About Us

Our Story

Our story begins with our mutual love of sports, bowling in particular and a little help from fate. I was in a bowling league with a couple who turned out to be Brian’s best friend’s parents. We started chatting online and then finally got together and never looked back.

Even though we had extremely different childhoods, I am the daughter of a career military man so I moved around a lot, Brian has remained in the same area his entire life, we have the same values and desires to become parents.

We've been together for over 13 years now and every year gets better and better. We've started travelling every 2 years and can't wait to share that with our child. We enjoy hanging out with friends and family, going to sporting events or just chilling on the couch with our 3 dogs watching TV.

Our Home

photo of adoptive family's home We bought our beautiful 3br home a little over 5 years ago in a better school district than we were in, in anticipation of having kids. We are on a quiet dead-end street and all the neighbors are so friendly, waving and stopping to chat as they walk by. We have a large front and back yard that kids would love to play in. We over look a wooded area in the back so we enjoy sitting on the deck and watching all the wildlife that come to visit, such as deer, bunnies, groundhogs, chipmunks and birds of many varieties.

Donna

adoptive family photo - Donna Hello! A little about me. I grew up in a family where my father was a career military man, so we traveled and lived many places which I do miss. I mean how many 8-year-olds can say they went skiing in the Alps in Austria! After my dad retired from the service we moved to PA, and I have been here ever since. Even when they moved to CA for a few years I stayed here since it was the first time I actually put roots down somewhere.

The traits that make me a good partner are that I am loyal, honest, caring, supportive of all his likes and trusting.

I have always loved kids. I taught 2–3-year-olds for 18 years and loved every second of it. I have this uncanny ability to calm any child down no matter what. And I have so much patience with children even when they are at their worst. I have so much love to give a child and would raise them to be supportive of everyone and accepting just I would be of them and their choices.

Brian

adoptive family photo - Brian Hi there! I am Brian. I am a very laid back, easy going person. The things that make me a good partner are that I am trustworthy, supportive and loving no matter what.

I have always wanted to be a father, to share my love of hockey with my child. To share my love of Christmas with, to share our vacations with to make memories.

As for what would make me a great parent is that I would be supportive of them no matter who or what they choose to be. They would always have my encouragement and love.
