|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
Gabe and Hannah spend a lot of time with their family when they aren't working. Gabe is very hands on/fix it type of guy who loves to buy broken tractors, fix them, and resell them. He loves the outdoors and working on our property. Hannah loves to sing, she has been singing her whole life. She has sang on worship teams for her church and school. Hannah went to school for music and vocal jazz and then transferred to a Bible College where she met the mutual friend that introduced her and Gabe.
Hannah and Gabe attend a Christian Calvary Church and have both grown up in the Christian faith. Hannah was a pastor's kid growing up as well. Gabe grew up going to the church every Tuesday with his mom and siblings to help clean the church, he eventually became apart of the staff of the church he grew up in and worked in maintenance. Hannah and Gabe see their faith as a deep relationship with God, not just a practiced religion. They are committed and deeply rooted in faith. They plan to raise their children to know God for themselves and to help guide them through their questions and thoughts.
|Our Musical Interest|
Gabe's parents encouraged all of their children in music, as did Hannah's parents. Gabe has played drums for 13+ years, he even played in several bands, one of which was well known. Once he joined the military, drums became less of a career focus and stayed a passion. Hannah has been singing her whole life. She has been in several different choirs and competed in vocal jazz competitions growing up. Hannah and Gabe both have a deep love and appreciation for music, it is definitely apart of their life. They both hope that their children will be invested in learning a musical instrument as well.
|About Our Home|
We met through a mutual friend and within 7 months of dating we were married. Our love story was incredible and we truly see God's hand in placing us together. We live in a sweet and quaint house on 7+ acres of property! We live next to (in a separate house) Gabe's oldest brother and his wife and kids as well. We joke that this is a family compound, yet are so grateful to do life together! Gabe's second oldest brother lives two houses from us and his in laws live next to us. Gabe's parents and sister live on the same property as each other and are only 5 minutes from us! We enjoy doing life together whether that means attending church together, having bbq's, game nights, family outings to thrift stores and fun activities.We have animals here on the property that are loving and truly living the farm life outside! We love to host people and build relationships with them through inviting them into our home.
We will be adopting our first child! We have wanted to adopt regardless of if we could have biological children, however, infertility has brought us here and we believe that adoption is something special we will cherish forever. We plan to adopt in the future as well as we have a loving home and a passion for adoption.
|We live in the state of...|
We live in beautiful Southern California! We love the weather here where we have our choice of living in the countryside but not being too far from the beach!
We live in a rural area with a lot of trees and several acres of land. We have many fruit trees and plant gardens often so we can eat our own fruits and veggies from the land! We live on the same property as Gabe's oldest brother and his wife and kids. They have 4 kids ranging from 1 year old to 9 years old. We have a fenced in pool where we love to have people over, host BBQ's, birthday parties and family get togethers. Gabe's other brother lives two houses away and his parents live 5 minutes away. Being close knit with our family has always been something we are passionate about. Our neighbors are friendly and inviting and we all stay connected and get together sometimes.
