Meet Our Waiting Families
Meet Our Wonderful Families!
Hi there! We are Jake and Jennifer.
The 11 years of marriage that we’ve clocked in so far have been an absolute whirlwind of fun. God has blessed us with three incredible children: Kylie Jo, Lila, and Dustin; so life at our house is loud, crazy and simply perfect. Our days are full of playing, learning, laughter, and love.
The desire closest to our hearts is that our children will love God and love his people which means we’re doing everything in our power to lay a firm foundation for them. We are all beyond excited to add even more love to the mix over here. God has grafted adoption into our hearts in mighty ways.
Besides being excited to get to love another baby, we are equally excited for the birth mother to become an extension of our family. We know that every birth mothers story is unique, complex and beautiful and that we will be better people for knowing a woman who chose one of the most beautiful pictures of love.
We are so honored and beyond excited that you are considering us as prospective adoptive parents for your baby! You are an incredible person and the love you have for your unborn child is shared in our hearts. We can’t express through words; the respect we have for you and the beauty of the plan you are making for your unborn child. You are such a strong and selfless woman. We promise to love, protect and support your child the way you envision for them. We promise to share the love that you have for them and always make sure that they know of the beautiful love. We will share with them the sacrifice you made to ensure their happiness in life.
We are Mario & Elizabeth. We have been married for 7 lovely years. We are a team and are soulmates. Our marriage is based on faith, love, trust and respect. We support one another and have a very stable, happy and loving marriage. Within our 7 years of marriage we have developed a strong foundation and are excited to welcome a little one into our lives! We both have great careers that provide financial stability. Mario is a Garage Door Technician. A career he began after our 1st year of marriage. Elizabeth went to school to become a Medical Assistant and obtain her certification. We do share some of the same hobbies and interest. We enjoy being active and outdoors! Especially walks in the park with our Dogs. We love to go on vacations and explore other states. Adoption is love in the most beautiful way and we are so excited to be parents! We cannot wait to have a little one running around and continue to make many wonderful memories as a family.
Thank you, again from the bottom of our hearts for considering us to be the adoptive parents of your baby.
Hello, sweet birth-parents. We are Dre and Stephane.
The two of us have felt the Lord leading us to adoption for quite a while and are patiently waiting. We not only look forward to welcoming a precious baby, but are just as eager to love and care for you!
There is already so much love for you and your baby within our family, and we continue to pray for both of you.
Our view on adoption can be boiled down to this:
Hi there! We are Andre and Nicole! Please let me begin with two simple words from us to you…Thank you! Our names are Andre & Antoine. We are from North Texas and I want to thank you for allowing us the possibility and gift of being parents. We cannot express in words the gratitude we have for you and the difficult decision that lies ahead of you. We will ensure your child knows how important you are to the both of us and you will always have a special place in our hearts. My husband works for the Department of Defense and I work for a financial institution. We live in a quiet, multi-cultural neighborhood with a community center, playgrounds, and a pool nearby. Our home is located within a very highly rated school district and only minutes away from an exceptional elementary school. My husband and I look forward to taking your child to and from school once he or she is old enough.
Our hobbies and interests include spending time with our families, traveling, working out, reading, game nights with family, and attending church.We are committed to providing a safety, security, education, adventure, and most of all love to your child, whom we would be blessed to have. You will be in our thoughts and prayers.We know this is a confusing and difficult time for you while you are trying to figure out the best option for you and your precious baby. We hope that you feel supported and loved no matter where you are at in your journey. We admire you so much for choosing life and for considering adoption. We promise to cherish and love your child with our hearts and souls and to provide a safe, happy, home and a life with every opportunity possible. Know that we are praying for you and your sweet baby throughout your pregnancy, that God will fill you with peace in whatever decision you make.
Thank you for taking time out to read our flyer. I look forward to hearing the hopes and dreams you have for your child.
Wishing you the best!
We are Josh and Zabdi.
We have been married for 5 years and our family consists of the two of us and 3 dogs.
For a long time we have been wanting to start our own family but have not been able to do so. We found ourselves learning about adoptions and once we met Andrea and we understood the process we knew it was where God wanted to lead us all along.
Family is at the center of our lives and our large extended family has been very supportive of our adoption journey and cannot wait to include your child in our family.
Our promise to you is that your child will be loved and cared for and they will know their story.
