Building Our Family Through Adoption

Our Letter To You

Dear birth mother,

We are thrilled that you have chosen to spend some time looking at our profile. We don’t know you yet but would like to get to know you better. We can tell you about us in the meantime. We are a family of three. Ours names are Brian, Aimee, and Colin. We like to say we started the alphabet in our family. We became a family of three through adoption. Adoption has its ups and downs but we would not change our experience with it one little bit. Brian is a certified High School math teacher. He works part time at an Adult High School helping student who are working on getting their GED or high school diploma. Brian grew up with 5 brothers and 2 sisters. As you can imagine, as a boy he and his brothers had fun playing outdoors and getting into trouble. Brian learned the value of hard work early from his parents. He remembers many mornings of getting up early to milk the cow they had. Education was also important to his family and Brian got a degree in theater and later a teaching certificate for high school. It was teaching that he wanted to do as a career after being inspired by a Drama teacher in high school. Brian went on a two-year mission after high school to Chile where he learned Spanish. He still uses that knowledge today and can speak fluently to others in the language. Brian is lucky enough that many of his family members live close by still. They visit on a constant basis and large family gatherings are not unusual at all. Aimee is a medical laboratory technician. Right now, she is working in a Cancer genomics lab that analyzes the DNA of tumors from cancer patients. They are also testing for common genetic cancer makers in patients who have a family history of cancer. In addition to all the cancer testing, the lab is also doing Pharmacogenomics where they test DNA from patients’ blood to see how they react to common drugs that doctors prescribe. Aimee earned a certificate in pharmacogenomics not long after the program started. She would like to go on and earn a master’s degree in the field. Aimee grew up with 2 sisters and 4 brothers. She lost one brother early to leukemia. That loss was one of many reasons she chose to enter the medical field. She and her siblings don’t see each other much these days because they live all across the county, but they keep in contact through email, Facebook, and phone calls. Colin is our sweet little boy. He is intelligent and highly active. Being an only child, he is a bit spoiled as well. Colin is always moving. He loves to play outside and spend time spend with his cousins in the area. He has the best time running around in our large backyard with our beagle Rosie. Colin is in a dual immersion Spanish class at school. We wanted him to learn the language not only to help him connect with others when he is older but also because it is part of his Hispanic heritage. He has learned so much already and is excited about learning more. Colin can read simple books, write and do math in Spanish. He is always telling us about the new things he has learned and wanting to show us. We have talked with him about adopting again and he likes the idea of a younger sibling. Colin has a few names chosen for a new baby and even has plans on where the baby will sleep. He is eager to be a big brother. We (Brian and Aimee) were introduced to each other on a blind date in 2005. Brian’s brother worked with Aimee in the hospital lab and learned that she had some similar interests to Brian. Our first date was a double date with Brian’s brother and his wife to a Denny’s restaurant after which we a game of Sequence at Aimee’s place. Neither of us was sure what to think of that first date but Brian did call and ask Aimee out again. After many more dates, a number of Lord of the Rings card games, a few long car trips, and some ice cream, we were married later that year. Both our families were thrilled. After 7 years of marriage, Colin joined us. We knew when we got married that our family was not going to grow the typical way. Aimee was diagnosed early in life with a genetic disorder that made a family impossible naturally. We talked about adoption before getting married and started the process as soon as we could after. It was hard to wait for the call that we had been chosen. We met Colin’s birthmother when she was 6 months pregnant. We only got to meet and talk to her twice, which we regret. The pregnancy was hard on her because Colin had gastroschisis so she was sick quite a bit. We sent emails to her and checked up on here as much as we could. We were thrilled when Colin arrived. He had to stay in the NICU for a month to recover from his surgery, but he was the cutest baby in the ward we think. We still send letters and pictures every to his birthmother every three months or so as she requested. Colin knows he was adopted and we tell him stories about it all the time. One day when he is older we are hoping he will get a chance to meet his birthmother. We love to spend time outdoors and with family whenever we can. We are lucky enough to be near some national parks and have numerous choices of local trails for hiking. We have a great time getting together with family every Sunday for dinner. We feel lucky to have family close by. Adoption can be scary and wonderful at the same time. Both sides of our families have adoption stories. Brian has two cousins that were adopted, one internationally, and Aimee has 6 cousins that were adopted, two interracial. There are many stories that go with those adoptions, both about being adopted and adopting, but they have all said it was the best choice for them. We hope you have people you love and trust to help you make your choice the best choice for you.

Our Parenting Style

Parenting is something you learn about as kids grow. We have a set of rules that we expect to be follow and everyone in the family knows what those rules are. When Colin does something he knows he shouldn’t we talk with him about what happened. When he was younger we would give “time outs” with times based on age. Now that he is older we have Colin choose what his “punishment” will be. It is usually that he can’t play the Nintendo Switch or watch YouTube for a day.

Our Story

Our Story

Our home is not large but it is comfortable and clean. We have a room that is full of books and Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter memorabilia. We love to read together as a family. Colin’s room is full of dinosaurs since he loves dinosaurs. We have an open floor plan which is perfect for our large family gatherings on Sundays and holidays. Our backyard is large with lots of grass to run around on and trees. We have a small swing set too. Close by are parks to play on and lake to fish in. We also like to go the the splash pad here in the summer when it gets hot.

We have a room that is ready to have a crib and changing table set up in it. We still have all the little boy nursery decorations from when Colin was younger but are waiting to see if we get another little boy or girl.

Our family is small but huge. We only have three in our immediate family but add siblings with their families and parents and we grow to close to 100 people. We love to get together whenever we can. Some of our extended family live close by while others are in different states. We value family and those connections more then anything else.

We have many pets. Rosie is our beagle puppy. She chews on everything and love people. We have a parakett named Erin that will set on your finger. She sings along with the game Zelda sometimes. We also have lots of fish. Our favorite fish are Neon Tetras but we like our fancy tailes Guppys too.

Colin, Our Son

We adopted Colin as an infant. He was in the NICU a month after he was born with gastroschisis. We tell him stories about his adoption when ever he asks. He loves to hear about our meetings with his birth mother. We let him know how much she loved him and how glad we are we got to be his Mom and Dad. He loves dinosaurs, cars, nerf guns, and playing with his cousins who live close by.
