Hello, Thank for taking the time to read a little bit about us, our names are Colleen, Larry & Will. Larry and Colleen met during college and married soon after in 1996. When we first met we bonded over our love of music and developed a strong friendship and respect that is the basis of our relationship. We joke, laugh and enjoy each other’s company. Moving to Colorado was a dream come true and we think it is one of the prettiest places on earth. We both come from big midwestern families who are excited to welcome another family member.
We’re Denise and Darren, thanks for taking a moment to learn more about us.
We are so excited to start our family and have a lot of love to give a child.
We’ve been happily married since 2005 and live in a charming older neighborhood in Denver. We adore our two dogs and they are gentle and patient with children. Both of us currently work in marketing although Denise plans to be a full-time mom once we have a baby. Our child’s days will be filled with lots of encouragement, learning, and adventures.
We wanted to include a photo of not just our immediate family, but part of our extended family as well. That's us on the left - we are David and Joelle, and the little guy is our son Johnnie. Those are David's folks, and they are such an important part of our lives, and have been wonderful grandparents to our son.
We are all looking forward to expanding our family, and Johnnie keeps telling us how excited he is to be a big brother someday. We also wanted to express our gratitude that you (the birthparent) might consider us - we know that this is not easy for you...finding a family (the right family) - and to raise your child to be a happy, successful and caring person.
Hi there! We are George and Debby! We live our lives by the three F’s: Faith, Family, & Fun!! As this is our 2nd adoption, we know how difficult this decision can be. Please know that our child’s birthmother will hold the most cherished spot in our hearts & we will be as open or as closed as you’d like to be.
We live in a wonderful community and are extremely close to our family and friends. We were able to work out our schedules so that when our daughter isn’t in pre-school, one of us is always home with her. We cherish our time together and cannot wait for our family to grow!
Hi. We’re Jen and Joel. We understand this is likely a difficult time for you and we appreciate you reading more about us as you make the decision if we might be the right family for you.
We’ve been a couple for 13 years and have been married for 9 years. We have a very loving, strong and open relationship that is based upon friendship and respect. Our family includes our two year old daughter, Nora, who we adopted as an infant through Adoption Options and our seven year old dog, Bentley.
Hello, I'm Rich and this is my wife, Erin. Eight years ago we realized the “normal” way of building a family wouldn't work for us. We came to Adoption Options and they helped our son Morgan and his birth-mother find us. Three years later we realized that we were pretty okay at the parenting thing (Morgan hadn't eaten any sharp objects and was astoundingly good at everything – for which we jokingly take complete credit) and came again to Adoption Options. They helped to connect us with our second birth-family and our daughter, Quinn. She is truly blossoming, loudly and with style.
Now we're back for more because, frankly, we feel there is another child out there that will fit in our busy, goofy, wonderful family. They need us and we need them.
Hello from Ron and Amanda! We’re so happy you decided to read a little of our story. We met one another through mutual friends, enjoyed one another’s company and married in 2009. Our happily ever after just doesn’t seem complete and we have been trying to add to “us” for some time. We’ve been working on building our family since we said “I do”. Unsuccessful attempts with reproduction specialists have turned us toward adoption.
The strength and love it takes to offer your child to prospective adoptive parents is to be commended. We admire and appreciate your courage and decision to make such an amazing sacrifice. Trust that we will love and cherish the gift of your child for the rest of our lives.
Hi, we are Matt and Emily. Thank you for taking time to learn about us. We are excited about adopting, and for bringing a child into our lives. We understand that this is a difficult process, but we admire your courage for considering adoption.
We met online in 2006, and bonded over our shared love for music. Both of us had been in local rock bands, and our relationship grew from there. We were married in 2008, and now, 4 years later, we are more in love with each other every day. Although we discovered that we are unable to build a family through traditional means, we know that adoption is the right choice for us, and can’t wait to share our love and our lives with a child.
Hi, we are Chris, Sue and Maddie and hope you will spend a minute to listen to who we are. Right now, you must have many conflicting emotions to deal with and we hope our story brings a smile to your face.
I met Sue in 1999 and learned that love at first sight was real. We have been together ever since, enjoying a fantastic journey together that saw us get married and move from England to America to make a home in Colorado. Along the way our family first grew with dogs, with Oscar (our first born) the Staffordshire Bull Terrier joining us for the plane ride and then Baxter (a clumsy food-loving hound) who was a rescue pup.
Welcome to a little peak into our lives. Our names are Manuel (“Manny”) and Johanna. We know that the possibility of finding a family for your child must be an overwhelming process. Knowing this, we are happy to share a few things to help you get to know a bit about us. Thank you for spending some time to read our story.
Manny and I both have been blessed with strong and supportive families and friends. Being Denver Natives, and Latinos, we are surrounded with Aunts, Uncles (tias and tios) cousins (primos and primas) and friends who are like family. That is what is central to our lives – familia! What that means is lots of family dinners, birthday parties, weddings and just fun get-togethers. Sometimes that includes trips to the mountains or road trips to New Mexico – but almost always includes family. We are surrounded with nieces and nephews and godchildren (hijados) but have not been able to have children of our own. Once we realized this, it was easy to decide to adopt because we would love to be parents and share this wonderful family we have.
Hi, our names are Jeremiah and Jennifer. We look forward to meeting someone who wants to experience the journey of adoption with us. We know the road can be complicated and you have a big decision to make. We appreciate the time you take to get to know us as adoptive parents.
Our relationship is built on a strong foundation. We have been friends for more than half of our lives, and continue to grow as a couple in a caring, loving relationship. We met in college, where we quickly became part of a large group of friends. We remained friends throughout college, but it wasn’t until after graduation that we started dating. Between graduate school, starting careers, and moving to take advantage of unique opportunities, we finally reconnected in 2005 when we found ourselves living in the same city (Austin, TX) at the same time. In 2009, we married, and shortly afterward, we moved from Austin to Colorado to start the next chapter of our lives together.

We have been friends for over 15 years, a couple for 7 years, and married for 4. We have a loving and strong relationship, based on friendship, respect, trust and laughter. We have always wanted children, and are so excited for a child to join our family. Our current household family includes our cats, Princess and Tabatha, and beloved bulldog, Betty.

Hello, we are Cas and Nik. We really appreciate you taking the time to read this during such a hectic time in your lives. We greatly admire your strength in making this decision and hope that we can become a part of your story.We have been together for 6 years and married for 2. We are best friends and have a very strong relationship. We love being outside even if that means just going for a walk with our dogs. We have 2 dogs and 2 cats that are our children for right now but we are looking forward to adding to our family. We have tried to get pregnant for over 2 years now with no luck and have decided that adoption is a great way to fulfill our dream of having a family. We are so excited about welcoming a child to our family and have already started collecting things for the nursery.
Our happy family would welcome your child with joy and love.
As an adopted child herself, Michele’s own wonderful childhood coupled with what we have learned from raising our one-year-old daughter have helped us to define what being a family is and what building a family looks like.
We believe the best environment for a child is a warm home full of good food, laughter and love. We believe that children thrive when they are helped to grow into the people they were meant to be with patient guidance. And we believe that being good parents is one of the most important things we will ever do.
HI! We’re Tom & Beth. Thanks for taking the time to read a little bit about us and for considering us as adoptive parents for your child. We know that this is a difficult decision and we greatly admire your strength and courage.
We have been married for 12 years and had been working on starting a family for 5 of those years when we realized that adoption was the right way for us to fulfill our dreams of becoming parents. We are very excited about bringing a child into our lives.
