Bryce & Angel
Hello and thank you for reading our profile. We are so excited to be on this journey of adopting again and growing our family. Our home is full of laughter and love and we want to share that with another child. We hope you will consider us in this process and make our dreams of growing our family come true.
Adoption in Our Lives
Adoption allowed us to start our family. We struggled with infertility for three years before we began our adoption journey. Waiting to become parents seemed like the hardest thing we would ever endure but it was worth every single day we waited. We know that our son was meant to come into our lives and are eternally grateful to his birth mom for selecting us to be his parents.
No one can understand the love that is involved in an adoption story unless they have been part of the journey. We know that our son's birth mother had to make the hardest decision of her life based out of love for her children and unborn child. We chose adoption because we knew we had so much love for each other and wanted to share that love with a child. The day our son was born, two families came together only wanting the best for him. He was welcomed into the world surrounded by the purest love from not only us, but from the birth mom too. We can't wait until our son is old enough to fully understand the beautiful journey that brought him into our lives.
We know that we will love and cherish any child that we are lucky enough to parent. We know that adoption is how we are meant to complete our family and look forward to being a part of another child's adoption story.
Our lifestyle is pretty simple. We enjoy staying active, laughing, and spending time together as a family. Bryce works Monday-Friday and Angel stays home with our son, Rivers. While Bryce works, Angel and Rivers will spend the day either going to a local park, tumble gym, or children's play space. When the weather is nice, Angel and Rivers spends as much time as possible outdoors. We have a neighborhood pool and park we visit often in the summer. Each night we sit down together to enjoy dinner as a family. Saturday is "family day" so we take our dog on a walk with us to our neighborhood park where we can all run and play together. We then spend the rest of the day together as a family. Sundays we have a low key day at home. As our children grow, we hope our activities will include sports, dance lessons, music lessons, or anything else our children show interest in doing.
Although we do look forward to yearly family vacations, it is the little things in life that bring us the most joy. We look forward to bi-monthly date nights together or taking our son to get ice cream. Playing at the park as a family or listening to our son's laughter is what makes our lives complete. We hope as we raise our children, they are able to find joy in life's simple pleasures too and always have fond memories of the everyday things we do as a family.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Angel About Bryce: Bryce is an amazing husband and father. I knew he would make a great life partner soon after meeting him. He is a very loyal person and loves with his whole heart. His highest priority in life is his family and all of his decisions are based on what will be best for us. Bryce has always been my biggest "cheerleader" and was my rock as we struggled to build our family. He has this extremely fun side and is a big kid at heart. Watching Bryce play with our son brings me such joy because he keeps our son laughing and smiling the entire time. I can't image my life without him and l am so lucky that he is my husband and father to our son.
Bryce About Angel: Angel is the sweetest, most caring person I have ever met. She is a great wife and an amazing mother. Angel always puts family first and often plans fun activities for us all to spend time together as a family. I am so amazed by her every day and it brings me so much happiness watching her and our son together. Our son is such a happy little guy because he has such a great mom. I am so lucky to have found Angel, she is my best friend and such a great mother to our son.
Our House and Neighborhood
Our home is located in a very family-oriented community. We have a large community pool and park located in our subdivision that we visit often. Our neighborhood holds events throughout the year for families such as Friday night food trucks by the pool, ice creams socials, and cookies with Santa at Christmas. Since the neighborhood was designed for families, we know that our children will always have friends close by.
The schools in the area are always ranked top in the state and are located within a couple of miles of our home. Within our local area we have so many great parks, museums, theatres, and great restaurants.
Our home is a five-bedroom home with a bonus room and playroom so we have plenty of room to expand our family. We have a large fenced-in backyard that will give our children plenty of room to run and play. We purchased this home recently knowing we wanted to add one more child to our family.
We live about 30 minutes from our state capital. There are three major universities within 45 minutes of our home. Education is highly valued in this area and so is culture. Every weekend there is always a family-friendly festival or activity happening. We also have several state parks close by where you can hike, canoe, and go for picnics.
Our Extended Families
We both come from close-knit families. Growing up, the value of family was instilled in both of us and we remain close to our parents and siblings.
Bryce is the youngest of three siblings. We have 5 nieces and nephews on his side ranging in ages from 3 years old to late teens. Bryce's family all live in the Northeast. When we visit his family, we spend the day watching the children play, laughing, listening to music, and sharing family dinners.
Angel has one older brother and they have always been best friends. Angel's mom and brother both live in Florida. We try to visit them a couple of times a year. Angel's father lives about three hours away so we are able to see him often for family dinners.
Although we don't live close to our families, we see them often. We visit Florida and New York at least once a year and our siblings visit us. Our parents are retired so they both visit often.
Our families were so supportive as we struggled with infertility and were our biggest supporters as we started our journey towards adopting our son. Now that we are on this journey again, they are "over the moon" and look forward to meeting the newest member of our family.
From Us to You
We want to thank you for reading our profile and taking the time to get to know us better. Hopefully, by reading this you will have a little insight into who we are and what type of parents we strive to be. We can't even begin to imagine what is going through your mind as you navigate this part of your life and make a decision for your unborn child. We do know that we admire your courage and strength for exploring all options available to you.
We have always known we wanted children. We started trying to grow our family as soon as we married 6 years ago. We struggled with unexplained infertility for the first three years of our marriage and after unsuccessful fertility treatments and experiencing a few miscarriages, we decided to move forward with adopting a child. We adopted our son a little over two years ago and it was the best thing that has ever happened to us. Our son made us realize that our infertility was actually a blessing because it led us to him and will hopefully lead us to another beautiful soul.
Within the first two months of bringing our son home, we knew we wanted to have at least one more child in our family. We love being parents and watching our son grow and accomplish each milestone. His smile brightens our days and brings us so much joy. We want to experience that all again and watch a new little person grow. We look forward to seeing a new child with a completely different personality, laugh and smile. We would love to see our son have a sibling with a similar birth story (but unique in their own ways) so they can create a special bond. We want to see them learn from each other and develop a friendship to last a lifetime. We simply want to add more love and joy to our home with another child.
Our children will always experience unconditional love. We will always give our children everything they need to thrive in life. We will teach them to treat others with respect and kindness, to value education, and to value themselves. They will grow up in a home with two supporting parents that will do everything possible to teach them to navigate life with confidence and integrity. Not only will they have our love and support, but they will also have the love and support of our extended families.
Making sure our children have fond childhood memories is very important to us. We want them to remember trips to local parks, hiking, family movie nights, fun outings like skating or going to the zoo. We want them to always remember sitting down at the dinner table together and yearly family vacations. We will strive to make sure when our children think of their childhood that they will smile and remember the fun times they had with their family.
We promise that you will receive pictures and updates about your child as he/she grows up. We believe birth parents should decide the amount and type of contact they wish to have with their child and us. We are open to emails, texts, phone calls, and letters. We would also like for you to see your child within the first five years of his/her life if you desire. We want you to see that he/she will grow up with loving proud parents and a happy older brother/best friend. This child will always know the sacrifice you made for him/her and will know that you should always be respected and admired for that decision.
Again, thank you for reading our profile. We sincerely wish you peace and comfort in the coming months as you continue on this journey. Your unborn child is lucky to already be loved by so many. We will keep you in our thoughts and only wish the best for you and your child!
Bryce & Angel
