Our names are Carolyn and Philip Martin.
Carolyn is 36 years old and Philip is 37 years old.
Philip and I have been together for 7 years, and married for 6. We have previously fostered for almost 2 years in NH (4 placements, 6 children total), and now are licensed in Texas and have our second foster placement, a 2 year old girl. We have 2 daughters from Philip's previous marriage, Jennasis (age 15) and Adrielle (age 12) who currently live with their mother in NH and visit us about 6 weeks a year during school breaks and summer vacation.
Carolyn works full-time for MilliporeSigma as a Project Manager and have a flexible work schedule and work from home.
Philip works full-time for Novartis as a Associate Scientist about 30 minutes from our home.
Our faith is important to us and we regularly attend Solid Rock Church where we are looking to find a community group to be involved in. There are a number of foster and adoptive families at the church we can connect with for additional support.
Our extended family is incredibly supportive of our foster care journey and desire to adopt. Living on the same property as Philip's brother and his family gives us a lot of time to hang out together and share meals. We love to attend Aledo High School Football Games to support our niece and nephew in the marching band.
We are an active family who love all things outdoors and frequently go camping, hiking, walking, boating, fishing, play disc golf, and more!
We also love history and science and will explore museums, aquariums, science museums, and historical sites.
