Emily and Devin
Emily and Devin
Emily and I met in Gainesville, FL in 2005 and started dating after college. We were both working in the healthcare industry and enjoyed a long-distance relationship between Tampa and Gainesville for a few years filled with travel including beach-trips, University of Florida football games. In 2009, Devin’s job took us to Warsaw, IN for two years where we got engaged and married. Shortly after our wedding, we relocated to Nashville, TN for Emily to attend graduate school at Vanderbilt University. We quickly fell in love with Nashville, TN and have called it home ever since. Nashville is an incredible city to raise children in and we love that the city has many activities to offer while still giving us plenty of opportunity to enjoy the outdoors as a family.
Emily and I come from smaller families, but we have the most amazing friends and extended families. We vacation with the same two families every year and these are the cousins/nieces/nephews we LOVE! Holidays are always filled with parties and traditions with our loved ones. We are also very active in our community; Church, School and Sports have provided some our best friends. These people are important to us and are present in our lives in the most wonderful way.
Emily is nurturing, loving and smart. She grew up in Florida with a large extended family. She played tennis and swam in high school. She went to college and graduate school on full scholarships. She has had a very successful career and now works in healthcare. Most important to her is balancing work and life and her profession provides her with lots of flexibility. The single most important thing in her life is her family.
Devin loves to be outside and active. He grew up in Florida with a smaller family and always wanted a big fun family. Devin went to college and graduate school in Florida. He is now the president of a medical device firm. Devin loves to laugh and have fun. He is always laughing and playing. Any time he is not working is spent loving on his family and always going out of his way to make every day special.
We have three sons: Britt (5), Davis (4), and Grant (2). We are not able to have more naturally and felt that adoption is a great way to complete our family. Each of our sons is unique; Britt is sensitive and loves music and reading, Davis is funny and loves animals, Grant is tough and loves sports and eating. Our children are the biggest blessing in our lives. We have told them our family is growing and they could not be more happy or supportive, they have been telling everyone at school how excited they are! All three boys cannot wait to welcome and love their new sibling!
