A Letter from Justin & Becca
We are grateful to be considered as adoptive parents for your child. Together, we love to be outside, travel (anywhere!), eat good food, hike, visit the beach or lake, and spend time with our family, friends, and animals. After 15 years of marriage, we are the best of friends and enjoy doing everything together.
We both believe our story has been leading to adoption all along, and that God has called us to welcome a child into our hearts and home through adoption. We’d welcome the chance to get to know you, and the hopes you have for your baby.
We met in college, when one day Justin started talking to Becca at work, and she dumped ice tea all over his lap. The rest, as they say, has been a wonderful, and humorous history! Through everything, our marriage and faith are stronger than ever. We have always felt a strong call to adoption, and after a few years of infertility, we are excited and hopeful about becoming parents through adoption.
Together we love to laugh and stay active, whether it’s working together, weight lifting, or exploring locally or through travel. It’s our hope to pass along our love for life as parents!
Justin has taught me strength, compassion, generosity and, above all, faith. He loves to work on cars, boats…really anything with an engine. He is quite the foodie and enjoys traveling and singing. He likes anything to do with being outside, including fixing up the property or my horse arena.
He makes friends wherever we go! Justin is a total clown and nothing makes him happier than to make people laugh (especially our niece and nephews!). As a dad, I know he’ll pass along his gift of joy; I can’t wait to see his eyes light up the first time he makes our child laugh. Even though he’s light-hearted and funny, Justin’s also the one everyone in the family comes to for advice. He is grounded and supports me in everything. He will be an amazing father!
I am so grateful for having Becca in my life! In our years together, she has taught me patience, kindness, compassion, and love in ways that I had never seen before.
Becca is a top 10 finalist for competitive horseback riding. She loves history and art, to bake and cook, read mystery novels, lift weights, and sing anything from folk music to opera.
In everything Becca does, from riding her horse, to singing with our god-children, she has a peaceful gentleness about her that puts friends, family, and even animals, at ease. Her goodness and tranquility make me a better man. I will be so happy to see Becca as a mother. I cannot wait to raise a family with her.
We love to travel with our families and have gone on memorable trips with all of them. Much of Justin’s Italian family lives just up the road, which means we enjoy many dinners together on the back porch, visits to the farmer’s market, and motorcycle rides through the country. Justin’s brother and his wife run their own Native American Trade Post, like us, out in Arizona. We enjoy visits with them, and our niece and nephew, as often as possible. Becca’s parents live a couple hours away; we see them regularly, for horse shows and holidays. Becca also has a sister in Washington, and we see her, and her family, at least once a year. Everyone is excited about our plans to adopt and are excited to welcome a new child to the family!
We live in the country on 7 fenced acres. We have a green house for gardening, a separate garage, and a horse barn. Our store is also on our property, and we love working close to home.
We live close to the mountains with hiking paths, riding trails, and many historical sites. Our diverse community also has several great schools. We have three dogs, two cats, and three horses. Our pets are great with children, and our older horse, Shiver, especially enjoys when kids ride him around our property. Our animals are a special part of our lives and make great companions.
The Family Business: We own and run a Native American Gallery and Trading Post, which has been handed down for three generations in Justin’s family. We sell jewelry, pottery, and more, all around the world, to businesses and collectors of Native American arts and crafts.
One of the reasons we chose to continue the family business was for our future family. Since our business is operated on the same property as our home, we will have no need for daycare. One of us will be with the baby at all times! Justin has great memories growing up in his parents’ store and we hope to create the same sweet childhood for any child we adopt.
We promise to love your child with our whole hearts, and to raise him or her in a home full of laughter, culture, and all of our support. We promise to nurture his or her passions, and share values of our Christian faith.
We would love to know your desires and wishes for contact during and after the adoption too. If you’re comfortable, we would be happy to share updates, and even future visits. We want our child to grow up knowing how we came together because of you, and to be proud of who we became a family through adoption.

|More About Our Family|
|Our Special Interests|
Justin enjoys working on cars and motorcycles. He also enjoys exercising whenever he gets a chance, as it helps him clear his head and think.
Becca also enjoys working out, creating art, and has been into horseback riding for most of her life. She even rides competitively!
Justin was raised in a Catholic family, so the belief system and daily activities were a big part of his childhood. Becca converted to Catholicism about 4 years ago, and we plan to bring the child up with these beliefs and traditions as well.
We have a trading post where we sell Native American jewelry and art, and items from our business can be found at national parks! Justin's family started out as turquoise miners, and we find it fun and exciting to see all the creativity that comes through our trading post every day.
|About Our Home in New Mexico|
We live in a 3 bedroom home on 7 acres of land. There's a fence all the way around the yard, so our dogs can be out and about whenever they want. Our home is in the high desert, so we have cacti and pine trees, which makes for beautiful scenery. We have a covered porch with a lovely greenhouse attached to it, and we enjoy sitting out there during the summer months.
We have three dogs, two cats, and three horses. Our pets are great with children, and our older horse, Shiver, especially enjoys when kids ride him around our property. Our animals are a special part of our lives and make great companions.
