|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
We love spending time together as a couple and with our close-knit group of friends. We enjoy exercising together whether going hiking, biking, or running. We participate in several 5 & 10Ks throughout the year and find it to be a great bonding experience. We also enjoy volunteering together with a meal delivery service. We enjoy exploring our city, trying out different restaurants, sampling foods from different cultures, and traveling.
-We speak a total of 5 languages between us.
-We have traveled to 18 states and 6 countries together.
-We have run several 5k and 10k races together.
-Wanjiku has 3 college degrees and works as a nurse anesthetist - puts people to sleep for surgery.
-Kleb has 7 siblings and 14 nephews and nieces.
-We both want to visit Spain desperately - Kleb for the soccer and Wanjiku for the food.
We are a Christian couple who regularly attends church. We were both brought up in church and attended Christian schools all our lives. Our church is non-denominational and has a very diverse congregation. Wanjiku also attends a Kenyan Christian church with her parents regularly. We enjoy learning and growing in our faith and plan to share our faith and values with our child.
|Our Musical Interest|
We enjoy a wide-range of musical genres. Some of our favorites include Nigerian/Afro-pop, Caribbean, R&B, neo-soul, Zouk, Kompa, Reggaeton, and jazz. Wanjiku enjoys country music as well.
|About Our Home|
We live in a 2 story house in a quiet neighborhood in Georgia. We have a beautiful, 4 bedroom home with a fenced-in backyard in a cul-de-sac. There are several parks, churches, and restaurants within a 5 mile radius of our house. Our home is decorated mostly by items from our travels including paintings from the Citadel in Haiti, Masai sculptures from Kenya, bejeweled butterfly from Mexico, slingshot from Jamaica, etc. We enjoy taking care of our home both on the inside and outside. It is our sanctuary!
We have no children of our own YET. We have struggled with infertility for four years and have come to believe that we are meant to be parents through the blessing of adoption.
We live in a diverse and friendly neighborhood that has lots of young families. Our subdivision has amenities including a swimming pool, tennis courts, and a clubhouse where we regularly attend get-togethers including Halloween, pool parties, winter chili cook-offs, and Christmas parties. Wanjiku is a member of the event planning committee and therefore knows lots of neighbors. Our neighborhood is safe and close to many good schools, parks, stadiums, aquarium, zoo, and many other amenities (shops, restaurants, etc). We live close to a beautiful hiking trail that extends for 50 miles! This is our favorite biking spot. We very much enjoy where we live.

We would love to meet you.
