Meet Shanna & Rob B.

Adoptive family

Dear Birthparent,

Thank you for being strong enough to consider this option. We are beyond grateful that you are looking at our profile and considering our family. We are Rob and Shanna Brokaw; we have been happily married for three years. We live in Dublin, Ohio, with our golden doodle Bailee.

Shortly after we were married, we attempted to start a family. Unfortunately, Shanna has something called recurrent loss which means her pregnancies have all ended in miscarriage. We want to share this with you because we understand things not going as planned and how heavy it weighs on your heart to make big decisions as a result.

Loving family

Before we were engaged, we discussed wanting to adopt. We always thought it would be something we did to complete our family, but God’s plan was even better. We are now hopeful to start our family with adoption instead and we are thankful that God has led us to you. We are extremely grateful for your strength and it is humbling that you would consider our family.

Rob is the glue to our family. He is relentless, organized and nothing can stop him once he sets his mind to something. He loves golfing and cannot wait to buy a toddler set of golf clubs. Before making the move to Cardinal Health, Rob used to be a dietitian because he loves helping other people achieve their goals. Rob is strongly considering staying at home and dedicating himself to the best job ever: being a dad.

Ready to adopt

Shanna has a bubbly personality that people have always been drawn to. It’s one of the many reasons she’s excelled at IT sales for the past 10 years. During her free time, she enjoys cooking, working out, and playing volleyball. She loves her family and friends fiercely and would do anything for them. Shanna adores being an auntie to her 3 nephews and loves to read them stories and play games. She’s a natural with children and it’s easy to see she’s going to be a fantastic mother.

For fun, we like to golf and play board games when we are not traveling the world. Last year, we hiked Angel’s Landing in Utah. A favorite trip of ours was to Italy and Croatia. We love country music concerts and a good date night. We are fortunate to be loved and supported by our family, neighbors, and an incredible circle of friends.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. No matter what you decide, please know that you and your child are in our prayers and we want the very best for both of you. You are where this child’s story starts, and we always want to honor that. Without you and your courage to have this child, their story would not be possible, and they should know about your strength and love.

With all our love,
Shanna & Rob
