Joseph and Patricia

Joseph and Patricia

About us:

We first met when we were in high school while working at a local supermarket. We were very friendly and enjoyed each other’s company. Fast forward 15 years and Joe is moving back home from Virginia and who should he meet online but Tricia. After that we emailed each other constantly for two weeks. We finally met face to face at a local Irish pub for dinner. At the risk of sounding corny, by the end of the night we were “in love,” and six months later we were engaged.

Tricia is a middle school special education teacher and Joe works as a training consultant for a medical software firm.

Hobbies and special activities you look forward to sharing with your child:

Joe is a big reader and loves to settle down with a good book. He loves history, music and art and anytime he can see a concert or museum he jumps at it. As a young man he played hockey he is now hoping to start up again soon.

Tricia loves baking. She bakes everything with her specialty being Irish scones and bread. She also enjoys watching movies, playing board games, dancing, and seeing theater shows.  Tricia is also an avid collector of children’s books and looks forward to sharing this passion!

As a couple, we really enjoy rooting our local teams on especially the hockey, baseball and football. Any time we can get tickets we jump at the chance. We also love to prepare delicious food and spend time with friends and family and all of their children. We look forward to sharing all our favorite hobbies and passions with our child, and cannot wait for the day to come!

Holiday gatherings:

Holidays are hosted in our home and we have family and friends young and old join us. We always feel the more the merrier. Thanksgiving is always a sit down turkey dinner. Christmas Eve is an open house and then Christmas Day we host dinner. Halloween means decorating the house and the annual Halloween Parade. Being Irish, means St. Patrick’s Day has all of the traditional music, food and drink at the house. We look forward to celebrating Easter, along with all the holidays, with our little one and setting up a traditional Easter egg hunt.

Our home and neighborhood:

Our home is very traditional, and as we like to say, full of character. We have three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Our house is filled with photos of family and friends and we decorate it for each and every holiday. We live right next to a conservation area that is great for when we walk our dog Mollie. The neighborhood has a lot of children in it and we have become their unofficial auntie and uncle.

Ethan and Jodi

Ethan and Jodi

About us:

We met the old fashioned way – online! We had our first date right before Jodi was going out of town to visit family and talked every night she was away. The more we talked we realized that we had a lot in common. Our relationship developed quickly and we both knew pretty fast we had found someone wonderful and we had a special bond. Jodi has been a Speech Language Pathologist in an urban elementary school for the last 14 years and loves working with kids. Ethan is an Accounting Manager for a large commercial bank and luckily is good with money!

Qualities we see in each other:

From Ethan: Jodi is a loving, caring, thoughtful individual. She is very patient when dealing with problems. She is good with children, so I know she’ll be a great mother. Jodi seems to know what to say when talking with kids and children; they always seem to gravitate to her when we are out with friends and family. Watching the way Jodi interacts and loves our dog, makes me know that she has all the qualities of a wonderful mother!

From Jodi: I know Ethan is going to be a great Dad! He’s very sensitive and always takes others feelings to heart when making decisions. He’s playful and likes to joke around but also knows when to be serious. Ethan’s fair and is a good compromiser. He’s warm, loyal, and always puts family first. Ethan is so excited to share his life with a child ….. He’s really just a kid at heart! (and he’s excited to have someone to play video games with!!)

What we like to do:

We live in a great city and enjoy visiting new stores and restaurants, exploring the historical sights, and visiting the museums. We share a love of traveling, taking our dog on day trips, and seeing different cultural sights. We also have a great love of nature and have been to several national parks around the country over the past few years. We can’t wait to share these adventures with our child. Jodi enjoys reading, traveling, and being outside. She loves exploring new restaurants and museums. Ethan likes watching sports and movies, playing golf, and hiking.

Our family:

We’re lucky that we both have loving supportive families. While both sets of grandparents are out of town, we get to see them often and they plan on visiting more frequently when another grandchild joins the family. Our child will have two uncles and three aunts, as well as 4 boy cousins welcoming them. We also have extended family in the area and everyone is looking forward to welcoming a new addition!

Talking about adoption:

We plan to tell our child how lucky he/she is to have so many adults that love him or her. We plan on being honest and open from the beginning. Our child will know how fortunate he/she is that a birth plan was made. We look forward to sharing pictures and stories throughout our child’s life with birth parents.

