Hello! Thank you for taking a closer look at our profile. We want you to know that we have been praying for you as you are planning out the future for you and your child. And if it is the right decision for you, we hope to help you feel comfortable and confident in choosing us to care for, unconditionally love, and raise your child as our own. Lauren and I met in 2009 when she was on a mission trip in England teaching children through puppetry and the arts. I had four years left for my Master's Degree so we committed to a long distance relationship and relied on Skype to connect us. I proposed to Lauren in Scotland and we got married before I started my final year at school. We have been married for seven wonderful years. We have two gentle dogs. Every other year we travel to England to visit my family and they come out here to visit us. Lauren's family lives nearby so we see them often. We are known by our friends as being a compassionate and fun-loving couple who is committed to each other, our family, friends, and church. Five years into our marriage we were diagnosed as having 'unexplained infertility.' But our desire to become parents has never wavered. We know God has a plan for our lives, even when we don't know what it is yet. We pray for God's will and provision in your life, your child's life, and our lives.
