Meet Eric & Ashley D.

Adoptive family

Dear Birthparents,

Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. We realize this has to be one of the biggest decisions you’ve ever had to make. Even though we aren’t in your shoes, please know that you have our support.

Our Christian home is full of love and laughter — and we want to share that with another child. With two girls already in the family, this child will start life with big sisters who will give extra snuggles and be best friends to grow up with. A new addition to our family will be welcomed wholeheartedly by our entire family. We look forward to meeting you, and to getting to know more about you and the hopes and dreams you have for your child.

Ashley works as an Account Executive. She graduated with a Master’s Degree in Business Administration. Ashley enjoys traveling (especially to the beach!), reading, yard-saling, and cheering on Eva and Elliana at their sporting events. Holidays and birthdays were always special events in her family, so it’s no surprise that event planning is one of her favorite hobbies. Ashley can’t wait to include another child in to these fun and exciting activities!

Eric has an Electro-Mechanical Engineering Degree and works as an engineer. He is quite the handyman around the house and the go-to person to fix things. Eric likes to go fishing, work with his 3D printer, cook on the grill, and play guitar. He enjoys sharing his joy for music with the girls and all three play band. Eric comes from a large family and is looking forward to adding to his own.

Elliana is a spunky, full of life three-year-old. She attends Preschool where she loves to make new friends. She currently plays soccer and enjoys gymnastics class. Her caring nature will help with she gets to welcome a new sibling into the family.

Eva is a very sweet and kind-hearted six-year-old. Eva attends Kindergarten and enjoys Bible time and recess. The time outside of school is spent in playing tennis, kicking a soccer ball, or ballet dancing. Eva is excited for another sister or brother!

Family Traditions One of our family traditions is to take a week in the summer and go on a trip, and in 2019, that trip was to Maui! Showing the girls new places and new experiences helps them grow and appreciate how much the world has to offer.

Another family tradition close to our hearts is participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Ashley has participated since she was a young girl, and today this is an event for the whole family. Working as a team, we raise money for Alzheimer’s research every year.

Family Life When we aren’t at home watching the big game or playing boardgames, the four of us like to take day trips and plan adventures. Outings to the zoo, to the aquarium, or to a baseball game is on our list of favorite things to do. Christian values are important to us. We are instilling them in the girls through our Church and their school. We look forward to continuing our adventures and exploring new places!

Thank you for getting to know a little about us and we hope you find comfort in that. We recognize the value of an open adoption and understand the importance of showing a child where he or she comes from. We look forward to meeting you.

With Love,
Ashley, Eric, Eva, and Elliana
