Hello!

Thank you for learning about our family.
We are excited to share parts of our lives with you, so you can see who we are as a family and what everyday life looks like for us. Like you, we have so many questions, concerns, thoughts and ideas. We hope throughout this process you feel comfort and peace in whatever decision you ultimately decide.

Our sincerest thoughts and prayers go out to you as you begin to explore the best options for you and your baby.

If you do choose to pursue adoption with us, our prayer is that our profile will calm your fears in knowing that your child will always be loved and cared for. While we don't know the emotions that adoption brings for you, we do know the pain and heartache that goes with loving a child who isn't in your arms everyday. This is our second journey through adoption, so we are familiar with the things you might be going through. Our sincerest thoughts and prayers go out to you as you begin to explore the best options for you and your baby. We know you are facing an impossible decision, and we pray that God provides you with the comfort and guidance you need throughout this process.
Our home is full of fun and laughter.

Our Story

We were introduced to each other at a baseball game by mutual friends. After many phone calls and conversations, we began a long distance relationship which included a 4-hour drive each way to see one another. After Joe relocated to my hometown, he proposed.

Being raised in a home where adoption is a regular conversation will help provide a unique sense of love and support to our son and future children as they grow.

A little over a year later, we married. Our marriage is full of fun, honesty, understanding, respect, forgiveness, friendship, and best of all: love. Everyday we say how much we love each other. Our home is full of fun and laughter. We truly enjoy every minute of this life that we spend together. We love spending time with Parker, going to the movies, being outdoors, taking walks with the dogs, riding around in the jeep, hunting, fishing, spending time with friends and family, cooking out on the weekends, playing softball, taking vacations, going to the lake, watching our favorite baseball and football teams, we even enjoy shopping together!

We adopted our son, Parker through Gladney in 2018. In addition to Parker, we have a family history of adoption on both sides of our families. Joe and his sister were both adopted, actually through Gladney, and my sister was adopted through private adoption. Being raised in a home where adoption is a regular conversation will help provide a unique sense of love and support to our son and future children as they grow. We also have several friends as part of our support network who have recently adopted. It's nice to have this little community around us.

Meet Casey (By Joe)

Casey is the most caring and thoughtful person I have ever met. She has a true mothering instinct because she is always there to help anyone who needs it. She is also a fantastic organizer; although I love to tease her about her organizational skills.

Casey is the most caring and thoughtful person I have ever met.

What she doesn't realize is that I truly admire her ability to tackle projects. She has helped many people on different occasions by lending a hand with organizing their home, life or schedule. One of my favorite things about Casey is that we always make little competitions out of everyday life situations and although she is really good, I know she lets me win sometimes. I truly cannot express how much I love this woman who is my very best friend. Watching her become a mom and take that role head on has been spectacular to watch. She is genuinely the most amazing person I know and the best mom around. Casey is also actively involved in Junior League were they seek to help and better the local community.
Joe is FUN!

Meet Joe (By Casey)

Joe is in truth, just a big kid! He is warm, kind, respectful- a true gentleman. He is everything you could ever want a man to be. He constantly knows how to make me laugh, in fact, it makes it impossible to stay mad at him for anything.

One of the things that I love about Joe is his ability to care for others. He does everything he can to make everyone around him happy while showing great compassion to their situations. Watching Joe become a father over the last year and a half has been so incredible. He is great with Parker and soaks in all the time he gets to spend with him. These two feed off each other and are two goofballs. It warms my heart to see them laugh and play and develop such a phenomenal father/son bond. I am grateful each day that I get to spend this life with this man. Joe works as a Financial Advisor in an office with his dad and one other broker. He loves his job! There is something about helping people set up and plan for their financial future that he excels at. Joe also serves on the board of several organizations in the community. These roles assist with helping the community become better.
