Meet David & Stacy B.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about us as you go through perhaps the most challenging phase in your life.
David was born in Virginia and has wonderful childhood memories of road trips and holidays with his younger sister, mom, and dad. After working hard in college, David was accepted into the Peace Corps, and following two years of service completed a Master of Public Administration degree.
What I love about David, by Stacy: David is an amazing husband, an extraordinary person who makes those around him feel loved. “My better half” is probably the most patient individual I know. He’s very involved in our family life. I know that David is my life partner and will be there for his family through all the ups, downs, dull moments, and exciting events in life.
Chilling with Pound Cake
Stacy was also born in Virginia, the youngest of four daughters. Her dad (“papa”) become a dairy farmer full-time and so her identity was shaped by the agricultural life. In college, Stacy studied agricultural economics. She too served in the Peace Corps for two years in Guinea, West Africa, to take on new challenges.
What I love about Stacy, by David: Stacy is a loving, caring person and a wonderful wife. She is smart, funny, and personable. From the day I met her, I knew that she was passionate about making the world a better place by putting others first. No matter what, Stacy gives her fullest love and attention to everything she does. She completes me.
For our Mystery Trip in 2019, we went to Las Vegas and took a day trip to the southern rim of the Grand Canyon.
We love to go places… We both studied abroad – David in Lille, France, and Stacy in Bloemfontein, South Africa – and we continue to travel throughout the country and to places abroad. We are used to being outside our comfort zones including traveling where English is not spoken. Visiting different countries has exposed us to wonderful people, food, and cultures.
…but home is where the heart is. In 2018, we moved from Fairfax, Virginia, to Parma, Ohio. Although we were concerned about the cold and snowy winters, we have acclimated nicely to the local weather. We appreciate how Northeast Ohio embraces winter sports. We also love that our local recreational center has an indoor aquatic center so that we can enjoy the pool and hot tub year-round. Northeast Ohio feels like the best version of home we could have imagined.
In closing, we would like to acknowledge all the emotions you are going through and thank you for going down an uncertain path with people you have never met. We know we are not perfect, and we do not pretend to be, but we will love and raise your child giving them the best life we can possibly can.

Our Family At a Glance
We live in Parma, Ohio. We’ve been married since 2015. We work as an FHA Asset Manager (Stacy) and a Payroll Tax Analyst (David). Things we love to do together include hiking, chilling with our cat and dog, traveling to new places, completing random house or art projects, reading fiction and fantasy novel series, going to our weekly potluck gathering with friends, and preparing and eating daily meals. We believe that open adoption, where we also open our lives to the birthparent, would be the best path for everyone involved.
