|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
We love to travel and recently had the opportunity to spend 3 months in Europe for Eric's job. We took the once-in-a-lifetime chance to sightsee and visited 6 different countries! Eric is also a beekeeper and gardener and we donate proceeds from our honey sales to March of Dimes to promote healthy pregnancies. Danyelle likes to cook, is a member of her community women's group, and attends a monthly book club.
We are a wonderfully blended Lutheran and Greek Orthodox family that believes in raising our children to be kind, loving, honest and loyal.
|Our Musical Interest|
We both grew up playing a musical instrument (Danyelle-flute, Eric-saxophone) and we will encourage our children to do the same- music fosters creativity and expression! Our daughter, Chloe, began piano lessons this past summer!
|Our Extended Family|
Everyone is thrilled about our adoption! We live close to both sets of grandparents, our sisters and their families, as well as uncles, aunts and second cousins! We spend a lot of time with family on holidays, cookouts, vacations, and just to spend time together. Our children will grow up with so many people in their lives who love and support them.
Chloe is almost 5 and loves crafts, reading and her scooter. She loves playing 'house' and 'dolls' and speaks often of how excited she is to become a big sister again and help out with a new baby. Ronan is 3 and loves climbing, playing ball, and all things that 'go'- planes, trains and trucks! He will be such a great big brother and as he outgrows things, he puts them in his closet to "save for my new baby".
|We live in the state of...|
We live in a safe neighborhood in a great public school district with many children on our block. We have a very active local library and park district, can walk to the downtown area, and have plenty of parks and walking trails nearby. We live very close to a forest preserve that we enjoy hiking at and love spending time outdoors.
