"Erica and I started as co-workers, but we quickly became friends thanks to our mutual love for college football, true crime podcasts and Chick-Fil-A lunches. She's always the first person to volunteer to help you with a project or plan a party, and she puts her heart into everything that she does. I've been so moved by Erica and John's journey to becoming parents and they've handled each and every step of this process with grace, strength and a great sense of humor. Their lives have already been changed for the better by opening their hearts and home to adoption, and I can't wait to meet the next member of their family!"

"John and Erica’s love and respect for each other is evident each and every time we are with them. They are an outgoing couple that is able to laugh at each other as well as laugh at themselves. They support each other and our family when we are going through hard times and are some of the first people to reach out and offer help to their friends and family when help is needed. Helping their siblings move, making dinner for sick friends or sending flowers to those who have had surgery are some examples of their caring and willingness to give of themselves. Seeing John and Erica interact with their nieces and friends’ babies shows me that they will be such loving, caring and fun parents. Our family can’t wait until Erica and John become parents and we can’t wait to welcome and spoil our new grandchild. "

"My sweet daughter, Erica and her witty and cheerleader-in-chief husband, John are truly loving and caring people. They have built a beautiful, joyful life together, working hard, and focusing on their families, friends and each other. They are always supportive of each other and anyone else that needs help, understanding or comforting. With these two, what you see is what you get. They are true to themselves and true to their word...the best mom and dad waiting to happen."
"When John & Erica say they can't make it to your party, you reschedule your party because it won't be the same without them. With their quick wit and non-stop banter, they always have us in stitches. Their energy is contagious, whether they're telling you about the most recent documentary they've watched, or they're debating each other on which Halloween candy is the worst. They are a delight to be around, and we count ourselves lucky to call them friends."
"Erica has been my very best friend for almost 15 years now. She is one of the kindest, smartest, and genuine people I've ever met. She also found the perfect match in John. Between the two of them, you never stop laughing and always have a good time. These two will make the absolute best parents, and I can't wait for their family to expand. "
