We have a strong desire to add to our family because we want to watch a child grow and share in their life experiences. We care about raising a good human and instilling beliefs that everyone is perfectly imperfect and to value those differences. In addition, we believe in treating people with kindness and displaying empathy for others. These beliefs will be the anchors of how we parent your child with unconditional love. Thank you for considering us as part of your adoption plan.
We met on a study abroad trip in 2006 and have been best friends and inseparable ever since! We are close to our friends and family and enjoy celebrating important events and making memories with them. Living near Cleveland has given us opportunities to explore the city. We have enjoyed Broadway shows at the Playhouse, local restaurants in the city, the beach at Edgewater, and experimenting at the Science Center. In addition, we share a mutual passion for traveling. We love exploring new places whether it’s internationally to Italy, Greece, or France; or domestically to New York City, Denver, New Orleans, and many others.

About our Home/Pets
We are fortunate enough to live in a kid-friendly neighborhood that has a convenient location to nearby scenic parks, walking paths, and beaches. We enjoy taking walks with our dog and taking advantage of seasonal activities, such as cross-country skiing, apple picking, ordering milkshakes at the county fair, and beach fun. We have a ten-year-old, 4.5-pound Peek-a-Poo named Peach. She is the star of our family as she greets everyone as a friend when they come to visit.
