We enjoy taking vacations, love dirt track races, snorkeling, scuba diving, bowling, the beach, traveling, supporting Allyson’s talent in cheerleading (and anything else she aspires to do), watching tv together, arts and crafts, attending sporting events, spending time with our family and friends, and any new adventure that may come our way. Although we really enjoy our free time, we are invested in making sure our children have a positive educational experience. We have excellent public schools in our area. The elementary school our home is zoned for is currently graded B and since 2008, it has received 7 A’s. The junior high is currently an A school, and the high school is graded B. As you can probably see in our family portfolio book, we also encourage college dreams (at any age).
At this point you may be wondering our motive for adoption, well, it’s simple really…we wanted children. The dilemma is we both struggle with fertility obstacles, yet we dreamed of expanding our family with another child and immediately discussed adoption when we first started dating…about one month into our relationship to be exact! It was just such an easy decision that we both knew it was the right one to make. We briefly considered a vasectomy reversal late 2016. Due to issues involving many years of blocked and scar tissued fallopian tubes from IUD complications, our doctor told us our chances of conceiving naturally (with a vasectomy reversal) were below .06% each month. To some, the devastating news could have been derailing, but we always felt God guiding us towards adoption, closing the doors that weren’t meant for us, and we stayed our course, leading us to you.
Thank you again for taking the time to get to know our family! We are so honored that you have considered us to raise your child in a home full of love, support, and so many opportunities to grow. We look forward to sharing pictures and emails with you throughout the years to come and making sure your child knows that your journey to find us was that of strength and love entirely for them.
