Meet Vince & Claire G.
Hi! We’re Vince, Claire, Bailey, Kylie, and Vinny, and we are laid back… The most important things to us are God and family; and we looove to have fun! Our kid’s faves include jumping on the trampoline with Dad (daily), riding bikes at Grandma/pa’s (Sundays), making s’mores at Auntie’s, and popping popcorn and watching movies in Nana and Pawpaw’s bed (guaranteed popcorn in the sheets).
We have an enormous extended family (10 sets of aunts and uncles, 33 first cousins, and who knows how many seconds and thirds) and our favorite thing to do is get together. The kids love playing with “cousins” and we all love to eat, dance, make fun of each other, and just hang out.
As parents we are teaching our kids to love God, love each other, be good human beings, and enjoy life. We’ve been married 12 years, and on the night we made our engagement we agreed that we both wanted to adopt (Vince’s father adopted him, and it’s something Claire has always wanted to do since high school). Vince works as an engineer with Johnson & Johnson and Claire has a small cleaning business, but spends most of her time as a stay at home mom with the kiddos.
We are beyond excited to add a new member to our family, and we can’t wait to meet you! Our family promises that your angel will get all the attention (the kids are so excited), love (hug, kisses, snuggles), guidance, and care that we can give.
Our Family At a Glance
We live in the suburbs of Cincinnati, we are close to lots of shopping and the Cincinnati Zoo, but we pass a little horse farm on the way to our house and live right behind 90 acres of woods with deer and turkey roaming around, making it feel like we are way out there!
We were married in June of 2008, we had a big fat Catholic/German wedding with a live band and lots of dancing and partying at our reception!
Vince is a Medical Engineering Manager at Johnson and Johnson, and he is lucky enough to be working from home, which means we get to enjoy having the whole family together for a big breakfast before school! Claire has a small cleaning business, but is mostly a stay at home mom, who likes being “room mom” at school, family dinners, and playing games with the kiddos.
Our hobbies include hiking (parents only and as a family), kitchen dance parties on Friday nights, jumping on the trampoline, hanging by the pool all summer, riding the bike trail, traveling, and just trying new things!
We believe in making the most out of life and being happy! We believe that family comes first. Above all, God is in control so there’s no need to stress about the little stuff in life. We teach our kids to love and care for each other. We can’t wait to add our new addition, and join our families!
