Hi! We are both so thrilled that we found Open Arms and have the opportunity to become parents. Adoption has always felt right to us. Several aunts, uncles, and friends have come into our lives through adoption. We are teachers who love working with kids every day. We believe that each child is unique and special. Parenting will give us the opportunity to guide them through all the beautiful and difficult moments that life will bring. We have a home with so much love, support, and joy and would be so grateful to share that with a child.
The thing we value most is family. We share a two-family house with Rebecca’s brother and his family. Our nephew, Jackson, and his sister, Rowan, are a huge part of our lives and we know they will be amazing cousins to our child one day. Rebecca’s parents live two blocks away. We gather there every Sunday to watch football or swim in the pool and eat a yummy home cooked meal. Courtney’s family is also a wonderful support system. We often spend time with them at her mom’s house, the beach, or on our annual Disney trip.
It is simply amazing what you are considering doing and we hope for your peace and health as you make your decision.
Courtney and Rebecca
