A Letter from John & Allie
We are John and Allie from sunny South Carolina. We have been together for 10 years and married for 3. We look forward to becoming first-time parents and helping your child to grow into the person they are destined to become. Our favorite thing to do together is to watch movies on our comfy couch and explore the outdoors. We look forward to having an open relationship with you to your comfort level and are open to sharing letters, pictures, videos, and visits!
We met in college, John made the first move and the rest, as they say, is history. Shortly after we were married we were faced with infertility. After several months of praying, we felt God was taking us down the road of Adoption. Growing up Allie has always had a special place in her heart for adoption because her mom was adopted at birth and now we know it is meant to be a part of our family as well!
We both enjoy being outside- taking in the beauty of nature through walks, hikes, and neighborhood strolls. We also enjoy relaxing at home, cuddling up on the couch, and watching a good movie with our pets. We are both in love with Disney! We are so excited to go on family walks around our neighborhood with your child, explore the outdoors with them through day trips, and share with them our passion for all things Disney. Above all, we look forward to sharing all of our love with them!
I met John in college and was drawn to his outgoing and friendly personality. He cares so much for his family and he will do whatever it takes to make sure everyone is taken care of- including the pets! John is definitely a kid at heart and he is my number one supporter- something I know he will be for our child too.
John has been working for the same company for almost 1o years now, he works in transportation logistics. Although he has been promoted five times, he still has the opportunity for further advancement and this job has created lots of stability. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with our dog, Elsa, by taking her on walks and playing video games. John is so excited to be a dad and looks forward to taking our child on car rides, sharing with them his love for music, and teaching them how to throw the ball for Elsa.
Allie is currently a preschool teacher and it is honestly the best career for her because of her love for children. Allie is a perfect balance of thoughtful, fun, and adventurous. She tries new things, always wants to explore new places and is a natural with kids of all ages. Allie is a very creative person and enjoys making crafts (especially when it comes to using her vinyl craft machine) and loves taking tons of pictures.
Allie is looking forward to sharing her love of the outdoors with our child and helping them to explore the world around them. She’s excited to share her love of Disney with our child and will, I’m sure, rewatch all of the Disney movies with them 20 times over if they ask! She will also share the love of Jesus with them while also showing them the importance of making the world a better place.
Allie’s parents live 5 miles down the road from us and they are ecstatic to become first-time grandparents, she also has two younger sisters who also live in South Carolina. John’s family lives a couple of hours away by the beach. John’s mom is so excited to welcome another grandchild! They are all so excited about our adoption.
Christmas and Thanksgiving are huge get-togethers for our family. We are excited to include our child in family gatherings and sharing all of their first with you.
We live in a cozy 1 story home with 2 bedrooms and a nursery already set up. It has just the right amount of space for our growing family and a fenced-inbackyard. Inside, we have lots of pictures of us and our family, Disney decorations, and bible verses. Our home is located perfectly between the beach and the mountains making for some great weekend getaways and day trips. We share our home with 2 pets- our dog, Elsa, and our cat, Buzz.
We have yearly passes to all the state parks as well as a membership to the local zoo- both of which we are excited to share with our child!.
We promise to shower your child with unconditional love, to be there for them through the good times and the hard, and to support them in all that they do. We promise they will know their story and learn who you are because you will be a part of our family too. We are looking forward to experiencing all the firsts, going to Disney World, watching them grow up, helping them with whatever life comes their way, and making lots of memories together with them.
