Jimmy & Dave
We’re happy you’re taking the time to read our profile. We are Jimmy and Dave and here is a little about ourselves:
We are a happily married gay couple who live in Vancouver. Our neighbourhood, 15 minutes outside of the downtown core, is a safe and quiet area with great schools, parks, restaurants, and cafes within close walking distance. We are close enough to nature to hike and camp regularly in the summer and ski and snowshoe in the winter. We live in a diverse and vibrant neighbourhood where gay and mixed race families feel welcome.
We both come from loving families. Dave grew up in Toronto in a family of six. Jimmy grew up in a family of four with a large extended family in Vancouver. Our children can look forward to a loving community of grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. We value family togetherness and believe in providing the same love and sense of belonging to our children.
Dave loves the outdoors. It’s hard to get him to pass up a chance to climb a mountain. His adventures have taken him from local hills to the Rockies, the Andes and Mount Fuji. He also enjoys playing recreational volleyball, tennis and curling. He loves listening to folk music and attending summer festivals. Jimmy is passionate about literature, art, politics and science and is an avid listener of CBC radio. He spends his free time cooking, salsa dancing and playing tennis and water polo. He volunteers as a Big Brother and speaks five languages.
We have stable and rewarding jobs that we enjoy. Jimmy works for the federal public service and Dave is a high school Math and Special Education teacher. We have both lived and worked overseas: Jimmy taught English in Japan and studied in Chile. Dave studied in Ecuador and worked in Cuba teaching children about Urban Agriculture. We try to take a major trip every year and look forward to introducing our children to different cultures and places. Other adventures have taken us to Turkey, Indonesia, the Caribbean, California and Japan.
As a gay couple, we choose adoption as our first choice to expand our family. We know we will make great parents and will offer a safe, stable, and exciting life for our children. We look forward to hearing from you.
