Thank you for taking this brave step to learn more about us. We wish you the best in your difficult journey and will always admire your courage and bravery in making this decision. Through this book, we hope you will see how much we love life, each other, our family and friends, and our sincere desire to share what we love and value with our future child. We both treasure our childhood memories spending time with our parents. We also share a passion for adventure, arts and sports. We can't wait to create new memories and traditions as parents.
Although we lived less than a mile from each other since 2006, we didn't meet until 2012 and started dating right after Memorial Day, 2013.
Chris is the one who initiated our first date where we sat at an outdoor cafe and talked for hours. We found out that we had a lot of things in common. After a few more dates over the summer, and after Chris made sure Frank loved baseball and the theatre, we officially became a couple over Labor Day weekend on a beach trip. Four years later we got married in Washington D.C. with our family, friends, and dog Freddie by our side.
We've known since the beginning, without a doubt, that we both wanted to be dads. With a shared passion for seeing the world, experiencing the arts, science and sports, we've never run out of things to do together and can't wait to share new experiences with our child.
