Becky’s parents reside in sunny Florida. Visiting them is a tropical vacation, enjoying sparkling beaches and Disney World. Her brother and sister-in-law live close by and we visit often for barbecues and holiday gatherings. We love having sleepovers with our nephew (7) and niece (4), playing on the playground, engaging in a spirited game of Mario Kart, and eating homemade cookies. Becky’s grandmother resides close by and is looking forward to adoring her great-grandchild.
Dave’s mother also lives locally and is always willing to lend a hand. She is a retired teacher who loves children and understands child development. She can’t wait to have another grandchild. Dave’s brother and his family live in Massachusetts. We spend time with them at the cabin over the summer enjoying our favorite family traditions, such as playing in the pristine lake with our niece (8) and nephew (5).
We are also surrounded by many other aunts, uncles, cousins, and step family members. We have a wide circle of friends who have young children of their own. We feel so fortunate to be able to raise our baby in the open, supportive arms of our family and friends.
