For two and a half years, I have been waiting to post pictures of this sweet kid! Friends of mine, Joe and Ginger, started fostering Daniel when he was one week old. I got to meet him and cuddle with him the first day he was in their home. And I've gotten to watch him grow into a spunky, sweet, smiling almost 3 year old! I've taught him important things, like that his fingers are called phalanges (I'm not sure he knows they are also called fingers!). Today, I was able to witness his adoption! I cried (no surprise there) and I couldn't wipe the smile off my face. I am so excited to watch him grow up as a Burke!
Let's see. I am in my thirties and single. I love spending time with my family, friends, reading, playing games, and spectating (but not playing) sports. I was born in Illinois, raised in Georgia, and went to graduate school in Texas. I now live back in Illinois. I work at an agency doing in-home therapy with kids and their families. I attend Bethany Baptist Church and work with AWANA, volunteer in the nursery, and am active in the Career class. My favorite drink is Dr. Pepper (I even like Dr. Pepper Jelly Bellies). Winter is my favorite time of year and in the winter I love to curl up with a good book and a mug of hot chocolate.
