Dear Expectant Mother,
We’re so excited you decided to read a little about us and really appreciate you taking the time to look into our profile. We hope you will see how much we yearn to be mothers, and we believe you will not find two more devoted people on this planet to raise a child.
We are truly best friends and love each other more than we ever knew we could; it is the kind of deep and abiding love we desperately want to share with a child. Being parents and raising a family together is a deeply rooted desire for us both, and we know a child will complete our family, so that’s why we have decided to pursue adoption. It just feels right, and it is absolutely the path for us.
There are many hopeful and deserving parents out there, so we want to share with you what we believe will make our home the best fit for your child. If you choose us, your child will grow up in a house filled with laughter. We enjoy laughing and living life to the fullest. We are both very close to our big families, and are blessed to be able to surround a child in our home with not only our unconditional love, but also the limitless love of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.
While we believe in discipline, manners, faith, confidence, sincerity, and loyalty, we also believe in learning through positive reinforcement. We both thrive in upbeat, joyful environments, and that is what we wish to provide for a child.
Thank you again for taking the time to get to know us. We are hopeful for the opportunity to get to know you.
We’ve known one another for most of our lives. We grew up in the same hometown about a mile apart. We lost touch after high school when Lauren’s family moved away. We went in completely different directions for college, with Lauren excelling at history and English and Robyn in math and the sciences. Believe it or not, we both actually use our degrees in our professional life, (we make a great trivia team). We reconnected in 2013, and knew right away together is where we belong! We were married in November 2015, and couldn’t be happier.
Our 1950’s ranch style home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, original hardwood floors, and an updated kitchen with a large screened in porch, deck, and huge privacy-fenced back yard (perfect for a swing set some day!). Most evenings you can find us congregating with our neighbors at the end of our driveways while the children ride bikes or play T-ball in the street (it is a dead-end street, so no traffic). We’re in a highly acclaimed school system, close to many parks, museums, and a lot of other family friendly activities. We enjoy DIY projects in our home, gardening, and spending time with our two dogs, family, and friends.
Our Extended Family
We love our family, and we spend a great deal of time with them. They can’t wait for us to have a baby and share in all of our special times. Lauren is an only child, but has three older half-siblings and she has some first cousins that she is very close to. Her maternal family all live on the same 100-acre area of farmland about an hour away. Robyn is the middle child of three girls, and she has a large extended family who lives within an hour’s drive, who we see often.
In our house, one of our favorite times of year is the weekend after Thanksgiving, when we put up our Christmas tree. We also love the beginning of SEC football season, and typically have a party for the University of Georgia vs. Auburn game. That is the one major thing we disagree on - college football.
What Led Us To Adoption
We always knew we wanted children. We tried to become pregnant with fertility assistance three times, but when those were not successful, we came to understand and know in our hearts that adoption is the right way for us to create our family. We are both nurturers and cannot wait to fulfill this desire with a child of our own. Our mantra is, “the more people who love a child the better,” and we look forward to working with our birthmother to find the right balance for everyone.
