Trevor & Mallori

Education We Will Provide

Hiking Near Waterfalls in Kilarney, Ireland

We believe that education starts outside of school, in the home. We love to travel and are excited to take our child to exotic places around the world. We want them to not only understand their corner of the world, but to also experience different cultures, cuisines, and languages. One of our favorite things to do when we travel is to read fiction and non-fiction books about the place that we’re about to travel to. This gives us a lens through which to understand the culture and history of the cities we visit. We love the idea of finding age appropriate books and activities for a child to do before a trip so that they can be as excited and knowledgeable about the place we’re about to visit and we are!

We also want to introduce our child to lots of ideas and activities so that they can discover their own interests and passions. Having a chance to try new things and play is such a solid foundation for a child’s life and we want to embrace that.

Additionally, we want to give our child a strong academic education in the classroom. We were both so fortunate to have been given excellent educations by our parents. We took private art, music, dance and sports classes as children; went to private colleges for our undergraduate degrees; and finished out our educations with law school. We value education and we want our child to have the same advantages that we were given.

Our Leisure Time

We have an abundance of hobbies, some of which we pursue individually and some we share. Here’s our top 5 leisure activities:

Mallori Sewed Our Dog a Harry Potter Costume

  • Reading-We both enjoy reading, sitting together in our cozy home while drinking a cup of tea or hot chocolate. Ever since we discovered that we shared the same favorite book on our first date, reading has been a shared passion.
  • Running-Trevor has run competitively since he was a kid. He was a state champion runner in high school and has competed on our local Army Ten Miler team for the last two years. Mallori also enjoys running, participating in local 5ks and the occasional half marathon.
  • Outdoor activities-We enjoy hiking, canoeing, rollerblading, boating, snowboarding, and camping. As long as we’re outdoors, we’re having fun. One of the best things about being outside is bringing along our dog and seeing his joy as we play.
  • Crafting-Mallori is an artist at heart, filling our home with beautiful, functional creations. She is talented at sewing, using a pottery wheel, and painting, and enjoys discovering new crafts as well. She loves making Christmas stockings with Trevor, sewing dresses from fabric, or knitting baby blankets. We look forward to finding kid-friendly crafts to share with our child.
  • Being with friends and family-We enjoy spending time with friends and family and always strive to have a welcoming home. Much of our leisure time is quality time together spent talking, eating, laughing, and playing board games.
  • Cultural Diversity

    One of the things that we love about being part of the military community is the diversity. The military brings together people of all backgrounds, races, nationalities, cultures, and religions for a common cause. People from all over the country and all over the world unite to form the military family.

    We love that our neighborhood, our schools, our church, and our workplaces have a rich cultural mix. This allows us to learn from a wide variety of life experiences and build lasting friendships.

    We also travel extensively and intend to instill in our children a love of travel. Traveling will help them understand the rich cultural tapestry of people that exist in our world. Traveling will help them to both observe and appreciate diversity in the world.

    We want our children to understand diversity and how it affects everyone. We want them to understand how we all use our diverse talents and skills, our differences and similarities to make the world a better place.

    Our House and Neighborhood

    Our Home

    We live in a spacious, two-bedroom apartment. There is a playground right outside our front door and a fenced pool just around the corner at the clubhouse. We love our diverse and child-friendly neighborhood. We love that many kids and their families hang out together and make friends at the playground and pool.

    We value our family time and live close to not only our office but also live within walking distance of the neighborhood elementary school. There is a wooded greenway trail two miles away that we use frequently for running, walking, and rollerblading.

    Trevor's work will require us to move in Summer 2020 and we are already in a position to buy a house at that time. Our apartment was perfect for two young professionals and has plenty of space for a baby but as the child grows we want a larger home with a backyard to give him or her more chances to explore and grow.

    Our Extended Families

    Trevor & His Parents

    We have close relationships with our extended families. Both our parents have been happily married for almost 40 years and are so excited to be first time grandparents.

    Trevor grew up in Colorado where much of his extended family still lives. His parents retired to Hawaii recently. His sister also lives there. His parents own a beautiful five bedroom home on the Big Island and we love visiting them as often as possible. Prior to retirement, Trevor's mom worked a an elementary school teacher/principal and his dad was a movie reviewer. Trevor's sister works on a whale watching and dolphin swim boat and we love joining her on the boat and watching these beautiful animals. Trevor is also close to his extended family, particularly his cousin, who is like a sister to him and whose two young sons are our nephews.

    Mallori has a large extended family who live a few hours away and we love getting together with them for holidays and random family get togethers. Many of Mallori's 28 cousins have kids and it is so fun to spend time with them and to watch them grow up. We're excited to introduce a child to all of them. We also value more quiet family dinners with Mallori's parents and sister and we enjoy traveling with them. We're taking a family trip to explore Mammoth Cave this year, and recently Mallori and her sister took a trip to Universal Orlando.

    From Us to You

    We want to start out by thanking you for even reading our profile and for considering adoption for your child.

    We appreciate the time you are taking to research all the options for your child. While we cannot begin to imagine what you must be going through right now or your story, we do know first hand through two failed pregnancies that pregnancy can be stressful, exhausting, and emotionally draining. We think of our child’s mother frequently, whoever she may be, and it is always with admiration and love.

    We will make sure to tell our child that his or her birth mother was a strong, loving woman who made the best choice she felt she could make for her child. We will endeavor to raise our child to embody the same spirit of selflessness that brought him or her into this world and into our family.

    We want our child to feel loved by every person in their story. We love the idea of an open adoption where we send photos and updates and communicate via phone, email, and visits. Travelling regularly with the child is very important to us so that he or she can visit and connect with all of the people in his or her life. But we also understand and respect if you would prefer less or no contact. Either way, we will let this child know that you went through pregnancy and made a difficult decision to place him or her with our family because you loved him or her so much.

    We value the gift of adoption and are so excited to be parents. We have been married almost three years and have been together for five. This is an excellent time for us to add a child to our lives. With respect to finances, we have paid off all of our student loans and are glad to be debt-free with good jobs that allow us to maximize our time at home as a family. With respect to values, we live for the good of those around us and look forward to helping a child discover a rich life full of meaning and purpose. With respect to community, we have a strong, diverse set of relationships with friends and family who will surround our child with love. We are ready.

    We plan to give our child all that he or she could want out of life. We will love and care for him or her. We have ample means to provide for the child's every need. With our laid-back personalities, we believe that we will provide incredible stability in a child’s life. To add additional stability, Mallori intends on becoming a stay-at-home mom for at least a few years (possibly longer if that continues to be the best fit for our family). We plan to give our child all that he or she could want out of life, from love and stability to travel and education. And so much more.

    Thank you once again for reading our story!
