About Us

Our Story

We are Annie and Drew and we are so excited to get to know you. We met in 2014 and became fast, close friends, but it was several years before we decided we were going to take on life together. We love spending time with our families, doing DIY projects around the house, and taking night drives on the old dirt roads listening to the sounds of the woods. You'd never believe how many stars you can see out there!

Our Home

Our house is in a very rural part of South Carolina, but only about 20 minutes from the city, so we have access to both worlds. We live in a ranch-style home that backs up to the woods. There are bunnies and raccoons that come through the yard daily to say hello, and Annie works hard to make the yard as bird friendly as possible too. We have feeders outside the kitchen and living room windows so we can watch the birds throughout the day. Occasionally we see a fox go by as well, and during the cooler months there are so many deer. It's a magical thing for kids to get to experience, looking out into their own yard and seeing wildlife.

Annie

adoptive family photo - Annie Annie was born in Louisiana and raised in Georgia with a love of food, music, and the written word which lead her to becoming an award winning journalist.

She thinks the most valuable thing you can do for a child is to make them feel heard, validated and understood. Having been adopted herself at 16-months-old, adoption has always been a strong calling on Annie's heart since she was a little girl. "I like to think that having been adopted has given me a deeper appreciation for family, no matter what shape or size it comes in, so long as it's built on a foundation of profound love and acceptance."

Truly a mama at her core, she's always trying to take care of the people around her and make them feel loved and appreciated. "One of my favorite things is a rainy Sunday morning with cinnamon rolls for breakfast and then having a family game day with my kiddos."

Drew describes her as the glue that holds it all together, and her kids know that she is always a safe place to land. "The greatest lesson I can pass on to my children is 'Lead with love, and I will always be proud of you.'"

Drew

adoptive family photo - Drew Drew was born and raised in rural South Carolina. He values hard work and integrity, but above all else, family. He has a tough exterior but would give the shirt off his back for a stranger in need, and move mountains for the people he loves. He communicates his love through food so there's always something delicious cooking on the stove or outside on the grill. Drew has a passion for nature and an innate ability to create or build just about anything. The most important thing to him is to be an engaged and involved father. So, he's always looking for new ways to connect with the kids on their level, in ways that interest them. Always learning, growing, teaching, doing.
