It takes such an amazing act of love and selflessness for you to consider making such a brave decision.  Above all else, know that you are in our thoughts and prayers! We are Greg and Lauren and we became a family of four through the gift of adoption. Our two AMAZING sons are Wesley and Camden. They both know their adoption stories and their birth families are in our lives. We are all excited to grow into a family of five and will welcome you and your baby with loving and accepting arms.

We want you to know how incredibly loved your child will be.  Their days will be filled with all the love in the world, laughter, and two big brothers that will spoil them and truly will believe the world revolves around them!  They will have the opportunity to grow up to be whomever they want to be in life, whether it’s a doctor, teacher, musician, or even a farmer like Greg.  Most importantly, we want you to be a part of it, however much you are comfortable being. We share a close relationship with Wesley’s birth mom, and share pictures and updates with Camden’s birth parents as much as possible. We will respect what feels right and works best for you like we have done with Wesley’s and Camden’s birth families.

As a couple, we have been together for 12 years and married for 11. Even though we are polar opposites, we both quickly knew we were meant to be together! Greg was raised in the country, while Lauren was raised in the city. Greg can be quiet and shy, while Lauren can be more outgoing and easygoing. For all of our differences, we share the same core values. Some of those values include a strong love of our family, faith, and dreams of building a future and family. Wesley just turned 8 years old and is the goofiest and sweetest second grader you’ll ever meet.  He is always ready to tell us a corny joke to make us laugh, and he loves to cuddle on the couch with Lauren. Camden is almost 4 and has the orneriest grin and most contagious giggle. He loves to get in tickle fights, and his cackle will ring throughout the house! He also knows when he is doing something he’s not supposed to, and you can see that twinkle in his eye and that smirk to see if he can get away with it! Wesley is excited to be a big brother again and Camden can’t wait to be promoted to big brother. They are excited to welcome their new sibling, whether it’s a little sister to protect or another brother to rough house with!

In our free time, we enjoy spending time together as a family. We live on a 162-acre farm surrounded by pastures and crop ground. Have you ever visited a farm? There is so much room for kids to grow, learn, and explore! We like to have fun outdoors, whether we’re jumping on the trampoline, riding four-wheelers to check cattle, swimming during the summer, fishing, playing on our playset that Greg built, practicing baseball with Wesley, or having a bonfire with friends. We also treasure the cozy moments of snuggling up on the couch together to read a book.

Greg is a full-time farmer, farming 1400 acres of row crop ground.  Along with that, we raise 175 Black Angus cows as a family.  Lauren is a full-time babysitter as well as a stay-at-home mom to Camden. We live in a small, rural community where everyone knows your name and everyone cares about each other.  When something bad happens, the whole community bands together to help. When good things happen, we come together to celebrate. We are lucky enough to live a mile down the road from Greg’s parents and a short 5-minute drive from Lauren’s parents, which means your baby will have both sets of grandparents close by!  We are extremely close to them and are so thankful for all they do for us and the boys. The boys love baking cookies with Lauren’s parents on the holidays and playing board games with them. They also love going up to Gregs’ parents to be spoiled with hamburgers and milkshakes and playing outdoors on their farm. We both come from large extended families so there will never be a shortage of love to go around! Greg’s family is spread out all over the country and is HUGE, while Lauren’s is mainly in state and just a few hours drive away. We have friends we consider family as well; some that we have been friends with our whole lives! They all have children as well, so there is an abundance of kids around all the time.

Thank you for letting us share about ourselves and our lives. We hope that our profile gives you a chance to get to know us and gives you a better idea of what life would be like if you decide on our family. You are the only person who knows the best path for you and for your baby. We can’t wait to see what your future holds!

Thinking of you,
Greg and Lauren
