Who We Are
Brad and I met while working a summer job in our hometown in 2005. We built an incredibly strong relationship over the years while dating. We had a long distance relationship for about 5 years while I finished
college and earned my Master's degree. During that time, we grew to know and love each other for who we truly are, flaws and all. Then in 2013, we finally tied the knot and have been happily married for the past 6 years and counting. Over the last 6 years, our relationship has become even stronger and more pure through the hardships of infertility, the joys of making memories, and our general day to day life together. We left the honeymoon stage behind us and embraced what marriage truly is--loving, respecting, appreciating and supporting your partner whole-heartedly through the roller coaster that is life.
We believe it is extremely important for a family to spend quality time together. We recently decided to take a trip to a local trampoline park. It was pretty epic and we all had an amazing time. Now, Brad and I may have been a bit sore the next day but it was worth every smile and laugh we got to share with our son. These are the sorts of moments we want to continue having as our family grows through adoption. Brad and I are hoping each and every day that a special birth mom will find us and help us to be able to love another child with all our hearts.
We celebrated Christmas with Brad’s side of the family today. We played games, opened gifts, shared a wonderful meal, and spent quality time together. Every year we wear our Santa hats and bells. This year was especially great because Owen and his cousin are finally all old enough to play together. O, the laughter that was heard!
