Dear Expectant Mother,
As we look forward to realizing our dream of becoming dads, we know your decision to choose adoption is one of the hardest things you will ever do. We admire your courage, strength, and this act of selflessness. Know your child will never lack for love or compassion, and we will provide the best family possible. We would love to share this journey together and be there to support you and your child.
Having grown up in loving and supportive homes, we knew we wanted children. What we want most is for them to reach their full potential, and to raise them to be loving, confident, and respectful of others. We hope to travel with them and teach them about the diverse world and how amazing it truly is.
We are so grateful that you have taken the time and interest to check out our profile to get to know us better. Though this is only a brief introduction, we hope you are able to see the love, family, friends, and laughter surrounding us. Thank you again for considering us to be your child's adoptive parents who will love and care for them throughout their life.
We met eleven years ago in North Carolina, and after seven years together 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 in the paint and design industry and Kaleb works in Finance. A typical day includes partaking in various home projects, lounging around, hanging out with friends and family, and playing with our Frenchie, Luna. 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. We cannot wait to share our personalities, love, and world with your little one.
We live in a family-oriented neighborhood close to many of our friends. 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 home has four bedrooms and three baths, as well as a large fenced-in backyard, where we enjoy having friends and family over for cookouts and playing games. Our Frenchie, Luna, is spoiled rotten; she enjoys playing in the big yard with her tennis ball and frisbee for endless hours of fetch.
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 three nephews and one 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. In the spring, we travel to Florida with Brian’s family, and in the summer we do a beach trip with Kaleb’s family. Christmas is celebrated with both sides, as it’s a time of the year that we truly love and value. 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
We connected very early in our relationship after discussing each other’s wishes to one day become parents. We have always believed that adoption was the best path for us to do this. From seeing our friends grow their families through adoption, we are excited for the blessings and happiness that await us as we go through the process. We have waited through many milestones, including marriage, building our home, becoming uncles, and travel to arrive at this place in our lives to start growing our family. We look forward to this next chapter in our lives and are excited for the joys and memories that it will bring.
