" John and Saskia will be such wonderful, loving parents. It is so beautiful to watch them share and explore the world with our children every time we visit, I can’t wait to see what they’ll do with their own family someday. Saskia always does something thoughtful with the kids to make them feel special like taking them out to her garden and showing them how all of the vegetables grow, or teaching them how to make spaghetti from scratch, or just reading and snuggling together. John likes to take the kids for hikes in the woods, letting them stop and discover new bugs or flowers as often as they want and telling them stories along the way. My son’s favorite part is the piggy back rides since he can enjoy the scenery while hugging his uncle at the same time. Both John and Saskia just do a great job of putting the kids at ease, sharing new things with them, letting them explore, and making them feel loved, special, and safe. When you walk into John and Saskia’s house you just immediately feel warm and happy. It’s always full of family and friends dropping by or getting together for a meal, and it always smells amazing since Saskia is a fantastic cook. They are usually doing something fun like going for a walk in the beautiful mountains behind their home or playing with their dog. The walls are covered with happy pictures of loved ones and treasures from their adventures together all over the world. You just walk into their home and are surrounded by their love for each other and for the wonderful people in their lives. John and Saskia have been deeply in love since before I can remember. They have supported each other unwaveringly through career changes, moving cities, and planning for the future. They make a great team and whenever they have setbacks, they lean on each other and come out stronger, together. They take care of each other, and each other’s families, with warmth and kindness. They love to dream together and are always working on something that brings them closer together like building a garden for Saskia’s vegetables or renovating a bathroom by hand. Thank you for reading their story, I hope you are as glad as I am that your paths have crossed. "
