Hello from Florida! We were led to adoption after going through infertility and are excited about growing our family this way! Time together as a family and caring for those we love are the most important things to us as parents. We love Disney and attending our son’s sporting events. Supporting our children in their dreams and interests will always be a priority for us. Brandy is a stay-at-home mom and Bryan has a great job that provides well and gives us lots of time together. We hope to get to know more about you and the life you want for your child.
We met where Bryan was working and exchanged phone numbers. Now we’ve been married 10 years! We have one son and have loved raising a family together. Our family believes it’s important to always try your best and not give up when you make mistakes. We value being caring, compassionate, friendly, and true to yourself. As parents we want to do all we can to model these things for our children.
Top 2 things we enjoy as a couple:
• Date night dinner and a movie
• Playing video games like trivia, Life, Mario, and Monopoly
Bryan says: Brandy is loving, kind-hearted, and caring. She is a dedicated mother and wife. From Bryce’s schooling to sports, Brandy always shows up and is willing to help. She puts us first and has mastered the art of balancing everyday life and still find time to be my best friend.
• Creative projects around the house
• Going to the water park
• Visiting the aquarium, zoo, and arcades
Brandy says: Bryan is understanding, hard working, and is always there for us when we need him. He believes in open communication and sharing our feelings. Bryan goes out of his way to do things for us (like riding the fast rides at theme parks with our son, even though it’s not really his thing!). He’s a great father who loves to be involved.
• Watching football & baseball
• Football and baseball video games
• Card and board games
• Coaching our son’s baseball team
• Playing ball with Bryce in the yard
Our Son: Bryce is 9 years old, energetic, fun, and loves to make people laugh. He enjoys all sports, but especially playing football and baseball. Bryce loves to help take care of and teach his younger cousins and will be a loving older brother. He’s excited about having a sibling!
Our Loved Ones: We both come from large families who live locally, as well as in Texas and Georgia. Between us we have 20 nieces and nephews! Just about every weekend we get together with friends, who are like family to us, for cookouts and fun activities. We love time with our loved ones!
Our Home in Florida
We live near the coast in the Florida Panhandle near beautiful beaches and fun tourist attractions. We love where we live! Our 3-bedroom home is right on the bay and the only house on our street. We’re tucked back in our own little space, with a wooden playset and a tree swing in a spacious yard with plenty of space to run. From inside or outside we can see the water and watch the fish, birds, and dolphins. Our community is very involved in youth sports and there’s always a festival or fun-day happening at the sports fields, downtown, or local churches.
We will give all we have to be the parents your child needs, and more. We promise to provide the values, education, and support for your child to succeed as a strong, healthy person. As parents we will share our belief in God, faith, and love for family.
If you want to stay in contact with us, we would love to share annual get-togethers and updates with you. We believe open adoption can allow a child to know how we all came together, out of love, and to have answers to questions about their story. You will always hold a special place in our hearts and family.
We’d love to talk or answer any of your questions. Please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.
With love, Bryan & Brandy
