HOGAN and MITCH for Drew and Alyssa — TX
Drew and Alyssa met in the summer of 2007, when Alyssa volunteered at Drew’s workplace. They started dating soon after and have been together ever since. Even before their marriage in early 2011, they had already discussed how adoption might play into their future. Alyssa spent the summer after her graduation from high school living and working in an orphanage in Nicaragua, and knew from that experience that God would one day make adoption part of her story. Drew agreed that he was open to adoption, but neither one of them could have prepared for where this journey would take them.
In November of 2012, Alyssa and Drew traveled on their first adoption trip. Meeting their “Little Man” absolutely changed their lives! Before they could complete the adoption however, Little Man’s country banned all adoptions to the US. The Pittman’s don’t know how long it will be until they can go back, but they will be overjoyed when the time comes. They think about their sweet son every day.
Over the past couple months, they felt God telling them that some of their other children were ready to come home. And boy were they surprised when they felt their hearts being pulled toward TWO sweet older boys. Alyssa and Drew are excited that God has called them to start their family in such a unique way, and they can’t wait to see where the rest of their journey leads. They are very close with their families, and everyone is anxious to meet the two newest members!
