|More About Our Family
|We love to travel|
Gus is from Brazil and Catie is from Tennessee but spent five years living in Australia before college, so our love for travel and cultures is a huge part of our lives. We have been blessed to have an opportunity to see so much of the world together since getting married, and are excited to show our child the world! Catie has been to 52 countries (so far!) and Gus isn't far behind.
We both grew up believers and are actively involved in our church. We lead a newlywed small group and love spending time with young couples as they grow in their faith and their marriage. Our greatest hope is that we can be an inspiration and an encouragement to those earlier in their own journey and that we are able to represent the heart of God to them along the way. We plan to raise our child in the church and surrounded by the community.
|We love sports|
Gus grew up playing soccer and talks about some of his earliest memories involve watching exciting soccer matches with his family. Catie grew up a competitive swimmer and has loved sports for as long as she can remember. We love baseball, football, soccer, and basketball, and already have mini jerseys picked out for our child. Whether it's college sports or professional, we look forward to sharing our love for all things athletic!
