ABOUT THE COUPLE

We know it sounds cliche, but we met online…by accident. We connected via social media, thinking that the person we connected with was someone else. When we started looking at each other’s pictures, we soon noticed that there had been a case of mistaken identity. After realizing we didn’t actually know each other, we had a mutual friend reach out to us individually to try and play matchmaker. We chatted back and forth for three weeks via email, talking about everything you can imagine – music, work, church, friends, food, and life. Our first conversation on the phone was incredible and lasted for several hours. After a month of speaking to each other, we decided to meet. Our first date was the day before Valentine’s Day and we both knew instantly that we were going to marry each other. From then on, we frequented new and unique restaurants, wandered through museums, hung out at the beach, and got to know each other’s friends and family. 13 months after our first date, we were married, and it has been the most incredible journey.

ABOUT Caleb

About Caleb (in Alaine’s words):
Caleb is truly one of a kind and there are so many things that I admire about him. He believes in the importance of hard work and that things in life shouldn’t be given out, except for gifts, of course – he’s wonderful at gift giving! He is a true leader in our home, and I love that he leads our family in prayer and teachings about Jesus. He is kind, compassionate, trustworthy, loyal, and one of the most generous people I know. He has a calmness about him and never seems to get stressed about anything. He loves Gad, his family, and loves people, regardless of their background. Caleb never meets a stranger and knows how to make people feel comfortable. He is musically talented and has the most amazing singing voice, can play the piano, and loves to serve people. He is also the best dad to our two kiddos. He supports our children in their endeavors, guides them through tough situations, listens to them and gives the best advice, reads Barbie books with our daughter and loves watching America’s Funniest Home Videos with our son. He will do anything for our kids and is excited to share all these things, and more, with our adopted child as well.

EXTENDED FAMILY

Caleb's grandfather pastored a church in his town for almost 50 years before he retired, so my sister and I grew up sleeping under the pews. My dad, Charles, has been in the restaurant industry for over 20 years and is currently a manager at a Cracker Barrel in our city. My mom, Laura, has been working for an insurance company for about 20 years as well. She and my dad both seem to know everyone that lives in their town. My sister, Hannah, is an amazing cook and an incredible worship leader at their church where her husband, Timothy, is the assistant pastor. They have three daughters named Addison, Eden, and Camilla.

EXTENDED FAMILY

Alaine's parents, Raul and Judy, have lived in the same home for the past thirty-seven years. That is the only home that we know - so many memories have been made there! My sister, Lauren, and her husband, Cody, live about five minutes from my parents with their children, Isabella and Jace. Lauren is a nurse practitioner in my dad's medical practice. I'm the only one in my family that decided to venture aware from the medical field. My dad is a collector of motorcycles and trikes and has five in his motorcycle shed that he rotates through often. As a hobby, my mom took up stained glass and now attends class weekly and seems to start a new glass project every few months.

ABOUT OUR HOME

We live in the great state of Texas in a beautiful three-bedroom, three-bathroom townhome, and have access to multiple neighborhood parks within a 5-minute radius of our home. We love to be outside with our kids, which tends to involve going on long walks with Willa, going to the park, having a bat gammon competition (usually boys vs. girls. LOL), drawing sidewalk chalk designs, planting new plants and flowers, and bike riding. We are near nature preserves, walking trails, restaurants, museums, movie theaters, the zoo, and within a twenty-minute drive of practically anything our city has to offer. We also enjoy spending time inside our home, making beautiful memories with our family. Whether playing games, having a movie night, or throwing a large gathering with both extended families, our home is full of laughter and love. We are truly blessed!

The elementary school that our children attend represents over fifty countries, and we are thankful we live in a diverse city with various cultures that our children get to experience daily. We feel it is so important that our children are exposed to and learn to appreciate ways of life and values that are perhaps different than their own.

Caleb and Alaine have a hybrid work schedule where we work from both the office and at home, and it has opened up so many beautiful opportunities for our family. We also both have very flexible jobs that give 8 weeks paid time off for adoption! Once we head back to work, baby will be attending a Montessori school in our incredible community. We truly love our home and our community and can't wait to welcome another child into it!
