Adoption in Our Lives

Family Selfie

For us, adoption has never been an unknown like it may be to many others. We both have several cousins that were adopted and Krystal also has an aunt that placed a baby for adoption many years ago. When we announced to our families our plans to adopt a few years ago, everyone was so excited! Adoption has changed the lives of all of our family and friends.

Everly

We adopted our daughter, Everly, in March of 2017. The whole experience was amazing and beautiful. We did not just get a daughter through adoption, we got a whole birth family who we love dearly and communicate with regularly. Everly has brought so much joy to our family it is indescribable! She is so loved by us, her brothers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, birth family and everyone.

Adoption is not just limited to the family who wishes to adopt, in our experience, Everly's adoption has affected so many outside of our family. It is incredible to see the bond that her adoption has created between so many families, especially our own.

Our Professional Lives

We Love Disney!

Krystal is blessed to have a job where she can work from home. She helps families plan Disney vacations and this can be done on her own time schedule. If the kids are sick, or they have activities going on at school Krystal can be there. During the summer, or school breaks the kids do not have to go to daycare because of the flexibility of her job. She believes this is the best job in the world because it does not interfere with her family and she can help other families create magical memories with their children.

Marc Coaching

Marc has been in hospital management his entire career and is currently a director in an organization that he absolutely loves. His career and the company he works for has allowed him flexibility to coach over 1000 children in our community over the past 10 years, including our own. Marc does this as a volunteer because he truly believes in giving those children more than just exposure to a sport, they often learn more about how to treat others off the field.

    Our House and Neighborhood

    Our Home

    Our community is one that is extremely family friendly in Louisiana. We are in a suburb of a larger city and have all the conveniences of a city close, while enjoying the peaceful living in a country setting. Our schools are some of the best in the state, which is one of the reasons why we chose to live here. We enjoy being a part of tons of activities in our community. Sporting events, parades, concerts, shows...we truly get to enjoy tons of things that help us make wonderful memories. Our neighborhood is a very safe one with lots of families with children. On every pretty day, which are numerous, families are outdoors playing.

    Our home is on a cul-de-sac which is highly convenient. Our home is a 5 bedroom, 3 and 1/2 bath home that is 1 1/2 stories. The 1/2 story above our garage we have turned into a game and media room where we enjoy movies, games and playing with toys. It is probably our most favorite room in the house. We also have a pool where we are very diligent about ensuring water safety. In fact, two of our children could swim before they could even walk!

    We have several parks, splash pads and sporting complexes within just a 5 minute drive and we visit those often as well. We are excited to share our home and lives with another child.

    Our Extended Families

    Family Reunion

    Most of our extended families live approximately one hour away which allows us to enjoy so many things together. We are an active family in that we enjoy playing sports like basketball, baseball, soccer and golf in our community and we also enjoy movies and games at home on days where we can't go outside.

    Family Wedding

    We also enjoy getting together with our extended family on many weekends and on almost every holiday. We often get to travel on vacations together. We enjoy trips to the beach, Disney World and cruises. We have a large extended family and it is always interesting! Even if it is just an afternoon of hanging out together, it always leads to lots of laughter and wonderful memories created. We LOVE spending time with our families.

    We cannot wait to tell our family that they will be grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins again. Our family is so excited to welcome another child into it. When we adopted our daughter they were just as excited as us. They have been an integral part of this entire process and are so full of love and kindness.

    From Us to You

    Hi! We are Marc and Krystal! Thank you for taking the time to learn about our family. First of all we want to let you know we admire you for the decision you have made to consider adoption. You are a wonderful, strong and brave person. We cannot imagine what you are going through, but know that we are praying for you every step of the way. We hope this letter gives you a glimpse into our lives and helps to answer any questions you may have about us.

    We grew up in the same small town and had several mutual friends, but did not start dating until Marc was in college and Krystal was a senior in high school. We have been married for nineteen years and have a wonderful marriage. We have four beautiful children: Chandler, Aiden, Ethan and Everly. Chandler is fourteen years old and is our quiet, sensitive and tenderhearted child. He is so protective of his siblings. Aiden is twelve years old and is our sweet, humorous and caring child. Ethan is nine years old, he loves babies and is the best big brother. Everly, is our little princess. She is sweet, sassy and a girly girl. She has her brothers wrapped around her cute little fingers.

    We cannot wait to welcome another child into our home and hearts. We dream of rocking them to sleep, singing lullabies, and just loving on this amazing blessing. Your child will grow up in a home filled with love, laughter and fun. We can already picture the first smiles, giggles and first steps. Your child will be cherished from day one and we cannot wait to share these milestones with you through letters, pictures, and visits. We are open to however open or closed you wish this adoption to be. We have a great relationship with our daughter's birth family, and look forward to one with you also if this is your wish.

    Vacations are a major part of our lives. We believe it is important to unplug regularly from our everyday life and just have time to focus on us as a family. Because of Krystal's job we are frequently able to visit Walt Disney World, and experience many different cultures on Disney Cruise Line. Honestly, it does not matter where we go, just as long as we are together having fun as a family. We cannot wait to share these experiences with another child. Our desire is for our kids to be able to fondly look back on their childhood and have wonderful memories of adventures filled with fun times, love and laughter. We want them to understand the importance of family, so this will be passed down to their children and future generations.

    When people think of us we want two key points to stand out to them. First of all our faith. Our faith is our foundation and we strive to live our lives by showing God's love to others. Second is the love we have for our family. Our children are the center of our world and we love them unconditionally. It would be the most amazing blessing to be able to share this unconditional love with your child. We know that you already have this unconditional love for your child and your baby will always know that your love is the reason we are a family.

    From our hearts,

    Marc & Krystal
