Where We Live

We live near Lake Merritt in Oakland, and it's a wonderful place! Our neighborhood is diverse and vibrant, and full of great things for children. We can walk to the lake, the local library, Saturday’s Farmer’s Market, and a huge playground. At home, we have created a sweet space to hang out, watch TV, cook, and do projects. We love animals and have two dogs, Cowboy and Chloe, and three cats! Simba is our senior cat at 14 years old, and we have two new kittens named Bhalu and Pippy. The dogs love to catch some sun rays on the back deck, and we often join them to read or hang out with friends. The cats are happy to play inside, chasing toy mice or just hanging out on our shoulders. We love to host barbeques, game nights, and any kind of celebration. We often hear how much people love our home, and we can’t wait to fill it with all of our child’s first experiences.

Our Story

We have been together more than 15 years, and while we have enjoyed working and getting educated, we’ve always dreamed of having a family. Jonna now works for the human resources team at a solar start-up, and she is happy to have flexibility to work from home or end the day early to spend time with family and friends. Dylan worked as a paramedic for several years and is now practicing massage and studying to become an acupuncturist. She is also looking forward to being a stay-at-home mom. Jonna loves to try new recipes, and Dylan is an avid gardener and loves growing vegetables we can eat! Vacations often take us to favorite places like Seattle, Hawaii and New York City. We love yoga, going to dance classes, and taking hikes with the dogs through the neighborhood. We can already envision adding a stroller or a sweet snuggle wrap to our walks and can’t wait to begin building memories with our child.

We Promise You...

Our Family and Friends

We are so lucky to have such a supportive community of friends and family. Jonna’s family is close by in the Bay Area, and Dylan’s family lives a few hours away near Grass Valley, California, a beautiful place we look forward to visiting with our child to see the horses and enjoy the fresh country air. Many of our friends are already parents, and we love getting to know their children. We are often overwhelmed by the excitement of our friends to welcome a child into our family, accepting handmade quilts, sweaters, and other thoughtful gifts to fill our waiting nursery. We learn so much from our friends as they raise their children, and know we will have constant opportunities for play dates and sleepovers. Our child will be surrounded by people who will cherish the opportunity to get to know all about his or her hopes, dreams, and favorite things.
