Hi There!

Thanks for taking the time to get to know us!  Here’s a little bit about our back story. We have been married since 2012 and have been best friends since we were sixteen years old [just your classic working as baggers at a grocery store love story].  We love each other and our life together.  One of the best things about our marriage is that we love to have FUN!  We might be biased but we’ve got some great humor and laughs around here.  [Plus, Brooke secretly thinks she’s a combo of Katniss and Wonder Woman so that keeps things lively!]

We are excited about the possibility of adoption.  As we struggled to have a child biologically, our hearts turned more and more towards adoption.  It’s been so cool to see that as one door closed, another amazing door, adoption, has opened.  Some of our family and friends have adopted or placed a child for adoption.  We have been blessed by their positive, loving examples and knew that adoption was the next step for us!

Our family is extrovert [Brooke] meets introvert [Brandon] blended with sarcasm, inside jokes, love, and microwavable food.  Oh. And two pet bunnies that are really good at giving a snuggle when you’ve had a bad day.  Brandon is a rock and roll guru and can often be caught jamming out to oldies rock.  Brooke is little by little turning into Joanna Gaines and especially loves the demolition phase of remodeling.

In our day to day lives Brandon can be found working in a science lab trying to find cures for diseases. [He really is THAT cool!].   Brooke is currently molding young teenage minds and pretending she’s still hip by using words like “lit” and “fleek” in the classroom.  [She enjoys the laugh groans she gets from her students when she uses those].  When work is done Brooke lightning speed changes into a t-shirt and sweats and Brandon likes to grab a snack while he listens to some music.  After some homework and chores [and if we’re super motivated, a run] we usually end the day by watching a Jazz game, going for a walk around the block [unless it’s cold, not gonna happen!], or hanging out with our family nearby.  We can’t wait to add a little one to our adventures!

We want you to know that we will love, provide, and care for your baby.  They will grow up in a place knowing that they are loved by God, us, their siblings, extended family, and their birth family.  We hope to teach them to work hard, have fun, do their best, and help others.  Whatever life brings, we will be there for them.

We are here to support you now and in the future in any way we can.  We would love to learn more about you, your hopes and dreams, and your family.  We truly believe that love makes a family and that will always include you.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.

We hope we can meet you soon!

Love,

Brooke & Brandon

[Go Jazz!]
