Adoptive couple Brice and Rachael playing MonopolyI recently had the opportunity to chat with hopeful adoptive parents Brice and Rachael from South Carolina. I asked them some fun questions that you won’t find in their adoption profile, and I learned that they are a warm, friendly Christian couple in the South who are so excited to adopt again!
As they put it, “As Christians, we will raise your child to love the Lord and others, have faith, and be kind, as we have begun doing with our son now.”

1. What is your favorite holiday?

We love Christmas! Putting up the Christmas tree (or trees), singing carols, riding around to look at Christmas lights, and Christmas baking are just a few of the things we like to do in our family of three and our
extended family.
Once the Halloween costumes are put away (much to Brice’s dismay), the Christmas bells start ringing in our house! After Thanksgiving, though, Brice goes all out for the Christmas lights and decorations outside, and we spend almost every night of December with hot chocolate and Christmas movies playing. We also just love to make lists and buy things for our family! It really is the most wonderful time of the year!

2. You’re stranded on a desert island and can only take 5 movies. What are they?

Rachael: Steel Magnolias, Fried Green Tomatoes, Frozen 2, A Walk to Remember, and Tyler Perry: Why Did I Get Married
Brice: Avengers Infinity War, Thor Ragnarok, Cast Away, Happy Gilmore, and Jim Carey’s Christmas Carol

3. If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Rachael: I would never get tired of Mexican food, especially chips and queso. I could live off of that if I had to.
Brice: I would eat barbeque chicken for the rest of my life.

4. Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want as a dinner guest?

Brice: I would want Mel Gibson because I love any role he has ever played in any movie he has ever been in.
Rachael: Although it is not someone famous, I would want to sit down with my granddad, whom we called ‘Daddy Jake’. He died when I was a toddler and was the patriarch and rock of the family. I feel like a lot of things would have been different had he been around. I would love to hear stories from him about my dad and when my parents met. I’d also love to see him with his great grandchildren. I feel certain he would have spoiled the heck out of my sister, myself, and our children.

5. What Disney character are you most like?

We LOVE Disney, so we took this one very seriously! We even took online character tests to find out…
Rachael got Belle from Beauty and the Beast. She is quiet and kind but can mean business when it is serious. She LOVES love and cares about the people around her. She would be willing to trade places with them just like Belle did for her father. She also cannot get enough reading and books, just like Belle.
Brice took the quiz and got Donald Duck, which may seem odd at first. But when you truly think about it, Donald loved his family. He took in his nephews and cared for Daisy and his family more than anything. He could be a lot, but he also loves a LOT! Brice is just like that in so many ways.
