|More About Our Family
We are devout Catholic Christians and we promise to share our faith with our children, ensuring the best path for them to know and love God. God has so profoundly blessed us! And because our faith is so important to us, we make time to pray together and with others daily.
|Our Navy Story|
We met at the U.S. Naval Academy in Maryland where we became great friends. It was not until we were reunited in Hawai'i years later as naval officers where we began our relationship. Rob remained in Hawai'i when Michael Ann was stationed in California and kept a long-distance relationship. We endured two long deployments before we were married. We have been enjoying our 5 years of happy, healthy, and holy marriage in California while still on active duty. We love serving our great nation and are blessed to do it together now as a Navy family. Raising children in a military family teaches them about the importance of serving others, how to be resilient, and the value in traveling the world!
|We Live in the State of...|
California! Our home is right on the coast and has access to a cliffside sunset lookout which we use almost every night. Michael Ann is from California so it is wonderful to spend so much time with her childhood family and friends. Having Grandma and Grandpa close has been not only tremendous support for us but such a gift.
|Our Son and His Story|
Joseph is the most amazing little soul! He was born in December of 2019 and came to us on New Year's Day 2020. We fell in love with him the moment he came into our lives. Joseph is always exploring and full of joy. He is hitting many milestones ahead of time and is, therefore, keeping us on our toes! We love keeping up with his new interests and wonders. He will be a great big brother!
|Our Open Adoption|
We knew how special adoption was before we met our son, but we couldn't imagine how fortunate we would be or how much our hearts would grow. We have a phenomenal relationship with Joseph's birth family and keep in close and frequent contact with them. Open adoption has yielded numerous and beautiful surprises for us all. We are excited to learn more about you and look forward to creating an open relationship with you based on your comfort level.
Our Labradoodles, Bobo and Ginger, are great companions on this life journey! Bobo and Ginger are siblings from the same litter so I guess that makes them twins! They have a great demeanor and are wonderful with children. They especially love running at the park, playing fetch, walking on the beach, swimming at Grandma and Grandpa's, and snuggling on the couch with Joseph! We know they will love your baby and be best friends growing up.

We hope to share the many blessings we have with your child and create a loving and open relationship with you. Thank you for considering us worthy to love your baby. God bless you and keep you.
