Who We Are

Our story begins around thirteen years ago, in Austin TX, when we met through a close friend. We were fast and easy friends, and built a strong friendship over the next year. Before long, our feelings deepened and our relationship shifted. We wanted to spend a lot of our time together and we fell in love. Given that we both have strong family ties, we became very bonded and dedicated to the growth and development of our relationship. We got engaged in Estes Park, CO, while traveling with Tifphanie’s parents in 2014. We married in April of 2015 in beautiful Westlake Hills, TX, surrounded by family and close friends.

Both of us had always pictured ourselves with children and we hoped to start our family right away following our wedding. When we were unable to do so, we started to discuss the possibility of adoption as a way to expand our family. We both have cousins who were adopted as babies, and who were a very integrated part of our respective families. We also have friends who have adopted and one of Tifphanie’s friends is a birth mother who placed her baby for adoption over 20 years ago. To us, the possibility of adoption is a profound privilege. The opportunity to parent a child and grow our family is a sacred one.

As a couple, we are balanced, complementary, and make a good team. We both have active minds and love to learn, play, work hard, exercise, and relax. We prioritize a balanced/healthy lifestyle and like to cook and create wonderful meals together, using veggies from local farms. We practice yoga and like to get out with our dogs on long walks in our neighborhood. We hike the beautiful mountain trails near where we live, and we take drives to collect mountain spring water in big blue jugs to drink at home. We love music and spend time both listening and playing. We are both singers and musicians, artists at heart.

We have put a lot of time and energy into our relationship. We are dedicated, thoughtful, and loyal, and communicate well. We are playful and prioritize having fun. We are also sensitive and serious at times, knowing how to be present and feel our feelings. We laugh a lot and have great conversations. Our relationship is built on love, trust, and mutual admiration. We value spirituality, honesty, and integrity. We value care for others and for the natural world and it’s creatures. Our great hope is to love well and serve humanity as we are able. To do our best. To be our best selves and to also let ourselves be human. Our hearts jump at the idea of having a child to share ourselves with. Our cup is full and we have so much we are ready to give to a little human.
