A Letter from David & Mikayla
We are a fun-loving, active, easy-going couple who is excited to welcome our first child into our lives. We look forward to creating special memories with our child through going to sporting events, concerts, playing with our dogs, and just being together with family. We want to start by thanking you for spending time to look at our profile and for considering us as parents for your child. We hope this profile gives you an idea of who we are as a couple and who we will be as parents.
Since the moment we met, we have been laughing, loving, and growing together. We are each other’s best friend, biggest supporters, and truly treasure every moment together. We love to work out, watch/play sports, go to concerts and comedy shows, walk our dogs, and be surrounded by our family and friends. We enjoy quality time spent at home as well as outings with family and friends. We also love to take vacations and try new foods! We always have a blast entertaining and really enjoy hosting our family and friends for BBQs, game nights, and sports watching at our house. We are so excited to share our love of sports, music, games, and animals with your child. We look forward to teaching them, coaching them, and encouraging them in whatever passions they would like to pursue. We are thrilled to make new memories with our first child and are excited to support them in chasing their dreams.
David is the funniest person I know! He is my best friend, has the best sense of humor and makes everyone around him smile. David works counseling youth and is so caring, compassionate, kind, and creative. He loves sports and never passes up the opportunity to coach kids/young adults and share his passion with them. David looks forward to teaching and coaching your child and encouraging them in whatever passion they choose to pursue. He is excited to share his love of music with your child and travel to concerts to see live shows. David is patient, hard-working, gentle, laid back and will be an amazing dad! He is upbeat, athletic, and someone everyone can count on.
Mikayla is the most caring person I’ve ever met. She is dedicated, hardworking, trustworthy and passionate about everything she does. Her bubbly demeanor is contagious and she has the ability to make everyone around her smile. Mikayla is so passionate about her work as a teacher and embraces the challenges. Mikayla loves to run, spend time with her grandmother, coach tennis and soccer, bake, and be with our family. Mikayla looks forward to teaching your baby sign language, helping with school projects, reading bedtime stories, playing soccer in the backyard, and baking lots of yummy treats! Mikayla will be an unbelievable mother as she understands and exemplifies the importance of love, positivity, development, and patience.
We live in a 4 bedroom home in a smaller suburb area and are a close drive to the city, coast, and mountain. We have a grassy, fenced-in backyard and live walking distance from the elementary and middle school, which have a wonderful playground. Our neighborhood is very safe and is also filled with families with children. We love to take long walks with our dogs around our neighborhood or walk over to the school to watch baseball games.
We feel incredibly blessed to have loving, supportive, and fun families. Our families are outgoing, active, and down to earth. Both of our parents have been married for over 32 years and are so excited to welcome their first grandchild! Mikayla’s parents, brother, and his significant other live only 1 mile away. Many nights are spent on Mikayla’s family’s back deck playing games and BBQing. David’s parents live only a short drive away and we see them often as well to meet up for dinners, concerts, and sporting events. We all spend birthdays and holidays together which are full of laughter, memories, and fun!
We promise to love your child more than anything else in the world. We will encourage them, comfort them, and help them to dream big! We promise to put your child first and to always make sure they have the opportunity to learn, explore, and create. We promise to provide them with a safe, stable, loving, fun home to call their own. They will grow up knowing their story and promise to include you in as many aspects of your child’s life as possible.

|More About Our Family|
|Our Special Interests|
We love sports! We both grew up playing sports competitively and still love to play and watch sporting events together. David played baseball through college and even went and played professionally in Canada for a year. He coached high school baseball for three years before helping out at a local community college team for another three years. He is currently in his second season as a volunteer baseball coach at George Fox University.
Mikayla played soccer through college and coached our local high school girls soccer team.
Our parents are our biggest supporters. They are just as excited as us for this addition to the family. David is an only child. His father is retired, and his mother works for Nike. They too are avid gym-goers and sports enthusiasts. They enjoy spending their free time on their boat at their lake house in Washington. Mikayla has a younger brother working to become an electrician. Her mother is a real estate agent and her father is in sales. Much like us, they enjoy their free time being spent together at home with their dogs. Mikayla's mother loves to host social gatherings and her father is an artist when it comes to barbecue. One aspect we hold dear to us is that our parents love spending time with each other as well. Our family unit will undoubtedly provide the love and support a child needs and craves.
|Our Musical Interest|
Music is a big part of our lives! We have been to many concerts together and also enjoy going to shows with family and friends. We also crave music during our workouts, whether its hip hop or rock, music keeps us going in the gym! We often listen to reggae and acoustic genres for our more laid back times during the day. David enjoys finding new artists and songs for us to listen to. David has always been interested in music and played the guitar growing up. He still plays the ukulele and teaches himself new songs regularly.
|About Our Home and Neighborhood|
Our home in Oregon has 4 bedrooms and a nice fenced in backyard. We have plenty of space for hosting social gatherings with friends and family. We live one block from the local elementary and middle school. There is also a park and baseball field one block away from our home as well. We live one mile away from Mikayla's family's house and often will walk up to visit them, or they will come to our house. We love our home. We love spending quality time at our house with our two dogs. We enjoy taking them for walks around our neighborhood and playing fetch in the backyard.
We have an amazing friend group. Our friends are supportive, caring, and fun! We have a tight knit friend group that loves to get together for dinners, game nights, concerts, and holidays. Our friends are also excited to welcome a new addition to the group.
