Erica is a kind and compassionate wife and friend. Erica grew up in Texas and as a child, she enjoyed competitive shooting, dancing, and volleyball. Later in life this passion for sports transferred from playing to coaching. A true passion of hers is guiding and mentoring young women who desire to play competitive volleyball. It is easy to see the joy and love in her heart for children. We enjoy spending time with each other by traveling to see new places, camping, competitive shooting, and watching movies. Erica also enjoys spending her free time reading. Often, she enjoys lounging outside on our back deck with her nose in a book during cool summer evenings. Erica is a loving and compassionate woman, who would do anything she could to help someone in need. Throughout my lifetime I have been faced with the struggle of the loss of my mother and father. Erica has been by my side every step of the way. She has weathered the storms, the highs and the lows, right along with me, and for that I am eternally grateful. Without her I would not be the man I am today. It is without a doubt in my mind that Erica will be an amazing, kind, and loving mother. Her love for this child will only grow each and every day.
