We met through friends of family and started dating soon thereafter. We instantly clicked and realized how much we had in common. Spending time together and getting to know one another was effortless and fun. It honestly felt as though we already knew each other when we first met. It wasn’t long before we met each other’s families and once that went well, we knew “this was for real.” We dated for about three years before moving into our home together in May 2018. We got engaged on the beach in Florida in January 2020 and have plans to wed in May 2021.
As a couple, we have grown quite a lot over the years. Life has certainly handed us our fair share of challenges but through it all, we have formed an even stronger relationship. We know that with love and support from each other, we can get through anything. We have learned to stand by each other as best friends and as husband and wife. We have always known that we wanted to have a family together. When we found out that Caroline would not be able to carry a child biologically, it didn’t take long for us to think, “maybe this card was dealt to us for a reason.” We strongly believe that what makes a family is not genetics, but rather unconditional love. Now, with the help of your selfless decision, we are so hopeful and grateful to be building our family through adoption.
