We have known each other for about 12 years. Dan grew up on a farm and Bri, from the suburbs. Even though we had different backgrounds, we had many similarities such as our big hearts, faith and passion for wanting to make the world a better place. We remained just friends until 2013 when Dan finally asked Bri on a date! Since that first date, we have been inseparable. Dan proposed only after 6 months of dating and we were married the following year. We truly love each other more with each day that passes and believe a good relationship stems from open communication and support. We are each other’s best friends and do everything together. We have wanted to become parents for as long as we can remember and are beyond excited. Medically, we are unable to have biological children. This was never a big deal to us because we knew we always wanted to adopt no matter what. Adoption is such a beautiful process and we cannot wait to meet and support you!
When we first got married, we bought a piece of land with a dream to build a house on one day. Our home is about 2,500 square feet with 4 bedrooms. It was important to us to make sure we had enough space to entertain all our families and friends for holidays, birthday parties, movie nights, bonfires, family board game and more! Our families will take any excuse to get together and we love it! We have plans to build a small barn with a few chickens and goats. Dan says he loved growing up on the farm and wants our children to be able to share that same joy. Our home is very child friendly and safe. We have a designated playroom along with a nursery ready to go! We will always be alongside the baby while inside or out! We are fortunate enough that the baby will not have to spend time in day care. Dan’s job allows time off during the week days and Bri’s job follows the school schedule. She is home from work by 3pm daily and off all summer and holidays! Bri's mom is excited and happy to help too!
Hi, I am Dan! I am 33 years old and work for New York State Law Enforcement. I grew up working on my family’s dairy farm and decided to become an officer after college to help serve and protect. I have a big heart and would help anyone in need. I believe in hard work and old school manners. I am an outdoors guy who loves animals and sports. My family and I are very close, they all live within a few minutes of us. My best memories as a kid are at my grandma’s house, swimming in the pond, fishing, playing volleyball and sitting by the bonfire roasting marshmallows! I cannot wait to take my son or daughter to grandma’s house to enjoy the simple things in life. Taking care of my family is my number one priority in life. I cannot wait to become a dad and watch our family grow through adoption. I want to teach my child the importance of having manners, being kind, working hard and to always be true to yourself.
Hi! I am a 30 year old pediatric school nurse and am so full of life. I wear my heart of my sleeve and am a caregiver by nature. I work in a Hispanic/Urban School in the city and feel as though I have the best job in the world! I am fluent in Spanish and English. In my free time, I enjoy organizing events to benefit my students and their families. My school primarily serves refugees who fled their countries due to natural disaster and other hardships. I feel so humbled and blessed with all god has provided me, and I try to give back as much as possible. Dan and I also serve Dove Missions which is an organization that provides education and healthcare to orphans in the Dominican Republic. Some of my most treasured memories are those spent in the Dominican. I enjoy being active and spending time outside. I am very soft spoken, open minded, gentle and patient. I love to have fun and it does not take much to make me happy! I believe it’s the simple things in life that make all the difference. I am driven by love and truly believe in kindness. I cannot wait to be a mom and encourage my child to reach for the stars.
