On warmer days in Watford City, it is not uncommon to spot John and Alyssa Quade making their way around town on bright bikes. With many trips and trails to set out on, the couple’s life is filled with adventure.
But the real bright spot in their life is their daughter, Patience, who they welcomed through the process of a private adoption in 2019.
“I love seeing the world through her eyes. She has this unfettered enthusiasm for life,” says Alyssa.
