To Someone Special,

Thanks for taking a chance and learning a little about our family. Making an adoption plan takes a great deal of courage and concern for your child. We hope you will be a part of our family's story!

Our goal is to love and support your child, make sure he or she receives the best education possible, and to provide opportunities to develop his / her own interests and talents. We want all our children to enjoy a sense of security and become a well-rounded individual. Our home is filled with fun, laughter, a sense of family and most importantly, unconditional love.

You will always hold a special place in our hearts and lives!

We know that when choosing an adoption plan for your baby, it is based on the love and concern that you have for your child. Your strength and love will forever be included as part of our Adoption Story. Each adoption is different and the goal is to find a comfortable situation for everyone involved.

We look forward to hearing from you and getting to know each other better.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us!

Who We Are

We have been happily married for 16 years. When we began dating we realized that we had actually met years earlier! We’ve looked back through pictures and now can recognize each other in the same Scout group for preschoolers. We reconnected through our church youth groups in High School, attended the same college and fell in love!

We have fun challenging each other’s wit at a game of Scrabble or card games, like Rummy or Pinochle. We’ll play Ping Pong in our basement or head outside to enjoy riding our bicycles. Taking in a great movie or going to see live theater makes a great date night! In the good weather months, you will find us outside in our vegetable garden or adding new plants to the flower beds. We also enjoy cooking and baking – whether it’s something new or a traditional family recipe. Together we have a fantastic time entertaining our family and friends.

We're always thinking of where our next vacation might take us! Spending time in Canada with Steve’s family at the beach every summer is something we all look forward to. Traveling with Megan’s family to Disney World and Myrtle Beach has created amazing memories we won’t soon forget. Together we’ve visited many cities. We look forward to sharing our favorite places with our kids, and exploring some new spots together as a family!

Our Adopted Sons, Aiden & Jackson
We were blessed in August 2010 to have been chosen as adoptive parents by Aiden’s biological mom. Every day we see how lucky we are to be Aiden’s parents. He’s a happy boy who loves to laugh and smile. Aiden is a GREAT big brother! He is gentle and sweet and loves cuddling with Jack. Aiden is a really great helper too!
We were blessed again in March 2013 to have been chosen as an adoptive family by Jackson's biological mom. He is such a bubbly little guy! His smiles light up any room he's in. You can see how happy he is when he plays with and learns from his big brother. We know Jackson will make a GREAT big brother, too!
Growing up healthy and strong, surrounded by love and family, and being able to experience all that life has to offer are our wishes for all our children.

Each adoption is different and the goal should be to find a comfortable situation. We have semi-open adoptions with both boys biological moms. What does that mean? It leaves her room to become the young woman she wants to be, and it has made our dream of being a family come true. Our lives are positively connected! We have relied on them to guide us as to how much contact is comfortable. And whenever we tell Aiden or Jackson's Adoption Story, it is clear how much their biological moms love and are concerned for them!

Our Family Traditions
We value carrying on our family’s traditions, as well as beginning new ones of our own. Our favorite holiday is Christmas! As a child, Megan always looked forward to cookie baking with her mother and grandmother. We still gather every year to bake our Christmas cookies together, usually at our house. Steve likes helping in the kitchen and taking pictures of the boys and their cousins as they cover themselves in flour! Christmas Eve is spent with Steve’s family. Christmas morning, after seeing what Santa has brought for us at home, we have brunch with Megan’s parents, sister, brother-in-law and their daughters.

We feel lucky to share time with both of our families on holidays. Having most of our family close by is such a blessing! Steve’s parents host Thanksgiving with all of his aunts, uncles, and cousins early in the day. Megan’s family party is usually closer to dinner time, so we have plenty of time to travel and see both families. The same can be said for Easter – we see Steve’s family for brunch and Megan’s for dinner.

In season, we like to pick fresh berries. Strawberries, raspberries and blueberries can be made into the sweetest jams! In the fall, we like to go apple picking. We easily pick a bushel of apples which we bring home to make into fresh pies. We also make apple sauce and apple butter. Making and canning tomato sauce is another of our favorite fall activities. What a treat to have homemade goodies ready to be eaten later in the season!

Our Faith
Our Roman Catholic faith is important to both of us. We regularly attend Mass together as a family, and have been known to serve as needed during the Mass.

We have friends of all different faiths and we have benefited from learning more about the similarities and differences in traditions and cultures. It is important to us to have a strong connection to faith through shared values and morals, and not judge others who have differing beliefs.

Adoption Diary

Cub Scouts

We recently celebrated another cross-over ceremony with our Cub Scouts! Both boys have loved their experiences with Daddy and the other guys in our Pack this year.  Aiden moved up to become a Webelo and Jackson moved from a Lion into the Tiger Den. Both boys earned many belt loops and are anxiously awaiting Cub Scout Camp at the end of the month! I love all the things they are learning and the bonds that they’re creating with each other, with Daddy, with the other Scouts and their families too.  We enjoy spending time outside together and our Scouting program reinforces that. The smiles we see when we set up the tent or ask the boys to help get our gear out of the shed are genuine and better than anything! Maybe someday soon we will be packing for a family of 5 trip!

Family Fun

Wow! Time is flying!  We are enjoying the beginning of summer here in WNY finally.  We are staying up until the bonfire dies down and sleeping in thanks to not setting the alarm clocks!

We recently added a puppy to the mix! Finley is a mini Sheepadoodle. I had never heard of the breed until recently… he is so sweet and loves the craziness of family life.  He doesn’t shed at all and is considered “hypoallergenic” which makes him perfect for us!
