Landon and Mary

We began our little family in 2014, when we got married in a small central Texas town. 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. Our family has already grown twice biologically with our son Emmett who passed away in 2018, and our daughter Lottie who was born in 2019. We are excited now to grow again through adoption. Landon is an Associate Pastor and Student Minister at a small church, where he has been for over 7 years. This ministry fits Landon perfectly, as he is patient, caring, intelligent, and is an incredible teacher. 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 volunteers with her local Hope Mommies chapter, a ministry that cares for women who have experienced pregnancy or infant loss. Both positions exemplify her nurturing character. She is a very committed person, committed to working hard and committed to playing hard!
