BERKELEY + GRACE
Thank you so much for taking the time to learn a little about our family. We have the utmost respect for you and know that considering an adoption plan for your child is probably one of the most difficult decisions you could ever make. We are inspired by you and will be here to support and encourage you along the way!
We are Berkeley and Grace and we live in Jackson Hole. We have been married for five years and we have always known we wanted to adopt. We have many close friends and family members who were adopted, and their stories have inspired us to adopt. Our biological daughter, Robin, turned two this spring and she continues to give us lots of experience with parenting. She is so excited to become a big sister and we cannot wait to welcome another child into our family.
Our goal as parents is for our children to always know that they are wholeheartedly loved and valued. We plan to show our children the world and teach them to be confident and capable as they grow and explore. We will raise our children surrounded by the love and support of our extended families and our amazing community here in Wyoming. We have already started saving for our kids’ educations so they can graduate from college or trade school without debt should they choose to go.
We love traveling, outdoor activities such as skiing and hiking, and spending time with our friends and family. Since Robin was born we have taken her to Hawaii, London, Washington DC, and many other states around the country. We have an Airstream trailer and we love spending weekends camping in national parks or taking road trips to visit our families in California. We both grew up in Christian homes and our faith is a big part of our lives. We’ve made amazing friends at our church in Jackson and spend most weekends floating the river, camping, or just having meals together with our friends.
Our traditions include outings to our favorite coffee shops a few mornings each week, dinner at Berkeley’s grandma’s house every Wednesday night, and chopping down our own tree at Christmas time. Berkeley’s grandmother, aunt and uncle live just a few minutes away and we are so grateful to get to spend time with them every week. We live in a great part of Jackson about 10 minutes from town. We have enough land for our kids to run around and explore, and we hope to one day raise animals. We have three bedrooms and a guest house to welcome our steady stream of visitors. The nursery is ready for whenever a baby joins our family!
I (Grace) own a media company along with one of my best friends from high school. I have a lot of flexibility in my schedule which allows me to spend tons of time with Robin every day. Berkeley is a stay at home dad and his days include bike rides to the park, trips to the library, and following Robin around as she discovers the world. His greatest accomplishments have been teaching Robin and watching her grow in her abilities and confidence. The chance to share those same life events with our future children is so exciting.
Thank you for making it this far! We hope you were able to get a glimpse into our family and can see the love we have for each other, for our family and friends, and for God. We know He has a plan for you and your child!
If you choose us, you will always be an incredibly important part of our family. If you do not, we are equally inspired by you and are praying that God will protect you and your child as you continue this journey.
We hope to meet you soon
With love and gratitude,
Berkeley, Grace & Robin
