Our Home & Promise to You
We live in the bayou region in Louisiana. We are surrounded by amazing family and friends who offer great support and encouragement to us!
A bayou runs the length of our parish which connects to a lake behind our home, where Cory and I like to Kayak. Within a mile of us there are forests, open fields, sugar cane fields, swamps, and marshes. We have a family of little bunnies that have taken up residence in our yard, much to our joy and Louis's dismay. During Mardi Gras, Cory's entire family gathers at his grandmother's house to watch parades.
When Louis is not lounging around the house and getting belly rubs, he enjoys chasing squirrels and rabbits in our back yard, though he will never catch one. Louis is a 10 pound mix of Yorkie and something with long legs. He was recently adopted from a rescue who rescued him from a kill shelter. Louis loves his 3 and 1 year old human cousins, and is a gentleman around children. He brings such love and joy into our lives, and we feel so blessed to have his furry self in our lives.
FUN FACT: He can sit and come on command, when treats are involved, and is learning how to shake with his paw. He's kind of the best dog ever. He's also very food motivated, but then again, aren't we all?
Now that we have shared many things about us, we hope to have the amazing opportunity for us to get to know you as well. We want to learn about your life, and hear your hopes and dreams and those for your child. We want to learn about your family, culture, and the things that you hold close to your heart. We would like to create a lasting relationship built on openness and trust.
Before we go though, we do wish to make a few promises we have every intention of keeping! For your child, we wish to always be patient, kind and understanding. We promise to open up the world when everything seems small. We promise to be the strong and steady support to keep them grounded when life becomes overwhelming. We will always value education, provide opportunities for travel, and will keep a home filled with laughter.
We promise to provide structure and the intellectual freedom to think big, creative, and beautiful ideas. We promise to love without conditions and to speak of you in the most honoring and caring of ways, because after all, you are family! Last but not least, no one is perfect, but we promise to do our best in everything we do as parents!
