Our home is on 10 acres of land and what is unique is that it’s pie shaped, so we have the best of both worlds, a neighborhood with tons of land for children to explore and run around on. There will be no shortage of friends, frogs to catch, space for forts to be built and tree swings to play on. We intentionally bought a large home with 4 bedrooms so we could fill it with the laughter and the fun kind of chaos that comes with children.
Our home has an in-ground pool that our friends and family love to use and we love when they’re here, a pond for fishing and a very large garden that we grow all kinds of fruit and vegetables in. Nick is obsessed with plants ... guess it comes with the profession! He’s spent years adding new landscaping and truly making our home beautiful and inviting. We look forward to spending a lot of our time outdoors with our child learning, laughing and seeing what kind of mischief we can get into together.
We live about 10 minutes from a very friendly, safe and historical town that has a top-rated school district. There is always something fun and interesting going on such as festivals, farmer’s markets and community events. We live very close to multiple city and state parks with boating, trails, nature centers, bike paths and playgrounds that we can’t wait to enjoy together as a family.
We’re blessed to have extraordinary people in our lives that we are extremely close with. Both of our families and all of our friends are so excited that we’re adopting. When we told them, there were many tears of joy!
Melissa’s family is all in Michigan, parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts and cousins live close by. We spend a lot of time with Melissa’s sister’s two children playing board games, having water gun fights and monkeying around. They are very excited to be cousins.
Nick’s family is all in Russia. Although we are miles apart we’re very close in our hearts. We skype almost every day, we travel to Russia and his family visits us in Michigan. When we travel to Russia we spend time preparing Russian traditional foods, exploring historical places and having fun together. We are excited for our child to learn a second language and all about the beautiful Russian culture.
Every year with our closest friends we vacation together and we cherish the memories we make with them and their wonderful children. We look forward to including our child on these vacations to the Caribbean, Lake Michigan, Europe or wherever the next adventure takes us.
