Hello! We are Joe & Casey from Raleigh, NC!

First and foremost, thank you. Thank you for being brave through this process. Thank you for picking us up and giving us a closer look. We hope that learning more about us, our families, and our friends will help bring peace of mind when looking for your child’s forever family.

We look forward to offering both you and your child love and support. We are excited to get to know you better and grow our family!

Who We Are

We met through mutual friends in 2009, while attending North Carolina State University (Go Pack!). Within a week, we were dating. Within a month, we knew it would last forever. We are a young, easy going, active, energetic couple that love to try new things and do almost everything together. We truly are each other’s best friends.

In 2011, Joe surprised Casey with a “staycation.” We went to dinner, the symphony, and then to a hotel room lled with photos of all of our adventures together. As
if planned, Casey said “I could do this forever,” and
to his surprise, Joe pulled a ring out of his pocket and proposed. Casey said yes, and we got married in 2012 in front of friends in family in New York.

Adoption Diary

Taking our Niece to Marbles Kids Museum

Our niece, Avelina came to visit us recently. This gave us a good excuse to take her to all of the great activities Raleigh has available! Her favorite was Marbles Kids Museum. They had tons of rooms set up where kids could play and learn. She particularly like playing outside with the musical instruments. Uncle Casey showed her how to tap the bells to play a song. It was a great experience!

1st Week on Adoptimist

Last week was our first week on Adoptimist!

Joe and I have actually been in the adoption process a long time now. We joined an open adoption agency in May of 2015 called the Independent Adoption Center. We were excited to work with them, because they specialized in open adoptions, and were counselling based. That meant that some of our fees would go to providing potential birth mothers really good counselling services for free. Deciding to pursue adoption is a very large, important, and brave decision for any birth mother, so we liked the idea of her having access to these types of services.

Unfortunately, after being with the agency almost 21 months, IAC abruptly closed their doors and filed for bankruptcy. While that was a set-back for Joe and I, we are excited to keep the search going. We joined Adoptimist, and are already pleased with the activity and conversations it has started! We both think this will be a blessing in disguise.
