Hello! Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know us and our family. We commend you for your strength and bravery in taking the steps to find a forever home for your child. We are so thankful you have chosen life for your precious baby and hope you can see through our story that it is our desire to provide a loving home to your child.
We are Brent and Erin, and we live in Southern California. We are a loving and hard-working couple, devoted to God and to each other. We have been married for 8 years and have one child. Our daughter, Rooney, is 5 years old.
We met at a college alumni event (we both went to Penn State) and it wasn’t long after that we began dating. At that time, I (Erin) had been recently diagnosed with cancer and was going through treatment. Despite my diagnosis, Brent diligently pursued me. We dated through surgeries and physical therapy, all the while talking about the future and what a family might look like. From the beginning of our relationship, adoption was always on our hearts and something that we felt called to do. We faced many challenges early in our relationship, and we’re so grateful for how those challenges have strengthened our relationship and brought us closer together.
Brent proposed while we were on a visit to Penn State. He even had our school mascot, The Nittany Lion, knock on the door, ring in hand! It was such an unforgettable experience, and we’ve been creating beautiful memories like that ever since. We were married in July of 2011 on the beach surrounded by our family and friends. It was a beautiful day and the perfect start of our adventure together. Since then we have created an amazing life and our love for one another has only grown through the years as we have built our family and made a home together!
After working separately for several years (Brent in the corporate world and Erin in the classroom), we both decided to quit our jobs and start our own publishing company in 2015. Since then, we have built a successful business that allows us to work alongside each other. We make a great team!
Brent grew up in Maryland with his mom, dad, and younger sister. He spent his childhood playing sports, drawing, and exploring in the woods.
Energetic and creative, Brent is a true connector and loves bringing people together. He has a heart for service and helping others in all areas of life.
Erin was born and raised in Southern California. She is the eldest of two daughters. She enjoyed a lot of activities growing up, but softball captured her heart early. Erin went to college on a softball scholarship, majoring in Journalism and Spanish. She worked full-time as a teacher and mentor before leaving the classroom to work in the family business alongside Brent. Passionate and fearless, Erin has a heart for encouraging and helping women of all ages to know their value and live on purpose.
About Our Home
We live in a beautiful, friendly beach town in north county San Diego. Our home has lots of space to play, and we enjoy spending time together there as a family. We love being able to take quick little trips to the beach to dig in the sand and watch the sunsets. Some of our favorite activities are traveling, taking trips to the beach, camping in our travel trailer, watching movies, and spending time with each other and our daughter. We are very involved in our local church, and we serve on the youth and kids ministry teams as a family.
We have a desire to grow our family and have the capacity, both in our home and our hearts, to love and care for another child. We want to open our home to a child whose birth mother has made the courageous decision of adoption.
Thank you for reading our profile and considering us. Your child will be welcomed into our home with open arms, support and unconditional love by us and our daughter.
We are praying for you daily, and it’s our desire that you find peace knowing your child will be cared for and protected in a loving, happy home.
Brent, Erin and Rooney
