dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

We would like you to know we are so very grateful for you and what you’re considering doing for us. We can’t imagine how difficult all of this is for you.

We have always wanted a big family, and possibly because of you, we may actually be getting that! If you bless us with this gift, your child will be loved and cared for, get the best education, travel, and, most of all, be adored and loved forever! Thank you so much for your consideration!

We have always wanted a big family, and possibly because of you, we may actually be getting that!

About Us

We met at work in Illinois. If you know anything about Illinois, it’s cold, so we moved to Georgia when we started trying to have children. We also lived in North Carolina, where we had our first baby; however, he was born too soon and passed away shortly after being born. In 2014 we had our second child; he’s now seven years old. In our family, we love all people, races, and abilities equally! Alyson is a healthcare worker, and Kristy is a stay-at-home parent, khich means Kristy takes care of our son, cooks, cleans, and does the running around. Alyson’s job is monitoring brain and spine surgeries. Together, we have a wonderful and loving family.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a beautiful, new, four-bedroom three-and-half-bathroom home, and the basement is filled with lots of toys. We live in a great location. Our neighborhood has many amenities: a great pool with a splash pad, a clubhouse, lakes for kayaking and fishing, hiking paths for beautiful walks with great views of the Rockies (especially at sunset), a nature center where kids can go explore and learn about wildlife, and community gardens. We have top-rated schools down the street, and our son is currently enrolled in a charter school. We have one furry baby in the house. He’s quite the show stopper with his light blue eyes. He is the gentlest, sweetest dog we could have asked for. He is so good to our son, and they play together.

Our Extended Family

We both come from big families. Alyson has a smaller immediate family with three brothers, while Kristy is one of six kids. Alyson has a large extended family, being one of twelve cousins just on her mom’s side. Kristy has a smaller extended family with three cousins on each side.

Most of our family lives back in Illinois. We love our visits. We spend some holidays with Kristy’s older brother and his kids, and some holidays are spent cooking at home. At other times, we go see a holiday movie after we eat. Alyson’s father passed away about three years ago and her oldest brother passed away about two months ago, but her mother makes regular trips to Colorado and stays for two weeks every few months.

What Led Us To Adoption

Our journey began many years ago when we decided to have children. We decided Alyson would carry a child for us, but we ended up losing our beautiful son, who was born prematurely. A few years later, we were beyond blessed to be able to carry another beautiful boy. Kristy’s parents were foster parents, and growing up, she had many foster brothers and sisters; her parents ended up adopting two children to add to their family. We have always wanted more children, but after many miscarriages and losses, our hearts can’t handle another loss. We know the path meant for us is adoption.
