We met at a campus ministry at Purdue University in 2006. We moved to the Indianapolis area and were married in 2010. We bought our house in 2014. Sara has been working on making the garden beautiful and productive, Dan has been filling the house with hand-made pieces from his woodworking- shop (garage). Dan does most of the cooking, Sara acts as both the sous chef and pastry chef. We spend a lot of time together in the kitchen making delicious, nutritious meals. One thing is certain, no child in our care will ever go hungry.
We have a wonderful church community with which we are involved. Dan has cousins that live in the area and both of our families come to Indianapolis to visit often. We have friends and other people at our church who have also adopted and are really supportive of our decision and excited for us as we take the next step to growing our family.
We also have 2 dogs and 2 cats. Our 8-year-old dachshund, Stormy, is the oldest pet and is a friendly and loving cuddle monster. Dante is a 6-year-old mix who likes to wear t-shirts and sweaters and alerts the household of any and all possible intruders (even the ones we can’t see). The cats, Odin and Freya, are 2-3 years old. Odin is a large one-eyed beast who only allows affection on his own terms. Freya is a small purr-machine who is often found peaking out the windows of the house at passersby. We have a monthly scheduled Friday lunch date to spend time together as a couple. We both like to read and ride bikes; there is an ice-cream shop in between our house and our local library which is accessible by trails and is a perfect summer family activity.
