Pierre & Nicole
– Missouri –
We began exploring adoption when we began fertility treatments in early 2017. We feel so strongly about family and want to give an opportunity to a child to have a safe, happy, loving home. During our journey, we had many open discussions about our life and what it would mean to have a child. We want nothing more than to watch, teach, love, and nurture a child. Our brothers and sisters, parents, nieces and nephews are very close. Our families spend much time together and are very excited and supportive of growing the family.
Pierre is loyal, hard working, fun and passionate man. Pierre is an Executive Chef at a restaurant in Missouri. He grew up and went to school in Missouri. While working at his parents restaurant, he decided he wanted to follow in his fathers footsteps and become a chef as well. This lead him to culinary school in Norfolk, Virginia. Pierre has traveled and worked in Arizona and Australia but always came back home to be close to family. Pierre has worked very hard to get to the position he is at now. The passion he shows in his work and food is only exceeded by his passion for Nicole, family and friends.
Nicole is a strong, hard-working, caring and persistent woman. Nicole’s family owned a business in the customer service industry. She grew up working hard while spending time alongside her family. This gave Nicole the drive to succeed in her career in the hospitality industry. Nicole attended Catholic schools then followed by college in Missouri, studying business and special event planning. She started working in hotel sales and event planning just following college and it truly became her passion. Now fifteen years later, Nicole manages the sales and marketing department at a resort. She enjoys her career but wants nothing more than then to expand her family with children.
After searching for over a year for the perfect home, we found the one that we knew was it. We knew we wanted to raise a family here! Our home has a big back yard and is close to the neighborhood lake with access to fishing and kayaking. Our dog Easter enjoys the big back yard, woods behind our home and neighborhood walking trails.
We have one dog, named Easter.
Pierre grew up in Missouri with two brothers and parents. As a family, we all enjoyed our summers playing tennis, golf, fishing and swimming on a daily basis. We took family trips to see family over seas. My mom Anju was from Nairobi, Kenya with family living there as well as London, England. My dad grew up in Nimes, France. I am the youngest of three brothers
Nicole grew up in a family of five; two sisters and two loving parents. We had a family-owned business for much of my childhood. We all worked a lot but also spent time having fun together as much as we could. Our family enjoyed boating on the weekends. Family vacations were taken snow skiing, canoeing or exploring areas in nature like Elephant Rock State Park and Johnson Shut In’s.
