Down to earth and stable family

Thank you for taking the time to read our profile. We think you are so brave for taking this step towards adoption, and we admire you for doing what is best for you. We are an active, stable, creative, and loving couple hoping to add one more member to our happy family.
Education, family, spirituality and nature are what we value most. We believe in bedtime stories and family dinners. We both work from home, and always have, so we have tons of time to spend with a child. We are always learning something new, practice yoga regularly, eat from our organic urban garden, and spend a lot of time outside kayaking, walking and gardening. We've been together and lived in our home for 10 years, so we are very stable.
We are open to a newborn to older infant/toddler, and we accept and embrace all races! We have adopted and biracial family members, so we are very comfortable with diversity.
We are looking forward to meeting you.

Who We Are

We met 10 years ago while out with friends. We had mutual friends for over 15 years, but never met until that night. It was "first sight" for us, and we've been together ever since.
Since then we spend every day together, most of the day. We walk together, kayak, run races, everything together, and we are truly partners. We both work from home so we have all meals together. We value nightly family dinners.
We have a large organic garden, an urban farm of sorts, that we eat from most of the year. We have chickens for eggs, and a large fenced in yard that is an oasis in metro Atlanta. We have all of the access to the education and opportunities Atlanta provides, while still maintaining a farm environment.
The things that we value most are education, spirituality, health, and emotional wellness. We both meditate and do yoga daily.
Four years ago we started trying to have a family of our own, but could not after several miscarriages. It was a really hard time for us, but it has made us that much stronger! We believe our losses will make us even better parents, because we appreciate how precious a child truly is.
We raised my now grown daughter together. Her name is Lilith, and she is 22. She makes us so proud. She is about to finish her BA, and successfully lives on her own. We are very close and talk daily.
Christy taught yoga to the public and unprivileged youth for years, while Michael grew up as a boy scout and Eagle scout.
We feel we have so much time and attention to give a child.

Fall is here

The temps are dropping, the sky is grey. Time for fall, which is the best time for hiking to me!! I use less water and can go farther than in summer. I welcome the cold!
