Hi there! We’re Brian and Alexis – and Ford (5) and Etta (2). We’re a lighthearted, active, loving family who has always prayed to add to our family through adoption. We’ve been together for 14 years and happily married for 8.
We met in college, working at our student newspaper together. We became fast friends—it was so effortless to be together. Eventually we fell in love, dated long-distance for 3 years, moved, adopted a pug, got engaged, got married, bought a house, had two beautiful kids.
Brian is the kind of person who makes you want to be your best self. He always puts his family first. He’s kind, smart and extremely inclusive, always making sure everyone feels welcome. He always sees the good in everyone. He is an extremely involved father, changing diapers and tucking kids in at night. Alexis is incredible. She is so loving, kind, patient, funny and smart. She’s a total go-getter and incredibly successful. She devotes herself to making sure our kids feel loved, appreciated, noticed and accomplished.
Adoption has always been part of our plan. We’ve known for years – even before we were married – that our family would not be complete without it.
Our message to you:
Let us start by saying: thank you. You are making a selfless, courageous choice. It is clear you already love your child so much.
Should you choose us to parent, we commit to raising your child in a house overflowing with love. A mom, a dad, a big brother and a big sister – and a sweet little pug who likes to sleep on laps. Your child will have their own bedroom, in a house, on a street where he or she will play with dozens of neighborhood kids. We will throw birthday parties and plan big Christmas morning breakfasts and go on family vacations.
Should you give us the staggering privilege of raising your child, we want you to know you will always be part of the story. And you will be able to play whatever role you like.
