Hello! We are a family of five excited to expand our family through adoption once more! As a family, we love playing card games, being outside, and watching movies or college football together. Our children, Bryson (age 6), Myra (age 6), and Ayden (age 5) are all so excited for our family to adopt and to have another sibling or two! We love to travel and have done so for leisure, for work, and for mission trips, and we look forward to continuing our travels in order to provide our children with the opportunity to experience the wonderfully diverse world we live in. We would be honored to partner with you and welcome your child into our family.
We have been together 11 years, and have been married 9 years. We had been discussing adoption since our second date together and it has truly been a blessing in our lives. Our daughter, Myra, is adopted and joined our family at age 2. Along the way, we were blessed with two boys biologically. We dream of our growing family and the opportunity to raise more children. We are so excited to welcome another child or sibling set! Once in a while, we will get away as a couple for an overnight trip, as we value a strong marriage to help us best work as a team and raise our children well. Some of our favorite places to visit are in the mountains or at the beach. Going on hikes and walks, enjoying God's creation, visiting new places, and refreshing our souls with quiet time and time together are among our favorite things to do. And, every once in awhile, we love a great adventure on a roller coaster or even sky diving!
The best word to discuss Colby is "fun". You will often find him playing and laughing with the kids, and creating activities and games for them. Colby is a restaurant owner and loves providing and sharing a meal with other people. In his spare time, he loves to bike and work in his shop and in the yard. He is a wonderful handyman and enjoys giving things a new life through fixing and creating. And he loves to teach our boys along the way and cheer on our daughter at her dance practices and recital. He was raised with an amazing work ethic that he passes along to our family and children every day. As our children grow, he looks forward to camping and fishing trips and future daddy-daughter dances with our daughter. Colby especially looks forward to playing and having fun with our next child, and also to raise our next child with strong morals and great character.
The best word to describe Stacey is "organizer". She is the planner of the family, manages the family schedule, plans family trips and experiences, drives the kids to and from school and activities, organizes our meals and finances. Stacey is an engineer who is currently taking time from that to raise our children and to help with our family restaurant business. She loves volunteering at our kids' school and in the community, and models for our children the importance of serving others in our community. In her spare time, Stacey enjoys running, exercising, and investing in women and families through bible studies and financial coaching, which are some of her favorite volunteer opportunities. You also might find her curled up with a good book and a cup of coffee. She loves to learn and read, and looks forward to passing those values to our children as well. Stacey loves being a mom, and enjoys creating creating memorable moments through crafts, story time, and planning activities. She cannot wait for the next child to join the family to love, cuddle, and teach responsibility and fun!
Our Home in Connecticut
We live in a quaint little town on a cul-de-sac where our children play safely in our yard and ride bikes along the street. We are a day trip to the mountains or the beach! Our home is on 1.25 acres, lined with woods, and a playground for our children to explore. We also have a large playroom inside our home, filled with toys and space for children to run around. We already have a bedroom waiting and ready to welcome your child. Our home is our family sanctuary, a place we come together as a family, share meals, play and pray together, and just spend time together. We love playing games and building puzzles together. We want our home to always be a truly safe and welcoming place for all, a place away from the world's distractions, and a place we can find peace and restoration.
We have 3 wonderful children. Our daughter, Myra, and our two boys, Bryson & Ayden. They all care for and watch out for each other and are all excited to have another sibling!
We are very family-oriented. Both sets of grandparents are active in the lives of our children, both near and far. We also have aunts, uncles, and cousins who love spending time with our children and provide additional support and fun. Our extended family is excited to welcome another child to love on, pray for, and spoil with their love, attention, and gifts.
Our Promise to You
We promise to provide a stable and loving home for your child. We believe a loving and structured home, flowing with opportunities for learning and fun, is the best environment for children to thrive. We will strive to raise your child with a strong spiritual foundation, all the while identifying, developing, and growing your child's gifts and talents, so they can become the person God has created them to be. Thank you for considering our family. We are open to sharing letters, pictures, and visits with you at your comfort level.

More About Our Family
Every year we create an annual family photo book for each child. Once each child turns 18 years old, they will receive family photo books from each year of their life. This is an important and exciting tradition of ours!
We are a Christian family who believes in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. This truth impacts every area of our life. We also believe it is important to teach a firm faith foundation to each of our children.
