Family of four that values the ordinary days together hopes to adopt and make life together even more extraordinary!
When we started on our adoption journey we were overwhelmed by the advice.
The “adoption experts” said “no photos with sunglasses,” “sound excited, but not too excited,” “no dogs.” What in the world?!
How will you know us for us if we aren’t being real? Like that Ryan is deathly afraid of spiders so our oldest son is in charge of squishing them; or that Lisa has earned the knick name “smarty farty” from our kids (yes, we said fart).
So to heck with the “expert advice.” This is Us. Real and unfiltered.
We are a devoted family of four, hoping to become a party of five through adoption. We love being parents (mainly so Ryan can tell lame dad jokes) and we are over the moon excited to think about growing our family through adoption. We can't wait to fill our house with more laughter and our sons are so excited to have another sibling to build forts and read stories with.
If you give us the opportunity to love your child, we would love BIG. We would explore the world around us, splash in the puddles on a rainy day, build sand castles at the beach, create art, ride bikes, make music, read books, and, play too many board games!
If you give us the opportunity to love your child, we would love you too.
We hope our pictures and Diary give you an authentic look at what our ordinary yet extraordinary family life looks like.
We wish you much peace and strength as you walk this journey. We have a huge space in our hearts that we are keeping open for you and your child.
❤️ Ryan and Lisa
