Dear Friend,

It all starts with you. Although we haven’t met, we’ve been thinking about and praying for you for a long time. Adoption is such a gift. A gift of love, a gift of strength, a gift of self. We want you to know how amazing we think you are. The sacrifices you are making are seen and noticed, and we are just in awe of you. We recognize the choices you’re considering may be full of emotional and physical challenges, but we pledge our support to be there for you. We hope the information we’ve shared is helpful in making a decision that feels right for you and your baby.

While dating, we discussed our desire to use adoption to grow our family, even before we knew the struggles it would take for us to have biological children. We were blessed with our little boy three years after trying to conceive a child. Adoption has played a large role in our extended families, and we have seen the love and joy that can come from adoption. We feel strongly that another child is waiting to join our family soon, through adoption. Thank you for considering adoption as a possibility for your child.

We love our life and are so excited to welcome another member to our family! We know Keaton will be an incredible big brother and probably smother his new sibling with all the love and affection he has to share. And in turn we hope your child will have a chance to smother additional siblings down the road, adopted and biological. The matching Christmas jammies, Easter egg throwing contests and fall pumpkin patch snapshots of their life will be filled with family, laughter and fun.

One of our greatest desires is to offer the world to our children. We want to help them learn and understand hard work, love, and true and lasting happiness. We will teach them to have strong moral values and great personal character. We certainly aren’t perfect parents, but it is a job we love more than almost anything else. We will happily attend every soccer game and dance recital, watch Baby Shark ten trillion times and support your child in every possible way we know how, because we love it. And we love our family.

If you choose us, we promise an eternity of love and support for your child. We are grateful to you for taking the time to consider us and wish you all the best. We hope everything in your life works out for the better and again are so inspired by your gift of adoption to your child.

Love,
Dallas & Lauren

Q&A

What are some of your hobbies?

Some of Dallas’ hobbies include playing and watching sports (football, baseball, throwing a Frisbee), working out with friends, spending as much time as possible with family, playing online Risk with his brothers, hiking, and wrestling with his son, Keaton. Lauren loves to read, sing, dance, bake, and challenge herself with complex crafting projects. She recently completed a complex, Disney princess cross-stitch then built a mudroom in our house. Dallas fears what might be next…haha

What do you hope to teach your child(ren)?

We hope to teach our children how to work hard and enjoy the fruits of their labor. Everything in life worth having takes effort; relationships, earning an income, hobbies, staying healthy- everything. Additionally, we hope they learn to live with integrity—to do the right thing when no one else is watching. Being an overall good person with talents and strengths that add to our family and society is our goal for our kids. We hope to nurture, educate and love our children so they know who they are and why they are here on this earth. Life is such a gift and we hope they learn to love and cherish it.

What will you tell your child about his or her birthmom?

We hope to share age-appropriate things with our child about their adoption, birth parents, birth story, the whole gamut as they age and progress through life. They will be taught to love their birth mom. Your child’s backstory is unique and critical to understanding who they are. Their birth parents provided the DNA running through their veins and so many other aspects of who they are and will become. Although we may provide the means for them to accomplish their dreams, their innate talents and abilities, heritage and life are all made possible because of their incredible birth mother.

Are you active in your church? Tell us about your activities.

We are very active in our church community and love the fellowship we feel there. Dallas works with the 14-15-year-old young men on Sundays at church and Wednesday evenings. They have fun, weekly activities and Dallas loves going to extracurricular events for the youth to support them outside of church settings. Lauren works with the children’s classes ages 18 months-11 years old. This age group has about 85 kids in it and she loves learning all their names and getting to know each one individually as she teaches and visits with them on Sundays.

Describe your last vacation and/or daytrip.

Whenever possible, we go to Disney. Disneyland, Disney World, Disney anything- we’re there! The magic you feel at these places is almost tangible and in a hard, not-so-fluffy world sometimes you just need the goodness and light that Disney provides. When we go, we try to make it a family affair and bring grandparents or extended family which is a great opportunity to spend quality time with the people we love. Lauren also has a gluten-intolerance and Disney has an INCREDIBLE array of gluten free choices which provides her all the foods she misses out on at home.

Will you be a stay-at-home parent? If so, what are your day-to-day plans?

Lauren is currently a stay-at-home mom and LOVES it! Keaton and Lauren love playing outside, going to the library weekly, making frequent trips to the zoo, and finding new places to explore. Growing up, Lauren always wanted to be a stay-at-home mom and now that dream has come true! She can’t wait to add another Little to her daily adventures.

When you close your eyes and see yourself holding your precious baby in your arms, what are your thoughts regarding his or her birth mother?

What a gift. What a blessing. What an amazingly heroic woman. We will always be in awe of our child’s birth mother and oh so, so grateful for her choices and strength leading to our adoption.
