Robert and Amber

About Us

We have been happily married for over 7 years. We met in the fall of 2003 at college and married in 2005, almost two years to the day. Robert is a police officer with just over 5 years of experience in law enforcement. He graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Psychology degree in 2005 and enjoys woodworking and road biking in his spare time. Amber is a full time stay at home mom, who took time off of school to raise the kids. She enjoys crafting, exercising, and cooking in her free time. She is a voracious reader who loves to share her love of books with the kids and is a regular visitor to the library. We’re both love adventure and have had the opportunity to explore that love by snorkeling in the Bahamas, zip-lining through the Redwoods and kayaking in the La Jolla sea caves as well as participate in a number of other exciting activities. We are an active family who like to spend our weekends together. We often enjoy camping, biking, hiking, spending summer days at the beach or blueberry picking, spending winter days snuggled up and drinking hot chocolate or building snowmen, taking our dog Martin for walks, and playing in the park. We attend church regularly and are active members of the church with a strong faith in God.



Our Kids

Rylee and Kayla are both energetic little girls who live life to the fullest. They both love to draw, dance, sing, read and practice gymnastics. Rylee is warm hearted, social, works hard in school, and is a great big sister. Kayla is a sweet and happy little girl with an “old soul”.  She’s extremely curious about the world around her and loves to observe, explore and ask questions. They are both looking forward to adding a little brother or sister to the family.






Our Home

We live in a warm and loving home in Riverside, CA on a quiet street with lots of children. Our house is located close to shops, museums, libraries, and parks. We are very lucky to live in a wonderful close-knit neighborhood with lots of community activities, such as a soapbox derby and ice cream social, happening throughout the year.




Our Family and Friends

We’re both very blessed to have large extended families nearby with lots of aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins and friends to spare. It’s not unusual to find us spending most holidays, birthdays and just-because days with either of our families. Both sets of grandparents have large yards with gardens that are perfect for exploring. Our friends and family are incredibly supportive of our decision to adopt and are looking forward to welcoming our new little one.



Thank you,for taking the time to look over our profile. We hope that it helped in your decision and look forward learning more about you and sharing a relationship with you with whatever level of openness you feel is best for you.
