We met each other at a running club and went on our first date to a nearby aquarium. We quickly realized that we enjoyed each other’s company and had similar interests. Soon, we were married! We both come from families of six and didn’t have much money growing up, but we had happy childhoods and made the most of our education. We also both love outdoor activities like sailing, swimming, biking, and hiking.
Our jobs in science and law are challenging and rewarding, but we set up our work schedules so that we are able to care for Alisha ourselves as she grows. Caring for her as an infant, and now as a toddler has not only been a lot of fun, but it has also strengthened the bonds and love in our family. We will provide the same care when a new baby arrives.
