|More About Our Family
|More about us|
We enjoy traveling and spending time with friends and family. We're huge baseball fans. Nathan is loyal to the Chicago Cubs, while Taña is a fan of the Milwaukee Brewers.
We also have two dogs, a 10-year-old golden doodle named Henry (he is still energetic even at his ripe old age) and a 9-year-old chihuahua and bichon mix named Molly.
Nathan has a passion for boating and fishing and you can catch him on the water, no matter the season. (Yes, that includes ice fishing. Nathan finds beauty in nature and enjoys anything outdoors, like bonfires, hiking, and camping.
He was in a dirt bike accident as a teenager and lost sight in one eye. He has not allowed his injury to stop him from doing anything he puts his mind to. It hasn't stopped him from enjoying life and his love of the outdoors. It always makes me chuckle when kids ask him if he is a pirate and the answers that he comes up with.
Taña has a passion for helping others. You will often see her volunteering her spare time to help those in need, both in the community and at church. She also enjoys reading, cross-stitching, taking walks, boating, swimming, camping, and hiking.
Our faith is what has established the foundation of our family. We believe that God has directed us down the path to adopting and we put all of our faith in Him. We are a Christian couple and attend a non-denominal church. Taña is active with serving on teams within our church and she finds extreme joy in expressing God's love by helping others. We continuously strive to strengthen our faith by attending weekly services and implementing the teachings into our life. We also attend a weekly small group, which has allowed us to form lifelong friendships as well as grow within our faith.
Nathan was recently baptized and was blessed to have Taña be the one to baptize him.
|Our Musical Interest|
Nathan enjoys listening to a little Bestie Boys but can also slip on his cowboy boots and jam to some country music. He also likes listening to alternative and contemporary Christian music.
Taña loves listening to all kinds of music ranging from country, pop, and contemporary Christian. You will also hear Taña singing out of tune to her favorite pop music from the 80's and 90's. Nathan playfully makes fun of Tana as she belts out to the tune of New Kids on the Block, Backstreet Boys, and Britney Spears.
|Our Life as Foster Parents |
We have been incredibly blessed to have welcomed two foster children into our home for two years. We continue to have a strong and loving relationship with them and their mother.
|We live in the state of...|
Wisconsin... Where we are blessed to experience all 4 seasons!
We live in an extremely tight-knit community. We are friends with many of our neighbors and you will often see us spending time with them having bonfires, boating, swimming in the lake, and holding potluck dinners. We live in a family-friendly lake and golfing community. We live across the street from a lake and have two parks on each end of our road. Our community has many fun activities such as an annual hot air balloon festival in the summer and an outdoor skating rink in the winter.
