We are so grateful that you have taken the time and interest to check out our profile to get to know us better. While we cannot imagine everything you may be going through, we admire your strength, courage, and selflessness in choosing adoption. Though this is only a brief introduction of our lives, we hope you are able to see the love, family, friends, and laughter surrounding us. As we look forward to realizing our dream of becoming dads, we know you will likely have many questions along the way.
Having grown up in loving and supportive homes, ever since we met ten years ago we knew that we wanted to have children. What we want most for our children is for them to reach their full potential and raise them to be loving, confident, and respectful of others. We hope to be able to travel with them and teach them about the diverse world and how amazing it truly is.
Currently we live in our new home with our two Frenchies Juno and Luna. We have been fortunate to have great jobs allowing us to have a large enough home to raise a family where our children can have a bedroom of their own, a yard where they can play, and a park right down the street.
So while we don’t know everything that has brought you to this point, as you continue down this journey, know that we are prepared to be there to support you and assure you that your child will be taken care of and be surrounded by a loving family. Thank you for taking your time to continue to read our profile and we look forward to communicating with you and potentially meeting you soon.
We met ten years ago in North Carolina and after 7 years Kaleb popped the question in our NYC apartment after a romantic evening. In 2015 we were married in a beautiful, quaint mountain town. Brian works within the paint & design industry and Kaleb works in Finance. A typical day includes partaking in various home projects, lounging around and playing with our two Frenchies, Juno and Luna, or hanging out with friends and family. While Brian is more of a runner and Kaleb enjoys group exercise classes, together we enjoy running races for good causes and playing tennis. We also enjoy travel and experiencing various cultures around the world.
Our house has four bedrooms and three baths with a large fenced in backyard where we enjoy entertaining guests and playing with our dogs.
We decided on this neighborhood given its location is minutes from the city in a historic area with much to offer including great schools, parks, and restaurants. The tree lined streets are active with families walking by to say hello giving it that classic southern charm.
Our Extended Family
We feel so blessed to share special bonds with our loving, supportive families. Kaleb’s parents and three brothers live a few hours away. Kaleb has 3 nephews and 1 niece. Brian is originally from Ohio where his brother, sister, and parents still reside. Each of Brian’s siblings have two boys. Through FaceTime, frequent trips, and phone calls we are constantly keeping in touch with both of our families.
Annual joint vacations are a tradition for each side of our families. In the spring we travel to Florida with Brian’s family and in the summer we do a beach trip with Kaleb’s family. Every Christmas is celebrated with both sides as it’s a time of the year that we truly love and value. Traditionally we go shopping the day after Christmas with Kaleb’s Mom and take advantage of all the sales. In November, we take turns hosting a “Friendsgiving” meal with all of our close friends and their families.
The fall is our favorite and most enjoyable season filled with football games, annual clam bakes that Brian’s parents host, and trips to the mountains where we rent a cabin with friends and family. This annual escape is very relaxing, and the fall colors provide a great backdrop for hiking or stopping for a picnic.
What Led Us To Adoption
Very early in our relationship we discussed one day of wanting to start a family. Much of this comes from our upbringings and as the years have gone by we have seen our siblings, friends, and cousins all begin to start their families. After many milestones including marriage, constructing our forever home, becoming uncles, career growth, and travel we feel that we are ready to begin ours as well. So we began the adoption process and are ready to shower our love on a child.
