We hope to provide you, should you choose us, with the comfort that your child will live a life full of adventure and educational opportunities in a loving and supportive environment.
Meet Jessica & Alan!
Thank you for taking this moment to learn more about us and the life we are excited to share with a child. The decision to choose adoption for your child can't be easy and we hope to provide you, should you choose us, with the comfort that they will live a life full of adventure and educational opportunities in a loving and supportive environment.
We are committed to encouraging future children to explore their interests, try new things, and give back to the community that gives to them.
We love going leaf-peeping here in Colorado
We met at work in 2007. We started out as friends and realized we had a lot in common and enjoyed spending time together. We worked hard so that we could have the opportunity to travel many parts of the world and experience different cultures. In 2017, we decided to grow our family so we can share our lives with a child. Trying to conceive biologically and with the support of medical intervention (IVF) hasn't worked out for us as we hoped. However, we are blessed to have the opportunity to grow our family through adoption. For our future children, we value the importance of love and respect for all, a positive attitude, education, hard work, and perseverance to achieve the things wanted in life. We value the opportunities and life experiences that a formal and informal education can provide. We are committed to encouraging our children to explore their interests, try new things, and give back to the community that gives to them. We are excited for the future and our families are thrilled we are having an opportunity to expand our family through adoption. Our family and friends all know how hard it has been and have been supportive of the adoption process since the beginning. We are all looking forward to creating and building memories as this child develops into their own person. Thank you for considering us as parents for your child. We are excited to expand our family and can't wait to provide the love and support all children deserve and need to thrive. We know that you have a hard decision ahead of you, for that we offer you our thoughts and prayers through this difficult journey.
We live on a cul-de-sac that backs up to our beautiful neighborhood park, complete with children's jungle gym, an obstacle course, and more than 5 miles of walking trails around and through our neighborhood that we visit daily with our dogs.

Our home is the hub for providing fun and entertainment to all friends and family. We live on a cul-de-sac that backs up to our beautiful neighborhood park, complete with children's jungle gym, an obstacle course, and more than 5 miles of walking trails around and through our neighborhood that we visit daily with our dogs. As the entertainment hub, we often have friends and family over to watch movies, play games, grill out or cook an Italian dinner, and to share the love of conversation. Our street has children ranging from newborns to college grads. Our neighbors on our circle get together to celebrate the Fourth of July, Halloween, and Christmas. Our community is in Colorado which has the access points to our favorite outdoor place to visit, the Rocky Mountains. Being close to the mountains leads to many great adventures through; hiking, biking, paddle boarding, rock climbing, snowshoeing, skiing, camping, and hunting. We have everything that we could want, including the ability to offer our children amazing life opportunities and diverse experiences.
We generally spend about eight months to a year planning vacations in advance.
Winter Sports with Jessica and Alan
We generally spend about eight months to a year planning vacations in advance. Jessica's favorite vacation was to Ireland where we self-drove the country and daydreamed about opening a B&B that overlooked one of their amazing cliffs. We stayed in a lovely village behind a castle that was reminiscent of Harry's neighborhood in the Harry Potter series. Alan's favorite vacation was to Africa where we went on Safari and dove with great white sharks. Typically, the traditional souvenir we will purchase for ourselves is a picture frame. We both agree that we want to spend more time in Europe, Asia, and exploring the US by road tripping. We are excited to share a world with our child that is rich with different experiences that challenge us to step out of our comfort zone and grow. It's important to us to provide as many different opportunities for a child to support their autonomy and growth. We are fortunate that we have family who also encourages this model and will help with providing unique opportunities. As a family we look forward to many adventures where we can work together to accomplish new challenges and create lasting memories.
