Our home is in a very family oriented neighborhood in the suburbs of a major metropolitan city in Missouri. We have both lived in this city all of our lives and have many family members and friends that live nearby. We love it when they pop in to say "hello.” We bought our home with the hopes of raising our family here. Our home has 3 bedrooms and a lower level that we use as a play area. Our kitchen and family room are both open and where we spend most of our time together. Our backyard is fully fenced and is perfect for sports and outdoor activities. In fact, Dave already has plans to turn the backyard into a sports field! Our neighborhood is located in one of the best school districts in the city. There are two schools, several parks (with playgrounds), a baseball field and tennis courts within walking distance from our home. Our community is extremely safe and offers activities for children of all ages, including sports teams, movie nights, summer camps and carnivals. In addition, our home is less than a 15-minute drive from a nationally recognized zoo and several children's museums. We both love animals, so the zoo is one of our favorite places to visit. We both love our home so much, and we can't wait to raise our family here for a long time to come.
Our families mean the world to us. We both come from very close families that love spending time together. Our siblings and their spouses are also our best friends … sometimes we make each other laugh so hard that we cry. Together we have a total of 7 nieces and nephews that we can't help but spoil when we're together. Julie's parents live close by in the same city and her sister lives in a nearby town. We own a lake house with Julie's family and love to get together down at the lake on holidays, summers and weekends. Our favorite lake house activities are boating, skiing, tubing, cooking and doing puzzles. Lots of family memories are made at the lake! Dave's mother and brother also live close by in the same city. In fact, Dave's family owns a family restaurant, and they work together almost every day. All of Dave's family members are excellent cooks, and Friday night at the family restaurant has become a weekly family tradition. It's amazing that we don't all weigh more than we do! Our families love our daughter, Winnie, more than life itself and are extremely supportive of our decision to pursue adoption once again. They can't wait to welcome another child into the family to spoil and love.
