What is family?


Family is about more than blood, it's about love, spending time, and shared experiences.


One of the most influential and important people in my life has been my step-father Hans. He came into my life when I was three years old, and taught me so much about kindness, patience and love. I am thrilled to be able to do the same for Hesper, Xander's daughter (I even met her when she was 3 1/2). I love her dearly, and we are an important of each other's life, sharing so many stories, special times and laughs.


I know that Susi and Corey will be excellent parents, and will do a wonderful job teaching and sharing joy, wisdom and love with a child. We can't wait to meet you, and create some treasured life long memories as we share life's journey.


Welcome to the family.
