Stephen & Allison



We are honored that you would take the time to get to know us! We can’t imagine the weight of the journey you are on. Facing the unknown can be scary, and we admire your courage as you navigate many different decisions for you and your child. Know that you are loved and prayed for. No matter what you decide, God is working all things together for His unique purpose for your life and that of your child.

For the past 4 years, we have been foster parents to 8 wonderful, unique children. We loved being parents and providing a safe, nurturing environment where each child could grow and develop. Through this journey, we knew we wanted to open our home to children who need a forever family. After our last foster placement, we shifted our focus to adoption.

It is such a privilege to cross paths with you. If you choose to place your child with us, we will do everything we can to raise him or her in a God-honoring home. We will talk about you so that your baby knows who you are and how selfless you are! We will read books, go on adventures, eat way too much ice cream, and do everything we can to help them achieve their full potential. Most importantly, your child will be loved well and loved forever.

No matter what you decide, we are praying for you and your baby to have comfort, joy, health, and peace. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us.

About Us:

We met on eHarmony in 2018, and we quickly decided to meet in person. Our first date was in Fredericksburg, VA, and we had such a good time that the date lasted 8 hours. We knew then that we would get married, and we only dated for 4.5 months before we were married in February 2019! We honeymooned in Hawaii and can’t wait to go back some day with our children. Adoption has been on our hearts for many years. Allison has wanted to adopt since she was a little girl, and Stephen felt the desire to adopt through our time as foster parents. We have friends and family that are supportive of our decision to adopt and can’t wait to love the children in our home!

We are very involved in our church. We both help with the children’s program and host a small group in our home. The most important thing to us is to raise our children to know the Lord and have a personal relationship with Him.

10 Fun Facts:

  1. We love spending time with friends and family!
  2. We enjoy working on different projects around our house. For Stephen this is typically a renovation project. For Allison, this is cooking or gardening.
  3. We have two miniature Australian Shepherds and one cat. One day we hope to have chickens and maybe even a dairy cow.
  4. We are involved in our church and spend most Sundays and Wednesdays with our church family.
  5. We try to go on vacation once a year, either to the beach or the mountains. One of our favorite spots is Pigeon Forge, TN. We also like to visit different National Parks.
  6. We enjoy spending time outside. We like to bike around our neighborhood and play with our dogs in the yard.
  7. We try to eat healthy and find ways to live a more balanced, holistic lifestyle.
  8. Allison plans on staying home full time with our children and homeschooling.
  9. We have names picked out but would love to hear from you as well!
  10. We are open to an open adoption, if this is something you are looking for. We’d love to talk more about it with you.
