Dr. Pickell’s last name really is pronounced “pickle” and even he enjoys laughing at it and thinks it’s funny! He has several hobbies, including reading, running, traveling, eating anything with chocolate or peanut butter, and being involved with his church. He loves to spend time with his wife and their German Shepherd, Charlie. Dr. Pickell grew up in East Tennessee and loves UT football! He goes back to watch games whenever he can – go VOLS! The abundance of pumpkin pie and pecan pie make Thanksgiving his favorite holiday, as well as the chance to spend extra time with his family. Some of Dr. Pickell’s favorite children’s books include The Little Prince, The Hobbit, Where the Wild Things Are, Harold and the Purple Crayon, Winnie-the-Pooh, and the Babar books.

Dr. McNemar has a family of 5, including her husband, two boys, and dog, Dyson.

Read More

We are so grateful for everyone who helped us along the way, and feel strongly about helping other families and kids find forever homes. Our experience with adoption has shown us some of the clearest, deepest, real life examples of the Gospel and Christ’s sacrificial love in our lives, and it is a true privilege to help other families see that as well.”
Using her gifts, Dr. McNemar wants to make an impact in the lives of those around her. She says, “It is such a joy to partner with parents to care for their children. It is such a rewarding experience to watch children grow and flourish, and to play even a small part in that process.” Dr. McNemar also loves Harry Potter, enjoys hiking, and her favorite childrens books are Harold and the Purple Crown and The Lorax.

Charise also sings in a professional community choir – Rivertree Singers, has been to Haiti five times for medical missions (even speaks Haitian Creole!), and treats herself to Starbucks hot chocolate.
