Cousin love!! Big cheeses! Our cousins are in NY and we visit often to create lasting memories!

My neighborhood is a good place to raise a family because…

We have a village. Our neighborhood is full of kids, friends, and fun. We all look out for each other and help each other out.

Dan

Our home is nestled in the perfect village, and I am so grateful for those people!

Happy place! Taken during our annual Disney trip, when there isn't a pandemic!

What is the best word to describe your family?

Happy. This doesn't mean we're always happy, and things are perfect, but through everything, we are happy together and we know we have each other.

Katy

Our two Schnauzers, Mira and Sadie.

If you could choose one type of food to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Bread-- think of all the things you can make with bread!! Cake, pastry, pizza, bagels... now I'm hungry.

Katy

My philosophy on parenting is...

Always come from a place of love. Be a guide and teach a child how to love themselves for everything that they are.

Katy

Our neighbors are our best friends! Kids and parents!! Just a little snapshot of our Halloween crew!

Who doesn’t love laying in the snow with cousins!?! ❄️☃️❄️

This sums up how we all feel about Christmas!

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the night sky?

What a tiny speck we are in the universe. How cool would it be to be able to explore it?

Dan

Three years from now, I hope our birth mom is…..

Happy. I hope she feels confident and secure in her choice for us to be her child's parents.

Katy

Favorite season and why?

Summer; I grew up in Upstate, NY, where winter lasts ten months of the year (or at least it feels like it did). I hate being cold.

Dan

When you argue, what’s it about?

The mess around the house. That and who is going to make the coffee.

Katy

If I could change one thing about the World, it would be...

the amount of acceptance that is in the world. There is not enough of it in the world. If I had my way, we would live in a world that has more openness in it's heart, and be more accepting of others.

Katy

My neighborhood is a good place to raise a family because…

It is the definition of a village. We lean on each other and support each other. We take care of one another. It is filled with children, laughter, and families.

Katy

If you had to live on an RV or sailboat for the rest of your life, which would it be?

This is really hard. I grew up around boats, and love them! But I feel like if I had to choose, I’d pick an RV. Although, if you ask me on a different day, I may have changed my mind...

Katy

If I could have dinner with anyone -- dead or alive -- I would pick...

my grandfather- he passed away eight years ago, and I always wish I had just a little more time. His death reminded me that it is so important to never ever leave things unsaid. Always say I love you.

Katy

What scares you?

Spiders! I am not about spiders. I will collect and gather cicadas all summer with the kids, but spiders, NOPE! No thank you!

Katy

We are the best choice because…

We love BIG! We aren't perfect, and we don't promise to be, but everything we do is filled with really big love. We celebrate each other and we celebrate our accomplishments and our grief.

Katy

My favorite place in the World is...

My favorite place to visit is hands down Walt Disney World. But my favorite place to be, is anywhere with Dan and the kids. They are my world, and wherever they are is where I want to be.

Katy

Do you have kids? How would they feel about a sibling?

Yes! We have two kids, a son, Isaiah, through adoption, and a biological daughter, Amelia, and they are both so excited for a sibling!!

Katy

Complete the sentence, “I can’t live without……”

My family. And........ maybe coffee. I really love coffee. I got to sleep at night, excited for that first cup of coffee in the morning. Ha!

Katy

Favorite season and why?

Fall or winter. I love the cooler weather, and fire pits! When it's crisp and cool, I love to be outside. Winter just feels more romantic than warmer months.

Katy

Dogs or cats?

Both! We have two dogs, Mira and Sadie, but the cat is bigger than Mira. She is practically the worlds smallest Schnauzer.

Katy

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the night sky?

Well, usually it's "wow", but that doesn't really explain how I feel lol. I think I just truly realize how small I am in the scheme of things.

Katy

My best friend would describe me as......

Loyal and dependable, the one you go to when you're feeling down or have a problem, with a lot of sarcasm.

Katy

Do you consider yourself religious or spiritual?

I am definitely more spiritual than I am religious.

Katy
