Q: When you have a 3-day weekend, what you like to do?
A: If we have a chance for a get away, we love Palm Springs and Arizona. We have friends with a house in Palm Springs, at least once a year we all go together (3-4 families) and play games, hang out by the pool and each couple is in charge of a meal for the group. We also have friends in Arizona that we visit twice a year. We always go out for spring training.
Q: Do you have pets? If so, tell us about them.
A: Yes, we have a 4-year-old Boston Terrier named Zoey.
Q: What do you hope to teach your child(ren)?
A: We want to teach them to be hard-working, and goal oriented as well as kind and respectful to others. We have traditions for all the holidays that we are excited to pass on.
Q: What will you tell your child about his or her birthmom?
A: How much they are loved by her and how she was so selfless to try to give them the best life possible. Also anything that is important to her for them to know.
Q: Are you active in your church? Tell us about your activities.
A: We attend church regularly and have received all of our sacraments. We are not regularly a part of the ministries, but have fed the homeless when our church hosts them for a week in the winter and participated in the adopt-a-family program at Christmas. We donate a turkey at Thanksgiving too.
Q: How will a child enrich your life?
A: We have such a strong supportive relationship and feel it will only get stronger with a child. We are excited to experience life through their eyes.
Q: Describe your last vacation and/or daytrip.
A: We recently went to Santa Barbara for our 8th wedding anniversary. We spent time at the pool, walked on the beach and enjoyed local area shopping. We found some fun restaurants to try and played trivia at the hotel one night.
Q: Will you be a stay-at-home parent? If so, what are your day-to-day plans?
A: Jessica will be a stay-at-home mom. She plans to use her creative background to find interesting learning games and activities. Also, there are a lot of young moms in the neighborhood who get together for play dates. Most of our friends have young children as well, so there are many opportunities to get together with other children. The city and library have Mommy and Me events I would like to participate in.
Q: When you close your eyes and see yourself holding your precious baby in your arms, what are your thoughts regarding his or her birth mother?
A: So grateful to her for giving us the opportunity and trusting us to raise her baby. She will always be thought of fondly and positively.
