Thank you so much for taking the time to read our information and get to know us a little bit. I’m sure you have a lot of emotions right now as an expectant mama. We are so excited to grow our family through adoption. We want to give a child a safe home full of love and laughter. We love the Lord and want to share his love with all of those around us. We so enjoy being a family and just know that adding another member will only make it better.
Drew and I have been married for over 6 years and have a 3 year old son. We currently live in Central Texas. Drew and I met in college at Texas A&M University (whoop!) We both had the same degree and ended up having the exact same schedule one semester. Over time we fell in love and were engaged not long after we graduated. We were married in a wonderful celebration with family and friends in 2011. We enjoy spending time outside as a family - especially going to the park. Drew and I like running and have completed several races. I do Camp Gladiator (exercise boot camp) early in the mornings before anyone gets up and Drew enjoys working in the yard and garden. We like to travel and explore God’s creation and we love trying new foods! Drew is a great guitar player and wants to pass this gift along to all our children. We both volunteer at our church – AWANA, nursery, and co-lead an adult small group. I serve on a volunteer committee for Chosen – a ministry that serves adoptive and foster children and their families. I work for the City as a construction project manager and Drew is a project manager for a general contractor and builds schools and other large projects. We both really enjoy our jobs and the value they bring to the community. We have a close-knit extended family and talk to them frequently. We visit them often as well. All our family is very supportive of our adoption and they cannot wait to welcome another member to the family. My parents live close by and my mom watches Jackson when Drew and I are at work. Since I work in the same town that we live in, I get to have lunch with Jackson almost every day and attend any events he may have in his Mother’s Day Out Program or doctor’s visits, etc. My mom will continue to watch Jackson and the new baby in our home once I go back to work.
We hope to have an open relationship with the birth mother of our child. We would love to share pictures, letters, etc. and have face-to-face visits. Ultimately that will be up to her and we respect that decision no matter what. Regardless of the relationship, she will be an important part of our child’s story and we will give her the utmost respect. Please know that regardless of the decision you make for you and your child, we are praying that you have a safe and healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.
