About us:

We are native Alabamians having grown up here and educated here. My wife and I are attorneys who have a law practice that spans all of Alabama and Florida, US. I do class action litigation and my wife Domestic Law. We have three daughters, two identical twin girls, age 14, and an adopted child from Guatamala age 5. They are the neatest teenagers alive, made so by their mother. We are Christians of the Catholic faith. We long to travel other parts of the world and see the swapping home idea as a great one. We are very careful of others property and often times treat it with more care than some of our own. We would love to exchange and share the wonderful home we have and this most beautiful of places in the US.
