I would like the opportunity to share some things about my husband and I. We an intelligent, kind and happy couple. We can be the goofiest and funniest people when we are around each other. I think we agree, that our favorite thing to do, is laugh. So, we laugh about silly things and we laugh about the crazy things. At the same time, we are honest, loving and compassionate. We look after and care for one another. We have a passion for justice and humanity. My husband actively attends church and I meditate & pray every day.
We were not without our own problems. We faced some challenges in our twenties. We met in college when I was only 19 and he was 20. I always tell people, that we grew up together. We are now 38 and 39 years old. In all honesty, while “growing up together” we faced our own challenges such as figuring out what we wanted out of life. My husband recently made a life altering decision to change careers. He realized he just wasn’t happy being a lawyer. He now works as a truck driver.
Last year, I received my license for professional counseling. I work with children ages 3-12 as well as adults, parents and families.
We have waited for the right time to consider adopting a baby, until our financial situation was secure and until we had a nice home. We are blessed to say that we have so much to be thankful for…but to be honest I wish we had a little baby to look after.
We live in a 3 bedroom, 2 full bath home. We also have a sunroom that we recently renovated:). The total square footage is 1600. We have a nice big fenced backyard with lots of space for a swing set, treehouse and/or trampoline. We live on a cul de sac and therefore do not have any nonresidents driving down our street. It is a quiet neighborhood with other middle class families who look after their homes with as much care as we do. We are friends with one of our neighbors and from time to time get together with them. We live near parks, good private schools, and libraries.
The traits that make me a good partner are: I'm very empathetic, loyal, genuine, honest, and a good friend. I take the time to listen to my husband.
The traits that will make me a great parent are: I know I will be loving, compassionate and empathetic towards my future child. But I also believe in the value of setting boundaries and limits for children so that they become good people who will (hopefully) do good things in the world.
I am also an educator and would want my child to get a good education. At the same time I believe children should be heard and have the opportunity to enjoy their childhood being innocent and playful.
The traits that make me a good husband are: I am intelligent and care about humanity. I am loving, funny and affectionate. Neither one of us is afraid to show the other how much we love the other, and so, there is no doubt in our minds about our love for one another.
The traits that will make me a good parent are being playful, loving, and taking a general interest in my future child so that he/she grows and develops into a good, moral citizen of the world. I believe education of a child is multi-faceted. As a naturally playful and loving person, I will play outdoors and teach my child to enjoy playing and learning from nature.
Other positive traits I have are having respect for elders. We both plan to educate our future child about the value of relationships with parents and grandparents.
