Hi! We are Blake and Brett. Thank you so much for taking the time to look at our page. We have been together for 13 years and met through mutual friends when we were both about to embark on a new journey in life. Brett was off to chase his dream of becoming a flight attendant and Blake was looking to relocate to finish his college degree. It only took one meeting for us to realize that we had found something very special in each other and we were inseparable from that day forward. We have lived in several major cities together before ultimately finding a place that felt perfect for us to call home and settle down in. Brett works as a flight attendant and Blake as a director of talent operations for a major fitness chain. We both have a passion for hospitality as we thoroughly enjoy being able to be the best part of someone else's day.
While we did not know each other in childhood, we grew up in neighboring small towns and were each raised in homes filled with love, laughter and strong family values. Each being one of several siblings and now uncles to a big clan of nieces and nephews, we have always dreamed of being able to create a family of our own one-day.
We both grew up in upstate New York with strong family values and traditions. Brett was raised Methodist and Blake was raised Catholic. Today, we are both agnostic and plan to raise our child based on our current beliefs. While religion does not play a part in our lives, we live our lives based on the family values we were brought up with.
Both of our families still reside in upstate New York and we are very close to them, making the trip home several times a year in addition to vacationing annually with each of our families and holding on to holiday traditions close to our heart.
We have an 8-year-old cockapoo named Khloe. We rescued her from a local shelter when she was one year old and she is the light of our lives. She is playful, gentle and a true lover of all humans. We love to spend time at the park or going on long walks with her during the warmer months of the year. She is an important member of our family and is currently the true head of our household.
We live in a 4 bedroom 3-bath house on a quiet street with great neighbors. Our house is located within a 5-minute walk of two different parks with a lot of recreational activities. There are bikes trails, tennis courts and a farmer's market located within walking distance of our home. We are a short drive from the local elementary, middle and high school which are all rated among the highest in the area. Equidistant from Manhattan and the Jersey shore, our town offers a variety of short distance day trips and cultural experiences.
I am a flight attendant for a major US airline. I love to travel and spend my downtime with friends and family. I enjoy working on outdoor projects around the house, cooking and hosting friends and family in our home. Being a flight attendant, I am always looking for new places to travel and experience new cities and cultures. This is something that I cannot wait to share with our future child one day.
I work in the fitness industry as the Director of Talent Operations for a national brand. I moonlight as an interior designer and home renovator with myself and my home as my only current client. Growing up in upstate New York, I love all things outdoors and am always ready for an adventure. I hope to share these passions with my child bringing an adventurous spirit into their life.
We are very interested in establishing a relationship that feels best for both parties. We are open to communication with you through letters and pictures as well as an annual visit at the family picnic offered.
We plan to keep an open dialogue with our child about you stemming from as early in their life as they are able to understand. We will let him or her know that you love them very much but chose to make a decision to better their life and give them all of the opportunities in the world that they deserve. We will share with them how brave and courageous you were to make this choice and that your love helped our family become whole through this decision.

Thank you so much for viewing our profile. We want you to know that your child will be surrounded by love from a large family of adoring grandparents, 8 aunts and uncles and 10 cousins who are ready and excited to welcome them with open arms. We have a desire to explore the world and through Brett’s career, we have been afforded the luxury of travel and adventure. Among the many things we hope to enrich a child’s life with, we want to share this love of travel and adventure with your child and bring curiosity and exploration to their lives. We both celebrate every experience that is gifted to us and want to offer not only culture but also create a sense of acceptance and inclusion to all that the world has to offer.
We have so much love to give and look forward to providing a warm home for your child founded in happiness, compassion and acceptance. We hope to be able to pass on our values and raise a child who is respectful of all, prioritizes forgiveness over judgment and values the bonds of family and friendship over everything. We hope to parent with compassion and reason and create a lifelong bond with your child that honors the opportunity we will have been given. We know this decision is one of the hardest of your life, but we hope you can take even a small piece of solace in knowing that we will do our very best to give your child the world in every way that we can.
