Joe: He owns a small trucking/brokerage company. Joe comes from a larger family of three brothers and one sister. They are all within two years of each other and are extremely close.
Adoption Is Another Word For Love
Most of his siblings have children, which is great to watch them grow and Jackson has cousins his age to play with at family gatherings.
Joe enjoys trap shooting, exercising and watching movies with Tara after Jackson goes to bed. As you will read in Tara's insert, you will find that Joe spends quite a bit of time working on the house doing renovation projects. Thanks, HGTV.
At the end of the day Joe enjoys staying busy by teaching and spending time with Jackson. During the warmer months Joe and Jackson like to go outside and mow grass together or even sometimes Joe will ride around on the tractor and Jackson on his power wheels and chase each other. They just enjoy being together and living life.
Tara: She is a stay at home mom. Her day usually consists of playing trucks, puzzles, and watching cartoons. She considers being a stay at home mom quite the job, but a bigger blessing. Tara loves spending time with family. If she's not with Joe and Jackson at home, you can usually find her with her mother and sister or spending time with her in-laws and their families.
Tara loves to watch HGTV and give her husband projects to do which he loves (secretly). She also enjoys playing games with Jackson, going to markets and craft shows, or baking. She's a huge fan of the show Fixer Upper. Tara and Joe actually just put some shiplap up in their house which looks awesome. During the warmer months She loves to be outside with Jackson either playing on the swing set or gardening.
Before becoming a mother, Tara used to work in the medical field as a Phlebotomist and Administrative Assistant for a Home Care agency. She enjoyed both of these jobs very much and learned a lot. Being a stay at home mom and raising her child at home is something she cherishes. Kids are only young once and sooner rather than later they will not want mom around, so she is taking advantage of this time.
Jackson: He is 4 years old and a total boy. Jackson was born 8 weeks early, weighing only 4lbs 3oz. He spent his first 4 weeks in the NICU at the local hospital. Jackson is a fighter. He LOVES babies and always wanting to help feed them, give them their pacifier, or just give them a kiss. He is beyond excited to become a BIG brother. He is really into tractors, semi trucks, swimming class and jumping off the furniture. He has the sweetest smile and is Mr. Independent.
