Thank you for considering adoption and for giving us the opportunity to introduce ourselves.
We currently live in Boulder and enjoy taking advantage of the outdoors. We love to camp, hike, and have a game of catch in the park around the corner. While indoors, we enjoy watching movies, reading, playing board/card games, and cooking new, fun recipes.
We first met while we were both working for FirstBank in 2010. In 2012, Katie left the bank to pursue her career as a math teacher and is now in her fourth year of teaching. Jacob has been with the bank for almost 10 years and he was recently promoted to the role of Mortgage Loan Coordinator.
Outside of work, we love to travel! Jacob has family in Colorado and Virginia; Katie has family in California. We both come from very big families (as you can see on the next page), and both of our families have adopted members to add to the mix. We take 3-5 trips across the country every year to visit. We also have a personal goal of going somewhere new at least once every year, and dedicate some of our paychecks every month to a travel fund that can only be used for vacations.
On our first date, we talked about our dream of getting married and having a family. We knew going into our relationship that we were unable to have children on our own. That did not stop us from imagining how much fun it will be to take our kids to ballgames, see their faces on Christmas morning, go on family road trips, visit Disneyland, and encourage them to explore the world around them.
We hope the following pictures illustrate our life together and the dreams that we hope to share with our children one day. We wish you the best of luck on this journey.
