We truly support each other every step of the way which not only makes us husband and wife, but best friends.
We just genuinely enjoy being with each other and spending time together.
We are Michael and Kassandra. You can call us Mike and Kassie if you'd like. We first met in 2013 right before we both deployed to Afghanistan. We were both stationed together, in the Air Force, in Las Vegas. Throughout the deployment we both grew very fond of one another. Initially we were both nervous to start dating so we pretended we didn't want a relationship, but before we knew it, we moved in together. In 2016, Michael proposed on a boat while we were whale watching. To better describe our personalities, when he proposed (holding the ring) Kassandra said, "are you serious?", and Michael responded "well, I do have a ring in my hand." We got married 2 months after Michael proposed, with 2 of our closest friends in attendance. To describe our marriage, the first thing that comes to mind is "best friend," and the second would be "fun". We truly support each other every step of the way which not only makes us husband and wife, but best friends. We can always count on one another regardless of what is going on around us. With fun in mind, because we enjoy life together, you will typically see us laughing or smiling. We just genuinely enjoy being with each other and spending time together.
How I See Michael: By Kassandra
The thing I truly love about Michael is that he is very empathetic towards others.
Michael is my best friend; he has been there for me holding my hand through every struggle we have gone through with infertility. Most of the time he will make me smile or laugh to brighten my day. I truly am glad to have him in my life; he lights up any room that he walks into with his silliness or smile. The thing I truly love about Michael is that he is very empathetic towards others. If he sees anyone upset, he feels their pain and will do whatever he can to make them feel better. He is such a genuinely great person that you can depend on and he will never expect anything in return.
How I See Kassandra: By Michael
Whenever I am having a tough time with something or some situation, she is always there loving and caring for me no matter what.
Kassandra is my lighthouse. Whenever I come up with any type of plan, no matter how wild it is, Kass tends to be the one that brings me back to reality. She is very detail oriented and helps me build plans that will actually work and forces me to think about both sides of a situation before I dive headfirst into the plan. Together we make a really good team. Whenever I am having a tough time with something or some situation, she is always there loving and caring for me no matter what. Kass has helped me grow as a person in ways that I couldn't comprehend before her because she is always ensuring that both of us are taking care of ourselves both physically, and more importantly, mentally.
What We Enjoy
You are always in our thoughts and hope that you find peace in whatever decision you make.
Thank you for taking a moment to learn about us, our family, and our lives.
We are both very into fitness, mostly because we want to enjoy a healthy life and be here for our families as long as we can. We try to travel, at the very least out-of-state, about once or twice a year. We love food so we like to try new restaurants whenever we can. Though we love the outdoors, we usually save outdoor activities until fall or winter as Texas is too hot for us during the summer. While we are home, we love spoiling our fur babies and playing with them every chance we get and showing them new tricks! We are both in school. Michael is getting his bachelor's degree and Kassandra is working on her master's, so we are really focused on accomplishing those goals within the next year. Michael loves to play golf with his friends, and though he isn't very good, he does have a lot of fun. He is also involved in and enjoys jiu-jitsu. Kassandra enjoys all things beauty and taking on DIY projects around the house. Both of us love to keep busy, but our favorite thing to do is hangout on the couch and cuddle with our fur babies. Thank You Thank you for taking a moment to learn about us, our family, and our lives. While you are trying to figure out the best option for you and your baby, we appreciate you for taking the time to consider us as prospective adoptive parents. We hope that when the time comes to make a decision, whether you choose us, another family, or decide to parent yourself, know that we understand you only want what is best for your child. We want to assure you that we will respect you at whatever level of openness and contact that you want to have with your child. You are always in our thoughts and hope that you find peace in whatever decision you make.
