Seems like all adoption agencies and independent profile sites LOVE the list o’ favorites. Our placement agency is no exception. I thought you might like to see our lists.

Some of Don’s Highlights

Favorite animal – Squirrels
I know – so cute.

Favorite children memory - Feeding ducks with his grandmother.
He does not mention that his grandmother let him skip Montessori Kindergarten in order to feed these ducks.

Hero – My dad
Awww.

Thing to Cook – Omelettes
Yeah, he does make an awesome omelette.

Some of Susan’s highlights

Childhood Toy – Kermit, Miss Piggy and Scooter
Did anyone else have these? Scooter was probably my favorite. Boy, did I love those things.

Hero – My grandfather who came to the U.S. with nothing and made a happy life
He taught me that if you love what you do, you’ll never “work” a day in your life.

Tradition – Hosting a big back yard bash to welcome summer and Don’s birthday
We had to skip it last year and I was so, so sad.

Vegetable – Brussels Sprouts
I love them so much it’s crazy. And, yes, I know they are usually everyone’s LEAST favorite.

    This is so sweet. Enjoyed the read. And pleasant memories that you shared. I, too, have many happy memories of my childhood. I was raised by wonderful parents who lived to be 93 years young, and married 71 years…..

    Hugs.
