2: Length of Marriage Six Years Children in our Family Our son Grady - Adopted Interests as a couple We enjoy a variety of things including vacationing, camping, cooking and going to the beach. Our favorite thing of all is being parents and spending time at the park or on a long walk with our son. Our favorite sport is baseball and we love going to the ballpark. Throughout our marriage we have been to many places such as New York, Colorado, Hawaii and Chicago. We enjoy spending time with our families whether it is barbecuing in the backyard or spending a day at the beach. Region/Home We live in a beautiful community on the Central Coast in California. There are several parks with huge playgrounds and walking trails in close proximity to where we live. Reason we're adopting We are unable to have biological children so God has led us to adoption. Even before we found out that we were unable to have biological children our dream was always to adopt children. Finances Garrett has a very good and stable job with the fire department. He receives full medical, dental and vision coverage for our entire family. He works about twelve days a month so he has a lot of time to spend at home with the kids. Childcare plans Nicole is a stay at home mother and will be with the children full time. Garrett plans to take off four to six weeks of work to be at home when we first bring the baby home.
3: Dear Birthparents, We want to thank you for taking your time to get to know a little about our family. We realize that you have had a very difficult and emotional decision to make. You are a very loving and courageous person for choosing life for your child. We both have been praying for you and our hope is that you may find comfort and peace. About Us We first met in high school and were both interested in one another but neither of us had the courage to ask the other out. We reconnected at our five year high school reunion and have been together ever since. After a few years of dating we were married in 2005 in Southern California. We have found our joys in life and they are having a strong marriage and being parents. About Nicole (from Garrett) Nicole is a very loving and caring person who always puts others first. She has a beautiful smile and a calm personality that attracted me to her when we first met. She is a very creative person who has a natural talent for decorating and photography. Nicole loves to have family and friends over to our home and she always makes everyone feel welcome. When we first started dating I knew in my heart that one day we would be married. Nicole has been a wonderful mother to our son and I am truly blessed to have her as my wife. About Garrett (from Nicole) Garrett is my best friend and the love of my life. He is one of the best gifts that God has blessed me with. It constantly amazes me that he always finds positives to focus on in life, even when others are down. He is a loving and devoted husband and father who always puts others needs before his own. He is the type of father that will coach the baseball team and help with the homework. I enjoy seeing how his face lights up when he sees our son. My love for him grows deeper each day and I thank God that I will journey through life with him by my side. Thank you again for taking the time to learn a little about us. We understand you have a difficult decision to make and we respect you for choosing life. God has a special plan for you. You will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers. May God bless you on this journey. With Best Wishes, Garrett & Nicole
