A Letter from Sean & Gayla
Hello from Texas!
Our hearts and home are full of love, and we are looking forward to expanding our family through adoption! We will provide your child with a strong education, financial stability, and a faith-based household.
We are dedicated parents and would cherish the opportunity to share our love with your child through adoption. We hope to keep an open relationship with you, including phone calls, emails, visits, and ongoing communication. We look forward to learning more about you!
We grew up together and started dating when we were 16. After we graduated from different colleges, we got married. We have always hoped for a large family and through our pregnancy challenges, we have been blessed with two children. We have always been open to adding to our family with a child through adoption, and we are ready to adopt!
We like to spend our time being active, walking our dog, riding bikes, or swimming. As a family, we like to take family vacations to national parks or beautiful locations where we can hike and relax. We also volunteer together in the community, at church, and on mission trips. We all participate in church, including teaching Bible classes, mentoring youth, and life groups.
Sean is naturally kind, patient, calm, and funny. I have watched him coach soccer and mentor Boy Scouts for years with enthusiasm. Sean is steady and unwavering in his commitment to his family. Sean is open to any adventure our family seeks. He is very afraid of heights, yet spent a week climbing a mountain because our son wanted to explore with his dad.
Sean likes to ride bikes, work on classic cars, and camp with our kids. Sean is generous with those in need and is a willing mentor. He is a loving father and is looking forward to sharing our lives with another child.
Gayla is a very kind and loving person. She has an endless supply of love, which she freely shares. She is always willing to step in and help. She is up to almost any challenge and has a genuine desire to make each life she touches a little brighter.
Gayla is incredibly bright and analytical. She is a planner, never missing an opportunity to fill our family time with fun. Gayla loves to bake, sew, read, listen to music, and enjoys attending concerts with the family. She is always staying active by hiking, walking around our neighborhood, and doing Pilates. My wife is an amazing mother and I am looking forward to seeing her raise another little one.
Sean’s mom and brother both live nearby. Gayla’s two brothers live nearby, and her sister has a house here and in Florida, splitting time between them. We see our families regularly and especially on holidays.
TRADITIONS: We love gathering for family traditions; opening Christmas presents with our extended family, decorating our home for the holidays, picking out Halloween costumes, volunteering at church for Easter, taking a family vacation each year, having living room dance parties, and movie nights. We look forward to including your child in our family traditions, as well as creating new ones!
We have two children. Davis, 18, is studying engineering at a nearby University. He frequently comes home on the weekends. He is a kind young man and loves kids. He will be a wonderful big brother.
Our daughter Sophie is 12, and has a love for reading, playing the French horn, and is involved in Boy Scouts. She loves volunteering in
the church nursery and is so excited to welcome a child into our family!
We live in the suburbs of the same town we both grew up in. Our home has 4 bedrooms, a fun playroom, a yard, and a pool. We live close to a neighborhood park and are within walking distance of great schools. We can be active with lots of sports and outdoor activities for both adults and kids.
We promise to unconditionally love, support, and protect your child. We will share our Christian beliefs with your child and will always do our best to provide him or her with strong examples of Christ’s kindness, love, and generosity of spirit.
We believe in education and will do our best to provide your child with an education that will allow them to grow with self-assurance. We also believe children need the freedom to explore their interests, and we will always encourage them to express themselves as individuals. As parents, we will be front and center to cheer them on, and participate in their lives.

|We live in the state of...|
We love living in Texas because of the kindness and hospitality of the friendly people. We love this particular area because there are so many opportunities for good education and great relationships. Education is very important to us and ultimately that is the reason we chose to live in this area. The area and schools are culturally diverse and our kids have close friends of different nationalities. The schools offer many opportunities for expanded education in languages, art, music, science, medicine, and sports. It allows kids to have a broad range of choices for participation and expanded learning. We live near a large city that provides exposure to art, museums, theater, and the best medical facilities.
