“…whoever welcomes a child like this…. welcomes Me.”
A Letter from Charlie & Holly
Hello there! We are passionate, adventurous and loving people who look forward to sharing our love with your child. We love adventure, going on trips and vacations, and taking lots of pictures. We also love going to the movies and being with our friends. We look forward to taking vacations, enjoying family movie nights, and giving your child the best experiences in life: together as a family.
We met in October of 2013! Charlie was in school training to be an officer in the US Army while Holly was finishing her undergrad. We met one weekend when Charlie was visiting campus with some friends and, since our first date, we have been inseparable! We married 2 years later.
God has been calling us to adoption over the course of our entire relationship. We had discussed our dreams of having children when we were dating and found that we both had the same want for biological and adopted children.
We love to go to the movies, take our dog to the park, do escape rooms with friends, and take vacations. Sometimes we just like to be at home and cook together and watch TV or have a dance party. So long as we are together we find happiness in everything. We are excited to teach your child how to play sports, cook, solve puzzles and letting them find their own adventures and hobbies that they enjoy.
I was first drawn to Charlie was the way he pursued me as a person. He was always respectful, romantic and loved to make me laugh. He loves to help and serve people, whether it be in his job serving the soldiers he commands, or serving his friends and helping them whenever they need it. Charlie enjoys reading, writing stories and watching sports. He loves the New England Patriots and the Boston Red Sox. Charlie can always find a positive in any situation he is in. He is a joyful person and I know that he will bring lots of love, laughter, and happiness into your child’s life. He looks forward to teaching your child how to play games- inside and out, helping them with their homework, and reading to them every night before bed.
Holly is the most loving, caring, and compassionate person I have met. Everything she does in her life is for others whether that be for her first graders in school or anyone she meets. Holly loves to cook, decorate the house, and go to the beach whenever she can. She has so much love to offer to your child and I know that she will do everything possible to raise them to be happy, healthy, and confident in themselves. Holly knows firsthand the adoption process and the love that comes with adoption as she was adopted in an open adoption as an infant child. She looks forward to teaching your child how to cook, helping them with their homework, playing outside with them and taking them out to new places.
We live in a spacious two story home with over 2000 square feet. It has five bedrooms with plenty of living and playing space. We have a large backyard, big enough for a playset and swings. We share our home with two cats, Lucy and Cinderella, and our rambunctious Jack Russell Terrier, Gronk. All three of them are rescues who love to play, snuggle and give love at all times. We live behind an elementary school and are a short drive to parks and playgrounds. Home to us is where ever we are so long as we are together.
Both sides of our family are thrilled that we are adopting. Holly’s mom and dad, who live in Alabama, have already picked out their “grandparent names.” Charlie’s parents, who reside in Utah, are thrilled as well at the thought of being grandparents. They are ready to have adventures and share all that they know with your child. Charlie has two brothers and Holly has one and all of them are excited to become uncles! As a whole, our family is thrilled to welcome your child and looks forward to loving them and taking them on family holiday adventures.
We promise to be an unwavering source of love, laughter, and adventure for your child. We promise to always be fair, supportive and consistent in raising them and showing them adventures along the way. We will teach, nurture and love them throughout all stages of their life. We promise family bonding and as much communication, and updates as you wish.

We live in a large two-story home. It has five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a large kitchen for cooking and baking, as well as a large fenced in yard, big enough for a playhouse and swing set.

We have done puzzles over the years and have them framed and hung in many rooms of our house! It reminds us of the time we have spent together. Our favorite thing to do is decorate the house for the seasons, especially Christmas!
