This is Jamie. It’s 1 degree outside! One single degree. But it’s beautiful out the window, and we’re staying warm inside doing the things that keep us sane through the winter. We’ve got a fire going, I baked some bread. We’re getting ready to go to a friend’s house for dinner and we’re bringing a spinach-in-yogurt side dish that’s from Julie Sahni’s cookbook and is classic Conniff cuisine. I thought a lot about going for a bike ride in the snow but I chickened out. I’m riding my fat tire bike in a race next weekend, and haven’t gotten a single solid ride in this season, so… we’ll see how that goes.

This is the first time we went fat biking, with friends in Wisconsin in 2019. It was just as fun as it looks.

Today we created our Facebook page! It’s exciting and makes us a little nervous to embark on this path so publicly. Both of us are private people and it doesn’t come naturally to share so much so widely. But then we imagine someone coming across that page and learning more about us and reaching out to talk about adoption, and we know it’s the right thing to do.

To old friends who are checking out this page for the first time: welcome! Don’t make too much fun of us if we come across as a little earnest. This is serious business! But you can make fun of us a little. If you do that, please also follow and share this page. Like our posts, comment, do whatever it is people do on Facebook and blogs these days. Keep us in mind if you hear of colleagues, friends, or family members who are pregnant and considering adoption. You may have heard or read about how challenging this process can be for everyone involved; your support can help. Message us here, or email us at, if you have questions or want to share ideas. Thanks for being here, we love you.
