Brad B.'s Family Brad L.'s Family

Friends & Family

We both come from close-knit families and believe our shared value of family life is part of what brought us together.

Brad B. grew up with a large family, so life was filled with family get-togethers for birthdays, anniversaries, graduations and every holiday. Except for one family who are missionaries in Tanzania, Africa, the rest of his 28-member family still lives in the Pacific Northwest, so get-togethers are still full of stories, laughter and plenty of hugs. They cannot wait for the next addition to the family.

Brad L's family lives in Alabama. He comes from a small but mighty family consisting of his mom, his grandmother, who lives in the same area, and his younger brother. His parents were married for 40 years until his dad passed away in 2010. His mom is very much looking forward to her second grandchild and spoiling him/her in the way only a grandmother can. He was raised by loving parents who, through their laughter, caring deeds and wonderful stories, taught him the most important things in life: To live life fully and to cherish those you love.

In addition to family, we have a close network of friends we also consider family. We love hanging out with our friends and their children, having dinners together, and we host a yearly “Cookie Crumble” where our friends look forward to exchanging cookies for the holidays. In fact, each year promises to get bigger and better than the last… we just say the more the merrier. All of our friends are excited about our second adoption journey and can't wait to help us out every step of the way. It's true that friends are the family you choose for yourself, and our friends are just the best in the world!
