The first thing you should know is that we greatly admire you.
We are Warren & Margaret, and from the start of our marriage, we knew we wanted to be parents. For us, adoption was always part of the plan. Warren's mother was adopted and while dating we talked of having one child and adopting a child to complete our family.
For us, adoption was always part of the plan.
A few years into our marriage we learned that we would not be able to conceive children. We get to experience joy in parental-like roles with the children of family, friends and neighbors, but we want more. The desire of having our own family grows every day.
We met through mutual friends and dated long distance for a couple of years. Our love of traveling together began with concerts, football games, river tubing trips.
We have now been married ten years. We still enjoy traveling. It doesn't matter to us whether it's a quick weekend trip out of town or a planned vacation to another country. We are excited to share our love of traveling as a family- Hawaii, Big Bend National Park, Davis Mountains, South Africa, SEC & Big 12 Bowl Games, NYC, San Diego. It could involve helping with grape harvest, hiking in a park or snorkeling at a beach. We enjoy being outside and experiencing anything that has to do with agriculture or animals and have a special appreciation for zoos. Having a child accompany us on our adventures will enrich our own experiences even more! Seeing a child take in all of the cultural sights and sounds for the first time will undoubtedly be a rewarding experience for us as parents.
While we spend a lot of time with family and traveling, we also revel in our time at home. We love to spend time working in our garden on the weekends and training our dogs. We look forward to having a little one getting his or her hands dirty - getting excited about rolly polly bugs, worms and nature! We also enjoy our lazy weekends to playing games, working on puzzles or cuddling up for a movie marathon.
