We first met 9 years ago when we were introduced by Michelle's sister. Although our journey began as friends it wasn't long before we started dating. We quickly learned how much we had in common and knew we were meant to be together. After about 2 years of dating, Brent proposed and we were married on June 7, 2014.
We both come from families with older siblings who all have kids and are excited to expand our family through adoption. We have lots of fun family traditions we will share and expand upon as a family (see photos & videos to get a closer glimpse!)
Our friends & family tell us we have an abundance of love in our personalities and skills to share. Before pursing private adoption we were foster parents. And we are so blessed to have welcomed Kai into our home. This experience affirmed to us that adoption is the right path for us! We are hopeful for an open adoption as we currently have an open relationship with his grandma & birth mom. We see the immense benefits, but are also open to having the type of relationship that makes you most comfortable, whether that is open, semi-open, or closed. We believe that is your decision to make. We also would like you to know that we cannot begin to imagine what a difficult decision this must be, and we want to wish you all the strength, courage, and hope as you go through this process.
