Our journey together began six years ago, and it has been an amazing ride full of love and constant growth ever since. We are super excited to enter the next phase of parenthood together. Darren works as an account executive and leadership coach for an education technology company, and Larry works as an executive assistant at a small healthcare non-profit. We met online, instantly connected, and have been inseparable ever since.
Darren loves cartoons and video games and is excited about doing every “silly” dance that embarrasses Larry but the baby will love. Larry is an avid runner and can’t wait to take the baby for long walks at the local park. We have a two-year-old Yorkie named Baxter who is sweet as pie and always wants to cuddle.
Parenthood has been a part of our conversation since the early days of our relationship. With such a strong focus on education and our careers, we knew we wanted to wait until the perfect time to adopt. It has always been important for
us to share the many experiences of parenthood together and equally.
Like many people, we were fortunate enough to be able to transition to fully remote roles in 2020, allowing us to virtually choose where we wanted to live. We relocated and purchased a brand new home within minutes of our friends and family, ensuring that we have a strong and available support system for our future child.
We currently live in a suburb of a major metropolitan area in Georgia. We have a large new townhouse in a beautiful community and amazing neighbors whom we socialize with often. Our favorite thing about our home is the modern and open kitchen that allows us to cook and entertain guests at the same time. We also love our fenced-in backyard that allows us to grill and have quiet dinners outdoors.
Darren is the energetic and social butterfly of the two of us. He is a kid at heart always watching cartoons and playing his video game. He is caring and also ensures that our needs and wants are met.
He is really affectionate and loves quality time so the baby will have no worries of not getting enough attention. haha
Larry is so full of love and acceptance. He is very intelligent and is the go-to person for everything and everyone. Larry will be the one who both Darren and the baby will go to for the simplest questions. haha.
He has such a wonderful spirit that it draws people in and he is instantly their bestfriend. His value for communication will strongly benefit the relationship with a child.
