|More About My Family
|Our Special Interests|
What we love more than anything is spending time together as a family! We call every Saturday our "Family Adventure Day" where we get out and do things as a family, enjoying a variety of activities. Sometimes that means an all-day excursion to the beach, other times its a picnic lunch in the park. As long as we're doing something together we are all happy. Nik and Desi's favorite activity is going to the local wild animal park, while Sarah loves driving up the mountain to go apple picking. We are thrilled to include your little one in these activities and learn what his or her favorite adventure maybe!
We are active in our local Catholic Church, which has many ministries for families and children. In the future, Nik plans on leading a men's Bible Study while Sarah hopes to get involved in the youth ministry. We will raise your little one with weekly attendance at Sunday School, regular prayers, and open discussion of God's love for all people. As your child grows, we look forward to teaching him or her more about how to live out faith as an adult.
|More About Our Son|
Our son, Desmond (Desi for short), joined our family in 2019 through the gift of adoption. Holding him for the first time was magical. We have a wonderful open relationship with his birth mother where we share pictures and videos, send gifts, and video chat. We look forward to future visits with her. We love our son and are incredibly grateful to his birth mother for choosing us to be his parents.
We have two miniature schnauzers named Belle and Sebastian. They are wonderful with children; they often play with Desi outside, lay outside Desi's door while he's napping, and absolutely love it when Desi throws food to then from his high chair. We know that they will adore your child as well!
|We live in the state of...|
California where there is never a shortage of things to do. With having ideal weather year-round, we take advantage of all our state has to offer. We live within a short drive of several beaches, mountains, hiking trails, parks, zoos, museums, and restaurants.
We live in a large gated community, which is one of the safest in our city. One of the best elementary schools in the district is within walking distance of our home. We live near Sarah's parents and siblings, as well as having several close friends with children right around the corner from us. What we love about our neighborhood is that it is safe, clean, and everyone is friendly. Children still ride their bikes around the street, play in front yards, and are able to enjoy childhood. Every year for Halloween a theme is selected and houses are decorated for that theme, bringing such joy to the neighborhood children. Every Christmas there is a competition for the best light display!

|Future Contact with Birth Family|
We are open to whatever level of contact with which you feel most comfortable. We would love to share pictures and videos, have visits, send updates, video chat, and be able to tell your child all about you, but will always honor and respect your wishes.
Thank you so much for taking the time to learn about us and our family. We look forward to learning more about you and what your hopes are for your child's future. We promise to keep in contact with you through pictures, videos, text messages, video chats, and visits at whatever level you feel most comfortable.
