All About Jeff & Bradley

Hello! We are Bradley and Jeff and we want to thank you for taking time to learn more about us. We live in rural Indiana with our 4 year old son Liam, our dog Hudson, and our cat Brooks. Bradley is a firefighter/paramedic and a family nurse practitioner and Jeff works as an event planner. We enjoy spending time together and laughing with our close-knit group of friends and family. Family is a huge part of both of our lives and we love having lots of love surrounding us and our family. We can’t wait to add another little blessing and to watch our family grow!

Why Adoption?

We are excited to expand our family. Shortly after adopting our son Liam, we knew that we still had room in our hearts and our home for another child. We love being parents and can’t wait for another opportunity to show love to a child.

Family & Home

We currently live on 10 acres in East Central Indiana. It is not unusual to wake up to deer or other animals in our front yard. There is a creek that runs through the property that has become a great play area for the family and a river within a short walk for summer swimming. The rest of the property is surrounded by farmland, which allows for the best view of the stars at night.

Family is a huge part of both of our lives and have large extended families on both sides. Jeff’s family mostly lives within a couple of miles of us, with his parents and brother’s family living a short distance through the woods. Jeff’s brother and his wife have 3 daughters and the oldest loves to watch kids. Bradley’s parents live in the same county and a short drive away. His sister and her husband have 3 children, 2 boys and 1 girl, which are all very active with sports. We love having family nearby and they can’t wait to add a little one to our family. 

We also stay in close communication with Liam’s birth mother. We’ve even gotten to know some of her family – which we consider family of our own! We talk almost weekly via text or FaceTime and get together frequently for holidays, meals, and park play dates.

How others describe me

Bradley (by Jeff): Bradley is one of the most compassionate and hard working people that I know. His kind heart immediately drew me to him when we met. Bradley’s determination and need to continuously learn blows me away on a daily basis. He loves finding the best deal when grocery shopping and his coupon collection always comes in handy! He’s definitely the handyman around our farm who can fix (almost) anything. Bradley is the best Papa to Liam and I love seeing them interact.

Jeff (by Bradley): Jeff has a truly genuine and authentic personality, but can still make you laugh at any moment. He dedicates his days to making sure Liam and I are taken care of, while still balancing owning his own businesses. He knows how to take me or Liam from crying to laughing in an instant. He is a social media guru, which allows for us to stay in constant communication with Liam’s birth mother. His knowledge of pop culture allows us to have the BEST halloween costumes. He is a kid at heart and loves spending time with Liam. I am thankful everyday for his being the foundation of our family and an amazing daddy.

Liam (by Jeff and Bradley): Liam is the light of our lives! He’s a smart, energetic ball of fun. He’s been an amazing addition to our family. He loves being active, playing outdoors and riding his Power Wheels car. His best friend is our dog Hudson. Liam loves the time that he gets to spend with his birth mother and we enjoy seeing their relationship grow as he gets older. He’s excited to be a big brother and will be the best helper with a new baby!

how we met

How We Met

We met online almost 10 years ago and immediately knew our relationship was special. We soon realized that we grew up in the same community (but had never met) and had several mutual friends/connections. After dating for four years, we got married on Makapu’u Beach in beautiful Hawaii.

Advice to Future Child

Don’t be afraid to be judged by others - this means you are living your life to the fullest. Always allow yourself to be be vulnerable, be courageous, and be you. Vulnerability gives you confidence and strength and allows you to build stronger relationships. Choose kindness and love and surround yourself with others who choose the same.

Perspectives on Open Adoption

We are huge advocates for open adoption. After experiencing an open adoption with our son Liam’s birth mother. We think it is important for our child to know their story from a young age. We are supportive and grateful of a birth mother’s decision and plan to honor her wishes on openness within our adoption.
