|More About Our Family
|More about our son, Parker|
Parker is 5 years old and loves learning the car manufacturer's symbols and pointing them out as we drive. He even knows many of the model names of cars and enjoys correcting you when you get them wrong. He is in preschool and says his favorite thing about school is playing outside at recess. He knows all his letters and numbers and is excited to help teach these to his little brother or sister.
We attend a Baptist church where we love to worship God and learn more about Him. We enjoy serving as a family at our church, and the members are like our extended family. They are praying for our adoption and can't wait to help us welcome our next child!
|Our Open Adoption|
We met our son's birth mom a week before he was born and were present in the hospital when he was born. We have an open adoption with his birth mom, and Parker calls her his "birthday mom". We see her and her other children at least once a year. The kids enjoy playing with each other, and Parker especially loves talking to his oldest sister. We send text updates and photos many times throughout the year to his birth mom and are so thankful for her. She let us know that, if you would want to, she would be open to talking to you about what open adoption looks like with us.
|Our Favorite Holidays|
We love celebrating with family and friends on the Holidays! For Easter, we hide eggs in the backyard for the kids to find. For Thanksgiving, our family takes turns hosting, and the men always deep fry the turkey in the backyard! For Christmas every year, we spend the week in Colorado, splitting our time between Dan's family and Liana's family. We enjoy our time together as we eat, open gifts, play games, and celebrate the birth of Jesus.
