Hello!

We are Ryan and Brianna.

Thank you for taking the time to read about our family. We want you to know most of all that we would love your child unconditionally and are committed to providing all the support, security and joy that our family can offer. We always want your child to know where they came from and recognize the sacrifice that you made for them. They will be loved by our family and friends, and will always know the love you have for them.

Here is a snapshot of our lives so far- We have been married for 6 years and met at an awkward school mixer in California. We moved to Oklahoma in 2016 and live close to both sets of our grandparents that are very active in our lives. We had stillborn twin boys in 2015, which is what made us start to look into adoption. We were able to have a son, Lincoln, 3 years ago, but pregnancy is a very difficult experience for Brianna with the loss of the twins so we are not having any more biological children.

We have an awesome church family that has quite a few adoptive families. Our friend group has 14 children in it, and we get together with them at least once a week for the kids to play. Our community of friends and family are so supportive and very excited about our family growing through adoption.

Ryan is from Oklahoma. He is a talkative introvert, works at a bank, and enjoys hiking with Lincoln and playing board games with friends. Brianna is from California originally. She works for a nonprofit organization that helps children in other countries, drinks too much coffee, enjoys traveling to new places and watching “Friends” reruns.

Lincoln is a silly kid. He likes PJ Masks, playing board games and being outside. He is always asking for a brother or sister, and we are so excited at the possibility of having another child to love! As a family we spend time outside at parks and hiking, going to OSU football games and exploring new places together.

Again, thank you for taking the time to consider us as a family for your child! We are praying for you-

Ryan and Brianna
