We live in a bright 3 bedroom home just outside San Francisco, nestled in the hills of the Bay Area where the weather is perfect for a BBQ with friends. We're a short drive to several sunny beaches, redwood forests and our favorite cities: San Francisco and Oakland. We've loved getting to know our diverse neighborhood and the fun young couples with kids who are always excited to see our two fluffy pups prancing down the street. We live right behind one of the best elementary schools in the state, our back gate opens to playgrounds, soccer fields, baseball diamonds and basketball courts. We know it's spring when the sounds of evenings turn into cheers and whistles.
Our house has a great open living space for us to hang out. We love filling it with laughter from friends and family for a big game, to eat or play games. Our church is a warm group of diverse friends who feel like family, they can't wait to meet our new addition. We are pretty blessed to enjoy a small town feeling of our neighborhood, church, and friends.
We both come from big, fun, and outgoing families who are a huge part of our lives. Alan is the second oldest of 6 kids and Ali is the oldest of 5. Our families LOVE sports. We are competitive and love cheering on our favorite college football teams, skiing down mountains together, and bonding on the court with family basketball. Food is often the center of our gatherings, we crowd around the table laughing over delicious BBQ, homemade family recipes, or take out from our favorite restaurants. We love nature, we spend warm days paddleboarding in lakes, camping under the stars, roasting marshmallows around a bonfire, and exploring the beauty around us on hikes.
Our families are excited and very supportive about our plans to adopt. Ali's family doesn't have grandkids yet and our child will be adored by them, they can't wait to be a part of our child's life. Ali is also the oldest of 42 cousins, ranging from 30 to 2, this child will be surrounded by love from all of Ali's fun (though very loud) family.
On Alan's side we have 2 adorable baby nieces and a nephew who we love spending time with. They will have a blast having another kiddo to join the crew. The whole family is excited to meet a new little one and watch them grow up.
