches, etc. We cannot wait to share all these family outings with our child!
