Aaron & Allison
Thank you for taking the time to read our profile. We are so grateful and we know this is not an easy decision. We have longed to be parents for many years and are excited about growing our family through adoption. We have so much love to give and we will provide a safe and happy home. We hope that you will consider us and we look forward to this journey.
Our Favorite Vacation Spot
We have been on many vacations over the ten years we have known each other. We love to travel together and with family. We have gone to Hawaii, Yellowstone, Greece and many other places, but our favorite vacation spot is going to an amusement park. We are active people and enjoy the thrill of roller coasters. We go all day and ride everything. We have been to Universal Studios, several different six flags, Silver Dollar City, and Disney World. Disney World is our favorite. Allison loves Disney and grew up watching all the movies and still knows most of the songs. She enjoys the atmosphere of the park and the shops. Aaron is a big Star Wars fans so it is awesome when we can step into that world to ride, shop, and eat at the Star Wars attractions there. We can't wait to have a little one join us on our travels and we are looking forward to incorporating them into meeting Disney characters, running on the beach, and hiking/camping.
Fun Facts About Us:
Education We Will Provide
Allison is an elementary teacher and we both have masters degrees. Education is something that is very important to us. Allison has taught every grade from kindergarten through 4th. She has a plan and will start teaching the child letters and numbers very early. Allison loves teaching and it excites her to be able to take the books from her class or fun activities that she does in class and use them to help a child at home. Aaron has so many life skills and can't wait to teach them to a child. Aaron loves working on cars, building projects, and technology. He has so much to teach a child, like how to change the oil or the brake pads on a car, how to use the hundreds of tools we have for wood projects, or how to build and assemble a desk top computer. He is a jack of many trades and a great teacher for many life skills. Being in the military, Aaron also has benefits that will allow a child to get a full ride to college if that is something they want to pursue.
Our House and Neighborhood
Being in the military we move around often and the saying is, "Home is where the Army sends you." Right now we live in a new-construction neighborhood in Arkansas. We just got our house and we don't plan on selling when the Army moves us. Whenever we are done with the military we will move back to the same house because Arkansas is our home and it's within hours of our family. The house is a four bed, three bath, and our favorite room is the game room. We spend a lot of time playing games there and our dogs enjoy it because there is a big window that lets them see the yard and the neighborhood. Our house has a large back yard. You can see pastures with cows from the back deck and it's a beautiful view when the sun sets. We are lucky because it seems like we live in the country because of all the pastures, but we are also right next to several cities. We are within a few miles of many stores, parks, and restaurants. So we have the best of both worlds. The neighborhood is growing. A pool is being put in, new families are moving in, and there are children playing all around. When the time comes to move again, we will be closer to a military base and those always have amenities, such as pools, parks, and kid programs.
Our Extended Families
We both come from close families and both of our families are excited about our adoption plan. Our parents don't live close by but they visit often. We love getting together playing board games, cards, and traveling. This child will be the first grandchild on both sides of the family, so they are sure to be spoiled rotten!
Aaron is an only child. Aaron's dad is an area clinic manager for a prosthetics company and his mom stays at home.
Allison has two brothers, a sister, and a sister-in-law. Allison is the oldest sibling. Allison's dad is a veterinarian and her mom is a pharmacist.
A big pastime for both sides of the family is going to the lake. With Aaron's family we take the sailboat out and sail all over. Allison's family has a cabin near the lake and a speed boat. There we do more surfing, skiing, and wake boarding. Spending time at the lake is the best!
We also love getting together for vacations and holidays. We have gone with family to California, sailing trips, snow skiing trips, Hawaii, and many more places. Our family cannot wait to be a part of a child's life and look forward to lots of love, hugs, and kisses!
From Us to You
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. We can't imagine how difficult of a decision this must be for you. We hope that learning more about us will give you peace of mind as you consider adoption for your child.
We met in college at a Halloween party in 2010, however we didn't start dating until a few months later. We met through mutual friends and we bonded over our nerdy interests, especially our Star Wars knowledge, sports, and outdoor activities. We dated for three years and were married in 2014.
We have been in a loving and supporting relationship for almost a decade now. We talked about plans for a family very early on and tried to have a biological child soon after we got married but we are unable to. This was a difficult time for us, but after self-reflection and figuring out what we believe is important in our lives we have put our faith in God. We know he has a plan for us and our journey to expand our family. We are ready and excited to grow our family through adoption.
Currently, Aaron works as an engineer officer in the United States Army. He has been working for the army since he graduated college in 2011. Being in the military we move around a lot but it's great to have so many friends that live all over the country, especially when it comes time to take trips to visit them. Allison is an elementary teacher and has taught every grade from kindergarten through fourth. She loves working with young children. The amount of creativity and curiosity they show is amazing. With moving around she has not always been able to keep her job but she keeps busy when that happens by subbing and teaching online. She will put her skills to use and be a stay at home mom and teach a child until it is time for the child to go to kindergarten.
We have a normal life with our two sweet dogs. We enjoy spending time together and with our extended family whether its going sailing or playing games with Allison's siblings. We are close with our families and always enjoy getting together for vacations, holidays, and lake time. We are excited to have a child join our family and sometime down the road they will have a sibling and many cousins to enjoy growing up with.
We believe adoption is wonderful way to expand a family and it is important to know where you come from. We look forward to sharing this journey with you because a child's story can't be complete without you. We are happy to send emails, pictures, and letters with keepsakes that mark milestones in your child's life. We are also open to making arrangements for visits when the time is right. We are eager to know you and want to work with you to maintain a healthy relationship. We know this is the best thing for a child. We will make sure that your child knows how much they are loved by us and by you.
We appreciate your time and consideration. Our hearts and wishes go out to you as you continue to travel through this journey. Thank you again for taking the time to learn about us.
