Birth parent,

We have prayed and discussed adoption a lot over the last year.  We feel as if is it our calling and we are so excited you have chosen to read our profile.  We are sure this is a difficult decision and we pray God is with you every step of the way. Here is a little about us.

Don owns a trucking business and works from home. He is an outgoing, fun-loving man who can always make me laugh. I am so grateful he is in my life forever. Lauren is a Speech-Language Pathologist in a local school. Her passion for helping children is so amazing. She is kind, patient, and the prettiest woman inside and out that I have ever met.

We have two children, Brooke and Blake. Brooke is at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville in the nursing program. Blake is 14 and loves golf and video games. We have 2 small dogs (Riley and Daisy) and a cat (Izzy).

We are a close-knit family that continues to LOVE family oriented activities such as eating dinner together, watching movies as well as game nights.

As a family, we also love to be on the water. We enjoy the beach and being on our boat.  We try to travel as much as we can, too.

We cannot wait to meet with you and your precious baby girl to raise her as apart of our family. Our prayers are with you.


Lauren & Don

Dear Birth parent

I want to start by saying how appreciative I am that you are considering adoption.  I am sure this is difficult and it’s hard for you, but I am so thankful that you chose to give your baby life. Should we be chosen our plan is to raise her to know and love you as well. We want to continue your relationship with her should you desire, as we are open to your needs.

I know she will grow up in a loving home, and I plan to teach her all about fishing, wake boarding and how to drive a boat. Lauren will teach her how to be a lady and how to succeed in school. I know together we are going to raise her with good morals and values.

I work from home so I am flexible with staying at home. Lauren plans on staying home for a year and then we will find a daycare that meets our baby’s needs. I will be right down the road from possible daycares if anything should happen. We always eat dinner as a family, and then we will read to her every night before she goes to bed.

I want to thank you for your time and considering us for your prospective adoptive parents. We are so ready to become parents and look forward to more communication with you as you become comfortable.



Dear Birth parent,

I just want you to know how much I appreciate and how grateful I am for your choice to consider adoption. I am sure this is a hard, difficult decision, but I am so grateful you chose life for your baby. I want your baby to know who you are and the sacrifices you are making for them to have a better life.  I want you to have a relationship with your baby that you feel comfortable with.

My hopes for her are to grow up in a loving, caring atmosphere. We want this baby to experience the world and travel with us. We have so many people in our lives who are so ready to love her. I also want her to succeed in school, have manners, and love life to the fullest as we do and try to engrain in our children now.

When we are placed, I plan to stay home for a year in order to bond with her. Don works from home so his schedule is flexible, and he plans to be there with us. When I return to work, we plan to find a daycare that best meets the needs for our family. We have dinner every night together at our kitchen table. After dinner, I cannot wait for bedtime stories.  I want to provide her with a safe environment where she can grow as one of our own.

I am so thankful you chose our profile and are willing to give us a chance to possibly be your child’s adoptive parents. We cannot wait to build a relationship with you as you see fit.
