Hi from Florida!
Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about us. Our lives are centered around our faith and we feel confident that the Lord has called us to welcome our first child through adoption. We love spending time with family & friends, kayaking, going to the beach, traveling, and relaxing at home. We are thrilled to share all of this and more with our child! We are open to photos, letters, and planned visits at the level that you are most comfortable with.
We first met in 2014 at a mutual friend’s wedding. About a year into dating, Regis was diagnosed with cancer. He has now been cancer-free for over 5 years and is officially a survivor! We know if we could get through that together, that we can do anything! After we got married we were met with fertility issues and knew God had a different plan for our family. We are overjoyed at the opportunity to become first-time parents through adoption!
In our free time, we love spending time with friends & family, traveling the USA as well as around the world, beach days, kayaking, playing pickleball, and serving at our church. When we travel, we love to visit historical sites, state/national parks, and eat at the local restaurants. We look forward to sharing our traveling adventures and passion for family with our child!
Regis is a wonderful man who finds the good in everything around him. His job as Director of Children’s Ministries at our church gives him the opportunity to interact with kids each week- and he loves it. In his free time, Regis enjoys camping, hiking, kayaking, and anything outdoors. One prominent character trait of Regis’ that stands out to me the most is his joyful attitude. He finds joy in the Lord, rarely complains, encourages others, and is always there to support his family and friends. Regis is going to make a wonderful dad! He is really looking forward to family camping trips with our child and teaching them about God’s love.
Ashlee is friendly, kind, and can make friends with anyone she speaks to. I believe her love for people comes from her love for God. In her free time, Ashlee enjoys baking fresh new recipes, enjoying days at the beach, and snuggling in for a movie night. She works as an elementary teacher and her years of working as a teacher have given her hands-on experience on how to care for a wide range of children with differing personalities and abilities. Ashlee is going to make a fantastic mom! She is really looking forward to reading bedtime stories, sharing holiday traditions, and helping our child with schoolwork to help them succeed!
Our Home in Florida
We live in a 2 bed/2 bath townhouse in a safe, family-friendly community. We have owned our home for five years. The street is lined with oak trees and we have a golf-course view. There is a beautiful park nearby and we are only 15 minutes away from our church/work. We are also only 20 minutes from some of Florida’s most beautiful beaches. During the Christmas season, there is a neighborhood holiday party and a lot of families decorate their homes with lights! In the summer, 4th of July fireworks are set off at the park and can be seen perfectly from our community pool.
Family is very important to us and we love getting together with them whenever able. Regis’ parents live only 10 minutes away and Ashlee’s family lives just an easy two-hour drive away (perfect for weekend visits). In the summer, we enjoy trips to the family cabin in the Smoky Mountains and in the winter, trips to Disney World.
Our families are both thrilled about our adoption!
On Ashlee’s side of the family, everyone is so excited to welcome the first grandchild! While Regis’ side is thrilled to welcome another little one to the family! There are already little cousins to play with (our sweet 2-year-old nephew and newborn niece)!
We promise to love your child unconditionally and always speak openly about you. We are open to letters, pictures, and planned visits at the level you are most comfortable with. We promise to raise your child up in a Christ-centered home. We will seek to give your child wonderful memories through traveling, time spent with friends and family, and extracurricular activities that interest him or her. We will put your child’s safety and wellbeing above our own and make sure he or she receives a good education. We promise to pray for you and your child regularly. Thank you for taking the time to read through our profile. We look forward to learning about you and your child!

More About Our Family
Our faith in God is the most important aspect of our life. Regis is finishing up a seminary to become a pastor. We know that our life will revolve around ministry and we couldn't be more excited about that. Currently, Regis serves as the Director of Children's Ministries at our church and Ashlee works at the church's Christian school. We love serving and working together. We attend church every Sunday and this is something we prioritize. Regis also runs the Awana children's program on Wednesday evenings. We look forward to sharing all of this with our child and getting him or her involved in all the wonderful ministries our church offers.
We love to travel and explore new places! Some of the places we have been together are Jamaica, Bahamas, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Washington D.C. We also have family in California, so we try to visit there as often as we can. For quicker trips, we really enjoy road tripping around Florida. When we travel, we love to visit historical sites, state/national parks, and eat at the local restaurants. We look forward to sharing our traveling adventures with our child!
Our church/school community is a very important part of our life! With Regis working at the church and Ashlee teaching at the school, we spend a lot of time there. We love that our church and school community feel like our second family. We know the church will offer our child lots of opportunities to learn about God's love and make sweet friends on Sunday mornings, AWANA Wednesday nights, and Vacation Bible School in the summertime! Our award-winning school will give our child an amazing education taught from a Christian worldview and provide opportunities for extra-curricular activities that interest him or her. Above all, our tight-knit school and church community will provide our child with so much love and support as he or she grows!
Thank you for learning a little about us! We so look forward to welcoming our first child home through adoption and sharing with him/her our passion for life, family, and fun. We are open to letters, photos, and planned visits at the level that you are most comfortable with. Please know that you and your child are in our prayers daily and we look forward to getting to know you.
