We both have very close, large families. Mitzi has four older siblings, Chris has two older siblings and we have a total of 10 nieces and nephews. Adoption is already a very special part of our family as our son, Mitzi's older brother and sister and Chris' nephews are all adopted. Everyone is very excited and supportive of our plans to adopt again and cannot wait to grow our family once more through adoption!
One of Mitzi's many family traditions is for the entire family to meet at her parents' lake house every 4th of July weekend. It is so much fun seeing our son and all of his cousins play together. We jet ski, tube, fish, swim, BBQ, play board games, watch the fireworks, and most of all spend time talking and laughing with each other.
Our favorite tradition with Chris' family is Christmas. It is filled with great food, Italian traditions and love. We all travel to one sibling's home and stay the entire week together. We watch movies, bake cookies, play cards, do puzzles and make yummy dinners together. On Christmas Eve, we attend church, eat a delicious dinner, and put cookies out for Santa and feed for the reindeer. Christmas morning is so much fun watching the kids dig into their stockings and presents. We cannot wait to start sharing these wonderful memories with your child!
We love our city, neighborhood and home and are excited to grow our family here! We are minutes from several great hike and bike trails, where we are several times a week enjoying the beautiful weather. We are also close to gorgeous lakes, where we try to be every summer weekend skiing and relaxing with our friends and their children. Our city also has incredible live music and activities for the whole family, including a kite festival, children's museum, parks, nature and science center and baseball and football games.
Our neighborhood is so friendly and ideal for a growing family. We have become the best of friends with our neighbors. All of them have children or are expecting, and they can't wait for us to grow our family once again through adoption! Once a month, we all get together at one of our houses for dinner and games. The adults cook, talk and laugh, while the kids play tag in the backyard or basketball in the cul-de-sac. We can't wait to introduce your child to his/her lifelong friends!
We absolutely love our warm and inviting home! It has four bedrooms, three baths and a beautiful kitchen that is open to the dining room and family room. Our backyard is perfect for BBQ's and for kids playing soccer, baseball and other fun games. We look forward to introducing your child to all the fun and exciting things our city, neighborhood and home have to offer!
