We were introduced by mutual friends who thought we would hit it off because we're both from the same area. On our first date we talked about how we had both loved living abroad in Latin America. We dated for several years before deciding to get married. We spent the time getting to know each other and how we each approach life. Today we have a relationship built on love and trust.
Now we are ready to begin a family, and are excited (and a little nervous!) to begin the adoption journey.
We live in a city with easy access to great museums, parks, and historical sites. Our neighborhood is very diverse and is within walking distance of several schools and parks. We have been here for over six years, and we still enjoy exploring the city and all it has to offer.
We live near a great park with lots of trails. We like to go there for hikes, bike rides, or to just hang out for a picnic.
Our dog is a big part of our lives. He has a funny little walk that always attracts a lot of attention on the street, and makes people smile. We love to curl up on the couch with him.
Jennifer is the caretaker in our family - she is always looking out for family and is known for being a loyal friend. She is passionate about her work and supporting causes she believes in. She is a mentor at the high school down the street and serves as a volunteer adviser for several non-profits. She also loves to travel and explore new places, and is a great cook! She will be a fantastic mom.
Kelly will be such a fun father. He has a great imagination and creative side. He performs with a theater group and is always looking for plays and interesting things for us to see in the city. He will take our child on many adventures. When he is confronted with a challenge, he likes to look at all sides of the issue and think about the best path forward. He will help teach our child how to think for him or herself.
