We’re Luke and Brianna. Thank you for viewing our profile and considering including our family as part of your life journey, and giving us the gift of adopting your child. We cannot imagine what you are going through, but already know that you are brave and strong – and we are so thankful for that. We are grateful for the love you are demonstrating by considering an adoption plan. We want you to know that we will be devoted to care for, nurture and love him or her unconditionally.
Luke grew up in BC and Brianna grew up in Ontario. We met in 2013 in Haiti while both doing aid work. We spent 9 months working alongside each other, but it only took us a few weeks to know that we wanted to be together! We eventually married and moved to South Surrey, BC for Luke’s job and to be close to family.
We have been married for two years and have a very loving, supportive relationship. We can rely on each other for encouragement, guidance and support in whatever we’re facing.
We love to spend time with friends and family – vacations at the cottage in Ontario with Brianna’s family or in the mountains of BC with Luke’s family. We have traveled a lot in our lives – for both work and pleasure, and have enjoyed experiencing many different countries, cultures and languages. We have been to over 50 countries combined!
On days off, we love to get outdoors – for walks, hikes, skiing, kayaking, boating or just sitting at the beach near our home.
We have always wanted to adopt, even talking about it when we first started dating. We are excited to grow our family in this way and have the full support of our family and friends.
Luke is the middle child of three and grew up in a loving home in a small town in BC with his parents and sisters and had many aunts and uncles, cousins and grandparents close by. He is now the fun uncle to 8 nieces and nephews. He is very family oriented and loves spending time with his parents, sisters and their families.
After graduating from university, Luke worked internationally as a security advisor for aid organizations. A few years after meeting Brianna in Haiti, Luke decided to settle down in Canada and became an RCMP officer and works just outside of Vancouver. He loves his job, but also loves his time off!
Some of the things that Brianna loves about Luke are: his easygoing nature, his loving personality, the way he makes her and everyone else laugh in almost any situation and his generosity to others.
Brianna is also the middle child of three. She grew up in a friendly rural Ontario town with her parents and siblings. They spent family vacations at their cottage or visiting grandparents and cousins in different parts of the province. She now has 2 young nephews who call her “Auntie Bri-Bri”, as well as 6 nieces and nephews through marriage. Brianna is very close to her family, talking and texting them everyday, although separated by distance.
Brianna studied at McMaster University to become a doctor. She is now a family and emergency physician in British Columbia. After finishing her schooling, she spent some time overseas working in medical missions and met Luke on one of those trips.
Some of the things that Luke loves about Brianna are: her compassion and care for others, her adventurous spirit and her loyalty to family and friends.
Our Christian faith is important to both of us and as such, we attend church regularly and are involved in a community group and volunteer activities in our area.
We own a 3-level, 3-bedroom home in a friendly neighbourhood in South Surrey, British Columbia. There are playgrounds, schools and park nearby – not to mention the ocean, beaches and mountains!
We have close friends with young children and a great church community nearby.
We’re committed to creating a relationship that works for everyone and that ensures your child knows you and your love for them. We are open to sending updates and meeting in person at your discretion. We will teach our future child the important role you play in their life story.
Thank you for taking the time to read our profile and all the best on this huge decision you are making!
