|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
During the summer we enjoy going standup paddleboarding, kayaking, and swimming at a nearby lake several times a week. We also like to go hiking whenever the opportunity presents itself. Recently we have been enjoying going bowling as a family and with friends too. At home, we love to host or attend game nights with friends and family. In our spare time, we both enjoy making things, painting, sculpture, glass blowing, and doing anything involving art. As we were raised in Africa we try to make several trips a year to travel and enjoy exploring the world.
God has always been a constant in our lives and his unconditional love is something that we want to share with your child. We both were raised in Christian homes and have personal relationships with God. We enjoy going to our church and Angela is involved with some of the child care programs there too.
We have two German Shepherds, Mishka and Zeal, who love children, and a cat, Mooki. Kyan and Zeal are best friends, and do everything together.
|Our son and his story|
We first learned about our son Kyan the day he was born in 2019, and we became first time parents that day. We have been incredibly blessed through his adoption and the open relationship we have with his birthmother, and cannot wait to grow our family further. Kyan is a firecracker - a curious, social, sweet, snugly boy, who will be a great big brother. Kyan likes to play fetch with the dogs, anything that has to do with a ball, and enjoys spending time with his cousins, who are very close in age.

|Age of Child|
Yes- we would love to adopt twins
Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit more about us and our lives. We would love to learn more about you and are praying for you. We believe adoption is something to be celebrated and want to discuss this openly from the very beginning with your child. We would love to share pictures, videos, and plan visits when possible if that is something you would like. We're really excited to grow our family through adoption and share our life’s adventures with your little one.
