Honoring your child means honoring you first and that will always be our guiding principal.

Do you consider yourself religious or spiritual?

Religious, in the sense that I'm comforted by the core values the church is built on. While humans are certainly flawed, I believe that what the church stands for is good, and worthy of pursuit.

Daniel

Our nieces love playing with their Uncle Daniel

Victory loves being an auntie

The most special thing I own is...

In this pandemic, it's become my phone - because it keeps me connected to all the people I love and miss seeing in person.

Victory

Mabel is sweet to her core and loved by kids and dogs alike

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

that power wouldn't corrupt human beings; that leaders would lead with humility and not with ego.

Victory

Favorite season and why?

Summer because it means I get to go backpacking and camping in Yosemite.

When you argue, what’s it about?

A miscommunication is the thing that usually creates conflict for us. We're both committed to respectfully talking things through until there is mutual understanding and resolve.

Victory

What is the best word to describe your family?

Warm, loving, affectionate, fun, and silly!

Do you consider yourself religious or spiritual?

A combination of both. I enjoy some church traditions but I also find God in nature and art.

Victory

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

Sailboat. After I got over my seasickness (and fear of sharks!), I'd love to live on the water, and visit oceanside towns and villages all over the world.

Victory

What scares you?

Getting caught in spiderwebs. Being so tall, it happens to me often when I walk under trees, and it gives me the creeps!

Daniel

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

Family, romantic comedy movies from the 90's, chocolate and peanut butter.

Victory

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

be one of respect, guided by empathy and kindness. No matter what, you will always hold an honored place in our lives and in the life and story of your child.

We are the best choice because…

of the family culture we create! Our home is a safe place full of fun, creativity, and warmth; where imagination is encouraged, big dreams are championed and love is the most important thing.

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

sour dough bread and butter and salt. Yum!

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

It makes me think of all the planets I'll never get to visit, particularly, Jupiter.

Daniel

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

more time, more hours in the day. And I'd make sure chocolate had less calories in it.

Daniel

My philosophy on parenting is...

our children will know they are worthy of love just as they are, that we delight in their uniqueness and individuality, that *all feelings* are ok, and that we'll always be a safe place for them.

Victory

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

living the life she dreams about, and feeling happy and fulfilled.

Autumn. The light changes, the air gets crisp, and I love anticipating and planning all the fun we'll have throughout the holidays.

(besides California!) Italy. It's such a romantic and passionate culture and so much incredible art and food.

hopeful for the future

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

Sailboat. I'd love to be able to help clean the oceans, find hidden beaches, and the lost city of Atlantis.
