Brian & Brian

dear expectant mother

Thank you for taking the time to discover a little about “The Brians,” as our friends and family call us. We appreciate and admire your openness and desire to find the perfect family for your child. We know this decision has not come easily for you, and it is not a decision we have taken lightly either. We are prepared to offer our full love, support, and attention to a new addition to our family. We are honored and blessed you have even taken the time to consider us as a family.

One of the greatest freedoms our parents gave us were homes without any preconceived notions of who or what we should be. We have no doubt we will create this same environment for our family, so your child will be nurtured, loved, and supported down whatever path is right for them. The past two years with Leith have been the greatest years of our lives. We were blessed with a spirited little one we have watched learn, grow, and experience new adventures. We know within our hearts that having a larger family is meant for all three of us.

We both come from very different backgrounds, but it has created an extensive network of love and support from our families. We are ready to take this step to become a family of four with the full support and encouragement of our families and friends.

Thank you for your courage, commitment, and hope as we join in this journey together.

Thank you for your courage, commitment, and hope as we join in this journey together.

About Us

Brian W. grew up in California, and Brian P. grew up as a farm boy in a small town in Iowa. We met through a mutual friend while in Seattle, where we both relocated for work and school. We’ve been together for over nine years, were married in 2013, and currently live in Texas. We both work in retail management, which allows for flexible schedules. We are complete opposites of one another, but this allows us to be fully supportive and engaged in each other’s personal interests. Brian W. enjoys being outside cycling, while Brian P. continuously trains for half and full marathons. We combine our individual interests by cycling and running simultaneously, kid bike trailer in tow with our son Leith. When we bought our bike trailer two years ago, we bought a two-seater since we always knew we wanted two children.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a quiet, family-oriented neighborhood just blocks away from restaurants, grocery stores, multiple parks, and coffee shops. At any given time, we can look out our windows and see parents and their children walking down the street with their furry friends tagging along. Our home is a contemporary townhome. It has an open loft feel with tons of natural light and a private, secure outdoor space for our pets and family to enjoy year round. We have two dogs, Daisy, a lab mix, and Daphne, a pointer mix, as well as two cats, Bean and Gizzy.

Our Extended Family

Travel has always been a focus of our relationship. We live by the belief that the memories created and experiences gained will influence us for a lifetime. Both of our families live outside of Texas, but we make it a priority every year to travel and visit everyone. The holidays are our busiest time at work, so it is our tradition to travel right after the first of the year to celebrate the holidays with our family.

Travel is a family affair for us. Two years and six continents later, Leith has been on every single trip with us. He may be too young to remember these trips now, but our memories will always be what we did as a family, our children included. We have combined our travels with Brian P.’s love of running by selecting destination races around the world. Similarly, we have gone to such places as Iceland, Alaska, and Berlin to support Brian W.’s swimming and cycling endeavors. Our extended families travel with us as a personal cheer squad to enjoy vacation and family time in new and exciting places. There’s no better way to experience a new city and culture than with family, on foot or by bike.

Our Adoption Story

Our upbringings have instilled in us the deep love and support our families have always shown for one another. We’ve always recognized our passion goes beyond the work we do and how much money we make to the people we surround ourselves with. We began the adoption process for Leith three years ago. Nine months later, we were able to welcome Leith into our family. He is becoming more and more independent each day. We are ready to begin the journey again—for us, for Leith, and for the family we dream of creating. We both grew up with a brother as a playmate, best friend, and confidant growing up. We cherished those years, and we want Leith to have the same opportunity.
