Domestic Adoption

We are honored that you are taking the time to get to know more about us as individuals and as a family. As you learn more about us and see photos from our lives, we hope you can see the genuine love we have to give.

In 2013, our paths crossed on our college campus, and those chance run-ins got us curious about each other. Joining the same intramural basketball team turned out to be the real game-changer, sparking more chats, leisurely strolls, and eventually dating. Fast forward two years, and we'd seamlessly woven our lives together. Then, in January 2015, Ashton popped the question and proposed to Taylor on Rabbit Mountain, a special spot in Colorado near Ashton's hometown. In June of that same year, we married in front of 300 of our friends and family. We bought our first house in 2019 and have loved making it into a home. In 2021, Ashton surprised Taylor by buying a puppy. We named him Monoroe and his presence in our home has been a great addition. Here we are in 2024, a year that will hopefully allow us to grow our family by welcoming a baby. We have read so many books and prepared for this next journey well. 

The values we hope to share with a child are rooted in humility and community. Valuing those two things will hopefully help our child grow into adults who contribute meaningfully to society, see people as inherently worthy despite their circumstances, and can encourage others to achieve their potential as we hope to do with them as they grow up. We value hard work, integrity, critical thinking, and the truth that things in this life are worth having are often not the most convenient or easy. Our child will receive equal parts accountability and grace, and we hope that they will also be able to extend that to others as they grow up. We also value rest and fun, because what is life if it's not to be enjoyed?

Thank you for wading through the difficult parts of this season in your life. We know you are strong and full of courage. We hope that your child grows into a strong and courageous person, too. In the time you spend learning about us please know that we are praying for the best things for you and your child. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us!
