We are incredibly grateful and honored that you are taking the time to learn about us. We deeply respect the decision you have before you. We cannot imagine what it must be like to be on your end. We too never expected to be on this one. We welcomed our healthy biological daughter into this world excited to give her a life full of love and opportunities beyond what we ever had growing up as children. Yet the one thing we will never give her is a biological sibling. This at first was very painful to learn, until we accepted God has another plan.
We are confident that God will provide you the answers to what is best for you and your baby as we are confident that God will match us with the son or daughter that is destined to be part of our family. This child will be loved unconditionally and always have our greatest support.
May God bless you and bring you peace during this time as he has given us.

Meet Lori: I am blessed beyond measure. I am a Christian, a devoted loving wife, and dedicated mother of an amazing three year old daughter. I live every day to be the best I can be at all three of these things. I love traveling, music, cooking, the beach, and spending time with friends and family. I grew up in rural Alabama with parents married nearly 30 years. I am a passionate advocate for children having worked as a lobbyist and a senior policy advisor for a state governor.
Meet Joshua: When I was 14 years old, my father passed away unexpectedly. I was raised by a hard-working single mom and older sisters. At 17, I enlisted in the Army Reserves to help give me structure and to pay for college and law school. I currently hold the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and have been a Trial Attorney since 2003. One of the greatest blessings God has given me is that of fatherhood. I wake up every day with a sense of urgency to be the very best dad I can be.
Our home- Open the door and you hear the sounds of our life! Music playing or the sounds of Mickey Mouse Club House, or the lively chatter about our day is heard. If it's around meal time, either a BBQ grill is smoking or an aroma of some southern dish is on the stove. Our home has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. Our older neighborhood has large trees aligning the sidewalks and is located 2 miles from our historic downtown. We have a neighborhood swimming pool within walking distance of the house.
Our Pets: Our 13 year old pup is family! Sadie is our sweet little scavenger. The nose of a Beagle, she sits and waits patiently for a crumb to be dropped. I admit, she's better than the vacuum cleaner!
We are rich with family and friends who love and support us! We've perfected the art of traveling. Since our parents can never get enough time with their grandchildren, we load them up and take them with us. We get our families together for tailgating, Tough Mudder races, amusement parks (Disney World, Busch Gardens, Sea World...) parks, holidays, birthdays, and sometimes just because it' s Saturday.
Our friends are family. These are some of the closest people in our lives! Godparents, college friends, childhood friends, and colleagues makeup our family's support system. We get our kids together for trips, holidays, birthdays and football games. We have friends from all walks of life and backgrounds and cherish these relationships that foster so much love.
