TARA AND AARON
Hello! we are Tara and Aaron, from santa cruz, california! we are so honored that you are taking the time to learn a little about us.
We love children and have both been teachers for 20 years. We are a married couple and we have been sharing outdoor adventures, laughter, and yummy food together for the last 15 years. We live in a welcoming neighborhood just five blocks from the beach, surrounded by friends and family.
We have so much respect for you on your journey. There are no words to properly express our excitement to begin an open adoption with you and share our love with a child. We look forward to going on hikes, playing music, and sitting on the beach as a family.

We both grew up with parents that were great role models of what it means to love unconditionally. We feel fortunate that we have been a part of our friends’ journey into parenthood, and have learned a lot about parenting from watching them. Our friends will be there for us when we have questions and we look forward to watching our children grow up together. As teachers, we continue to learn what it means to guide and nurture the next generation. We are excited to grow our family and pass on all that we have learned to our child. We know we will learn just as much from them as they will learn from us.
