A Letter from Andrew & Allison
Hello! We are honored you are taking the time to get to know us a little more. Even though we will be first time parents, we are no strangers to adoption. We have 5 adopted nieces and nephews that we are very close with and see often. Allison is a homemaker and Andrew works just 5 minutes from the house as a Software Engineer. We are excited to bring a little one into our family!
We have been married for 5 years now. We lived next door to each other and got to know one another as we walked to the mailbox. When we got married and tried to start a family, we encountered infertility. We felt led to adoption and are very excited to welcome your child into our family. We love to travel, snow ski, hike, and do just about anything outdoors. We enjoy hosting friends and family at our house whether it’s for a holiday or social gathering. We are excited to teach your child how fun making s’mores by the fire pit, fishing, kayaking, and visiting new places can be. We also look forward to hosting their birthday parties and other youth events at our home.
Andrew is one of the most humble, genuine, and sincere people I have met. He is very talented at many things yet never boasts or brags about himself to others. Kids are just drawn to him like magnets! I think it’s because he’s relaxed and just himself at all times. He never tries to win them over, which is what attracted me to him too! He loves to travel and discover new places, be outdoors, do yard work, and is interested in all thing’s technology. I know he is excited to share his love of learning with our child.
Allison is a kind, caring, and faithful wife. She is one of the most empathetic people I know and cares deeply for others. She is a great homemaker and enjoys working out, knitting scarfs, going to Dallas Cowboys games, hosting events at our home, and anything outdoors. She loves to make sure the adults remember the fun times of their childhood and is always known as the fun aunt with her nieces and nephews. She volunteers as an admin at church every week and serves as a lead greeter at church on the weekends. I know she is excited to be a mom, to teach a child what really matters in life, and to show them the beauty of the world.
We are very close to both sides of our families. Andrew’s parents as well as his sister, with her husband and two boys, live in Florida. He talks with them often on the phone. We spend either Christmas or Thanksgiving with each side of our families ( trading off each year ). When we get together for holidays, you can bet matching pajamas, gingerbread house building, and eating lots of good food are on the list of activities. If it’s in the summer we will definitely be at the beach swimming in the ocean, riding jet skis, or building sandcastles with family! Allison’s sister, brother-in-law, four nieces, and parents all live locally in Texas. We see them pretty much weekly. Her brother lives in North Carolina with his wife and son. We see them about once or twice a year. When we are all together with Allison’s family, we will be in the pool with the kids, roasting marshmallows over the fire pit, catching fireflies in the summer, or having dinner somewhere fun. Both sides of the family are very excited about this adoption and are excited to welcome your child!
Our home is in a safe suburban neighborhood, tucked in with trees and a creek on the side. Although we live in the city it doesn’t always feel like it, because we have lots of wildlife being on the greenbelt. We live on a cul-de-sac so we often set up a game of Pickleball (similar to tennis) out front with family and friends when they come over. In the summer, you can find us in the pool after a morning of yard work. We already have a room picked out for the nursery and can’t wait to make that a cozy inviting room for the baby.
Our promise to you is that your child will know adoption is one of the greatest acts of love. They will grow up surrounded by family who adores them and loves them unconditionally. We promise to equip your child to the best of our abilities to have a fulfilling life. We promise to share our faith with your child and teach them how to love others and to be themself!

|Our Special Interests|
We love to do anything outdoors, whether that's going for a bike ride, walking/hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, swimming, etc... We are up for being in God's beautiful creation enjoying it to the fullest. We also like to travel to new destinations as often as we can to learn about the world around us.
We love attending our Christian community church that is 10 minutes away from our house. We have a close knit community group that we meet with once a week and share life with. We aim to sharpen one another to live out our faith daily in our interactions with others and our marriages. We also are greeters at our church twice a month.
|About Our Home|
Our home is a two-story house with a greenbelt of grass, trees, and creek beside us. It is a 4 bedroom 2 and 1/2 bath house with an office that we converted into a workout room and a game room. There is lots of natural light through out and it feels very inviting. What we love most about our house is all the family and friends that we get to share it with and make memories with.

Our neighborhood is a very family-oriented place. They put on several seasonal neighborhood parties a year that always have a bounce house, games, and food trucks. In the summertime, once a month, they have a movie night at the pool and offer hot dogs. We have two parks within walking distance, a fishing pond and lots of walking paths. Our next-door neighbors are amazing, we take care of each other's houses when we go out of town. Everyone looks out for one another.
