We both have amazing parents and siblings. While we live in Arkansas, our family is spread throughout the country! The distance makes it a challenge in some ways, however we are in communication with them often. We also embrace the opportunity to visit them and for them to visit us.
Our family was so excited to learn of our decision to adopt. We have considered moving closer to family in the future, but we also really enjoy our church family and we value their influence in our lives. Our church includes many families with small children, so we are excited to grow our family alongside all of them.
We have 3 grown kids between the both of us. Our oldest son is married and in Special Forces in the Army based in North Carolina. Our daughter is a chef and student in Boulder, Colorado. Our youngest son is heading off to college in the fall in Oklahoma. They are all so different yet such amazing, talented, creative and kind people. We couldn't be more proud of them if we tried! They are all excited to welcome a sibling into our family!
We especially love the Christmas holiday season. We enjoy the opportunity to embrace the joy it brings and to bless people in extravagant ways! Time with family is so valuable to us, and while it may not be abundant in quantity, we value its quality.