Our home:

While we currently live in a condo in an urban setting, we’re in the process of buying a family friendly home in a diverse suburb. Our new neighborhood is full of families and we have a spacious yard with lots of room to play!  We cannot wait to welcome a new baby into our hearts and into our home!

Joe and Ali

Joe and Ali

About us:

We met almost 11 years ago while we were out with different groups of friends. We accidently bumped into each other and started talking. Joe still claims to this day that Ali tripped him. A few nights later we made plans to meet again and have been together ever since.

Our relationship grew quickly; we had so much fun spending time together. Whether we were hanging out at Joe’s apartment or out with friends, we were always laughing. In just over 4 years of dating, we were married.  We both feel at ease in each other’s presence and cannot imagine life without the other.  Many people would describe us as having easygoing demeanors, but we are also driven to build a successful and enjoyable life for our family. We feel it is important not to take life too seriously.

Ali is a Real Estate Agent and Joe is Director of Sales for a global technology company. Ali is planning on spending her time at home when the baby arrives. Once the baby is settled Ali will consider working part-time. Luckily, both Ali and Joe have flexible work schedules which allow them to work from home or schedule around family priorities.

What we do for fun:

Ali enjoys reading, spending time with her girlfriends, hiking, and cooking. Joe enjoys exercising, watching football, golfing, fishing and grilling. As a couple, we enjoy cooking, traveling and watching movies together.

Qualities we see in each other:

What Ali says about Joe: Joe is hard working, smart (sometimes even nerdy) and very motivated to succeed. In addition, he is extremely friendly and easy to be around.  Joe is someone you can count on in both good times and bad, with advice, support or humor.

What Joe says about Ali: There is no better way to describe Ali than to say she is beautiful, inside and out. She is extremely kind and fair, always willing to support her friends and family. Joe also admires Ali around patience and comfort around children; she was born to be a mother.

Special activities we look forward to doing with our child:

We are looking forward to spending summers at the cape with our child where they will learn how to swim, row a boat, and fish. Our family has a property on the water with a small beach, perfect for summer fun. We are also looking forward to traveling with them, going to sporting events, and taking our dog Rocky for walks to the park. We have many friends with young children and hope to surround our child with many friends and family.

Extended family and holidays:

Both Joe and Ali are very close with their families. Joe’s sister has two little girls (6 and 4) and Ali’s cousins (11 and 9) are all very excited to have a baby in the family. We are always making plans to meet up and spend time with our sisters and cousins. Ali’s parents live nearby and spend a lot of time over the house. Unfortunately, Joe’s mom passed away several years ago but his Dad is retired and very active in his grandchildren’s lives.

Our holidays are always filled with lots of family and friends. We love hosting holidays this past Thanksgiving we had 20 guests for a sit down dinner. For Christmas we will travel to NY to see Joe’s family and our adorable nieces.

Our home and neighborhood:

We live in a suburban neighborhood with ample outdoor space to walk the dog and explore. Our home has lots of room for children including a large kitchen opening into an extended family room. The home was designed with a nursery located right next door to the master bedroom.  The backyard is a great place to run around and play. In addition, we have a large in ground pool (which is safely fenced in), which will be great for summer swimming.

Paul and Gretchen

Paul and Gretchen

Our Story:

Remarkably, Gretchen and Paul grew up only a couple hours from each other, visited the same historical sites and ball parks with our families as kids, went to colleges on opposite shores of Lake Erie, and when we each moved to Boston, we worked only a couple blocks away from one another.  Yet we didn’t meet until close friends introduced us.  We both share a love of history, and during our first date we went canoeing under the Old North Bridge, near where the Revolutionary War started.  Paul later proposed to Gretchen on that same bridge, and we've been happily married for six years.

Two years ago, we were blessed when a courageous birth mother chose us to parent her child, and she and our son, Tommy, have brought even more laughs, light, and love into our lives than we could have ever imagined.  We have learned something new every day about ourselves as people and as parents, and especially our own expanding capacity to love.  We cannot wait to welcome a new child to our family.

What We Love About Each Other:

Paul says that Gretchen is a loving, warm, and caring person with a big heart, and an infectious laugh.  Gretchen says that Paul is amazingly kind, patient, creative, and incredibly funny.  We love to stay active, hiking, biking, cooking dinner together, playing on the beach, and playing in our yard as a family.  We enjoy celebrating holidays both big  (like Christmas and Easter) and small (like Valentine’s Day – which is also our anniversary!), and spending time together on all the normal days in between, whether on walks to the park or picnics on our back deck.

