We want to welcome you to our family!

Hi there and welcome! We are happy that you are looking at our profile. If you are here, then we imagine you are considering placing your baby with a family. While we cannot say we know how hard it is, we are glad that you are here. The two of us, plus our wonderful kitties, are hoping to adopt so we can share our love with a little one. We are a fortunate couple to have successful careers and traveling spirits, seeing all parts of the world. With your help, we can share our partnership, cozy home, and love for the world with a baby.

Who We Are

We met in 2015, right after the New Year's in the Washington, DC area - Scott was in DC and Jenny was in Alexandria, Virginia. As the metro area is pretty small, the distance was significant (3 miles actually), but it was well worth it. We hit it off from that first evening by sharing stories of our love for all things travel. A few short months later and we were traveling the world together - going to Iceland, Dubai, Liechtenstein, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Egypt. Travel is important to us, not only as an experience of adventure, but as a way for us to connect with the world and other cultures.

In summer 2016, we got engaged and moved in together into a downtown DC apartment that August. The next few wonderful months had even more international adventures and by Christmas, we had brought a furry friend into our home. Felix Pickles is a black exotic shorthair cat, who is a lovable weirdo. He is cuddly, friendly, and strange, and we love him even more so because of this.

The following two years were filled with travel, marriage, and other adventures. Together, we traveled to some exciting places, including Israel, Jordan, Ireland, France, Cuba, and Portugal. Both of us finished our Master's degrees and Jenny started flying helicopters again, picking it up as a hobby after her career in the Army as a pilot. We also got Felix a sister - a black and white exotic shorthair named Freyja, who is also a weirdo. We love them both so much and they occupy a lot of our pictures.

2019 was a year of big changes for us. In addition to the multiple trips taken, we made the big move down to Atlanta in the summer for Scott's new job. Together, we purchased our first house for our little family and over the last year have truly transformed it into a home. This leads us to 2020 where we are currently in our Atlanta home, fortunately both working remotely. While this year has been rough for many, we have been blessed to be healthy and are using the time to focus on the things that matter to us. We are excited to grow our family and the beginnings of our adoption journey!

Our approach to parenting starts from how Jenny and I have built our relationship. Together, we believe that compromise and understanding are the keys to a relationship. And these influence how we see parenting and raise a child.

We also have a true partnership in every sense of the word. We share everything and are equal partners, which is something very important to us. All responsibilities, from financial to household chores, are handled equally. We both believe we will be a solid influence and provide a stable and happy home to a child for them to thrive and become the best version of themselves.

Adoption Diary

Holidays

Hi there! As with most people, the holidays were a bit different this year than most. Some family wasn’t able to come out due to COVID concerns. The ones who could visit got tested and quarantined to avoid any potential spread and even then a potential exposure almost cancelled the entire thing! In the end though, we were so fortunate for Jenny’s parents to drive down from Michigan; her brother, sister-in-law, and nephew drove down from Virginia; and Scott’s parents and older brother came over from nearby to spend Christmas together. 

The morning started with Jenny’s family gathered around the Christmas tree while her 2-year-old nephew experienced the joy of Santa and opening presents together as a family.  Jenny’s dad then cooked the family our traditional biscuit-and-gravy breakfast so everyone could be stuffed to the brim to start the day.  And then in the afternoon, Scott’s family came over and spent the day with everyone. We chatted and ate a delicious spread of food that Jenny worked hard on (and always makes way too much!).

Overall, the day was perfect - we spent it with family and we’re so thankful for the chance to come together.

Visiting family in the time of COVID

Scott hasn’t seen his abuelo for over a year, so he decided to drive down to Miami for the weekend to visit. Because he’s 94 years old, he had to take a lot of precautions. Aside from a scratch on his forehead, he doesn’t look bad for his age! We really hope that our child will be able to meet him and learn more about Scott’s Cuban heritage.

Thank You for Visiting Our Adoption Profile

We want to thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child.
