We are Gabe & Nikki, and we are humbled to have you get to know us a little bit! We pray that you will find peace and know you are loved as you make this important decision in whatever way you believe is best. When Nikki was in high school, she found out she would never be able to carry children. A big verse for her has been Psalm 139:14, which says "I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made." We pray that you too would know that you and your baby are fearfully and wonderfully made. Since we have known about Nikki not being able to carry children from the early stages of our relationship, we have always known that God may grow our family through adoption!
We first met through our church in 2011 and have been married for 5 years now! We live just outside Denver, Colorado and love getting to soak up the beauty of the mountains! We love getting outside with our dogs to hike some trails, enjoy an evening walk around the neighborhood, or a bike along the nearby creeks. Our street opens up to a park with a playground and elementary school, so there are always kids out playing and people out connecting. We also think we are very skilled at relaxing with a good movie on the couch or enjoying a meal and good conversations with friends.
Gabe works from home and is a Technical Account Manager for a software company. He enjoys working for a growing company that lets him pursue his interests and seeks to be a leader in the industry. Nikki is a Physical Therapist for a home care company. Once we have a child, she plans to stay home and possibly work part-time if/when the time is right. Gabe's parents live about 10 minutes away, and his Mom is ready and eager to help if Nikki were to do some work.
Both sides of our families can barely contain themselves with excitement as we pursue adoption! Gabe's two younger siblings were adopted as well. We have such a great support network of friends who are thrilled to come alongside us as we grow our family. We still attend the same church where we met, and there are lots of families in our church community who have adopted as well!
Thank you for taking time to get to know us! If you decide to make an adoption plan and choose us, we would respect your comfort level with an open relationship. We would love to figure out together what the specifics could look like, but regardless, your child would know the great love you have for him/her! We pray for clarity in your decision and know that we think you are brave, full of love, and a person of great strength.
With Prayers for You,
Gabe & Nikki
