Benjamin & Abby
Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile. We are blessed to be on this adoptive journey and are honored that you are taking the time to learn about us. We plan to raise our child in a loving environment that values honesty, hard work, faith, and respect. We know that the road ahead is filled with tough decisions, and we invite you to join us on this journey.
Our Favorite Vacation Spot
Our favorite vacation spot is a place you can only visit on a Disney Cruise. Disney's private island, Castaway Cay, located in the Bahamas, is our favorite place to relax, spend some time on the beach and look out at the clear blue water. We love warm weather and enjoy the beach and Castaway Cay is both of those things and more. We love to sit in the hammocks, put our toes in the water and watch the crystal blue waves crash over us as we look out into the horizon. We love Disney and love interacting with the Disney characters like Mickey and Minnie on the island while getting some much needed relaxation in! We try to visit once a year and get some much need cruising in with a bit of Disney magic. We hope to take our future child on a Disney Cruise with us and see the magic of Disney light up in their eyes!
Our Leisure Time
We both enjoy reading and are active in different book clubs. We also participate in our local church choir as we love music and singing. We love to complete escape rooms and puzzles and love the challenge they give us!
Individually, Benjamin has enjoyed going on camping trips since he was a Tiger Cub Scout all the way through becoming an Eagle Scout. Benjamin is passionate about board games and enjoys playing them with friends and family. He also runs weekly online role playing games with friends. Benjamin enjoys baking for family and friends.
Abby is a member of Zeta Tau Alpha and is President of her local sorority alumnae chapter, where she volunteers for various service projects throughout the year benefiting those in the community. Abby is extremely passionate about the performing arts and together we attend theatre and dance shows, as well as actively participate in the local arts community. Abby loves college football and watching the Georgia Bulldogs play on Saturdays in the fall.
We can't wait to share our passions and adventures with our future child!
Our Family Traditions
Our biggest traditions are gathering with our large families especially at Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. We love to celebrate all the holidays throughout the year with our family surrounded by food and laughter. Abby grew up going to a Christmas tree farm every Christmas with her family to pick out the family Christmas tree and we hope to pass on the tradition of cutting down a fresh tree. Benjamin was always the chef's assistant at all the major holidays growing up, making sure the big meals were the tastiest. We hope to have a little chef assistant to carry on that tradition! We as a family love to exchange Christmas Ornaments on Christmas Eve every year. Benjamin would watch the Twilight Zone Marathon on New Year's Eve with his brother and his father every year growing up. We love family and tradition and hope to pass our traditions onto our child!
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in quiet suburb outside of Atlanta, Georgia. We live in a townhouse and enjoy the convenience to what the Atlanta area has to offer, but it's a nice, quiet place to come home to and enjoy our family time together.
Our neighborhood is very friendly, and we see lots of young children out with their families when we walk our dog, Henry. We have several parks around us that include hiking trails, playgrounds, and rivers where you can rent kayaks and canoes. We have a neighborhood pool and tennis court that we frequent during the summer.
Our community has a local farmers market and fun annual festivals around the holidays that include holiday tree lightings, a Jewish film festival, and Easter egg hunts.
We have a beautiful church a stone's throw away from our home, and we are very active in the church community, where we sing in the choir. There are lots of children's activities with the church, as it also has a school attached to it with a fun playground. We hope to have our future child involved in the children's choir and be surrounded by this church community.
Our Extended Families
Our families are very important to us. All parents are very excited to babysit and spoil a future grandchild!
Abby is the middle child of three sisters. Abby's parents, older sister, and two nephews live an hour and half away and we spend time with them monthly getting together for lunches and celebrating birthdays and holidays.
Benjamin has an older brother. Benjamin's brother, parents and grandparents live out of state, but we visit with them often because Benjamin's parents are both retired and travel frequently. When we visit Benjamin's family, we play cards late into the night while enjoying traditional family recipes.
The holidays, whether it is Easter, Christmas, Thanksgiving, or Independence Day, are spent surrounded by aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins and nephews. We play games and practical jokes as well as eat delicious food and enjoy each other's company. There is lots of laughter and fun in our family!
We also have friends from Abby's college years that have become part of our family that live all over the country. We gather with our friends every year at a vacation home at New Year's Eve and celebrate by playing video games, murder mystery games, and enjoy homecooked food.
From Us to You
We are humbled and thankful that you have taken the time to learn more about us. Thank you for letting us share with you a little about ourselves and our lives. We know that the road you are walking is one filled with many choices and decisions to be made. We admire your courage and strength. We hope that learning more about us has given you peace of mind as you consider adoption. If you would like to meet and learn more about us, we would welcome any questions you have.
We are very excited about the future. We met through a dating app 4 years ago in Florida, quickly fell in love, and have been married for almost 3 years. Shortly after getting married, we moved to Georgia for new job opportunities and to be closer to our families. We love the friends we've made in our new home and count ourselves blessed to be living a good life with each other.
We have always been about communication, partnership, and walking alongside each other through every step in our lives. Very early on in dating, we were discussing what kind of family we wanted, and adoption has always been part of that conversation. When it came time to build our family, we prayed a lot about it, and adoption became the loud voice we couldn't ignore. We enjoy our lives immensely and want to share our lives with a child. We want to take them on family vacations, encourage them as they discover their own interests and hobbies, and watch them grow up. Our families are extremely supportive of us and our decision to expand our family through adoption. Our families are very involved in our lives and will spend great amounts of time with a child teaching them values we believe in.
We want you to know that you are loved. Your baby is loved. We want to affirm and encourage you on this incredibly emotional journey.
You are an incredibly courageous person who shows selflessness and humility in your actions. We delight in the role you will play, whatever you choose for that to be. You are significant to us and always will be. We welcome your continued investment in your child's life. We are happy to share with you your child's milestones and experiences through photos, letters, and emails if desired. We will always be open and honest with your child regarding adoption. We are also open to making arrangements for visits when the time is right. We are eager to know you and are happy to make this commitment to you: We will always speak highly of you and honor you with our words and actions. From our perspective, you have made a brave decision, and we will always respect you for your choice. Our gratitude for your selflessness will be evident in our home. You will be in our prayers as you are guided through this journey.
Thank you again for allowing us the chance to share our heart with you.
Benjamin & Abby
