|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
We are an active couple who love spending time outdoors enjoying nature and visiting historical sites. We enjoy traveling and try to take several trips each year. On weekends we spend time biking, hiking, going to festivals, enjoying live music around town, taking road trips to beach and spending time with our Boston Terrier, Belle. In the fall, we like to attend Virginia Tech football games.
We are a Christian couple and we enjoy spending time in God's word learning and growing in our faith. We believe that God has a plan for our lives and we trust that His plan and timing are perfect. We attend a contemporary, non-denominational church with an exceptional children's ministry that we cannot wait to share with our child. We serve on the church's Guest Services & Hospitality Team as well as the Foster Care Ministry Team supporting children and youth in foster care.
|Our Musical Interest|
We love everything from classical to reggae and top 40 to gospel. We love attending concerts and supporting local musicians and bands. We also enjoy musicals and are planning to the opera in December of this year. We have several musicians in our family and we look forward sharing all kinds of music with our child.
|About Our Home|
Our home is a 1930’s bungalow that we lovingly renovated two years ago. Our home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and we have picked out a room for the nursery and look forward to making it a happy place for a child to grow.
We are currently a family of three (including our dog, Belle). We enjoy spending time with Belle, taking her on walks, playing fetch or exploring the city. We also enjoy spending time with our extended families. We have a tradition of doing the Turkey Trot 5k before Thanksgiving dinner with Anna's family. We also enjoy spending time with Todd's parents at their home at the beach. We have three nephews and two nieces and a host of friends who we consider a part of our extended family. We can't wait to incorporate our child into these family traditions.
