We were both born and raised in Arkansas. We met in the seventh grade and quickly became best friends. We didn't decide to date until several years later but have been inseparable ever since. We knew we wanted to get married but decided to wait until we finished college. Drew proposed in February of 2014, about 8 years after we began dating, and we got married in June of 2015. We knew before we got married that adoption would be the way we would choose to grow our family. We both have large families and can't wait to have a family of our own.
Drew has a very large family. He has 3 brothers, Wesley, Garrett, and Ethan. Wesley is married to Elizabeth and Garrett is married to Sierra. All of Drew's immediate family lives within 2 hours of us. We enjoy spending weekends and holidays together. We like to gather around a table and play board games and just enjoy each others company. In his extended family he has over twenty cousins ranging from 30 years old to newborn babies.
Delaney has a large family, though not as large as Drew! She has 3 brothers and a sister that are all younger. Her oldest brother Blake is married to Hannah. She has gotten a lot of practice with little ones in recent years because she has a two year old brother. She enjoys spending time with all of her family especially her mom. Her family is close and celebrates birthdays and most holidays together. They all live within 6 hours of each other.
We have two dogs, Lola and Sylar. Lola is our 3 year old Shih Tzu. Sylar is our 1 year old Australian Shepherd. Both dogs have grown up around children and can't wait to have a little one to play with.
We purchased our home in early 2015. We have enjoyed fixing it up and making it our own. We have 3 bedrooms and 1 and a half bathrooms. We are on a corner lot and have a large fenced in backyard. We love having our family and friends over for cookouts on the back patio, as well as dinners and games around our large dining room table.
