Hi! We are Rick and Spur. We appreciate you taking the time to learn more about us and our story.
Our story began in March 2015 on the basketball court in a local gym. We were on the same team in a pick-up game, and found ourselves only passing the ball to each other from that day on. Our mutual love for basketball brought us together, but we soon realized that we connected in many other aspects of life. We quickly turned from teammates to best friends, and in September 2016 we were engaged. Not long after, we were married on top of a mountain in Park City, Utah in July 2017.
After spending the following years focused on our careers, dogs, and traveling, we feel ready to expand our family. Before marriage, we discussed our future plans to have a family and we both agreed that we wanted to adopt. It has always been in both of our hearts. We were inspired to adopt by several great people in our lives who, while growing up, treated us as their own. We hope to pass that same unconditional love and endless support on to a little one.
Our Extended Family
We are so blessed to have a great family that is full of love and laughter. Our large family consists of different backgrounds and cultures including Filipino, Hispanic and American and it is fun to eat different types of food and have a variety of traditions. We have the most supportive and loving family that is always there when we need them.
Our family is spread all over the United States but they all make an effort to visit frequently. And, having family members in different states and regions means we always have an exciting place to visit! We always have a blast kayaking and snowshoeing in Northern Idaho or taking the dogs to the riverside in Austin, Texas.
The grandparents love spoiling our dogs but they are definitely ready for a grandchild to give all their love to. They couldn't be more thrilled to see us expand our family and have already helped us with decorating the baby room. We imagine a little one will enjoy playing hide-n-seek with grandma, golfing with grandpa and eventually beating them both at card games.
We are so lucky to have a family that is always there for us and we cannot wait to share that with a future child.
We love the outdoors, sports, and traveling. We both play basketball, pickleball, and love to hike. We are big Utah Jazz fans and also root for the Chicago Bears.
Rick has a passion for saltwater aquariums and corals. When our nieces and nephews come over, they love to look at the aquarium and see all the different colorful corals. Rick is also a huge foodie and quite a cook. His homemade pozole is a family favorite.
Spur enjoys working out, horseback riding, and biking. Spur also loves to work in the yard and bake desserts; brownies are her specialty! She loves to stay active and get outside and would be the first to play in the dirt with the kids.
We love celebrating each holiday and even our dogs' birthdays. Each Christmas we drive around and see Christmas lights. We also have a tradition of buying each other a Christmas ornament that represents the year. We can’t wait to get a little one’s first ornament!
Every year in Illinois we have a family reunion and play Whirley Ball. There are always great family recipes and food that we look forward to. It is great fun for every age!
Our Promise to You
We cannot thank you enough for taking the time to look at our profile. We admire your strength and love for your baby. Thank you for considering adoption. We dream of having the opportunity to care for someone so precious.
If we are chosen as an adoptive family, we promise to treat your baby like the miracle they are and let them be themselves in this world. We promise we will love them unconditionally and teach them to be a good person. Our goal is to guide them and teach them life lessons to be successful and happy.
We will always be open and honest with them about their adoption story. We would like to work with you and your family's requests to give the baby the best possible situation.
We hope you find the best match for you and your baby. Words cannot express how much we admire your bravery and selflessness and we wish you all the best on your journey.
