Kim and Randy
I have been a Parent Therapist with Quinte Children’s Homes since October 2004 and Randy since the summer of 2009. We purchased our first home together in September of 2010. We are both very family oriented and active within our community by playing sports and volunteering for charity events. Randy plays professional hockey and is away 6 to 8 months of the year, but travels home as frequent as he can and trips are planned to visit him as well. We both maintain healthy lifestyles and make physical fitness part of our daily routine. We encourage this with our two foster children as well.
We create a family atmosphere and encourage mutual respect in the home. We implement daily routines and structure into our day. We ensure that quality time is spent with each member of the home. Any issues within the home are looked at as learning opportunities to develop new skills and grow as individuals.
Description of Home
Our home is just two years old on a quiet subdivision, just minutes from the new YMCA in Trenton. It is a 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home. We also have a playroom and large rec room area. We have a fair size backyard with deck and hot tub. We have also ensured that we are equipped with lots of outdoor toys such as hockey and basketball nets. There is also a small park on our street.
We have a very friendly 8 year old black lab named Cassie that loves to play catch and go for walks.
