Such a pure, sweet and honest love from one being to another. I'm this little guy's "Sissy" and he's my "lil' french fry". He looked at me this weekend and said "Hey, Sissy, I like you. I just love you, Sissy." He is such a blessing to everyone who knows and loves him. When I start thinking this road we're on to a child of our own is too hard, all I have to do is look at this little face and hear his words or feel his big hug. I want that! There is so much love in this little guy's heart and he's SO not afraid to show it to you. He loves with all his heart. I hope, I pray, that God has a little one waiting for us and we will continue the search. In the meantime, this is the sweet little boy God has given us to love and be loved by and we are blessed. Please continue to keep us in your prayers.

Adoption is a gift, but it is one you work for, you shed many tears for while you wait, your heart longs and yerns for a baby, and you wait some more. If only it were as easy as getting in line, placing your order and walking away with a wonderful little miracle. There are encouraging days, days of tears, days of anger, days full of hopelessness, days filled with numbness and days when you just can't imagine getting out of bed and starting all over again not knowing. I encourage each of you to be an encouragement to your friends and loved ones going through an adoption. We all need a smiling warm face to help us make it through. If you see a tear in our eye, don't avoid us, give us a hug. If we sound a little down when you talk to us, make us get out of the house or away from the job and enjoy a girl's day out. Some days we want or need to wallow and want to be left alone, but some days we want to know that someone out there cares about us and what we are going through. We are hopeful and are excited about the experience of adoption, but it is a trying time and it takes lots of love and support to make it through until we get that sweet baby in our arms.
Even though I didn't believe some days, you believed for me,

No matter the ups and downs, we are FULL of hope. We WILL keep on keeping on, persevering until we bring our baby home. We've started planning our baby’s nursery, not too girly, not rough and tough boyish, but a super cute and bright neutral nursery that can be glammed up with ribbons and bows or can have a few boyish charms added in if need be. We've decided to paint the nursery apple green and white. Exciting news...here is a picture of our crib set that arrived today!!!! Today of all days. We can’t wait to get the painting underway and find the perfect crib!

Thank you for considering our family in the adoption of your child. This has to be the hardest and most important decision you will ever have to make. We hope that after viewing our story you will see that we are a family overflowing with love. We welcome any questions you may have about us, our home, and our lives.
We have been happily married for fourteen years. We share our home with our spoiled rotten dog, Mystic’s Princess Layla (she doesn’t know she’s a dog). We live in a family-oriented community with nearby parks and a wonderful backyard to run and play in. We have many friends and family members with children just waiting for us to add one to the fun family activities.
Blake is thirty-seven years old and has recently embarked on a path as a full-time college student, majoring in Forensic Science, and is looking forward to a rewarding and exciting career as a real life “CSI”. He has a great sense of humor and a kind, caring heart. Blake is an avid Dallas Cowboy fan, loves football in general and enjoys watching basketball, baseball, college softball and golf, and he still enjoys listening to music and playing video games to unwind.
Deborah is thirty-six years old, and enjoys a career as an office manager and legal assistant with a small law firm in Sherman. She also likes to let her hair down and “bling” it up as a Premier Designs jewelry consultant. Deborah loves to make people laugh, has a smile the size of Texas, and enjoys doing for others. Her hobbies include cooking, decorating her home and shopping with her dearest friend, her mother.
As a family, we love to laugh and spend time with each other. We enjoy spending time with our family and friends, cooking out, playing games, or just watching movies. The baby we adopt will have loving grandparents, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins. There are also plenty of friends ready to love the baby we adopt. Our new child will grow up surrounded by the love and support that is so important to any child.
We feel very fortunate to be able to build our family through adoption. We cannot wait to share our love, kindness, patience, nurturing, opportunities, and education with our first child. To us, this is what parenting and family is all about.
The special person who blesses us with such a miraculous gift will always hold a special place in our hearts and prayers. Forever, that person will remain a part of “our” child and us. The child will always know that he or she has birthparents that love and care for them and will never forget them.
