A Letter from Luke & Christy
We are an active, fun‐loving, and devoted Christian couple who loves Jesus, each other, and our beautiful family. We are looking forward to growing our family again through the gift of open adoption. We are honored that you are taking the time to learn more about us! Having Christy be a stay-at-home mother allows us to provide a warm, caring, flexible, and creative home for your child where every little need will be met. We would love to meet you and learn about the desires you have for your child!
We met each other over twelve years ago and have been married for over nine years. We are confident that God has placed the gift of adoption in our hearts after facing five miscarriages. Over four years ago, we welcomed our daughter, Isabella, into our family through open adoption and have had a wonderful experience getting to know Isabella’s birthmother through phone calls, texts, occasional visits, pictures, and letters.
We treasure spending quality time with each other as a couple and family. As a couple, we love going out on “date nights” for dinner and a movie, hanging out with our friends and neighbors, attending our bible study, and relaxing with one another during the evenings with Luke’s famous homemade popcorn. We enjoy being active by biking, playing board and card games, going to amusement parks, and doing household projects. We’re always up for new adventures and love to do just about anything active!
Christy is loving, compassionate, nurturing, and hardworking. Before welcoming Isabella into our home, she was an Assistant Children’s Ministry Director at our church. In her free time, she enjoys being active by running, decorating our home, serving others in our neighborhood and church, and spending time with friends.
She is a wonderful wife, an excellent homemaker, and an amazing, hands‐on, stay-at-home mother who generously gives of her time. It brings joy to my heart watching Christy and Isabella interact, and it provides a clear picture of who Christy is as a mother. She has so much love to give, and any child welcomed into our home will be cared for and receive unconditional love.
Luke is a loving, loyal, easy‐going, and devoted husband and father. He’s an amazing Head Cross Country and Track/Field College Coach and excels with excellence in providing for our family. Luke is the handiest, hard-working men I know and will do just about anything for our family.
What I love most about Luke is his respectful and caring heart towards our family and whomever he comes into contact with. Whether it’s helping out with dinner, household chores, or projects at home, he graciously gives of his time. Luke is an incredible Dad, and his love for our daughter is so evident. He enjoys the outdoors and being active through coaching, hunting, running, and playing various sports throughout the year.
Isabella is a very sweet, gentle, kind, giving, and smart four-year-old girl. It brings so much joy to our hearts hearing her always desiring to pray for “our birthmother and baby brother/sister.” We are looking forward to sharing this precious memory and are confident Isabella will shine God’s light onto your child through her loving personality and contagious smile. We are confident that she will be an amazing big sister and is so excited to have a baby brother or sister to play with and love on.
We live in a safe, friendly, and family‐oriented neighborhood located on a quiet cul-de-sac. Our cozy, comfortable, one-story home has three bedrooms with a nice big backyard to enjoy dinner and fellowship with family and friends throughout the year. There are lots of parks and swimming pools nearby. We are excited to share some of our favorite holiday traditions with your child by painting pumpkins, baking Christmas cookies, eating cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning and listening to Dad read the Christmas Story, coloring Easter Eggs together, and eating delicious meals and fun activities on 4th of July and Thanksgiving.
Our extended family play a significant part in our lives and are very excited for us to adopt again! We have a wonderful family and are blessed to each have loving parents.
Rooted in unconditional love and intentionality, we are committed to raising your child in a fun-loving, caring, supportive, and encouraging stable home. Our desire is to raise your child knowing his or her unique and beautiful story. We will also provide every opportunity that we can for your child to grow and develop his or her own interests, passions, and talents. Lastly, by sharing Christ’s love through our words and actions, it’s our desire to raise your child to know and love God passionately and cherish him/her every day of our lives. We are open to sharing photos, letters, and visits if you wish.

|More About Our Family|
Some of our favorite things to do as a family are going to the multiple parks and splash pads in our town, pool, zoo, water parks, sporting events, and having family movie nights. Whether it's running around the house while listening and dancing to music, being goofy by rolling around on the floor and tickling one another or even having family tea parties, we love and treasure it all! Luke's collegiate head coaching job is very flexible and allows him to set his own hours, which gives us the opportunity to take advantage of doing some of our favorite things together as a family whenever we would like to! His job also allows us to enjoy extra time together throughout the summer where we enjoy taking family vacations and traveling to spend time with our extended family.
Having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and accepting Him as our Lord and Savior is most important in our individual lives and is truly the framework of our family. Though we are not perfect, we greatly desire and seek to live a life to glorify God and share His love and grace to others and our family through our actions. It's also important for us to spend quiet time with God individually and be a part of a couple's Bible study group. Being a part of our church community and serving others is very important to us. We are actively involved in serving in the children's department and love sharing Christ's love with the children. Our church family plays a significant part in our lives. They are very supportive and excited for us to adopt again.
|Our Musical Interest|
Music is a big part of who we are and is incorporated throughout our daily lives. Even though we enjoy listening to a variety of music genres including rock, contemporary, and country music, we love contemporary Christian music. Creating an uplifting and encouraging atmosphere is very important to us, and one way we do this in our home is by listening to music. We believe one-way children and adults can develop mentally, cognitively, emotionally, and spiritually is through music, and we love to incorporate this into our everyday lives. We also cannot forget how the girls in our family love to belt out and sing to have fun too!
It is very important to us, and we desire greatly, to raise children in a home atmosphere. We feel very blessed to be given that opportunity as Christy will continue to be a stay-at-home mother. She currently watches another family's child, but plans to take a break from caring for other children until your child is at least one year old or older.
Our four-year-old daughter Isabella loves playing with her stuffed animals, baby dolls, and dress up clothes. She also loves reading books and having books read to her, playing outside, singing and dancing, cooking with Mommy, and playing with her lovable and super friendly cat. She loves to help around the house with anything and everything. She is very excited and cannot wait to become a big sister!
