We are so grateful to have this opportunity!

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us! We have been married 8 years and love doing life together! We don’t have children (yet!), but it’s always been our dream to be able to share the joys and blessings of life with a child. We have multiple friends and family members who have adopted or were adopted themselves. Seeing how adoption blessed their lives makes us very excited to build our family through adoption.

We are so excited and blessed to be on this journey! We would cherish the opportunity to provide your little one with a supportive, safe, and loving home. We will do everything we can to encourage, teach, and nurture them so that they will thrive and succeed!

About Bill, written by Laura:

To know Bill is to love him! Not only is Bill the wisest person I have ever met, he also thinks the best of everyone, is kind, caring and an excellent listener. He loves wholeheartedly, has a great sense of humor, and cares about others. Bill is the best husband, he is a wonderful uncle and I am confident that he will be an incredible dad!

Bill is a natural at caring for kids, and my heart is warmed every time I see his patient, kind and loving interactions with a child. He is so handy and can fix pretty much anything! I know he is looking forward to sharing these skills with our future child.

About Laura, written by Bill:

Laura is the sweetest, kindest, and most encouraging person I know. Laura’s compassionate and generous heart is constantly leading her to drop her own plans in order to do something kind for others, whether making a meal for a family welcoming a newborn, babysitting for friends or visiting a hurting friend in the hospital.

Laura delights in scrapbooking and card making. She also loves to bake and is frequently making pies, cakes, and other delicious things.

Laura is passionate about music and has been singing and playing the piano since she was a child. Laura cannot wait to share her love for music!

Laura loves children! She is going to be amazing at caring for a child and giving them the love, compassion, and tenderness they deserve.

OUR PETS

MEET OUR PETS

Our dog, Louie, is a lovable 8.5 year old English Springer Spaniel. He loves to run in our yard, go for walks, swim in our neighbor’s pond, and cuddle on the couch. He also knows a bunch of tricks that he loves to show off.

We also have two pampered outdoor kitties named Herbie and Harriet. We rescued them as kittens and they are a lot of fun!

Finally, we have 16 chickens that we have raised from 1 day old little chicks. They are the friendliest chickens and will come running to greet us when we get home each day, as they are free-range. They are very gentle and love to eat out of our hands.

OUR HOME & COMMUNITY

Our house is located on 10 acres in the country and is only 20 minutes from the nearest city. It is the best of both worlds as it is surrounded by fields and forests, but also close to museums, shopping centers, and parks.

Our property is “park-like” as we have many trees, a beautiful view, and privacy. In the warmer months, we enjoy going on walks through the fields, swimming in our pool, taking our dog, Louie, swimming in our neighbors’ pond, picking berries, and gardening. We have a splash park and several great playgrounds near our home that we cannot wait to explore with our child! Our house is situated on top of a hill and is great for sledding in the winter and watching the fireworks from all around the area during our annual 4th of July party!

THANK YOU

FOR CONSIDERING US

Every day we feel blessed that God has shown us his kindness and chosen to love and have a relationship with two imperfect people like us. We are both very active in our non-denominational Christian church. We love teaching Sunday school & co-leading the youth group. In the summer, we volunteer at a kids’ camp which we love! Bill is also on the leadership team and Laura plays piano and sings on the music team as well as helps with the women’s ministry.

Thank you so much for taking the time to learn a bit more about us! If we are the family that you choose, please know that we will always speak of you highly. We value people and relationships immensely and are eager to support whatever level of connection that you are looking to have with your child.

We would love the opportunity to share letters, photos, and updates throughout the child’s life as they grow, if that is something that you are open to.

Bill and Laura
