Hello and thank you for thoughtfully considering us. We are Bridget and Brian, and we’re excited to begin our adoption journey.
Our story together began by meeting on a dating website. As we got to know each other, it turned out that we were both teachers and that we taught at schools just a block away from one another. We dated for two years before Brian took a knee, forgot his rehearsed speech, and just blurted out, “Will you marry me?” We were married in September of 2017 on a Sunday and went back to work the next day. We saved our honeymoon for that following summer.
We always knew we wanted a family. We had been to three fertility clinics and experienced a lot of heartache before we turned to adoption. We both believed that the only true tragedy would be if we couldn’t share our love with a child simply because it wasn’t our biological child.
