About Kaleb (from Jill)
Kaleb is the most amazing man I've ever met. I know it sounds corny, but honestly, before I met Kaleb I did not believe in soul mates. The moment you think you have him figured out, you find out something new about him. He is insanely intelligent with an equally wide variety of interests, life experiences, and talents. When you first meet him, you'd figure out pretty quickly that he's serious, intelligent, freakishly observant, hard-working, and born, raised, and proud to be Texan. If you got to know him a little more, you'd discover he's funny, good at practically everything, creative, protective, sarcastic, loyal, not a morning person, and that his family - human and canine - means everything to him. And then if you really got to know him, you'd see that he's sensitive, romantic, goofy, secretly loves my cat, and would only leave me if he had a chance with Christina Aguilera lol. I learn something new from him every day and can't imagine taking this adoption journey with anyone else.
About Jill (from Kaleb)
Jill is my soul mate. I know she said the same thing, but it's true. When we met, we immediately had a connection I've never had with anyone else. As I got to know her, I discovered her love for her pets and I love how she cares for them as true members of the family. Our first official date was a weekend at an ATV park - where she would only go if she could bring her dogs. Jill's intelligence is only out done by her kindness and heart. She is one of the most caring people I know and has a way of understanding me and putting up with my shenanigans that never ceases to amaze me. She loves to dance and I love dancing with her anywhere and everywhere. She also loves to travel. Just like me, she's not a morning person, but does a better job dealing with it than I do. Jill keeps me organized and is our "house manager". Everyone who meets her loves her and she has a great relationship with my family. Jill brings happiness to my life every day. I knew right from the start she would be the one I married and couldn't live without.
Grayson is a beautiful and highly intelligent sixth grader who is a total tom-boy and her father's mini-me. She is an extremely talented artist who loves to draw and paint, and a very skilled goalie on her competitive soccer team. She loves to play video games and board games, play outside, go swimming, go 4-wheeling, camping, and hunting, build fires and make s'mores in our fire pit, play with our dogs, go to Broadway shows, and travel and visit different museums. She is confident that she is her baby cousin Kai's favorite person and that Tank loves her more than he loves Kaleb (they're both sorely mistaken - he definitely loves Jill the most ha ha ha). Grayson is obsessed with super soft blankets and stuffed animals. Her favorite stuffed animal, Rhino, accompanies her where ever she is staying, as she lives part time with us and part time with her mother. Shy at first, she is very talkative once she gets to know you. She prefers math and science to English and reading at school.

About Our Home
Kaleb and Grayson are born and raised Texans and Jill moved to Texas from Iowa about 9 years ago. We’ve lived in our house for a little over a year and we absolutely love being in a neighborhood that’s a little bit out in the country – and our dogs definitely love the extra room to run! We also have a neighborhood park at the end of our street which has a playground and a dog park, and a neighborhood lake. We have large indoor and outdoor kitchens which we both enjoy cooking in and we frequently have large groups of friends over for meals. We’ve already started putting together the nursery and can’t wait to bring baby home!
