Our Favorite Vacation Spot
Family Fun on the Lake

Our favorite summer vacation spot is Shaver Lake in the Sequoia Mountain Range. Brooke’s family has been going there ever since she was a little girl and some of her favorite childhood memories were made there. We camp at the same campground every year, usually in the same spot. It has wonderful facilities and fun activities, such as scavenger hunts and bird watching for kids. Some of our favorite daytime activities we enjoy while there are jet skiing, boating, horseback riding, having picnics and playing games lakeside. In the evenings we love to barbeque, hang out around the campfire and eat S'mores.

We also enjoy snowboarding and skiing! We love traveling nationwide to find great snow, but our favorite winter vacation spot is located in our home state of California, Mammoth Lakes. Days are spent on the slopes, taking classes to improve our skills or hanging out as a family off the lifts, drinking hot cocoa at the lodge or venturing out on snowshoes to take in the beautiful surroundings. In the evenings we enjoy outings in the village, eating dinner at a local restaurant or ordering pizza and watching movies in our hotel room. These are both perfect locations for us to spend time together relaxing, having fun as a family and making lifetime memories. We would love for your child to be a part of these memories and for them to be a part of ours!

Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
So Happy Together

Brooke About Lance:

One of my greatest blessings in life is my husband Lance. He is caring, reliable, responsible and supportive. He's loving, affectionate and a fantastic dad to our son and fur babies. He works hard to help support our family and I always feel that I can trust his judgment. Lance has a great sense of humor that helps us get through tough times. He is my teammate in life and I don't think I could have made a better decision in life than marrying him.

Lance About Brooke

I am truly the luckiest man on earth in that Brooke is my wife. She is the most caring and loving person I have ever met. Brooke is always thinking of others and what fun, nice or sweet things she can do for them. Her love for our son is like no other I have ever witnessed. The two of them together are always having the greatest time, each day is better than the previous. Brooke wears her heart on her sleeve. She is one of the funniest people I know. Her sense of adventure is amazing and is one of the reasons we travel and see new things.

Why We Chose Adoption

When we envision our future we have always pictured ourselves with a large family, with children that are close and will be lifelong friends, much like the relationships we have with our siblings. When our son was three we received the news that it was no longer safe for Brooke to carry a baby. Once we had a chance to reflect and accept that truth, we began to discuss the opportunity of adoption. Now with the hope of adopting in our future, there is a sense of anticipation and excitement. We are looking forward to the day when we receive the call that we have been selected to be the parents of a child and that our dreams of expanding our family are coming true. We are so excited to be parents again and thankful adoption gives us this chance. The chance to experience all the special firsts and have another child to love would mean the world to us!
