We are so excited to introduce you to this adoring home-study approved (and certified to adopt) Purl Family from Arizona: Tanner, Ashely and their sweet daughters Eden and Shiloh! Tanner and Ashley met in their 8th grade drama class, falling in love with each other at 18 years young and were married right out of college. Ashely stays at home to care for their precious daughters, who are just 10 months apart! This special family is longing to add another miracle to their tribe through adoption.
Tanner and Ashley are both mental health specialists and strive to create a safe and loving home for their kids, where they are fully seen and known. They love to travel and can’t wait to bring their kids on adventures. This family also loves to eat and can be found holding a snack at any hour of the day. They are a family that throws epic dance parties, have enormous appetites and thrive with an abundant affection for one another! As Tanner puts it, Ashley is full of compassion and encouragement. She comforts the heart of everyone she interacts with. Ashley is an amazing role model for their girls. In her words, Tanner is a one of a kind father and always puts his family first. He’s incredibly smart and hilarious, and makes their lives so much fun! Eden is a very funny little girl, making the whole family laugh all day long. She loves babies, as she always has a baby doll in her hands, and can’t wait to be a big sister again! Shiloh is talkative and smart, always trying to keep up with her big sis. She’s fearless! Her favorite thing is going down slides and swinging. She’s fun, loving and the sass their family needed. They don’t want adoption to simply be about gaining a cherished member of their family, it’s also about gaining extended family because of the gift of adoption. That’s why they cling to the truth that love makes a family, not DNA.
