We have four daughters: Olivia (11) is kind, helpful, loves animals, and has an incredible laugh. Saidie (9) is artistic, witty, caring, and loves the ocean. Violet (7) is joyful, brave, full of life, and gives amazing hugs. Paisley (5) is funny, expressive, inquisitive, and fearless.
It’s important to us that each of our children feel special and loved. Every month, we devote a “special” night to each child, to have time just with mom and dad. On that night they pick the activity, such as a game, a pillow fight, baking together, or snuggling to read their favorite book. This tradition is a big hit among our girls!
As a family, we enjoy weekly movie nights with a big bowl of popcorn, Beau’s Saturday morning pancakes, and Caroline’s storytimes. Every morning we have breakfast together, reading from the Bible and praying together before we start our day. And occasionally, we’ll have a tea party, complete with fancy hats, china, frilly dresses and all the tiny food you can eat!
We have a large, close-knit, supportive extended family spread out in Oklahoma, Mississippi, Texas, and Virginia. We love traveling to see our loved ones for holidays and school breaks. Grandparents, on both sides, visit us often and have great relationships with our daughters. We also have a large group of friends who are like family to us. Everyone is looking forward to welcoming the child we adopt into the family.
