|More About Our Family
|Our Family and Traditions|
Jon's mother and brother live within an hour of our home and come over for dinner each week. Kristen's large extended family (brother and sister, niece, parents, aunts and uncles, cousins, etc) lives in California, and we visit them once or twice a year.
Each season brings something fun and new to our household. In the summer, we visit the zoo often (they just added a dinosaur world!) and float down the lazy river at the water park. Fall is filled with picking apples, eating pumpkin rolls, and dressing up for Halloween. In the winter, we watch all of our favorite Christmas movies, drink lots of hot chocolate, and go ice-skating and sledding.
We are actively involved in our inner city, multi-cultural Christian church. Jon is part of the finance team while Kristen helps with the Children's ministry. We believe that a part of living out our faith means serving others who may be homeless, refugees, or individuals needing special care and attention. Additionally, we make prayer a priority each day as we have seen the power of prayer to change our lives and the lives of others. We are part of a community group at church where two other families have adopted children.

|Future Contact with Birth Family|

One of our greatest joys in life is serving God by serving other people. We love to be there for our friends and family who have a need, even if it's just by making them dinner or sending them a card to cheer them up. We hope to have the opportunity to do the same for you and your child. If you'd like more information or would like to speak with us, please contact Lifetime Adoption at 1(800) 923-6784.
