The Story Of Us
We both attended the same small engineering college during the same time, but our story does not start there. Of course we never met during college - that would be too easy! We met in Canada of all places during a mutual friend's wedding. It was there where we had an instant connection, and had our "You had me at Hello" moment. After several years of dating, a move to Texas for our first jobs, and the addition of two sweet adopted fur babies, we tied the knot in Steamboat Springs, Colorado summer of 2012. Fast forward five more years....we have traveled often, purchased our first home, perfected our BBQ rib recipe, and most importantly built a strong marriage.
Even before we got married, we both knew we wanted to be parents. Little did we know an infertility diagnosis would be apart of our story. However, through our infertility journey we realized God had a different plan for our family that meant growing our family through adoption. We are absolutely overjoyed to begin this next chapter, and can't wait to have new memories and moments with our little one.
Anthony was born and raised in Colorado as the middle child of a family of five. His parents still live in his childhood home where we have the opportunity to visit often. There is never a dull moment when spending time with Anthony's side of the family. His mom's side is Italian which means you never leave hungry, and your stomach always hurts from eating too much and laughing too hard. After 3 years of marriage Breanne was inducted into the family meatball and gravy society (this is a BIG deal) and was taught the coveted family recipe by Anthony's Nana. Needless to say there's no written recipe to follow nor measuring cups allowed. It's all by memory and feel, but the end result is perfection.
Growing up Anthony was an active soccer player. Not only did he excel on the field, but also academically. Starting at a young age he was recognized for his character and academic achievements by his teachers. Anthony went on to pursue his engineering degree and even obtained a masters. As a career Anthony works as a petroleum engineer. In his free time Anthony enjoys watching sports, building his library, learning how to cook, and spending time outdoors either by the bbq or pool.
ANTHONY (through Breanne's eyes): Anthony is so many things to me but most of all he is my biggest supporter, my rock, and best friend. He leads our family well and works really hard supporting us both financially and spiritually. He loves learning new things and is always up for a new adventure. Anthony brings so many qualities (patient, loving, supportive) that will make him an incredible Dad. I absolutely know he will always put his family first, as he already loves me so well.

Breanne was born in Arizona, but moved to the family farm in Nebraska at a young age. She is the youngest child of a family of five. Her parents still reside on the farm which has been in her family for 100 years! Growing up in rural Nebraska meant lots of community and school involvement. During her school years Breanne was involved in basketball, volleyball, track, drama, speech, band, choir, you name it she was active in it! Academically she always excelled (Math and Science are her jam!) and even graduated as class valedictorian.
Upon graduating high school Breanne knew she wanted to pursue an engineering degree and went on to do just that. Breanne now works as a petroleum engineer. She enjoys pinteresting dinner recipes, cuddling with her fur babies, laying out by the pool, and planning and coordinating the next family trip.
BREANNE (through Anthony's eyes): Breanne is the woman of my dreams and an incredible wife. Her heart is full of love, kindness, and joy. She has a great sense of humor and brightens everyone's day. She finds joy in doing things for others as anyone who has received a thoughtful present or one of her baking goods will tell you. Breanne's strength, compassion, and love for others are just a few reasons I know she will be a wonderful Mom.
A FEW FUN FACTS about Breanne

Things We Love
We love spending time with friends and family and cherish all the memories we've made over the years. Although miles separate us, our family visits are frequent and always fun. Holidays together are the best. We've even had the opportunity to host Christmas back to back years. And yes, we are those people who have the tree up by Thanksgiving. We have many holiday traditions especially those surrounding Christmas. It's such a special time of year to us. We can't wait to continue these traditions and make new ones with our future child.
We love traveling to new places and revisiting old favorites. One of our most cherished trips was traveling to Paris for our honeymoon. Traveling with our child is something we are looking forward to. We can't wait to see the magic in their eyes when visiting Disney for the first time or making that mountain trip where he or she will experience skiing for the first time.
One our favorite things is to simply to be together. We love spending time relaxing and catching up over a good meal. We've created countless pinterest recipes together in the kitchen. Some not as good as others, but Anthony remains a team player! One of our favorite features about our home is the pool. The pool has allowed us to look forward the Texas summer heat, as we enjoy life poolside with each other or entertaining friends and family.
We hope by finding us here you were able to get a small sense of who we are. More than anything we want you to know that we will love your child unconditionally. This baby will be loved beyond words by us, our friends, and our family. We are committed to providing the very best upbringing we possibly can. We promise to always encourage your child's hopes and dreams. He or she will be raised with a deep appreciation for you and your bravery. We want to remind him or her that you have given us the greatest gift we could imagine because of your selfless love for them. Thank you so much for considering us!
Much Love, Anthony & Breanne
