Featured Family: MaryEllen and Andrew
We are looking to adopt up to four siblings up to 10 years old. We are not picky! We can't wait to see all those little faces each morning, dark or light or any where in between. How awesome to have a culturally diverse home! Any gender. Special needs? We are open. Bio family? Let's keep in touch in a healthy way for everyone.
We first met while in graduate school and have been traveling and enjoying our fun loving outdoor lifestyle for the past 10 years. Both of us are medical professionals so we share a deep understanding of the other's jobs. Andrew is an ER doctor and Maryellen is a nurse practitioner. On our days off, we often go for the great outdoors--mountain biking, skiing, paddle boarding, camping, boating, fishing, etc. Andrew's goal is basically to live life as if he were at kid at summer camp every day so he needs some playmates.
