Beth and Shawn Noble
BETH ABOUT SHAWN
Shawn is truly my best friend and he makes me laugh all of the time. He is just going to make the best dad. He is so kind, funny and gentle and I know our child will have the greatest of role models. I also know he will have so much pride for our child, no matter what he or she aspires to be. Best of all, Shawn is the greatest storyteller and I can’t wait to watch him make up special stories for our child to listen to and laugh at. Shawn will only truly be complete once he becomes a dad.

A LITTLE ABOUT US
We met about four years ago through our shared love of dogs and quickly found that we had so many other things in common. We like sports, travel and we both desire to have a family. We focused on our careers early on in life so that we could provide security and stability to our children. We have such a happy home that we cannot wait to share our lives with a little one.
Shawn is originally from southern Ohio and has his doctorate in psychology. He does market research and enjoys a flexible schedule that allows him to work from home when he wants. Shawn can’t wait to stay home with our child to play sports and games! Beth is a native North Carolinian and an attorney who owns her own law firm. She too enjoys a very flexible schedule. Beth will love coming home to be able to read exciting books and bake delicious treats with our child.
WHERE WE LIVE
We are located in Raleigh, North Carolina, which is conveniently located 2 hours from the beach and just 3 hours from the mountains. Our neighborhood is lovely with gently rolling hills, lakes and large river birch trees for our child to play under in the warm North Carolina summers. A wildlife preserve borders our backyard and is filled with deer, rabbits and squirrels. We cannot wait to see our child watching the deer with excitement as they come into our yard to eat fruit off of the trees. We also love going to the local bakery. We can already imagine our child enjoying a cupcake with ice-cold milk and getting a fresh milk mustache!
A DAY IN OUR LIVES
We are very passionate about sports and attend a variety of sporting events each year, mainly football and hockey. Shawn is an avid golfer and cannot wait to cheer with our child after he or she makes that first big putt! Beth is an outdoor girl and loves to fish and camp. She also loves crafting jewelry and cooking. Beth can’t wait to have the kitchen covered with flour as she teaches our little one how to make cookies. We love animals of all kinds and have three loving golden retrievers that adore children. We can just imagine our child playing fetch with the dogs in the backyard.
We are very blessed to have both sets of our parents living just a few miles away. Most weekends are spent with all of us getting together and having a family dinner and playing games. Our child will love showing off his or her Wii skills to the grandparents. Our parents are so excited to welcome a grandchild into their lives. They will have an active role in helping us to raise our little one!
We have a large extended and close-knit family. We all find the joys of life through love and laughter. We know that our child will feel the same. We have family in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida and the distance is never an obstacle when it comes to gatherings. We travel a few times a year to visit family, and they also visit us often. The entire family is really happy about us adopting and cannot wait to welcome our little one into our family.
We hope we have given you an open look into our lives and that you have enjoyed learning more about us. We wish you peace and serenity throughout this process. Just know that we are here to support you and we would like to thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. We are just a phone call or email away if you want to talk and we so look forward to hearing from you.
SHAWN ABOUT BETH
Beth is the kindest and most caring person that I have ever met. She never hesitates to give others the benefit of the doubt and finds the good in everything. She is passionate about life and loves to create new things, including photos and scrapbooks. I can’t wait to see all the pictures of our child that she will capture! I am so lucky to have Beth as my best friend and the mother of our future child.
