We live in beautiful Southern California, in the scenic city of Camarillo, nestled in Pleasant Valley, with the Santa Susana Mountains to our north, and the beautiful sandy beaches just a short drive west.
Our weekends usually include a trip to the zoo, the beach, a hike, a bike ride, or going somewhere new to explore.
About Cristabel (by Derek)
She’s the best. My wife is an affectionate and beautiful person and mother. She’s originally from Honduras and speaks fluent Spanish and English and is teaching Sloan to be bilingual. She works as a Website Manager, but her priority is spending time with and taking care of our family. We’ve been happily married for 14 years.
About Derek (by Cristabel)
I love that Derek is a kind, patient husband and father. He’s a physical education teacher who inspires 100s of kids to be active and believe in themselves. I like that he is passionate about overall wellness, not just physical health, but making time for family connectedness and family fun.
Sloan is super social and loving. He cares about others and even tries to comfort babies when they cry. He will be a loving and protective big brother. We adopted Sloan when he was seven days old. He’s 3 now, and we feel incredibly lucky that he knows his birth mom, FaceTime’s with her and knows his extended birth family.
