Brian & Vanessa
Why we want to be parents:
Becoming parents has been one of the most rewarding jobs we have ever had. We feel so fulfilled to be able to watch our children grow and be the positive influence in their lives to accomplish great things. We believe the #1 job as a parent is to help your child be their own good in the world- whatever that may be! Growing our family through adoption has always been a dream of ours and we are so excited to be on this journey.
What activities we look forward to doing with a child:
Spending lots of time outdoors exploring nature, family time up north and visiting grandparents out of state in the warmer weather. It is so amazing to spend the time watching their curiosity run wild and showing them new things!
The people/pets who make up our family:
Brian, Vanessa, Skylar (our daughter who is 2) and baby girl will be here in September (name TBD). We also have a dog and 2 cats. Either ducks or chickens will become family members very soon- we have not decided which one yet!
Our ethnic/cultural background:
Brian is Irish and Polish; Vanessa is Polish and Italian.
Family celebrations that are important to us:
Family Christmas is so much fun as we have a large family to celebrate with. It is magical!
Fun activities we like to do:
Riding in our jeep through the mud, hiking, visiting the zoo and aquarium, spending time roaming in our yard as a family after dinner- and having ice cream!
Where we live (city, rural, community):
A small, rural community filled with great people.
A few fun facts about each of us:
Brian is a master of many skills- such as carpentry, fixing cars, and any home DIY project. This is aside from his full-time job!
Vanessa left a 16-year career to be home with the kids. She now is building her own business very part time with a goal of turning it into a full-time career when the time is right!
One thing we would like the birth family to know about us/why we would be good parents:
We strongly believe that for our children to be loved, acknowledged, and fulfilled that our presence is most important. We have so much fun and carry high integrity and moral compasses. Our goal is to raise good, kind people that follow their dreams- but also help others achieve theirs! We want for our children to be positive influences in others lives and the world.
