A Letter from Taylor & Kayla
We are so thankful you are taking the time to get to know us better! We are a family of 3 excited to welcome your child into our home, and journey through the adoption experience. We strongly encourage dreams, aspirations, education, and exercise. As a fun, loving family, we are excited to share our adventures with your child. Thank you for considering us, and we look forward to hearing your story if you would like to share!
We grew up in the same city, had the same group of friends, and at one point went to the same school. Somehow, we never met in grade school, but we finally met several years later. It was like we were circling each other until God was ready for us to meet, so it was obvious to us both that we should get married. We have complete trust in each other and know we can rely on one another. Long adventures and vacations are something that we and our son, Clayton, like to do at least twice a year: going to amusement parks, the beach, skiing, hiking, and camping. We are excited to share our future adventures with your child.
Compassionate, nurturing, confident, and spirited, Kayla bears all the virtues of an incredible wife and mother. As a natural artist, she observes the world from a unique perspective and teaches me to see life differently. Kayla has an adventurous heart, craving new experiences and appreciating all the sights this world has to offer. While adventurous, she does enjoy staying home and playing video games. She’s the master of silly faces and always has Clayton and I laughing hysterically. Kayla puts the needs of her family above her own, comforting and providing for those around her. She is an excellent drawer and painter and is looking forward to sharing these gifts with your child.
Open-minded and up for anything, Taylor is always ready to take on the world. He enjoys being outdoors and hiking. From YouTube to hands-on experiences, he loves learning new things any way possible. He might be ready to take on the world, but he is also laid-back, and it is easy to be yourself around him. Taylor is an amazing father to my son, Clayton, and has been a truly wonderful role model for him. Taylor is good with his hands and can fix anything broken around the house! I love that he is musically gifted with piano, guitar, and singing. He is looking forward to sharing his musical talents with your child.
Our twelve-year-old son, Clayton, is athletic and has played several sports including soccer, baseball, gymnastics, racquetball, tennis, and swimming. Soccer is his favorite team sport so far! Clayton is active, yet on rainy days he likes playing video/computer games. He is excited to be a big brother and we know that he will be a great role model for his younger sibling!
We have a large extended family with more than 20 nieces, nephews, and cousins, so your child will have plenty of playmates. Since everyone lives close to our home, family get-togethers are frequent and we always have a blast! All of our aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, nieces, and nephews are ecstatic about your child becoming part of our family and look forward to welcoming them with open arms.
We live in a one story, 3 bedroom house that’s very open with a large fenced backyard. Our full size trampoline, tetherball set, shed, and patio don’t even take up half of the backyard, which means there is plenty of room for a playground! We already have a room painted and ready for your child!
We like that we live on a quiet cul-de-sac street where few cars drive and several police officers live, which makes it safe for kids to play outside. The zoned schools have excellent ratings, and everything we need is less than a 10-minute drive away.
We promise to provide your child with love, affection, support, and faith. We are committed to ensuring your child has all the opportunities to succeed including education, family support, and cultural experiences.
We are excited to teach your child and look forward to sharing with them all that we know and all that we learn through God. We look forward to sharing your child’s milestones with you however you feel most comfortable. We’d love to hear more about your story and your dreams for your child.

|More About Our Family|
|Our Special Interests|
During weekends, the three of us love playing racquetball, throwing a baseball or football, going to the mud pit and finding cool rocks for Clayton's collection, and walking our two Siberian Huskies. Since Taylor has a large extended family, we have several birthdays and other events we all celebrate together throughout the year. Clayton loves having five(yes five) Christmases!
Both of us having been raised in strong Christian households, it's our love for Christ that really makes this family so strong. Through prayer and our faith in the Word, God has brought us closer together, and led us here: one step closer to welcoming home our newest blessing.
|Our Musical Interest|
Kayla loves rock, classic and modern, and Taylor just enjoys anything he can sing along to. We both come from a musical background, so we share the appreciation of just about all things musical. In general, Taylor enjoys the more mellow, laid-back, feel-good music, while Kayla enjoys music that gets her motivated.
|About Our Home|
We have a one story, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house with a large fenced backyard. Our full size trampoline, tetherball set, shed, and patio don't even take up half of the backyard, which means there is plenty of room for a playground! We live on a cul-de-sac street where few cars drive, which makes it safer for kids to play outside.
|Our Child||We have one son, Clayton, who is just a joy to be around. He's fun-loving, quick-witted, and has a passion for helping others. He's always talking about how much he really wants a younger sibling; he wants someone to play with, to teach, and to stick up for. He dreams of being a geologist one day, exploring the world and finding amazing gem stones and other natural treasures. As happy as he is with our family the way it is, he could not be more excited to welcome the new addition with whom God will bless us.|
|We live in the state of . . .||Alabama. The beautiful country-side, the proximity to the ocean, the excellent educational opportunites, and its rich history really make Alabama a wonderful place to live.|
|Our Families||Taylor has a large family who we are close with and like to get together frequently. He has a sister, 2 brothers(one of which is adopted), 5 step-sisters, 5 step-brothers, and too many aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews to count. We get to see parts of Taylor's family every week because they all live nearby. Kayla has a pretty small family, but we still get to see them often. While most of her family lives in Alabama, she has one brother who lives in Virginia with his wife. We only get to see them about twice a year, but we certainly take advantage of that time. We are in no short supply of love!|
