Hello and thank you for taking a look at our profile. Your love and strength as you make a plan for your baby is so admirable. We are Dave and Leslie, and have been together for 17 years, married for 12 of those. We do not have any children, but desire to grow our family through adoption. Having children has been something we have wanted since before we married. We are very involved in our teenage nieces and nephews lives. Our nephews play drums in the high school band, and we rarely miss a football game. Our oldest niece is a college student and the other niece performs in show choir and musicals. We adore watching them all perform and have fun. We love to travel and have adventures exploring new places. We also enjoy our time at home, snuggling, watching movies and hanging out on the deck. Family is important to us. We both have our parents nearby, who welcome more children in the family to love.
We graduated college together, Dave has a Bachelors degree and Leslie a Masters degree. We value education and will do our best to make learning fun for a child.

Our Home and Community
We live in a safe neighborhood in Northeast Ohio, in a cozy 3 bedroom home with large backyard for room to play. We are in walking distance of a park, ice cream stand, and an adorable downtown area where we like to stroll, shop locally and eat delicious food. We have 4 pets, two female kitties, Pumpkin and Jazzy, and two male dogs, Charlie and Teddy. They are good furry friends and love people and going on adventures, too.

Our promise to you is that your child will grow up in a loving, financially stable environment, and be encouraged to pursue his/her interests and talents. Our hearts, as well as everyone in our large extended family, are full of love for your baby. We promise to respect you and any level of openness that you desire with your child.

Praying for you and your child,
Dave and Leslie
