Thank you for taking the time to learn about our family. We want you to know that we admire you for choosing an adoption plan for your baby. It takes a lot of trust and faith to let others care for a child you’ve brought into this world. It’s a difficult and personal decision and we can never really now how you feel.
We are Rochelle and Austin and we’re excited about the possibility of becoming parents this year. We met 8 1/2 years ago on The Ohio State University campus after an OSU football game. We were married 9 months ago here in Columbus surrounded by our friends and family. We were best friends for several years after meeting and about 4 years ago decided that we were more than just friends! We are both so ready for the next chapter in our lives and cannot wait to be parents. We are both huge sports fans and enjoy going to swimming meets, football, basketball, hockey, soccer and lacrosse games. Both of us were involved in team sports growing up and learned so much from our experience. We also love music and attending concerts. Rochelle also plays the piano and played for her Church Sunday school and her Junior High and High School Choir when growing up. She also sang in the choir during her school years. We also love to travel as well as spend time with friends and family. Our dog Gabby is a big part of our life and we enjoy taking her with us on trips as well as on our daily long walks. Austin's family is from the Boston, MA and New Hampshire area. We also enjoy spending time with his family at their winter home in Charleston, SC. Walking on the beach and taking in the sun is another one of our favorite pastimes! Austin was a camp counselor after he graduated High School and is wonderful with children. Austin came to Ohio via college. He has a Bachelors degree in Political Science from Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, Ohio. He currently works in catering and volunteers. Rochelle was born and raised in Ohio and came to Columbus to go to The Ohio State University right out of High School. Rochelle was raised in a small town and her family were primarily farmers, bankers, and factory workers. Rochelle obtained her BSN from The Ohio State University in Nursing and currently works for OSU as a Nurse in a highly specialized area. We attend our Church regularly and have a stong belief and faith in God and will share that with your child. We are very active people and love to be around friends and family a lot. We have such a huge support system and have had nothing but positive comments about our decision to adopt! All of our parents cannot wait to welcome a grandchild into the family! We also just received news that Austin's sister is expecting so our new one would have a cousin the same age to grow up with!
