We’re Ryan and Elizabeth. Ten years ago, we fell in love over a cup of coffee and have been together ever since. We live in a great apartment in Manhattan with some cuddly cats. Our families and friends are at the heart of our lives, and we are looking forward to expanding our family and becoming parents.

Our Lives

We like a home that’s full of music, laughter, and good food. We share stories while we cook and eat, and like to make up songs to sing to each other and our cats. Our home is a place for hugs, great memories and spending time with each other.

Our Family

We’re blessed to count so many people as important to our lives, in addition to each other. Ryan has his mom, and aunt and uncle, plus his half-brother and half-sister, as well as many friends. Elizabeth has her parents and sister in Louisiana, her aunt in Pittsburgh, and many friends all over.

Final Words

“We’re so excited to add to our family, and share the love and light of our lives with the child who’s coming to us, and we’re very thankful to the birth family that chooses us.”
