Happy couple looking for littles to love!

Hello! We are Rick and Tamara - a loving, down-to-earth couple looking to grow our family though adoption. We're into travel, music, festivals of all kinds, animals, gardening, fringe sports, a full house, and a good debate.

Considering an adoption plan is incredibly selfless, and we are grateful you're here to learn more about us.

Life is precious and short, and we try to enjoy every moment. Kindness, education, and compassion are our guiding principles. We offer a safe and happy home, more dad jokes than anyone should endure, and will surround your child with support, encouragement, and unconditional love.

Our family and friends are here for us, and are as excited as we are to welcome children into our lives!

We are home study approved and certified to adopt a single child, twins or siblings. We're open to building a relationship with the family that would entrust us with their child, but we respect whatever level of openness or privacy you may want.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us, and please reach out! We're happy to talk.

Who We Are

We met on Craigslist. 

That's where Tamara found a room to rent when she moved to town to start a new job. It was in a big house with five roommates all working on PhDs; one of them was Rick.

With a shared sense of humor and appreciation for a good craft beer, we were instant friends. It was soon obvious we had found our perfect match.  

Twelve years later, our relationship is built on respect, honesty, love and fun. (And of course, being good roommates to each other.) 

We plan to bring up children with the same values; cultivating a love of life, helping them find their passions and building the confidence and skills to follow them. It's an honor to shepherd a new soul through life, and we're ready to grow the love we already share so deeply in our little family.

Adoption Diary

Idle hands, blah blah blah…

Even though it’s usually too hot and there are too many fun things to do in the summer to spend time knitting, I made an exception for this little guy. A tiny octopus for a brand new baby who’s Daddy is really into cephalopods.

So if “makes small sea creatures” is on your bucket list, here you go!

Thank You for Visiting Our Adoption Profile

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

We truly appreciate your kindness and strength and look forward to hearing from you.
