We met 12 years ago, became friends first and then dated a and have been happily married for seven years. We are eternal soul mates. We think alike, and have so many shared interests we know we are meant for one anotherThree years ago we adopted our son, Evan, through open adoption.
We love animals and have two dogs and three cats. We also love music, art and dining. We live near our families and have very close relationships with them. With a very supportive family, we have plenty of help when in time of need! As parents we encourage family values, positive behavior, spirituality, an excellent education, the arts, and a good sense of humor.
We live in a fabulous four bedroom house in Salinas, California on the beautiful Monterey Peninsula.There are many beaches, parks and outdoor activities available in our area. We are members of the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Bonfante Gardens theme park and visit often.
Since we cannot have a baby on our own and you may not be ready to become a parent, open adoption allows each of us the opportunity to fulfill our dreams. You as the birthmother would be able to go ahead with your plans and still keep in contact with your baby and us the opportunity to complete our family. You will love the life we will be able to offer to your child!
We adopted our son, Evan almost three years ago at birth. We have an open and loving relationship with Evan's birthmother, Michelle. We are forever grateful for her generous gift and will always welcome her into our lives. She adores Evan and they have a special relationship which we encourage through love and support. She has become a part of our family and we love her very much. We would love to adopt a second child to complete our family. We know the importance of having siblings and that they share a special bond. Nothing would make us happier than to have two children to love, cherish and adore. With our second adoption, we welcome continued contact with you, if you choose that option.
Steve is an excellent cook and enjoys music, animals and playing guitar. His musical influences are Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Steve, of course loved being a daddy to Evan. They enjoy "manly" things like "train hunting" and playing in the backyard. Steve loves to buy Evan Thomas the Tank train toys and can often be spotted in the toy department at Target! He is a fabulous father and loves children. He and Evan have a very special bond and share many loving moments together. Steve also has a 20-year-old daughter, Jessica, who also just happens to adore children!