We are Zach, Carmen, and Josiah, and we understand this might be a difficult time for you. We are praying for you, your baby, and the decisions you will be making in the coming days. We have been happily married for 13 years and have a stable marriage built on our shared faith. We adopted our son, Josiah, 5 years ago and have loved every moment of laughter and love he has brought into our lives. We would love to welcome more children into our home and hearts through adoption.We make our home in the country, which allows us to have several animals including dogs, chickens, goats, ducks, and a mule. Raising our children in the country has been our dream, and we love being able to provide our children with opportunities to learn and play outdoors. Getting to experience and interact with nature and wildlife on a daily basis is a blessing for which we are grateful. Our home and property provide myriad opportunities to teach our children not only about biology, chemistry, and agriculture, but more importantly about God’s creation and His wonderful mercy.
Thankfully, we have a good relationship with Josiah’s birth mom, and we love and respect her for the choices she made which allowed us to fulfill our dream of becoming parents. We know the sacrifice and love she showed through her decisions, and we are thankful every day that she chose to give life to our precious son. May God lead you in His path and give you peace and confidence in your decisions.
With admiration and respect,
Zach, Carmen, and Josiah
Hello, we are David and Candida. We are a bilingual family. We have been married for 16 years and are truly best friends. We tried to start a family three years ago but lost the pregnancy. We now think God may have a different plan in mind on how to start our family. We believe that plan is adoption. We want you to know that if we are chosen, we promise to love this child with all of our hearts. Our families will be there to love, encourage and support this child. We promise to teach this child about God’s love and of the loving and selfless sacrifice you made. We hope you will consider us.
Hello! We are Robert, Kamelia, Emma and Rachel. Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile. We have been praying for you! Robert and I have been married for twelve years and have been parents for eight years. As a family you will see us spending our days reading, playing games, exploring nature and cooking together. We also love playing with our Australian labradoodle, Sadie and watching our pet fish. I stay home and enjoy being home with our girls teaching them and growing together. Robert works for our church. We are actively involved in our church and enjoy serving others and creating community.
All of us are so excited to add another member to our family. The girls talk about their new sibling all the time and already make all kinds of plans for all the fun they will have together. Robert and I believe that children are a precious gift from God. As parents, we try to honor God with the way we raise our children and we desire to help them grow, develop, and learn about who they are and what they were born to do in life.
We are praying for you and for peace and strength in your decisions as you walk this journey!
We are Jim and Missy. We are so grateful our paths have crossed! Thank you for taking the time to get to know our family a bit more and how we might fit into your story. We met in graduate school in 2013, where we quickly became friends and fell in love. We married in January 2015. Over the past five years we have been hoping to grow our family but have not been able to. We entered into the adoption process eager both to become parents and to be a source of support and encouragement to a special birth family. Some notable things about us:
We believe Jesus changes everything, so we attempt to live our lives in a way that testifies to God making all things new.
We have two scruffy, lovable dogs, Norman and Lawrence. We live in a quiet, diverse neighborhood in Houston (with fabulous neighbors we adore). We love our home and inviting others into it, whether it be brunch, game nights, holidays, or yard games. We love any reason to celebrate! We sing a lot of silly songs. We eat a lot of ice cream. We value authenticity, laughing, community, and adventure. We own way too many books. (Our future child even has a stocked library already) We enjoy traveling and exploring new places and cultures.
It is our honor and joy to be considered as your child’s adoptive parents. We are in awe of your bravery and the sacrificial love you have for your child. It is important to us that you feel respected throughout your child’s life. Furthermore, we vow that your child will always know they are loved by us and you. We can’t wait to meet you and walk alongside you in this season of our lives.
Hello there! We are Jared & Shannyn. We are church sweethearts! We met in youth group 15 years ago and have been married going on 4 years. We continue to be involved in our church and have many great friends that have become family over the years!
Since before we even became a couple, we talked about our hopes and dreams that we had for our future. We have always dreamed of having a family. When we got married 4 years ago, we knew that we wanted to start a family right away! When we found out that we would not be able to have children of our own, our first thought was adoption. We knew that this was the path that God was calling us down. As we continue down this path, we are in awe and wonder of the wonderful birth moms and families that we have read the stories of and had the chance to meet at various events.
Some fun facts about us:
~ Shannyn is an elementary school teacher & Jared manages a local hardware store.
~ We have 2 wonderful dogs, Bella (Sable Collie) & Shelby (Golden Retriever) & they love spending time with our nieces & nephews as much as we do. We lost our Micky (Tri Color Collie) to cancer, but he is still in the family photo.
~ Shannyn loves to bake & quilt! Jared loves working on home improvement projects & working in the yard.
~ We enjoy listening to a good book together & a movie night at home.
We live in the same area that we grew up in, with our families to be close by. We enjoy frequent family gatherings and dinners. Our families have been so supportive of our decision since Day 1, and they could not be more excited. Our families are eagerly awaiting the arrival of another family member to welcome in and shower with love. Please know that you are so loved, and we are praying for you & your family daily.
