We are Grace and Dan. We met on a tour bus in New Zealand & it's been an adventure ever since! Dan is British & Grace is American, so after getting married in St. Louis, we moved together to London where Dan lived and worked.
Our two daughters were born in the UK before we decided to put down roots back in Grace's hometown. Now we have a busy life both in St. Louis and with our British side overseas. As a family, we love traveling to new places, be it nearby or on the other side of the world! We also enjoy hiking, spending time with our big families & friends, and going to special events in and around St. Louis.
It's important to us that our kids experience the world around them and appreciate their background as both Europeans & Americans, and we are incredibly grateful to be able to provide that. In recent years, we have felt the call to adopt and share our lives with a 3rd child. We can't wait to meet our adopted child and have them join our crew of four!
Our Message To You
Thank you for including us in your search for an adoptive family for your child. We recognize that this process is an immense challenge and we are incredibly grateful that we can be a part of it, whatever your decision.
We know that being an adoptive family means so much more than providing love. Please know that our adopted child will always be encouraged to pursue their identity as an adoptee. They will always have a safety net that allows them to branch out. They will know that their experience as an adoptee can only improve and strengthen our family.
The four of us have so much love to give, and so much to gain from adopting your child. Please know that we are all committed to learning from and caring for your child through all of life's ups and downs.
