In five years, our relationship with you will...

Hopefully be open and friendly. We want our child to know where they come from, and for them to be able to get the answers they may want someday when they’re ready.

My neighborhood is a good place to raise a family because…

It’s well located on a child friendly street, with several other children. It’s less than a block away from the local hospital, where Danny works, and is close to the primary schools.

My philosophy on parenting is...

Children should be nurtured and guided, as well as be shown respect. Expectations and boundaries of course will be set, but parents also breed to understand that kids will make mistakes and learn.

Daniel

I would never...

Use physical punishment on my children.

Daniel

Dogs or cats?

Dogs! We have three furbabies: Jax, Cordi, and Dobby.

Daniel

We are the best choice because…

We have both always wanted to be parents, and we’re ready for the privilege of raising a child. We come from loving families who are excited for us and are eager to welcome a new child to our family.

Daniel

Do you have kids? How would they feel about a sibling?

We do not yet have any children. However, we have nieces and nephews who would love to have another cousin.

Daniel

Gamers! Video games, board games, role playing games - we love them all!