Hello, we are Mary Beth and Jim! From the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank you for taking the time to consider us as potential adoptive parents. We can only imagine how overwhelming this journey may be for you and want to honor you for your tremendous courage. What an amazing act of love and care for this precious one who is on the way. We are praying for you and hold the highest regard for you and your journey. If chosen, we cannot wait to pour our love onto the child God places in our arms and lives! We will strive to provide a most loving, nurturing, and supportive home…and throw in lots of fun and humor too! We especially desire to honor you and your decision, and to make sure to convey the love you hold for this little one.
Our journey began when we met in high school and fell in love. We grew up right around the corner from each other but did not actually meet till our late teen years. We were married in our early twenties and have enjoyed life together as a couple. Our hardest challenge was the long wait we have endured to have a child. We both know and have always known in our hearts that we are meant to be parents. We are so excited to begin this journey and see our dream come true! Although we live out in the country, we are in a wonderful neighborhood with many children and we feel it will be a great place to raise a family. We are both drawn to adoption. Mary Beth grew up witnessing this amazing experience with close family friends. Now, our next-door neighbors have recently adopted a baby and we have been delighted to see their beautiful story unfold. Our family and friends are beyond excited to also embrace this child. This child will be exceedingly loved and celebrated by many!! They will also know how very loved they are by God.
Jim has a career in logistics management. He loves biking, cooking, and bowling. Mary Beth works in the field of school psychology and enjoys counseling and working with children of all ages. She also loves to read, write, bake, and spend time with friends. We both love taking long walks together down the country roads where we live, going to concerts or movies, and snuggling and playing with our sweet dog, Colbie Jane. Colbie is an Australian Shepherd with blue eyes. She loves to play with the kids in the neighborhood and they love her too. They often come to our door asking for her! We cannot wait to expand our family and we do not take this gift lightly. Thanks again for considering us!
We hope to show you through a few words and pictures who we are and the love we have for one another. First and foremost, what an incredible gift you are bringing to this world! We cannot imagine how difficult of a road this has been, but are thankful you chose to walk it.
Should we get the opportunity to partner with you, we promise to honor our child’s birth parents and their decision to give our child life, to raise our child with love, warmth, and compassion, to teach our child that God’s path is there to follow, and to provide for our child the values and resources needed to set the foundation for a successful future.
We have been blessed with very close families. On both of our sides, our parents and siblings are our closest friends. Most weekends are spent with one side of the family or the other. Across the immediate family, we have 6 siblings, 5 parents, 4 brother in laws, 3 nephews, 2 nieces, and 1 son of our own. There are plenty of open arms waiting for another family member to arrive. Until that time, we will continue laughing, loving life as well as one another, and being thankful for everyday we are here together.
Thank you so much for your gift of life! You are the answer to our prayers! For 7 long years we have longed to have another baby. God closed that door but He has opened this one for His very good and grand purposes! We trust in His goodness always. Before I go on, let me introduce my husband and I!
We are Evan and Wendy Noren. Evan is has just turned 40 and I am 39. He is 6’4” with gray eyes and brown hair and I am 5’8” with brown eyes and long brown hair. We are somewhat hopeless romantic‘s and you can tell so by our degrees! Evan’s 1st degree is in Biblical Studies and mine is in Music. Evan went back to school years ago and got another Bachelors Degree in Information Technology. He is now a Software Developer and writes computer code for a living. I taught at a Preschool this past year but am primarily a Stay-at-Home mom. We are also both Licensed Foster Parents in the State of Texas and we love helping children that are neglected and hurting, whether it’s foster kids in our home or just even kids in the neighborhood.
Evan’s extended family is mostly in California where he’s from. However interestingly enough, his brother and his wife have a four-year-old adopted little boy named Carson and they are in the process of adopting another! Your child will not be the only adopted one in our family!!! My extended family is spread out all over but I have a sister living here in Fort Worth Texas with her family. My younger brother lives in the DFW area and lastly my oldest brother lives in California. We love to do family dinners at least once a month if we can!
In our free time Evan and I both love to be outside in our backyard garden. He does the vegetables and I do the flowers. We both enjoy reading and playing with our daughter and supervising her play with the neighborhood kids outside. Evan likes to fish and I love to play with and care for 2 our dogs Trudy and Dash.
I absolutely love my husband’s sense of humor! He makes me laugh all the time and it makes life so much more enjoyable! He also has a servants heart and is others-centered. Evan loves it when I get silly and laugh with him and he loves watching me care for the kids in our neighborhood and for our family especially. It will be 11 years in September 2020 that we have been married!
