First, we hope you are doing well during your pregnancy. We can’t begin to imagine how hard and overwhelming this decision is for you. We’re sending you the biggest hug right now. We hope that no matter what you decide, that you are surrounded by love, compassion, and support.
We’ve been together for 15 years! Married for almost 5! We asked some friends for a few words to describe us and they said: accepting and loving, caring, hardworking, ambitious, and fun. We live in a great diverse neighborhood, just a few minutes from downtown Cincy with our baby boy, Milo, + dog, Lily. We have the best neighbors and our own families are just minutes away, we spend a ton of time with them! All of Milo’s cousins adore him. We’re love going to all the parks, art museums, city flea, the zoo, smale park, + restaurants in OTR.
We’re full time wedding photographers and get to work together every day. We’ve been so privileged to work with so many amazing couples from all different backgrounds and are so blessed to get to spend such an important day with them. We’re incredibly fortunate that we actually get to travel for work and are so excited we now get to take our kid(s) with us on those trips!
Visiting Positano, Italy
We’ve actually always planned to adopt. Christy’s stepdad adopted her and her twin sister. She also has adopted siblings through kinship adoption. We became guardians of 2 of those siblings throughout their teen years! They’ve since graduated college and started their own families. We always knew adoption would be a part of our story, and later learned infertility was as well.
We adopted Milo in 2022 and he has been the biggest blessing to our lives. We’re so thankful, proud, and honored to be called his mom + dad, and so thankful for the open adoption we have with his bio parents. We truly love them so much. We’ve never been happier and being parents to him has been the most amazing thing we’ve ever done. We’re so excited to see him become a big brother, for him to have a sibling he can always relate to, that always understands him, and they both will always have that bond.
Fun at the pumpkin patch
From Christy about Josh: He’s super funny, handy and can literally fix anything. He has the biggest heart, and sweet tooth ever. He’s incredibly kind. He can be a bit quiet at first, but he’s never met a stranger. He’s so laidback and literally never raises his voice. He’s a great cook (thank goodness, because I’m not.) He’s vegetarian and won’t even kill a bug. Our son absolutely adores him. I thought I couldn’t love him more, and then I watched him become a dad. He is truly the best dad and is so hands on caring for Milo.
From Josh about Christy: She’s one of the smartest and hardest working people I know. She’s the mom of the family and friend group. Everyone reaches out to her for advice. She’s really organized when it comes to things like finances and work, but her closet is another story. Everyone that meets her wants to be her friend. She’s been like a mom to her younger siblings for so long, becoming a mom came so easy to her. She is the best mom to Milo. She’s so patient, loving, and caring.
We promise to love you + your child unconditionally. To raise them to have love + compassion for everyone, and to support them in all of their dreams. To be proud of who they are, where they came from, and that they can truly accomplish anything they want in life. We promise to honor their heritage, to expose them to diverse role models, to value their culture, and give them every opportunity to connect. We promise to have an open relationship, because we know from experience how important it is. We promise they will always know you and love you, and know not only the love you have for them, but the love we have for you too.

Our Family At a Glance
We live in St Bernard, just a few minutes from downtown Cincinnati.
We’ve been married since March 2019.
We work as wedding photographers.
Our hobbies include hiking, camping, kayaking, but consider ourselves city people at heart and love museums, concerts, the zoo, etc.
We believe that open adoption is so important, from our own experience. We’re thankful to have such a great and open relationship with Milo’s parents and we can’t wait to call another little baby and their family, part of our family too.
