We met while we were in school in Arizona. We had mutual friends that had been wanting to set us up on a date, and they called us to meet them for dinner. After that night we started dating and became inseparable. Three years later we were married surrounded by friends and family.
We have now been married for twelve years. Adoption has always been a plan for us. We started the process three years ago and then we found out we were pregnant. We felt very blessed to have Audrey and knew that her brother or sister would be through adoption. Here we are now thankful and excited for the future of our family.
We bought our home because of the schools and location. We have a huge park with trails and playgrounds that are easy to walk to. We love the view and being on top of a hill. It is a home we knew we would have children in one day. We have a three bedroom house and a dedicated playroom. We have an open living room to the kitchen that we spend most of our time in.

Brian is one of the most genuine people I have ever known. He can always make anyone laugh and is quick to make people comfortable around him. He is incredibly smart. Since I have known him he has been in school, working his way from being an ICU nurse to running a hospital. He has compassion for patients and wants to raise hospital standards so they receive better care.
As a husband he has amazed me by showing me love and being my best friend. There isn't anything I would not tell him. He is my rock.
As a father he is patient and understanding. The way he holds Audrey and is always there to guide her as she grows up is the sweetest thing I have ever seen. I know that when we adopt he will be a father that our child can rely on and learn from.
Interests: Being with friends and family, watching cheesy movies, attempting to garden, and shopping
I know that you have read this from every profile that you have read, but Allyson is one of the best people that I have ever had the opportunity to be around. She is my best friend and shows me every day that she is a fantastic mother. She knows every detail about what Audrey has been doing in day care and knows how to ensure continuity at home, allowing Audrey to thrive. Ally researches what the next developmental step is for Audrey using the information to stay ahead of the curve to introduce new foods, activities, and people to stimulate Audrey's young mind. But being a mother is only part of who Allyson is. She is a dedicated wife who has loved and supported me through a bachelors degree and two masters degrees, even when I was very distracted by the demands of family, work, and school. Ally goes out of her way to make me feel special, like when she helps me with my wardrobe when I have a big presentation or proof reading an assignment for me. At work she listens to her clients and provides them with the best service possible so they can feel good about themselves. Even with all of these demands on her time, Ally finds time for herself to take Bo on long walks, exercise, or hang out with her friends. I honestly have no idea how she does it all! I have learned so much about Allyson in the 15 years that we have been together, but I am not surprised that she is an amazing wife and mother; simply because she is an amazing person.
