|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
We love cars and we go to the auto show every year together. Aaron also loves to work on cars. We have television shows that we watch together. Amethyst loves dance shows like So You Think You Can Dance and World of Dance and Aaron loves his football. We both love basketball. We like to go to basketball and baseball games. During our downtime, we both enjoy reading, playing games like Words with Friends, and surfing the net or Facebook.
Our journey is God lead. We prayed together to determine if adoption was the right path for us. Once we made the decision to adopt our family, friends, and our church pitched in to help make this dream become a reality. Our children's ministry is great and starts at age 3 and goes through 12th grade. They get to learn at their level.
|Our Musical Interest|
We like a variety of music. Aaron's favorite is smooth jazz and Amethyst's favorite is Gospel. We both played instruments in high school. Aaron played the Baritone Tuba and Amethyst played the flute. Amethyst listens to a variety of music since she teaches ballet, jazz, hip hop, tap, and Zumba.
|About Our Home|
We have a beautiful 3 bedroom 2-Story single-family home with the Snoopy themed nursery already completed. Our backyard is big with no neighbors directly behind us so there is plenty of space to play games or for hosting gatherings. Aaron likes to grill in the backyard. We enjoy landscaping and decorating for Christmas, our favorite holiday. Amber loves to play in the yard and roll in the grass.
We see some of our family weekly and others at least once a month. We live 10 minutes from Amethyst's parents and 20 minutes away from Aaron's mom's house. We are big on spending time together for the holidays. We celebrate our family Christmas the Sunday before Christmas every year that way everyone can attend. We have a monthly bowling night with the family on the third Sunday of the month. Our nieces come over for regular playdates.
|We live in the state of...|
We live in the suburbs of Illinois. We are a short car ride from one of the big cities and enjoy attending the summer fireworks show every year! They also have awesome restaurants and museums. We love to go to the electric boats annually with your baby’s future Godmother and other friends. We are centrally located so most things are close by.
We live in a quiet subdivision of single-family homes and townhomes. There is a neighboring park behind our open backyard. Nice to walk the dog or ride bikes. It is a well-maintained community. It is the perfect surroundings to grow and play. Only 4 minutes from our family-owned daycare center.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. We promise to love your child unconditionally. We feel that it is God’s plan for us to become a family through adoption and we are so excited to do so. We are financially, emotionally, and mentally ready to make a difference in a child’s life and support them in all that they do. We look forward to hearing from you soon and getting to know you!
