You are making such a brave decision and we admire your strength and courage. We promise to provide a loving and safe home dedicated to ensuring your child has every opportunity to grow and be successful. We are so excited to become parents and are thankful for the chance to tell you about ourselves and look forward to learning about you too.
During the week we both work during the day, but in the evening, after we have had dinner together, we work as a team to get chores done around the house. We do the chores during the week so by the time Friday rolls around we have all the free time we want so we can hang out with each other and with friends. Whether it's hiking in the park, exploring a nearby town, taking a road trip, or staying home to watch a movie, we really enjoy spending time together.
Since Richard loves to cook, we also enjoy having friends over to our home, which gives him the chance to create a nice home-cooked meal for our friends. Individually, K.C. volunteers at the local hospital once a week, participates as much as possible in church activities and loves to read. On the other hand, Rich loves to do woodworking and taking care of do-it-yourself home improvement projects around the house.
If we are fortunate enough to become parents, K.C. will be a stay-at-home mom and our focus will be the baby and family time. Our nightly and weekend activities will include enjoying the kid-friendly events our neighborhood has to offer, like walking to the park and going to the playground. We also look forward to visiting with our friends who are so excited about having our children play together.
When Rich joined the Air Force, we knew it would be fun and exciting, but we did not realize it would be one adventure after another and that it would take us all over the world. In the last few years, we have lived in some pretty amazing places, but our two most favorite are Hawaii and England.
Living in Hawaii, with the beautiful mountains, magnificent beaches, and great culture was amazing. We travelled throughout the islands, hiked, surfed, dived, snorkeled, or just hung out on the beach and relaxed. A few years later, we were able to move to England, which gave us a completely different view of the world and a wonderful opportunity to travel some more. While there we managed to visit around twenty different countries and took road trips throughout England and Europe.
Our Air Force journey, which has given us great friends, amazing places to visit, wonderful things to see, and incredible memories to cherish, is our biggest adventure. Now, we look forward to having a child in our lives so that we can share the next great adventure with.
Being parents means providing a loving and nurturing home: a home where the child knows they are loved, regardless of what is going on; a home where they feel comfortable to talk about their hopes and dreams, as well as their problems; a home where they can flourish and know that their future is wide open. Being parents also means preparing a child for their future: building their confidence; teaching them to be independent; and enabling them to reach their potential. We also want to show them how to be caring adults by volunteering as a family. We are looking forward to experiencing the different stages of a child's life: from reading their favorite bedtime story for the fiftieth time, to supporting their choice of sport or club, to picking out the perfect prom dress or corsage. We know parenthood will not always be easy, but are excited for the opportunity to see them grow and experience it all first hand.
