If you choose us as adoptive parents for your precious child, we will raise him or her to always feel loved, cherished, and respected. We would raise your child to feel secure in the knowledge that we will support him or her no matter what life brings. If you choose us, we will raise your baby to be kind, forgiving, and considerate.
We want to give your baby the opportunity to experience cultures around the world, to go on family vacations to Disneyland, and to be able to roll his or her eyes when Dad makes stereotypical Dad jokes. We both love learning and hope to instill this passion in your baby, whether that be college, arts, or a skill he or she loves.
More than anything in the world, we want to be good parents.
If you choose us, know that you will always be just as loved, cherished, and respected as your child. Your baby will know that he or she has birthparents who love him or her more than anything in the world.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us and for considering us as adoptive parents for your baby.
David was born and raised in Arizona, with his two younger brothers. Brandon was born in Southern California and raised in the Phoenix area with his younger sister and brother, who still live close by. We met each other at a Christmas party in 2008 and began dating shortly thereafter. After a little more than two years dating, we were married in a small lakeside park in Connecticut, with our closest friends and family there in support. David is an attorney with his own law practice, and Brandon is a CPA for a public company. We love dinners with friends, spending the weekends with our daughter, and quiet nights reading or watching Netflix.
We recently built our home in Arizona. We love it here! We have great schools, restaurants, and parks nearby. We have a large lawn in the backyard. Now that Isabelle is getting big enough, we would like to put a swing set back there in the near future. We often visit a super-fun local park, which has a duck pond, playsets, and a miniature train for the kids to ride on. Our dog Spud, a Puggle, also shares our home with us.
Our Extended Family
We have a large extended family that we see on a frequent basis. On David’s side of the family, he has two younger brothers, one of whom is married. Both his parents live near Tucson (about two hours south of Phoenix), and we spend many of the major holidays down there. Brandon is also the oldest on his side of the family, and he has one brother and one sister (who is married). All of Brandon’s immediate family lives in the Phoenix Metro area, and his parents are only a 15-minute drive away. Brandon’s mom watches our daughter every Monday, and it is the highlight of Isabelle’s week! She is definitely spoiled by her grandparents, and they are itching for a new baby to love on. Brandon’s sister and her husband have four (soon to be five) very sweet children, with the oldest in first grade. We enjoy spending many of our weekends and vacations with them. Both of our families couldn’t be more excited and supportive of our adoption journey.
Our Adoption Story
We both grew up wanting to have children and to raise a family. Around the time we were married, we talked about having kids but knew we wanted to wait until we were both finished with school and settled into our careers. In 2015, we were so fortunate to be able to adopt our daughter Isabelle. Raising her has been the most challenging, fun, and rewarding adventure of our entire lives, and the three of us are ready to grow some more! Between cousins and playmates, there are plenty of kids around, but we hope we can take the next step and expand our family.
