We both come from very supportive, loving families and share very close relationships with all of them. A lot of our immediate and extended family live close by and we see them often. Both of our families are extremely supportive about including another family member through adoption and will do anything they can to help.
Birthdays are very important to our family and we celebrate each one together--the birthday person gets to pick what's for dinner and the cake, of course! We also celebrate holidays together including Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter with and Easter Egg Hunt and even St. Patrick's Day with Corned Beef and Cabbage!
Chase is the oldest of three siblings. His whole side of the family lives in colorful Colorado. We enjoy visiting every July to see family and experience the amazing Colorado summers. Most of the family lives in the Denver area so we love going to Rockies games, Downtown Symphonies, horseback riding and just being outside in the great weather.
Abby is the second of five kids. Growing up in a large family was fun and loud--never a dull moment. All four of her siblings are married and live in the same neighborhood. Her parents also live in the neighborhood, actually the same house that she grew up in. So needless to say, there is a lot of family very close by and all willing help.
We live in a beautiful desert neighborhood located at the base of some Arizona foothills. We experience breathtaking sunsets almost every night as we are surrounded by very unique cacti called saguaros along with other desert scenery. The neighborhood that we live in is the same one where Abby was raised (they moved there when she was one). Her parents still live in the same house and all four of her married siblings, her 3 nieces and 1 nephew live less than a mile away. Two couples, both of which are our closest friends, live in the neighborhood as well and they each have 2 kids. We spend much of our free time with them and we can't wait to introduce a new child to this circle of wonderful friends. It is amazing and very supportive having so many family and friends right in the neighborhood.
Our property is a little less than an acre and our home has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a lot of living space. Our favorite aspect of our home is the open space of the living areas. It feels very warm and makes it easy to spend time together as a family. We have a large, walled in backyard with a big lawn, perfect for a child to run around and play games.
