Who We Are
We are a caring and devoted couple. We met while working together in 2006. Aaron is rather shy, so I asked him for a date on New Year's Eve. Our first date was to an historic house, (I love history!). But the site was closed once we got there, so we spent a few hours walking around the gardens, talking and watching the sunset. We love traveling and every year we try to go somewhere new on vacation. Three years into dating we went to Boston for Aaron's birthday and that is when he proposed to me. I was completely surprised! But Boston holds a special place in our hearts forever as the place where our future family began. We were married in 2011 at a beautiful botanical garden. Our plan was to have an outdoor ceremony but it rained as if it were a monsoon outside. We decided to say our vows in the atrium but just as the ceremony was concluding the sun came out and lit the sky with a huge double rainbow! It was the kind of perfect moment that no one would have believed, except that we had all of our friends and family with us to remember it. There have been many more blessings throughout our life together, we sincerely hope that through adoption we can include the most important blessing of all, a little one, to fill our hearts and home.
Today we found out that we received a grant to reimburse the cost of our Home Study! This is on top of a very productive call with the Lawyer who will be working with us on the adoption and we are feeling really great about everything! Now all we need is to be chosen by someone special to really begin this journey! We are so excited!
This week I got re-certified in CPR and first aid. I do it every two years as part of my job. This year I realized that my long hair was getting in my way though, so the very next day I made an appointment to get it all cut off. I had been growing it out for about 5 years and it was past my waist. I got it cut up to my jaw line, and was able to donate the length of it to Locks for Love. It is a very freeing feeling. :)
