While in college, two friends of ours invited us to play soccer (we both played soccer in college). It was only the four of us playing together. The two of us were on the same team against the other two. Sara paid no attention to me (Adam) and didn't even remember my name a year later when we came in contact again! However, I soon got Sara’s attention and we fell in love. We were married in California where Sara grew up then moved to North Carolina where I got a job. We actually decided to relocate back to California and drove all the way across the country together. But, after 5 years, my company relocated us to Texas. We now live in a diverse and exciting area that provides us with many opportunities. We have grown closer and stronger through the changes of life. We are friends and companions first. We know that the success to any marriage is to keep Christ at the center. We enjoy going on weekend getaway trips and date nights. Parenting takes unity and teamwork which we are constantly improving at. We love each other and are dedicated to our roles as husband and wife before anything else.
We strive to raise our children in a positive and uplifting environment filled with fun, laughter, and creativity. We are active in church and appreciate the community our church provides.
In our family, your child would be encouraged to pursue the extracurricular activities he or she is interested in. We are an active family. The girls love their gymnastics, soccer and ice-skating lessons. Sara is blessed to stay home.
Education is very important to us. Our area has many educational opportunities including good private schools, a strong school district, and a large home-school group.
Having kids means we do lots of kid-friendly activities already. Water parks, beach trips, Chick-fil-a runs, museums, zoos and trampoline parks are places we frequent. We also enjoy visiting amusement parks like Lego Land, Six Flags, and Sea World.
We like to travel and don't mind taking spontaneous trips. Sara's family is from California and also owns a vacation home in Nevada. Adam's family is from Southern Illinois. We feel very fortunate to visit these places regularly.
Our oldest is 5 years old. She is spirited, energetic, fearless and curious. She is also loving and tender-hearted towards others. She is very excited about the possibility of having another sibling and about adopting. She was a great helper decorating baby's nursery. She loves to pick flowers and catch lizards! She has no fear of bugs or dirt. She is very creative. When asked about adoption she says "We will take care of the baby and love the baby"
Our second daughter loves to be silly and make people laugh. She is 4 years old. She's as cute as they come. When she starts talking you cant help but listen. She loves to dance and dress up in tutus, dresses and princess outfits. She is clever, talented, compassionate and a peace maker. She loves her sisters and is especially watchful of baby sister. She is sure to give her little sister a kiss and hug whenever she needs it. When asked about adoption she says: "We can name the baby sparkles!"
ELIZABETH (little Liz)
Our youngest is two. She also loves to make others laugh. She was a very easy going, calm baby. As a toddler, she is very kind and gentle with other children. We've been sure to mention the "new baby" frequently so she is ready for the arrival of a new child. She enjoys pointing out other "babies" when we are out and about. We've been talking about the new baby while decorating the nursery as well. Some of her favorite things to do are: splash in puddles and play dress up with her sister's shoes.
Our dogs are Baber and Beauty. Baber is a tiny Chihuahua and Beauty is a Rhodesian Ridge-back. They are an interesting and entertaining pair. Ridge-backs can grow quite large. They are very opposite in size yet they play very well together and love to run wild in the house when they get the chance.
