Meet Brett and Portia...
Hi! We are Portia and Brett. Portia is a NICU nurse at a large teaching hospital in the city, and Brett works for a New England corporate company in sales/management. We live in the country in a beautiful town in Massachusetts with our beloved fur-babies, Cooper, Montgomery and Zeke.
We met over 18 years ago through friends at work, and to this day, still laugh about our very first date at Wendy’s. We’ve been best friends since burgers and fries, and have been happily married 10 years this August.
We have a mutual happiness for the great outdoors and can’t get enough of the beautiful seasons in New England. We love to travel and explore, as camping, bike riding, hiking, catching sunsets beachside or in the mountains, kayaking, or building snowmen and sledding, are some of our favorite pastimes. Our doggies love going on fun adventures with us, too! We can’t wait to own a camper so we can take off for trips all over the U.S., especially visiting the national parks. Portia has a passion for landscape photography and gardening, and Brett is a talented golfer and a fabulous chef in the kitchen.
Special Activities We Look Forward to Doing With Our Child:
We will be so excited to watch our child laugh, grow, learn, explore and meet every milestone, all while surrounded by lots of love and puppy kisses. We cannot wait to give you endless hugs, snuggle by a cozy fire and watch the snow fall, read you bedtime stories, watch sunsets and wish on a shooting star together, go on camping and hiking adventures, teach you how to ride a bike and to swim, to play any sport your little heart desires, visit our local pumpkin patch and beautiful orchards (pumpkin carving, apple picking and yummy cider donuts), cheer (we are huge sports fans) on the Red Sox, the Bruins and the New England Patriots with our silly pups, family and friends, and swing on your swing set in your large fenced in backyard and run around laughing, carefree with the sweet puppies, to name just a few.
Holiday Gatherings/Extended Family:
We have extended family here in MA, but also in RI, MN, MD, NJ, PA, NC and Florida. Family is everything to us, as we try to get together with each other as much as possible, whether during the holidays, reunions or special occasions. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween and weekly Sunday dinners lend to so many wonderful family traditions and recipes! We can’t wait to share all of this excitement with our little peanut, while making new memories, too! Santa, Rudolph and Charlie Brown—Oh My!
Our Adoption Story:
After years of struggling with infertility heartbreak, we both came to a mutual agreement that the beautiful gift of adoption was one day going to bless us with the journey of parenthood. We are so excited to be a mommy & a daddy!
There’s lots more to learn about this family!
