We are Lauren and Kyle. She is a school librarian and he is a welder, and we love each other like crazy. Adoption gave us hope after we lost eight babies and gave us the chance to have a family again. We adopted our daughter Henrietta, and through an open adoption, we proudly share with her, the heritage and love given to her from her birth family. We pray for the opportunity to give Henrietta a precious sibling. We will love to travel, and cuddle by the fireplace and read a good story together. We play with our puppies, chase them and laugh loudly. We value education, culture and God. Our hearts are praying for another chance to grow out family.
“Kyle is the hardest working person I know. He loves his family and is the type of Dad that gets down in the floor in the Barbie castle and plays with her. He can build anything he puts his mind too and has the greatest patience in the world and unwavering faith. When we were told we would never have children, he winked at me and said, “We can’t give up Darling.” He always helps anyone who asks, loves being outside and has a contagious laugh. He loves the Lord, riding bicycles and family game nights. He finds the positive in everything. He’s amazing.” ~Lauren

“Lauren is a lover of people. She loves to travel the world and meet people from all over. She instantly falls in love with their culture and is so empathetic. She loves learning and values education and open-mindedness. She gives her whole heart to people, always willing to help. She is the strongest woman I’ve ever met, and despite all our loss, she constantly stays positive. She’s took me to Italy and France and Poland, to Germany, and she got right in there, learning the languages. She an incredible mommy, teacher and is my whole world.” ~Kyle

We consider it our biggest blessing and an answered prayer to be parents to your child. We know this is not an easy decision. We have such a huge admiration for you and your endless selflessness in this journey. We don’t believe we could respect anyone more than we respect you. We are more than amazed at your strength through this process, and we are honored that you are taking the time to view our profile. Raising your child is a responsibility we would never take lightly, and not a day goes by we don’t cherish and value the decision you are making. Every day, we will remind your child how valued they are and how infinitely valued and cherished you are. This is the most treasurable gift in the world. We promise to love your child as deeply as we love each other. We promise to travel the globe, snuggle next to our fireplace together, and set out cookies for Santa’s reindeer. We promise to read every night together, to hold-hands as we pray, and help others when they need it. We promise to value every quality you pass to your child and love them endlessly. We promise to not take one second for granted. We know you have a difficult decision ahead, but we would like to thank you for considering us to start this journey with you and your baby.

Our Parenting Style
We adore positive parenting. We love to encourage and motivate and build a trusting relationship. Every child has their own specific needs and we agree that we meet them where they are at. We teach them respect and honesty, to value family and to stand up for those who can’t. We believe in community and hard work. We love the Lord with all our hearts. We believe in making good choices and learning from bad ones, and holding each other’s hand as we pray. We value culture and heritage, open-mindedness and education. We give our hearts to our family.
