A Letter from Alan & Sarah
Hello! We are completely humbled that you are interested in learning more about us! We have been married for 14 years. God lead us to adoption in 2016 after 8 years of infertility. We were blessed to adopt our son, and we’re excited to expand our family once more through adoption. Here we hope you get a glimpse of how we do life during our family time, holiday celebrations, and family travel adventures.
We met in college through Alan’s sister, who was friends with Sarah. In the fall of 2005, Alan and his sister traded cell phones, and when Sarah went to text his sister ‘Merry Christmas,’ Alan received the text message instead. We immediately had a connection and began dating shortly after. We have now been together for the last 16 years!
As a family, some of our favorite activities include:
- Hiking in the mountains
- Playing in the waves/building sandcastles at the beach
- Fishing on the river
- Family pizza & movie night every Friday
Alan is the love of my life, an amazing man, husband, and incredible father! He is a kind, gentle, loving, thoughtful, hard-working, and a dedicated man of faith and patience.
Alan enjoys the simple things in life such as:
- Spending time outdoors observing nature
- Dinners at home with family
- Fly fishing in the mountains
- Hiking and exploring nature
Alan is a devoted father and a truly “hands on” dad. He is looking forward to sharing sweet moments with our children as we continue to grow as a family.
- Bikes rides

Sarah is the most amazing person I have ever met. She is compassionate, loving, strong-willed, hard-working, intelligent, and faithful. She is an amazing teacher who is able to touch the lives of the children in her care and is a true miracle worker.
- Hiking/exploring the local trails
Sarah is a wonderful mother to our son and nurtures him every day to grow to be his best self! Together, she is looking forward to expanding experiences for our children.
- Going to the playground

Julian, our son, has brought so much joy to our family! We love sharing our adventures with him as he learns about our world through family time and exploration!
His favorite things to do:

As Julian continues to grow and develop, we are in contact with and love to share pictures/updates with his birth mother! We have always spoken openly about adoption and our plans as a family for a baby bother and/or sister. As he has more questions about his own adoption and his future siblings adoption, we are prepared to answer honestly and age-appropriately.
Julian loves babies and frequently says he wants a baby brother or sister (sometimes both)! We look forward to the days when we get to watch our children play and learn together!
Our home is the epicenter of Family gatherings and holidays since we have enough room for everyone!

- 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms
- 3 wooded acres
- Play area w/jungle gym, zip line, tire swing
- Walking distance to community playground
- Neighborhood is quiet and family-oriented
Just as we have kept our promise to son’s amazing birth mother, we promise to love, cherish, and raise your child with love and provide a life full of fun experiences in a financially stable Christian home. We will cherish every moment of family time whether it be grand adventures or quiet nightly family meals around the kitchen table. We are excited to once again expand our family through the gift of adoption and promise to provide updates however you may wish.

We have found great comfort and support in our Church family/community especially when returning home with our son. Our church is ready and waiting to love on more children as our family grows.

|About Our Home|
Our home is a low country cottage nestled amongst the trees with a large yard to accommodate family games, swings, and slides. On our acreage, we have the opportunity to observe nature and wildlife including birds, rabbits, squirrels, and deer. We have a large variety of flowering plants and shrubs which attract butterflies and hummingbirds throughout the year. Year-round we maintain a garden that produces our fresh fruits, vegetables, and citrus. Indoors we enjoy a cozy space to read, listen to music, and watch movies as a family.
