|More About Our Family
|A Day in the Life...|
Mason has the freedom to work from home or from his office at the church he pastors. He takes Mondays off and is home everyday for lunch. His week never looks the same but it's always filled with people and work projects. Sometimes he comes home with freshly baked cookies, books for the kids, or a tomato plant for the garden - all from his many interactions with friends from the church and community.
Regina stays home with Georgia and often babysits our young nephew while our son is at school. She also teaches the preschool class at our church twice a week. We often enjoy a family bike ride to Grandma's house. Our rural community has lots of city parks, a new splash pad, library, wonderful schools, a dance studio, and many sports activities like summer league sports and BMX, which Mason Jr. particularly enjoys!
|Our First Adoption|
Since our son, Mason Jr., was born, we have experienced secondary infertility. Although this was unexpected, adoption had always been on our hearts. Our daughter, Georgia, is African American; we met her and her beautiful mother the day she was born and our lives have never been the same. She is a precious gift to the world! The incredible blessing of knowing her along with the opportunity/responsibility to support her as she grows is not lost to us. We exchange letters and pictures with her birth mother, and we send some of her artwork by mail. We're excited to welcome another child through adoption and know it will be a wonderful shared adoption experience for her and our next child.
|More of our Interests|
Mason loves all things nature. He's always up for a trip to the mountains and has made many backpacking trips into the wilderness areas of New Mexico; his fly rod is never left behind. He's captivated by farming techniques both old and new and is fascinated by the miracle of a sprouting seed. He's knowledgeable with engines and automotive repair, construction, and carpentry. Occasionally he'll draw the most amazing, and detailed pencil drawings - he has PERFECT hand writing!
Regina is a mathematician at heart. Her dream job would have been to be a calculator for NASA! She's worked as an engineer in the past on submarines, planes, and helicopters. Now, she loves the availability staying at home gives her to serve our family. She especially loves sending cards at Christmas.
