We were both born and raised in Texas. We have known each other for 14 years, and been together for 9! We met in high school through church and quickly became good friends. After graduating, we lost touch for a few months, but quickly reconnected through a mutual friend. In 2009, we started dating right before Bryson joined the Air Force and Sara was in nursing school. We married in 2012 right after Sara graduated, and moved to North Carolina where Bryson was stationed. Although we loved North Carolina, after 6 years of service, we decided it was best for our family to separate from the military so we could move back home, start a family, and Bryson could finish his degree.
From the very start of our marriage, it was the desire of our hearts to start a family one day, we just weren't sure how exactly that would be. We have always known Sara may or may not be able to carry a child on her own. After months of research, talking to numerous doctors, and praying about the situation, we decided that was not the best option. Adoption is not foreign to our family as Bryson has several adopted family members. As Christians, we found comfort knowing God has adopted us as His own children, and as such we whole-heartedly embraced this adoption journey.
"We love because he first loved us." 1 John 4:19
Currently, Bryson is a senior in college pursuing his degree in Logistics and Supply Chain Management. He will graduate in December 2018 and plans to obtain a full time job in the area. Sara is a registered nurse in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) where she takes care of some of the smallest patients in the hospital. Depending on when we are matched, Sara is hopeful to go part time and be able to stay at home most days with our child. After 6 years of marriage, we are both more than ready (and super excited) to become parents!