What We Look Forward to Sharing:

Gretchen plays the piano beautifully, and looks forward to sharing her love of music, baking, and baseball (she’s a huge Yankees fan).  Paul grew up playing many sports and still plays hockey weekly.  He looks forward not only to taking our children to cheer on the home teams at live sports events (especially the Red Sox), but also coaching our children’s teams as they grow.  We both also grew up with strong emphases on education. Paul, who earned his doctorate in Chemistry, is a scientist at a large biotech company.  Gretchen, who is a lawyer currently, holds an administrative leadership position at an Ivy League university. Together we both look forward to sharing with our children our love of learning, and curiosity about people and places across the country and around the world. Most of all, we love to spend our time with our families and friends, like Tommy’s Babcia and Dziadzia (that’s Polish for Grandma and Grandpa) who live nearby, and his uncles, aunts, and cousins.

Our Home and Neighborhood:

We live in a lovely 3 bedroom, two and one-half bath home in a wonderful suburb with an amazing school system.  During the nice weather, our yard and long driveway are bustling with pick-up games of basketball, hockey, and kids riding bikes and selling lemonade.  We love our home, and cannot wait to welcome a new child into our family, our lives, and our hearts.

J.J and Liz

J.J and Liz

About us:

We met at a friend's party and met up again six months later at a baseball game with a large group of friends. Over the first few months we were dating, we both realized that we had something special. We make each other laugh, share the same values and hopes for life, have a lot of respect for each other and love to be together. We dated for a little over a year before getting engaged in New York City's Central Park. We've now been married for over four very happy years!

J.J. is the head writer for an educational travel company. He writes brochures, websites, emails and other marketing materials.

Liz is a product manager at a financial services company. She helps build trading and research features aimed to make investing easier for customers.

What we like to do:

We love to be active and outdoors. Together, we like to ski, bike, hike, play tennis, and golf. We've done a lot of traveling together -- both around the U.S. and abroad (we've been to Argentina, France and Ireland). We're also lucky to have a great group of friends that we spend time with – whether it’s cooking together, going out to restaurants, or doing charity bike rides & runs.

J.J. is a soccer player and mountain biker who loves to be outside. He loves to read and considers socializing with friends and family to be a hobby. Liz is a fan of comedy whether its movies, books, or shows like Saturday Night Live. In summer, she loves to go to the beach, swim, sail, and barbecue.

Qualities we see in each other:

J.J. on Liz: Liz is warm, friendly, and loyal. Her best friends are people she's known since grammar school or college. I know that Liz will give our child all of her love, and all of the things that make me love her: her humor, her kindness, her compassion, her politeness, and her playfulness. She will be an amazing mother.

Liz on J.J.: J.J. has a great sense of humor, he gets along with people from all walks of life, is laid back, smart and curious. He's got an adventurous spirit and a great "the more the merrier" approach to life. Kids naturally gravitate towards him and I love watching him be with kids because he is genuinely interested and having fun. He will be a wonderful father.

Special activities we look forward to doing with our child:

We believe the most important things you can do with a child are laugh, love, and learn. We can’t wait to do these things with our child. We plan to encourage them to try lots of things. We'll be their coach, mentor, and cheering section. We look forward to the little moments like reading books , making snowmen together, helping with homework, trying to answer their questions, watching them grow up as we help them through the ups and downs of life, and hugging them tight.

Extended family:

J.J. is the youngest of 4 children and Liz has one older sister. Together, we have 11 nieces and nephews and the oldest of them all is only 11. Some are right near us, others are farther away but we see them at least a couple of times a year. It's always fun, high energy, and unpredictable in all the right way.

Adoption story:

We believe family is about love, openness, and respect not traditional structure or definitions. We look forward to sharing our child's adoption story from the beginning - to help him or her become a strong and secure person and to honor the birth parents' role in our lives

Our home and neighborhood:

We live in a two bedroom condominium in in a tight-knit city neighborhood full of young families. We have an excellent elementary school, lots of playgrounds, and a beautiful courtyard that we share with our neighbors. We also have a second home in Vermont that we share with friends (who have young children of their own). We go there often to ski, hike, swim, bike, BBQ, see the stars and fireflies, and just relax.

