We want you to know that we are truly in awe of your strength, selflessness, and bravery as you travel through this journey of difficult decisions.We are honored that you are considering giving us the best gift we could ever receive!
We are Shane and Neely of Texas! Our love story began at the High School we are both so fortunate to teach at! We knew very quickly that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together! We have spent the last 3 years loving each other hard, traveling to amazing places, and dreaming of starting a family. You can often find us playing outside with our two precious dogs, spending time with family, hiking at our local trails, or playing board games in our cozy home. We live in an amazing family friendly community with awesome schools, parks, and events. Our greatest hope is to raise a family in a home full of love, lots of fun, and many adventures! Adoption has such a huge place in our hearts and we feel so blessed to build our family this way! We have been dreaming and praying for the day that we are chosen to be parents. There is nothing more exciting to us than the thought of welcoming a baby into our home!

Our Family And Home
Neely's Family-My family is super close and we love spending time with each other! We are all very involved in each others lives and are so fortunate to live in such a close proximity to each other! Some of our favorite things to do together are annual beach vacations, celebrating holidays, and checking out awesome restaurants. Any baby will be beyond lucky to have them as grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins! They are all anxiously awaiting the newest addition to our family!
Shane's Family-I have an amazing family! My father, a professor, instilled a love of learning, discussion, and play in my brothers and I. We were never without my Mother's unwavering love and support. Both created strong values that have bonded us deeply. My family lives in some awesome places ranging from Seattle, to Boise, to St. Louis, to Florida and everywhere in between. We look forward to many family trips across the U.S.! My parents are thrilled to be grandparents, and my brothers will make the coolest uncles!
Simba and Bear- We also have two precious pups, Simba and Bear! They are just the sweetest and bring so much joy to our lives. They will be the best big brothers!
Home-Home is truly one of our favorite places to be! We love the warmth and coziness of our house. We are located in a quiet, family friendly neighborhood with two parks and a splash pad within walking distance. We feel so fortunate to live in a neighborhood that also feeds into the school we teach at! We can't wait to spend our summers at home together as a family making lots of wonderful memories!
Thank you for taking the time to view our profile! Our promise to you is to love your child unconditionally and raise them to be kind, strong, and loving. Their life will be filled with laughter, adventures, and a whole lot of love! We promise to always celebrate and honor you for your selflessness and strength. We will continue to pray for you as you as you travel on this journey.
Lots of love,
Shane and Neely
