Dear Expectant Mother,
As we look forward to realizing our dream of becoming dads, we want to take this time to say thank you. We admire your courage, your 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 should that be something you need or want.
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 him or her throughout his or her 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. 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. Brian can’t wait to share his love of the arts with your child, and Kaleb can’t wait to share his love of adventure and outdoors. 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. Its location is minutes from the city and in a historic area with much to offer, including great schools, parks, and restaurants. The tree-lined streets are filled with families walking by to say hello, giving it that classic Southern charm. Our beautiful 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 Frenchies, Luna and Franklin, enjoy playing in the big yard with their toys. We are so incredibly excited to spend our evenings finding four-leaf clovers in the yard, catching fireflies, and having campouts on the weekends with your child.
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 our families.
Annual joint vacations are a tradition. We can’t wait to have your child join us on these fun trips! 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 season, filled with football games, annual clam bakes that Brian’s parents host, and trips to the mountains, where we rent a cabin. The fall colors provide a great backdrop for hiking or picnics. This is a fun-filled trip where we mine for gems, go on hikes, fish, and visit fall festivals.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always believed that adoption was the best path to grow our family as we have witnessed first hand the miracle of this journey. From seeing our friends grow their families through adoption, we are excited for the blessings and happiness that await us as we go through this 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.
