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

music. I love listening to our favorite records and exploring new bands.

-James

Favorite season and why?

The Fall weather in Arizona is so nice, especially after the hot Summers! I really love the month of October when football, baseball and basketball overlap!

-James

time in nature! I love being outdoors- a neighborhood walk at sunrise, gardening, camping in the woods, hiking in the mountains- experiencing the beauty of nature fills me up.

-Kerri

We are the best choice because…

We will raise children to know they are worthy of their biggest dreams and they are here to share their gifts with the world. We will create a safe, supportive, loving home and community for them.

This is at the end of our wedding night, the best party with our closest friends and family.

We are the best choice because…

We are committed to focus our family time on having fun, being creative, listening to music, going on adventures, communicating honestly, and truly experiencing the joys of life.

-James

My philosophy on parenting is...

to love children unconditionally for who they are and nurture their creativity.

-James

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

connected to us in a way that feels supportive. We don't know what it's like to be in your shoes, but we see you, and we honor you for making a decision that is right for you. You are so loved.

-Kerri

What is the best word to describe our family?

Caring. I am an only child and learned that family is all about support and loving generously. We get to see my parents often, because they live near us.

-James

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

How vast and incredible the Universe is!

-Kerri

What is the best word to describe our family?

Unconditional love (I know, that's two words!). But, truly, this is what we value the most. I learned from my parents how love and support, can heal. This is the foundation of our family.💛

The most special thing I own is...

a vintage guitar that was a wedding gift from Kerri

Dogs or cats?

Both! We love animals. We got two kittens this year, and their playful hearts bring us so much joy! We plan on adding a dog to our crew when the time is right.

-Kerri

I hope our birth mother is...

listening to the voice in your heart, trusting your own inner wisdom, loving yourself. We don't know what it's like to make a choice like this, but we do know what it's like to face a big challenge.
