Why We Chose Adoption

Our Happy Family

When Kendall was 16, she was told that it would be a miracle for her to ever get pregnant and carry the baby to term due to her endometriosis and poly cystic ovary syndrome. So, from a young age, she knew she would adopt. When we were dating Kendall let Nathan know from the very beginning that she more than likely would not be able to give birth to his biological children. Nathan's response had her falling even more in love, "Then we will adopt. It doesn't matter to me if my children share my DNA or not, I will love them all the same." Because we both have many friends and family that were adopted, have adopted or have been birth mothers, we have always seen adoption so positively and knew we would grow our family through adoption whether we were able to conceive our own or not. While working towards our plan to adopt, we had two miscarriages and then Maverick came along in 2015 as our rainbow baby. Since then we have had four more miscarriages. We have always wanted to adopt and we believe God has brought us here for a reason. We are so in love with the child we have yet to meet that we know is supposed to be a part of our family!

Cultural Diversity in Our Family

Kendall & Her Sister-in-Law Hiking in the Philippines

Our family is full of diversity. Kendall has two sister-in-laws that are from South America, a plethora of very close cousins from Mexico and multiple cousins that are Native American. On Nathan's side of the family we have two gorgeous nieces and nephews that are half African American. Our immediate family alone speaks Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Cantonese, Mandarin, German, Tswana and Tagalog fluently. Nathan speaks Romanian and Moldovan fluently along with small amounts of Russian. Kendall speaks a little Spanish and is currently learning Romanian. Our family is a melting pot of languages and cultures and we are so proud of it!

Our families not only accept diversity, but we celebrate it. We believe in embracing one another's uniqueness and if we are chosen to add a child of a different race to our family we will be overjoyed. We believe that the best way to handle diversity is to speak openly about it in our home. We believe some of the biggest responsibilities we have as parents is loving our children unconditionally, and most of all teaching them to love themselves and the skin they are in. We want our children to celebrate their differences, to embrace their race and to love themselves. We believe all of that starts at home and we can not wait to help our children begin building those foundations of self-love and self-confidence.

Fun Facts About Us:

  • Nathan speaks fluent Romanian due to his time living in Romania.
  • Kendall received a full ride scholarship to college due to her skills at Volleyball. But a torn ACL a week before she signed her contract kept her from continuing to play competitively.
  • Nathan joined the Marines at age 17 and went to Iraq shortly after his 19th birthday.
  • Nathan's specialty in the Marines was missiles and he was a Sharp Shooter.
  • Kendall grew up in northern California near the ocean. She grew up surfing, fishing and abalone diving.
  • Nathan is the oldest of five, with four younger sisters, and Kendall is the youngest of six with four older brothers and one older sister. To say we love having big families and want one of our own is an understatement!
  • Kendall's older brother was a successful child actor. Kendall grew up playing on movie sets for the first seven years of her life. She met many high profile actors on set, such as Bill Cosby, Michael Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, Robin Williams and Fran Drescher.
  • Kendall's entire immediate family speaks Spanish.
  • Kendall is planning to publish a novel in the very near future.
  • Nathan is so tall (6'5") and his feet are so large that we have to special order his shoes online and go to specific stores to find clothing in his size.

    Our House and Neighborhood

    Our Home

    We live in Colorado, just fifteen minutes from the gorgeous rocky mountains. Our house is in a quiet cul-de-sac. We have a four-bedroom home that we love. Kendall's favorite room in the house is our large sun room facing the backyard. The best feature of our home is our backyard. It is nearly half an acre of green grass and large apple trees. During the summer we spend most of our time in the backyard. We like to have barbecues and dinners outside on the patio. Also in our backyard we have a playset, equipped with two yellow swings and green slide. We also have a play house painted to match our home with pretty potted flowers out front. There is a fire pit that we have used for cul de sac s'mores parties. We are close to our neighbors, having a get together every few months. There are three other families in the neighborhood that have children. Our neighborhood is safe and tucked away from all busy streets. A majority of our neighbors are firemen, policemen and health professionals. Near to our house there is a lake we enjoy walking to and many beautiful parks. There is even a fun little kid-friendly water park within a five-minute drive. We absolutely love where we live and know that your child would love it as well.

    Our Extended Families

    Kendall's Family

    We are very family oriented people. We are both from large families that we are close to, but we are closest to Kendall's family. Kendall has five siblings and 14 nieces and nephews who are so excited for another child to join our loud and loving family.

    Cousin Gift Exchange

    Since we all live far apart, we get together every year at our family ranch in Arizona for a week or two each summer. We play games, cook food, swim, ride horses and go on adventures together. We make it a point to do Christmas with Kendall's parents and at least one of Kendall's siblings every year. We spend most holidays with Kendall's aunt and uncle, as well as many of her cousins that live in the same town as us.

    Your child would never want for a playmate as we have a son who is thrilled to have a little sibling, and 11 young cousins in the same town that we see nearly every week for family dinner!

    Our family, extended and immediate, are full of laughter, love and kindness. We have discussed our adoption plan with all of our family and knew what the response would be, resounding excitement, love and support. They are so excited to meet this child and can't wait to surround him or her with love.

    From Us to You

    Hello,

    We are Kendall and Nathan and we are so excited that you have taken the time to read this letter! First and foremost, we would like to tell you that we know this must be a very complicated time in your life. We want you to know that we think you are so very brave and selfless to even be contemplating adoption. As parents ourselves, we understand a portion of the emotions you must be experiencing. We want to again thank you for even looking at our profile as possible adoptive parents for your child.

    We would like to take some time to tell you more about ourselves to see if we would be a good fit for you. We are Kendall and Nathan, we have a son named Maverick who is the sweetest boy and two dogs who we love nearly like children. We have been married for seven years, together for a little over eight years and have known each other for nearly a decade. We met while Kendall was going to cosmetology school and Nathan was active in the Marines.

    We both have wanted to adopt and known we were going to adopt for most of our lives. When thinking of what our ideal adoption situation would be, we would like it to be as open as possible or as open as the birth parents would like. Having both had friends and family that were adopted or were birth mothers, we believe that having open communication with the child's birth family is important. We would like to exchange letters, pictures, emails and, if you are open to it, we would like to have social media contact as well.

    What we care most about in this world are our children, and if you placed your child in our care, yours would be no different. We want to give our children the best in life. The ultimate goal is to raise healthy, happy, kind, well-adjusted adults. We believe in giving 110% for our family. We are loving, hard working, friendly and funny people. A favorite quote in our house is, "A day without laughter is a day wasted." We love to have fun and work hard to make sure our kids have a magical childhood. We are protective of those we love and we believe that love makes a family, not necessarily blood. We live by a wealth of family and friends with young children, so your child would never be without a playmate, friendship or support.

    We are an active family that enjoys traveling and seeing new sights. Our goal is to take at least one international trip per year along side our multiple domestic vacations every year. We both have careers that allow us to have a flexible schedule while still being able to provide for our family, which is a godsend for us. We believe that being active is essential to life. If you placed your child in our care we would make sure that they are offered every opportunity to excel in sports, music, art, whatever they chose. We believe in following your dreams and having the tools and support to do so.

    It is a sense of pride for us that our house is a safe and peaceful place. We believe in open communication and having respect for one another. Our promise to you is that should you choose to place your child in our care, they will never wonder of their place in the world because they will always know that they have a home with us. They will never want for anything and most importantly, they will never go a day without knowing how very loved they are.

    Thank you for taking the time to read our words and we hope that you received a bit of insight into our family.
