|More About Our Family
|Why we chose adoption|
We have always wanted to adopt! Carl was raised by his grandparents and always felt a call to give that love and stability that was given to him. Monique also has had many cousins that were adopted, too. Once we opened our home to our teen god-daughter and supported her through college, we knew it was time to officially expand our family through adoption!
We cherish our friends and family more than anything. We love spending time with our loved ones and never miss a holiday or birthday celebration. Our Christian faith is also very important to us and a guide for how we live and interact with others. Carl likes to participate in the shelter ministry and Monique in the music ministry.
We have one cat named Kizzy D’kitty! She is a sweet and docile cat who loves cuddling.
We go big for the holidays! We host Thanksgiving dinner at our house and then Monique, her mom, and sisters go Black Friday shopping every year. Then, on Christmas Eve, we spend the night with other family at Monique’s parent’s house. We have a family tradition of dressing alike on Christmas Day and taking goofy pictures. It’ s so much fun!
