Meet Stephen and Cara...
Stephen owns his own accounting firm, where he supports non-profit organizations that work to improve disadvantaged communities. Cara works in Human Resources, managing compensation & reporting. We met in 2005 through a mutual friend and married in 2014. Brady was born in 2018, and is a funny, sweet boy who loves monster trucks & dinosaurs
As a family, we love spending time outdoors, going to the beach, and playing games. Pulling out a game like Candy Land, Connect 4 or Mancala is a fun way for us to spend an evening together. Being active, Brady loves to splash and swim in a pool. He also will run like crazy, chasing a soccer ball to try to score a goal! Stephen loves walking along the river and shooting hoops. Cara spends her free time reading mystery novels or running. She’s completed countless 5Ks, two half-marathons and took part in a 100-mile relay!
Our Extended Family/Holiday Gatherings:
There are always aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents around! Christmas is a big holiday in our family, and we spend lots of time with family beforehand going to see Christmas lights, as well as on both Christmas Eve & Day. Birthdays are always a special day to celebrate the person – and always require cake! We also love to get together when the weather is nice for a cookout. With our family, we can always find reasons to celebrate!
Our Adoption Story:
From the day we met, we knew we wanted a big family. After many years of infertility treatments, we welcomed Brady; we were told we would be unable to have any more children of our own, and knew adoption was our path to build our family.
Special Activities We Look Forward to Doing with Our Child:
Brady is so eager & excited to be a big brother! He can’t wait to play with his brother or sister on the beach during our annual Labor Day vacation. We can’t wait to welcome a new “team member” into our sports-mania family! During football season, we love to get together with family & friends to root for our favorite teams while enjoying good, fun food! We also look forward having another child join our living room dance parties!
