How We Met: We were in high school accounting class together, but due to the fact that Buzz was too shy to talk to girls back then, we didn’t talk much until college! We lived in the same dorm and they hosted a dorm hike that we both joined. At the top of the hike, Buzz grabbed a big, heavy rock slab and said he was going to carry it the whole way back to the dorm, and he did! Becca was drawn to his determination and adventurous spirit, and the rest is history! Buzz asked Becca to be his girlfriend a month later and have been adventuring together ever since! Buzz proposed to Becca at the same place he picked up that rock, 4 years later!

Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other: Buzz has the kindest heart of anyone I know. He’s fun to be around, always makes me laugh, is goofy, creative, easy-going, and the most patient person I know. I love that he tells me how much he loves me every day. Buzz lives by the mantra of “don’t sweat the small stuff” and I love that he has taught me to slow down and appreciate the things that are truly important in life. There are too many things I love about Becca to mention. Becca is so much fun to be around. It doesn’t matter what we are doing, just being around her is so fun. She is incredibly kind, caring, and supportive. There has not been a day since we have been together that she hasn’t made me smile. She also has an amazing ability to pick me up when I’m down and find some silly way to make me laugh. Another thing I really love about her is that she always puts our marriage first and truly values my feelings.

Our Hobbies and Interests: We are a very active family. We love playing sports, traveling, and getting outside with our dogs. We are very close with our parents, siblings, and nephews who live nearby, so we get together with our families a lot. We enjoy playing football and tennis together. Becca loves running/hiking and Buzz loves nature photography, so we combine our passions by going on trips to beautiful parks. Becca is super excited to be able to carry our child in a hiking carrier so we can share our adventures with them. We also enjoy game nights, playing piano, and watching movies together while we snuggle our dogs, Rudy and Dexter.

Why We Want to Adopt: Back in college when we were dating, we discovered that we both had always been drawn to adoption to grow our family. Adoption has touched our lives through both family and friends. Through these experiences, our hearts have been open to adoption and we’ve dreamed about growing our family through adoption. Our hearts are so full of love and we are looking forward to providing a home full of love and laughter to a child. We love the life we’ve built together and are really looking forward to sharing our love with a child. We’ve dreamed about adoption for a long time and are excited for the opportunity to show a child love, kindness, and faithfulness.
