Our House and Neighborhood
Our Home Decorated for Christmas

We live in a small beach town in southern California just outside of a major city. Our home is small but cozy and full of love and laughter. We have a large family room with a wood-burning fireplace and a small fenced-in yard that is the perfect size for a child to run around with our dogs in the year-round sunny weather.

Our neighborhood is incredibly family-friendly with lots of young couples with small children. There are multiple playgrounds, community centers, libraries, and schools all within walking distance of our home. We are also walking distance to numerous shops, restaurants, swimming pools, soccer fields, and tennis courts. Our local beaches, which we live a short biking distance from, have fire pits, grills, and volleyball nets open to the public and provide a great place for lots of family fun.

Being just outside of a city, we're lucky to also have nearby museums, zoos, aquariums, restaurants, farmers markets, monthly festivals, and people from all over the world. We also live just a short drive away from numerous hiking trails, national parks, lakes, mountains, Disneyland and Harry Potter World. Your child will have ample opportunities for excitement and adventure in southern California. They'll be able to play outdoors and participate in different sports, music, and art. They'll be able to hike, wakesurf, and camp in national parks. They'll be able to sing with Mickey Mouse and cast spells on Diagon Alley. Adventure awaits and we're so excited to have it as parents!

Our Extended Families
Jenn's Family

We have an incredibly loving and supportive family who is eagerly awaiting another addition. A child welcomed into our family will be loved by six grandparents, five aunts and uncles, three young cousins, and an extended family too large to count. Most of our family lives on the east coast, however we do have some family in the nearby area. When we're able to be together, we love to cook big meals, ride bikes, play board games, and just sit around the kitchen table talking and laughing. As a military family we aren't always able to live near family, however, we make the most of it. We have frequent Facetime dates, visit on holidays, and stay in touch on a regular basis through various forms of technology.

Joe's Family

We also have an amazing group of friends that have become our family away from home. It consists of four other military couples, all who have children ranging from newborns to three year olds. We celebrate birthdays, holidays, and general milestones together. They're the most supportive group of people who truly feel like family, helping us through all the highs and lows that life has to offer.

Our friends and family are all so supportive of our adoption plan. They can't wait to be a part of this child's life and look forward to spoiling it with lots of love, hugs, and kisses!
