A Little About Us
We met when we were 16 years old and have been high school sweethearts ever since. We were introduced to each other through mutual friends at a bowling alley. It was rock n bowl night and Robyn wrote her phone number on Josh's arm in glow paint, however the next day Josh couldn't read it! Luckily it all worked out! We were married on a chilly October day in 2011. It rained, snowed, and we had our first frost of the season. This year marks 19 years together as a couple. We are each other's best friends and balance each other perfectly. We would like to start off by thanking you for taking the time to consider us to raise your child. We are humbled by your courage and strength in taking this journey to choose adoption for your baby. We promise to love, nurture and give your child a warm, stable home with lots of family and friends that will surround them with love. We would love to maintain openness, we want you to be a part of your child’s journey through life. Your child will always know where he/she came from and the sacrifice you made.
Our Family Life
We love spending our weekends being around our family and friends. Robyn has a close relationship with her younger brother who along with his wife live about 5 minutes away. Her parents live close by as well. Robyn has a close relationship with her aunt whom she sees weekly as well. They enjoy weekly family dinners together. Josh’s family is huge! Josh has a close relationship with his Grandma, his aunt and his extended family. All of our families are eagerly awaiting us to add to our family. Weekends are usually spent with his dad tackling home projects around our house. Sadly, Josh’s mom passed away when he was 14. Josh also lost a younger brother about 10 years ago. Josh also has a step- sister, brother in law and two nieces whom he spends time with. Josh also has a new niece who we just welcomed to our family last August. We are known as Uncle Josh and Auntie Robyn to many of our friends young children. Our friends are super excited to welcome a new baby into our group.
We love celebrating every birthday, tradition or milestone is huge in our home! Robyn loves to decorate the house for the holidays and is usually found with a Christmas movie on. We love going to the beach, and love taking little getaways for the weekend exploring new places around us. We love being outdoors and always have some little project on the go. We love to travel! We try to plan one trip abroad once a year. We enjoy travelling with Robyn’s brother and sister in law and also friends of ours. Our favourite place so far has to be Disney World. Josh enjoys going to hockey games and he plays in a men’s golf league every Thursday night in the summer months.
Josh’s occupation is a Farm Supervisor, and he loves his job. He is currently in training to become upper management at the farm. Robyn works in the food processing industry part time and runs our small home business as well. In October 2016 we started our small business which took off! Together we create custom, personalized rustic home decor. We love being out in our workshop creating beautiful pieces for our clients to put in their homes. Robyn will be a stay at home mom dedicating her days to raising our children.
We live in Beautiful Norfolk County on an acre of property that backs on to a farmer’s field of pumpkins! Fall is our favourite season and living in the country is a bonus during the autumn months! We have 5 chickens on our property who provide us with eggs daily. We tried to name them, but it is hard to tell them apart, so we call them our ” Ladies”. Robyn would have more animals if she could and is trying to convince Josh that ducks are the next logical choice. We share our home with our golden retriever Oakley, Max and Milo- Our tabby cats and a dwarf rabbit Jersey. We will see if her convincing works! We love to grow our own food from our gardens and our chickens especially love the extras they get! We enjoy living in a quiet, small town with schools, parks and lots of great activities and events year-round. Robyn loves getting involved in many activities especially ones involving games and crafts. Josh loves the farmers markets and county fairs.
Our Promise To You
We both cannot wait to become parents! Creating our family has been a long and difficult road. This year marks 10 years of trying to grow our family. Many years yearning to be called mom and dad have led us to this destination. We want to lead by example and teach our children to have kindness, patience, humility, and live life to its fullest with no regrets. We believe that a stable home is where children thrive. We are blessed with the ability to have Robyn stay home full time with our children. Family, community, education and strong work ethic are things we believe are important. We believe in an open adoption. We feel openness is extremely important for everyone involved, nothing is better than surrounding your child with more people who will love them. The lines of communication will always be open between us. Family comes in many shapes and sizes.
