Raised in North Carolina, Christy loves sweet tea (think watery syrup), lightning bugs, and fall leaves. After over a decade years in South Texas, she now considers herself “from the Valley,” and can’t seem to get enough of mango raspas, afternoons by the pool and, of course, botanas. Her family has ridden the roller coaster that is foster and adoptive parenting for the last eight years and they are much the better for it. Christy loves doing life with her husband, Caleb, and their four kids.
