Meet Our HOPEFUL 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.
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!

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.
Hi! We are Kory and Leslie. We feel honored and blessed that you are considering us as adoptive parents. We guarantee you that this child will be loved each and everyday of their life by us and our entire family. We understand that this decision is difficult and we are praying for you along your journey. We have been married for 7 years and are truly best friends. At the center of our marriage is our relationship with Jesus Christ and we look forward to raising a child who knows the unconditional love of Jesus.
Kory is a man who loves deeply, and his family is his number one priority. He is in sales and is always the life of the party. Leslie is a public school teacher and loves helping students grow each day! Providing great school experiences for special education students is her passion.
We are excited to become parents and raise a child who knows their rich history and all the people who love them. We love to spend time outside in the pool, traveling, attending sporting events, having weekly family dinners, and with our dog Queenie.
Thank you for considering us, we can’t wait to meet you!

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:

Dinah & Shawn
Hello, birth-parents. We are Mike and Kylie.
Having been together for ten years and married for eight, the two of us felt led to the adoption process. For the past year, we’ve been preparing our home and our lives for a precious child to join us. We’ve prayed for you and your child for a long time and are ready to welcome each of you to our family.
Our hope is that we can form a strong bond with you and have you as a part of our lives as well.
We currently have no children, but we do have a dog and a cat (Winston and Kallie) we call our fur-babies. Kylie works for an engineering firm within the accounting department and Mike is a high school and college football reporter. Mike’s schedule is flexible and allows him to work from home meaning he will be home to care for the child each day.
We live in our family home in Texas where we have a big yard and plenty of room for play. Our neighborhood development also has a playground and aquatic center for when your baby gets older. The neighborhood is safe and quiet with many other children and younger couples up and down the street.
We enjoy spending time outside in our backyard or taking walks around the neighborhood when the weather is nice. We also love to travel and get outside of our immediate area to see more of the world.
We both grew up in church and developed a personal relationship with God at a young age and we intend to foster the same relationship with your child. We can’t thank you enough for the sacrifice you’ve made so that we can have a child to love.
Thank you for your consideration,
Mike and Kylie
Hello! We are Devon and Adam. Although God has not yet blessed us with children, we have known for many years that adoption would be an amazing path for sharing our lives and hearts with a child. We are honored that you are considering us as a potential adoption family.
Just a few weeks after being married in 2018, we knew living full-time in Dallas, TX would not give us the rest, beauty and memories of having a home in the country. So, for the last 3 years, we have spent most of our weekdays at our Dallas home, and most of our weekends, and holidays, at our vacation home on Cedar Creek Lake. Family memories have been made constantly at the lake as we teach nieces, nephews, and cousins the simple life of fishing, swimming, kayaks, and taking the boat out to catch a beautiful sunset over open water. Bear and Gemma, our goldendoodles who are gentle and love children, also make up a good part of our home life and literally count the seconds until we hop into the car to make our way back to the lake where they can chase squirrels and jump in the water!
We feel called to serve others with our love and time. We are active mentors in the Big Brothers Big Sisters programs, and consider it an honor that those families have trusted us with helping their kids in personal and educational development. At our church, we also have served in children education programs.
We have always dreamed about being parents and having a child to raise in a loving home. We are very excited to be adopting and have so much love to share for this child as we expand our family. Please always know we will unconditionally love and cherish your child and we will make sure that they will be proud to be adopted and know God’s love for them. We hope these pictures and information gave you a look at our lives and we look forward to meeting you. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
Our home has ample family space inside and a huge backyard for various fun activities! Caleb works for a wealth management firm and Miranda works for a family venture capital firm. Keeping God central to our family is important to us and we participate in various church activities such as co-leading a small group in our home, occasionally leading a women’s or men’s group, serving in the nursery, and on the board. In the community we volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters and special needs programs. Serving others is a virtue we hope to instill in our children through leading by example.
Your decision to create an adoption plan for your baby leaves us feeling incredibly humbled, grateful, and amazed. We know that this new life is precious and cherished and if they (and you!) become a part of our family, they will be loved and cared for with all we have.
Praying God wraps you in peace and confidence throughout this journey.
Caleb, Miranda, and Quinn
