About Us

Family defines who we are, and we’re excited to grow and continue to expand our love. We met through friends at a restaurant one Sunday morning, and our lives were never the same. After dating for two years, we became engaged and married six months later. Anthony works as a sales manager and personal fitness trainer, and Kelli is a director of diversity, equity, and inclusion helping healthcare leaders and providers. Our family believes in laughter, and we always support and encourage one another. The cornerstone of our lives is faith and communication. We love spending quality time with our two children and family, vacationing, game nights, watching movies, singing to our favorite songs (loudly, lol), and taking walks with our dog.

Our Home & Pets

Our spacious, three-bedroom home is equipped with a bonus room often used for movie nights and located in a diverse, family-oriented, established neighborhood filled with awesome neighborhood activities and decorating contests. Our kitchen, den, and fenced-in backyard patio area are where most of our family conversations happen as we use this area to cook, laugh, have dance-offs, and entertain family. We live in one of the best school districts and within walking distance from many restaurants, shopping areas, family parks, and walking trails. Our neighborhood is also very pet friendly. Our dog, Diesel, is the neighborhood hero and often said to be the best dog in the neighborhood!

Our Extended Family

It was instilled in us at an early age that family is EVERYTHING. Because of that, we are very close to our families and come together as a unit at any given moment, whether it is to help, support, guide, or simply just be there for each other.

Each of us has two siblings and a host of nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and godchildren. Unfortunately, both of our mothers have passed away, but they taught us to be loving, the art of forgiveness, and to give the greatest gift of laughter and love to others. Our fathers and one grandmother are still living, and we get together throughout the week for dinner and to spend time together.

Family reunions happen often, and we come together to celebrate holidays and birthdays, create new traditions, and fondly remember those who are no longer with us. Every Christmas, it is tradition to bake cookies, have a huge family breakfast and dinner, and open one gift on Christmas Eve before opening all others on Christmas Day. We wouldn’t trade our families for the world, and we are all excited about this awesome journey filled with new beginnings and more love.

What Led Us To Adoption

There are many things in our lives that have led us to believe adoption is the perfect path for us. When we met, Anthony had two children from a prior marriage. We would often talk about growing our family together but unfortunately experienced fertility challenges, including four miscarriages and two unsuccessful rounds of IVF. Through all the disappointments, we never gave up in believing that expanding our family was absolutely for us, now more than ever. We now had to look at what was truly important for our family. After praying and communicating with family, we understand that parenthood is the priority. It is clear our motivation and inspiration to expand our family and love are through the awesome power of adoption.
