Paula & Josh

– Maryland –

Introduction

Hello! We are a family of three who are hoping to adding fourth! We are both teachers who love having our summers off to spend time with family and traveling. We are hoping for an open or a semi open adoption because we feel that it is very important to children. We love Disney movies, going to historical places, reading and just enjoying each other’s company!

About Paula

Hello! I am originally from Ohio (eastern panhandle), but have been in Maryland for almost 15 years. I am a teacher and have always wanted a large family. I love sweets (ice cream is the best!), and I love summers (hotter the better). My favorite Disney movie is The Emperor’s New Groove (but I enjoy the princesses too).

About Josh

I was born in Scranton, PA area but I ended up in the Maryland/DC area when I was about 7. I love watching sports- specifically baseball (I wanted to be a professional baseball player when I was a kid). I love watching The God Father series, and spending time chasing my daughter around and talking to her on our trips to school. I love reading just about anything, and am willing to discuss anything with anyone.

Building Our Family Through Adoption

Our Letter To You

Dear Expectant Mother:

Life has a funny way of throwing curve balls at us, as I am sure you know. For Josh and I, it was how we were to build our family. We had planned, and then as they say “God laughs.” Things did not happen the way we thought they would but we never gave up hope that it would happen. ​

We have hopes and dreams just as you do. We hope that you consider us when choosing a life for your child. We are a faithful Catholic couple, who have been blessed with a little girl through adoption who truly loves babies, and is very excited to become a big sister.

We know that you are going through something you may not have planned, but that you hold on to that hope that something good will come out of it. Please consider Josh and I when choosing parents for this child. Our hearts and souls are filled with love and joy that are just bursting at the seams to not only share with your child, but also you and your family. We truly love that adoption expands our family in so many awesome ways.Our dream is to have children who can grow up together, bonding with special memories, and having someone else that they can always count on, but at the same time knowing where they came from and celebrating that as well. ​

We are so glad that you are looking for help and guidance to research what is best for your child. Thank you for reading our story, and for considering us.

Paula and Josh

Our Parenting Style

We are pretty laid back and give several warnings before anything occurs. Once our child makes a mistake, it really depends on what she actually did. Usually it means making an apology, or sometimes she looses something-tablet for example. Sometimes she just needs to take a time out for a little while (5-6 minutes max).

Our Story

Our Story

We live is a three bedroom townhome in a suburban city in Maryland. There is a playground down the street and plenty of space to do fun activities!

Our nursery isn’t really set up as one currently (our 6 year old is using it as a play room), but everything we need is ready to come out. We are hoping to use a Disney theme when the time comes.

There are three of us in our little family(We are Paula, Josh and Gabbie, 6). We love watching movies, going to visit our family in other states, heading to the beach, drawing, and reading stories together.

We lost our cat last year and have not gotten another pet yet (but we are hoping to find another cat to add to our family!).

We have an open adoption with our daughter’s maternal grandmother and brothers and a semi open adoption with her biological mother. We love spending time with them, and talking about her family. It is really important for us to have that connection for our daughter and any future children.
