Lauren and Mike
Hi, we’re Lauren, Mike and our daughter Avery
Thank you so for taking the time to learn more about us.
We would like to start by expressing our admiration for your strength and courage for choosing adoption. We feel honored that you would consider us to be a part of your child’s life. We respect your desire to find the best family to love and cherish your child as much as you do. We hope that through this book, you will be able to see the love we have for each other, our daughter, our families and friends, and our future child.
Here’s Our Story, by Lauren: It all started in 2000, while attending college in Florida. Our paths randomly crossed a few times until we finally had a full conversation - Mike always says that it was love at first conversation. Mike graduated a year before me and took a job near campus to wait for me to finish school. We could not wait to go out and explore the world together.
As soon as I graduated, we packed our things and headed west to California. It didn’t take long for Mike to propose. In June 2005, we got married on a beach in Florida in front of a small group of friends and family. We always wanted a family, but quickly realized it may not be very easy. That disappointment has never stopped us from living our lives.
In 2017, we adopted our beautiful little girl, Avery. She has brought so much light and love into our lives. Avery is such a blessing. Not a day goes by that we don’t think of her birth mother and how grateful we are for her and her incredible strength.
We are about to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. It has been such an adventurous life so far and we couldn’t imagine living it with anyone else.
