Patient stay-at-home mom, culinary whiz dad, and a playful and hopeful sister cannot wait to welcome a little one!
Hello there! Our names are Erin and Joshua, and our beautiful little girl's name is Gabriella. We adopted Gabriella in November of 2017 and she has been such a blessing! We absolutely adore and love her and it has been such a joy being her parents. We are so looking forward to welcoming the next addition to our family through adoption. We love to play outdoors and go hiking and well as visiting zoos around the country and scuba diving. We are excited to try new things and meet new people and start planning new adventures as a family of four!
We are open to contact and currently keep an active google drive with pictures and updates of Gabriella for her birth mom to view whenever she wants, if she wants.
We met our freshman year at K-State in the fall of 2011. We quickly became friends and often found ourselves playing on the same team for games of ultimate frisbee. We had several classes together and grew closer as we determined we both had a love for swimming and the outdoors, animals and playing games, plus a lot more. Through the next two years, we worked together to get each other through school and our relationship grew strong. Some of our favorite memories are our adventures to different zoos, since we both love animals, and spending time getting to know each other. In the spring of 2014, we decided to go see one of the best zoo's we had heard of, the Henry Dorley Zoo in Omaha, Nebraska. The zoo was amazing but the most exciting part was when Joshua proposed in the butterfly dome. We were both thrilled that we were going to begin a new adventure with each other! And what an adventure it has been. We were married in December of 2014 shortly after Erin graduated. We then moved to Salina so Erin could begin her full time engineering position; while Joshua began his last school year commuting from Salina to Manhattan. It was a long year, but it was well worth it! The summer before Joshua graduated, he signed on at an electrical engineering firm in Salina and we bought our first home on 28 acres so we could raise a family and have tons of room for them to grow and play.
Sharing our hope for adoption with friends and family is so amazing to see how they help us spread the word of our hopes for another baby! Posted on facebook to some friends and family about our online profile for our adoption and felt so much love as our friends and family started sharing with everyone they know!
