Who We Are
We met through friends over seventeen years ago and there was an instant connection! Although we had both lived in Arizona for many years, we soon discovered we actually grew up only miles from one another in Indiana. We also realized that we had run in some of the same circles joking that we were probably roaming the local mall at the same time not realizing that our life partners were just a few feet away. Not surprisingly, we also had so much in common by ways of similar values, beliefs, and our outlooks on the world. Our friendship soon grew into a very loving relationship. We were married in 2010 in Washington DC while visiting family and friends on the East Coast.
Our son Sam joined our family on October 30, 2017 through an open adoption. He is a great kid; happy, healthy and 100% boy. He is developing an outgoing personality and loves everyone he meets. There is a smile on his face from the moment he wakes up in the morning until bedtime each night. Sam also enjoys socializing with other kids and will be a great big brother!
Our relatives are thrilled about having a new addition in the family. We also have a diverse group of friends that range from young families with kids to older and wiser “empty nesters” eager to give us parenting advice. They all look forward to family fun with us at the waterpark and hiking the desert mountain trails by our home.
