A Letter from David & Allison

Howdy from Texas! Thank you for taking the time to learn about our family of three! Whether playing games, working puzzles, camping, or sharing the love of Christ with others, we look forward to including your child in everything we do and are as a family. We are especially excited to help them grow in their own interests and hobbies while teaching them about God’s love.

About Us

Allison and her son Thomas met David 8 years ago while attending Saturday night church. While pursuing God’s plans for our lives, we developed an incredible friendship that eventually blossomed into love. We have one son, Thomas (15) who is a sophomore in high school. As a couple, we enjoy trying new restaurants, traveling, going on walks, and going on mission trips. As a family of 3, we enjoy camping, going to Renaissance Festivals (in costume!), going to church, and spending time with friends and family. We are excited to include your child in these activities.

We both love children and have known that, since we started dating, adoption was the way to grow our family since Allison can no longer have children. We are always up for the next fun adventure, whether it be traveling, trying new foods, or making new friends.  We look forward to serving others and going on family mission trips together.  We are thrilled to start this journey with you and welcome your child into our family!

About Allison

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 and Thomas enjoy working puzzles together. She has a strong faith and loves serving others on mission trips, with India being her favorite. Allison has worked in nursing for 20 years in different capacities and has even saved a life by performing CPR. Allison enjoys reading, baking, and trying new recipes. She also loves elephants and was excited to visit an elephant sanctuary. Allison keeps us all laughing with her amazing dad jokes! Allison cannot wait to read Goodnight Moon and Dr. Seuss books to your child and is excited to teach them how to bake!

About David

David is the most patient and consistent man I know, listening more than he talks. He serves others well and always points others to Christ. David has gone on several mission trips including Boston, Brazil, and India. He is an amazing supportive stepfather to Thomas. He enjoys playing Dungeons and Dragons or video games with Thomas and reading devotionals in the car on the way to school. David loves working with children and teaches church preschool. He has worked as a software developer for 17 years with the same company. David enjoys all games, skydiving, roller coasters, and anything else that gets his adrenaline pumping! As a father, David is excited to teach your child how to play board games like Catan and Dominion and is looking forward to teaching them about camping.

Our Son and Family

Our Son, Thomas, is 15 years old and enjoys reading, Legos, Star Wars, history, and all kinds of games. He plays the trumpet in his high school’s marching band, is active in our church’s youth group, and can typically be found playing on the computer or his switch or with his friends. Thomas is kind, caring, and loves spending time with his cousins! Thomas is going to be a great big brother and is excited to teach your child about lightsaber duels and Harry Potter.

We both come from supportive, close-knit families that are excited about our decision to adopt. While Allison’s parents live nearby, David’s parents live near the beach and visit often. Allison has two sisters and David has one brother that we enjoy spending time with when possible. Your child will never lack love, attention, or support from our family!

Our Texas Home

We live in a two-story 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath house in an excellent school district. Our fenced backyard has plenty of space to play. David enjoys grilling and Allison enjoys hosting game nights. There are several parks and pools in our neighborhood and hiking trails, water parks, and sports venues nearby. We have a room picked out upstairs for your child and cannot wait to decorate it with them in mind! We have one dog named Scout, who is friendly, playful, and always excited to meet someone new!

Our Promise

We promise to always provide your child with unconditional love and to celebrate their achievements, support them through challenges, and provide them with a strong education. We are excited to teach them how to read, swim, play board games, and chase after their dreams and passions. We will give them every opportunity to embrace their heritage and culture while teaching them about Jesus and the importance of a relationship with Him. We will always speak of you with respect and love so that your child will always know how much you love them. We look forward to sharing your child’s growth and accomplishments with you through letters, pictures, and visits if that is your desire.
