Meet Max & Alyssa O.

Adoptive family


We are Max and Alyssa. We met in 2009, married in 2014, and spend our days telling jokes and giggling with each other. We live in a suburb close to Cincinnati where we love to visit restaurants, museums, and enjoy the woods and rivers surrounding the area. At home, we’re avid readers. We enjoy watching shows like The Office and Parks & Rec. Max is often working on home remodeling projects, and Alyssa loves tending the vegetable garden. We love to travel to new places; we’re working on visiting all 50 states. We’re totally National Park nerds, and hope to visit all of them in our lifetime! We look forward to sharing our love for nature with our future child, and dream of teaching them to fish, playing in the dirt, taking family walks in the woods, and enjoying wildlife with us. Our two dogs, Archer & Jango, bring us lots of laughter and are gentle with our many nieces and nephews.

Max has always desired to adopt, feeling the pull towards adoption ever since he was a teenager. Alyssa has dreamt of being a mom since she was young, and when fertility treatments proved unsuccessful, we both became hopeful and excited for the opportunity to adopt. We are so thankful for the opportunity to share our lives with you!
