It is so kind of you to take the time to get to know our family. We have thought about you so often as we gathered pictures and reflected on our story. Our story is full of joy and silliness and hard work and adventure, but it is primarily a story of LOVE. You are facing so many decisions as you carry this child and think about what the best path for you will be. We hope that you feel supported and loved as you navigate these choices. We honor the courage and strength that it takes for you to consider adoption. We are so moved when we think of how you and this baby might become a part of our family’s story.
As you look through our photos, you’ll notice right away that we love to spend time together. On most days, we like to take walks with our pups, chat at the dinner table, and read together before bed (Harry Potter and Percy Jackson these days). We go hiking on the weekends and paddle-boarding or canoeing on warm days. We are lucky to live near the ocean and spend happy days on the beach building sandcastles and collecting shells. We love celebrating holidays. Every year, we plan a family Halloween costume…we are going to be Pokémon Trainers this year! We host Friends-giving and travel home to see our families at Christmas. We are interested in adding in traditions from your family as well if you would like to share them with us.
