We are Lauren and Lauren, a fun loving, ice cream eating, Cleveland sports fanatic couple. We met through a mutual friend 11 years ago, and have been growing, learning, loving one another and traveling ever since. One year into our relationship, we began the most exciting journey we have ever travelled. We adopted our daughter Madison in 2012. Madison is 12 years old and loves softball, dance, and her puppies Frank and Max. Together we are ready to love, support, and empower another child.
HI! I am Mama Kiwi, also known as Lauren M. I was born and raised in Northeast Ohio. I went to college in Southern Ohio where I met 'my person' through a mutual friend. I am a Regional Manager at a large snack food company, which is a major hit with all of Madi's friends. In my free time, I love to coach Madi's softball team, travel, watch sports, go to concerts and go to the movies. I also enjoy spending time as a family, especially every Sunday for dinner. Growing our family is something the three of us have dreamed about for years now, and I cannot wait to share our adventures and unconditional love with another sweet little soul.
HI! I am Mama Bear, also known as Lauren V. I am originally from Pennsylvania, and moved to Ohio for graduate school in 2009, where I met the love of my life. I am a university soccer coach by day and a mom all the time. I love to play outside, bake, travel, go to concerts, and fix things. I have a big supportive family who values time together, playing board games and going to the movies. Adding another child to our family is something my heart has been set on for quite some time. I just love to see the world through the innocence and love of a child. I believe their hugs and kisses are the cure to all life's problems.
