Dear Expectant Parent(s),

Thank you for taking time to learn a little more about us. We hope this profile gives you a little glimpse into our lives and our relationship. We are grateful for you and your courageous decision to consider an adoption plan for your child. Please know that no matter what you choose, we wish you, your child, and your family all the best.

*****

Hello! I (Kody) was born and raised in Northern Indiana by two devoted parents along with my three siblings. In 2017, Lauren and I became an aunt and uncle to our nephew (the first child for my younger brother and sister-in-law). It's been amazing to watch my parents enjoy their new role as grandparents, and, likewise, my siblings become parents, aunts, and uncles. It's only made Lauren and I more excited to grow our own family.

We've been together for more than thirteen years. We spend as much time outdoors as possible - whether doing yard work, hiking trails, kayaking, or taking our dog for long walks. One thing I love about Lauren is that she's full of adventurous ideas, keeping us exploring new places. We spend lots of time together and are best friends. I admire that Lauren is loving, spirited, and a very generous person. She has a huge heart and offers support to anyone. She strengthens me to be a better person daily. I am thankful to have her as a partner for life. 

We believe our faith and passion for others calls us to be parents. We will raise our child/children to be open to life's experiences while God, family, and close friends remain the focus. We are truly excited to grow our family through adoption. Many long discussions and nights of prayer brought us to Bethany, and we are ready to walk the path set before us.

Sincerely,

Kody

*****

Hi! I'm Lauren. I'm the second oldest in a family of four daughters. My family moved several times when I was young, but central Indiana was my first memory of home. My parents still reside in my childhood house, even as my sisters and I have all grown and married and (some of us) moved to new cities. We are a big, sarcastic, close-knit group. An outsider might describe our husbands as quiet, but that's honestly because they can't get a word in!

Kody and I met very early on in college. He was tall and oh-so-sweet. Immediately, he requested a date and persisted for a full YEAR before I agreed. He might tell you I was stubborn, but I'll tell you I was picky. He had to earn my trust, and that he certainly did. Kody is the most patient, loyal, and level-headed person I know. After almost seven years of dating, we were married in 2011 and never looked back. We have lived in the Nashville-area for more than six years – we absolutely love being close to the city, yet never too far from hiking trails and fresh mountain air!

Even before we were married, adoption was deep in our hearts. Fostering, adopting, and biological children were quietly part of our discussion when we talked about growing a family. After several years of reflection and prayer, we began our adoption journey in early 2017. We are overjoyed to become parents. Watching Kody as a loving, amazing dad to our future child/children is something I can't wait to witness every day. We promise to unconditionally love our children and raise them to be proud of who they are and where they came from.

Thank for choosing to walk this journey. We are keeping our hearts open to wherever this road may take us.

With Love,

Lauren
