“…whoever welcomes a child like this…. welcomes Me.”
A Letter from David & Natashia
Hi from toasty Texas!
We’re eager to be first time parents! We bought our first home earlier this year and have two dogs- both who absolutely love children. We’ve recently had some surprising and exciting news come our way – we’re currently pregnant and due in December. We are thrilled to have our kiddos be so close in age as we grew up together!
We are so eager to get to know you as we go through this journey together. We are excited to have an open adoption and are looking forward to exploring what that looks like with you as our little one grows!
We met through work, Dave interviewed Natashia, and we ended up working together for some time before taking our relationship to the next level. We have now been together for several adventurous years! After getting married, we have tried for several years to have children of our own but, after the loss of our son in delivery, we knew the time was right to start our adoption journey. Adoption has been on our hearts for a long time and we are excited to start this adventure now!
We love all sorts of activities together:
- traveling all over the world
- exploring new places (near and far)
- paddle boarding
- playing games
- campfire sitting
- attending concerts
- binging TV series
- eating delicious food
- family time with our siblings, nieces, and nephews
- going to farmers’ markets
We’ve always dreamed of having a big family, and love the little chaos that comes with it. We’re so excited to start new family routines and traditions and integrate your child into the activities we already love!
Natashia is a very kind and loving person. She has a big heart and makes everyone feel welcome, comfortable, and at home. She radiates positivity and loves to take care of others. She thinks she’s funny, but her humor could use some work. Her smile is contagious, and she often described herself as ‘a happy lil hippie who loves the sunshine and the water’.
- reading & journaling
- playing with her dogs
- yoga and running
- paddle boarding
- traveling to new places (locally and far away)
- farmers markets
Natashia was born to be a mom. It’s been her dream since she was a little girl. She will love unconditionally and cherish every moment with our little ones.
David is a very happy and independent soul. He’s got such a big heart with so much love to give. He’s always looking for a good laugh and plays with his nieces and nephews any chance he can get. He’s got the heart of a child – much like Peter Pan, he may never grow up! (in a good way!) He believes in always doing the right thing – no matter what. He is passionate and so full of life and always looking for a good adventure.
Dave’s hobbies and interests include:
- pizza connoisseur
- traveling all over the world
- sky diving
Dave loves exploration and adventure, and he is so excited to share adventures with our children. Dave LOVES playing, so I know playtime will be a special time for him to share with our kids.
We’ve got an incredible support system with family 5 min away, a great church community who’s always jumping in to help, and loads of friends and family lining up to come and help. They are all thrilled about our adoption, and our nieces and nephews are all excited to welcome their next cousin!
Dave’s parents are married, and he has three siblings who are all married with two kids of their own each.
Natashia’s family is a blended family. Both Natashia’s parents are remarried, and she has four younger siblings. Her sister is married with four children.
We’ve settled into central Texas to make our home sweet home!
We live in a newly built, 3 bedroom, ranch-style home in a suburb just outside of a major city. We love that our home has a very open floor plan. Our favorite part of the home is the joining spaces between our living room, kitchen, and dining spaces to make it easy to entertain, hang out and have lots of space to play!
We’ve got a big backyard for the kiddos to run around and play and a playground just down the street.
Our town has lots of kid-friendly activities to offer:
- splash pads
- kids learning centers
We promise to love your child as our own; in our eyes and our heart, there is no difference. Your child will be so unconditionally loved and fully supported to be who they were meant to be. We will actively teach, play and encourage exploration and curiosity in our little ones day to day life. We promise a healthy and happy home full of open communication, understanding, compassion, and logic.
After adoption, we’re excited to continue our relationship with you because you are so important! To us, it’s important for them to know we’re all a family, and they are loved by so many people. You are the key piece to this family puzzle, and would love you to be a part of our family as much as you’re comfortable with! We look forward to meeting you!

Dave is an adventure enthusiast is an understatement! He loves to try new things, take a little risk and really enjoy his life to the fullest (in the least cliche way possible). Dave is also a BIG pizza fan, and a close second runner up is tacos.
Natashia is a bit more tame when it comes to activities, but she really loves all outdoor adventures like hiking to places with incredible views, riding 4 wheelers, playing soccer, and playing in the water. She also loves coffee, going to farmers markets, and finding cute coffee shops and new restaurants.
One thing that you will learn quickly about us, is our love for tattoos! All of our tattoos have a special meaning, or a funny story behind them and if you ask, we'd love to share!
We are a non denominational Christian home. We're involved at an awesome church in our community that Dave has been apart of on and off since high school. Dave helps out with production, and Natashia is involved in youth ministry. Dave's brother is on staff there, and have gotten really tapped into this awesome community of people.
One fun thing to share is that we were recently baptized together in May of this year!
We believe we're a bit unconventional when it comes to family traditions. We've got a few that we've started over the years, and cannot wait for more traditions to happen!
1. We eat pizza on Thanksgiving
