dear expectant mother

We are so excited you are taking the time to read our profile. We cannot imagine the decision you are facing right now and can only say thank you for considering us to love and care for your precious baby.

We have so much love to give and only wish for the opportunity to give it. A good home, good health, and happiness are the most important things to us. We will teach our child about love, respect, hard work, and fun! Education is of the utmost importance to us; we will provide them with any assistance they may need and look forward to watching them learn through exploration and experiences. Should you choose us to raise your child, you can be assured they will have a happy, fulfilling life, and the world will be theirs to explore. You can also be assured the gift you give will never be taken for granted. We promise they will know you made the most difficult decision and how much you love them. We are excited to share updates on their growth and well being through photos of them playing with our dogs, enjoying time kayaking with their cousins, making pancakes and forts on cold winter nights, and so many other experiences we look forward to doing as a family.

Our thoughts are with you, whatever decision you make. This is your decision, and it must be right for YOU. We are more than happy to share any additional information you would like. Thank you for taking a peek into our lives.

About Us

October 2021 will make ten years for us together as a couple, and we were married on our five-year anniversary in front of our family and friends. We both grew up in Louisiana and remain here today. Emily is an outpatient Physical Therapist Assistant and loves working with pediatric and geriatric patients. She can make anyone’s day just by smiling or giving bear hugs and enjoys sharing goofy pick-up lines and jokes whenever possible. Crystal is a junior high STEM teacher who loves coaching robotics and track and field. She is beautiful inside and out and loves to do fun science experiments with her nephew and niece. Together we enjoy kayaking, taking our three dogs to the park, quiet nights in with a movie and popcorn, and watching Saints games surrounded by friends.

Our Home & Pets

Living on a quiet street, we are excited to fill our large, fenced-in backyard with toys and to watch our child run and play with Hershey, our chocolate Lab, while Nova, our weimaraner, and Bailey, our elderly rescue, watch the excitement. We live in a small town north of New Orleans in one of the best school districts in Louisiana. Our three-bedroom, two-bathroom home is cozy with hand-carved wooden plaques and crafts hanging from the walls, many personally created by Emily. Living right off of the bike trail, we enjoy several nearby parks and recreational activities, such as the children’s museum, alligator farm, and rivers.

Our Extended Family

We are so lucky to have family, both relatives and our chosen family, to support us. Summers spent kayaking with their uncle and cousins, watching the Christmas Eve bonfires on the levee with grandparents, fishing for catfish, spending time in the mountains and at the beach, or simply making forts and pancake shapes on lazy Sundays…these are just a few of the many experiences we know our child will enjoy with our friends and family. Each and every one of them knows how much love we have to give, and they share in that feeling and excitement for us and our future child.

What Led Us To Adoption

Growing up with three brothers, Crystal knew a family would be in her future. Emily, an only child, always planned on adopting when she was ready to start a family. After Crystal tried several fertility treatments with no success, it was clear adoption was what was meant to be for us. With the support of our family and friends, several who have adopted in the past or were adopted themselves, we are excited to begin this journey to open our hearts and home.
