Terryn and Erik
Dear Birth Mother
Thank you for taking a moment to look at our profile. We are honored that you are considering us. Hopefully, these pages offer you a glimpse into our life and the life we will provide your child. We will share everything we have and everything we are with your child, and your child will know about you and the love, bravery, and strength that went into your decision. We have one daughter, Mae, that we welcomed into our life through adoption in 2018. It has been an incredible blessing to be parents and we are excited to welcome another child into our family through adoption!
Erik and I met in 2010, using the online dating site eharmony.com and have been together ever since! We moved to Aurora, Colorado, in early 2018, and bought our forever home. We became parents to our sweet Mae in June 2018 through domestic adoption – she was born bright and early in the morning, and we’ve been in love ever since! Our lives have changed so much since she was born, and we couldn’t be happier to be her parents. We love to go out as a family to the petting zoo, playground, children’s museum, pool, library, and more. We also take time for each other and have frequent date nights when we go out to dinner and a movie. We are always seeking to create new traditions that our kids will cherish. We are excited to become a family of 4 and make some new memories!
Erik was born and raised in Tucson, AZ with his little sister, Megan. They were raised by their mom. Erik has always enjoyed riding his bike and is a big fan of Legos. He attended the University of Arizona and later graduated from Eastern New Mexico University and received his Masters in Business from the University of Colorado, Pueblo. Erik is in the Air Force National Guard and works in his civilian career as an engineering manager. He enjoys hiking, going for walks, rock climbing, table tennis, board games, video games, and Star Trek. He loves to teach Mae about sports, the outdoors, and science and can’t wait to teach our next child too!
Erik is one of the happiest people I have ever met. He finds joy and delight everywhere he looks, especially in his daughter. I admire the way he looks at the world. He loves being a father and can’t wait to add another child to the family. At heart, he is just a big kid himself.
Terryn is from a small town in New Jersey. She has two sisters and a brother. Terryn graduated from the University of New Mexico and received her Masters in Counseling from Adam State in Colorado. She has spent most of her life caring for children in one or another and thoroughly enjoys being a mother. Her favorite hobby is knitting and she makes clothing and accessories for herself and everyone she loves. Terryn’s mother and older sister also knit, so you can be sure any baby in this family will be clothed in well-loved knitted items!
Terryn is a wonderful person full of love and compassion. She is always thinking of others and doing what she can to make them more comfortable and happier. Her passion for life is amazing, and she inspires me with her capacity for love. She loves being a mom to Mae and is excited to share her love with another child. Terryn is looking forward to teach our new child about knitting, books, and traveling!
Mae is our one-year-old daughter, adopted from Nevada at birth. She is the light of our lives! She is a curious, easygoing little girl, who loves interacting with other kids. She will be an enthusiastic big sister!
We live in Aurora, Colorado, just outside of Denver. We live in a six bedroom home in a fantastic neighborhood where our children will have their own rooms and a playroom on the main floor. Every weekend we spend some time exploring all that the Denver area has to offer, including the mountains, lakes, and many outdoor activities. Our neighborhood is in the best school district in the city and has many diverse families with children!
Koda is our little poodle/shih tzu mix. She is about eight years old. She is very attached to Terryn and follows her everywhere she goes. Koda loves children and likes to sniff and lick their little hands and faces.
Our families are both large and spread out around the country. Terryn’s mother and younger sister liver in South Florida. Her dad, older sister, brother, niece, nephew, aunts, uncles, and cousins all live in New Jersey. Erik’s little sister, Megan, has a two-year-old and they live in Tucson, AZ. We visit each of our families several times a year for holidays and summer vacations. Our favorite pastime is getting together with friends and family to play board games.
Our families have been very supportive of our adoption plans, welcoming Mae into our family as one of our own. Everyone is very excited about bringing home a sibling for Mae!
We want to thank you for taking this time to review our profile. We know you are making a difficult decision, and we honor you for it. If we are so blessed as to be chosen by you, we will cherish your child as our own for all the days of our lives.
