A Letter from Lucas & Camie
Hey there! We are Lucas and Camie from Nebraska! We LOVE Jesus and are very excited to enter a new season of our lives: becoming parents! After years of experiencing infertility, we feel called to adoption, and we are thrilled! We would love to welcome a child of any gender or race, as well as twins or siblings! We also look forward to building a relationship with you through photos, letters, and visits.
Our love story began when we met in college. We knew almost immediately that we were soulmates! We’ve been together for almost 6 years, and married almost 4 years! We are excited to share our family traditions with your child and also create new traditions that include your child’s culture and background. Becoming first time parents will be a joy for us!
A few of our favorite things:
- Neighborhood walks with our 2 Shih-Tzu pups, Memphis and Baker
- Our annual family vacation to Hawaii
- Watching Transformation Church sermons
- Baking homemade cookies and snuggling up on the couch for a movie on the weekends
- Grocery shopping to look for fun new foods to try
Lucas is my dream come true. He is kind, gentle, patient, intelligent, strong, protective, and handsome! He is a friend to everyone he meets, and people can’t help but smile when they’re around him! Lucas works as an elastomer engineer and is a volunteer firefighter. He loves to do projects around the house (especially outside!), and is very excited to spend afternoons playing in the backyard with our future children. Lucas has a true servant’s heart and a zest for life! Lucas is a fantastic husband and will be an outstanding father to our children.
Camie is the answer to my prayers. She is fun and spontaneous, and challenges me daily to grow in my faith. Camie loves to stay active, read the Bible, and take our dogs on walks. She runs a coaching business that she built from home specifically so she could be home with our future children. She is so excited to become a stay-at-home mom once we adopt. Whenever I am around Camie, I feel safe and loved. Her love and compassion flow into all aspects of our life and she always knows how to help. Camie is strong in her abilities, and also in her faith. All these aspects of Camie make her the beautiful wife she is, and will shine when she is a mother to our children.
Both of our families are overjoyed to welcome the child we adopt! This will be the first grandchild on both sides and are sure to have lots of love and attention from their aunts, uncles, and grandparents!
Fun Fact: We are both the oldest children in our families!
Lucas’ parents and younger brother live 2.5 hours away (his brother even lives on the same street as his parents!). We enjoy visiting them as often as we can. Camie’s parents and 3 younger siblings live 15 minutes from us. We get together weekly for yummy food and cheering on our favorite football team (Go Huskers!). We know our future child will have SO much love to lean on, from both sides of our family.
We live in a 3 bedroom ranch-style home in small town Nebraska. We have a large front yard and a fenced-in backyard ready for summer cookouts, family soccer games, and snowman building fun! Our home is less than a mile away from 2 parks, our local swimming pool, our town library, walking trails, and our local schools. There are 2 larger cities within 30 minutes, so we are only a short drive away from a variety of fun food cuisine to explore, farmer’s markets, shopping malls, and more!
We promise to be there for the little moments and the big moments throughout your child’s life. We promise to care for his or her needs, and beyond. We promise to cheer them on at every soccer game, theater performance, or any other activity they want to pursue. We promise to talk about you often and with the upmost respect and love. We promise to love your child unconditionally. And most of all, we promise to show your child the love of Christ and model an authentic walk in faith.
If you’d like, we welcome an open adoption with you! We would gladly share future contact, such as updates or photos, or even occasional visits. To learn more about us, please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.

We are a Bible-believing, Christian couple who LOVE the Lord. We strive to keep Jesus at the very center of our lives and are looking forward to sharing the life-changing love of Jesus with our children. We pray together, enjoy listening to our favorite Jesus jams playlist, going to church on Sunday, and also watching sermons from Transformation Church!
|Our Holiday Traditions|
Thanksgiving: We love spending Thanksgiving back in Lucas's hometown with his family! We drive up Wednesday night and have a big big meal on Thursday (Lucas's dad, Larry, is phenomenal at smoking a turkey)! On Friday, we like to grab some hot coffee and check out the local stores to see what we can find as well as help decorate for Christmas around the house!
Christmas: We alternate Christmas's every year between Lucas's family and Camie's family. On years we are with Lucas's family, we enjoy Christmas Eve service at their town church, followed by a yummy meal, and lots of laughter around the Christmas tree while we open presents.
On years we are with Camie's family, we spend Christmas in Hawaii! Camie's mom loves to pack Christmas lights and our stockings to decorate the condo overlooking the ocean! On Christmas eve we enjoy a church service at a local resort followed by secret Santa gifts on Christmas morning!
New Years: We love spending New Years in Hawaii with Camie's family! Every New Year's Eve there is a beautiful firework show on the beach and it is a truly surreal experience! If it is Lucas's family's year for Christmas, we will fly out after celebrating Christmas with his side of the family! If it is Camie's family's year for Christmas, we spend both Christmas and New Years in Hawaii!
|Our Hopes and Prayers for Your Child (or Children!)|
We hope and pray that your child will grow up to know how cherished, important, and loved they are. We pray that the Lord guides us in raising your child to be confident in who they are, where they came from, and their beautiful story. We want to raise your child to know they can do anything and be anything the Lord is calling them to. The word says that through Christ, everything is possible, and we want your child to believe this too.