Norm and Richelle

Norm and Richelle

About us:

We met at a financial advisory firm where we both worked.  Richelle was doing an internship and Norm was her supervisor.  We kept our relationship a secret for 6 months before we let the word get out.  While this may otherwise seem somewhat scandalous, we were actually the 7th couple to meet and marry from the office…and there have been two more since us!  We dated for over two years before we were engaged and enjoyed a two year engagement before we tied to knot. Norm is self-employed as an accountant/bookkeeper and Richelle is a CPA; Tax Partner at a national firm.

Our son, Liam, is currently in an in-home daycare and we are considering hiring a nanny once we have a second child.  With that said, we do believe that socialization with other children is important so we will look for opportunities to participate in local play groups.  Norm’s schedule is irregular so he is sometimes home during the day.  In addition, Richelle works from home a day or two a week. We do plan to take as much time off as possible when the baby comes so that we can bond and enjoy our new family member.

Our hobbies:

Norm is an avid reader, enjoys golf and is wonderful at home improvements.  Richelle enjoys decorating our new home, spending time with friends, and likes photography and scrapbooking.  We both love outdoor activities include swimming, sailing, power boating, waterskiing, canoeing, fishing, camp fires, great meals, long talks and most importantly, laughter.  We particularly enjoy being out on our sailboat.

Activities we look forward to doing with our child:

Richelle enjoys bedtime stories and cuddles.  She is the piggy-back ride and tackle football player.  Liam and Richelle enjoy baking especially making cakes for special occasions (i.e. we made a pink heart cake for Valentine’s Day).  Norm enjoys playing with the Liam outside (playing catch, hitting a ball, and running around). We plan on continuing all of this and more with our new child.

Our extended family & holidays:

Together we have all sets of parents, sisters and brothers and their spouses along with 5 nieces and nephews.  Liam’s cousins love to play with him and enjoying teaching him whatever they can, whether it is learning patty-cake, playing soccer or coloring Easter eggs.

Although none of them live locally, we make every effort to spend time with them whenever we can with particular attention to Liam spending time with his grandparents.  We try to take advantage of quality time together as we don’t have the luxury of quantity.

We love the holidays and always spend them with our family, whether at our home or away.  Gatherings are generally intimate, casual and relaxing.  During the holiday season, Norm’s family always has a family get-together which brings us all together.

Our adoption story:

We have been telling Liam about his adoption story since birth.  We speak of his birthparents often and with great appreciation particularly on Mother’s/Father’s Day and his birthday.  Liam has always loved to flip through the Profile Book that we had compiled for his adoption and we also found a few nice story books about adoption that we read often.  Now that he is older, we have begun to engage him in writing the annual letter to his birthparents by asking him what he wants to tell them about.  We have begun a scrapbook of all the letters and pictures that we have sent through the years so that as he grows and begins to have questions about his adoption, we can show him all that we shared through the years.  We intend to do the same for our next child.

Home & neighborhood:

We live in a quintessential New England town which many of our friends have described as a scene right out of a Norman Rockwell painting.  The scene of kids playing hockey on a frozen pond in the glistening, falling snow is a sure bet.  There are no stop lights in town and one can expect to encounter wooded roads, rock walls, ponds, horse stables and deer around every corner.

We also have a lake house in New Hampshire which has been in Norm’s family for over 65 years.  Our weekends at the lake are often filled with visits from family and friends as we enjoy sharing our “home away from home” with those close to us.

Adoption story:

We feel that an honest and open adoption is the best plan for our child.  We will always remind them of the ultimate sacrifice that you made.  Our baby will be welcomed and loved with open arms by our entire family and large community of friends.

Our home and neighborhood:

We live in a small town in a beautiful cape style house set back on a private wooded lot.  The back yard is full of beautiful flower gardens as well as potted vegetables and has lots of room to run and explore.  Our neighborhood is very residential including several families with young children.   There is a large pond across the street that is open to fishing, canoeing and kayaking, it is truly beautiful scenery.

Erik and Sunita

Erik and Sunita

About us:

We were introduced through a mutual friend at a Spanish tapas restaurant where we still love to go for good food and memories.  We clicked on our first date, a shopping excursion that extended into dinner and a movie.  After that first date, we began spending more and more time with each other – cooking, playing tennis and going running.  We quickly realized just how much we had in common, how compatible we are and how much we loved being around each other.  We make each other laugh and support each other every day.  We spent several years together before we married and have been married for 8 years.  We look forward to spending the rest of our lives together.

Sunita is a medical research scientist working on treatments for rare diseases.

Erik is a chemical biologist researching therapies for autoimmune diseases.

