To Someone Special,

Thank you for taking the time to meet us through our family profile! Please know that we have been praying for you and your baby daily. We cannot imagine the internal struggle you are facing. While we are very excited to grow our family through adoption, the emotions you are probably experiencing contrast our own greatly. We hope this profile paints a picture of who we are and how much we love each other and will love our future child. We are looking forward to adding another young life to our family.

Since before we were married, adoption has been something we desired to pursue. We were blessed with two biological children, yet the pursuit of adoption remained close to our hearts. We are eager to welcome and love the next child, boy or girl, God brings to our family with our whole hearts.

Though our love is open to anyone, our current agency only supports domestic (within) Ohio adoptions.

We pray God gives you peace as you walk through this process. We love you and your baby. We pray you find all you hope for your baby.

Stephen, Kristian, Micah, and Killian

Who We Are

We met our first year in college and were close friends before we started dating. In September of 2011, we were married with all our family and friends present. We have always loved spending time together going out or staying in. We still make time to have date night a few times a month. In 2013, we were blessed with our first son, Micah. Then, in 2016, Killian was born. Both boys were born prematurely and had to spend extra time in the hospital while they finished growing. Micah loves to go to school to learn and make new friends. He is very creative and enjoys drawing. Micah’s kind heart makes him an amazing big brother to Killian. Killian loves to play outside. He loves to meet new people and he loves to play with others.

Raising our boys has added another layer of enjoyment to our marriage and our traditions. Holidays like Halloween and Christmas are family favorites. Every Halloween, we spend the evening with Kristian’s parents. Nana (Kristian’s mom) makes gumbo for the family to enjoy together while Papa (Kristian’s dad) passes out candy to the neighborhood kids. After the boys have their trick or treat fun, they love to help Papa pass out candy. Christmas is an especially busy time, but it’s always so fun! Christmas Eve is spent with Grandma and Grandpa, eating authentic Spanish cuisine. Their house is full with our family, Stephen’s sister, Sarah, her husband Jordan, and their daughter, Ava. Christmas morning, we celebrate at our home, eating homemade biscuits and gravy and opening presents. In the afternoon, we head to Nana and Papa’s house. Papa reads the Cajun Night Before Christmas every year before Micah and Killian pass out the Christmas presents to everyone.


Birthdays are also a big deal in our house! We often celebrate for days with decorations, cake, and parties. We decorate with streamers and balloons every birthday and build up decorations until we have the birthday party. We love to host family birthday parties in our home.

We have two dogs, Eva and Arlo. Eva is our super sweet older dog. She loves kids and is very gentle with them. Arlo is our spunky pup. He has a very special bond with the boys and he loves to play fetch with them.

We love to travel as a family, frequently visiting our families in New Orleans and Indiana. We also love trying new things. Our favorites so far have been going to King’s Island, local parks, and camping. We love to try new food, but we especially enjoy Cajun cuisine and seafood! We also enjoy finding seasonal festivals near where we live. Family time is so important to us! We are raising our family surrounded by love and support and adventures.

Adoption Diary

King’s Island

We live close enough to a local theme park that we go nearly every week during the summer. We love going on rides with our sons. They also have a water park that we visit often. Our sons are little fishes, they love the water. We always look forward to our family time at Kings island. This past time we went they had a special event for “Carnival.” They had floats and a bunch of dancers with a parade that weaved its way through the park. It was well done and the boys really liked it. The dancers spent time with the kids, inviting them to dance along with them during their performance. King’s Island is a fun place to spend the day!

Stephen’s Family

I love my family. My Dad, who is an engineer, helped me discover and develop my love for computers. My sister Sarah and her husband Jordan had their first child in 2019 and are going to add another in September. We love seeing them often! My parents love living close enough to us and my sister to be able to spend time with their grand kids. We love our holiday traditions. Christmas is especially unique. My mom is from Spain and every year she fills the table with authentic dishes for our feast. Thanksgiving is spen with our family every other year. Our sons have cousins there and greatly enjoy being able to play with them. My family is so excited to welcome another child into the family!
