Some favorite activities include: biking, baseball, hanging out with friends, building/inventing and reading. He is responsible and good at school. Dan is a worrier. He has OCD which surfaces more when he is stressed. He definitely cares about doing his best and follows the rules and expectations. The parents are professionals and love their jobs. They occasionally travel for work but coordinate it so that it doesn't happen at the same time. They enjoy spending time together catching up on each others days at dinner, bike rides, hiking, movies, traveling, family game night etc. The boys have several friends in the neighborhood and enjoy all spending time together. They are looking forward to welcoming someone as a extension of their family and have been blessed with great relationships in the past.
