We raise our children in a positive and uplifting environment
filled with fun and laughter. We believe in positive parenting
and peaceful solutions.
Having children already means we do many child-friendly
activities regularly. Water parks, beach trips, museums, zoos,
creeks, and trampoline parks are places we visit on a regular
basis. We enjoy petting zoos, apple picking, and pumpkin
patches in the fall. We enjoy visiting family in California during
We are an active and health conscious family. We are also very
adventurous. We love to explore nature and hike together on
our travels. We also enjoy things like kayaking, paddle-boarding,
snorkeling, riding quads in the desert, scooter rides, whale
watching and hunting for crabs at the beach. In our family, your
child would be encouraged to pursue any sports or
extracurricular activities he or she is interested in. The girls
currently enjoy gymnastics, ice skating and soccer. They have
also taken dance and swimming lessons.
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. Our
oldest daughter currently attends a highly rated school with a
Spanish Immersion program.
We are active in church (non-denominational) and appreciate
the community our church provides.
We live in a wonderful area. There are several parks, pools and splash pads within our own neighborhood. We were thrilled to find a splash pad within walking distance to our home. Our neighborhood hosts "Food Truck Friday" every month where we enjoy eating BBQ brisket, taking pony rides and listening to live music.
Our home itself is very comfortable and child friendly. We intentionally sought to purchase a one story home complete with enough cozy carpet for the little ones to run and play carefree. The home is located on a quiet cul de sac street. The girls love to ride their scooters and bikes around our street with the next door neighbors. Our home has four bedrooms plus an extra room that we currently use as a playroom/guest bed room.
WHAT SARA SAYS ABOUT ADAM
Adam is a wonderful father and very good with children. Maybe every adoptive wife says that about her husband, but it really is true of Adam. Even before we were married and had our own kids, I noticed that children were drawn to Adam and wanted to be around him. He was extremely patient. When we would attend family gatherings, he would spend lots of time playing "tea party" and other make-believe games with my niece. I knew he was a keeper. Since having our own children Adam has not changed. He has proven himself to be a patient and faithful father. The girls can't wait for him to get home from work every day. Adam is a fantastic teacher and coach for the kids. He takes the time to teach them new skills at their own level and is sure to include them on outings and projects around the house.
As a husband, Adam has been like a supportive friend. He is patient with all my many ideas.
A LITTLE MORE
Adam has a laid-back
personality. He loves to relax but he also loves to rough
house! The girls can count on him for laughter and fun.
He is a very hard worker and provider. On his days off,
he enjoys lifting weights in the garage or mowing the
yards. He also regularly takes each daughter on their
own special “daddy-daughter date”. They are each able
to feel like a special princess.
Adam grew up in a rural town in Southern Illinois. He
was second of three boys and one girl. He went to
college in Indiana where he met Sara. He has a duel
Bachelor’s degree and works as a Trainer for a large oil
company. While he is passionate about all sports, he
especially loves Soccer.
WHAT ADAM SAYS ABOUT SARA
Where to start Sara has exceeded my expectations from Day 1. She is a wonderful wife, a compassionate mother, and a complete friend. She is never afraid to take a stand for what is right. Sara is definitely not a morning person. Usually, she needs a couple cups of coffee and an hour or two before she really feels awake! I like to think Sara is the brains, and I am the legs. She will come up with many ideas and plans, but usually I have to make sure they are carried out to completion. Sara is a great cook. She makes many delicious and healthy meals ranging from chili to couscous (I didn’t know what it was either) and everything in between. Sara likes to run and play horse with the girls for exercise! Sara is beautiful and humble, principled and compassionate, wise and full of laughter. Most importantly, she loves Jesus and lives her life to show others His love for them. She will make an extraordinary mother for your child.
A LITTLE MORE
Sara was born and raised in
California. Sara is an enthusiastic and creative personality. She
is blessed to be a stay-at-home mom. Sara loves to go running
in her spare time. Even in extreme weather conditions. She
loves to try new things and especially loves beach trips in the
summer time. Sara has given birth three times and found
pregnancy to be difficult. She has a large amount of respect for
women facing the decision to place their child for adoption.
Before choosing to be a stay-at home mom, Sara worked with
foster children and children with special needs. Sara also
enjoys playing her guitar.
