|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
Noah has many special talents such as building and fixing things. He even built a playhouse bed for our daughter to sleep in and she loves that her daddy made it just for her. He is excited to teach our kids how to build things and involving our kids in his hobbies as well.
As for Kelsey, she does have an adventurous side. She loves rollercoasters, jet skiing and has even been skydiving and loved it. She is excited to encourage adventure and curiosity in our little one too!
|Our Extended Family|
We are so fortunate to have such a large supportive family. Our extended family, all the way up to our kids' great grandparents, love adoption and have learned so much with us through our journey of growing our family. A baby placed with us would have cousins, aunts, uncles, 2 sets of grandparents and 2 sets of great grandparents to shower them with love. All of our family lives within about 20 minutes of us. We love our family time, and we love how much love our kids receive from our family.
On days when we are both working, our kids are watched by Noah's mom, so they don't have to attend daycare. Our kids get to have all kinds of fun with Mimi! They like to frequent the zoo often, paint masterpieces and make fun crafts. Both sets of grandparents also have a pool, and the kids love swimming and are really good swimmers! We are passionate about safety, so all precautions are taken when it comes to pool safety and teaching the kids how to swim well.
|Why We Chose Adoption|
What led us to adoption? Jesus. Jesus laid it on both of our hearts as young teens. We knew before we got married that adoption would be a big part of growing our family. We believe there are so many situations out there where a child needs a safe home, and we have that along with so much love to give. We were foster parents for almost two years and were honored to love on 5 sweet little lives while they needed a temporary home, two of which were special medical needs. We are passionate about using what God gave us to help others and we love the idea of open adoption where we can give a child a safe, happy and healthy home to thrive in and still have a healthy relationship with the birth family, if that is desired.
Our philosophy on education is "feeding the dream" as my mom always said to us. We want our kids to find a career they love and go for it. If that includes a college degree, then it will be supported! If it involves flight school or other non-traditional education, it will be supported! If it includes a trade school like Noah's fire academy, it will be supported! We want our kids to find joy and purpose in their career no matter what the cost of education or potential money it will make. We just want them happy and fulfilled in life. We will support whatever education is needed for that dream to come true! We will feed the dreams that our kids dream!
|We Prefer a Child Who Is...
