A Letter from David & Allison
Howdy from the great state of Texas! We are a blended family who enjoy game nights with family and friends and look forward to attending the Renaissance Festival (in costume!) each year. We are excited to grow our family through adoption! We would love to get to know you and, if you’d like, we’d love to share an open adoption!
We met at church over 10 years ago and immediately started a strong friendship that blossomed into love and marriage. We have one son, Thomas, who is a senior in high school. We knew from the time we started dating that adoption was how we would like to grow our family someday, since Allison can no longer have children. We are so excited to be on this journey to adopt a child!
As a couple, we enjoy:
• Volunteering in our church nursery
• Taking the dog for a walk or hiking
• Serving together on mission trips
• Trying new restaurants/new foods
• Cozy evenings at home watching TV/movies
David says: Allison is compassionate, loving, and gets along with anyone. She is a great mother to Thomas and makes sure he knows he is always loved. Allison is a nurse and has worked in many different roles. She has a strong faith in Christ, which is an important part of the way she is as a mom. Allison is really looking forward to reading Goodnight Moon and Dr. Seuss books at bedtime with our child!
• Trying new recipes
• Working puzzles
Allison says: David is the most patient and consistent man I know, listening more than he talks. He is an amazing, supportive stepdad to Thomas and enjoys guiding our family Bible reading time each evening. David works as a software developer and loves his job. He serves others well, and his life always points others to Christ. As a father, David is excited to teach our child how to play board games.
• All types of games, but especially video games
• Indoor Skydiving
• Roller coasters
• Amateur Photography
Thomas is Allison’s 18-year-old son, who David has lovingly embraced as his stepson. Thomas is kind and caring. He loves gaming on his computer and playing the trumpet in the band. He is going to be such a good big brother who cannot wait to teach his little brother or sister about Star Wars and Harry Potter!
As a family, we enjoy:
• Watching Thomas play in the high school band
• Going to church
• Escape rooms
• Hosting game nights
• Spending time with extended family
We live in North Texas in a community that has excellent schools, as well as several parks and pools. Our 4-bedroom house has a fenced back yard with plenty of room for running and playing. We have a nursery upstairs that we have already started decorating with special artwork created by our friends! We live near hiking trails, water parks, and several sports venues. There are many different restaurants from many different ethnicities near our house too! We have one dog named Scout who is friendly, playful, and is great with kids!
In our home we:
• Always love unconditionally
• Always show respect to everyone
• Go to church every Sunday (if possible)
• Encourage honest and open communication
• Eat dinner together as much as possible
• Build each other up
We will always be honest and open about how our family came together and we will always speak of you with love and respect. We would love to form a relationship with you and others in your child’s birth family, if you are OK with that. Your child will always know how loved, accepted, and supported they are!
We Promise to:
• Honor our commitment to you and your child
• Love unconditionally
• Celebrate their achievements and support them through challenges
• Provide them with a strong education so they can chase their dreams and passions
• Embrace their heritage and culture
• Teach them about Jesus and the importance of a relationship with Him
• Have fun!

|More About Our Family
|Our Loved Ones
We both come from supportive and close-knit families. Allison's parents live nearby while David’s parents live near the beach and visit often. Allison has two sisters and David has one brother. We have 2 nieces and 4 nephews. Allison’s twin sister has adopted 4 children who are all racially diverse. This will be the 8th grandchild for Allison’s parents and the first grandchild for David’s parents. Both families are very excited to add another little one to the family. There will never be a lack of love, attention, or support!
|Our Hopes and Plans for the Future
We plan to stay in Texas and live near family! We hope to own a camper one day so that we can visit and camp at as many different national parks as possible. We look forward to taking our child to Disney World to meet Mickey Mouse! David looks forward to teaching our child how to ride a bike and participating in Boy/Girl Scouts with them. Allison dreams of making our child a birthday treat each year and is excited to be able to carry on the Christmas tradition of matching family pajama pants each year. Eventually we would love to provide/pay for their college education so they would graduate without any debt. Thomas is planning to pursue a degree in Video Game Design. His plan is to go to community college before completing his education at a university. He is excited to stay close to home and be a part of his future sibling's life. Above all else, we hope our child will come to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ!
