|More About Our Family
|What Adoption Means to Us|
After having our son we experienced secondary infertility. Although this was unexpected, adoption had always been on our hearts. Growing our family through adoption has been an amazing blessing for our family! We met our daughter and her beautiful mother the day she was born and our lives have never been the same. It's an honor to raise her and support her as she grows up and we love being able to share an open adoption with her birth mother. We exchange letters and pictures with Georgia's birth mother, and we even send some of her artwork by mail. That's how she wants to keep in touch with us and we will respect your wishes about how an ongoing connection with us could look like through your child's adoption.
|A Day in the Life...|
Mason has the flexibility to work from home or from his office at the church he pastors. He takes Mondays off and is home everyday for lunch. His week never looks the same but it's always filled with people and work projects. Sometimes he comes home with freshly baked cookies, books for the kids, or a tomato plant for the garden - all from his many interactions with friends from the church and community.
Regina has loved the freedom to stay home with the kids! When they are in school, she uses her time to support the women's and children's ministries at our church. She also likes to pop in on her mom for breakfast or plan a time for them to sew together. She gives the kids all of her attention when they get home from school. Mason can't wait to show off his newest Pokemon trade and all Georgia can think about is her snack!
|More of our Interests|
Mason loves all things nature. He's always up for a trip to the mountains and has made many backpacking trips into the wilderness areas of New Mexico; his fly rod is never left behind. He's captivated by farming techniques both old and new and is fascinated by the miracle of a sprouting seed. He's knowledgeable with engines and automotive repair, construction, and carpentry. Occasionally he'll draw the most amazing, and detailed pencil drawings - he has PERFECT hand writing!
Regina is a mathematician at heart. Her dream job would have been to be a calculator for NASA! She's worked as an engineer in the past on submarines, planes, and helicopters. Now, she loves the availability staying at home gives her to serve our family. She especially loves sending cards at Christmas.

Thanks for spending some time with us here! It gives us much joy to write this letter to you. Adoption has forever changed us; it gave us our spunky, gorgeous daughter, and Regina’s oldest brother was adopted at birth many years ago. We’re humbled you would take the time to consider us. We love being parents, and it would be an honor to raise your child in our healthy, safe, and stable family. We’re ready to embrace an open adoption and look forward to learning more about you!
