Meet Heath and Nicole
Thanks for opening our profile page! We’re excited to tell you about us and our life in Arlington, VA. Maybe we’ll even get to meet some day…
Nicole grew up in Erie and still has a large portion of her family there. As a result, we visit Erie multiple times per year as it is. But we absolutely love living near DC and are excited to raise a child in the semi-urban, diverse and safe environment our neighborhood offers.
We have been blessed with several pregnancies over the years but all have ended in miscarriages. When the idea of adoption came up, we immediately felt a sense of relief and calmness that there’s another way for us to create a family – we truly feel adoption is part of God’s plan for us.
Summarizing life in a few sentences is tough, but we’ll give it a try: We’ve spent our time pre-kids working, traveling and volunteering with several groups and initiatives in DC. Our biggest focus is to contribute to efforts that connect people of various backgrounds, as we feel the root of most problems is a lack of compassion and understanding for each other. We intend to continue these efforts even as parents, ensuring that any children we have receive the benefit of experiencing other cultures and helping others.
Most importantly, know that we feel an immense amount of respect for you for taking the time to even consider adoption. Sending much love and wishes of health, comfort and support your way!
