Your child will know of your selfless love and your generous heart. Your child will be the treasured gift that completes our family. No matter what, we wish you all of life's blessings.
Through our experience with our first adoption, we can honestly say that the loving plan you have for your child is going to bring unspeakable joy to a very grateful family.
Our family at the beach
Like many who adopt, we've always known that our hearts were completely open to adoption. Call it a gut feeling. While our path to having a biological child was filled with obstacle after obstacle, our path to adoption was crystal clear once we found Gladney. For us, it wasn't a difficult choice to do what was in our hearts. In our experience with welcoming our daughter Mira through adoption, waiting for everything to fall into place was a big part of the journey. But seeing the pieces come together so beautifully in the end transcended anything we ever expected. It is our dream to be a family of four. We believe that there is something so incredibly special about children having the companionship and love of a sibling, and we can't wait to adopt again. Through our experience with our first adoption, we can honestly say that the loving plan you have for your child is going to bring unspeakable joy to a very grateful family. Your brave decision will transform so many lives, from the adoptive family you choose, to the grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends whose hearts your child will touch throughout his or her lifetime.
Our Home & Community
There's a sense of peace and calm in the neighborhood, and we also create that sense of tranquility in our home, a haven where we will always encourage our children to be creative, discover a love of learning, and celebrate who they are on a daily ba
Mira in our backyard
We are blessed with an amazing community of support, from our loving families to our kind neighbors. Like us, our parents all live in Texas, ranging from a 10-minute drive away to a 3-hour journey that's easy to combine with a beach vacation! One of Mira's favorite weekend activities is enjoying dinner with Mimi and Pop Pop, hosted at her aunt and uncle's house, where she can run around with their dog Ollie. We also have many extended family members of all ages within a short driving distance, and we all get together for parties on holidays and occasions such as Christmas and graduations. Our immediate families may be small, but we have a large extended family. There is never a dull moment, and we wouldn't have it any other way! We live in a hilly, green area of town, and there's so much natural beauty to experience. We're close to the center of the city, yet we're far enough out of the way to have space for enjoying the outdoors, including the local parks. We spend a lot of time at our neighborhood playground and pool, which are a short walk from our house. Our cove includes many supportive, diverse neighbors who make this place truly feel like home. From a family across the street that has grown through adoption, to the two young children who are Mira's playmates, there is an engaging community life here that we highly value. There's a sense of peace and calm in the neighborhood, and we also create that sense of tranquility in our home, a haven where we will always encourage our children to be creative, discover a love of learning, and celebrate who they are on a daily basis. Art supplies are within close range, books are abundant, sensory activities are always at the ready, and outdoor play is a huge part of each day. We've designed a hands-on space where the wonder of childhood takes center stage.
We will honor what makes your child a true individual, celebrating the diversity and beauty they bring to our lives.
Kate & Mira
We promise you that your baby will be loved for exactly who he or she is. Our goal as parents is to provide the unconditional love, support and encouragement that will empower our children to thrive and discover their gifts and strengths. We will honor what makes your child a true individual, celebrating the diversity and beauty they bring to our lives. Our purpose as parents is first and foremost to be there: to add joy and fun to the good days, to be a comfort on the hard days, and to be our best selves so that we can enjoy a long, healthy and happy life with your child. We will travel with our children, share the magic of the learning process, and make discovery, adventure and laughter a big part of each day. We will constantly strive to connect our children with people and experiences that mirror their diverse backgrounds, and we will share our commitment to speaking out against racism and inequality. There is so much we want to teach our children, but even more important is our ability to listen to their unique voices. Should you choose our family for your precious child, we will all cherish the time we spend getting to know you. You will forever be honored in our home. Thank you again for spending time getting to know us. May your days be filled with an abundance of joy and blessings.
