“We loved you before we knew you, even when there was just hope for you... we loved you.”

Secondary infertility is so hard and people struggle to understand this kind of heartbreak. YES we love our son, yes we are blessed to have him in our lives, and we love him beyond measure! BUT in our hearts we have always wanted a big family, and it’s okay to follow that dream, we decided that WE ARE NOT GIVING UP! Not this year, or the next one... there is a long journey ahead of us and we are ready. <3.

Who We Are

We are two people hoping to be lucky enough to be chosen to raise your sweet baby. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us! We know this is a confusing and difficult time for you while you are trying to figure out the best option for you and your precious baby. We hope that you feel supported and loved no matter where you are at in your journey. We admire you so much for choosing life and considering adoption. If you decide to make an adoption plan, we want to assure you that we promise to cherish and love your child with our hearts and souls to provide a safe, happy, home and a life with every opportunity possible.

Derrick and I met over 4 years ago near my hometown of Ocean Springs. We started talking on the phone a lot lot lot, until one of us fell asleep. We finally met for lunch one day, he drove over 2 hours to eat mozzarella sticks and have a beer with me and it was just one of those things “you had me at hello.” After a few dates, my son Kayden, and my friend Ashley went to New Orleans to visit the zoo and Derrick met us for dinner and it was also his first time meeting my son Kayden (insert song —> My Boy, by Elvis Shane) Kayden was obsessed with Derrick the first time they met, it was an instant attachment and I knew my life would be forever changed. He was the “something” missing in our life and we are forever grateful for him to take Kayden in as his own, teaching him things like how to cast a fishing pole, bait a hook, gun safety, throw a football, catch a baseball, and sooooo much more! Now we are hoping to find our missing piece together, a sweet baby.

Adoption Diary


This. This is the first picture I ever took of Derrick. It was our first date and I was so NERVOUS! But when you know you know. Fast forward 5 years later and how lucky am I? I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. I cannot wait until the day he gets to hold his future daugter/son and I know he will make the best father (literally, Kayden got him a trophy that says so!) He is such a wonderful husband, father, and everything in between.

What? It’s 2021?!

Wow it’s already mid January? How is that possible? We spent our new year with Derrick’s family and it was just packed full of fun! Then here we are back in the real world with school for Kayden and work work work. Tonight I cooked a quick dinner - beef tips over rice and Kayden and me made up our own cookie and it turned out so yummy!
