Meet your family
Nathan & Valerie

View full profile

Hello! We are Nathan and Valerie, and we are from northeast Ohio. We started dating in 2010 while we attended architecture school and later got married in 2014. From the moment we met, we had a mutual love for going on adventures, family, laughter, faith, and creativity. We have been blessed with a wonderful supportive, loving family that has always been rooted in faith. When we struggled with infertility, through prayer and faith, we began our adoption journey. In 2021, we were blessed to adopt our son. From the moment we held our sweet little boy, he changed our lives forever.  His enthusiasm for life and learning new things has been so amazing to watch. He is so excited for a sibling to play and laugh with and can’t wait to be a big brother. We hold so much respect and admiration for his birth parents in their difficult decision and are eternally grateful for giving us the opportunity to be loving parents.

As a family, we spend so much of our time exploring the outdoors, being creative, making messes of anything and everything (much laughter is included!), and creating opportunities for our son to grow into the life-loving, non-stop giggling, and compassionate boy he is. After bringing him home, Valerie quickly made the decision to be a stay-at-home mom and has been so grateful to be there each day to help him grow, learn, and achieve new milestones. We are excited to raise another child and to watch our family experience more fun and learning as we enter the next chapter of our growing family.

We are honored by you including us as part of your life journey and for your consideration in giving us the gift to adopt. We cannot express how much gratitude we have for your courage and selfless act of love. We know you are a strong, brave woman and promise to honor your decision by providing a loving, supportive home filled with laughter and endless joy.
