Rachel and I co-own a small Indian food business where I work as the chef. While I was in India, I worked with an organization that worked to rescue people from trafficking and modern-day slavery. I still have a heart to help those rescued from slavery and part of the proceeds from our food business goes to educate children rescued from slavery.
Working as a Children’s Director at a church 3 days a week, I’m passionate about serving others and enjoying life to the fullest! I love celebrating holidays with our family and friends. I even started the tradition of always wearing matching pajamas on Christmas day and making Italian cookies with my mom. We can’t wait for our child to join us in these traditions and start new ones!
Adoption is already a part of our story!
Rachel was adopted by her stepfather at the age of three, John’s mom was adopted by her aunt as a baby, and John’s brother was adopted into his family.
We have both experienced first-hand the beauty of adoption and know family doesn’t have to be made up of biology. When we discovered soon after we were married that having a biological child would be challenging for us, we knew adoption would be the way to grow our family.
We are excited to be on this journey!
Disney hold’s a special place in our hearts! Living in Florida allows us the opportunity to visit more often. We love the sense of special Disney magic and fun!
My favorite food is pizza! It reminds me of my childhood and pizza nights with the family. We have a lot of great gourmet pizza restaurants in town and I love to try all the varieties and toppings, but also just love a good ole’ Papa John’s pizza!
I love going hiking on trails with John, being in nature, and the beauty of the outdoors. This has always been something that gives me life and makes me feel alive.
Buzz Lightyear – I’m a big fan of the Toy Story movies and I always thought Buzz Lightyear was hilarious.
Biryani, this is an Indian rice dish. It is very flavorful and reminds me of India.
Cricket. I love to watch and play Cricket. I played Cricket in College.
Mickey Mouse. I never knew about Disney or Disney movies until I met Rachel. It’s been fun to learn all these things and we enjoy going to the parks.
