Our families are one of the things in life we cherish the most. Matt's family is not very large and remains very close. Many visits with Matt's family revolve around picnics, barbecues and other outdoor activities such as snow shoeing, fishing, or tubing on the lake. We love our family time at the lake cabin enjoying the peaceful scenery and outdoors.
Krista's family is rather large including many aunts, uncles and cousins with a wide range of ages. Krista's family always gathers around the holidays where everyone brings a dish to enjoy and board games to play. Some of our favorite dishes are Krista's mom's Kentucky corn, hash brown casserole, and her dad's homemade ribs.
Our families are extremely close and lookout for one another. There is a very strong connection and support system that we're thankful exists in both our families. We are incredibly grateful our adoption journey is fully supported by our families. This child will be loved, cared for, and supported not only by us as parents, but also by everyone else who connected to us.
We reside in a wonderful part of Washington state often described as a larger city with a small town feel. We live in a two-level ranch style home with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. There are two family rooms we enjoy, one upstairs and the other downstairs, which also doubles as a rec room when friends and family gather. Our kitchen is very functional, which makes preparing home-cooked meals and hosting family dinners truly special. Our backyard is fully fenced and contains our vegetable garden, covered patio for backyard barbecues, and open space for a future swing set and sandbox for this child to enjoy.
Our home is situated in a quiet suburb surrounded by many amenities, family parks and hiking trails. One of the parks nearby has newer playground equipment, a public swimming pool with a diving board, and areas for picnics, barbeques, and children's sport practices often used by other young families that reside in our neighborhood. We look forward to this child growing up with other young children in our neighborhood and gathering at this park to enjoy many fun events.
