We are Cole and Courtney. Adoption has always been our first choice for building our family. We value our time together, our family, and being supportive to people in our community. We married in 2017, a year after moving to North Carolina.

We have built a strong group of friends that have become more like family. We often host gatherings at our home where we try out new recipes and play tabletop games. When it’s nice out, we enjoy walking around the neighborhood with our two dogs, Chloe and Liam. When we have a free weekend, we like to find ourselves trying new restaurants in the area or enjoying local music events. We also like to attend musicals at our local performing arts center.

Courtney is a preschool teacher, working with four and five year olds. She uses her creativity and interest in nature to teach her students in a fun and interactive way. Courtney’s hobbies tend to revolve around creating things. She finds new ways to be creative with all manner of art and loves to attempt new recipes. Cole works in IT as a Linux system administrator. He also enjoys creating things, but through programming rather than crafts. He likes to tell collaborative stories through tabletop role playing games with his friends. At the end of the day, you can find him going for a long run on the nearby trails.

We would like to thank you for taking the time to read about us.
