Our Leisure Time

Loving the Beauty of Nature

During a typical week we look forward to relaxing with each other in the evenings and on weekends. The two of us love to cook dinners, work on home improvement projects, exercise, listen to music, walk our dog Cosette, and explore new restaurants. We are also very social and like to entertain at our home. Our friends and family come over almost every summer weekend to enjoy boating and water sports. In the cooler months our friends and family take turns hosting get-togethers at our homes where the kids play and adults socialize. We regularly attend a non-denominational Christian church and meet with a Bible study weekly. Our favorite vacation pastime is traveling domestically and internationally. We’ve recently been to Colorado for hiking, Delaware for a family beach week, and Florida to visit Brandon’s grandparents. Together we have backpacked through Europe and hiked to hilltribe villages in Thailand. It is our dream to share all of our fun activities we experience with a child and give them the opportunity to explore the beauty of nature and cultures of the world.

Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other

Being Silly With Our Niece & Nephew

Brandt About Brandon: God has surely blessed my life with this wonderful man. Brandon balances me out ... he is outgoing, patient, easygoing and naturally optimistic and kind. Always up for fun activity, Brandon makes everyone feel included and valued. Brandon has always wanted children and to be a father. He is first in a group to play with the little ones in our life (nieces, nephews, neighbors, and our friend's kids). He loves with his whole heart and dreams of sharing his love with a growing family.

Brandon About Brandt: Brandt has a quiet strength and determination that is unlike anyone I have ever met. She is quiet with strangers but adventurous and hilariously witty with friends and family. She is an excellent pianist but gets nervous to play in front of anyone. She is a ferocious reader and took organic chemistry in college because it was fun. She likes dogs and children, avoids attention and is a loyal and loving friend, daughter, sister, godmother and spouse. I cannot help but feel overwhelming love and pride each time I look at her.

Why We Chose Adoption

Our Family

Like many couples seeking adoption to build their families we have struggled with a long battle of infertility. Our infertility story has been extremely difficult at times, but it has also strengthened our relationship in many ways. We have had the opportunity to deeply consider the reality of what it means for us to be parents and raise a child. Throughout our journey we have discussed the possibility of adoption. We may not be able to have biological children, but that does not change our desire to be devoted parents and give a child the unconditional love and blessings that we share. It is truly a gift to be prospective adoptive parents. When we imagine bringing a new child into our house we are filled with joy and anticipation.

Our House and Neighborhood

Our Home

We love our home and life on the bay. We are blessed to have a four-bedroom home with a walk out lower level that leads to our backyard, pier, and boat for exploration and fun on the water. The kitchen is the heart of the house but the lower level is the kid’s play center. When the weather is nice we are usually out on the boat or getting some exercise kayaking or running at the nearby park. Brandon hopes to help coach a sport or two at the park a short bike ride away. We can't wait to share the experience of fishing, navigation, tubing, waterskiing and swimming with our children. We also plan to take advantage of the major cities within a short drive with museums, zoos, festivals, sporting events, and theater. A nearby major airport is really convenient for Brandon’s work travel and family trips.

Spring in Our Back Yard

We love our home on the water but the number one reason we would never want to leave is our awesome neighborhood and neighbors. Our neighborhood has a marina, ball field, basketball and tennis courts, children's playground, clubhouse and swimming pool. Children love the yearly neighborhood activities including a fall festival, field day, and Santa's breakfast. There are children of all ages running and biking around every day on their way to a friend's house, playground, or pool. A child in our home will have a multitude of friends in the neighborhood that we will see on a regular basis.

Our Extended Families

Brandt's Family

Family is very important to us and a major reason we choose to live where we do. We are within several hours drive of nearly all of our extended family - parents, grandparents, siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews. We both are the oldest of three siblings and enjoy hosting family visits whether for a Thanksgiving feast, Fourth of July by the water, or a cozy winter weekend. We are blessed that our parents are all active and retired and love being involved in their grandchildren and children's lives. Brandon’s mother currently watches our niece and nephew part time. Brandon’s parents, known as "Meims" and "Scooter" to the grandchildren, make every effort to visit us regularly and look forward to spoiling our child with love and fun. Brandt’s mother lives by the ocean. Brandt’s entire family looks forward to gathering at her house, eating “Nana’s” home cooked meals, playing nightly board games, and making discoveries in the sand. In addition to our parents support in raising a child, our sisters and brothers will be a huge assistance as they are also raising young children. Our child will have close relationships with their cousins and unconditional love of aunts and uncles. Our family has always supported us through life’s challenges and celebrations. They couldn’t be more excited to be a part of our adoption plan and welcome a child into our family!

Brandon's Family

From Us to You

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to introduce ourselves. We are Brandon and Brandt and our so grateful that through the love you have for your child you are considering an adoption plan. It is a courageous and selfless decision and we are honored and humbled to be considered as a family for your child.

From the beginning of our relationship we desired to have children. As we began our journey to grow our family it became evident that the process would not be easy. Although we struggled to have biological children, our discussions to grow our family always included the possibility of adoption. We are overjoyed to realize our dream of becoming a potential adoptive family for your child.

We met in college and have been married for ten years. We consider ourselves truly blessed to have each other and our love grows stronger every day. Our relationship is built on Christian values and we plan on raising our child with similar beliefs. The two of us highly value quality time together, relationships with family and friends, education, and a curiosity for adventure. Our families are very close knit, loving, and supportive of our goals and decisions. They are enthusiastically committed to our journey to grow our family through adoption. Your child will be joyously welcomed into our extended family with much celebration.

When we think about our adoption plan our hearts fill with excitement, humility, and ultimately love for your child. We consider being parents one of the greatest gifts we could ever receive as a couple. We can only imagine how wonderful it will be to share life’s daily enjoyments with a child including trying new foods, reading colorful books, making new friends, learning to swim, playing in the snow, and cuddling on the couch.

We plan to introduce the child’s adoption story with them at a very young age. For us, we think that a child’s adoption story is an important piece of their background. We will choose to always speak of the child’s adoption in a positive light and encourage the child to think of their story with pride. We want the child to always be reminded that their birthmother chose to make an adoption plan out of selfless love and that her feelings of love for the child are lifelong. The child will always be told that they are treasured and a gift to both their birthmother and us as adoptive parents. We will want to encourage the child to have honest and open conversations about their adoption so that they will have a firm understanding of themselves as a person.

We cannot understand all the emotions you are feeling now or will in the future but can say that you are and will ALWAYS be the birthmother and significant to our family. We will always speak of you with respect and admiration. We promise to send you regular letters, pictures, and keepsakes of your child. We welcome your continued involvement with your child and when the time is right we are open to making arrangements for visits. We sincerely commit to be a family for your child that will be filled with unconditional love, time and attention, a safe and stable home, and abundant joy.

With Love and Respect,

Brandon & Brandt
