How We Met: We first met over a decade ago during a running club in the Boston area. Since we were both already in existing relationships ours began as a friendship. Luckily for us, both of those relationships ran out of steam and we began the first steps of our lifelong commitment to each other. Surprisingly, we both grew up in South Florida though we did not meet until Lindsay moved to Boston. The last few years we have enjoyed being married and deepening our relationship.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other: Brian is very intelligent, funny, and is always up for an adventure. Although he is very responsible and diligent with his work, he is also a kid at heart, sometimes silly and always eager to watch comic book movies countless times over. He loves when we have our friends’ kids over and he always makes sure that they feel included in our activities. He also goes out of his way to learn their interests. Lindsay’s smile brightens up a room and her laughter is infectious. I love how excited she gets about silly, small things. She knows how to appreciate the smaller things in life and to recognize the silver lining in almost any difficult situation. Her patience and deep sense of care for the people around her resonates in the work she does helping support customers. She truly cares and strives tirelessly for her family, friends, colleagues, and customers.
Our Hobbies and Interests: Food is central to our daily lives and we enjoy spending time planning, cooking, or eating our next meal together. We love trying new restaurants and new recipes and hosting friends for our foodie experiments. Music is always playing in our house and we love seeing our favorite bands in person. We both are also very active and enjoy biking, hiking, yoga, and taking Cody for long walks. The ideal start to our day involves walking Cody to a nearby pond and then enjoying coffee together. A perfect ending would involve a nice meal shared with friends.
Why We Want to Adopt: We have always wanted the joy of children in our house but met difficulties when we tried to start our family naturally. We spent an emotional period exploring alternatives and after hearing experiences from close friends and other adoptive parents our excitement at growing our family through adoption has only increased. We are committed to providing a loving household and stable environment for a child to grow and prosper, and to give them every opportunity for a remarkable life.
