|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
Robert enjoys reading, exercise, playing outside with the kids, and tech/business stuff.
Petra loves brunch, science projects with the kids, reading, and home renovation projects.
We are a strong Christian family and very active in our local church. Petra is a leader in the worship ministry and Rob serves on the audiovisual team. Together we lead our small group ministry for our church and love the close interaction it gives us to other families of faith. It is our strong belief that loving God requires that we love people by doing our best to serve those in need, so we focus our active faith in that area. We have family prayer nightly and also encourage our children to lead the Lord's Prayer. This foundation of faith has been important in strengthening our family.
|Our Musical Interests|
We love music! From old school gospel to 90's R&B to rap. We also appreciate the anime theme songs and Disney classic shows theme songs.
|About Our Home|
We live in a 4 bedroom home in a great family neighborhood. We also have a large front and back yard that is perfect for playing outside and exploring.
Our oldest son, Jackson, is incredibly loving, patient, empathetic, bright, and creative. He is a great big brother who always looks out for others and tries to see the good in everyone. He always makes new friends wherever he goes and we love to hear his thoughts on social life as a little person. One of his favorite pastimes is to learn new video games and run with his dad and brother through our neighborhood.
Sterling has the best sense of humor and the most protective personality. He loves the outdoors and any type of activity that lets him get dirty, including homemade science projects. He is curious about everything and asks as many questions as possible. He also loves to dress up as Batman and "save" all of us from the bad guys.
We live on a cul-de-sac that has access to parks and other activities. Our street has numerous families of different sizes, ages, races, and ethnicity. We love hanging out with our neighbors in the evenings after work, as an extension of our community family.

We are a fun and loving family who are strong supporters of faith and education. We believe that to be the best and happiest versions of ourselves it is important to experience different cultures, take part in traditional education, and connect with socially diverse people. Our greatest passion is Jesus and loving others as He loves us. We would love the opportunity to do the same for you and your child.
