Lauren & Sydney

Dear Expectant Mother,

We cannot even begin to imagine how difficult this decision is for you. We know that your baby is a piece of you and admire your strength and courage in pursuing adoption. While we have never had to make a decision like this, as foster parents, we have experienced how difficult it is to love a child and watch them leave our home. We are honored that you are considering us as your baby’s adoptive family. We have been longing to raise our forever baby, and by choosing us to adopt your baby, you would be fulfilling our greatest wish.

We have done so much to prepare for the addition of your baby to our family. We feel confident in our parenting abilities as individuals and as a couple. We have learned our strengths and weaknesses and how to complement each other. We can assure you that your baby will be loved unconditionally. We promise to be patient, understanding, and respectful. Our family values vacation and traveling, and we look forward to showing your baby the world. We have enjoyed exploring our community with our previous foster children by going to the zoo, museums, art festivals, and amusement parks and look forward to doing these things in the future. We have built many lifelong connections through our experience as foster parents and are open to including you in that family if you wish. Thank you so much for considering us and taking the time to read our profile.


About Us

contact

Sydney is a registered nurse at a local hospital and is responsible for managing a 36-bed inpatient unit. She has worked at the same hospital for 12 years and thoroughly enjoys her job. Lauren works as a health educator at a local university. She is responsible for providing students with education and counseling relating to sexual health, substance use, and mental health. We met in our early years of college and had an instant connection. We have been together for 13 years and have been married for six. We immediately recognized that we shared the same beliefs and values. Sydney admires Lauren’s intelligence and wit; she is so talented, creative, and organized and makes our family function like a well-oiled machine. Lauren admires Sydney’s intelligence, people skills, and drive. She has worked hard to advance her career while being a loving and nurturing foster mother.


Our Home

contact

We live in a residential neighborhood in Pennsylvania. We are close to many playgrounds, museums, the zoo and aquarium, and many community events. We live in a friendly neighborhood and always join our neighbors for block parties. We are an active family and enjoy going for walks around our city. Our home is the perfect blend of each of us, decorated with artwork and bright colors yet comfortable and relaxing. Lauren is proud of her eclectic style that is represented throughout the house, and Sydney is happiest curled up on the couch in the finished basement. We have two cats and one dog. They are all very friendly and love being around kids.


Our Extended Family

contact

Sydney has two brothers and one sister. Everyone in her family lives locally except for one brother. She is very close to her parents and enjoys getting together with them regularly. Lauren has one brother and one sister. Her family lives approximately four hours away from us, and we typically see them several times per year.

Lauren is closest to her younger brother and talks on the phone with him daily. He is fun to be around and is always very engaged with our foster children. We typically spend every holiday with Sydney’s family with a formal meal and festivities. We also enjoy spending time at Sydney’s parents’ weekend property, which typically consists of swimming, fishing, campfires, and hiking.

Everyone on both sides of the family is ecstatic about our decision to adopt, and they are looking forward to having a new family member. We have two nephews, ages 8 and 3, who are desperate for a cousin!


What Led Us To Adoption

contact

We always knew that we wanted to have a large family. Sydney’s sister is adopted, and she saw first hand what an amazing journey adoption can be. We began fostering in 2013 and have cared for nine children so far. All of these children either returned to their biological families or found a kinship adoptive family. We decided in 2015 to attempt to build a permanent family and began fertility treatments but eventually learned through several miscarriages that this was not going to be the route to our forever family. We are continuing to foster children while also pursuing private adoption. We truly enjoy every minute of parenting and can’t wait to add to our family.
