We were co-workers, friends, and roommates for 4 years prior to our relationship. We fell in love and the rest is history! We've been together for over 7 years and married for 6. Our relationship is built on lots of love and laughter and an appreciation of who we are as individuals. We have family close by that are very supportive and friends who've been there for us from the start. We're big into animal rescue and have tons of pets. We also enjoy movies, music, camping, and nature. I'm a very nurturing, mothering person with a background in being a nanny, nursing aide, and vet tech. My husband is extremely driven with a talent for computers, cars, and anything technological or mechanical. Our relationship is amazing, through good times and challenging times, we find strength in one another. We're truly devoted to being the best parents- fun, patient, understanding, accepting, and loving.
We live in a suburban neighborhood outside of Austin, Texas. It's a family friendly place with nice neighbors, lots of trees, and a large park nearby that includes playground equipment, a gated pool, and fun community events. There are many excellent schools in the area and my husbands job and parents are only five minutes down the road. Everyone is very excited and supportive of our adoption plans. We've been in our home since January 2012. It consists of three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and is filled with love, laughter, and cuddly pets who are great around children. We love watching movies filled with action and comedy, enjoy having bbq's with family, and always have music flowing throughout our home. We have a full nursery that is ready for a baby with a gender neutral animal theme. We have a beautiful crib, changer, stuffed animals, and everything else you can imagine. The crib is a convertible that can easily be turned into a toddler bed too and lots of toys and books for an older child. We take great pride in our home, it's warm, laid-back, and inviting. My husband is a handy man and takes care of the lawn, gardening, cars, computers, and anything else that needs updating. I enjoy cooking delicious dinners every night, playing games, reading, decorating our home, and making crafts. In the spring and autumn months, we go camping with our dogs and look at the stars while cuddling next to the fire. In the summer, we go to the beach with family and love browsing the local shops. We always celebrate holidays with decorations on Christmas, egg hunts on Easter, and even dress up for Halloween. We're just a fun couple who would love to share it with a child who would make us feel whole. We can’t wait to grow our family and welcome a child into our home!
Marrying my husband is the best thing that ever happened to me. I've never known anyone to be so devoted to family and determined to make a life for us. He's always taking on home improvement projects and works equally as hard at work. At home, he's laid-back, enjoys our pets, watching movies, and spending time outdoors. I've always known that he'd make an amazing dad someday.
