Erik, Heidi, & Elliot
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us through our portfolio!
We are Erik, Heidi, Elliot, and Oakey Habbinga. We live in Fort Collins. Erik is a software engineer at a local company. He works very near our home so that he comes home almost every day to have lunch with Heidi and Elliot. Heidi is an architect, but is currently staying at home caring for our son, Elliot, full-time. Oakey is our wonderful dog.
Erik grew up in Colorado Springs with his parents and an older sister. His father is retired military, which required the family to move multiple times before Erik was six years old, finally settling in Colorado.
Heidi grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan with her parents and two brothers. Her older brother is adopted and 16 months older than Heidi. Although her parents fostered him from when he was 6 days old, his adoption was finalized just a few months before Heidi was born.
Heidi and Erik met in Denver about ten years ago. We always knew that we wanted a family and loved the vision of a couple of children to love and explore the world with. After we were married and started our journey growing our family we explored adoption and fertility treatments. Our son Elliot came to us through the latter and we are enjoying him immensely! We would love to add another child to our family and are hoping this time to welcome the child and the birth parents through adoption. We feel that we have the love, energy, resources, and desire to nurture a second child.
Whatever your decision, we wish you the best in your journey. We would love to answer any questions you may have after looking through our portfolio.
With much gratitude,
Erik, Heidi, Elliot, and Oakey
