Crissy & Brian

Hello! We are down-to-earth, loving and so ready to love and raise another amazing child.

Hello! We are Brian and Crissy and we live in Gainesville, FL. We have an amazing 6 year old daughter named Karlyn and a rescued 2.5 year old American Foxhound mix named Dunkin. We live in a college town that, surprisingly, is an amazing place to raise a family. There are so many family friendly events and resources for children by living near a large university. We love to travel, visit the beach, go camping, fishing, hiking and ride roller coasters! Karlyn is so excited to have a younger brother or sister. We have a very supportive network of family and friends nearby that are there for us if we need anything.

We are patient and flexible and are open to any amount of contact that you are comfortable with. We do not have a preference for a certain sex or race. We are willing to travel for you too! We are working with an agency and will provide you support and resources.

We want to promise you that if chosen, we will provide your child unconditional love, support them in all their hopes and dreams, teach them healthy habits, read them books every night, have lots of playdates and enroll them in activities that match their passions whether that be sports, music, or art. They, along with Karlyn, will always be our number one love and priority.

We want to wish the best for you in your pregnancy and decision. Thank you for reading about us.

-------------------------

Brian and I were in the same extended group of friends in college We'd run into each other at parties or around town. We both were often dating other people. Later as our group of friends still in town grew smaller, we started seeing more of each other. Our love story began then and there. Brian drew me in by his sense of humor, his ambitions to become an engineer and his honest and kind soul. We fell in love and moved in together but we needed more space for us and our adopted dog Beefy. We bought a piece of land in town and built our first home. We did the painting, flooring and tiling ourselves. This was a true test of our relationship and if we could get through this, we knew we could get through anything. It was a wonderful experience and we got married on our property in 2009 with our closest family and friends on hand. Karlyn was born in 2014 and is the light of our lives. We are able to provide her experiences that we never had as children. We own rental properties and enjoy repairing and remodeling homes. Our little family is no drama, hard working, and prioritizes family and education. Our strength is that we work through any problem or struggle together. We've struggled to get pregnant again and it would be high risk as my first was. We are certain adoption is the right path for us to grow our family,

Back to It!

First swim lesson in a year!  She’s so happy.

Happy Easter!

We hope you and yours had a very happy easter!  We had the best day celebrating with our friends at our house.  The kids hunted for 60+ eggs in the back yard and had a blast.  The friday before we went strawberry picking with other friends and Karlyn and I brought home 6 lbs of organic strawberries!  They are beautiful and we found this great organic farm really close to our house.  Since half of the strawberries are already eaten, we’ll need to go back soon!  I made homemade strawberry shortcake and it was so delicious.  I hadn’t realized it was made with biscuits and not pound or angel food cake.  Brian and Dylan loved it!  Another work week and I’m already thinking about this years vacations.  Our sights are set on Dry Tortugas and Yellowstone so we’ll see!  Till next time!
