|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
Being a retired military family, we believe that it is only natural that we try to explore every corner of the world. New Orleans, Los Angeles, Puerto Rico, and the Bahamas are some of our favorite places so far. While living in Georgia, we love visiting the beach. We also really enjoy seeing movies, visiting festivals, zoos, amusement parks and sporting events (Go Falcons!!!). Marissa is a great cook and looks forward to exploring and reviving some of her childhood memories of family dinners.
Our faith is a very important part of our lives. We both are actively involved in a variety of church ministries. In addition, we believe that it is our faith that has led us to our adoption journey. We also believe that being a Christian is a lifestyle and we try our best to live as such throughout each and every day. We have been blessed beyond measure in so many ways throughout our life together and in return, we put forth the utmost effort to be a blessing to and love others in the way that God intended.
|Our Musical Interest|
We both love and appreciate all types of music! We both enjoy listening to Gospel, R & B, and Hip Hop music. We also enjoy more diverse music types such as Pop and Country.
|About Our Home|
We are currently living in a family-friendly community in Georgia. There are nice schools, pools, a playground and a nearby beach in our neighborhood. Being a part of a military family provides countless opportunities for adventure, priceless learning experiences, exposure to different cultures, and a catalog of memories to be carried on to the next generation.
We have an amazing daughter by the name of Tizah. She is a sophomore in college and not far from home. Tizah enjoys spending time with family and arts and crafts. She is pursuing a degree in education and she loves children.
|We live in the state of...Georgia!!|
We live a small town in Georgia that is just a short distance from several beaches!
We have a very loving and inviting home nestled in a quiet, tight-knit neighborhood located in a military community. We love to spend time with family and friends playing fun games and hosting Sunday dinners. Our small subdivision is family friendly, has wonderful neighbors and lots of pets and children
