Thank you for taking the time to review our profile. We can’t even begin to imagine what you must be going through or what circumstances may have brought you here. What we do know is that you very much love the child that you are carrying and that you want what is best for them. We admire your strength and courage during what must be a very emotionally difficult time for you.
My wife and I have ourselves gone through a rather emotionally difficult journey that led us to the decision to adopt. After years of trying to get pregnant and 3 miscarriages, we felt God was leading us on a different path to grow our family. I have 2 cousins who are adopted from birth, one who is of a different race, and both our loved just as much as anyone else in the family. We are excited to welcome a baby into our home, and already feel love towards them.
Summer and I have been married 9 years and live in a suburb of Northern Kentucky. We live in a newer bi-level home in a quiet neighborhood that is far enough away from the city to see lots of stars at night, but close enough to still get to the grocery store or local mall pretty quickly. There are lots of families with children in our neighborhood and the church we attend is just a few miles down the road. We own a dog named Myles, he is a cute, red haired beagle-terrier mix that loves to play and keeps us busy.
Summer and I love spending time together, whether it is going to a movie together, walking in the local parks around our home, running errands, or going to the mall. However, it has been a great desire of ours to have children to share some of those memories with. All of our close friends have at least a few children of their own that we have been honored to be called Aunt and Uncle by, and the child we adopt would have lots of friends to hang out with. We both work about 10 minutes from our home. Summer works as an Assistant Manager at a nearby hotel and I work for a bank as an Online Support Manager.
We love spending time with our family and friends, and have a great relationship with both sets of parents who live in the area. It is our hope to maintain an open relationship with you, but we will honor your wishes, no matter what that may look like. Whether that is hanging out with us and the child, talking on the phone, sending photos or letters, or no contact at all. We want you to be comfortable with the level of contact that we have with you.
Since this journey began, we have been praying for you and your child. We continue to pray for you as you make this very difficult decision. Whether you chose us or not, we pray that God will continue to guide your path. Please know that we care about you and your child and are here for you.

Interest and Hobbies: We love spending time together, either outside at the park, walking in the mall, or going on dates. We also love hanging out with family and friends. Brian loves outdoor photography, reading, basketball, and occasionally playing video games. Summer loves to read and to make meals for her family and friends.
Home: We live in a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, bi-level home that sits in a very quiet neighborhood but close enough to the city. We have a big back yard that we plan to fence in within the next couple years along with adding a deck and patio. Our neighborhood has a lot of young couples with children that would be growing up with our child.
Pets: Myles was adopted in 2013 and is a Red Haired Beagle Terrier Mix. He is very energetic and loving.
Finances: We are financially stable, live within our means, and save for the future.
Why are you interested in building a family though adoption: The number one question we were asked after we got married was “when are you going to start having children”. Our response then and now is “in God’s timing”. After several miscarriages and years of infertility treatments we continued to pray for our child and God laid it on our hearts that adoption was the way He intended us to grow our family.
Openness to Birth parents: We look forward to building a friendship relationship with you and your family, if that is what you are wanting. That could include visiting or skyping you on a regular basis, sending pictures, letters or phone calls. We believe that it is in the best interest of the child and all involved to maintain a healthy and loving relationship with you. However, we are also committed to maintaining the level of openness that you are most comfortable with.
Childcare Plans: Brian’s mom works from home and Summer’s mom is retired. They are excited to be able to watch the child while we go to work, along with using a day care or babysitter on days they are not able to watch them.