Qualities we see in each other:

Sunita says that Erik is that type of person that you just want to be around.  He loves to laugh and make people laugh.  He has such a great positive outlook on life.  He is engaging, thoughtful, patient and kind and also motivated and intelligent.

Erik says that Sunita is the sweetest, most compassionate person I know.  She is both smart and beautiful. She has a great sense of humor and loves to be creative.  She is also adventurous and athletic (she regularly beats me in golf and tennis).

Our hobbies:

Sunita enjoys cooking and baking, playing sports (tennis, golf, running), traveling, home projects and crafts.

Erik enjoys backpacking, international travel, sports (basketball, running, tennis) and reading.

Special activities we look forward to doing with our child:

We look forward to frequent walks to parks, playing catch in our yard, long sun filled days at the beach, rooting at baseball and basketball games in Boston, gathering with family at the family cabin in Montana and traveling to places far and wide. We also look forward to everyday activities like snuggling up to read bedtime stories, sharing dinners together, helping with homework and school projects, and experiencing with our child the joy of learning to ride a bike.

Extended family and holidays:

Sunita’s family is in Pennsylvania and Erik’s is in Oregon.  We both have one older brother and two nephews, so four cousins (ages 13, 11, 9 & 7) will be thrilled to meet our child, as will the grandparents – Sunita’s mom and Erik’s parents.

We alternate traveling for the holidays to one of our families’ homes and plan it so the entire family can be there.  Gatherings are fun and festive with a lot of cooking, playing games, watching movies and fun science experiments.

Our adoption story:

We will be open and honest with our child when discussing with her/him about adoption.  We will be careful in providing age-appropriate information to help our child understand their background and gain a sense of self.

Our home and neighborhood:

We just purchased a three level, single-family home  that has a beautiful deck and backyard for playing.  The neighborhood is quiet and family-oriented with parks and playgrounds and a pond close by.  The school district is excellent and schools are within walking distance.

Eric and Kristel

Eric and Kristel

About us:

When Eric was stationed in the military he was introduced to Kristel by a mutual close friend.  We found an instant connection like we were meant to be best friends forever.  After dating for just a short while, we were certain we had found true love and we got married!

Eric and Kristel are very sentimental and continue to always cherish special events like our first cake, first kiss, first trip, first everything with one another.   We have been married for over fifteen years and our love and marriage is very strong. As we celebrate we are also hoping to bring a child into our wonderful family to share in all celebrations.

Eric is a Sales Account Executive and Kristel is Director of Marketing and Compliance.

Eric has the most flexibility in his job, so he expects to stay home full-time for at least the first six months with the baby.  We are making plans to alternate responsibilities beyond that time period but we feel fortunate that one of us is able to stay home with the baby.

Qualities we see in each other:

Eric (written by Kristel):

Eric is someone I can count on when days are rough and whenever I need a quick chuckle.  He has a playful soul and always has a very positive outlook on things. These attributes are what I love most about him, especially his sense of humor. He knows how to make people feel special and gives them the individual attention they deserve. He has a passion for life and lives it to the fullest each day.

Kristel (written by Eric):

There is not a woman in the world more beautiful and fabulous than my wife and best friend.  My love affair with her goes beyond her physical and extends to her tender soul.  I’m always mesmerized by her unconditional love for family, people and all living things.  She expresses her adoring love for me and it’s what makes my days complete.  She naturally tends to my happiness and consults with me with anything she may feel may be in conflict with our individual ideals.  She is a tremendous compromiser, and sometimes to her detriment puts everyone before herself.

Our hobbies:

Eric has a passion for golf and being outdoors.  During the winter time, he loves fresh fallen snow and will seek a nearby summit to carve fresh powder on the mountain side. Kristel loves to research and read numerous topics of interest.  When her nose isn’t buried in an article, it’s often tending plants and smelling flowers in our beautiful organic garden.  Kristel loves to follow the sun and would always prefer to be on the beach on any given day.

Activities we look forward to doing with our child:

We look forward to capturing every precious moment with our child.  From its first laughter, first crawl, first words and everything else that comes with them.  We love being involved in arts and crafts, taking the kids to museums and zoos, and running outside playing tag or hide and seek until their energy is spent.  This is true with our nieces and nephews, and we look forward to doing the same with our child.

Our extended family and holiday gatherings:

We have three energetic nephews and three precious nieces, all ranging in ages between two to ten years old.  They are all social butterflies and love to meet new friends.  The cousins show a tremendous bond with one another and there is no doubt they will do the same with their new cousin. Our family is very close.

