RUSTIN AND AIMEE
Hi! Thanks for checking us out! We met in college and have been married for 8 years. Rustin is a college professor and Aimee is a physical therapist. We are an active couple that enjoy many outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, and bike riding. We love to travel together, favorite spots are San Francisco, New York, and Mexico. We are both sports fans and attend college games regularly. Extended family lives nearby and we spend time with them frequently.
Aimee on Rustin
Rustin is extremely charismatic, has a personality that is inviting, and he has never met a stranger (a trait that at times drives me insane). He is the hardest working person I have ever met and he will be an incredible father. He is extremely driven, something that I and his students greatly admire. He loves to build things and has quite the wood working shop built in our basement. He created a beautiful, long dining room table for our new home where we have celebrated holidays and enjoyed family dinners. He is funny, athletic, supportive, and way more adventurous than I will ever be. He puts me ahead of himself every day and I know he will do the same with our kids. There is no one on this planet I would rather parent with.
Rustin on Aimee
Aimee has a heart bigger than most. She deeply cares for her patients, friends, and most importantly her family. Aimee has a very large family with over 20 first cousins. I am still trying to remember all their names. She is an amazing cook who is never afraid to try new meals. Only once have I not been able to eat her cooking (the homemade spaghetti sauce was so gross). I knew early in our relationship that she was going to be the mother of my children and would teach them virtues, such as respect, honesty, and faith. I am continually amazed by how lucky I am to have found Aimee and her family. Every day I get to live, love, and laugh with my best friend. I know Aimee will pour her heart and soul into being a great mom.
We live very close to Aimee’s parents and therefore see her family on a very regular basis. We both come from large families with multiple cousins. Every Sunday we eat dinner with Aimee’s parents and siblings on their property outside the city, something that Rustin loves. We vacation every summer to the beach and spend weekends on the lake.
We have two dogs, Ani, a basset/golden retriever mix, and Jaxson, a basset/pointer mix. They enjoy long days of sleeping, short walks, and going out to Aimee’s parents’ house every Sunday to run around with their family dog. They love to be around children and we know they are going to be so excited to have a brother or sister to play with.
We recently bought our first house, a 100+ year old home in a cute neighborhood just over the river from Aimee’s hometown. It is big enough to grow our family and has a fenced in backyard to play in. We have put a lot of work into fixing it up and making it ours. Making meals in the kitchen and Rustin grilling out in the backyard is one of our favorite things to do. We live in a diverse community near a high school and middle school, where it is not uncommon to see kids walking to school. We love our neighbors and enjoy walking Ani and Jaxson around our community. We genuinely enjoy spending time together. Whether it be at home, out with friends, or going out to breakfast every Friday morning before work, a tradition we started several years ago.
More than anything, we want you to know that we will love your child unconditionally. We will devote our lives to providing all the love, stability, and joy we can offer. We promise to always tell him or her where they came from and that you made the ultimate sacrifice for them. We promise to tell them that you are strong and an incredible person, someone that will always remain a part of them.
Regardless of your decision to pick us or another family, we are thinking of you, praying for you, and sending you strength as you make this difficult decision. If you choose us, we promise to surround your child with incredible family, insatiable love, and overwhelming encouragement. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us
