|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
We love spending time outdoors with our dogs! Fetch is a nightly routine at our house and always great fun. We love spending time with our extended family and friends. One of our favorite things to do is taking our two-year-old nephew out for ice cream every Friday.
Our families have belonged to the same Christian church for over fifty years. Katie is currently a member of our church council. We plan to baptize and raise our child in the very same church.
We are excited and feel so blessed to be on this journey to grow our family. We truly believe that adoption was God's plan for our family!
|Our Musical Interest|
We were both in band growing up. Chris played the trombone and Katie played the clarinet. We doubt we could still play those instruments now though! We both love country music, especially George Strait.
|Our Extended Families|
Our child will be so lucky to have five great-grandparents! We are from very large extended families including lots of aunts, uncles, and cousins. Most of our extended family lives close so we get together all of the time. Holidays are the best amongst the fun and chaos.
|Our Dogs||We have 2 dogs!
Penny is an eight-year-old German Shorthair Pointer who loves treats and playing frisbees.
Riggs is our newest addition and is only three-months-old. He is a border collie mix and is very energetic. He loves running around with our nephew. Every year for their birthdays we have a little party where they get doggie ice cream. |
