Brandon and I met in January 2004. I had been planning a trip to go visit my sister in Montana. Brandon worked with my brother in law and I met him at their store the first night I was there. When we first met I didn’t think too much about him but later that night he came over to my sister’s house and after a couple minutes I swear I was in love. I always tease that it was love at 2nd sight. Later that week we went to the movies to see Cheaper By The Dozen. Although I was dying for him to hold my hand he never did. As he was getting out of the car that night he told me, “hey, come visit me sometime.” That simple sentence was enough to convince me to extend my trip by a couple days. Luckily for us, those next couple days completely changed our lives. The next night we went bowling and then on Sunday he took me to church with him. By Monday we were in love and couldn’t stand the thought of me going back to Arizona. But I had to so we continued to date long distance for the next 5 months. We racked up a few phone bills and were able to visit twice. Finally in May 2004 he moved to Arizona. He proposed under the fire works on July 4th and we were sealed for time and all eternity in the Mesa Arizona Temple on Oct. 9, 2004. That truly was the happiest day of our lives. We were madly in love and that love has just continued to grow each day since.
Brandon - I was born and raised in Bozeman, Montana. I am the middle brother of 3 boys. I have 3 nieces and 1 nephew on my side of the family. Living in the beautiful town of Bozeman we were able to enjoy lots of time outdoors growing up.
Brandon from Jessica's point of view - I tell everybody that when it comes to husbands nobody even comes close to Brandon. He is AMAZING!! He always knows how to make me smile. I truly think that is one of his gifts. There are so many things I love about Brandon but one of the things that has always amazed me about him is his ability to overcome. Brandon seems to be able to overcome anything. He has taught me the ability to realize that you can't change the past. So instead of being angry or sad just do all you can make the situation better and move on.
Brandon has always had so much will power. If he sets his mind to something he will accomplish it and usually with 100%. Brandon is funny, smart, responsible and always willing to do anything to take care of me and our daughter. He is an amazing father and I am so blessed to be able to watch him love and care for our sweet girl. He is definitely one in a million!!
Jessica - I was born in Mesa, Arizona and moved around Arizona growing up. I am the 4th child of 5 kids. I have 3 older sisters and one little brother. I have 5 nieces and 1 nephew on my side of the family. My family has always been in to singing and dancing and just having fun together.
Jessica from Brandon's point of view - Jessica is the best wife and mother ever! She is always so considerate and thinking of ways to help others. One of her gifts is her capability to be organized and get things done! She can accomplish anything. She is very efficient. Another one of her gifts is her ability to show her love to everyone around her. I have loved watching her these last couple years since becoming a mother. She works so hard to take care of our daughter and I am grateful she is able to stay at home with her each day. She is truly the greatest wife and an amazing mother!
As a family we love to have fun!! We are always making each other laugh at the goofy things we do. We love to enjoy doing everything together even just simple things like checking the mail or going grocery shopping. Brandon enjoys riding his dirt bike, bowling, learning all he can about being a good Paramedic and serving on the volunteer fire department. Jessica loves to sing. Pretty much everyday you can find her in her basement at some point singing away on the karaoke machine. She also loves to make custom cakes. She has been teaching herself and is getting pretty good at it. Jordan is a busy toddler who loves life. She loves to dance and sing and can be found doing puzzles or building blocks most of the day. She loves the outdoors and would spend all day out there if she could. We love to watch movies and spend time with our friends and family. We do our best to live life to the fullest. One thing Brandon has taught me is not to sweat the small stuff. This has helped us in our marriage not to let situations come between us. We always work together to make our way through what ever may be bothering us.
Our Road to Adoption
We first started trying to start our family in July 2005. The first couple months we didn’t think much about not becoming pregnant, but as the months went on we were becoming more and more disappointed. Right around the 1 year mark we decided to seek fertility treatment. We went to the Dr. and after several tests he concluded that there was nothing wrong with us and it should be easy to get pregnant. They quickly started us on meds and set a date for our first treatment. We were so optimistic! 3 weeks later we realized it did not work so we decided to try again, once again ending in disappointment. Because of the high cost of these procedures we decided to stop and continue trying on our own. After about two years of no success we decided to talk to our Doctor. This was a different Dr and he decided to put me on clomid for a couple months to see if that would change anything. We did that for 3 months but nothing changed. We then went to see another fertility Dr. in Tucson. We had heard great things about him and were highly optimistic again. He again ran tests and the only thing he found wrong was the fact that I had a small case of endometriosis. They did the surgery to get that all out and continued doing 2 more treatments. After both of these failing, we decided it was time to seek other options. We had talked about adoption in the past and after much prayer and consideration we decided that adoption was the route for us. Although the road of infertility is a hard one and it is very physically, mentally and emotionally draining, we feel that it has brought us closer together. We learned to truly depend on each other for everything. During the 9 years of trying to conceive we have had lots of time to spend together and really get to know each other. This has helped us know each others dreams and desires about how to raise a family.
Becoming parents - We can not even begin to explain how excited we were to welcome our sweet daughter into our family in 2012. After getting certified to adopt and several contacts, we were finally contacted by our daughters birth mother. She was only 5 weeks pregnant when she first contacted us and 11 weeks pregnant when she asked us to parent her sweet bundle of joy. We enjoyed getting to know her and loving and supporting her through most of her pregnancy. The day Jordan was born was the best day of our lives! It was mixed with more emotions then I can say but it was amazing! She was perfect and had us wrapped around her finger from the moment we laid eyes on her. She has since filled each day with so much love and happiness. She has the sweetest birth mother who we love so much. She is now another branch to our family. Our dream finally came true thanks to this amazing women.
We both feel it is important to have contact with the birth parents. Whether that be through email, letters and photos or phone calls, we are open for discussion on whatever the birth parents feel they need to help them through this process. Although we will love our children unconditional just as if there were our own, our children will always know that they have birth parents who also love them very very much! It is very important to us that our children know where they came from and know the sacrifice that their loving parents made in order for our miracle to come true.
Again, we would like to thank you for looking at our profile. We pray for you that you may be able to find the answers that you need as you consider all your options. We are grateful for this opportunity and if it be right, we look forward to meeting you someday.
Brandon, Jessica and Jordan
