Our Children

Aden and Connor Hiking Trails Behind Our House

We have two precious boys, Aden age 7 and Connor age 5.

Aden is thoughtful, kind, intelligent, athletic and curious. He loves adventures, sports, animals and science. He is enthusiastically engaged in learning about almost anything, and loves participating in social activities. He is very sweet and loving to Connor. We are blessed that Aden is not a jealous child, he is Connor's biggest fan and friend. Aden loves and takes interest in babies and young toddlers. He often plays sweetly with his friends younger siblings. Aden could not be more excited to welcome a new child into his family with all the love he has to give.

Connor is quiet, calm, thoughtful and very intelligent. He is an old soul who likes watching, learning and thinking. He is an avid reader and wants to be a math teacher. Connor gets recognized often in school for his kindness and niceness by other children and his teachers. He deeply adores his brother Aden and is also so excited to cherish a new child in his family.

Our Promise to You

We are seeking the gift of adoption because we feel there is an abundance of love, joy and peace in our family to share with another child. Our promise to you is that we will always love a new child abundantly and unconditionally. We have a peaceful and warm home that will provide a supportive, engaging and hopefully inspirational childhood.

We promise to tell this child every single day that we love them and are proud of them, unconditionally. We promise to provide whatever support is necessary for this child to explore the world, dream and pursue their independent passions in life. We aim to support their happiness, growth and self-discovery in any way that we can. We promise to support a new child in learning about their culture and history. We promise to never minimize their lived experience as they learn about their adoption. We promise to continue to learn about how we might support them over time. We promise to always listen to them. This child is the most precious gift to our family, and we promise to reflect on the sanctity of this gift often.

Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other

On Vacation in Mexico

Nick is kind and patient. He is an exceptional father who always prioritizes quality time with his kids and his family first. Nick has a calm and quiet demeanor, and is always actively supporting the kids with their school work, doing daily chores and planning for family adventures. He is detail oriented, thoughtful and a peacemaker. He is level-headed under pressure and a great team leader. What I most admire about Nick is his kindness.

Nicole is such an incredibly inspiring partner. She has seemingly boundless energy, for our family and our adventures and learning and needs, in addition to her work and running. She runs every day, and loves sharing exercise and habits of healthy living with our children. Nicole is wonderfully smart, and her wisdom and engagement with ideas and current events continue to surprise and delight me. Her dedication to our children and supporting them in whatever they need is immense.

Our House and Neighborhood

Our Home

We live in a beautiful kid-centric community in between Santa Barbara and Los Angeles. Our house is 25 minutes from the ocean, and backs up into hundreds of miles of mountains and trails. Our community is known for the best school systems in Southern California, as well as the endless parks, playgrounds, and youth sports/arts/music/community programs.

Our house is 2800 square feet, with 4 bedrooms, a large family room and large playroom. Our large backyard is designed for children. We have a large playfield (about 4000 square ft) with all kinds of kids sports equipment, playground toys, and a dedicated space for kids arts and crafts.

We have a small grape vineyard, fruit trees and multiple gardening beds that we have planted on the hill section of our property. We enjoy watching incredible wildlife from our backyard. The property is fully fenced in, and has snake fencing around the perimeter to protect children. We love to encourage being outside and exploring nature in a safe environment.

Our Extended Families

Fishing with Grandpa

We have been blessed with tremendous family support to help support, love and nurture a child.

Grandpa and grandma on Nicole's side live 10 minutes from our house. In the summers, we go to their house every weekend. Grandpa teaches the kids to swim and grandma makes delicious family meals. We travel with grandma and grandpa several times a year for hiking, kayaking and beach adventures together. Most importantly, both grandma and grandpa could not be more excited to cherish a new child.

Grandma Teaching the Recorder

Nicole also has a younger brother that lives 20 minutes away. He is is great with kids. He loves surfing and cannot wait to teach our children to enjoy the ocean. He is very excited to help support a new child in our family.

Nick's extended family includes his mother, who lives in Michigan, and his sister, who lives in Sweden. Both Nick's mom, or "Mimsy" as we call her, and Nick's sister come to visit during Christmas time for 4-6 weeks every year. We enjoy going to holiday shows, decorating, baking, playing board games, reading by the Christmas tree and enjoying family time together. Both Mimsy and Nick's sister are thrilled that we are welcoming a child into our family.

From Us to You

We are so deeply grateful that you have considered us to be a loving option for your child. We will always cherish you and this incredible blessing that will so positively transform our lives. We promise to always provide unconditional love and nurturing and support for this incredible child.

We have been very happily married for ten years and have two joyful children. Our home is warm, loving, stable, peaceful, and supportive. We are so grateful for our family to be blessed with another child to cherish and support unconditionally. We are committed to supporting your child as they grow and learn, and encourage them to express themselves freely, to follow them as they learn their interests, and provide the opportunities and support to realize them as best we can. We value unconditional love, respect for the feelings of children, and trust. We will do all that we can to help nurture a happy, healthy, growing child. We have always wanted three children, and are so deeply grateful to you for considering us for a loving adoption.

We currently have two wonderful boys, Connor age 5 and Aden age 7, and a small gentle dog named Georgie. Aden and Connor couldn’t be more thrilled at the prospect of a new sibling. They have been eagerly preparing for the arrival of a brother or sister, setting aside toys and books they have outgrown but look forward to sharing with a new younger sibling. Connor and Aden cannot wait to play with another sibling child, teach them, help them, and make new family memories. They cannot wait to welcome a new sibling into our loving family, and work hard to make them feel accepted and loved. We believe every child deserves to be loved, supported, and celebrated for who they are. We are committed to creating a home where all children feel safe, valued, nurtured, loved and respected.

This is almost certainly a time of great uncertainty and transition - please know that we are committed to making the adoption process as smooth and respectful as possible. We will keep you as informed as you desire to be on your child’s well-being and progress. We are open to sharing photos, letters, updates, emails, and more contact- depending on your desires. We are committed to respecting your wishes and boundaries and will do our best to ensure our communication is open and honest. We will do everything in our power to ensure this precious child has a happy and fulfilling life. We are eternally grateful to you for considering such an enormous and selfless gift and trusting others with such a responsibility.

You will always hold the most special place in our hearts. We are here to support you however we can. Your selflessness and love have brought the most profoundly positive impact on our lives. We will always be grateful to you. We promise to love and cherish this beautiful child with all our heart, mind and soul.

Most Sincerely,

Nick & Nicole
