We met on Halloween, in a bar of all places.
Amidst the celebration, we struck up a conversation and both felt an instantaneous connection. We went on our first “official” date (the bar didn’t count) the very next day. Afterwards, it was clear it would be the last “first date” either of us would ever go on. Since then, we have been inseparable!
Over the years, we feel grateful to have experienced more “ups” than “downs” in life. Though difficult at first, we realize now that our struggles trying to conceive are just part of God’s plan for us starting our family. We have fully embraced the journey and feel blessed to have the opportunity to expand our family through open adoption. In our hearts, we know the best – and the ultimate “up” – is yet to come!
A few of our favorite “ups”
- Welcoming furry pets into our home (including Steph’s first dog)
- Getting married
- Spending time with those we love
