From Marathon to Marriage!
Steven and I met when our mutual friend put together a relay marathon team. Steven and I were both asked to join! We enjoyed spending time with one another that weekend, but Steven still had one year of college left and we lived in different cities. A year went by and Steven ended up accepting a job in Houston and asked for me to show him around the area. The rest is history! Steven and I dated for three years before getting engaged. We have now been married for 4.5 years!
Meeting one another was definitely worth the wait. Over these last few years of marriage, our relationship has grown stronger than ever. We have had to accept our infertility diagnosis and find the strength as a couple to overcome it. Our adoption journey has given us new hope and excitement for our next steps as a married couple. We can’t wait to add a child to our family!
We love family traditions, and we can’t wait to have a child to add to the memories! We spend time every summer in Michigan with Kristyn's immediate family, aunt, uncle, and cousins. Kristyn grew up spending summers here, and it is a place that is near and dear to her heart. It is where we got engaged! We can't wait to bring a child to this special place. We also love to travel and explore other parts of the world. We have gone on trips to Spain, Croatia, Italy, Mexico, the Czech Republic, Switzerland, and many other places! We cannot wait to bring our child with us on future travels so that he or she can explore the world with us. Another fun tradition that we do as a family is matching Christmas pajamas and coordinated Halloween costumes. Even Phoebe gets to join in on the fun! We also look forward to starting many new family traditions together!
