Who We Are

Alex joined our family through adoption in 2011! Getting the phone call when he was born changed our lives in so many ways. There have been many more smiles, and so much laughter in our house since that day. Making people laugh and being silly is what Alex enjoys best, quickly taking after his daddy. He has brought immeasurable joy to our lives, far beyond anything that we could have ever imagined. It has been so incredible enjoying life's adventures and learning new things through the eyes of a child.

Alex is a very sweet boy and very caring about others. He notices when classmates and friends are sick and asks about it. If someone gets hurt, he is very sensitive to their discomfort.

When Alex started school, he quickly made many friends and grew to love playing with everyone. Now, he gravitates toward shy kids, wanting to help them make friends and have fun.

Alex is very inquisitive. He sees things and asks lots of questions. He is also fascinated with how to say things in different languages. Each night we "Ask Google" questions. His brain is a sponge, learning things quickly and gaining as much information as he can. He cannot wait to share that knowledge with a sibling.

Alex loves teaching his cousins things he has learned. Some of the cousins are younger and Alex is very good with them and very eager to help out. They all play very well together!

Lately, there has been a lot of discussion about if he can have a sibling. It is not a secret that Alex is adopted. He knows mommy could not grow a baby in her belly, and that it was a very special lady named Tahra. While he does not fully understand yet, we answer all the questions he asks. She will always have a very special place in our hearts.

Alex believes he would be a great big brother and we agree! He is so loving, nurturing and caring. He gets excited when talking about sharing his toys and books with a little brother or sister, which he already does with everyone at every possible opportunity. We all cannot wait for him to have a sibling and to add another special child to our family!

About us...
We met during our sophomore year in college, where we lived around the corner from each other in the same dorm. Our first date was making cookies for Sarah's family for Thanksgiving. We got into a flour war! After dating for a year, Sarah transferred for her last 2 years of college to a different school, several hours away. At first, a long distance relationship was a struggle for us. Because of this, we feel that we learned better communication skills which continue to strengthen our relationship. Absence definitely did make our hearts grow fonder!

After asking Sarah's parents permission, Joe proposed on a beach during our annual family vacation that included lots of extended family. We were married six years to the day after we started dating. We had a wedding party of fifteen to include siblings, extended family and friends who are now like family. Most of the guests said our beach themed wedding was the best that they had ever attended! It was a wonderful celebration of our love with the people who mean so much to both of us! We just celebrated our seventeenth anniversary last year. It is so hard to believe sometimes - "Time flies when you are having fun!"

Sarah is shy....Joe is very outgoing. Joe can make quick decisions....Sarah sits back and analyzes things first. Our personalities balance each other out quite nicely. Opposites attract....and that seems to be a very true statement for us!

We have matured together, learning from each other. We love each other more with each passing day that we are together. Having fun and making each other smile is always our top priority! We enjoy just spending time together, as a couple or with Alex, watching TV, reading in bed, traveling or spending time with friends and family.

Adoption Diary

My 1st Mother’s Day

Mother’s day allows for some reflection on this special gift of adoption. While I have no idea how difficult the decision is to place a child, I am forever thankful to a special lady named Tahra for her amazing gift of our Alex. He has been such an unbelievable treasure, bringing immense joy to our lives. It has been so much fun raising him and teaching him new things. And he in turn loves to teach others what he has learned! For as long as I can remember I wanted to be a mom. I was always playing ‘mom’ growing up. When we couldn’t conceive on our own, I still wanted to be a mom. I knew it didn’t matter if the baby was my blood. Tahra will always hold a special place in my heart for making her selfless decision. We are and will continue to give Alex the best life we can. Our love for him grows every day. There is definitely more than enough to spread around when we can expand our family. We promise to share the best we can with any other children we are given as treasures!

1st baseball practice

Alex was very excited that last night was his first official baseball practice of the season.  They got to throw the ball around and practice fielding.  Think this coach is going to be very good this year!
