We met in 2005, on a blind date set up by Jessica’s best friend and it was love at first sight. We became instant soul mates and best friends. After 18 months of dating and getting to know each other, we married. From that day on we wanted the same things out of life, which included a wonderful home to share with family, surrounding ourselves with friends to celebrate with and building our life to share together. In 2014, we decided to begin a new journey and move from Orlando, FL to Charlotte, NC to which we now call home.
It has always been important for us to support each other's personal and professional goals. One of the great things about us as a couple is that we have a lot in common and share the same moral values. We also support each other's interests and respect each other's differences. Together we love to travel, experimenting in the kitchen and sharing special times with our family and friends.
Now after being married for 10 years we are ready to start a family. As we considered expanding our family, we knew we wanted to adopt and are determined this is the right journey for us.
We are grateful to have bought our house when we moved to Charlotte. We decided to build a home in a new, smaller community about 20 minutes from downtown. Our house has four bedrooms with plenty of space for a baby. We are very excited to use one of our extra bedrooms and make it into a nursery. We have a fenced back yard with plans for a small swing set or area for our child to play outdoors.
One of the main reasons we fell in love with this neighborhood is that it is very close to a beautiful park where we visit regularly as a family, taking walks and playing frisbee golf. The neighborhood is a very family friendly, diverse community with residences from all backgrounds. We have had the pleasure of making friends with several of our neighbors and we are actively involved in our community’s HOA.
Our meeting really was love at first sight. From the moment we met 12 years ago, we have been inseparable. In all that time Jessica has been an amazing partner and I'm proud she chose to be my wife. She is truly loving, resilient, dependable, and driven. She is extremely intelligent and has always been successful in her career where she is admired and respected by her clients and co-workers alike. She always brings out the best in people by encouraging them to reach HIGHER.
Jessica will make a great role-model as she is the type of person who sees what she wants and works extremely hard to get it. There is nothing she can't do. I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT JESSICA WILL MAKE A TRULY AMAZING MOM!
