Luke was born in the States, and was the 3rd of 4 sons. He moved to Belize, C.A. when he was 8. He lived there with his family till he was 19 when he came back to the States for college. His childhood is filled with amazing memories of playing in the jungle, swimming in rivers, going in caves. While there, his family adopted 2 little Belizean girls and we are so thankful for them being a part of our family. He has been a good force for lots of fun play in our family now. He loves taking the kids walking on trails and getting out and having lots of outdoor play. Our kids know that he is always willing to play with them, snuggle with them, and willing to listen to their thoughts and feelings. He is an amazing Dad, and I am so incredibly thankful for all the little things he does for our family. Luke is a great husband who is quick to forgive, quick to apologize, has a heart for serving me and his family, and always goes above and beyond. His faithful devotion to the Lord, his family, and to me is amazing, and I literally could not have asked for a better partner in life. - Kayla

Kayla grew up in South Georgia with her parents, and her older brother and sister. From an early age, she knew that she wanted to be a Mom and to adopt. She loved riding her horse, Red, and hanging out with her friends. She is a dedicated mother that truly puts her children and her husband first day after day. She loves to cook and especially bake which brings joy to everyone that gets to eat what she makes. She is always quick with a hug and an encouraging word. She has always been a safe place for me to talk to as well as her friends and family. She balances me perfectly. I'm so lucky to have her. - Luke

Dear Birthmother

Hi There! Thank you for taking the time to get to know our family. We recognize the choice you are making is one of the most difficult a woman can face in her lifetime. We are focused on loving well, and not only are we excited about adding to our family, but so are our kids. We understand that this journey can be a hard one and we hope that we can offer love and support as you walk through this time. More than anything, we want you to know that we will love your child unconditionally and will nurture him or her to grow up to be the best person that he or she can be. We promise to provide an upbringing in which God is a central figure and values such as generosity, kindness, and respect for others are taught everyday. We also promise to encourage your child's hope and dreams and to provide the best possible education. We want you to be a part of your child's life so that he or she can have an understanding and appreciation for the tremendous sacrifice that you made out of love. Your child will always know where he or she came from, we will speak of you often in our home, and of how much you love him/her.

Reason to Adopt

Both Luke and I grew up in a home where adoption was the norm. I have an adopted older brother, and Luke has two younger adopted sisters. We grew up understanding both the immense blessing of adoption, and even some of the hard parts. Its helped us to be open to all that adoption can be. We talked about it before we were even married and knew we wanted to adopt at some point. We finally felt like the time was right, and decided to move forward with something we have wanted from the start, 16 years ago!

Travel

We love traveling as a family. Whether its out of state, internationally, or just in our home state. We have gone to Belize a couple times as a couple, both for personal reasons and for missions trips, but are wanting to take the kids soon. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Disney and cannot wait to go back again. Every year we try and take a smaller cabin/camping trip that has become a family favorite, making s'mores and going on hikes. We go to the beach at least once a year. Our heart is for our kids to get to explore the world more and have an appreciation of other types of cultures and people.

Our Kids-

We have 4 kids, a 14 year old, a 12 year old, a 10 year old and a 7 year old. We adore our children, and find great joy in parenting them. They are all so much fun to be around. We are teaching them all an instrument(of their choosing) and they all love playing sports(lots of soccer and track & field!). They love being outside, so we try to do lots of trial walking, and playing outside when we can. They are our pride and joy and look forward to adding another member to our family.
