Hello! We are Richard, Matt & Xander. First and foremost, thanks from sunny San Diego, California. We are so grateful you are taking the time to learn about us! We are excited that you have chosen to learn more about who we are and help us grow our family through adoption again.
We were blessed when our son Xander came into our lives through adoption and are grateful for those who consider adoption as it will give us the opportunity to welcome another child into our lives. We sincerely admire your kindness, your courage, and your selflessness for considering adoption for your child. We look forward to learning more about you and developing a healthy relationship for the benefit of your child.
We have been married for eight years - together for thirteen. We have grown so much together in a loving, supportive relationship and have always known we wanted to be a family of four. Adoption has been the ultimate gift and we cherish our time as a family. We have an amazing network of friends and family and as you learn more about us, we hope you can see our adventurous, loving, kind, and open spirits, and how excited we are to grow our family!
We met online in the spring of 2009 and our first date was a picnic on the beach that Richard prepared. It didn’t take us long to realize that we each found someone to spend the rest of our lives with. We quickly became best friends through bonding over our many shared interests such as cooking, going to the beach, and traveling.
After six months of dating, we knew we wanted to get married and have a family. Four years later when same sex marriage was legalized, we committed to a lifetime of happiness in front of family and friends. Our wedding was reflective of both of our personalities: casual, fun, and filled with laughter and joy.
