Adoptive Family Brian and Alli
After long contemplation about what to say to you, we have finally decided the best way to start is with complete openness. We are Brian and Alli. We as parents, husband, wife, children, siblings and friends are not perfect. We push ourselves too hard, we stay up late, we are sometimes self-critical. We are happily imperfect! We may never be perfect parents but we will ALWAYS try our best.

We have been together for 7 years and married for 5. We had our amazing son, Boden, just over 2 years ago. We LOVE being parents and cannot wait to add another child to complete our family. We will always strive to do the best we possibly can for our children. We want them to be healthy, happy and successful. We also want to be at our best so we can set a good example. We know that feeling worthy must come from within. It's from this place of worthiness that we can love our kids unconditionally and teach them that they are worthy just as they are, not because of their accomplishments. We make mistakes and our kids will make mistakes. We hope to help our kids understand that it's normal to screw up sometimes. We want to teach them to aim high, practice hard, learn from their mistakes, and to be kind and forgiving toward themselves and others.

There are some things we want you to know about each of us –

From Alli – Brian is the most amazing and patient Dad and husband. He is a quiet guy – a thinker. He loves with everything he has. He would do anything to make Boden and me smile. Boden absolutely adores his Daddy. Boden mimics everything Daddy does – he watches him so closely, soaking in everything Daddy has to teach him. I can only imagine the things they will build and create together one day. Brian is also the most creative and artistic person I know. He is incredibly talented at woodworking and woodburning. That creativity also spills over into his cooking – he can make amazing food out of anything, especially on the grill!

From Brian – Alli is a very honest, strong and passionate person. Family is always her top priority. She works hard but has always been determined to be home more days than at work. She can be a silly, wacky, fun Mom, but if needed can also be serious, stern and super-responsible. She is a proud Mommy and provides unconditional love to both Boden and me.

We want you to know your child will always have the most amazing support system well beyond our immediate family. It was incredibly touching to see and hear the responses from our family and friends when we announced our decision to adopt. The excitement and support has been overwhelming! There are so many people who are so excited to be a part of your child's life. Our families have so much love to give and fun to teach. From boat rides with Papa to horseback rides with Nana, from reading books with Grandma to tractor rides with Grandpa, from waterski lessons from aunts and uncles to swimming with cousins – the list goes on and on. There is no question, your child will always be loved to the absolute fullest!

We feel that openness and honesty are so very important. We welcome an open adoption and are willing to keep it as open as you are comfortable with. We want you to know that we are deeply dedicated to keeping a level of contact in which you desire as well as respecting your wishes regarding information shared. You will be a vital part of our lives. We want your child to know your story, as well as how we came to share such an important bond. We look forward to sharing our hopes, our fears and our dreams for the child we will both love.

We respect you deeply for caring so much about your child. We are here for you and want to be supportive in any way we possibly can. We can't wait to get to know you!
