Names: Brandon and Ashley
Profession: Brandon is a pharmacist at a large hospital where he manages an oncology team. Ashley is a Physician’s Assistant who works on a team of clinicians reviewing medical claims. Prior to this, she spent several years practicing internal medicine and nephrology. Both of our careers allow us to have flexibility to attend events at school and be very involved in our daughter’s life.
Family: We have been married for 10 years. We have a 6-year-old daughter named Parker Olivia. Whenever we were expecting Parker, Brandon’s parents moved from Eastern Kentucky to live down the street from us. Soon after, Brandon’s brother and his wife moved here, as well. Ashley’s sister and her family live in Eastern Kentucky, but we still get to visit with them often. Parker loves playing with her cousins and she is so ready to have a baby brother or sister to play with.
Pets: We have one cat, a Maine Coon named Callie. She is typically shy but when it is her idea, she will climb up in your lap and gives the best love.
Hobbies: We enjoy going on vacations together. We typically go on at least two to three vacations a year, one being with our extended family. We love spending time together swimming, going to festivals, museums, parks, and doing other fun family activities. We enjoy the outdoors, including camping, biking, and going to the lake. We also enjoy time at home together, relaxing and watching movies or playing board games. As far as when it is just the two of us, sometimes we just enjoy time staying at home watching our shows together. We like to make time for date nights to grab dinner and watch a movie.
Brandon enjoys watching sports, especially University of Kentucky basketball and football. When those are in season, he loves to get with his friends to catch a game. He loves listening to music of all kinds and going to concerts. He also can be a bit of a nerd at times reading science fiction novels and watching Star Wars.
Ashley loves spending quality time with family and friends. She volunteers her time in the community as the leader of Parker’s Girl Scout troop and serving in the PTA. She loves Christmas where she decorates four trees and the entire house. When she has time, she likes to catch up on her favorite shows including Grey’s Anatomy and This Is Us. She also likes to cook, exercise, and shop.
Adoption Statement: We are so excited that you are viewing our profile and getting to know our family. We understand that this decision does not come lightly and we are humbled by your strength and selflessness as you search for a loving home for your child. We pray that you will have hope and peace in your decision.
When we found out that we were unable to conceive again, we remained confident, as we know that everything happens for a reason. We have deeply wanted to grow our family for years. We have a lot of love to give and Parker cannot wait to be a big sister. We could not be more excited for the chance to adopt. We promise to love and care for your child unconditionally. We promise to provide a stable and secure home full of happiness. Thank you so much for considering us.
