Our home is a large New England style colonial home located in Rhode Island, with four bedrooms and a large room above the two car garage that we turned into a children's play room for Joey's daycare. The first floor has an open floor plan with a music room, an office and separate dining room along with a basement that has been converted into a game room. It's a cozy, happy home that has a lived-in, peaceful feel.
Outside there is a fenced-in yard with a swimming pool, a children's playground and a deck for outdoor living space during the warmer months.
We live in a rural neighborhood, but are close to an active downtown with many shops and amazing restaurants, a huge arcade for the kids and an aquarium. Our family friendly community is also close to beaches, museums and parks with playgrounds active with sports, arts and music. There are many different cultural and music festivals throughout the year, along with parades and fairs. Our town has a fantastic school system.
This child will have many opportunities to be involved and active within our community and make many lifelong friends.
Our families are both located close to us. Most of them live under an hour away from our home. This child will have grandparents, aunties, uncles and eight cousins that will give so much love and have so much fun!
When our family and friends visits us at our home, during the summer we play outside a lot and in the swimming pool and during the winter we like to play board games, foosball, video games and pool in our game room.
We host Thanksgiving every year and usually have fifteen to twenty family members squeezed onto two tables for our celebration meal. We always bake the turkey, Jaimy makes the most amazing stuffing and Jaimy's mom always makes her delicious kale soup and everyone brings a dish or pie. After our meal our family likes to go for a walk to the park with our dog, Marley.
On Christmas eve we attend mass at our church and open presents under the Christmas tree. On Christmas day we visit some of our family and friends.
All of our family and friends are very excited and supportive of our adoption plan. We are very open with our adoption plan and enjoy answering their questions and feel grateful for their support. This child will have a lot of fun and receive so much love from us and all of our family and friends.
