Max and Brittany

Hi! We are Brittany and Max from New York. Thank you for taking the time to learn about us!

We understand how difficult it is to truly know someone by reading a few paragraphs and seeing a couple of pictures, but we feel so fortunate that you have taken the time to look at us. We are so excited to be given the opportunity to go on this journey together.

Adoption has always been something that has been in our hearts and has been a part of our lives, even at a young age. After trying to conceive on our own, it became apparent that adoption was exactly what we needed and wanted to do. We want to adopt to grow our family and have someone to share our love and life experiences with every day. We have so much love to give and cannot wait to share that with a child.

Story

WE MET OUR FRESHMEN YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL IN MATH CLASS. We had assigned seats and ended up next to one another which was great for Brit and her dislike of math, Max was a total numbers nerd! We became best friends first and started dating as sophomores in high school after. We loved playing sports together, eating pizza, hanging with our families and friends, watching movies and being goofy, which are all very true today. We both went away to different colleges in different states and maintained a long-distance relationship. This is when we learned that communication is key and have adopted that as a core value in our relationship ever since.

About US

We have been married ten years and have built a wonderful life together. We truly live life joyfully together. On any given day you can find us dancing in the kitchen, planning out our next home project, playing with our pups, challenging one another to pool in our basement, cleaning up our yard or sitting by the fi e. We couldn’t be more excited to add a child into the mix of love and fun!

I LOVE BEING A TEACHER!
RUNNING MY FIRST HALF MAR ATHON

BRIT IS MY BEST FRIEND. She is hands down my biggest supporter and the love of my life! She has always been there for me through any obstacle I have faced and gives advice even if it’s tough. Brittany is always up for an adventure and I love spending time with her; relaxing on a Friday night, adventuring to the mountains, soaking up the sun at the lake, dancing with me in the kitchen and taking an interest in all my hobbies!

She is so caring and passionate in everything she is a part of; from friends, to family, to teaching her little 1st graders, coaching her lacrosse team and of course our pups! She brings out the best in everyone and knows how to make them feel cared for in the best way.

Brittany is so excited to provide a loving, fun and caring environment to a little one and I cannot wait to see her in action. She will, without a doubt, be a great mom.

DO WHAT YOU LOVE,

LOVE WHAT YOU DO

I AM A FIRST-GRADE TEACHER. I have been teaching for ten years and love every second of the messes, laughs, learning and most of all love from my kids! The best part of my career is building a relationship with each child and being able to be a part of their lives for years to come. Teaching allows me to also have summers off, all holidays and be able to be home by late afternoon to spend more time with family.

LOVE SPENDING TIME WITH MY SWEET NEPHEWS

WEDDINGS WITH MAX'S SIDE OF THE FAMILY ARE ALWAYS A BLAST!

MAX HAS BEEN MY BEST FRIEND SINCE WE WERE FIFTEEN AND NOW HE IS THE BEST HUSBAND. Max is my home. He provides, safety, security, comfort, encouragement, guidance, and unconditional love. Max continues to amaze me with his motivation to learn new things. He can tile a floo , build a beautiful desk, snowboard for the fir t time at 32, sing a bed time song to his nieces, all after working a full day and doing it all with a smile. He loves doing anything outside, especially sports or yard work. He is always listening to music and singing along. Max is easily a favorite among my family and friends because of his sweet disposition and ability to make others feel at ease. I know Max will be the most amazing father. He will provide a loving, supportive and fun environment for a child to grow up in. I am so excited to have the opportunity to share Max and give someone else the chance to have someone in their life that makes it so wonderful

BEING SILLY WITH UNCLE MAX
WHAT A CATCH!

DO WHAT YOU LOVE,

LOVE WHAT YOU DO

I AM AN ACCOUNTING AND FINANCE MANAGER AT A LARGE INDUSTRIAL CORPORATION. I have been a part of my company for 11 years and enjoy my career because I get to problem solve and trouble shoot different financial issues. I enjoy leading my team and helping them grow in their careers as well.

My job offers a flexible work from home schedule which allows me more time to be flexible for my family.

HOME

“A house is made of walls and beams; a home is built with love and dreams.”

HOME SWEET HOME
MILA LOVES THE LAKE!
PAINTING OUR FRONT PORCH

WE WERE BORN AND RAISED IN NEW YORK STATE. We settled here because we love what this state and our area has to offer. New York brings all four seasons and we enjoy the outdoors in each season with hikes, boat rides, swimming, campfires, walks, sledding and more. Our community and school district both offer many different opportunities for children, from sports, to camps and clubs and music. There are many

kind, loving and supportive teachers in the district that we still keep in contact with today. We have lived in our home for 8 years and we have put a lot of work into making it ours, it has showed us what a great team we have become. It is very spacious and has a wonderful backyard with woods to explore! Our kitchen is the heart of the home. Whenever people are over (or even if it is just the two of us) we always end up gathering there around our island.

DOGS

“The journey of life is sweeter when traveled with a dog.”

We have two wonderful dogs.

LOLA LOVES THE SNOW!

LOLA is our sweet and sassy toy poodle. She is the best at cuddles and loves her walks, bed and treats! Lola has been a part of our lives for eleven years!

MILA LOVES WATCHING HER COUSINS PLAY

MILA is our five-year-old Great Dane. She is much bigger than Lola, but don’t be fooled, Lola runs the house! Mila loves to go for walks in the woods, playing tug-a-war and laying on the couch. She has the sweetest and goofie t personality and is always by our sides.

Tribe

“Be around people
that are good for your soul.”

Brittany’s entire family lives here, including both sets of grandparents and her only brother. Spending time at the cottage together, Sunday dinners, and watching games are just a few of the things we do together.

She has so many cherished memories from the amazing childhood her parents gave to her and we’re filled with joy thinking about providing those same magical memories for our child someday.

Max’s family mostly lives in Michigan, but visits and stays with us whenever they come to town. We also take time to visit them in Michigan. We have seven nieces and nephews (and counting) on Max’s side and when we are together things are always exciting, crazy, fun and noisy! We love to have game nights, run around with the nieces and nephews and eat good food!

We also have a strong support system of friends in the area that we spend much of our time with and consider as family. We cannot wait to bring a child into both of our families and friends lives because we know how blessed we are by all of them. Our child will, no doubt, feel that unconditional love, support and joy as well.

FINAL

THOUGHTS

“Today, my heart is grateful for you.”

We cannot begin to thank you enough for taking the time to get to know us and understanding our dream to expand our family through adoption.

We admire your courage, strength and selflessness in choosing adoption. We want you to know your child will have so much love in their lives and will always know how important you are in their story. Sending pictures, letters, emails and visits are all things we are open to do to support you and your child. We believe that we can give you and your child exactly what is needed to thrive in this life.

WE HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU AGAIN.

WITH

Love,

Max and Brittany

WE WOULD LOVE TO

HEAR FROM YOU!
