|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
Felicia loves to read, craft, garden, and travel.
Tony loves to grill, read sci-fi books, watch t.v. and hang out with close friends.
Both of us love to take part in new experiences and try new things. We look forward to traveling and sharing new experiences with your child.
We both come from a Protestant Christian background. We were both raised in Christian churches and attend a Christian church as a couple. We are very involved with our church through children's ministry, church camp, worship ministry, and our small group. We love the church family that we have created and depend on the support they give us. We look forward to raising your child in a Christian home where they will know the love and acceptance of Jesus.
|Our Musical Interest|
We could not be more diverse in our musical interests. Felicia loves country music and any song you can dance to. Tony loves rock, and heavy metal, the louder the better!
Both of us enjoy Christian music and love a wide variety of styles. We enjoy attending concerts and experiencing live music.
We are always looking for new and upcoming artists to listen to as well as local artists to fall in love with. We enjoying going to local venues where one of our very good friends is the featured artist for the evening.
|About Our Home|
We live in a three bedroom brick house with our two dogs. Maverick is a Yorkie and Stella is a Morkie and they are little bundles of high energy. These two doggies love people and cannot wait to have a full-time "little person" to give all of their attention to.
We love having friends over to relax in our hot tub, grill out on our patio, and participate in fun dinner parties. S'mores nights are our favorite summertime activity.
Our home is filled with bright colors, Dr. Seuss quotes, and modern decorations. Because Felicia is a lover of all things Seuss, we have a Dr. Seuss nursery complete with a four-wall mural painted by our friend.
We love to fill our home with pictures of our friends and family as well as artwork from the kiddos in our lives.
We do not have any children in our home at this time. We are so excited about our first adoption!
We love being around children and investing in their lives. We enjoy being actively engaged in the lives of our friends' children and choose to spoil them every chance that we get.
|We live in the state of...|
We are from a small farm town that is ethnically diverse. We love the opportunities our town's diversity provides us and the small town feel of local events and festivals.
Our town has a lot of small local shops and restaurants that are within walking distance from our house. Local ice-cream and pizza are a must have! One of our favorite summer traditions is going on a walk for ice-cream.
|We Prefer a Child Who Is...
|Age of Child|
Newborn to 3 months
Absolutely! We would love to spoil two babies!
We are open to any gender, and cannot wait to see who our bundle of joy will become!
Yes, with the oldest up to 4 years old.

|Future Contact with Birth Family|
We are open to phone calls, visits, updates, and of course pictures! After being foster parents for four years and having had children returned to their birth families, we understand the importance of maintaining contact with all family members involved in our child's life.
Thank you for considering us as parents for your child. We are incredibly excited to welcome a child into our home. We promise to love, care for, and adore your child for the rest of our lives. We look forward to getting to know you!
