Luke and Lauren

Who we are?

We want to thank you so much for taking the time to view our profile. We are excited for the opportunity to express our love and gratitude for you and your courage. We can’t wait to grow our family through adoption and provide a loving, nurturing and stable home and we will love your child and help them grow into the best person they were made to be.

We met in college and have been married for 14 years. No matter what we are doing, we love spending time together as a family. We love to camp, ride bikes, travel or just stay in and watch a movie. It is very important to us to make time for family and to make memories with our kids. We love watching them learn new skills like riding a bike or singing their ABC’s. There is no greater reward and blessing in life than raising our children and watching them succeed.

Lauren is a stay at home mom and Luke is a doctor in a hospital. Luke’s schedule allows us a lot of quality family time with our three kids, Sasha who is 7, Gus who is 6 and Miles who is 3.5. Sasha is our calm and observant 2nd grader, Gus is our energetic and snuggly 1st grader and Miles has the most energy of all and stays home with Lauren walking the dog, cooking or playing with playdoh, but he will start preschool next Fall. They are all so excited to welcome another little one into our family and be a big brother or sister!

Why we chose adoption?

Growing up, Lauren had always thought of adoption and the possibility, but once we were married, we soon realized in order to have children, adoption was likely our only way of growing our family. We immediately began to look into adoption and after 7 long years, the day we finally became parents through adoption to Sasha we experienced a love unlike any other. The same emotions were present when we welcomed our biological son Gus and then our son Miles through adoption. Meeting our children for the first time was such a surge of happiness and joy. Watching each of them grow into individual people with their own unique personalities, wants and desires is one of the greatest joys of parenting and life. The gift of a child and the love one offers is unlike any love we have experienced and we consider it to be the closest thing to God’s love for us. We know this love because of birthparents like you and the sacrifice they make is so amazing. Thinking about the selfless and brave decision Sasha and Miles’s birthparents made to have us raise their children has shaped our understanding of what true love is. We are so excited to adopt again and experience the love of you and your child.

Why we should be picked as the adoptive family?

Both of us have always dreamed and planned on having children for as long as we can remember. We both have large families and to have children of our own was one of our very first conversations as we started dating. We have always wanted a larger family and know we have so much more to give. We feel that we have so much more love to offer another child and we believe siblings are the best gift we can give to our children. They love each other and the companionship they offer is priceless. We are so excited to get to know you and to love your child and watch them grow.
