Ready to be a family of three!

Thank you for taking the time to learn about us; we know that the decisions you're making in the coming months take a great deal of courage. We're honored that you would consider placing your baby with us. Adoption was always on our radar, even before we learned that building our family biologically wasn't in the cards for us. We're excited about building our family through the miracle of adoption!

We live in a peaceful suburb with plenty of beautiful parks for family trips. Education is important to us, and we live in one of the top school districts in our state. Our home is located within walking distance of two parks, the elementary school and the middle school, and of course the library, which Julie visits often--she is a book worm!

This child will be our first, and would be joining a large and loving family. There are four loving future aunts and six excited future uncles who can’t wait to welcome a beautiful little niece or nephew into our family! This baby will also be the very first grandchild, which means four spry grandparents in their fifties ready to shower love and attention on them. And let’s not forget the great-grandparents who are anxious to knit adorable outfits and bounce him or her on their knees at Thanksgiving dinner. It’s not just all old people though--we also spend lots of time with our two sweet goddaughters, ages two and five, who will probably be our baby’s first friends!

Julie is an English teacher and looks forward to spending hours reading to our child. Julie was a 30-hour-per-week nanny for many years during school, mostly working with families of four. She loved taking the children to Library Baby Story Hour. Craft projects and cookie baking are other activities Julie tried out as a nanny and can’t wait to share with our own
children. Brian looks forward to teaching our children how to play tennis and hockey, and how to build the most epic sandcastles on the beach. As an engineer, Brian builds truly exceptional sand castles!

We know this is an incredibly hard decision for you. Please know it is our sincerest wish to provide unconditional love and support for this baby. We hope you will consider allowing us to be a part of your baby’s life. To learn more, please call our friend and adoption attorney Allan Hazlett at (785) 235-5497, or e-mail us directly at

Who We Are

Ever been waiting to cross the street, standing with a few strangers? Well, we believe people should put their phones down and say hello when that happens, because that is in fact how we met! It was our first day of College and we were waiting to cross the street. Brian was carrying a musical instrument case, and Julie asked him what he played. And that was that! We dated straight through all four years of college and got married shortly after graduation. Music has always played an important role in our lives. Brian plays the trumpet and Julie loves to sing. We also share a love for being outside and working in the garden. By far the most important thing to both of us, though, is family. We are both the oldest in our own families, and each have three younger siblings. Growing up in large families was very special for both of us, and we can't wait to have a family of our own!

Adoption Diary

When life gives you lemons…

We are big believers in making the best of every situation and finding joy in unlikely places. This past weekend is a good example. On Halloween night our home lost power due to a big storm in the area. Our electric company estimated that power would be restored on Sunday. Our plan had been to work on cleaning our bedroom that weekend (we are painting it—blue!), which would be rather hard to do without light! So, gifted with an unexpected weekend with no set to-do list or events, we hopped in the car and headed to Annapolis, Maryland for a spontaneous weekend trip! We walked around the town, sipped warm coffees to warm up from the cold breeze from off the water, and even got to attend mass at the Naval Academy. Here’s a picture of Brian outside the coffee shop. It was so nice to have time to be together and enjoy our family of two as we eagerly await becoming a family of three!

A Tale of Four Weddings: Wedding #3

This past weekend, we welcomed ANOTHER great brother to the family when Brian’s youngest sister Emily married her college sweetheart. Emily is a special ed teacher, and her new husband Rob is an accountant. Emily loves to paint, and can often be found at her easel working on new projects. Rob, like Brian, loves to play ice hockey. It was a gorgeous wedding day filled with love, laughter and dancing! Congrats, Rob and Emily! Please enjoy this picture of the beautiful bride, who can’t wait to become an aunt some day soon!
