Our Leisure Time
Catamaran Boat Ride on Vacation

We love to stay active and on the go. Traveling is a passion of ours. Our favorite trip we’ve taken was to Australia. One day we hope to go back. Even though we are now parents and don’t have as much free time, we still love to travel. Our son has had a passport since he was less than a year old and has already experienced several really cool places.

We enjoy taking walks through the neighborhood and on the greenway. Our greenway runs along a river which makes it extra peaceful. Our son stays busy with extracurricular activities and sports. We enjoy attending all of his games and cheering him on in whatever he does. As a family, we love hitting up the park, playing putt-putt and board games, driving go carts, eating on the patio, and going bowling. Throughout the year we enjoy cheering on our favorite sports teams as well. We enjoy being outside as much as possible. Even though we love staying busy, sometimes you just need to chill. On those nights we like to rent a family movie, pop some popcorn and curl up on the couch together. We’re excited to share all of these fun activities with our children and create many memories.

Why We Chose Adoption
All Smiles

We have been blessed with our son, Tucker, who is 6 years old. Since he was 2 years old, we have tried continuously to have another child. Not having much luck, we sought out the help of a fertility specialist. Since having our son, Emily has experienced three miscarriages and one ectopic pregnancy. After a lot of heartache, we decided to look at other options. We discussed it and decide that adoption was the path we were meant to be on. We truly feel the reason Emily could not maintain a pregnancy is that we are meant to share our love, joy, and blessings with an adopted child. We would love to expand our family and feel it is not yet complete. Tucker cannot wait to be a big brother and we know he will be a great helper!
