names are Ryan and Kate. We met 10 years
ago while Ryan was working as a bartender and Kate was out to dinner with a
girlfriend. We were engaged 6 months
after meeting, married a year and a half after our engagement was set, and have
been on the most amazing journey of our lives as best friends and sweethearts.
have always loved children. Before
marriage Ryan was a youth soccer coach and spent time volunteering in his mom’s
elementary classroom. Kate was a nanny
during the summer months while also volunteering her time in the classroom.
spent the first year of our marriage living with Kate’s parents while Ryan
built our first home. During that first
year of marriage we shared many memories and often dreamt about the children we
would have together someday. That joy
and excitement for children turned to a deep sorrow a few years later as we
traveled a long journey of infertility.
No matter what we tried we were unable to get pregnant. Out of the despair of incredible failures over
the years came some of the greatest lessons we have learned. Lessons about compassion and empathy for the
hardships people face, about keeping a strong marriage even in challenging
times, about having a strong faith in God, and a belief that things will work
out exactly as they are supposed to, and about the gift of adoption and what a
miracle life is.
we are a little family that is looking to grow.
We are a Christian family that enjoys spending time together, with our 2
dogs, and enjoys being surrounded by family and friends sharing stories and
playing games. We have a deep love for
the outdoors and enjoy all the adventures life brings. We joyfully await the blessing of a new baby!
In this profile we hope to begin to show you who we are and provide you with a
sense of the loving, secure, and happy family that we can provide for your
