Austin and Laura

After more than a decade of marriage, our love and friendship continues to grow. We make it a big point to nurture our relationship with God and with each other. We love to have fun and we don’t take ourselves too seriously! Our daughter will be in Kindergarten soon, and loves to hear her adoption story over and over. And over. The idea of becoming a big sister is thrilling to her, and we long for the day we get love and care for and raise our new child.

We Hope to Adopt A Child Who Is...

We know from experience that our family and friends are fully supportive of adoption, and we are blessed to be surrounded by so much love and openness. Much of Laura’s extended family was built through adoption, and being able to raise our children with that common bond is a priceless gift.
