|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
We’re pretty much inseparable, so it’s common to see Chris in an awkward yoga pose because he tagged along with Maggie to a class. It’s also likely that you will see Maggie trying to keep up with Chris pushing Belle-Rae in the stroller on a run. We love watching baseball, watching and playing golf, and attending country concerts. Spending time giving back to the community, particularly military-connected causes, is something very dear to both of us. It's important that we teach our children how to be of service to others and it will always be a priority to give them opportunities to join us when we volunteer. Travel is another passion of ours and we cannot wait for our children to join us on overseas adventures! Closer to home, nothing can top a trip to the Midwest to visit extended family.
Chris grew up attending a Bible Church and Maggie was raised Catholic. We've attended different churches as a couple over the years and found our home with a warm, welcoming Presbyterian church in our town. Instilling a sense of faith and understanding of God’s love throughout a child's life is of the utmost importance to us.
Our extended family is large, loud, and incredibly loving. There is always a reason for celebration with this bunch! Every couple of weeks a birthday, holiday, or milestone brings us all together. Our home is the center of most of our family gatherings and is filled with constant laughter. Our friends and family cannot wait to wrap their arms around another child and welcome them home.
We also have three friendly, playful cats, Bonnie, Jovi, and Maddon. They add another level of excitement to our day with their antics. Belle-Rae has really bonded with them and it’s amazing to see how protective and loving they’ve become toward her.
|Our Neighborhood |
The sidewalks in our neighborhood are full of friendly neighbors enjoying walks, stopping to chat, and hosting block parties. There are holiday celebrations, decorating contests, egg hunts, and even a Santa parade that rides right past our house! We’re blessed to live in a community that has so much to offer families and children.
|We Prefer a Child Who Is...
|Age of Child|
Absolutely! We have plenty of room in our hearts and home for two more children.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We look forward to getting to know you too! We will always honor the openness that you desire and are happy to share more details about our life with you. We promise that your child will experience a lifetime of love. They will always know the beauty of the roots and branches of their family tree and how adoption has blessed us all.
