|More About Our Family
We are a close family and we love spending time together. Both of us love traveling, even if it is just to take a short trip by car to sit by a mountain lake or to try out a new restaurant in a nearby town. We travel 2 times a year to see our family back east. We get to see our family in California more often because we live closer. We try to go on a relaxing vacation at least once a year.
We have a lot of friends in the entertainment industry and we love to support their work by watching their films or seeing their plays. Kirk likes to play golf or go fishing with friends. Taki likes to swim and take walks in the park.
Both of us grew up in the church and we both share a deep and profound belief in God. Kirk’s mother is an ordained lay minister in the Protestant Church and Taki’s mom is a lay leader. Church was an important part of both of our lives growing up. We attend church every week we are in town and catch up with sermons via, live stream and podcast when we are not in town. We believe God had ordered our lives to be parents and to adopt and care for children. We look forward to sharing our faith in God teaching them about the love of Christ and the blessing he has over our lives.
Combined, we have lived in 6 major cities across the country. We have a vast network of friends across the country who have supported our adoption journey from the beginning. They are artists, filmmakers, bankers, realtors, teachers, and writers. They lovingly await the opportunity to welcome our new family member or members.
|About Our Home and Neighborhood|
We live in a large 4 bedroom house in a family-friendly neighborhood. We have a big backyard with a pool and a large area for playing and running in the grass. We hope to install a swing set when the children get older. At home, on a weekend morning, you will find us preparing breakfast or sharing the day's events with each other over a home-cooked meal at dinner that evening. We like to watch movies from time to time and we love listening to music or playing scrabble. Our home is clean and safe and filled with love.
Several neighbors have been here for a long time. We look out for each other and exchange gifts during the holidays. Our neighborhood is full of diverse, artistic, and health-conscious people who have proven to be good and friendly neighbors.
|Our Musical Interest||We love all kinds of music but mostly listen to neo-soul artists like Anthony Hamilton, and Erykah Badu or thoughtful rappers like Common and old school hip-hop. Taki likes to relax while listening to Jazz and Kirk will turn on some old school Jamaican reggae when he’s thinking of where he grew up. We both love Michael Jackson, Prince, and music from the 1990s.|
