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 live and raise a family. There are so many family oriented events and resources in our community. 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 to read to and protect. 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. We are working with an agency and will provide you support and resources.

We want to 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. They will always be loved and supported equally.

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. 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 - if we could get through this, 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. Our dog wore a tuxedo and we had a kids table with games, activites and a pinata. It was one of the best days of our lives.
I hope to be able to tell you about it one day. 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, education and protecting our planet. 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. We have always had a desire to adopt a child.

Adoption Diary

It’s HOT and rainy!

We’re soaking up the sunshine when we can with a family pool pass to our local hotel pool, a fun birthday pool party this past weekend for one of Karlyn’s girl friends from preK and we’re going to stay at the beach this coming weekend with our good friends.  Karlyn’s Kindergarten graduation ceremony was held outdoors yesterday. They had a short ceremony with singing, dancing and their dragon mascot graduating with them.  It was the sweetest.  We are so proud of this group of kids for overcoming such a tough year.   

We visited our local Florida History Museum this weekend while it rained.  They had an adorable huge two toed sloth that we got to see in a close encounter in their exhibit “Survival of the Slowest.  It was so cute!!  Our museum is free and amazing and we could spend hours in there.  I especially like to shop the gift shop.  Last day of school is tomorrow than we’ll take a little break before summer day camp starts.  She can’t wait for Musical Theatre camp at her school to start.  Talk soon!

Back to It!

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