Our home in South Carolina is just outside of the city and about 30 minutes from the beach on 5 acres. Many of our neighbors have adopted children and their families are culturally and ethnically mixed. Around here, there are 300 year old oaks with tire swings in the yards and some of the families even have chickens and horses. We live in a safe place where neighbors keep an eye out for each other. It is a safe, friendly neighborhood that we feel lucky to live in.
