Horseback Riding in AZ

My favorite place in the World is...

anywhere that I can be on a horse. Riding is my nirvana and the place I feel most at peace and happy.

If I could choose one type of food to eat for the rest of my life, it would be:

Authentic Italian but I also love Middle Eastern and trying food from different cultures. I have a very large spice collection so we can cook a variety of different dishes!

-Tom

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

Tolerance. I think we all need to be more accepting of each other and celebrate our differences.

-Tom

We are the best choice because…

We are very grounded and supportive of each other. Our love for each other is constant even when we need set boundaries or deal with difficult situations.

Favorite season and why?

I like all of the seasons for different reasons. Each season brings new activities and different traditions. It’s fun to celebrate the moment you are in.

-Kym

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

It’s quiet and family friendly. We are in a small gated neighborhood, only 20 houses. You have 7 cousins within 2 to 15 minutes that you will grow up with!

-Kym

Dogs or cats?

Dogs. Big Dogs. Also cats, parrots, and horses. We have Bernese Mountain dogs and I can’t imagine life without a Berner.

-Kym

My favorite place in the World is...

To be home with my family. My second favorite place would be to travel somewhere new in the world where I can learn about their culture and traditions.

-Tom

Dogs or cats?

Dogs. I love big goofy cuddly dogs.

-Tom

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

Happy, safe and absolutely confident in her decision to share her child with our family.

-Tom

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

Fulfilling her dreams. My wish for her is to be happy, fulfilled, and able to chase after the things in life she dreams of. If she wants, I also hope she is a part of our child's life.

-Kym

Favorite season and why?

Fall. I love the cool nights, sunny days, and beginning of the holiday season with all of our family traditions.

-Tom

My philosophy on parenting is...

that we must be open to both teaching our children and learning from them. That love, education, experiences, and healthy boundaries are essential building blocks.

-Tom

We are the best choice because…

We are balanced. I’m practical, analytical, logical. Tom is social, outgoing, laid back. We work well together because we balance each other and bring that balance and acceptance to our family.

-Kym

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

My family. They are my inspiration and quide for life. We are always learning from each other.

-Tom

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

My grandmother. She was the matriarch of our family and always giving advice. I could use her guidance now!

-Tom

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

A sailboat. I love the water. The freedom, the motion, the sea life.

-Kym

If I could choose one type of food to eat for the rest of my life, it would be:

That's tough. We love Lebanese food, middle eastern, Italian, Mexican. We really enjoy eating foods from around the world, I don't think I could choose just one!

-Kym

Do I have kids? How do they feel about a sibling?

We have a 6 year old son, Joe. He tells us every night he is going to dream of having a baby sister or brother. He is very excited to add a sibling to the family and can't wait to meet him/her.

-Kym

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

Endless possibilities. I am a dreamer at heart.

Yes. Joe has been asking for a sibling and would love to be a big brother.
