If I could change one thing about the World, it would be...

for people to understand that everyone has a unique life experience, and we can all learn from each other. There is so much strength in the differences between us.

Liz

Easter dinner with 4 generations of Liz's family.

Our neighborhood is very walkable, even in the winter! We love checking out all the holiday lights!

If you had to pick a famous person to play you in a movie, who would it be?

Ethan Hawke

Jarrett

There's a farmer's market in our village right down our block. Sometimes we meet alpacas there!

What is the best word to describe your family?

Diverse

Jarrett

We are the best choice because…

we want what is best for you. We know we want to be parents, but we are patiently waiting. Life can be complicated, and we know that we will make the right connection at the right time.

Liz

Never mind our goofy faces-- we had to get this photo on our trip to Austin!

We lost Liz's Dad, Howard, to COVID. He was the most wonderful human, and we miss him so much.

Jarrett probably had more fun on the slide than our nephew Parker!

I hope you are...

able to find peace and experience joy in your life.

Jarrett

Dogs or cats?

Cats. We have two sibling tuxedo kittens who keep us on our toes. We named them after our favorite comedians, Trevor Noah and Tig Notaro. (At the time we didn't realize they had the same initials!)

Jarrett

Favorite season and why?

Spring, because I love planting things, working in the garden, and thinking about what veggies we want to attempt to grow this year!

Jarrett

We participate lots of cancer charity events with our friends and fam. We always make it fun!

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

Content and fulfilled.

Liz

Do you consider yourself religious or spiritual?

Both. We both have a strong appreciation for traditional church services and singing in the choir, but we also believe that the spirit of LOVE is what keeps our lives in motion.

Liz

My philosophy on parenting is...

Always give them choices.

Jarrett

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

we live in a village right outside the city, with a small-town vibe. We love taking walks and bike rides on the trails nearby. There are lots of young families and great schools in our area.

Jarrett

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the night sky?

It makes me feel that anything is possible.

Jarrett

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the night sky?

Two things: midnight blue is my favorite color; and I love how stars keep appearing the longer you look for them!

Liz

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

Liz, our cats, laughter.

Jarrett

The most special thing I own is...

A letter my Mom wrote me when I was 13 telling me how proud I made her. She passed away when I was in college.

Liz

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

Jarrett, our cats, yoga, and cozy pajamas. (And Kohl's Cash!)

Liz

If you had to pick a famous person to play you in a movie, who would it be?

Molly Ringwald if my hair is short and red; Rachel McAdams when I use the flatiron.
