We are both educators working from home. We live part of our time on the western part of the state but still go back to spend time close to the coast of NC to close to family. The picture above is of Caleb, our son, he is eight years old. We were fortunate enough to adopt him from China six years ago. God has blessed us in many ways- in finding one another and in having such a loving family.
