|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
Aaron really enjoys designing, building, and improving things, especially if it involves metalworking!
Sarah is a car seat tech and certified Labor Doula and is passionate about anything body/birth/health or child-development related. She also enjoys doing photography and crafts and snuggling our kids.
We both enjoy being outdoors, trying new foods, movies, and fishing.
We have an authentic relationship with Jesus!
|Our Time at Work|
Our children get some very diverse experiences from coming to work with us at our family’s metal manufacturing company, where they often get to play a part in our projects in the forklift, tools, furniture, transportation, and aerospace industries.
Also, we LOVE the people we work with. Our team members stop by every morning to say hello to our kids and ask them questions about their day, animals, etc. They teach them how to make paper airplanes, look at 3-D drawings, count money, and hold a meeting. Ruth recently held a "Tea & Cartwheels" event in the breakroom that we all got a good laugh out of. They sometimes bring their children to come play during lunch as well. There are quite a few people that Ruth and Hosea love sharing their books and toys with (and sneaking snacks from). We also love that our kids get to see the beauty of diversity on a daily basis; we have people from 10 nationalities speaking 9 different languages on our team. Our team really treats them with great love and respect, and we know they will gladly do the same for another little one.
|We live in the state of...|
The big and beautiful Texas!
|Health, Parenting, & Lifestyle|
We really try to make sure we put our focus where it matters most so that we can relax and not sweat the small stuff. Our main goal is that our children will grow up knowing how to love and be loved. We want them to learn, grow, and form relationships knowing that every need they have will be met. We feel that leading lives with healthy habits and safe environments will allow them the freedom to learn that, and other life values. That is why:
-We've taken on many aspects of 'Attachment Parenting' such as babywearing/carrying, responding to our children's needs no matter the time of day or night, and maintaining a positive outlook for our children and their future. It is our hope that through these things, they will know that they are seen, valued, and will be taken care of. We want them to be able to explore and learn and form relationships knowing that every need they have will be met.
-We generally try to eat foods that are organically grown and minimally processed. We also regularly seek guidance from a nutritionist / naturopathic doctor for recommendations on how to improve our health.
-We use natural personal care and cleaning products as much as possible.
-We follow safe car seat practices. One of us being a car seat technician, we realize the significance and importance of keeping a child as safe as possible in and around vehicles.
Aaron's father grew up in Brazil and moved to the US as an adolescent, so we have much Brazilian culture, traditions, and language within our family. We have family in Montana, New Mexico, Brazil, Kentucky, and of course - Texas. We try to get together with our long-distance family as well; usually once or twice a year.
We feel we have the best children in the world. They are kind, confident, smart, and respect both themselves & others. They get along well with both adults and other children. We regularly receive compliments from others about their behavior and development.
|We Prefer a Child Who Is...
|Age of Child|
|Ethnicity of Child||Any; there is beauty amongst diversity!|
|Future Contact with Birth Family|
As much as desired/possible; we would consider a birth family as an extension of our family
Thank you so much for spending time to get to know more about us. We greatly look forward to loving and guiding your child as they grow and fulfill all the beautiful plans Christ has for them. We hope to share with them our love for God and His creation. Whether it be through pictures, phone calls, or visits - we want to share with you all the beauty of their life that we can as they grow and learn. We are so excited to meet you!
With much love,
Aaron & Sarah
