A Letter from Stewart & Briana

Thank you for viewing our profile! We are an easygoing and quirky couple from Ohio that is thrilled to grow our family through adoption. We love to travel and bake and look forward to sharing our love of books and musical theater with your child. We are excited to meet you and welcome your child into our large, loving, multi-cultural family!

About Us

We met through our church in Maryland, and from the moment we became friends we knew we were meant to be together. We have been married for several years now and have a 2-year-old son named Oliver.

We enjoy spending our time watching cooking and baking shows, playing games, spending time with family and with each other. As a fun fact, we speak Spanish!

We are very excited to share our love for travel with our next child and hope to pass on our love of learning, goofy sense of humor. More than anything, we want to teach our child to love the Lord and to love others the way Christ loves them.

 

Meet Stewart

Stewart is the best husband and father I could ask for. He is family-oriented and would do anything for us. During the day, he messages me to see how I’m doing, and, though he works all day, he still takes time to be with myself and Oliver. Stewart has a great sense of humor, and that was what first attracted me to him. He is an avid reader and loves fantasy novels. He enjoys playing board games, camping, and spending time with family. Stewart is always there to help others and is always the first person to lend a hand. I know that he is looking forward to taking our children camping and experiencing nature with them.

Meet Briana

She is a wonderful wife, quick to offer encouragement and help me overcome problems great and small. Briana is smart as a whip, is patient, and enjoys helping others in their walk with Christ. She loves spending time together as a family and has a strong desire to interact with and experience different cultures through trips to museums, overseas travel, and more. Briana also loves music! She plays the guitar and writes her own songs. She enjoys reading and loves her monthly book club. She truly loves being a mom and I know that she will welcome your child with open arms and lots of love. Briana looks forward to being able to take our children to the theater and teach them about history.

Our Home and Neighborhood

We are from Ohio. We live in a two-story home in a quiet, diverse neighborhood. Our street is a small loop off the main road, so the only traffic that comes by our house is of those who live in the neighborhood. It is a safe place for kids to play outside, and many of the neighbor kids do! Our children will have the wonderful opportunity to grow up in an ethnically diverse neighborhood where so many different cultures are represented.

We live within walking distance of the neighborhood park, library, and YMCA. The city zoo is only a short drive from our house and our area has many family-friendly events to attend during the summer and major holidays.

Our Family

We originally moved to Ohio because Stewart’s whole family lives here. Stewart is the 4th of six children, and all his siblings, plus his parents, live within a half hour drive from us. Our children would have 14 first cousins on this side of the family alone! We love that our kids will grow up with their cousins and develop a strong sense of family.

Briana’s family lives in Florida. We see them about twice a year, so its a big deal when we get to visit with Mamà and Abuelo!

The best part about our families is that they mesh so well together. Our parents love each other, and they have even gone down to Florida and visited with each other – without us!

Our families are excited to welcome a new baby, and a little brother or sister for Oliver.

Our Promise

We promise to love your child unconditionally, and raise them with patience and grace. We value learning and education and promise to give your child the best opportunities to reach their full potential. Your child will grow up in a loving and stable Christian home of love, support, and God. We will raise your child to grow in emotional maturity, to discover their talents and gifts, to appreciate diversity, to love others, and to love themselves.

Thank you for taking the time to consider us to adopt your baby. We are open to visits, letters, and pictures. If you would like to contact us, please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.
