We met more than twenty years ago at an investment company where we were both working. We were in training together and met on our first day at a new employee meet and greet. Scott was the first person to walk up and introduce himself to Kristen.
We have been married for more than fifteen wonderful years and we still have so much fun together.
While talking, we both instantly knew there was a connection. We were friends for a year before we started dating. We dated for nearly four years before marrying in 2004.
We have been married for more than fifteen wonderful years and we still have so much fun together. We discovered early on that we were great travel companions. While dating, we enjoyed traveling to places like Las Vegas, Key West, Miami (or anywhere with a beautiful pool), trying new restaurants, seeing concerts, and just enjoying one another's company. After we got married, our goal was to travel for five years before settling down and starting a family. Seven years later we had our daughter, Carly.
We are so happy to have accomplished our travel goal, to experience new places, people, and culture. We feel the time we spent together has made us better people and better parents.
We have a daughter who is 8 and her name is Carly. When Carly was around three years old, we tried to have another biological child. After suffering three miscarriages, it was clear to us that having another child naturally would not be the path for us. We immediately decided on exploring our options with adoption versus pursuing alternative methods like IVF.
We would love for our daughter Carly to grow up with a sibling. Carly would love nothing more than to have a sibling. We have also seen a very positive experience with adoption as Scott's sister and her husband adopted a beautiful baby girl named Remi, who is now 5-years old. Watching Remi grow to be vibrant, smart, healthy, and an active little girl has helped validate our feelings of adoption.
