Hi! We are Alison and Andy

We are so thankful you are considering adoption, and for thinking of us as adoptive parents. We know that we can never fully imagine the emotions that you are feeling , but we pray for you and that you have the faith that you need to find the right family- one who will love, cherish and share in the blessing of your gift of life.

Andy and I have been married since 2007. In 2016 we were blessed by adoption when our son Ryan was born. He has brought so much joy into our lives. We can not wait for him to have a baby sister to grow up with! Over the last 4 years Ryan has kept our house full of love, laughter and excitement. Becoming parents has been the greatest gift we have ever been given! There is not a day that goes by that we don’t thank God for Ryan and his Birth Mom. We hope you will be able to see how loved Ryan is and how much love we have to give to your baby.

About Us

We met in 2002 while working in a hotel in Orlando, Florida. In 2003 we officially started dating and got married on the 4 year anniversary of our 1st date in 2007! We lived in Orlando until 2011, when we moved to Jacksonville, FL!

Andy is extremely outgoing and makes friends anywhere he goes. He is fun loving, goofy, caring and compassionate; all the qualities that make a great dad and husband. Alison is always looking for the best in people. She is sincere, nurturing, sensitive, cheerful and creative; all the qualities that make her a wonderful mom and wife.

We love to travel and try new things. Since Ryan came into our lives we have realized just how important it is to spend the time making these special memories with him. There is nothing that brings us greater joy than seeing the smile on his face when he gets to experience something new!

Our Home and Family

Adopting Ryan has shown us just how important having our family around us is. Ryan is growing up knowing the love of his Grandparents, Aunts & Uncles and 9 cousins!

Alison has an older sister and brother. Alison’s sister has 5 children ranging from 14 to 2 years old that live very close by. Ryan gets so excited anytime he hears one of his cousins is coming over!

Andy has 4 siblings (an older sister and brother and a younger sister). His brother and younger sister each have 2 children that range in age from 7-4. Although they live a little further away in Orlando, FL the excitement is still the same when Ryan is seeing his cousins.

We recently moved into a very family oriented neighborhood. We fell in love with the community as soon as we saw it. In the summer we spend most days at the pool or splash pad with our neighborhood friends. Friday nights we can be found grabbing dinner from the food trucks and enjoying movie nights under the stars!

In Closing

It feels like thank you isn’t nearly enough for this incredibly tough decision you are making. Though we have not met, we are in awe of your courage and compassion. The gift of adoption is the ultimate act of profound love and selflessness. We promise that your baby will be loved, protected, celebrated and will be surrounded by family and friends who will always celebrate and love her unconditionally. We will always let her know how incredible you are in placing her needs above those of your own.

Forever Grateful, Andy and Alison
