Thank You for taking the time to read our profile. We realize this is a difficult decision for you and thank you for having an open mind towards adoption. It takes an incredible amount of courage and love to want what is best for your child and we feel privileged to be considered. We have so much love to give and hope that you will allow us the opportunity to share that love with your child.
We try our best to try new things, and immerse ourselves in different cultures as much as possible. We as a family know the importance of being well rounded and find joy in trying and learning new things.
We also feel our community fosters a diverse culture and will nurture a child of any racial or cultural background. Our family will work to embed cultural traditions that will make the child feel a part of their heritage.
We enjoy being active, fitness and sports. We are involved in a Crossfit community where we work out together. We also really enjoy running together. We support our children's physical well being and are committed to their good health and are supportive to the activities they want to pursue.
We both made a commitment to continuing our education and completed advanced degrees in business and health care studies. We are both extremely committed to providing all of our children the most opportunities for them to succeed in their studies and achieve their educational goals.Traditions
*Birthdays are a big deal! *The tooth fairy is REAL! *Thanksgiving means no one goes HUNGRY!*Christmas - Oh My! where do we start! Lets just say that we finally had to break it to Connor & Caleb when they were 10 & 11 that Santa wasn't real (We're that good!).
Traditions are so important, We hope that all of our children will go on to continue some of these and add new traditions to their families. Traditions are what make us live on even after we are gone.

What made you become a Nurse?I have always found great joy in caring for others. I feel that I am a very empathetic person, so it makes it easy to feel what others are going through and lend a hand and help them through a difficult scary time.

When Ryan and I met it didn't take me long to realize that he was my other half. We are so perfectly matched that I still sometimes pinch myself. He is a true provider, he is supportive and caring. He sees all the best in me and always seems to have the right words in the exact moment I need them (usually making me laugh or giving me great work advice). He pushes me to better myself and keep my head high. Ryan is committed to his home life and career, balancing them both perfectly. Taking pride in all of his endeavors. He is the perfect balance of intelligence, whit and confidence.Ryan has taken the boys in as his own and has supported and loved them from the beginning. He has a way with them, teaching them life lessons without coming off too strict. He also knows when it is time to let loose and have fun and let them be kids, he usually is right along with them . He is going to be the best father to our future child. He has an insurmountable amount of love for this child already. It will be his life purpose to give this child all the tools they need to be loved and successful.

Brandy is the most caring, selfless, compassionate person. From the moment I laid eyes on her, I knew she was the woman who would complete me for the rest of my life. Brandy's values and character make her the very best at everything she does. She is the perfect nurse because she displays compassion and genuine care for every patient she sees. Brandy is the perfect wife because she is understanding, loving, genuine and sees the best qualities in me. Brandy is the perfect mom because she cares for our children with all her heart. She is wise beyond her years, patient and loving. Brandy will make the perfect mother for our expectant child because of the true love she shares for our family and the enormous heart she has. She is as funny as she is beautiful and I can't wait to add a special little person to our family and share our love for them with her!!!
