We met 28 years ago at a craft festival and dated a year before marrying each other. We had three children, all which are now grown. We decided our family wasn’t done growing and we opened our hearts and home up to adoption. We have loved every minute of it. Outside of our adoption journey we spend time with our family and that really makes us who we are. We enjoy Sunday lunches together and when we get time we travel to the mountains and sometimes the beach.
We live in a ranch style home with 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, recently remodeled. We live in a nice quiet, secure, and safe community where most of our neighbors have been here as long if not longer then we have have. We have resided here for our entire marriage and enjoy the stability and security our home provides. Our home has about 2 and 1/2 acres in which we grow a garden each summer, also raising goats, chickens, turkeys. We also have cats and dogs.
I am a caring and loving father who is dedicated to my family. I enjoy playing the piano, leading music on Sundays at church, and blacksmithing when I get time. I am a hard and dedicated worker who enjoys providing for my family’s needs.
I am a homemaker and love every minute. I have enjoyed raising all our children throughout the years. I am a dedicated and loving mother. Outside of being a mother I enjoy a good novel or TV when I have the time. I also enjoy summer activities such as swimming and going to Dollywood with our family. Over the years I have learned many things from raising children, with the most important being patience and understanding through all the big emotions.
