We cannot begin to understand the path that has brought you to us (Bryan and Katy). We do know that you must be a caring, brave, and loving person because you are considering an adoption plan for your child. We have so much love to give another child in a home that is stable, supportive, faithful and full of life.
When we met, it was truly ‘love at first sight.’ We dated for a year and have been
happily married for 10! We adopted our daughter, Ella, five years ago and thank God everyday for her. She has inspired us to wake up each day with a devotion to be the best parents and people we can be. We can only pray and hope that we will have another chance at being someone’s Mommy and Daddy again, and that Ella can be the big sister she so desperately wants to be.

In 2011 we were blessed with our beautiful adopted daughter, Ella. We have never been so overwhelmed with love and gratitude for anything more in our lives. She has always known that we were brought together through the gift of adoption. It is our intention to tell Ella and our next adopted child their birth story, from a very young age, so that they can have the same respect, admiration and gratitude as we do for their birthparents’ selfless gift to our family. She asks and prays everyday for a baby for our family. We know that having another child in our family would make ALL our dreams come true!
About our Home/Pets:
We live in a beautiful, kid friendly, neighborhood with a park/playground right down the street. Ella and I (Katy) will often walk to her school with our sweet golden retriever Magnolia (Maggie) since it is so close by. Maggie loves getting attention from all the people we pass! We are very close to our family and friends and get together on a weekly basis. Our family finds the fun in every day we are blessed with!
