We are hoping to adopt a baby girl who is African-American.
We are lucky to have trans-racial family on both sides, so your baby will be exposed to African-American culture, and are excited to teach her about her heritage. Paige's cousin has taught her how to wash, and style African-American hair, as well as tips for hair products and skin care. We will love her to the ends of the Earth, and hope that this helps you feel some comfort in your decision.
We know that connection and communication are important for both the birth family, and the adoptive family. We would love to have an open adoption that is comfortable for both sides. We are willing to talk about texts/phone calls, video chats, emails, and letters.

One of my favorite wedding pictures. Another one of the best nights in my life.
We have a tradition every year to go see the play The Forgotten carols every year at Christmas Time. It is an amazing play we look forward to it every year.
Me on the night Brett proposed. He made me a delicious meal, then took me to a park where he asked me to marry him. One of the best nights of my life.
Who We Are
Brett and I met a long time ago in Junior High School. Brett would tell you that he was in love right away, but I never really thought of him that way. We went on ONE date in high school and he didn’t even try to kiss me! Eventually Brett left the country for a couple years to serve a mission for our church, this is when it really started clicking for me. We emailed a ton! And I fell completely in love with him. We were married shortly after he came home on May 28th, 2008.
While we were dating and getting to know one another we found out that we had an amazing and special thing in common, adoption, AND a family connection to the African-American community. Brett’s oldest sister was adopted and eventually married an African-American man, and my cousin is also adopted and is African-American. Since then it has always been in our plan to adopt a beautiful African-American girl.
Brett and I love to get out on dates as often as possible. We love to see movies and eat at our favorite restaurants. We love to watch Netflix together after the kids are in bed. We also love doing things as a family, including spending time with our extended families. We see them each 3 to 4 times a month. We love that our kids get to play with their cousins so much!
Brett and Paige went to an adoption seminar. We were able to listen to wonderful people who work in adoption. They gave us some great ideas and we learned so much! After we had to stop and get a yummy treat at The Cheesecake Factory. Paige loves almost anything with chocolate in it, and Brett loves peanut butter cheesecake.
