Thank you for taking a look at our Adoption Profile! We started the Adoption process in December 2018 so it has been an interesting 2 years for us. We have an approved Home Study now but that did not come easy! We moved within California during the summer of 2019. We wanted to take some time to adjust to our new jobs and new surroundings before we recommitted to the paperwork and website-building for our Adoption process. Unfortunately, early 2020 held a surprise for all of us and our Home Study was delayed due to social distancing restrictions. This felt devastating and caused us to wonder if we would ever get to match with a Birth Mother. With the help of Adoption Professionals and the support of our families, we persevered. These days, we are enjoying our jobs, awaiting the upcoming holiday season, and loving the quiet days we get to read by the fireplace with our dogs. We feel blessed but there is always the tug of loss- we yearn to be parents and hope a Birth Mother will connect with us and make an Adoption Plan. We may be able to have biological children one day but for now, Adoption looks like the best way to make our lifelong dream of becoming parents a reality.
Please pray for us as we remain steady in our faith, patient in our waiting, and hopeful in our plan to Adopt a beautiful little baby! -Lauren & Nathan
