Believe it or not, the story of us all began with an online message. We met on a dating website, and after our first date for sushi, we knew we would end up together. We were engaged just a few months later, and eloped! Our marriage story is kind of unique, we were married in a jail! But, neither of us were in jail. We happened to have a friend who worked there, who was able to marry us. It was the most amazing day of our lives. Later that year, in the Fall, we had a church wedding surrounded by our family and friends. And the rest is history!
Together we have a little girl, her name is Amelia. She just turned three, and she makes our hearts happy. Amelia is full of life and spirit, and she reminds us what everything is truly all about!
Before Amelia was born, I worked as a social worker, and then I became a full time mom. And that is the greatest job I have had the privilege to have. I plan on being a stay at home mom for the foreseeable future, and truly raising our children.
Dan is a Division Sales Manager for a large national company. He loves his job, and he loves his family. His job allows him to be home for dinner and never miss a minute of our family time.
Family matters most to Dan and I. Family does and will, always come first. We pride ourselves in our relationship with each other, and our family. We take time each day to celebrate each other, and laugh. We take time to show each other we care, and we never leave the house without saying "I love you." The little things matter, and they often mean the most. We spend time with each other as often as possible. We know we will make mistakes, and not always do it right, but we always promise to learn and grow together.
We love to take trips together and Walt Disney World is one of our favorite places. We try and travel there each year and enjoy the magic! There is something about being there that truly captivates you and makes you feel like being a kid again. There is also nothing like seeing the joy on a child's face when they are there. It completely changes the experience. We love sharing that with Amelia and cannot wait to share that with a new addition.
Adoption has always been in my heart, ever since I was a child. When I shared with Dan my dream of adopting, he was completely on board with an open heart. We are so ready for this journey and so ready to envelope you and your child as our family.
Home is wherever we are together. We adore our home and our community. We live in a two-story, five bedroom home, in a tucked away cul-de-sac with a big backyard, complete with play set! Our home has a nursery and a playroom ready for more action! We have incredible neighbors who we consider family. Our community is full of young families where your child would grow up surrounded by friends and family! Our heart is here, this is home.
Dan is the most caring, loving, & funny person I know. He's devoted, selfless & can always make me laugh. He is a big kid at heart & isn't afraid to play, & be goofy! No matter what we do, or where we go, we always have a good time & laugh a lot! He loves with all that he has & is loyal to a fault. He is an INCREDIBLE daddy & always puts his family first! I cannot wait to see him share his love with another child.
Katy is a caring, loving, and nurturing mother and wife. She has such an incredible heart and is dedicated to making sure our family is always filled with happiness and love. Katy is an amazing mom and Amelia is flourishing because of her. There is nothing I love more than watching the two of them snuggling or playing and laughing together. Katy is so excited to be a mom again!
