We met in 2011 in Orlando, Florida and it was love at first sight! We had so much fun on our first date playing putt-putt and it’s been a match made in heaven ever since. We are best friends, who support each other in everything that we do. We love adventures together, but also enjoy relaxing days at home. We share similar goals and family values! We got married in September 2014 in Arkansas. We just celebrated 6 years of marriage. We dated for almost 4 years before getting engaged. The wedding was such a joyous celebration with our closest family and friends! Danielle is very passionate about her career as a teacher! She is a hard worker and determined to always do her best at everything. She loves to read, attend workout classes, and spend time with friends & family! Tyler is funny, reliable, and thoughtful. He loves running, riding his mountain bike, and attending basketball games. Tyler has the unique ability to make everyone laugh. Tyler is a hard-worker and currently owns his own business. No task is too big or too small, and Tyler jumps at the chance to help others. He is always dedicated to everything he puts is mind to. In 2019, we adopted our first child. EJ is now 2 years old and is the sweetest and funniest boy around. We absolutely love watching him grow and know he will be the best big brother.
Our Home and Pets…
Over the last 11 years, Florida has become our home. We love living in a state that allows us to enjoy the outdoors in all four seasons. We love owning a home and enjoy our neighborhood! We live on a quiet street with lots of growing families and children to play with. Our home is near a wonderful elementary school and is close to Danielle’s work. We have a wonderful park right down the street. We love spending time in our cozy home! It is filled with love and laughter and we dream of expanding our family by adopting another child. We are so lucky to have such a supportive group of friends that we call family. Our friend circle has grown with many of our friends having babies. Some of EJ’s best friends are our best friend’s kids. We have a small dog, Moose, who is 10 years old and loves to cuddle. You can often find us on walks around the neighborhood with EJ and Moose.
Danielle is the oldest of 7 siblings. EJ is lucky to have such loving aunts and uncles. Her parents are divorced, but she is fortunate to have an amazing step-dad and step-mom. Danielle’s family is really close and all very caring. When you are around them, you are guaranteed to laugh and have a great time! Danielle’s sisters have both started growing their families and EJ currently has 2 cousins and 1 on the way. They all love playing together. Tyler is the youngest sibling. He has incredible parents who are fantastic grandparents and will lovingly welcome a new baby into the family. We have 6 nieces and nephews on the Tyler’s side of the family! Tyler has an incredibly large extended family with too many cousins to count. They will all be so excited about the arrival of a new cousin. Every time Tyler’s family is together, it is guaranteed that we will be found playing a game.
Our Journey to Adoption…
We have always known that we wanted to be parents. When the time came to plan how we wanted to grow our family, we knew adoption was for us. In January 2019, we adopted our first son. He has been an absolute light in our life and we have enjoyed every moment of watching him grow. We have always envisioned having more than one child and know EJ will be a wonderful big brother. We have a very positive, nurturing, and loving home to offer a child and are grateful for the opportunity to adopt. We are looking forward to sharing our love and home with another little one soon.
