Names: Dana and Ryan
Professions: Dana is a middle school science teacher and just recently completed her degree to become a school guidance counselor. Ryan is a project manager for Cincinnati Bell.
Family: We are blessed to have 3 boys biologically. After Dana’s difficult pregnancies and being advised that she should not carry any more children, she knew the direction she was meant to go to complete their family. She has always had adoption on her heart, and so after speaking with Ryan, we decided to take this journey together and are excited to be a part of it.
Pets: We have a black Schnoodle named Harlow. She is a wonderful family dog and the kids love her.
Hobbies: Dana enjoys capturing moments through photography, organizing, reading and spending time with her family. Dana loves clogging, a form of dance and she teaches a class during the week. Ryan enjoys playing softball and plays once a week on a coed team. Another hobby for Ryan is poker. He loves the strategic game and has won a seat to the WSOP twice. As a family we love to spend time together traveling. On the warmer evenings we love to watch the kids play outside. We are blessed to live in a great neighborhood and spend a lot of time with our neighbors. There are kids of all ages and we pick a driveway and enjoy the kids. Often times there are cookouts, baseball games, power wheels and the famous sno-cone machine that the kids love. We are excited for our kids to grow up in this area and look forward to sharing these moments with another child.
We are the Brady Family! We want to thank you for giving us this opportunity to share more about our lives with you. Every story has a family and we are grateful for you allowing us to share ours with you. We know that the decision you have to make is incredibly hard and we want you to know that we honor your bravery and will be praying that God leads you to make the direction that is meant for you and your baby. Dana has always felt like adoption was on her heart and so sitting in church in November, which happens to be adoption awareness month, it was like she was moved to answer the call. Dana went home and spoke with Ryan and together we decided to pursue this journey. We reached out to Leigh at Heart to Home and was just moved by her encouraging words.
If chosen, we promise to respect and honor your decision along with providing a safe and loving home for your child. This baby will know that they are respected and cared for and will have a great group of siblings cheering them on throughout life. Along with their siblings, they will have a great amount of love and support from our friends and family. We are truly grateful for you considering us to be the family for your child. We look forward to speaking with you soon. We would love to answer any questions that you may have and look forward to meeting you.
