A Letter from Robert & Erika
Thank you and welcome to our profile. We are grateful for the opportunity for you to get to know us! After struggling with fertility issues we were blessed with our daughter, Kamila, in 2019. We are so thankful to God for leading and guiding us through this journey to grow our family through adoption. We are excited to share our love, faith, and home with your child.
We have been together for 19 years and married for 17. We enjoy experiencing life together and enjoy going camping, traveling, working on home improvement projects, and watching movies. As the years have passed, we struggled with infertility, after multiple treatment attempts, we found our hearts lead to adoption. In 2019 we were surprised and blessed to learn we were pregnant and, later that year, we welcomed our daughter, Kamila, to the world. We are thrilled to now grow our family through adoption and look forward to loving your child unconditionally. We are so excited are ready to be fun, loving parents to our children who will thrive in a caring and playful home.
Knowing Robert and getting to share my life with him has been a true blessing. He is the most caring, hardworking, and kind person I have ever met. He is a lease operator in the oil industry in our area. His hours are flexible, which makes it feasible to assist if he is needed at home. He is always thinking of others before himself and loves making everyone around us laugh. He is an easy-going person, smart, and creative. Robert’s a hands-on person, he is not afraid to tackle a problem and find a solution! That is just one of the wonderful traits I aspire for him to pass on to our children. He is wonderful with our daughter, nieces, and nephews! He is dedicated and encouraging to anything they do and need. He is such a loving and attentive husband and father and is excited to welcome our next child home!
Erika is a loving wonderful wife. She has the biggest heart and has so much love to offer. When I first met her, I knew she was the one. She is beautiful, smart, and I could not imagine my life without her. She is a registered nurse at one of our local hospitals and she is compassionate and loving which are two things that come naturally to her. She enjoys doing arts and crafts and decorating our home. She is a fantastic mother to our daughter and a fabulous aunt to our nieces, nephews, and of course to our doggies, she is one of a kind. Erika is an amazing wife, a dedicated mother, and is so excited to share her love and passion with our next child.
Our daughter, Kamilla, was born in 2019, and she is such a blessing in our lives. She loves to smile, giggle, and can light up any room she’s in. We know she will be a wonderful big sister to our next child.
We both were born and raised in a small town with large values. Both of our parents have instilled in us the faithfulness of marriage as a sacrament, both being married over 35 years. We look to them as role models for long-lasting marriages as they fulfill their duties as parents and grandparents.
We enjoy taking our traditional family vacations with our nephews and going to different places to trying new things almost every year. It is a true adventure to enjoy when we are all together and we look forward to including our children in all of our family fun!
We live in a wonderful home that is close to multiple parks and near several schools. We purchased our 3 bedroom home in a quiet neighborhood a little over a year ago. Our backyard is large enough and ready for different kinds of play equipment. Our two puppies, Bella and Roxy, love children, and love the attention when a child is around. We enjoy the outdoors and like working in the yard, trying different projects, helping our home look and feel extra “homey.” When we are not doing outdoor chores, we enjoy having family over for barbecues, watching sporting games, and or just sitting outside on the patio around the fire pit laughing and enjoying everyone’s company.
We promise to love and care for your child every step of the way. We promise to share our love and faith with him or her. Our families are thrilled and more than ready to welcome your child into a loving and caring environment. We promise to keep them safe. We promise to encourage their education, interest, and provide the support they need while following their dreams. We are also open to discuss any future interactions that you would like to have with them such as visits, cards, letters, and calls. If you would like to learn more about us, please call or text Lifetime at 1-800-923-6784.

|More About Our Family|
|Our Special Interests|
Our special interests include a lot of the same things. Robert and I share a very special bond and enjoy each other’s company no matter the hobby or activity. For example, we love to travel. We love to always make time for each other no matter our work schedules, and so we try to get-away any chance we can. We’ve travelled to beautiful places and now we hope to share future vacations and fast get-aways with our children. We also enjoy traveling with our families, trying new adventures and experiences with our siblings and their children. We have a love for the outdoors and can’t wait to go fishing and camping with our own little ones surrounded by loved ones around a campfire eating s’mores. We can’t wait to share these little tasks we do with them such as how to swim, bake together, work on crafts, teach them how to read, how to pray. We’ve had the privilege to be a teacher to our nieces and we love that interaction and the lessons they have taught us and we can’t wait to do the same with our little ones.
Our faith has been so strong. We believe in God, faith, and prayer. Since moving here, we have been in search of a church to call home. We have been visiting a local church with our siblings and their children. Although we were raised with different religious backgrounds, both Robert and I can agree that our love for God is the same. We continue to grow spiritually and we love and respect each other’s beliefs. With God at the head of our home, faith, prayer, and love are the most important treasures we can share.
|About Our Home|
We relocated from a small town of about 3,ooo to a busier West Texas city that has lot to offer. We live in a quiet neighborhood that is within walking distance to our neighborhood school and the local YMCA. The city offers a wide range of activities for kids from the young age of pre-kindergarten to the needs of a higher level of education. We have family members within walking distance of our home that would be able to assist in case of an emergency. When searching for the perfect house, we always imagined that we would have a children to fill the bedrooms, to play in the huge back yard with our pets, and of course, to have swing sets and other outdoor equipment for them to play on.
Our families are small and very different in their own ways. While we enjoy traveling and sharing new experiences with Erika’s 2 siblings and their kids and parents whether it be cooking, playing games, and spending the holidays together, we enjoy different activities with Robert’s 2 siblings and their kids and parents. With his family, we partake in larger family gatherings with his aunts and uncles, cousins and other loved ones around the BBQ pit enjoying each other’s food and company. We watch the kids play and talk about how fast they are growing. We both love our families and love the various activities we do together. There is nothing quite like the love one shares with their families.
