|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
TOGETHER we like to travel (we just got back from a trip to Chicago recently) and check out where the locals like to spend their time.
RYAN has been getting more into sci-fi/fantasy audiobooks. He will probably end up reading our child to sleep with whatever new story he's recently sunk his teeth into. He also attends the occasional Tekken (a videogame) tournament.
TAMMIE is a bit of a fashionista! She is always trying on something new. Our child will certainly not lack for style.
Christ is the center of our lives and our marriage. We also believe in asking tough questions and that God is big enough to handle those questions. We don't believe in just following rules, but instead learning to have a real connection with God that involves learning to wrestle with life's challenges in a real, authentic way, all the while knowing that God will lead, guide, and help us.
|Our Musical Interest|
Our musical tastes are all over the place, from gospel, hip-hop, classical, jazz, punk-rock, K-pop, afrobeat, electronica, and even a little metal. Our Spotify is truly chaotic!
|About Our City & Community|
We are near several big universities, museums, sports teams, and other community centers. We look forward to providing a rich, well-rounded experience to our future child where we can help them explore their interests and passions. The area is diverse and they will have friends from many different cultures.
|We Prefer a Child Who Is...
|Age of Child|
We have a deep desire to grow our family, to share our love with a child, and see them become the person God pre-destined them to be. We want to help them explore their creativity, their passions, and their gifting and dreams. We will help them build a connection to both their culture as black people and to their God, through faith in Christ. We will give them freedom to make mistakes and the courage to continue forward with a growth mindset. We desire to bring all that together in a loving, nurturing environment.
We extend those same values to you as the birth mother. We would love to connect with you and talk more about how we can partner with you and cherish your baby in our home.
