How We Met: We met online in 2014, and over coffee discovered our shared love of biking, traveling, and Snoopy collectibles. We enjoyed biking together on local trails and traveling together. One of our favorite areas to visit is a state park known for its waterfalls and bike trail. We took one of our first trips together there as a couple and went camping in a yurt. After several years of dating, we got married in the fall of 2016.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other: Jim is extremely considerate and caring. He goes beyond what most people would for their friends and family. He is very committed to friends and family when it comes to attending events and games. He comes from a very large close-knit family. Angie is very thoughtful and caring. She works hard and is very patient. She goes out of her way to help others. She is also always very supportive of me.
Our Hobbies and Interests: We are an on-the-go couple and are always on the lookout for new experiences, whether it’s exploring a local festival, discovering new hobbies such as railbiking, or biking local trails, we love a good adventure. Traveling is one of our favorite things to do. We have traveled all over the U.S. and Canada. We also go on a yearly beach trip to the East Coast with family. We both collect Disney pins and Snoopy collectibles, while Jim also collects pins, patches, and park stamps while traveling.
Why We Want to Adopt: We have not been able to have a child naturally since we began trying when we got married. We are eager to share our lives and our passions for travel and learning with a child. We have family members that have adopted, and we have learned from their experiences. Our parents and extended families will provide a strong support system for any child we adopt, as they have been for us throughout our relationship.
