|More About Our Family
|We live in the state of|
Beautiful Ohio, in the heart of it all! We enjoy all four seasons. Building snowmen and sled riding in the winter, picking pumpkins in the fall, taking walks at the park in the spring, and swimming in our pool during the summer are a few things we hope to share with a new baby as the seasons pass by.
Together we share two awesome boys, Mason and Noah, and a beautiful daughter Jordan.
Noah, our youngest child, is excited to start the robotics and stem program next year. He loves building 3D printers and coding. He enjoys playing the violin, piano, ukulele, and saxophone. He is very excited to finally be the “big” brother. He plans to help prepare the nursery and teach his little sister or brother all about music.
Mason, our middle child, is in high school, aside from his regular studies at school he studies airplane aviation. He loves learning to build and fly airplanes. His dream is to be an airplane pilot. Mason is in driving school and looks forward to getting his drivers license. He is excited to be a big brother again and plans to teach his new sibling all about airplanes.
Jordan, our oldest child, attends college and is majoring in graphic design. She loves helping with the high school drama club in her free time. She plans to pursue her career while living in New York City when she graduates. We are supportive and super excited to see her dreams become reality. Jordan is excited to welcome a new sibling to our family. She looks forward to lunch dates and helping with school activities. Jordan will be a great big sister.
|As a couple, we enjoy|
We enjoy an afternoon lunch at the park or a dinner night followed by a movie together. Having a healthy balance in our lives is important for us and we love that our kids see us happy together and making time for one another.
|About Our Home|
Our home is nestled in on two acres of land, in a beautiful neighborhood. It has six bedrooms with plenty of space for our growing family. We are near museums, parks, and just a couple of minutes from our school. We enjoy spending time in the pool and also watching movies in the theatre room. A few minutes from our home is our family farm. We enjoy spending time outdoors at the farm fishing, riding dune buggies, and also planting pumpkins. We would love to share our home, farm, and love with your child.
We are a Christian family. Our recipe for faith is to be kind to others, always forgive, and never forget the love Jesus has for all of us.
|Our Favorite Tradition|
We love having our family and friends over to celebrate the Fourth of July, with us and our children. Over the years we have added many new family members and friends to our celebration. Everyone enjoys fun conversation, great food, taking a turn at the dunking booth and visiting the petting zoo in the front yard. As it starts to get dark, we release dozens of Chinese lanterns into the sky and enjoy the beautiful fireworks. The entire day from beginning to end is a blast for everyone, that is why it is our favorite tradition. We would love for your child to be a part of not only our Fourth of July tradition but all of our traditions, from French toast on Sunday mornings to spending Christmas Eve having dinner and exchanging gifts with our extended family.
|Why we want to adopt|
The two of us talked about adoption for about a year. Our talk turned into a decision that was written in our hearts like writing in stone. We talked for hours, laughing and smiling, about raising a new baby together. Teaching them all that we can about life. What it would be like on the very first day of school. We laughed at each other, knowing it would be the two of us holding back tears. We talked about if he or she would be a Dallas Cowboys fan like Rose, a LA Chargers fan like Doug or if they wouldn't even like football. We talked about going to the fair, pushing him or her on the swings, building leaf piles in the front yard so that the baby can run and jump into them, how we would help them prepare for their first dance and how we would help them heal from their first break up.
Talking about the two of us with this beautiful new addition led us to talk with our children and they were so excited. They talked with us, sharing how they look forward to helping us get the nursery ready, teaching the baby how to say new words, building blocks, and painting pictures. They all look forward to being supportive loving siblings to a new baby. At that moment we realized God was paving our road so that we can begin our adoption journey. We look forward to loving another child and to giving all we have and teaching them all that we know.
