Hi mama! We are so grateful for the opportunity to become parents and can't wait to meet you!

View Larger

Home sweet home! Last year, we bought our first house...and baby's room is almost ready!

Do you consider yourself religious or spiritual?

As practicing Catholics, our faith is at the center of our life! We are very involved with our church -- I taught Kindergarten Sunday School for years, and now lead women's Bible study!

Katherine

During our honeymoon, we got a newlywed blessing at the Vatican. We even held hands with the Pope!

Our wedding day! I got him with the cake <3

If you could choose one type of food to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?

And, nutrition doesn't matter? Definitely Chipotle!

Steven

Celebrating our home team - the Nationals - winning the 2019 World Series!

Favorite season and why?

Definitely the Fall -- perfect temperatures, leaves changing colors and, most importantly, football!

Steven

Three years from now, I hope our birth mom is…..

Happy and healthy! I hope she still has a sense of peace and confidence in her decision to trust us with her child, and knows how deeply we love her!

Katherine

Steven's family lives in Colorado, and we love to go visit and hike! It's one of our favorite places

View Larger

We live minutes from Washington DC and love to explore the city and learn about the amazing history!

View Larger

We both grew up skiing, and still love to go every year!

When you argue, what’s it about?

We don't argue much, but I remember one of our first disagreements when we moved in together after our wedding: Which way do the forks go in the dishwasher? We still disagree on that!

Katherine

Dogs or cats?

Dogs! We have a five year old "puppy," Rhett. We actually got him on Craigslist!! He's a total cuddlebug, and the sweetest dog on the planet. He can't wait for a human sibling to play with!

Katherine

If you could choose one type of food to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Charcuterie! I love, love, love a good cheese board!

Katherine

My philosophy on parenting is...

"Never be afraid to reach for the stars, because if even you fall you will always be wearing a Parentchute (TM)." -Phil Dunphy

Steven

Complete the sentence, “I can’t live without……”

Diet Coke!

Katherine

Favorite season and why?

I love them all! For everything there is a season, right? I love the beach in the summer, hiking in the fall, skiing in the winter and flowers in the spring! That said.... I prefer being warm to cold!

Katherine

In five years, our relationship with you will...

You are in control of this relationship, mama! We will support whatever level of involvement you want to have. But, no matter what, we can promise your child will never doubt how deeply you love them.

Katherine

If you had to live on an RV or sailboat for the rest of your life, which would it be?

An RV for sure. I love the idea of being able to drive anywhere and waking up to a new view every morning. There's also no tidal waves on the road!

Steven

I hope you are...

I hope you know how loved you are. I hope you know how strong you are. But, mostly, I hope you are at peace with the decision you are making for your little one. I am in awe of you, mama!

Katherine

My favorite place in the World is...

My grandparent's house! Every time we pull in the drive, I'm hit with a wave of memories and the same excitement to run through the door that I had when I was a kid.

Katherine

Dogs or cats?

Dogs! I am sure Katherine has already written about our dog, Rhett... He tags along on many of our hikes and travels, and is the best adventure buddy.

Steven

My neighborhood is a good place to raise a family because…

We LOVE our neighborhood! There are a lot of young families, and kids are always biking around and playing outside! We're also only 30 minutes from my parents and sister, so lots of support nearby!
