Unfailing, Unending Love... A home filled with faith, family, food and fun!

We try to make our home welcoming for all. This often results in gathering friends over for meals, or church groups for bible studies, as well as play-dates for the kids. We cherish holidays & special occasions when visiting with grandparents & extended family. We have a big dining table with room for more place settings; the bunk-bed & kids rooms have room for more... we bought our house with a big family in mind! ...and look forward to filling it with more kids!

Who We Are

At a West Coast Swing dance, Mike & Lauren met in 2010. Over bible study, they got to know one another. And, like a match made in heaven, they knew very quickly after meeting they wanted to wed, because of matching faith & family values. A vision for a big family of both adopted & biological children was talked about early in their dating season.


We have been given unfailing, never ending, unconditional love from God. "In love he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons (& daughters] through Jesus Christ" (Ephesians 1:4b-5). We want so much to share that love with as many children as possible!

"My eyes were opened to adoption in middle school, when my Aunt & Uncle adopted their first girl. They worked against so many odds in order to bring their precious child home. And despite 'failing to thrive' in the orphanage she HAS thrived once given a family & unconditional love." ~ Lauren​

"My Dad was adopted as a young child. His birth family chose a closed adoption, so he wasn't able to meet his birth mother or learn much about his family history until he was an adult." ~ Lauren​​

We hope for an open adoption so our child can learn about his/her unique background, and family health history; as well as have healthy communication between his/her birth family. We can talk through the various degrees of openness prior to the adoptions finalization.

Adoption Diary

Our Adoption Story - part 1

Our Adoption Story started back in 2015, when the desire to adopt began to weigh heavily on Lauren’s heart as we considered growing our family. It took many hard months of prayer to be confirmed and united about the whys, hows, and when of adoption. We clung to Psalm 119: 105 “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.”  And in September 2016, we were finally able to start the pre-certification process!
After a Fundraiser Adoption- Garage Sale, meetings with agencies & attorneys, a Homestudy, background checks, and reference letters - and lots of baby-steps in between, we were officially Pre-Certified in February 2017!
Now we are in the equally hard “Waiting” season. While our hearts long for our future baby(s), we can not loose sight of the two precious ones we have been entrusted with. We cherish every moment with Charlotte and Boaz. And, continue to pray & prepare for our ‘on-the-way’ children. Jeremiah 29:11 has been a huge comfort: “For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.” While it offers hope for the plans God is work on our behalf, we also claim it for our future baby(s), that He is work out good plans for them right now. Last, but not least, we claim it for the beautiful Mommy out there somewhere maybe needing hope for her future, and not knowing what plans lay ahead. We pray we can offer her comfort when we meet her.

Family Visit & Cherished Memories at Grandparent’s Home

We had the chance to visit Lauren’s family in VA recently. Going home to her Grandparent’s is extra special they have lived there as long as she can remember. This visit also included extended family who also came from out of town. Lauren’s adopted cousins (on right), now young adults, with her Grandmother between them; (on left) her Aunt Lori with Charlotte in front; Lauren’s Mom, hugging Boaz (back middle). Her Grandparent’s 30+yr old veggie garden is in back.
