Justin and Erin

Married since 2014

Reside in Virginia

Justin’s Occupation: Magistrate

Erin’s Occupation: Registered Nurse

About Us:

We met at a mutual friend’s birthday party in 2010. It is hard to describe the idea of fate when you experience it first hand; meeting a random person, at a random moment in time, who turns out to be your soulmate, and the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. Within moments we found ourselves immersed in deep conversation, then spent the rest of the night dancing and laughing. We began a friendship, that led to a relationship, and ultimately led to our marriage in 2014. Our original friendship continues to grow stronger with each passing day as we are each other’s best friend. We have had many highs and lows in all of our years together. Being able to carry a child full term was hard for Erin, though we were blessed with our son Aidan in 2018. Since then, we have wanted nothing more than to continue expanding our family. Adoption is well known in Erin’s family, as two of her first-cousins are adopted and another first-cousin adopted two boys of his own as well. We love to spend time as a family; going to festivals, museums, playing games, and dancing in our living room. We strongly believe that all children should feel safe and happy, making this a priority in both our professional and personal lives.
