Hello! Thank you for this chance to introduce our family to you! We’re love our fun, active life in Nevada, and always put family first. We love traveling together and spending time with our kids.
We always hoped to raise a big family and we feel strongly that we’re meant to adopt our youngest child. Adoption is already part of our extended family and everyone is excited about our plans to adopt!
We hope to get to know you and to talk about the kind of life you picture for your child. We’d be happy to talk anytime, or even meet in person, if you’d like.
We became great friends when we worked together at a golf course. Our friendship is still the core of our marriage, all these years later. We adore being parents together, and even have fun, as a couple, just doing everyday life and weekend errands together.
As a family, we enjoy getting outside:
• Hiking, paddle boarding, and kayaking
• Tending our yard
• Building snowmen
• Sledding in the mountains
Alena is a warm, giving and loving person; she brings out the best of me. She loves to help others, whether it’s helping someone while grocery shopping or supporting the needs of our community. She loves being a photographer, hiking, snow-shoeing, and horseback riding.
As a mom, Alena is always there for our boys. She enjoys planning day trips and vacations to make lasting memories as a family. Alena is fun, organized, easy-going, and truly enjoys her role as a stay-at-home mom. I know she’ll be a great role model and mother to the little girl we are chosen to adopt.
Adam has been my best friend for a long time and is one of the hardest workers I know. He is an honest, fair man, a protective dad, and a good provider for our family. He’s a true partner as a parent, and very involved with our boys.
We all look forward to Adam’s traditional weekend breakfasts. Adam is even a morning person! Every morning he walks around the house whistling, putting everyone in a good mood.
Adam loves to hike, golf, ski, play soccer, paddle board on the lake and spend time with his family.
We have two sons, Riley and Brady, who are both excited to have a little sister. They will be the best big brothers!
Riley is 8 years old, and he’s sweet, sensitive, a little shy, and is always thinking about something. He loves studying astronomy and anything related to the Titanic. He’s an active boy who enjoys soccer, t-ball, and learning to ski. Riley also likes to read and create pieces of art.
Brady, is 5 years old, always on the move, and happy to be around people. Brady loves his big brother! He’s into butterflies, lady bugs, and dragonflies—once a dragonfly even landed next to him and Brady pet it! He’s been into firetrucks and trains (The Polar Express is his favorite movie!).
Faith & Family
We attend a Catholic church as a family. Our priest makes each mass easy to relate to and teaches real-life lessons which help us in our daily life.
We have a great family who we love to see often. Alena’s grandma had 10 kids, so there are lots of loved ones to keep up with. We have cousins all over the US too, which is fun since we love to travel! We have cousins in New York, Indiana, Chicago, Texas, California, Georgia, St. Louis, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and right here in Nevada. Our families are all supportive of our plans to adopt!
Our Home in Nevada
We live in a suburban neighborhood that is close to lots of parks, playgrounds, great schools, lakes, streams, and many walking trails! We are only 30 minutes from the mountains and our home backs up to the foothills where we like to go exploring and stay active.
Our home has a warm and cozy feel with five bedrooms and a play room. We also have a nursery all set up, in a sweet forest animal theme.
Pets: We are definitely pet people and recently we added a puppy to our lives. River Rose is our happy Golden Retriever who is sweet and special part of our family.
Becoming parents has been a great joy, and honor, for us. Our children will always have our full devotion and support! We promise to love your daughter, to meet her needs, and to encourage her as she pursues her strengths or goals. We promise to provide her with a safe and stable home life, traditional family values, and fun childhood memories.
We will also make sure your child knows how special you are to us, and we will proudly share with her how our family came together through adoption. We are happy to share photos, letters and visits with you, if you’d like.
