Meet Our Village

... our loving, supportive friends and family. 


The Drapers

Aunt Paige & Uncle Scott,

Hannah, and Lindsay

The Drapers live about 25 minutes away from us here in Tucson, Arizona!

"Blake and Matt are two of the best people I know. They are genuine and loving people who care about those around them. Blake is my Uncle, whom I’ve known my whole life. There is never a dull moment with him. When he brought Matt into our lives, I knew they were meant to be. Adoption had been brought up numerous times in family conversation, and I never doubted for a second

that they would make great dads."


- Hannah Draper,

Cousin / Future Babysitter
