Our Story

We met ten years ago while working at the same company. It didn’t take long for us to realize there was something special about our relationship. After dating for three and a half years, we were married in August of 2015. On our wedding day, we were humbled by the tremendous love we felt from our family and friends.

We have been incredibly blessed with two beautiful children, Emerson and Isla. They keep us on our toes, and we love every minute of it. It is very important to us as parents to teach our children the importance of unconditional love and acceptance of all people. Our children are the future, and we know it is our job to help guide them on the right path.

It is a dream of ours to adopt, and it would be a great honor and privilege to open our hearts and home to another child.

About Lauren & Eric (Written By Their Partner)

While Lauren is way more than a sidekick, she is the partner and sidekick I need by my side in this life, always. What am I talking about? I am HER sidekick! Lauren is a Super Mom. She loves and cares for our children like there is no tomorrow and always puts them first. Lauren has unconditional love for everyone and shows that by loving me for all that I am, even my quirks! Lauren also has a wonderful laugh and keeps positivity and laughter as critical ingredients in our lives each day. I love how much Emerson and Isla are drawn to Lauren. To understand how safe and nurtured our children feel around their mother, all you have to do is watch them interact with Lauren. My special time with Lauren typically consists of going to dinner.

Eric is my best friend; he is always there for me when I need him. One of his love languages is "Acts of Service", which he constantly demonstrates through all of the things he does for Emerson, Isla and me. Eric is a gentleman at heart and is a phenomenal partner and father. Eric has a wonderful smile that lights up his face. There is nothing better than seeing him light up while being with our children. I've loved to watch every minute of his fatherhood journey. Eric shares his love of music with our children. He teaches Emerson how to air-guitar and has regular dance parties with Isla, dancing to their favorite songs.
