A Letter from Luke & Rachel

Thank you for taking the time to learn about our family. We have been married since 2007, and after 5 years of infertility, were blessed with 2 wonderful little boys. During those 5 long years, God brought our hearts to adoption and that desire has never left us. We are so excited to grow our family through the joy of adoption and to welcome a child of any race and gender into our home of love, fun, and laughter.

About Us

We met at bible school as young adults and married in 2007.

After 5 years of praying we were blessed with our first child, Sam, and not long after him our second son, Ben, came along. We know the Lord had us fall in love with adoption for a reason and we strongly believe God has had His hand on this whole process and timing.

One of our favorite pastimes would have to be coming up with story ideas of books we would love to write someday.  All 4 of us love books so much, and its so much fun to come up with stories! As a family, we love playing games and have a closet full of games and puzzles. All of us are excited to welcome your baby into our family and to share with them all of life’s big moments.

About Luke

Luke is my best friend. He is a responsible man who always does his best for his family. He a sheet metal journey man and has a long history of leading in church through the music ministry.  He excels in whatever he spends his time on.  He enjoys building everything! From beautiful tables to fantastic costumes for the kids. Whatever he’s working on, he makes it a point to show the boys how to do it and to let them help him so that they learn. My favorite thing about Luke is his booming laugh! Our home is always full of laughter, and Luke’s causal/easy-going personality is what leads our home with joy.

Luke is so excited to welcome home our next child and is looking forward to teaching them about music and to be there for them at every stage of life!

About Rachel

Rachel is my best friend and has changed my life in countless ways! From the first moment I met Rachel to this very day, she has continued to be the most interestingly deep, gentle, and compassionate person I know.

She started an in-home business just to raise money for this adoption, all the while being an amazing wife and mom. She loves teaching our children through art projects, singing, reading, and educational games.  And has done an amazing job with our children’s education as a homeschool mom.   I love her wit, sense of humor, and graciousness.

Rachel is excited to share her love for books, education, and snuggles with our next child.

 

Our Children

Sam is 7 and is quite the character! He has a fun imagination and loves to learn new things. His mind is a sponge and it’s amazing the things he rememberes from the books we read. His all-time favorite activity is hanging with dad.

Ben is 5,  and he is our passionate one! He is a huge charmer, and he especially loves flirting with all the people at the grocery store from the cart. He is a big snuggler and has to have his favorite blanket and stuffed animal with him wherever he goes.

Both Ben and Sam are excited to welcome home their sibling and we know they with be fantastic big brothers!

Our Home in Washington

Cozy, warm and full of laughter are the three most important things about our home. Our 4 bedroom home is located on a wonderful, family-friendly development that resides near our close friends and family. We often enjoy play dates or riding bikes on our long driveway.  Our fully fenced back yard is perfect for setting up soccer goals and playing a game.

We are so looking forward to spending the holidays with our next child! Christmas, Valentines Day, and Halloween are our favorites! The boys have enjoyed coming up with ideas of how to dress up the baby for trick or treating and having coordinated outfits!

Our Promise

We promise to wholeheartedly cherish your child and to love them unconditionally. We promise to provide for them at every stage of life and to teach them all about Jesus and how much He loves them. We will encourage them in all things that make them unique and will support them in their talents and interests. We promise to have daily snuggles, book reading, laughter, and play time.  Most importantly, we will tell them we love them every single day.
