|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
We enjoy a great movie, traveling, going out to dinner, cooking together, playing sports, game nights, museums and exploring adventurous new activities. We have recently taken up working out together, which is great encouragement and accountability to one another.
We are Christians, even though we are firm believers that you are given freedom of choice and finding your own pathway to God is always the best route.
|Our Musical Interest|
Our musical tastes run the gamut from Hip-Hop and R&B to Soul, Blues, Jazz, Reggae, Rock, Zen, Classical and a little Country. (Edwin grew up listening to his grandfather's record store collection!).
|About Our Home|
We live in a beautiful 5-bedroom, two-story house in a quiet neighborhood with a theater room, family room and game room.
|Why We're Adopting||Only two weeks into dating, we were already planning our future. Ironically, we shared the same dream of raising one biological child and one adopted child together. Fast forward ten years later… After a difficult pregnancy, God showed up (as He always does) and blessed us with our first child. We know that He will show up again to bless us with our second.|

We are excited to open our hearts and home to the blessing that you are bestowing upon our family. You will always have a place in our family because without you none of this would be possible. We are thrilled to be growing our family and look forward to sharing our love, support, and family with your child. We are excited to get to know you, your hopes, and your dreams. We look forward to hearing from you!
