Hello! We are Ben and Sarah-Ashley.
We are so grateful you are choosing to learn more about us in consideration of parenting your beloved baby!
If you choose us, we will provide your child with unconditional love, adventure and encouragement. We recognize the selfless love and strength of your decision to pursue adoption. We cannot wait to be parents and would feel honored to give the world to your little one! We will raise your child with respect for their adoption, celebrate their birth culture and tell your child as much about you and their birth family as you feel comfortable. We want your child to know how much they are loved. We have a large support network of extended family and friends that are already so excited to help us welcome a child into our family.
We met during our sophomore year of college at Florida State University on a blind date! We have now been together for 13 years and married for 8 years! We love spending time together and our relationship has continued to grow despite many obstacles thrown our way. We love doing outdoor activities like skiing/snowboarding,hiking,taking our pups on long walks, spending time with friends and family. Living in Colorado has been an adventure and we can’t wait to share this with our future child. Sarah-Ashley loves to read, crochet, bake, practice yoga and learn new things. Sarah-Ashley is a family physician and is trained to take care of newborns to elderly patients. Ben loves to watch sports (especially soccer!), cook, golf, play basketball and collect sneakers. Ben works in the IT industry and has been with the same company for over 10 years! We do not have any children but are so excited to start a family of our own!

Our Home and Family
We feel so fortunate to be homeowners in Denver, CO and love spending time in our home.
It is warm, open and has plenty of room to accommodate a growing family! We live in a safe neighborhood that we walk often. We have lots of friends in our neighborhood, many of which have young children. While we don’t live in Florida anymore, all of our family/extended family still lives there! Sarah-Ashley’s parents live in Jacksonville, FL and Ben’s parents live in Niceville, FL. We have a family tradition that brings us to Monticello, FL every thanksgiving to be with all of our extended family at Sarah-Ashley’s family farm. We make multiple trips to Florida a year and would be flexible with visits with our child’s birth family depending on their preferences. We are so lucky to have friends and family all over the country that are supporting our adoptive journey and can’t wait to meet the child we were meant to parent! We have two dogs named Shenzi (age 10) and Stryder (age 13) who are very calm and have had experience being around babies and young children. They can’t wait for a little one to join us on our neighborhood walks!
