Family & Friends

Both of us are closely connected with our family. All of Alicia’s family live in the St. Louis area, so there are many family events and parties. Alicia has three siblings (two brothers and a sister) and two nephews and a niece. Jessica’s immediate family also lives within the St. Louis area. This includes her parents, her sister and brother-in-law, her nephew, and three nieces. Jessica has also relatives whom live in California whom she visits regularly. More relatives live close enough by to come to visit on Thanksgiving.

“They have a good potential for parenting because they realize it is a serious undertaking and responsibility. I know they will do their very best to give a child the love, support, and encouragement it takes to see a child grow into a healthy, caring, well-rounded, happy person. Jess and Alicia will thrive on this journey that is a wonderful part of life” ~ Sandy, Jessica’s mom.

A great group of our friends. This was on a trip to Ireland.
