We are humbled that you would take the time to learn about us and the shared love we have for your baby. Your glimpse at our profile is a glimmer of hope that we may be blessed with the opportunity to provide your child with the most nurturing and caring life we can.
While we can’t know how difficult your decision to pursue adoption may be, we truly admire your strength and courage in considering this loving path. Please know that we cherish this opportunity and we will respect your wishes throughout the process. You would be giving us the most precious gift - a child to shower with love and affection.
We’ve been married for more than five years and we live in a historic city in sunny Georgia. We work for an art and design university. John is a sequential art professor (he teaches students how to be comic artists!) and Erin is a vice president, overseeing the university’s accreditation and quality assurance.
John grew up in Tennessee and was raised by a single mom who worked extremely hard to ensure that John accomplished his dreams. John has children from a previous marriage and he and Erin co-parent with their mom, who lives just down the street.
Erin grew up in Connecticut, but has called the South home since she was 16. She fully embraces “y’all” and “all y’all” as pronouns.
We love traveling and can’t wait to show your child the world. In just the last few years we visited Hong Kong, St. Thomas, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Jamaica, France, the Dominican Republic, and quite a bit of the United States.
The change from summer to autumn comes quickly in Savannah. One day we’re at the beach hiding under an umbrella and the next day we’re in sweaters enjoying the sunshine. Today was the annual Rock and Roll Marathon, so we avoided downtown and are spending the afternoon together with the pups, out in the backyard and peeking in on college football games. My alma mater (Univ. of North Carolina) isn’t doing so hot this year…but there’s always basketball season to look forward to!
John’s birthday is today (Halloween!) and his favorite part of the day is seeing the kids all dressed up. I loved making them homemade costumes, but they’ve all decided, since they’re all teenagers now, that they’re too old for trick-or-treating. This photo is from five years ago and just showed up on my Facebook memories.
Bete: rockstar mermaid (because who wouldn’t want to be both those things?!)
Jonah: Buzz Lightyear
Koji: Jason (he made his own costume that year and did a great job!)
I can’t wait to have a little one to join our Halloween-loving family.
