Hello! We are excited to introduce ourselves —and to become parents through adoption and share our lives full of love, laughter, and play. We fell in love in 2007. A neighbor and mutual friend introduced us on their porch. We immediately fell in love with each other’s laughter, kindness, and generosity. We married four years later. We have found in each other soul mates. We love creating together – painting murals, making bookshelves from wood, or cooking with vegetables from our garden. We love dancing at parties or when blasting music at our house. We truly enjoy being together.
We share joys and hardships together. We have carried each other through the ups and downs of life, including the loss of dear friends and Daniel’s mother. Riding the waves of celebration and grief has made us stronger, bringing us closer to one another and our community.
Our friends are a core part of our lives. An evening often involves raucous card games like spades, a quiet movie night, or friends just stopping by. Friends know they can stop by to talk, laugh together, or get us to make them chocolate chip cookies or blueberry pancakes.
We know you are making a big decision and we thank you for taking the time to get to know us.
