We love spending time with our families. Erin’s parents, and her brother and his family, all live a few miles from each other in North Carolina. Erin’s brother and his wife have three children who are so much fun. Our niece and nephews love to visit us in the Washington, DC area and play with our dog Ivy. Erin also has aunts, uncles and cousins who live near her parents. We all get together for a fun-filled Christmas brunch with lots of music and yummy food to kick off the holiday season. Erin’s mom is from Canada, so she also has many relatives up North. They live in a beautiful area on a lake, which is perfect for swimming, canoeing and fishing.
Most of Nicolas’ family lives in France. His parents and his sister live in Paris, which is always a very exciting city to visit: so many great museums, beautiful parks, and wonderful food! One of our favorite things to do is to walk by the Eiffel Tower at night when it is lit up. Nicolas’ dad is originally from Texas, so Nicolas has many relatives there too - aunts, uncles, and cousins. They are a very fun bunch, and they always treat us to fantastic BBQ and Tex-Mex food when we go to see them!
Our families are excited we are building our family through adoption, and can’t wait to meet this child and share memories and experiences together.
We live in a culturally diverse area near Washington, DC. It only takes about 15 minutes to get into the city, where there are countless museums, festivals, sporting events and activities we enjoy. We live in a townhouse which is located on a quiet cul-de-sac where we have neighbors of various ages and ethnicities. We moved into our house 3 years ago and have fallen in love with the neighborhood. Our neighbors have become good friends and many have young children who love to play with our dog, Ivy. There are sidewalks throughout, many green, grassy areas to play in, an elementary school, playgrounds, swimming pools and tennis courts. There is also a farmers’ market within walking distance that we like to go to on Sunday mornings. There is always a long line at the food truck that sells apple cider donuts! The neighborhood association organizes a lot of fun, family-friendly events each year, including an Easter egg hunt, a Christmas party with Santa, a July 4th celebration and a BBQ/pool party. Halloween is the biggest event of the year, with lots of spooky decorations, a neighborhood costume contest and hundreds of children out trick-or-treating.
