A Letter from Jeff & Erin
Thank you so much for your time to get to know us. We’re so excited to build our family through adoption and would love to adopt a boy or girl of any racial background. We have a fun, joyful, and loving home and look forward to welcoming a tiny bundle of love into our lives. Your child would have a lifetime of affection, adventure, and days full of laughter. We’ve got so much love to give and would cherish the opportunity to have an open adoption with you to the level of your comfort, including visits!
We met 14 years ago through our roommates and have been inseparable ever since! Our relationship is strongly founded on our friendship, and we’ve been married for almost 10 years. We love being together, supporting each other, and laughing together.
We enjoy going to new restaurants, having friends and family over for meals, taking our puppy on walks, sitting on the couch together reading good books, and rooting for our favorite football teams.
As parents, we are excited to pass along our love for reading, the outdoors, and getting friends and family together.
Jeff has the best heart and is filled with joy. He’s honest, caring, and supportive of everyone around him. His love for others is infectious and people who meet him like him instantly. He’s such a strong and committed leader of our family and continues to push us to be our best.
Jeff is a talented musician and can’t wait to share his love of music with our future child. He’s even been learning kids’ songs on his guitar so he’ll be ready to sing to our baby! He loves to hike, read, and tinker with his tools in the garage. He runs his own upholstery shop from our home which will allow him to be flexible. Jeff was born to be a dad, and he’s got quite a few dad jokes ready!
Erin has a sweet and caring heart for others. She always has words of encouragement and feels her best when she’s building up others. Her sense of humor keeps everyone laughing. These qualities perfectly complement her work as a special education teacher, and she’s completely invested in her students and helping them grow.
Erin loves to read, cook, and bake delicious sweets and treats. She has a vegetable garden and we love eating fresh food from the backyard. Erin is very active and loves running, taking spin and yoga classes, and hiking with her camera. She’s eager to share her heart of service, love of the outdoors, good food and books with our future child. She’ll be a loving and devoted mother!
We both have big, loving families who are thrilled about our plans to adopt! Between us, we have seven siblings and six nieces and nephews.
Our whole family embraces each other unconditionally. Jeff even has cousins who were adopted, so our family is passionate about adoption.
Our favorite traditions are making homemade ice cream on the fourth of July, family gatherings at Thanksgiving, and wrapping gifts on Christmas Eve while singing along to Christmas carols. We make sure to take a yearly trip to the mountains in the fall to witness the leaves changing color, and meet Jeff’s family every summer at the family beach house. We can’t wait for our child to participate in these traditions with us, and help us make new traditions!
Our child will be with family, most of the time. After Erin has 4 months of maternity leave, Jeff’s job will allow him to care for the baby at home. Erin’s mom and step-mom, and a local nanny will help with in-home care on days we need extra help.
We’ve created our home to feel cozy and welcoming. We have started setting up the baby’s nursery, and we have a big back yard, with a vegetable garden and lots of room to play. We live across the street from an elementary school, and close to walking trails and parks. Our dog loves people and is great with kids! We look forward to family walks around our friendly neighborhood.
Our hearts are full of love, which we’re ready to share with a child! We promise to provide your child with a stable, fun and loving home, filled with laughter and joy. We will raise your child to know that he or she is loved by you, by us, and by God. We want to teach your child to be loving to others, to find joy and adventure in life’s little details, and to be proud of his or her story.
We look forward to hearing from you and sharing letters, pictures, videos, and visits! You will always be a treasured and honored member of our family and our child will grow up knowing how much you love him or her.

|Our Special Interests|
We love food! Whether it’s going out to new restaurants to try new foods, or grilling, cooking, and baking at home, we love to eat and to share food with our friends and families.
We also like to adventure and you can often find us in the car, singing along to music and finding new places to explore. We are an active pair who likes to work in the yard, take our cute puppy on walks and hike in the beautiful mountains of Colorado.
We are sports lovers and enjoy rooting for our teams. Football season is our favorite and we love how sports brings people together and gives us the opportunity to catch a game with our loved ones.
We are both avid readers and some of our favorite days are the ones that start on the couch together with hot cups of coffee and good books.
We are a Christian couple who love God and want to teach our children about His goodness and love. We will teach our children how to pray and to have confidence in God in all things.