Since moving to North East, we haven’t missed a year where Kristel’s brother and sister will get the family together during Christmas.  We spend a total of two weeks traveling around New York, visiting and spoiling the little ones with gifts.  Specifically on Christmas Eve, we help the kids prepare Santa’s plate of cookies, personal notes, and a glass of milk.  We usually stay up until midnight ensuring every child is asleep and we help wrap and stuff gifts around the beautiful twinkling tree.  Christmas morning is a tremendous event as we experience the jubilant joy and appreciation of every child.

Our home and neighborhood:

We own a lovely comfortable house in the suburbs and it sits on about a half-acre lot surrounded by old oak trees and pine, among cozy single family homes on a quiet cul-de-sac street.  The back of our house has a large deck and screened porch overlooking a fenced-in backyard area that has plenty of room for kids to play with toys, and where we enjoy relaxing afternoons in our fenced-in pool and organic garden. We live within walking distance to two Elementary Schools and the Middle School. Living near a city allows us to take advantage of what that has to offer, but plant our roots in the calm and family-oriented communities just outside the city limits.

We alternate between hosting Praveen’s children and spending time with Valerie’s family (siblings or mother) for Thanksgiving and Christmas. These gatherings include a lot of cooking together, taking pictures, playing games and relaxing. We enjoy the holidays and are excited to incorporate the baby into these holiday gatherings.

Our adoption story:

We plan to be open and honest with our child about his/her adoption. We will remind him/her about the sacrifice made by you and teach him/her about you. We will listen to their questions and be sincere in providing the answers to help them grow into successful individuals.

Our home and neighborhood:

We live in a beautiful intimate four bedroom colonial house with a spacious backyard on a private street. Our home is a few minutes away from several playgrounds and a family oriented bike path that we really like. The schools are excellent academically and for sports and a few minutes from our home.

About us:

We met through mutual friends who introduced us at a dinner party. Our first date, which began as a simple dinner, turned into about 12 hours of conversation — we both realized that we had found something pretty special and unlike any relationship we’d previously experienced. Natalie was attracted to the feeling that being with Tad almost immediately felt like being at home. Tad was attracted to Natalie, as she was down to earth, funny, intelligent, and he found her very beautiful. We continue to both share interests in music, art, film, and travel.

Tad is a Web Production and Social Media Specialist and he loves his work.  He enjoys working with people throughout the company by helping different departments keep their information maintained and updated. He finds it rewarding sharing his talents for the purpose of helping others and the world

Natalie is a middle school history teacher. Natalie loves her work—she finds working with students incredibly fulfilling. She feels that teaching is a demanding profession but brings many rewards: team work with other inspiring and hard-working educators; witnessing amazing growth in students; getting the opportunity to be creative; and finding herself laughing every single day.

Qualities we see in each other:

Tad says about Natalie:What I love about Natalie is she has a deep appreciation for people and children. She expresses motherhood in many ways and I know she’ll be a loving mom. I also love her smile, her sense of humor, and her generosity.

Natalie says about Tad:  Tad is incredibly patient, loving, and gentle. I greatly admire his courage in standing up for others and speaking his mind. I love his creativity, energy, and joy.  I know he will be a caring, consistent, and truly wonderful dad.

Our hobbies:

Tad loves to cook and grill, go running, be outdoors, go to the beach, visit art museums, watch films, go to baseball games, and watch a good mystery on TV. He  also enjoys revisiting his music collection when he can, or exploring his paints and putting them on canvas.

Natalie enjoys spending time with her friends' kids— babysitting, baking, story time, whatever they want to do! She also likes indulging her  geeky history teacher side by visiting museums and historic sites, and strumming out a few tunes on the guitar.

Holiday gatherings:

Our holiday gatherings are fun—we especially love celebrating Christmas with our families. Tad’s family is all over the US and Natalie’s family is in England — no matter what, when we gather within the different arms of the family there is a lot of chatter, much laughter, and many kids running around, and plenty of pets join in the fun, too.

Our home and neighborhood:

We live in a duplex in a beautiful suburban neighborhood.   Our home has three bedrooms. The first floor is light and spacious with an open floor plan. Our furnishings are simple and modern, but with plenty of character. The bedrooms provide plenty of space and privacy. We have a pretty yard and our community is diverse and family-oriented.  There are several parks nearby along with a beautiful river walk.
