Hi! We are Allen and Heidi. We are excited to share a piece of our lives with you through this letter. We empathize as you are facing one of the toughest decisions of your life in choosing adoptive parents for your child. We can only imagine the challenges you are going through in this journey. We hope to share a snapshot of our family life with you. We are native Californians. Disneyland is literally the "Happiest Place on Earth" for us as this was where we met while working on Autopia. After dating a few years, we got married in 2004 by Yosemite where Heidi grew up. We always knew we were meant to be parents. Unfortunately, we could not conceive on our own. Adoption became the answer to many years of prayer and blessed us with our two beautiful daughters. We both come from large close-knit families. We have 9 nieces and a nephew we enjoy spending time with. We volunteer with the children's ministry program at our church. On Saturdays you will find us making family memories: hiking, visiting children's museums, going to the beach, playing at the park, watching our girls play soccer, or looking for new adventures together as a family. We love sporting events too. We both finished college and have jobs allowing us to spend a lot of time together as a family. Allen works for the Beckman Laser Institute at UC Irvine and has a flexible schedule allowing him to stay home with the girls on Thursdays. Heidi teaches elementary school, so she is home full time in the summer and every holiday. Our oldest is attending kindergarten where Heidi works and our youngest attends pre-school about 1 mile away. We live in Southern California. Our dog, loves running playing in the backyard with our girls. Our neighborhood is filled with children riding their bikes and families walking their dogs.
We consider you a blessing in our lives and appreciate you considering us as possible adoptive parents for your child. We are committed to offering this child a life of unconditional love and constant nurturing. We believe he or she should always know and feel your love and we will do everything we can to make sure of that. We have open adoptions with both our children. We firmly believe in all things God works for the good of those who love him. We pray that you will have strength and wisdom as you make this important decision. We are represented by Nightlight Christian Adoptions.
