We have two daughters now who are turning 7 and 9 this year, and are hoping to add a son to our family between 0-12 years old.We'd also consider a bonded sibling group of two. We are open to children of any ethnicity or heritage and know that not only would they be welcome and loved in our home, but our community also has many families of blended races and cultures. We are willing to keep in contact with important people in the child's life through phone calls, and visits as appropriate, the frequency of which would be dictated according to their distance from our home in Virginia.
In the interest of safety for all involved, we do ask that the child not have a current significant history of violence towards other children or sexually acting out. We ask that the child be physically and mentally capable of participating in the activities that we regularly enjoy as a family.
Kenny is a full time realtor and enjoys the benefits of a flexible schedule and much more time at home with the family! With the schedule being so flexible, it has also opened up opportunities to become more involved in church, such as hosting Bible studies, and we are starting a new ministry together to focus on foster/kinship/adoptive families. He is active, patient, and a great father. He helps with homework. He regularly encourages himself and others to reach their full potential.
Stephanie is an RN and enjoys working at an OBGYN office with a regular Mon-Fri schedule. She enjoys things such as cooking new recipes for the family, watching movies together, and going to the beach. She is kind and empathetic, always willing and able to see things from the other's point of view in order to understand what they're going through
Trista is turning 9 this year and going into 4th grade. She'd like everyone to know that she is kind, sweet, and likes to share. She's thoughtful and enjoys making special cards and presents for people. She likes crafts, drawing, reading, and watching movies in her quiet time. She plays well with others and loves meeting new people.
Charlize (Charlie) is 6 years old and going into 1st grade. She'd like everyone to know that she is nice... and really wants a brother! She enjoys playing with other children and being active. She loves running around outside, riding her bike, and catching things like bugs and frogs.
Both children have been asking for over two years now when they will finally have an adopted brother.
We live in a beautiful 2,700 sq ft. home with 5 bedrooms. Plenty of room for more family! We enjoy a nice suburban waterfront community and like to go swimming in the pool, take walks on the beach, and fish and crab off the community pier.
As a family we enjoy a wide variety of activities. We have amusement parks close by like Busch Gardens and Water Country which we go to all summer long. We play mini golf, go bowling, go to the zoo, watch movies and play video games as a family. We love fishing and crabbing, swimming, beach days, and we love to travel new places! We all enjoy trying new things and would love sharing these experiences with a new member of the family.
We have several schools in the area and the children enjoy the elementary school they attend now. The other children have been kind and accepting of others from our experience, and the teachers have been willing to make accommodations in the class room as needed.
We have been very blessed as far as child care is concerned. With Kenny's job being so flexible, child care is rarely needed. If so, wonderful family close by has been happy to step in. They are all supportive and excited to add another member to our family.
