A Letter from Steve & Erika

Dear Birthmother,

We are a loving couple from Texas who are looking forward to becoming first-time parents through adoption. We are so excited to be on this journey of adoption and are open to a child of any race or gender. We would love to speak with you and hear the hopes that you have for your child.

About Us

We met on social media and had the strongest connection from the beginning. After we married, we struggled with infertility and feel that God has brought us to adoption to grow our family.

In our down time, you can find us trying out new recipes, hiking and camping when it’s warm, watching football and baseball, having game nights with our loved ones, and playing with our two dogs in the backyard. We spend a lot of our time volunteering and giving back to the people around us. We’re so excited to share our lives with your child and to raise him or her in our loving and supportive home!

About Erika

Erika’s a loving, compassionate, determined, and hardworking person. When someone is in need, she will drop everything to help out. Her creative mind has made our house a beautiful and welcoming place for our friends and family to gather for special occasions. She enjoys cross-stitching (my grandmother taught her!), playing softball, shopping on the weekends with friends, and working with the children’s ministry at church. She loves her job as a registered nurse and shows her caring personality every minute of every day. Erika’s excited to share her love of education with your child and I know she will be the best mother.

About Steve

Steve has a loving personality that is supportive, devoted, and positive. He loves cooking dinner on the grill in the backyard, reading a book every night, and volunteering for the Boy Scouts, Relay for Life, American Cancer Society, and the local high school band. He’s a talented musician and plays the clarinet, saxophone, drums, and he also sings. Steve’s looking forward to sharing his love of music and exploring the world as a family with your child. Seeing Steve be a special education teacher at our local pre-school has shown me how wonderful of a father he is going to be.

Our Family

We both have close-knit families that only live 20 minutes away from us and Steve’s grandmother lives in the same town. They’re all so excited to add another member to the family and are looking forward to helping out with our child. Our parents are so ready to become grandparents!

We enjoy getting together with our family for every holiday. Our favorite family tradition is getting together at Steve’s parents for a cookout and fireworks on the 4th of July.

Our Faith

We both grew up in religious households and plan to raise our child the same way. Erika’s dad was a youth minister and Steve’s dad is a minister and music minister. Steve spent his whole life participating in the church. We are looking forward to sharing our love of God and church with your child.

Our Home in Texas

We live in a spacious 4 bedroom home in Texas. It has an open design filled with natural light coming through the big windows throughout the house. We’re able to fit a lot of people all at once and will have plenty of room for a child to run around and play! We have two dogs, Kimber and Beretta, who are so incredibly friendly to everyone they meet.

Our neighborhood is filled with young families and you can always find kids outside riding bikes and playing with each other. There is always something to do in our small town like attending concerts, nickel arcades, Easter egg hunts, and seeing the latest movies! We are only 15 minutes from a big city with lots of activities like sports arenas, big parks, and anything you could ever need.

Our Promise

We promise to provide your child with a loving and supportive home. We will encourage your child to pursue education so they can reach their highest potential. We will raise your child with a foundation of faith in God and will teach him or her every day how to be a loving and caring individual. We would love to stay in contact with you and are open to letters, pictures, and visits if that is what you wish. To learn more about us, please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.
