A Letter from Daniel & Allyson
Hello! We are a warm Christian couple, with a loving, stable home, and we’re ready to welcome your child into our family! We have always been interested in adoption, and after experiencing infertility, we decided on adoption rather than medical treatments. We are ready to offer your child unconditional love, tender support and encouragement, a strong education, and a wide variety of opportunities!
We hope this gives you a picture of what our life together is like and what kind of parents we will be. We are so excited to begin this journey into parenthood!
We are college sweethearts that have been married for 14 years. We are truly partners in life, complementing each other’s strengths and weaknesses well. Through everything we’ve been through, God has taught us to communicate effectively and work together. We love traveling, playing with our dogs, supporting local charities, walking on the beach, and entertaining friends and family in our home. We pride ourselves in being an emotionally and financially stable couple.
Our motto is “working together to make our little corner of the world better.” We are devoted to serving our community, caring for our friends and neighbors, honoring our family, and loving others the way Christ does. We want to instill these values in our children and do everything we can to develop them into responsible, caring people!
Daniel is a wise, intelligent man with a heart big enough for the whole world! His generosity and calm strength drew me to him when we first met; he loves everyone and will do anything to help someone in need. Daniel is my protector, provider, and biggest supporter–my perfect, God-given partner!
He is a natural father who decided at a young age that his goal in life was to provide a stable, nurturing environment for his family. Daniel has learned a lot of things from his own upbringing that will make him a strong, involved father himself. He will be an active dad, throwing tea parties, building living room forts, and telling lots of “dad jokes.” He is a fantastic cook and will be an amazing role model!
Allyson loves more fiercely than anyone I know. I was drawn to her beauty, both outside and in. I fell in love instantly with her sense of humor and her caring for others. She is very organized, keeping our household on track with everything from finances to appointments. She loves spending time on the beach, reading, painting, and riding her bicycle.
I knew Allyson would make a wonderful mother early in our relationship. She pours 100% of herself into everything she does, especially when it comes to family. Allyson talks to her family daily even though they live in another state, and I know that she will be even more devoted to our child. I always know how much she loves me, and I know our children will feel that same devoted love.
The best part about our house? It’s at the beach! We live in a beautifully remodeled coastal cottage in a small island community. Our three-story home has three bedrooms, a large open kitchen, three decks for enjoying the sun and sea air, and a large fenced backyard perfect for running and playing with our dogs. Our quiet neighborhood is one block from the beach and has three parks, a fishing pier, and lots of shops and cafes. Our supportive and caring neighbors are beyond excited to welcome our child to this wonderful community!
We have an extended family, filled with fun and laughter, who are ready to welcome our new baby! We have 4 nephews and 2 nieces, and our future child will have with numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. Family gatherings always include lots of food, laughter, games, and even a practical joke or two! Our family especially loves attending sporting events and concerts together!
We also have a tight community of friends we consider family. We enjoy boating, traveling, attending community events, hosting meals, and exploring our town together. They are so excited about our plans to grow our family through adoption!
We promise to love your child unconditionally and provide him or her with a stable, Christ-centered home. Your child will always know their adoption story and be raised with pride in their heritage. We promise to provide unwavering support, a strong education, and many opportunities for your child to develop their interests and passions. Your child will grow up in a strong, nurturing community that focuses on loving others as Christ loves us. We are also open to sharing letters, pictures, and yearly visits with you, at your comfort level.
