A Letter from George & Elizabeth

Hi there!

We are George and Elizabeth, and we are so excited to share our lives with you!

Family is everything to us. We currently have three beautiful girls, and strongly feel called to the adoption journey. We are open to welcoming any child of any race into our home, from newborn to one year old. We promise that we will wholeheartedly love and provide this little boy or girl with a secure and blessed life filled with love, laughter, and joy.

Our Story

We are a fun, loving, & active family! We first met on an online dating site and spent the first part of our relationship long-distance. We had instant chemistry and knew we were supposed to be together for life, and were married in 2014.

Throughout our marriage, we have miscarried twice due to a condition that the doctor told us would be cured with significant weight loss. We made the commitment to get healthy for our future children, and together have lost a total of 300 pounds! Since our journey to better health, we have been blessed to have our three beautiful girls – ages 4, 3, and 1 years old.

Several friends of ours have gone through their own adoption journey, and through watching their stories unfold, we have come to see firsthand the incredible joy and beauty that adoption brings. We prayed about it for several years, and strongly feel that God is calling us to open our hearts and home to another little boy or girl through adoption and welcome home our next child!

We love the outdoors, swing dancing, traveling, cooking together, & singing. Our faith has founded who we are today. We are extremely active in our church community and everyone around us truly believes that love is what makes a family!

 

About George (by Elizabeth)

George is my rock. He’s steady, genuine, honest, and humble. He consistently blows me away by his selflessness and his ability to put his family’s needs before his own.

George enjoys crossword puzzles, traveling, and trying new foods. Above all he loves football; especially the Arkansas Razorbacks. I hear “Wooooo Pig Sooie” in our home on a VERY regular basis- Haha! He’s a goofy guy, always doing something quirky to make me laugh. On a daily basis, he’ll break out into song, dance, or a funny impression. He has the ability to talk and get along with anyone and is an excellent father to our girls.  He’s such an incredible role model and has so much to offer his children.

About Elizabeth (by George)

Elizabeth is an incredibly thoughtful, caring person who always thinks of others in the most positive of light. She’s very personable and is excellent at building genuine relationships with others. She is extremely dependable and very talented, and it blows me away that whatever she puts her mind to, she succeeds.

Elizabeth is very nurturing and loves playing music, taking pictures and singing – really, anything artsy! It’s such a gift that she has these artistic talents to be able to pass down and teach our children. She is the biggest blessing God has given me, both as my wife, best friend and the mother of my children. I am really looking forward to seeing her motherly love blossom even more and know that she is excited to share her love of artistic expression with our children.

Our Family & Children

Our family is very unique and beautifully diverse! George’s parents immigrated from West Africa, & they strongly believe “it takes a village” to raise a family. We have an incredible support system throughout both of our families, and it’s such a blessing to be able to come together and celebrate our cultures, diversity, & traditions together as one!

Our daughters are the sweetest little girls! They currently enjoy playing hide and seek, singing songs together, and tickle fights. They already have grown such a nurturing love, and get so excited when they see a baby or even while playing with their dolls; lots of hugs and kisses are given! We know that they will be loving big sisters to their future little brother or sister!

 

Our Home in Illinois

We recently purchased our dream home, complete with 5 acres, a fenced in yard, and lots of room to play! We enjoy spending a lot of time in and around our home during the week, making it a fun and exciting environment for our children.

On a weekly basis, we take the girls to the park up the street, play with chalk and bubbles on our driveway, and play tag in the yard. It’s so fun having the yard space to run and play with our children! We do a lot of activities around our house that are focused on teaching them while having fun at the same time!

Our Promise

We promise to protect and provide your child with a stable and safe home with lots of laughter, unconditional love, and a strong Christian upbringing. We believe in celebrating our diversity and will provide every opportunity to guide and support them to pursue their dreams throughout life.

We’re excited and open to keeping in contact with you at your comfort level through letters, emails, photographs, and visits.

Our Children

We currently have three little girls, and they are our world. We spend a lot of our time currently singing songs like "Baby Shark," coloring with chalk, reading books, traveling, and playing as a family at the park! It's so beautiful watching them grow up together and become best friends since they are close in age. We are very excited for them to have another best friend for life, and they are SUPER excited, too! They keep telling us that they can't wait to have another little brother or sister, and it warms our heart. Siblings are such a blessing to one another.