We currently attend a Baptist church but are considering becoming Lutheran. We want to celebrate the Eucharist more frequently than we do at the Baptist Church and we feel that Lutherans put that emphasis on the Eucharist moreso than do a lot of churches. When Covid is over we will be able to start visiting the new church that we have in mind.
The only other person living in our home is our daughter Alana who is seven years old. She is our precious gift from Jesus! She has been longing for a sister for as long as I can remember so thank you again for answering her prayers!
I plan to remain in a Stay-at-Home mom position until your child enters kindergarten at least! We feel very fortunate that Evan’s career has offered us the ability to be a one-income family so I can raise our children instead of needing child care. After Kindergarten, any kind of job that I have will be secondary to raising your child. I hope to work only when the kids are in school for the most part if possible.
Our family is very supportive of us adopting. They have ached along with us on our long journey of infertility and cheered us on through our journey of foster care so they will definitely support us should this be the way we grow our family.
Thank you so much again!
God bless you, Wendy and Evan

To an Extraordinary Woman
I am grateful and beyond excited that you are considering me as a prospective adoptive parent for your baby! You are an amazing person and the love you have for your unborn child is shared in my heart and the hearts of my immediate family members. Words cannot express the respect and gratitude I have for you and the beautiful plan you are making for your extraordinary unborn child. I am humbled and forever grateful of this moment and will continue to cover you in prayer and love.
My name is April and I am currently living single and have never been married during my lifetime. I joined the United States Air Force in 1997 and recently retired from the military after serving over 22 years in the Healthcare Administration field. I have been blessed and fortunate enough to share my life journey with my lovely mother Aracely Gaines over the past 9 years. A few years following my fathers’ passing in 2006, my mother came to live with me in beautiful Hawaii. She has instilled my current values of faith, love, trust and respect and I plan to set this as the foundation to my future children. We both continue to be the best of friends and share many memories of traveling adventures, holidays and simply the joy of spending time together as a family. I am excited to welcome a precious little one into my life and can’t wait to spread the same love and support my mother has given and continues to give me.
I had a great career in the United States Air Force and have continued to use my experience and skills in my current job as a Project Manager for a healthcare organization. This company’s culture promotes work-family balance, work schedule flexibility and the ability to work from home, as needed. My military retirement and current position provide financial stability and financial peace of mind in supporting my family. I have successfully earned a Masters in Business Administration and Masters in Health Administration in 2003 and 2013, respectfully. Within this past year, I have pursued other educational opportunities such as certifications which requires periodic online educational courses to maintain currency. I am an advocate for learning, in any capacity, and plan to instill the importance of education to my future children.
As a young adult, I always wanted to have children and looked forward to the day I would become a mom. In 2015, I started my journey to become a mother by seeking infertility services however never thought I would continue to have infertility struggles which would eventually keep me from conceiving. I could not imagine not having a child in my home and felt in my heart and spirit that God’s purpose for me was to grow my family through adoption. Adoption is surrounded by love and grace and I am so excited to be a mother to a precious child. I can’t wait to become a nurturer and provider to a little one and continue to make memories as a family.
I live in a growing community filled with diverse groups of families ranging from retired to families with children. I have a pretty decent size backyard with enough room to play around in. I have one small maltipoo dog that is almost 3 years old. Our neighborhood is very family friendly with a community pool, park and playground. Both elementary and high school is within walking & biking distance from our home. Our community is location within a 15 to 20 minute drive to a variety of entertainment spots, shopping, sporting activities and amusement parks such as SeaWorld and Fiesta Texas.
I enjoy both indoors and outdoors. I enjoy some of the simple things such as going on walks, having movie night, relaxing at home or enjoying some of my pastimes such as playing corn hole or listening to music. I also enjoy getting out and exploring new places and visiting different spots such as museums, outdoor gardens and beaches! My family and friends are an important part of my life and support my adoption journey to the fullest extent possible. They are excited to welcome a new little one to the family!
I promise to love, protect and support your child the way that you envision for them. I will promise to share the love that you have for them and will always make sure that they know of your beautiful love. I will be their biggest cheerleader at every moment of their life. I will encourage them to dream big when it comes to their future and will support them in achieving their goals. I will share with them the courage and strength you had in ensuring their happiness in life. Thank you so much for reading my story and for considering me to be the adoptive parent for your precious baby.
We are Caleb and Kara from central Texas. We’ve been married since 2016, bought a 2-story home with 4 bedrooms and 2 playroom areas in 2018 and we’re ready to fill it with family which begins with a precious child!
