This is our story……
Dexter and I (Patricia) have been married since 1995. We met in college and have been on an incredible journey since. We have learned the art of being students of one another, understanding that our life together is a journey and is ever changing. Marriage is hard work, but we believe a covenant made with the Lord is worth fighting for. We don’t pretend to have it all together, but we have learned some valuable lessons along the way that we love sharing with others.
Tony is our oldest son. He is a graduate of Auburn University and is currently working as a Real Estate Agent/Broker in Auburn. He is in Flight School and plans to pursue a career as a pilot. He is our extreme adventure child. He loves traveling, sky diving, wake boarding, snow boarding, surfing, hunting, playing the guitar and writing songs. Even with all this to keep him busy, he still loves being at home with the family. He has the gift of serving others and a heart for those with disabilities.
Parker is our next son who is 21 and a senior at Auburn University. He will be pursuing his Masters in Physician Assistant this fall at Samford University. He would be described by many as a leader, consistent, and does not compromise. He loves baseball and Alabama football, traveling, duck hunting and wake boarding. He serves as a Freedom Group leader and coach and works with the College Ministry at his church. He also loves being at home with the family. He has a passion for making disciples.
Sarah-Gracen is our 18 year old daughter who is a Freshman at Faulkner University and on their Volleyball team. She is an education major and plans to be an Early Childhood teacher. She is the perfect blend of girlie girl mixed with a little a tom boy, hence she is very competitive. She is my social butterfly, filling up her calendar quite effectively. Volleyball, four wheeling, fishing, and hanging out with friends are the things she spends time doing. She has the gift of encouragement and seeks out those who need a friend. She has a beautiful voice and blesses us greatly when she leads worship.
Camden is our eleventh grade son who is 17 years old. He, like his brothers, also loves being at home. You will find him on the futsol court and soccer field. He is a self taught keyboard, guitar, eukele and bass player. He loves playing games on the home computer he built. He is a godly young man, very compassionate, and always willing to help. He plans to go to Auburn for his undergraduate degree and continue on to Physical Therapy school.
Maggie Mae is our 10 year old daughter we adopted from China in 2010. She is visually impaired, but that does not keep her from embracing life. You can read about our journey through adoption at maggiemaewatts.blogspot.com. She is full of joy, makes everyone around her laugh, loves music and building. Her desire to be an athlete like her siblings happened this year when she made the YMCA Barracuda swim team. She is amazing to watch and works so hard! She is always honest and tells it like it is and loves to be your helper!
And then there are the endless animals that are finding refuge here! We have 13 chickens, too many to name, Bruce Wayne our black goldendoodle, Ellie Jean, Maggie Mae’s schnoodle, George Banks our english springer spaniel, Chip, Tony’s boykin spaniel, and Callie, the only surviving cat.
