The Story Of Us
We are eager to grow our family and can't wait for another little one to join us!
Hi, we're Anthony & Breanne.
We both attended the same small engineering college during the same time, but our story does not start there. Of course we never met during college - that would be too easy! We met in Canada of all places during a mutual friend's wedding. It was there where we had an instant connection, and had our "You had me at Hello" moment. After several years of dating, a move to Texas for our first jobs, and the addition of two sweet adopted fur babies, we tied the knot in Steamboat Springs, Colorado summer of 2012. Fast forward seven more years....we have traveled often, purchased our first home, perfected our BBQ rib recipe and most meaningfully started our family through the gift of adoption with our son Brooks. We are eager to grow our family and can't wait for another little one to join us!
He certainly is not a sidelines kind of Dad, but loving, devoted and completely hands on.
Anthony was born and raised in Colorado as the middle child of a family of five. His parents still live in Colorado where we have the opportunity to visit often. There is never a dull moment when spending time with Anthony's side of the family. His mom's side is Italian which means you never leave hungry, and your stomach always hurts from eating too much and laughing too hard. Growing up Anthony was an active soccer player. Not only did he excel on the field, but also academically. Starting at a young age he was recognized for his character and academic achievements by his teachers. Anthony went on to pursue his engineering degree and even obtained a masters. As a career, Anthony works as a petroleum engineer. In his free time Anthony enjoys watching sports, building his library, learning how to cook, and spending time outdoors either by the bbq or pool. One of Anthony's greatest joys has been becoming a Dad. From the moment he laid eyes on Brooks he instantly fell in love. He certainly is not a sidelines kind of Dad, but loving, devoted and completely hands on. Anthony has so much love to give. He can't wait to meet Brooks' future sibling. A FEW FUN FACTS about Anthony Studied abroad in college and learned how to speak German. Guten Tag! Can't live without Mexican Food - Taco Tuesday should be every day of the week! Loves snowboarding and cycling - he's from Colorado. Famous for his deep fried turkey. A MUST on Thanksgiving - yum! Responds to the name Unca or Stephanie (both names given to him by his nephew, Andrew)
She's often described as fun, loving, and thoughtful - all things that make her a great Mom.
Breanne was born in Arizona, but moved to the family farm in Nebraska at a young age. She is the youngest child of a family of five. Her parents still reside on the farm which has been in her family for 100 years! Growing up in rural Nebraska meant lots of community and school involvement. During her school years Breanne was involved in basketball, volleyball, track, drama, speech, band, choir, you name it she was active in it! Academically she always excelled (Math and Science are her jam!) and even graduated as class valedictorian. Upon graduating high school Breanne knew she wanted to pursue an engineering degree and went on to do just that. Breanne now works as a petroleum engineer. She enjoys pinteresting dinner recipes, lounging by the pool, and planning and coordinating the next family trip. Breanne loves being a Mom. Her planner instinct is always anticipating new activities, foods, and experiences everyone can enjoy together. She's often described as fun, loving, and thoughtful - all things that make her a great Mom. Breanne loved growing up with siblings, and can't wait for Brooks to earn his big brother title. A FEW FUN FACTS about Breanne Grew up on a farm in Nebraska which meant she was always exploring the pastures, playing with the farm animals, and eating straight from the garden. Played multiple sports in high school and went on to play volleyball collegiately. Musically inclined - can play piano, saxophone and can sing! Alto for life. Famous for her guacamole recipe, and is borderline addicted to chips and salsa. Is the go-to friend for hair and make-up. Hello Smokey eye. Meet Brooks Brooks was born in December of 2017 and without a doubt was the best Christmas gift we have ever received. From the moment we laid eyes on him our world became a brighter place. Brooks has such a sweet, laid back, loving disposition all rolled into a bit of an entertainer. He certainly loves to wave and say hello to everyone he meets. Adventure might be his middle name as action packed days are his absolute favorite. Story time with friends, park play dates, and aquarium visits exude joy from his little self. Books and music are daily musts. He hasn't met a food he doesn't like. Let's just say, we might have a foodie on our hands. We can't wait to watch Brooks earn his big brother badge. Oh the adventures that are sure to come.
