Our Lifestyle

Fun at the Lake

We strive to have a nice balance of spending time with family and friends, traveling and relaxing at our home. We both have jobs that we are passionate about, yet have the flexibility to scale back to be home more with a child.

We take 1-2 vacations a year. Usually we like to go to new places and discover new areas, however recently we have fallen in love with Scottsdale. This is a place we plan to travel to frequently. We are very excited about adding a child to our vacations!

We live in an area that allows for many types of activities. We have a neighborhood pool that we use a lot in the summer. Paige loves to invite friends and family over to spend the day at the pool with us. We live near a lake and spend a lot of time boating, fishing and swimming there. We love to play golf with Paige's grandparents, go hiking and play sports together. We are very lucky to be close with both of our families and spend many weekends having quality time with them!

Some things we do to relax together at our home is cooking, reading, playing games and going for walks. Exercise is also very important to us. Paige is very active at a local studio and enjoys yoga and TRX classes. Joe enjoys going to a local gym for his workouts.

Our Promise to You

Having the Time of Our Lives on Our Wedding Day!

Our promise to you is to love your child unconditionally every single day. We will tell them about their First Mom and how brave she was to choose adoption. We plan to raise this child with appreciation and love for you. We know you are making this hard decision out of love and wanting the best for your child. We promise that they will be raised in a loving and respectful home. They will be our first priority and above all else know they are safe and loved. We promise to create a fun atmosphere and teach them to try new things. Your child will grow up in a home that teaches them not to worry about what others think about them and to be confident in who they are and embrace their unique qualities. We live in an area with so many great education opportunities. They will receive a great education and have endless choices for extracurricular activities. We promise to support who they want to be and what they want to do as they grow older.

    Our House and Neighborhood

    Home Sweet Home

    We have a very warm, inviting home! We built our house almost two years ago with raising a child here in mind. Our house has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Our favorite part of our home is the open floor plan. We can be in different rooms and still be able to communicate and feel close. We have a huge back yard for a child to play in!

    Paige & Friends at the Pool

    The neighborhood pool is one of our favorite things about our neighborhood. There are many families with small children and the pool ends up being a gathering place for all of us every summer. We can't wait to take a child there to learn to swim and meet other kids in the neighborhood.

    There is a fun firework festival for the Fourth of July every year around the corner from us and everyone in our community gathers together for this.

    Our church has an annual Trunk or Treat for Halloween that is SO fun. The kids have a blast getting dressed up and eating candy every October.

    Our Extended Families

    Golfing With Paige's Grandparents

    We have big families and love to get together to celebrate birthdays and holidays.

    With Joe's Family

    Paige's grandma is an excellent cook. Every time we go to her house, whether it’s just us or the whole family is there, she cooks enough food for an army and it is delicious. Because Paige is an only child we are very close with her parents. They have often traveled with us on vacations. One of our favorite trips with them was to the beach in Florida. We went to the beach every day, played catch and swam. At night we would go to the local farmers market and then go back to the house and cook dinner together, with games to follow. Anytime we spend time with her family you can bet we are playing some type of game. We love to play golf with her grandparents and spend a lot of weekends with our family and friends boating, swimming and fishing at the lake near our house.

    Joe has a tight nit family that consists of a brother and sister, and two nephews. We absolutely love spending time with our nephews. Their favorite thing to do with us is go to Chuck E Cheese, ride go karts and go swimming. Joe's Uncle Jeff is someone he considers a personal hero and has been a big influence on his life. Jeff is one of the most loving, free spirited people we know. Every person in our family cannot wait to meet and love this child.

    From Us to You

    We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for reading our profile. We can only imagine how difficult this decision is for you. Please know we think you are courageous and that the decision you are considering is made from selflessness and love for your child. If you were to choose us you would be blessing us with the greatest gift! We promise to raise this child in a safe and very loving environment. It is important to us to instill traits such as confidence, independence, self-love, acceptance and kindness in a child. We can't thank you enough for thinking of us.

    We met 11 years ago. A mutual friend of ours thought we would be a perfect match and set us up on a blind date for a wedding. We both said sure, why not?! Joe invited Paige to a Cinco De Mayo party about a month before the wedding so we could get to know each other. We have been together ever since that night. Four years later we got married with all of our friends and family members next to us. We laughed and danced the night away.

    Paige is a salon owner and hair stylist. Making people feel beautiful inside and out is her passion. Her job is very flexible and she plans to scale back once we are raising a child. Joe is a business partner and finance manager. He loves his work and the flexibility it offers. He will be able to leave work early to attend extracurricular activities as the child gets older. We also have many family members that will love to spend time with the child we will raise. We are very close with both of our families and really want to instill how important family is to a child. Our families have been there for us during the hard times of trying to start our own family and we are so grateful for them.

    We are Christians by faith and believe that giving and receiving grace is of utmost importance. We strive for inclusion and acceptance. We have been praying for the birth mom that chooses us to have peace with her decision and comfort knowing that her child will be in great hands.

    After three years of trying to start our family we got pregnant. That sadly ended in pre-term labor. We were able to hold our sweet boy for an hour until he passed. The love that we felt for him in that moment and every day still was more than we could ever imagine. We are so ready to share that unconditional love with a child. We knew after pregnancy struggles that adoption would be a great path for us to take. We have talked about adoption being a part of our story since the very beginning of our dating relationship. Since deciding to pursue adoption we have felt a great sense of peace and we know that we are exactly where God wants us to be.

    We are open to any level of communication by way of emails, phone calls, or letters and photos. We will tell the child about their story from the very beginning. We are committed to keeping the relationship between you and your child strong, if that is what you choose. Thank you a million times over for even considering us and taking the time to read this!
