Bryson + Sara
Hi there, we are Bryson and Sara! In our house we laugh, we love deeply, and we extend endless grace. We became first-time parents through adoption and respect and understand the adoption triad. While we haven't met you yet, we admire your strength and the courage that is within you. We hope that you have peace and feel loved and supported throughout your journey. As you explore our profile, we hope you are able to get a sense of who we are as a family and what we value. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We look forward to developing a friendship with you!
We were both born and raised in Texas. We have known each other since we were 14, and we have been together for 11 years! We met in high school through church and quickly became good friends.
In 2009, we started dating right as Bryson joined the Air Force. Our relationship was mostly long distance, but we made it work! Three years later, we got married in 2012. Sara had just graduated from nursing school. We moved to North Carolina where Bryson was stationed and we enjoyed living there! Being able to travel and being on our own helped us build a strong foundation for our marriage. 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 to Texas, start a family, and Bryson could finish his degree.
Being married has been so much fun! We have traveled, been able to purchase our first home, raise our two crazy pups, and become first time parents! We've learned life is tough and full of ups and downs, but it's so much better when you have your best friend by your side.
Why We're Adopting
From the start of our marriage, it was the desire of our hearts to start a family. We weren't sure how exactly that would be, but we were open to many different options. We have always known Sara may or may not be able to carry a child. After talking to numerous doctors and praying about the situation, we decided to pursue adoption.
In December of 2018, Micah -- our son, was placed in our arms. He is such a precious little boy and words cannot express how thankful we are to be parents. We have an open relationship with his birth mom and we consider her part of our family. She is the most hard-working, kindest, selfless person we know. We send her updates on a regular basis and are able to have visits with her. We don't feel like our family is complete yet and would love for Micah to have a brother or sister!
About Sara (according to Bryson)
Sara is my best friend! She is kindhearted and compassionate towards those around her and it never ceases to amaze me how far she will go to help someone else in need. It takes a special kind of person to take care of babies in the NICU, and I admire her for staying strong in the difficult situations she faces. God has definitely called her to be a nurse because she always takes the best care of Micah and I when we aren't feeling well.
Her ability to set and achieve goals has always encouraged me to be more driven and reminds me to keep pursuing what I want to do. She is always smiling and can make me laugh even on my hardest days. She has a heart for the Lord, which encourages me in my own walk with God. She was made to be a mom! She and Micah have such a sweet relationship and she is incredibly patient with him. She is always engaged with him and listening to his needs. They love to play hide and seek together and run around the house chasing one another.
About Bryson (according to Sara)
How did I get so blessed to be married to such a sweet man?! Bryson is hands down not only the best husband, but the best human being I know. He is very thoughtful and selfless. He is empathetic towards those around him and he goes out of his way to make others feel included and valued. He is grounded in his faith and trusts the Lord in all circumstances. He's light-hearted, reminding me to never take life too seriously and that laughter can cure most bad days. When life throws a curve-ball, he's there with encouraging, uplifting support. He is my biggest fan, always reassuring me I can do "it", whatever that may be. He always reminds me that life is too short to be stressed out or worried. I just can't imagine where I'd be without him.
It has been so neat to watch Bryson become a dad! He is definitely the fun one around our house. He is the one who takes a "time-out" in the hectic, chaotic moments to have fun and be silly. He's excited to teach our kids how to ride a bike, introduce them to video games, and see what kind of sports they might like! Growing up, he was super close to his grandparents, so I know it's something that he wants for our kids as well.
Our sweet Micah
Our lives were forever changed in 2018 when we became first-time parents through adoption to our sweet son Micah. It's so neat to see God's hand was over his adoption and the timing of everything; one Saturday Bryson graduated from college and the following Saturday he became a dad!
Micah is an affectionate, outgoing, social little boy with a HUGE personality! He loves to dance, sit in our laps while we read to him, and try to make everyone around him smile and laugh. He is such a JOY and we consider him our biggest blessing thus far!
We live in a 4 bedroom, two-story home in a well established neighborhood. We have plenty of room in our backyard where Ellie and Gaston (our pups) love to run and play fetch. There are plenty of young families with children who live around us too! We purposefully live in a diverse community for Micah. In the evenings, you are bound to catch at least two or three neighbors hanging out in their driveway while the kids play! Within a few miles of our home we have a beautiful recreation center that has hiking and biking trails, soccer fields and even has a beach where they show movies on the water!
Ellie is our 5 year old Goldendoodle who is the sweetest natured dog we've ever met. She is obsessed with her ball and looks forward to eating Micah's leftovers at mealtime. She is so good with Micah and lets him climb all over her. Gaston is our 7 year old Yorkie who is the original first addition to our family; he is such a goober! He loves to sleep, eat greenies, and tear up tissues.
Lastly, we promise these things to you
We want you to know that if you choose us to parent your baby, we are committed to providing your child with a loving, stable, nurturing, and family-centered home. We promise to raise your child spending time with their grandparents. We promise to read to them at bedtime and cheer them on at sporting events. We promise to get them help if they struggle in school and support them anyway we can. We promise to advocate for them and be their biggest fan!
We promise to teach them to love the Lord and pray for them daily. We promise to raise them in their culture, educate ourselves and those around us and never stop learning. We promise to be consistent in our relationship with you. May you never doubt the compassion we have for you as a mother. Your child will be raised knowing where he or she came from and the sacrifice you have made. You will always be an integral part of our lives and we plan to raise your child with understanding and appreciation for you.
This child will be loved by us, our family and friends, and will know the love you have for him or her. Thank you for getting to know us! We are praying for you!
