We have been married for 20 years, after meeting in college. Avy joined our family through adoption 6 years ago, and we are so excited for her to have a brother or sister.
We look forward to spending time with family and friends. Avy enjoys spending time with her cousins on both sides of the family - at the beach and in the mountains.
Our parents are retired and love to travel. Avy spends "camp time" with each set of grandparents every summer and enjoys swimming, trips to the zoo, and camping out in the R.V.
We live in a friendly community with wonderful schools, parks, and community events. We live close to ball fields, a lake, playgrounds, and hiking and biking trails. We enjoy going to plays, festivals, and concerts. There are many young families in our neighborhood, so our children will have plenty of kids to play with.
Jen is a wonderful wife, mother, and friend. She loves her job as a pediatric pharmacist, but her favorite things involve her family. She and Avy love to play dress up and put on dance shows. Saturday morning craft activities usually involve a lot of glitter. Around the house, she enjoys growing vegetables and sewing.
The thing that first drew me to Steve was his compassion and caring for other people. He is an incredibly patient and fun-loving Dad. He and Avy regularly learn about new things together - naming the stars or identifying butterflies.
As an environmental engineer he enjoys working on projects that involve saving our natural resources. He loves to be outside - hiking or camping. Making s'mores on the first is his cooking specialty!
