Hello and thank you for taking the time to get to know us! We understand this must be a challenging time for you. We have so much respect for the strength and bravery it takes to pursue adoption. We are praying for each step and decision you make in this process. We have been married for 11 years and are more in love today then we were 11 years ago. We live in central Ohio and have two beautiful girls Brenè (4) and Alaina (2). We are very involved in our church and our faith is important to us. We love each other dearly and we have a lot of love to give. We hope to meet you soon.

Brené was our first precious gift. She was adopted at birth and we have an open relationship with her birth mother. She is 4 years old now and full of so much life!

Brené is shy in large crowds but once you get to know her she has a wonderful sense of humor and loves to tell stories and sing. She is a great big sister to Alaina and loves to be with her as much as she can.
Alaina is our second precious gift! She was a little bit of a surprise. She is outgoing, adventurous and a bundle of joy. She is our learn by experience child and keeps us on our toes. Alaina loves to be helpful and to play with Brené. Her favorite activities are playing with play-do, swinging on the swings, playing with chalk, and reading books.

We own a cute ranch in the country with woods in the back and farm fields in the front. It even has a play house and a creek in the back yard to play in. The girls love playing and helping us work outside. We have a cat named Rorie. Heidi and Rorie love to cuddle at night. Sierra is a lab husky mix we adopted from a shelter in February 2016. Sierra is a loving, playful dog who loves our girls and anyone who can throw a ball.
