About Us/Me

Hello! Welcome to our page. We (Kris and Brian) are so excited to tell you a little bit about ourselves as a family and as individuals.

Brian grew up in the suburb of Worthington, just outside of Columbus. He has two younger brothers, Matt and Aaron, who are both engaged to be married. Brian's father just retired and his mother still works in a clinical laboratory where she does cancer research. Brian's parents are so excited to be grandparents. After high school, Brian went to The Ohio State University where he studied Accounting. Today, Brian has a fulfilling career working in government where he manages grant funding to support services to victims of crime. This work is a constant reminder to Brian that life's challenges may be complicated, but that with support we can all see happiness in our lives.

Kris is from northeast Ohio, and the second-youngest of seven kids in a blended family. After high school, Kris studied Communications at Thiel College in Pennsylvania. Despite being spread out across the country, he and his siblings all come together for an annual charity motorcycle run in their late stepmother's name. While not working on homemade ice cream recipes, Kris is the Director of Operations of a large staffing company that helps people find employment. He takes pride in his job and in helping people get to work.

We met in March 2014 on a popular dating app. After a short while of chatting, we had our first date at a pizza shop in Columbus, Ohio. Since that night, we've been inseparable. We have shared loves for cooking, traveling, music, playing board and video games, and laughter. The common themes through our relationship have been built on family, friendship, and a sense of humor. We work every day to fill our home with laughter and joy. We also have two cats, Sara and Mittens, who are ready to big sisters. 

We have both always wanted to be parents, and we look forward to this big adventure. We truly thank you for considering us.

 

About You

As you make choices to prepare for the future of your child, it must be overwhelming and emotional. Your decision to pursue adoption and allow us to build a family in a different configuration is brave and courageous.

While you think about the family you want to see for your child, we want to share our commitments to you. We will put our child's safety and happiness first. We will support and honor the level of openness and involvement you want to see. We will raise our child in a nurturing environment supported by the love of friends and family. 

We believe that family is more than people who share genetics. Family is about making a choice to love and support another person without condition. Family is about overcoming challenges and being there for the people you love. Family means nobody gets left behind. 

Thank you for considering being a part of our family.
