Rad + Cam
Welcome to our profile! Our names are Cammile and Rad. First, we wanted to say thank you so much for taking the time to read and learn more about us. We are excited at the possibility of learning more about you someday as well. Please know that we understand that this is a very difficult decision for you and we don't take that lightly. We can't thank you enough for considering inviting a family into your life and your child's life through adoption. We pray that if you proceed with an adoption plan, you have support and love from those around you. Regardless of the choice you make, we think you are a strong and an amazing woman, and an amazing mom!
This is Our "Why"
We have chosen to pursue adoption because we feel that God has called us to grow our family in this way first. We are thrilled to become first time parents and we are very focused on parenting an adoptee well! We hope to one day have biological children as well. We have many friends and family that have adopted and we see how this process has positively impacted their lives. They also offer us great support and guidance as our journey unfolds.
Where It Began
We met through mutual friends while I (Cammile) was attending Texas A&M University. I loved that Rad was driven and focused and Rad loved that I was confident and adventurous.
We dated for a year before getting engaged. We then were engaged 18 months and were married in October of 2016. Being married to each other has been the biggest blessing in life. We love traveling and trying new things, but also love being home surrounded by friends and family.
I grew up with a twin sister and loved every minute of it. I spent the majority of my life in or around a pool. The sport of swimming has always been a very large part of my life, and it all started because my Dad was a swim coach. I graduated from high school and went on to attend Texas A&M University. I was fortunate enough to make 2 Olympic Teams in 2012 and 2016 and was elected a captain in 2016. I now own six of my own "learn to swim" schools in our area. I believe in sharing my knowledge of water safety and teaching everyone the life skill of swimming.

Something Silly About Me: My favorite food is wedding cake.
Something Serious About Me: I've wanted to be a mom as long as I can remember. I am so excited to welcome a little one into our family in the near future.
I grew up in a small Texas town where I played football, basketball and swam. After graduating, I attended Texas A&M University where I earned a Bachelor's degree in Management Information Systems (basically computer science for business). I've been in Information Technology (IT) my entire career and now serve as an IT executive for a national energy broker. Outside of work, I enjoy playing and watching sports including a passion for triathlons. In 2010, I was fortunate enough to compete in the Arizona Ironman, which stands as one of my most prized athletic achievements. My wife and I were married in 2016 and that stands as the best decision I could have ever made. She is truly my answered prayer and my rock.

Something Silly About Me: My parents had my first name, Michael, picked out, but they could not decide on my middle name. On the way to the hospital, they saw the name "Rad" on a license plate and knew that was it. From then on, I've always gone by my middle name, Rad. One question I always get from people in response to hearing my middle name is "are your parents hippies?" Funny enough, they are pretty strait-laced, but they do have good taste in names.
Our Happy Place
We love our community and neighborhood. We live next to a lake and enjoy spending time near the water. There are many parks nearby and lots of young children in our neighborhood. Our home is the space we use to come home and unwind after a long day, which we enjoy doing together.
Our Furry Friend
Jada Belle is our sweet kitty. We have had her since December of 2015 and she keeps us on our toes. We like to say that Jada is part dog, since she loves water and even comes when you call for her. She is so loving, great with kids and will be happy to snuggle with a new little one.
For Thanksgiving we always make sure to have a fried Turkey and spend time with family! Christmas Eve we usually spend with Rad's family playing card games, doing puzzles and spending time together. Denise, Rad's mom, cooks and we all enjoy laughing and listening to music together. On Easter, we all get together for a crawfish broil and spend the day with family and friends as we eat and play games together!
I have a twin sister and we are absolutely best friends! I truly believe being a twin is one of the biggest blessings God has given me. My sister, Ashley, teaches and coaches not far from us. Lisa, my mom, is a real estate agent and Eddie, my dad, is retired but runs the farm and still coaches swimming in his free time. My parents are very supportive and loving and are very excited to become grandparents. They even have their grandparents names picked out "Lola" is what my mom wants to be called and my dad wants to be called "Pawpaw".
I grew up in a family of four in a small town just outside of a large city in Texas. My parents were both teachers and my dad was a high school coach of basketball and football. My mom taught elementary school and my dad taught high school physics and chemistry. They provided a great life for my brother and I, giving us every opportunity possible and encouraging us to be our best. My brother has a masters in Museum Studies and is currently teaching high school history. He enjoys spending his free time recording music and customizing his motorcycle. They are all supportive and excited to see our family grow!
Thank you for working your way through our profile to learn so many things about us. We have more we wish to share, but that can come with time if you choose to pursue an adoption plan with us. We admire your courage in taking this step, because we know this has probably been a difficult journey for you and your family.
Our promise to you is that, whether you choose us or not, we will continue to think about you daily and pray God gives you strength and peace during this time. If you do choose us to parent your baby, we promise to continue to pray for you. We understand this adoption journey won't end for you, or any of us, on your baby's adoption day. We know this is a lifelong journey and a connection we will always share with you!
We promise to dedicate our lives to your child and have them grow up in a faith-based home where they will know how much God loves them! We promise to share the hopes and dreams you have for him/her with them and tell them all the amazing things we know to be true about you! We will speak of your often and allow your child to explore their heritage so they can always know where they came from! We also promise to allow him/her to pursue their aspirations in life, whatever that might be with our full support.
Thank you for considering us to join you on this lifelong journey.
