Douglas & Alyssa


We are Doug and Alyssa!

Thank you for taking the time to hear about our adventure
so far and learn more about us as prospective parents.

As many stories begin these days, our story started when we met on the dating app Coffee Meets Bagel in April of 2016. We had our first date a few weeks later, meeting at a local restaurant for dinner. Officially, we became a couple on July 4th, 2016. As Alyssa says, it was an easy way for Doug to always remember our anniversary!

We went on countless adventures side by side, including date nights at various restaurants, sharing good times with our family and friends, and traveling for some quality bonding time. In this time, our relationship blossomed, resulting in us purchasing our first home together in 2018 and rescuing our two dogs, Peach and Mason, soon after. On our three-year anniversary in 2019, we went on a weekend trip to Las Vegas, and while on a hike through Red Rock Canyon, Doug nervously proposed! The pandemic dashed a little bit of the original wedding plans, but we persevered and married in September of 2020.

We always knew we wanted a family, and as we are unable to have biological children, adoption has always been our first choice. We would love to welcome a child into our home
and start a family made through the love of adoption.
