Thank you for taking the time to learn about our family, and our desire to become first-time parents! We look forward to providing a loving and compassionate home for your child, that will teach them to walk in faith, the value of family and education, and show them unconditional love. We would love to stay in touch through pictures, letters, and visits if you would like.
We met in a photography class during college while Dave was obtaining a degree in Information Systems and Maggie a degree in Biology. We dated for five years before getting married and are now married for over seven years. We enjoy taking pictures, traveling, biking, hiking, and many other activities together. Dave has a career working as a systems analyst, and Maggie has been a stay at home wife and homemaker for the last two years.
Our hope to have children was complicated by infertility. Through our pursuit to have children, we believe God has led us down the path to start a family through adoption.
About Dave, through the eyes of Maggie
Dave is a caring and sacrificial spouse. He is up early every morning heading to work to provide for us. He reminds me to lighten up, laugh, and have fun when I am being too serious. Dave has a passion for working with computers and serving others in whatever capacity is needed. He also enjoys football, and can be found watching games most Saturdays and Sundays during the fall. When I see Dave interacting with our nieces and nephews, I see a caring, fun-loving and compassionate man that will do anything for his family, even putting their needs over his own. I know these qualities will make Dave a great father.
About Maggie, through the eyes of Dave
Maggie can easily be described as sweet, loving, and compassionate. These are just some of the qualities that led me to fall in love with her. She has taught me to rely on our faith in God for all things, and she displays her faith through her willingness to serve others. Maggie enjoys spending time with friends and family, and values the impact of her family in her life. When we’re not spending time together, Maggie enjoys reading and knitting. She has always had a desire to have children of her own, and will apply all these qualities into being a caring and loving mother.
We both have grown up in Pennsylvania. Maggie it the oldest of three children, having a younger brother and sister. Dave is the youngest of two children, having an older brother. We were both born and raised in Christian homes that taught the importance of faith, and together we look forward to passing these values onto our children.
Family get-togethers are quite common among both our families, including sharing meals, vacations, birthdays, and holidays. One of our holiday traditions is to be with Maggie’s family on Christmas Eve, sharing a seafood dinner and attending an evening service at church. Both of our families look forward to creating memories and sharing love with your child as much as we will!
Our Home in Pennsylvania
We live in a three bedroom, two story home, located in a small community with room to run and grow. There are schools and playgrounds within walking distance of our neighborhood. Our home is only a few minutes from a ski resort and in the winter we often take day trips to go snowboarding, and in the summer a nearby state park allows us opportunities to go hiking.
Both of our families live nearby, and we frequently enjoy having friends and family gather at our home. We especially enjoy movie nights with popcorn and cozy blankets in our basement home theater.
Living in Pennsylvania, we are a short drive from the mountains and our family cabin or the beach, where we often enjoy family vacations. We also like to travel beyond the borders of Pennsylvania to explore other parts of the county and world.
We promise to accept, love, and cherish your child, and provide a stable home environment where they can learn and grow in mind and faith. We will laugh together, take adventures together, pray together, and be there for each other. We are open to providing updates through letters and photos and are also open to sharing yearly visits.
Thank you for considering us. We’re excited to learn more about you and answer any questions that you may have for us.

More About Our Family
Our Special Interests
We enjoy traveling when we’re able. From destinations in New England, the Adirondacks of New York, landmarks in Washington DC, and a relaxing time spent at the beach in New Jersey.
Our Christian faith is a large part of our lives. We strive to put Christ at the center of our relationship, and we are actively involved in church. We especially enjoy helping with our church's Vacation Bible School, teaching children lessons from the Bible.
Our Musical Interest
Maggie enjoys singing and listening to music. She can often be found singing around the house, in the church choir, and on the praise and worship team. Dave on the other hand mostly enjoys listening to music.
Our home is a two-story single-family home with a finished basement. The basement has a movie theater with a large screen, perfect for watching movies with family and friends while enjoying a bowl of popcorn. There are three bedrooms and multiple bathrooms, and a large cozy living area to spend time reading, playing games, and socializing. We also have a large deck where we spend time grilling and enjoying meals outdoors.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. We are looking forward to our home being filled with more laughter, bedtime stories, and prayers. We promise to always keep faith at the center of our family and to encourage your child to grow in their faith. We are open to keeping you updated through letters, photos and visits. We hope to talk to you soon!
