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

wonder at how vast it is

-Danny

I hope our birth mother is...

Confident in choosing us, and knowing that her child is in the best possible care.

-Danny

My philosophy on parenting is...

if the child has stability, love, and is given guidance they will thrive in this healthy environment. They should be able to explore the world, be creative, and be taught how to be kind to others.

My favorite place in the World is...

The Rocky Mountains. I love the beauty of all the mountains, and all the different adventures they inspire.

-Danny

Do I have kids? How do they feel about a sibling?

We have a son and he would be excited to have another child to play with.

-Ingrid

Dogs or cats?

Dogs. We don't have any pets but if we got a pet in the future it would be a dog because of the companion they can be and you can take them for walks.

-Ingrid

We are the best choice because…

You will never have to worry whether or not your child is deeply loved and cared for. They will have every opportunity to become the best version of themselves.

-Danny

Do you consider yourself religious or spiritual?

I believe in loving God and loving people, not necessarily a big set of rules to follow made by other people.

-Danny

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

Sandra Bullock. Many of her characters she has played in other movies I relate to.

-Ingrid

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

RV. Because I'm a people person, and would get lonely out on a boat. But I love the ocean, so would probably park my RV at the beach.

-Danny

Hiking in Alaska on a family trip.

Trip to Yellowstone National Park with friends.  We want to visit all the national parks!

My favorite place in the World is...

The beach. I love being outside at the beach watching the ocean and doing all the beach activities.

-Ingrid

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

It's safe, we have nice neighbors and there are fun areas to play.

-Danny

Do you consider yourself religious or spiritual?

Spiritual. I have a relationship with the Lord and that is what is most important to me. We also attend church as a family regularly to foster our relationship and be with others who also believe.

-Ingrid

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

An RV, we love to travel and take road trips together. I love to be by the water and do activities on the water, but would rather explore by land. We could camp in different places and go hiking.

-Ingrid

Favorite season and why?

Summer. I love being outside and being warm. Traveling, camping, music festivals, running, and biking are just a few of the things I love in the summer.

-Danny

In five years, our relationship with our birth mother will...

Be whatever she wants it to be within reason. We are very open to having a close relationship with her, but will not push or force anything either.

-Danny

Do I have kids? How do they feel about a sibling?

We have a son who we also adopted. He is only 17 months old though, so doesn't really understand the concept of getting a sibling. He will be a great big brother though!!!

-Danny

If I could choose one type of food to eat for the rest of my life, it would be:

Any kind of Asian food: Chinese, Thai, Japanese are some of my favorites.

-Ingrid

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

that ice cream was good for you and broccoli was bad for you :)

-Danny

What is the best word to describe our family?

Fun!!

-Danny

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

How amazing it is that I am so small in comparison to this great big world. I also love to learn the constellations and look for them on a clear summer night.

-Ingrid

I'm super competitive when it comes to...

Sports

-Danny

Dogs or cats?

Dogs

-Danny

My best friend would describe me as...

Down to earth, a good listener, reliable, and thoughtful.

-Ingrid

I hope our birth mother is...

able to trust us with this life changing decision. We will dedicate our lives to caring for this child. We hope can let us into her life some so we can share what we know about her with this child.

-Ingrid

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

there is some diversity, walking trails, and a common park area with a playground. This allows for us to get to know our neighbors and our kids can have friends to play with.

-Ingrid

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

Happy and healthy. We want the best for her always. Whatever that may look like for her.

-Danny

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

Vin Diesel, because he would make me look way cooler than I really am :)

-Danny

In five years, our relationship with our birth mother will...

hopefully have grown into a beautiful relationship and we would have visited at least once if the birth mother was comfortable with this. We would view them as extended family.

-Ingrid

We are the best choice because…

We will be ourselves. Who you see on our profile is what you can expect when you meet us. We will be devoted to carrying for this child for a lifetime and help the child become his or her best self.

-Ingrid

My favorite website is (...not your Facebook page :)):

Zillow. I do real estate for a living, so love checking out houses, rental properties, and dreaming of a beach house some day.

-Danny

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

A challenge or goal. I get pretty bored if I don't have something I'm striving to achieve, learn, or get better at.

-Danny

When we argue, what’s it about?

Usually because we are misunderstanding what each other is trying to say. We just have to slow down and talk it through.

-Danny

Favorite season and why?

Summer for sure! I love warm weather. I enjoy being active and getting outside which is so much easier to do in the summer. The sunshine and warm weather makes me happy.

-Ingrid

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

in contact with us if she wants to be and is able to get updates from us on how the child is doing. We hope she is happy in her life and doing what she wants to do with her life.

-Ingrid

My philosophy on parenting is...

Be as loving and supportive as possible, but don't be afraid to lead, guide, and correct when needed.

-Danny

My best friend would describe me as...

Adventurous, fun loving, social, and sometimes stubborn.

-Danny

What scares you?

Snakes...I hate snakes!!!
