Choose a Family


Allison and Eric

We are Eric, Allison and Tanner living in San Diego, CA with our four legged  family members Mojo the Mastiff & Copper the Retriever. Thank you for taking the time to review our profile. First and foremost we want to commend you on your decision to place your child for adoption. What an amazing and thoughtful thing you are doing and we respect you and the thought process you had to go through to get here.  We do not take that lightly. We hope that after hearing  about us you will see it as a fit to have your baby join our family.

We met just over 10 years ago while we were both living in Orange County, CA.  We met online having both just moved to the area in 2006/07.  Technology definitely helped bring us together with the questions and answers because you can’t judge a book by its cover. Eric looked super cute with a great smile but wasn’t Allison’s typical “type”. Eric loved Allison’s smile however she wasn’t his “type”. Little did we know what our types were.  We chatted on the phone many times for hours and finally decided to meet. During all of our communication Allison’s dog got loose from her yard, her sister had come to visit, she had 2 work trips back-to-back and managed to lose her cell phones on each trip (which meant that she couldn’t return his phone calls).  Eric had the opportunity to walk away while he was ahead but thankfully it has made our story.

Over the last 10 years we have traveled to Colombia, Mexico, Singapore, Bali and all over the states visiting friends and family.  Although we have had a lot of fun together we have always dreamed of having a large family. When we learned that we would have difficulty getting pregnant on our own we began alternative approaches always with adoption on our minds. We know how much of a miracle each pregnancy is to begin with and then to have the baby and watch him or her grow and develop has been one of the most amazing things for both of us.  Our son (who is a biological miracle himself) asks daily about a little brother or sister and we can’t wait to finally be able to answer his prayers along with ours.  We have an amazing little family through a lot of FAITH and PRAYER. With that comes an amazing network of friends and family to help us out when we are in need.
