Landon and Mary

We began our little family in 2014, when we got married in a small central Texas town. We soon added to our number with a big, snuggly, gray tom cat named Gus and a sweet, playful German Shepherd named Remi. Before we got married we talked at length about our family “plans.” We both agreed that adoption was in our future. As all humans are created in God’s image, we believe it is our responsibility to value life, and one way of doing that in an impactful way is through adoption. In addition, we see adoption as a beautiful depiction of the way God has adopted us into his family. When we decided we wanted to begin having children, we learned that getting pregnant would be difficult and unlikely. We found this to be a clear sign that it was time to pursue adoption!

Landon is an Associate Pastor and Student Minister at a small church, where he has been for over 4 years. This ministry fits Landon perfectly, as he is patient, caring, intelligent, and is an incredible teacher. He is also attending seminary part time and will soon graduate with his Masters of Divinity. Though he may seem reserved and thoughtful most of the time, he has a secret goofy side that comes out around close friends! Mary is a part time Oncology Clinician, in other words, she is a registered nurse that administers chemotherapy. She also serves as the Nursery Coordinator at our church. Both positions exemplify her nurturing character. She is a very committed person, committed to working hard and committed to playing hard!
