Our Story

We are a family of 4 from south Texas, my husband has been in the Air Force for 7 years & this is our second duty station together. We have been married for 3 1/2 years and have two beautiful little girls. He just completed a one year unaccompanied tour in South Korea while i resided in Texas near our families because i was 9 months pregnant when he left. He got back in August and we immediately moved to JBER and we have loved every second of being back together again.

Number of Household Members: 4

Duty Station: JBER


Our Family’s Wish

Family Wish #1 : a used car/truck would be incredibly helpful with us having only one car, it would be easier for me to get a job, and be able to do things with the girls while my husband is at work and we’re cooped up in the house during winter
Family Wish #2: a fishing/outdoor trip somewhere in Alaska to enjoy time together in the outdoors

Our 3 year old daughter loves to play dress up in princess dresses & wears a size 3t

Our 1 year old loves Ms Rachel on youtube & the movie Elemental and she wears a size 12-18 m or 18 months

A Wish for Our Daughters: I would really love an indoor play gym, or even outdoor play area/toys for them to let out their zoomies during the cold winter days

A Wish for my Husband: While my husband was in South Korea, he couldn’t do much because our expenses were always ran thin because of the birth of our daughter and payments on our home in Texas so i would really love for him to get the opportunity to go on a solo trip fishing or hunting somewhere in Alaska because he absolutely loves it and has been looking forward to doing it since we knew we were coming to Alaska. Thanks for taking the time to read our wishes & Happy Holidays
