ABOUT OUR FAMILY:

We both come from big families and grew up with strong role models in our parents. There was always love and support and the example that was set is something we have carried with us into our own parenting. Joel has 3 siblings, 3 nieces, and 1 nephew on his side. Brenddan has 2 siblings and 3 nephews on his side. Family is extremely important to us and with most of our family close by, we feel lucky to be able to connect regularly and create memories together.

 

We were both born in Canada; Brenddan has Ukrainian and Irish heritage and Joel has German and Dutch heritage. Our daughter Frankie came into our life through adoption almost 2 years ago and we are deeply grateful for the life we have created together so far. We have always wanted a sibling for her to grow up with and we know she would be the best big sister! We also have a Bernese Mountain dog named Poppy and her and Frankie have become best friends.

OUR HOME & COMMUNITY:

We live in a townhome surrounded by nature and close to many parks and walking trails. Our backyard faces trees and a creek making it a very peaceful and relaxing place to hang out. Our home is spacious with plenty of room to continue growing our family. We believe that family is not only about the big moments, but the smaller ones too. There is so much joy to be had in the daily activities that happen within a home and we look forward to sharing that joy with a new addition to our family.

OPENNESS:

We understand the importance of openness and the impact it can have on a child’s upbringing and their journey to self discovery. We want them to be completely aware of the beauty and uniqueness that their family holds. With our first daughter, Frankie, we have been completely transparent and talked openly with her about her birth family. We have also included photos and little anecdotes about her birth family in her baby book so as she grows up, we have somewhere to look together when she has any questions. We know every adoption story looks different and we look forward to discussing openness and your hopes and wishes, with you.
