Hello, we are Brian and Tara! Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. First of all, let us say we admire your strength and selflessness as you navigate your adoption journey. We believe the adoption process can be summed up by one word, love.
Our story began in the spring of 2017 when we met for our first date, dinner and a walk through a nearby park. Sparks flew and after that our love for each other grew rapidly. We celebrated one of the best days of our lives when we were married in the summer of 2018. From the very beginning, there was never any doubt that we wanted to share our love by becoming parents.
After a few years of trying and a traumatic loss, we have decided to share our love by choosing adoption. The thought of parenting a child brings joy to our hearts and a big smile to our faces. We cannot wait to discover and support whatever passions a child has and become their biggest advocates and cheerleaders. We plan to share our love with a child through endless cuddling, birthday celebrations, family storytime, bike rides, trips to the park, and vacations, among many other things. We are humbled you are here, reading about our dreams.
Should you choose us as adoptive parents, we want you to know that there will always be a place for you in our family in whatever form you are comfortable with.
I’m so lucky to have Tara as my wife! I know without a doubt that she will be an outstanding, loving, and caring mother. She loves being around nieces, nephews, and friends’ kids, often being the first one to play with them, whether it’s a game ofpeek-a-boo or letting them “teach her” abouttheir toys. She has a magical way of cheering them up if they seem down.
Tara’s big nurturing heart shows through her willingness to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. In addition to being there for family and friends, she spends time assisting the community through volunteer opportunities such as providing medical care at a homeless shelter. Tara’s loving and caring qualities channel into her career as a Registered Nurse. She has received multiple awards based on patients’ comments on their excellent care. She enjoys making them birthday cards and listening to their stories. She is always willing to go the extra mile to meet the needs of others, just as Iknow she will for a son or daughter.
I love how Tara puts 100% into everything she does to exceed her goals. This year she has learned to use a lawnmower, used many power tools during home improvement projects, ridden her bike many miles, and cross country skied throughout the winter. Her unending friendship, love, and steadfast support has made me a better person. I can’t wait to see her support and love a child and learn about their interests with them.
Fun Fact: Tara is a huge fan of petting farms!
I was blessed when Brian came into my life! Brian is a kind, adaptable and sincere guy that will be an amazing dad to a future son or daughter. Brian is the most thoughtful guy that I have ever known. For example, we were planning to make an apple pie to bring when visiting relatives, and he thought to make the neighbors one too!
In life, it’s usually the little things that matter the most and Brian truly understands this sentiment; he makes my breakfast every morning before I go to work! Always going above and beyond in his work as a mechanical engineer, Brian earns over 100% during his company’s reviews. He is very handy and was the one to design and build the raised vegetable garden we created this year. He also figured out materials and constructed a beautiful fitness room. He is looking forward to using his skills to create incredible spaces for a child to provide comfort, safety and growth.
Brian is an active guy. He enjoys running and biking and doing other activities with me. Brian loves kids! It warms my heart seeing him play with nieces, nephews and our friends' kids. He is always up for activities like playing with toy trucks, watching Coco Melon, pushing on stroller rides and playing with kinetic sand.
Fun Fact: Brian’s favorite drink is apple cider!
