|More About Our Family
Patty was raised Catholic, and Jamie discovered his faith in high school as a Baptist. With that diverse background, we both have a strong sense of what God is and how he has blessed us with his work in our lives. As a Christian family, we teach our children to love and respect Jesus through their Christian preschool, catechism after school, attending church and always saying our prayers as a family before bed. Our family would not exist without His many blessings, and we keep that forever in our hearts.
Soroya is our oldest daughter, and she is our rambunctious, curious, intelligent leader. She loves playing drums and piano, dancing to music, snuggling with our cats, and making pancakes. She's also always down for a trip outside to dig up bugs and worms and go fishing. She's definitely the tomboy of our two girls, and we love that about her. She's also sensitive and caring and makes us more and more proud every day.
Isadora (Izzy) is our youngest and yet couldn't be more different from her sister. Our resident "princess," Izzy's favorite activities are ballet, chatting about school, and holding fashion shows in the playroom, especially if she gets her hair braided like Elsa from Frozen. She is also very intelligent, has an ever-growing sense of humor, and her open sense of admiration for her big sister is so very heartwarming.
The best thing about our girls is how much they love each other, and how much they want another sibling to love. We value their differences and always make decisions based on what is best for each of them individually.