We have been close friends since 2011 working on creative projects that have included voice acting, singing, and producing original content such as radio plays. At the time, Caleb was working in sports production and Kara was a pre-school teacher and communications assistant for her church. We began to date in 2012 and in 2014 Caleb began to form a career as a singer and vocalist for a variety of projects. By 2015 it became evident that between Caleb’s talent and Kara’s knack for organization, we were able to have full-time jobs in the music industry.
We are a family who loves God and His Word, the Bible. We believe in prayer and have great faith that He is leading us on a journey to find our child. We have also been praying for you! You have shown great courage, strength, and humility to take these challenging steps forward with your life and the life growing inside you. We are eternally grateful to your decision to allow us to grow our family. You have faithfully already chosen to love your child by putting their needs above your own and we vow to ensure he or she will fully know the sacrifice you made.
Kara especially understands the value of your decision. She was given up at birth because her birth mother knew she was unable to provide for a third child at 19 years old. She traveled from Mexico to Texas to pursue an abortion, but by the grace of God and her willingness to sacrifice a part of herself, she changed her mind opting to offer her daughter up for adoption. Kara was given a home with a wonderful family who were able to give her an adventure-filled life full of love.
Because of Kara’s personal experience as an adopted child, she has longed for the day that she too would be able to adopt a special baby. Caleb began to share that desire as we discussed family planning and now both of us pray regularly for you and the small life you’re bringing into the world.
Hi, we are Taylor and Maci.
Thank you for considering us in your adoption plan. We want you to make the best decision you can for you and your baby, so we thought we’d let you get to know us a bit better.
We have been married for five years now and are so excited to welcome a baby into our lives. Most of our family lives nearby, so your baby will have plenty of young cousins eager to meet and play with them. We each have two siblings who are excited to become uncle/aunt, and parents who cannot wait to spoil their first grandchild. Along with family, we have two dogs that are great with children, Molly and Beau. Molly loves to play, and Beau loves to nap.
We live in a new neighborhood which has close access to parks and two elementary schools. We enjoy going to the duckpond to have picnics, walks, and to throw around the football.
Some of our favorite home activities are watching Family Feud, playing games, and cooking. Taylor loves to read and hopes to pass that love along to a child. Maci enjoys baking and can’t wait to share this interest with a little one. We like to watch sports and Disney movies together and are excited to do this as a family of three. Maci loves hockey, so we go to as many Dallas Stars games as possible, and Taylor loves football, so we enjoy some Sundays at Cowboys Stadium.
We believe that a strong foundation for any child starts in church. Both of us were very active in our church’s youth groups and would encourage any child to do the same. Maci comes from a long line of preachers, so a relationship with God is extremely important to both of us. We also would encourage a child to find their own interests, including sports, academics, or anything else to help them grow into who they are meant to become. We both want to expose a child to as many opportunities as possible, so that they can determine what it is they truly enjoy. As they grow up they will always have our love and support in anything that they choose to do.
Thank you for taking the time to consider us and looking over our profile. We are excited to meet you and welcome you and your baby into our family.
Taylor & Maci
Hi there, we are Everett and Sasha!
First, we want to thank you for choosing life for this amazing blessing you are growing inside of you. We admire you for considering adoption as we know this is a confusing and difficult time in your life. You will be giving someone the gift of life, and someone else the gift of parenthood. Know that you are so loved and appreciated by your child’s adoptive parents, for you have blessed them with a life they have been praying so hard for.
We may not have been fortunate enough to conceive naturally, but we firmly believe that God’s plans are bigger than us and it’s what has led us here, to you. We promise you that this baby will be loved and cherished every step of the way, regardless if they are of our blood or not. We promise to value their opinion and provide a safe, happy home and a life with every opportunity possible! We promise to keep God in the center of our family and teach our children of his grace and mercy. Above all else, we promise to be the best parents we can be to this child and remain grateful for their presence in our lives eternally.
We both love to spend our time together enjoying God’s creation to mankind. We love to go fishing and hiking when the weather is nice, and enjoy spending quality time with the family any chance we can. Everett enjoys his spontaneous hobbies like skydiving, while I pursue Makeup Artistry as my side hobby. We are both so different when it comes to our likes and dislikes, but we balance each other out in the best way possible.
Dear Birth Mother,
One thing we know at this point in time is that you are courageous and you love your unborn child dearly.
Listen to your heart and let the Holy Spirit guide you during this momentous time.
All things work together for the good of those who love God.
Whichever path you take, we pray that you feel God’s presence with you every step of the way and that He arms you with strength and conviction.

Should you choose us, this is what we promise you:
We will love your child unconditionally

We will provide the avenues for your child to pursue his or her dreams and talents
