Hi, there! We're David and Nicole and we live in Maryland, just outside of Washington, DC. We're thankful for the opportunity to share a bit about our family and lives together. We view adoption as a blessing and are looking forward to how it will change our lives. We absolutely love being parents and can't wait for our family to grow.

    User experience researcher

Growing up, Nicole was known by her friends as the "mom" of the group because she always anticipated the needs of others and was the first person to turn to when you needed advice. So it didn't come as much of a surprise that motherhood came so naturally to her! She is always up for anything and loves seeing what sparks a child's imagination. She is playful, nurturing, and balances everything on her plate with grace. Speaking of plates...she is an amazing cook and loves sharing that passion with others!

Building Our Family Through Adoption

Our Letter To You

Dear expectant mother,

We are praying for you and your baby. Whether you choose us or not, we pray that you are safe, that you find comfort during this time, and that you also experience joy along the way.

Through our own experience with pregnancy, we encountered heartbreak, but we’ve also found more joy than we could possibly imagine. We’ve learned to cherish the simple things: that first giggle, each nap spent in each other’s arms, and even every cry. In the same way that we considered our son’s life precious even before he was born, your baby will always know how precious their life is—and that there’s nothing we wouldn’t do for them.

Your baby will also always know how strong and incredibly brave you are. We hope to have a relationship with you so that we and your child can come to know your story and how it fits into our own. Whatever you decide, our promise is that our hearts and our family will always be open to you. We can’t pretend to understand what you are going through, but by choosing to give your baby life, we do know one thing: you are part of a miracle.

With gratitude,
David and Nicole

Our Parenting Style

We approach parenting as a team and are thankful to always be aligned on that front. When it comes to raising a newborn, there’s no such thing to us as “letting the baby cry it out” – every cry, day or night, deserves to be answered. Honestly, we love those moments! We will continue to provide a nurturing, safe environment for your child as they grow. We believe that all children are unique and will always work to understand how we can best parent each child in our home. As parents, we look forward to fostering our children’s interests and will give them every opportunity possible to explore the world and receive an education.

We also look to our faith community to provide support for us as parents. Your child will be raised to trust God’s plan, cherish life, and navigate challenges with grace.

Our Story

Our Home

Our home has 4 bedrooms, a beautiful sunroom, and a cozy basement. Between these spaces and the kitchen is where we spend most of our time. We also have a flat, open backyard bordered by gardens. It’s perfect for playtime!

Our neighborhood is incredibly safe and welcoming. Families are always taking walks and playing outside, and everyone greets each other with hello! and a smile. We especially love how close we are to parks, tennis courts, and nature trails – we can access all of these easily just by heading out the front door!

One of the best parts of our community is that we’re walking distance to our church, and there’s another church on our street that does story time once a month. We love being able to hear God’s word as a family, sing, and engage with others in the community. We really look forward to sharing this with our next child, too.

Our Nursery

Like James’s nursery, creating our next nursery will be an act of love and a reflection of childhood wonder. We look forward to playing with colors, patterns, textures, and light to create a space that is engaging from an early age and can continue to grow with your child. To us, one of the most important things is to include personal touches that reflect our family’s love. We have a friend who plans to paint a custom painting for our next nursery, family heirlooms to be passed down, and items already set aside that remind us of the special joys of childhood.

Our Pets

We have two cats: Grey and Squash. Both are incredibly friendly and gentle… in fact, we’ve been told many times that they have made people change their minds about disliking cats!

Grey was our first and he is a very loyal lap cat. He also enjoys supervising bath time and making sure his “little brother James” doesn’t get too wet 🙂

Squash loves to play…fetch is his favorite game and you can often finding him “asking” you to play by bringing you a toy. They both have such fun personalities and are a special part of our family life.

Our Family

Our family is small but mighty. We have seen firsthand how our family rallies around one another to offer support – we would truly go to the ends of the earth for each other.

Nicole is an only child, and her parents moved here two years ago. They actually live in our neighborhood! We have family dinner at least once a week, and spend time together on the weekends, too.

David is the youngest of three brothers. He has four nieces and nephews, with another on the way! His parents live in Florida and are an incredible source of faith and support for us.

We also consider our closest friends part of our family and are thankful to have so many nearby. Our family and friends are as excited as we are for our family to grow!

Custom Section

What led us to adoption? We are the proud parents to our biological son, James, who has special needs. Even though having a child with special needs wasn’t always in our plans, adoption actually was – we just weren’t sure when. As we settled into our life as a family of three, we really felt God calling us to adoption. We’re so thankful to have that clarity! We see adoption as an incredible blessing and are so excited for this to be part of our family story.

Why this is our greatest strength… We will stop at nothing to make sure each child in our home is able to reach their full potential. Rather than seeing challenges as roadblocks, we get creative and find ways to break through them. Most of all, we know how important it is to advocate for a child, and we will always be their biggest cheerleaders – this is something our children will never outgrow.
