Nathan + Robyn

We know that we haven't met you yet, but we already know that we admire you. You had a lot of options and a tough decision to make, and we applaud your decision for making an adoption plan. We hope this profile shows who we are and why we would be a good fit for you and your child. We also hope you enjoy getting to know us through photos. We are more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

Why Adoption Is Right For Us

'Why Adoption is Right for Us' Image

We learned we were unable to have biological children, and through that journey we found adoption. We are so excited at the thought of being parents.

How We Picture Ourselves As Parents

We already know what room in our home will become the nursery and are working on getting everything set up so that we will be ready when the time comes.

We hope to raise a caring child that respects rules - even if they test them from time to time - and that knows what it means to be loved.

A Little Bit About Nathan...

'A little bit about Nathan...' Image

He says:

Drummer, artist, and baseball nut who loves travel, movies, and good times with friends and family. Born and raised in a big city but currently enjoying married life in a smaller town.

She says:

It didn't take me long to fall in love with Nathan. He is kind and caring, but also keeps me on my toes and lets me know if I just need to calm down and take a deep breath. In many ways we are alike, but I also appreciate our differences.

A Little Bit About Robyn…

He says:

From the start, Robyn and I were both on the same page about one day becoming parents - I knew she was "the one" not long after our blind date. She is an honest and caring person, and treasures family above all else. She is a natural with children, and I know she has what it takes to be an amazing mother.

She says:

We live in the town I grew up in, and for that I'm very thankful. This town used to seem so small but now it feels just right. I grew up in a very loving household. Things weren't perfect, but I seldom even realized that. I'm very close to my family and am fortunate to have great friends. I've worked at the same place for 12 years and still love my job. I was so blessed when Nathan came into my life and can't wait to build a family with him.

Travel

We both love to travel. We have been to plenty of the big places in Texas - Austin, Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio - but we have also been all over the country and to Europe. We spent our honeymoon in Paris and can't wait to go back. In recent years we've also been to Mexico, Atlanta, and Hollywood. One of the best parts of traveling is eating local food. We always make eating a part of the travel plan, and try to visit as many museums as possible.

We will enjoy taking our child on trips in the future. Of course, we would plan an eventual Disney trip, as well as all the many sights and sounds around Texas. Another guaranteed on the list is a trip to Washington D.C. It's fun to get away, and almost impossible not to learn something on each trip.

We Love Halloween!

Nathan has always enjoyed dressing up in creative costumes for Halloween. Once he was old enough to come up with things on his own, his parents would help make his costumes come to life. Each year our friends ask, "So, what is he doing this year?"

Of course, we plan on letting our kid have the coolest costumes on the block for trick-or-treating. Our town has some great places for this holiday!

Robyn has also enjoyed Halloween, but it's definitely been stepped up a notch since meeting Nathan. She enjoys doing different types of costumes than Nate, but on occasion will borrow his costumes. Halloween is a family affair and we love having fun with it.

We Also Love Our Friends!

We enjoy spending time with them to watch movies, watch sports, do trivia, go to concerts, and attend events. We both have friends that go all the way back to childhood. Our friends vary in many ways and we are thankful for that.

We Love Art And Music...

Between the two of us we have just about everything in our music collections. Because of Nathan, Robyn has learned a lot of Metallica lyrics. Because of Robyn, Nathan has learned more of the Disney songbook. Nathan is also a very talented artist.

... But We Also Love Sports.

Both of us were raised watching sports with our family. Nathan followed baseball closely while Robyn was raised on football. We both played sports as children but thrived as teenagers in the fine arts. Nathan was in band and did art while Robyn enjoyed performing in plays.
