We are Trevor, Laura, and James (future big brother!) It is an honor and a privilege to be considered as prospective adoptive parents for your child. We cannot imagine what you are going through as you are selecting a caring family to place your precious child with, but we are confident that your heart will lead you to the right match. We hope by looking through our pictures you will learn a little about our life together. Our hearts are open and we are ready to grow our family again! We adopted our son James in November of 2015 and are ready to add to our love.
Our lives revolve around our friends and family since that is what is most important to us both. In fact, we may not have become a couple if not for the encouragement from our close friends Ellen and Drew. They knew us both well during our single days, and would prod each of us with a "Trevor's your guy!" or "I'm telling you, Laura is perfect for you!"
Once we finally went on our first date, we absolutely hit it off! It was unlike any date either of us had been on before, we talked for hours and didn't stop from that moment on.
Believe it or not, our relationship progressed so quickly that we began talking about starting a family of our own even before getting engaged. We both had a lot of experience with kids thanks to our friends and family and quickly learned that we wanted the same things out of life. Our wedding was a great example...rather than having a typical wedding party, we invited all of the children from our friends and family to dress up and play that important part in the ceremony. We had over thirty children walk down the aisle ringing bells before Laura made her grand entrance!
We Love To:
Go to the park to play.
Cook fresh meals together
Talk about our days at breakfast and then catching up over dinner
Attend college football games (Go Horned Frogs!)
Go to church every week
Family trips to national parks - just returned from a week in Yellowstone.
The beach in Florida and South Carolina. Visit grandparents and sisters.
My parents, Jim and Pat live close by and might be more excited than we are (if that is possible!) to meet our future child and welcome him or her into our family! They are involved in holidays and regular visits. When we told my mom and dad that we were adopting again, they were ecstatic! I have two younger sisters, Mary and Nora. Mary is a foster mom in her community and the abundance of love she shares with everyone she meets is inspiring. Nora and her husband Andy have 4 adorable girls who can’t wait to have another cousin. Nora shared so much mom advice when we brought James home, she cannot wait to meet our future baby. Her hubby Andy is giving, patient and loves to build things. I can’t wait to see what he will build for the baby.
My parents, Bob and Sheila, could not be more excited to meet a new grandchild! I have an older brother, Dave, whom I am very close to. He lives in our community and I see him almost every day. He is the goofy uncle and looks forward to perhaps coaching James and his sibling in sports someday. Uncle Dave is very artistic and enjoys doing art projects with James. My younger sister, Whitney, recently had a little boy, Zachary, who is our first nephew. We look forward to many family adventures with her and Zach.
