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, he was just another kid in one of my classes. We went on ONE date in high school, it was Prom. We were escorted around by one of his friend’s moms, NO LIMO! And, he didn’t even try to kiss me! We graduated high school in 2004 and remained friends. In 2005, Brett served a mission for our church in Mexico. This is when it really started clicking for me. We emailed a ton! And I fell completely and utterly in love with him. We dated for five months after he came home. He proposed on a cold and snowy Valentine’s Day. We were married three months later on May 28th, 2008 in Salt Lake City. We spent our honeymoon in Park City and still no limo! HaHa
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. We are lucky to have trans-racial family on both sides. If we are blessed enough to be placed with an African American baby, your baby will be exposed to African American culture, and we are excited to teach them about their 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 so your child’s hair will be well taken care of.
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 and often times, we get take-out and hide it from the kids. We also love doing things as a family, including spending time with our extended families, we see them each three to four times a month. We love spending time with our two biological children as well. Our daughter and Brett love to cuddle and watch movies together, they call each other "cuddle buddies". We also have a science channel on YouTube for kids where we do experiments with our son. The channel is called AusomeAidynTV.
