About me

Industry Education
Location High Ridge, Missouri, United States
Introduction We are an old married couple of five years-- but we still feel like newlyweds. I am a high school Spanish teacher-- a language nerd with a passion for art, history, and different cultures as well as a runner on the side. My strong points are great attention to detail, persistence, empathy, and a generally cheerful nature. Mike is a high school biology teacher-- a critical thinker, a tinkerer, a rock climber, and an outdoor enthusiast. His strong points are his efficiency, his quick wit, and ability to resolve problems without getting too flustered. Together,we are a dynamic duo who is looking to be «más 1»... meaning plus 1 in Spanish. Our family building adventure is leading us to Honduras, where we are looking to adopt a child (of either gender) younger than 2. As I start this blog, we are already making good progress with the initial 2 applications submitted and our homestudy approved. Yet, much of the hard work lies ahead and we are still learning what to expect. This does not worry us too much....Mike and I have had many experiences abroad and our trips together always yield unexpected surprises. Surely, this will be our greatest journey!
Interests Running, reading, hiking, seeing the world, learning new things, art, language in general, cooking, and of course-- spending time with family and friends!
