Love, family, passion, fun, and appreciation of differences are the foundation of who we are.
We met seven years ago while living in two different states. Many bus rides and long weekends later, we got married on a riverboat surrounded by our friends and family.
We hope you will see, through our photos, that family has always been a huge part of our lives. Half of our family lives in Costa Rica, where JP is from, and we visit them at least once a year. The other half lives in the Twin Cities, and we see them usually several times a week.
We are very excited to build our own own family through adoption.
ABOUT JP (by Brent)
JP is the hardest worker I’ve ever met — he’s devoted, loving, respectful, very intelligent, and always stands up for what he believes in. I admire him for all he has done as an immigrant, accomplishing everything on his own. With that hard work, he’s gained great success as a PhD scientist and researcher working at a local university. He likes working out and is very health conscious. JP is most often the life of a party. Everyone who sees him with kids says how wonderful he is with them and how he’s going to be an amazing dad. I’m proud to be JP’s husband and very excited to parent alongside him.
ABOUT BRENT (by JP)
Brent is a loving person who genuinely cares about everyone in his life. He is known for his sense of humor and passion. I admire his artistic talent, his vision, and his creativity. He achieves everything he sets his mind to and has accomplished great things as a photographer, artist, and activist. Brent sometimes donates his skill and talent to organizations and causes he believes in. He is going to be an amazing father. He loves kids, is very patient, and has a calming, effective way of communicating with them. I’m excited for this next chapter of our lives.
