Shane and Alisha

July 22, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
I grew up with Shane's family.  They are wonderful, he is wonderful, and they would make fabulous parents.  Feel free to share this post and get the word out there that Shane and Alisha are waiting for their child!
 
The poem accompanying this post is by Teri Harrison. (Altered a little bit to apply better to their current situation.)
 
Here is a little something they wrote for you to read about them.
 
"When Alisha and I were first married, we received some marriage advice that stuck with us. We were told to do everything we could to "keep each others' love buckets full," meaning we should do everything we can to love and serve each other with all our hearts throughout our marriage. We worked hard to do just that. Then, after trying for a year to get pregnant, we found out we couldn't have kids on our own. It was the hardest thing we have experienced, but we braved it together. Time helped us heal, and after a lot of consideration, we decided to apply to adopt. And just a few months ago, we were approved! We created a profile on adoption.com(http://adoption.com/profiles/Gallaghersadopt-5762) and have been trying to spread the word. 
 
A few weeks after we were approved, Brianne (who I grew up with) asked if she could take pictures to help our adoption profile stand out. We said YES, and a few days before our schedule shoot, we found a literal love bucket. We brought it along to the lavender farms, and now we have photos that capture exactly what we want expectant birth parents to see. We can't wait to find our little one to fill our love bucket."
 
 
 
 
 
“Longing for a child to love,
We wish upon the stars above.

In our hearts we always knew,
A part of us is meant for you.

I think how happy we will be,

Once we adopt you, making us a family

we dream of all the joy you’ll bring,

Imagining even the littlest things.
The way it will feel to hold you tight,

And tuck you in every night.

The drawings on the refrigerator door,

And childhood toys across the floor,
The favorite stories read again and again, 

And hours of games with make-believe friends.
The day you take our outstretched hands,

A journey will end, but our lives more complete.
 

thinking of memorizing your sweet face, 

We dream of our first embrace.
  We promise to give you a happy home,

And a loving family all your own.

A house you'll make more complete,

With laughter, smiles and tiny feet.

A parent is one who guides the way,
Know I will be there everyday.
You'll rest easy as each night you sleep,
A lifetime of love will be yours to keep. Longing for a child to love,
We wish upon the stars above.
In our hearts we always knew...
A part of us belongs to you.
