All About David & Emily

We are praying for the opportunity to serve a mother in need by loving her & her child. "Whoever embraces one of these children as I do embraces me, and far more than me-God who sent me.” Mark 9:37

My husband Dave is a Senior Vice President for a Software Company. He loves his job and sometimes gets to travel around the world to visit customers and tell them about the exciting projects we are developing. I work at the same software company in an HR role. We have both been with the company for 15+ years. Also, he is over a foot taller than me! 

Dave and I are both very generous, tender-hearted people. We take great care of each other and those we love. We always say we are a team, Team DEmC. We would love the opportunity to raise a child together and get to enjoy the experience of having a family. We are praying for this to come to fruition and for everyone involved to be cared for in the process. Thank you for considering us!

Why Adoption?

We want to love and raise a child together who is in need of a safe, happy, and peaceful home.

Dave has three beautiful grown children from his prior marriage, and is excited about the opportunity to be a parent again!  Dave has been an amazing father to his children and has always made them a priority. Thanks to Dave, all three of his children have college degrees and graduated without any debt. Emily also loves children and has been involved with children's programs at church and in her community for many years. She has always especially had a heart for foster children.

Now that we have begun the process to find a child who needs a loving home, we're excited to see how God will continue to guide our steps as we pursue adoption. 

Family & Home

We have a sweet golden retriever pup named Chloe who keeps us  very busy- we love to play with her and socialize her with dogs of our friends. Chloe loves the beach and we take her whenever we can! Dave loves to BBQ so he grills our dinner most nights, but we also enjoy eating Italian food, Sushi, and Mexican food. Emily speaks and understands quite a bit of Spanish. We're involved in our church where Emily helps with children's worship. We both work out almost every day. Dave loves watching all sports, and Emily tries her best to keep up!

We live in beautiful, sunny Santa Barbara, CA and we actually got married in our home! We are close to just about everything including work, the mountains, and the beach. We have a close circle of friends in our community who have children of all ages.
