We want to start by thanking you, whoever you are, for taking the time to read this and be a part of our adoption journey! We cannot wait to be parents and to build our beautiful family together.

A little about Colin and Emma - We met way back in the sixth grade and went to school together in Highlands Ranch right up until we graduated high school. We went different ways for college and for a few years after, but then reconnected in 2014. We went on our first date in May of that year and there was an immediate connection. We talked for hours and literally began falling in love that very night. We began building our life together in 2015 when Colin proposed in Emma’s favorite place, Coeur D’Alene, Idaho – on a boat on the lake to be specific. We had our beautiful wedding in May of 2016, and as obvious as it sounds, it was truly the greatest day of our lives.

In 2010, Emma was diagnosed with endometriosis after having consistent, around-the-clock, severe pelvic pain. It got worse by the day, and she went on to have multiple surgeries to try and remove the endometriosis and decrease the pain, but to no avail. The pain continued and became unbearable, affecting every aspect of her personal and professional life. In 2014, she was told that a full hysterectomy would rid me of the pain for good. This was the most difficult decision Emma has ever had to make. The thought of giving up her God-given ability to bear her own children was almost the most terrifying thing she could think of… second only to the thought of continuing her life in so much pain. Ultimately, she decided that she couldn’t take it any longer and went forward with the full hysterectomy surgery.

She began to heal from this surgery and for roughly a year after surgery, was pain free. Unfortunately, that didn’t last. When Emma began hormone replacement therapy, the endometriosis was triggered and flared up all over again. Since then, she has been dealing with continued pain which has required treatment from multiple doctors including another surgery, pain management, physical therapy, chronic pain counseling and a variety of others. Though it’s not as severe as it once was, Emma still deals with daily pain today. However, she has learned to cope in much healthier ways and has an amazing support system, which includes MANY of you who are reading this now. To all of you, thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.

Regardless of these struggles, we were never willing to give up our dreams of becoming parents. We knew there were other ways and we have always believed that adoption is exactly what we were meant for. Not only do we want to be parents, but we also feel extremely blessed that we may be able to give unconditional love and a joyful life to a child that might not otherwise have it. We want to bring a child into our wonderful, crazy family and share the many joyous experiences that we had as children as well as those we have now. We are excited to grow our family and take our child on all of our outings and adventures. We genuinely long to hold our child, to comfort them, to love them, play with them. We are also prepared for the challenges and for everything that comes with raising a child!

We cannot wait for this dream to become a reality, and it would absolutely not be possible without the love and support of our “tribe”. We appreciate all your kindness and generosity more than you will ever know. Thank you so much for taking the time to learn about our journey and become a part of it.
