A Letter from Adam & Taylor
Hello from Texas! Thank you so much for taking some time to glance into our lives. We are an active and fun-loving couple who enjoy spending time with our daughter, family, and friends. We can often be found working in the yard, exploring local parks and playgrounds, hiking, or relaxing on our back patio as we watch the planes and ducks fly over. We love Jesus and can’t wait to share our lives and all the amazing people in it with your child. We’d love to learn more about you and foster a relationship that meets your comfort level! We are open to letters, texts, phone calls, and in-person visits.
We met on our first day of college, about 14 years ago, and have been together ever since. We got married right after graduation and Adam started medical school on the other side of the country a week later. We have learned a lot about remaining flexible and faithful to what the Lord has planned for us.
We enjoy keeping busy outdoors, whether that be exercising, yard work, having picnics, or playing hide-and-seek in the backyard with our 4-year-old daughter, Summer. She is such a sweet blessing to our family! After years of pregnancy loss, the Lord has led us to adopt, and we are excited to grow our family once again.
We live in a 4 bedroom house nestled in the back of a safe and family-friendly neighborhood. Children play in the streets and our neighbors are some of our best friends! Our home is blocks away from one of our city’s best elementary schools and there is a beautiful bike path that we like to explore along the lake nearby.
Our home is open-concept and great for playdates and entertaining (like our weekly Taco Tuesdays) and the extended back patio leads into our fenced backyard. It’s the perfect play area for our daughter and friends. The kids especially love the trampoline and two-story playset! We have a playroom with many toys, dress-up clothes, puzzles, and books.
Our daughter, Summer, is energetic, compassionate, gentle, and creative. She thrives on community and prefers to stay busy with other children. One of her favorite things to play is house! She loves her friends and family and will be an incredible big sister!
We love our families and have wonderful relationships with everyone on both sides! We have the added blessing of them all loving to be together, too. (We even vacation together as a group each summer!) This dynamic is something very special to us that we know is a unique blessing.
Both of our families live in Texas as well. They are all just a short 2-3 hours from us. We typically see them once a month and talk to them all weekly on the phone. Each of them are very excited and supportive of our decision to adopt!
Taylor runs her own online fitness accountability group and is a stay-at-home mom. She plans to return to elementary teaching after their children are school-age. At home, she loves to make learning and playtime hands-on for Summer by making sensory bins, building forts, going on nature walks, and baking! She looks forward to sharing in these fun activities with your child! In her free time, she enjoys exercising, being outside, embroidery, and drinking coffee while reading.
From Adam: Taylor is the most caring and selfless person I have ever met. Every day she inspires me by how she puts the needs and wants of others before her own. Anyone who spends time with her immediately feels a strong connection to her. Everywhere she goes, she makes meaningful and lasting relationships with the people around her. She is a loving wife and mother who constantly supports, encourages, and grounds her family.
Adam is a pediatrician and works full-time caring for kiddos and families in the community. He loves people and making the most of every day. He likes to keep moving and enjoys doing things with his hands, like exercising, hunting, and woodworking.
He never turns down an opportunity for dessert and loves to spend time with Summer, whether that be building with magnet tiles, bouncing on the trampoline together, or letting her loose on his face with makeup! He is excited to share these many experiences with your child and introduce them to his love for the outdoors, sports, and especially brownies!
From Taylor: Adam is a breath of fresh air! He brings joy, positivity, and connection to any room of people. Not only is he smart, hard-working, and devoted to our family and friends, he serves our community so very well. Adam thrives on adventure and spontaneity while also bringing life and laughter to the mundane. He is the best daddy to our little girl and will translate all his amazing qualities to our next child!
Our promise to you is to nurture and love your child unconditionally just as God has done for us. Your child will grow up in a safe and supportive environment that is full of joy and opportunity. They will have spiritual and emotional guidance throughout their life as they develop and learn about the world, and we will root for them every step of the way!
Your child will grow up knowing their adoption story as well as how valued they are by God, you, and our family. We would be happy to share milestones with you through email, letters, texts, and planned in-person visits.

|More About Our Family|
Our faith is central to who we are, how we choose to walk through life, and the sweet relationships we have made in our marriage. Some of our deepest and closest friendships are those in our church family. Raising our children up to know Jesus and be a light in this world is one of our most important callings, so your child would be active in our church's children's ministry.
We participate in weekly services, men's/women's bible studies, children's ministry events, as well as bi-monthly community group time with other parenting couples.
|Our Favorite Time as a Family...|
We all look forward to the sweet time we have together as a family right before bed. We love getting comfy in Summer's bed, reading stories, talking about our day, singing songs, and saying a family prayer. Summer likes to call it a "prayer pancake" sometimes because all our hands lay flat on each other!
We have two cats that could not be any better with children! Sometimes we question their insane tolerance to all the body slams, smother hugs, and chasing that happen with our daughter and her friends!
Simba is a 12 year old orange tabby and still loves climbing fences and exploring the backyard!
We both LOVE dogs and do plan to have them someday, but are letting the kitties enjoy life for the time being!
|What is your favorite thing about your home?|
Taylor loves Summer's room the most! It gets lots of sunlight and has so many meaningful details that were made or given to her by loved ones, such as her house bed that was built by Adam, paintings from her aunts, and the dollhouse that belonged to Taylor as a child.
Adam loves the backyard where we host playdates, Taco Tuesdays, neighborhood gatherings, etc. There is so much space to move around, play, and relax. He loves to throw on a podcast and mow for hours!
Summer loves her room and playroom (she can't pick just one!) where all her favorite toys are waiting for her. She talks non-stop about playing and sharing all these things with her brother or sister someday!
|We Prefer a Child Who Is...|
|Age of Child|
Thank you so much for taking the time to learn more about us! We are humbled beyond belief that you are considering us to love and support your child. We will teach them about Jesus all the days of their life, encourage them in their passions, and love them unconditionally.
