|More About Our Family
|A typical day in our home involves ....|
Reading, crafts, prayers as a family, kiss quotas, snuggles and an overabundance of love and laughter! One of Chris’ favorite things to do at home is working on DIY projects and always have his little helpers. One of Casey’s favorite things to do in our home is hosting tea parties. She graduated from a culinary institute and adores making scrumptious foods for the eyes and taste buds. She can’t wait to share all her cooking tips and tricks with your child.
We are Christians, saved by grace alone. Our daily walk with God consists of reading His word, both separately and together as we discuss what we've read and encourage one another in the word. We pray together and encourage one another with verses and songs that we ourselves have been reminded of when a trial of some kind comes. Our daily walk is a constant quest to submit our lives whole hardheartedly to the will of God as we seek to follow His will for our lives. We live our life to the best we can, using our talents and abilities to glorify Him in all things in light of this present life with a longing for eternity with Him.
|Our Family, Friends and Children|
Our family is close, supportive and full of love. We have four nephews and three nieces, all within a few years of each other. It is joyful and such a blessing that the children are all going to grow up together. Each and every one of our family members are excited about our adoption journey ahead and look forward to including your child in all of our fun.
Another huge pillar in our lives is our strong friend base. We have been blessed to be surrounded by a strong Christian community of friends. They're always there for our family. They keep us accountable and focused on our relationship with Christ. We have a very deep, yet fun-loving, relationship with our friends. We can be very silly together, but ultimately lift each other up and point one another back to Christ in all things. This group of amazing friends all has kids close in age to ours! This baby will never lack built-in playmates and good, strong Christian influences in his/her life.
Lincoln, our inquisitive son, is so excited to have a new sibling. He's a remarkable brother to his little sister. He has such a helpful spirit and while he is very shy and timid at first - once he opens up, he's a whirlwind of fun, excitement, creativity and clever thinking!
Adalynn is our resident cuddle bug. She has such a joyful spirit and loves playing with her older brother and swinging in the park. She's our little daredevil princess. She's always playing dress up carrying around her little blankie and pretending to make tea. She also loves to climb on and try anything that her “Bubba" does.
|About Our Home in New Mexico|
We live in a 4 bedroom home on a quiet street just a hop, skip, and a jump away from three parks and the top rated library in the city! Our home is an environment of love, encouragement, and a safe place to truly be yourself. We love hosting events and sharing meals with our dear family and friends! This is where we come together under one roof as a family. This is where we will raise your child to be a kind, strong, and compassionate adult. This is the home where he/she will always know the door is open and our hearts are full of love for her/him. We are so excited to welcome your child into our home as he/she is already welcome in our hearts.
|Our Family and Family Traditions|
This is a family that is never short on traditions. Whether it’s weekly traditions such as cooking crepes and co-op school explorations; or annual traditions such as shooting off fireworks, Christmas advent calendars, unwrapping a Christmas book each night in December, special birthday breakfast feasts and taking turns saying something special about the birthday person and enjoying family reunions. But our favorite tradition of all happens every night before bedtime. We snuggle up as a family, read books together, say prayers, and ask the children what was their favorite part of the day. So much laughter and so many hugs and kisses are shared during this special family bonding time. Traditions are wonderful things to pass down from generation to generation, and we are looking forward to sharing these traditions and more with ALL our children!
|We live in the state of...|
New Mexico. We live near a zoo, Bio Park, Aquarium, mountains, the wilderness, and so much more! We attend story hour at the libraries regularly. The kids love going to the balloon museum for story hour, crafts and music time! New Mexico is a place to explore and let your imagination and adventurous spit lead you to find hidden waterfalls and secret caves. You can easily have the comforts of the city but the adventures of the outdoors at your fingertips!
Is in a quieter part of town. The schools in the immediate area are highly rated, so there are many younger families around us. There are several parks nearby and one that we quite frequently walk to in the evenings. There are public pools nearby for swimming lessons and fun! Compared to where we each grew up, the neighbors really seem to get in the spirit of Christmas and it's an endless delight to meander home during the holidays and see all the different lights and decorations.
