Charles grew up in a small, rural farming community. Growing up, he worked for a nearby farmer and that work led him to the career he has today. Charles enjoys the rural lifestyle and being able to hunt dove, pheasant, quail and waterfowl in the fall. He gives the birds he hunts to his friends because that's what they eat for the winter, and he's happy to help in that way.
Charles also loves to fish. There are several nice creeks nearby and he enjoys being out in nature, waiting to get a bite. Charles also goes up to the lake with his brother and enjoys spending time with him, fishing and catching up.
Around the house, Charlies is "Mr. Fix it." He moves fences, cuts the grass and grills, quite a bit. He shovels the snow to the grill, so he can use it during the winter. He also enjoys smoking meats, mostly pork and beef. Charles looks forward to sharing his love for the outdoors with a child.
We live in a nice tri-level home, in a very quiet neighborhood on the edge of our town. We have a nice family room and toy room for the children on the first level, and upstairs we already have a bedroom made up for another child. We spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Janes bakes cakes, bread and cinnamon rolls, and Charlie does most of the dinner meals, especially in the winter when he gets off early from work. We have a nice deck in the back yard. We enjoy eating dinner out back, where Becca blows her bubbles and Charlie grills.
Becca was due on April 14th. On April 1st at 5:00 AM we got the call to get to Kansas City, Becca’s birth mom was in labor. The night before we had been shopping for the car seat and other supplies never expecting to need them the next day!
Becca has an independent streak! She likes swimming and gymnastics. She also likes to help mommy around the house, folding laundry or doing dishes. She loves it when we read her books and is very into the Bernstein Bears collection. Right now, she also likes the books, New Baby, and The Messy Room. Becca loves listening to music and singing and this spring she sang Jesus Loves Me to our church congregation.
We have a semi-open adoption with Becca's birthmother. We send updates and know that it is so important to keep up with that especially around the holidays. Becca is so excited to be a big sister, and we are equally excited to welcome a new child into our home and a new birthmother into our lives.
Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile, and thank you for bringing this beautiful baby into the world. We cannot wait to be parents to another child. We dream of it every day, and look forward to sharing our love.
We promise to give your baby everything our family has to offer---love, acceptance and nurturing, a good education and so much more. We are open to having any sort of relationship that suits your comfort level. Regardless of the level of openness that you prefer, we will always remind the child of the amazing sacrifice that their mother made for them so that they could live the best life possible.
We wish you all the love and luck as you sort out what is right for you and your baby.
