Nicole + Lane
Our names are Lane and Nicole and we want to thank you for taking the time and consideration to learn about us and our family. This can't be easy for you, and we hope through your research of adoptive families you are able to find some peace.
In writing this profile we hope we are able to convey our true selves and what matters most to us. Putting our whole lives into this was difficult, and we want you to know that we will always be here to answer any questions you may have. We are open, loving and accepting people...and we hope you are able to feel that through this profile.

You are such an answered prayer for us! We don't know all of the circumstances that brought you to create an adoption plan for your son or daughter, but your selflessness is so cherished. We are humbled beyond measure to have you consider us as parents and know we will raise your child in a God-centered, loving family with SO much support!
Katie + Howard
Where do we start? Well, first, thank you for taking the time to read this letter.
Second, you should know we are incredibly ordinary people. We pay our taxes, watch movies, floss our teeth (occasionally) and grocery shop together. We listen to music. Get lost in thought. Do chores. We open doors for others, say "Please" and "Thank you", and enjoy a good laugh, especially when they are hard to come by.
Like we said, we're ordinary.
And like most people, we've experienced hardships. Ours of late have centered around our journey to parenthood. Which is why we are writing what you are now reading. And while our paths through life have differed, with yours undoubtedly filled with its own twists and turns, they've led us all to here and now. This moment where we're asking you to consider partnering with us in parenthood.
If you are open to it, we'd love for you to continue reading so you may get to know us better. We hope you'll find us to be the kind, good people our parents raised us to be. But more importantly, we hope you come away understanding that while we may be ordinary people, we're capable of and surrounded by extraordinary love. Love that your child will experience everyday.
Sincerely, Katie & Howard
Dear Expectant Parent,
Hello! I'm Garvin from Houston, Texas. From a young age I was drawn to adoption as a possibility for growing my family. I am at a point in my life where I feel the most secure, confident, and comfortable I've ever felt, and I am excited to share all of that with a child. In spending time with my 6-year-old nephew Johnny, who you will meet in the coming pages, I see the opportunities that parenthood offers and what I have to offer a child. I am fortunate to have an amazing extended family who are all very excited to welcome a new family member. I dream of getting to take my child to activities pursuing their passions and introducing them to the things I love. I cannot wait to teach my child to ride a bike. I yearn to create new traditions with my child and to grow as a family. Thank you for taking the time to get to know me and those I hold so dear. I look forward to the opportunity to get to know you as well.

Grant + Kimberly
We were both born and raised in Texas. We met 18 years ago, when we were in college. We started dating soon after we met and knew early on that we would end up together. We were married 3 years later. We both come from families that are very close, so we have always wanted kids. Family is extremely important to us. We adopted our first child, Ian through Gladney 3 years ago. He has been the greatest addition to our family and such a joy. We cannot believe what a blessing he is everyday. We are very thankful for the gift of adoption. After going through a forth painful miscarriage, we have decide that we will no longer try to have biological children. This was a difficult decision that we both have grieved but we are to thankful for the gift of adoption. We are excited to start the adoption process again. We are looking forward to seeing what special child God has planned for our family.

Dear Expectant Parent(s),
Our names are Jessica and Matthias, and we would like to start by recognizing how incredibly strong and courageous you are for considering adoption. We understand that this is likely not an easy time for you and we have been praying that you feel God's guidance and peace through this journey.
We'd also like to thank you for looking at our profile to learn a bit about us and our journey to become parents through adoption. We are excited about growing our family, not only by becoming parents but also by welcoming you and your loved ones, if that relationship is something you are open to and think is best for the child.
