About Us

Garth is a merchandiser for several large, nationally known companies. He also attends college and is studying for his teaching degree in elementary education. Kevin is a training manager with a known restaurant group and has been waiting for his time to move up the corporate ladder. We were introduced by mutual friends in 2011 and not long after we realized that our love was going to last a lifetime. We have grown so much together over the last ten years. We got engaged in January 2015 just before marriage equality passed in June. It was like the stars were aligning for us, and we were so excited to have our marriage be recognized legally! On 8/8/16, we tied the knot in Vegas with some of our closest friends in attendance! We even have matching infinity sign tattoos that when put together, represent our wedding day, 8/8!

Our Home & Pets

We live in a beautiful town just a few miles from the waters of the Great Lakes. There is a small downtown for shopping and dining out, so we are conveniently close to anything we may want or need. We have a cute, three-bedroom bungalow near an elementary school. We have two of the world’s best dogs. Mahogany is a 4 year old teacup chihuahua, and Buffy is a 7 year old chiweenie. We lost our first furbaby, Muffin, in December 2020 after 13 great years together. We had hoped to adopt before we lost Muff; he would have been the best furbrother ever!

Our Extended Family

We may not have a large family, but they make up for size with their outpouring of love. Garth grew up with two half-siblings and has a niece and two nephews through his half-sister. His mom and dad cannot wait to meet our future baby! Outside of his immediate family, he has a ton of distant relatives and family friends. We see them every year at the annual family reunion.

Like Garth, Kevin has a small family, but he also has a small extended family. Kevin’s family has experienced a lot of loss in recent years, but he still has his loving mom, his grandmother, two brothers, and a half-sister. He is also an uncle to two nieces and one nephew.

Besides our small families, we are blessed with some of the greatest friends. They are super excited for our growing family and are eager to meet the newest addition. Sometimes friends make the best family!

What Led Us To Adoption

We never thought we were going to be able to get married, so creating a family of our own always seemed like a fairy tale. Well, dreams can and do come true! We cannot wait to grow our family through adoption! Garth always knew that he wanted to have his own version of Cheaper by the Dozen. It took Kevin a little longer to jump on the baby bandwagon, but now that he has, he’s equally excited.
