Hello there- We are excited to share our story with you! It is hard to sum up our lives in a few pages and pictures, but our hope is that you can see the LOVE and openness that we have with each other and cannot wait to share with a child.
Although we cannot begin to understand what you are going through, we are so humbled by your courage and strength. Thank you for considering us.
Prepping for Christmas dinner. We love our Christmas brunch, hanging out all day and then a big dinner!
Our backyard with lots grass and places to play:)

Traveling to spend time with family and Phillip's friends he grew up with in Korea. AND got to tour an Air Force plane!
Trying to stay healthy!
Who We Are
The beginning of US:)
Phillip moved to the Seattle area for his job four years ago and happened upon the same hair salon that Lauren goes to (yes, jokes for years!). Lauren grew up mostly in one place (Seattle area) and enjoyed working with kids and spending her free time with friends and doing anything active and outdoors. Phillip grew up in many different places (his father was in the military) and enjoyed traveling, spending time with friends, cooking and going to church. We dated for three years and in that time our two worlds naturally integrated. Now we do most of our favorite things together (although thankfully for Lauren, Phillip still cooks and thankfully for Phillip, Lauren runs by herself;)). Both of us have always wanted to have a family and are so excited for the path of adoption.
It is very important that we get to spend as much time as possible as a family. The balance of Phillip working full-time and Lauren working part-time allows us to spend a lot of quality time together in the mornings, evenings and all weekend.
I just found this cute school picture of “P” (what I usually call him). After I found it I just had to look through my childhood albums to find a picture of us around the same age. Cannot wait to make an album that has us and a child all together:)
We had a great time bringing in 2018 with friends and their kiddos! As usual Phillip cooked an awesome meal and everyone laughed, danced and stayed awake until midnight (or at least some of us;)). Can’t wait to see what 2018 brings!
