Patrick and I both grew up in Salem and continue to call Salem home. Because Patrick and I are only a few months apart in age, we've experienced most everything in our adult lives together - we graduated college together (different schools), we were poor together, we bought our first home together...all of this prepared us to become special needs parents together. We were 23 years old when we married in September of 2005, which seems so young now looking back, but I wouldn't have it any other way. Ten years and counting!

We welcomed our first daughter, Aubrey in July of 2009. She's a spunky, opinionated, outgoing, and wicked smart six year old. She keeps us on our toes!
