Real Estate Broker/General Contractor / Real Estate Agent/Design for New
Hello first of all you are special and worthy of so much love. We are Leigh and Courtney; We are hopeful adoptive parents. When our son was two weeks old, we thought for sure our family was complete. “If you want God to laugh, tell Him your plans.” We are now in a season of life and we are positive it is not time for us to close the chapter of growing our family. We are parents of a 15 year old and a 12 year old and feel we can offer the wisdom of experienced parents but still be young enough to enjoy our time and have many adventures to come. We believe adoption involves not only welcoming a baby, but also you if you choose. You will always be a part of our story. Big Hugs!!!
Adoption spoke to us when Courtney began working in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. She also floated to the postpartum unit and witnessed all sides of the adoption triad. We decided when our son was a newborn we would be well suited to be a family of four. Our daughter was almost 3 at the time. After our lives continued to change for the better including career improvements and eventually both of us working for the companies we own we decided that adding to our family would be great. That permanent surgery was reversed and failed and we knew then that was God saying you know the plan quit trying to do this alone. We listened and our hearts came back to adoption. We truly believe adoption is made to multiply love and we can’t wait to take part.
We live in a four bedroom 3 bath home on 14 acres. Three bedrooms are down stairs and we also have an office area and large kitchen island that is the hang out. We have a big back porch that we enjoy cooking, watching games and entertaining family and friends. We also have a pool that is a highlight for all kids. We live next to our best friends whose kids are close the ages of our two. We love our school system and our business partners with them frequently. We attend church and have the greatest small group with lots of young families. Courtney is the designated baby rocker at all the church events.
I would describe Leigh as caring, generous but orderly. He likes things organized. He is a wonderful dad that tries hard to support and provide for all our families needs. He is quick to help anyone and always give the benefit of the doubt.
I would describe Courtney as the fixer of all the things. She knows what we need before we ask. She lives to take care of her family and friends. Courtney is also funny and extremely motivated.
We began dating November 22, 2003. We were young and I (Courtney) was still in high school. I graduated as a junior and we married January 7 2006. We beat the odds, we recently renewed our vows while on one of our yearly trips to Nebraska. It hasn’t been easy, but we have decided to choose each other everyday. We bought our first home at 17 and 21. We found out we were expecting Haleigh one week shy of our first anniversary and Holten followed almost 3 years later. We both worked hard to be the best parents we could be. Our careers have far exceeded our expectations. We both left our corporate jobs, and we sell real estate at a firm we own and we also build homes together. We spend most everyday together and that’s fine with us. Our jobs allow us flexibility as parents to be present in our kids’ lives. We laugh a lot and it’s our favorite. Our hope is our children look at our marriage and make the commitment to find a life partner who will always love and support them.
Our advice is more of the promise we intend to uphold. We promise to love your mom with our whole hearts. We pray for servant’s hearts and want to share that quality to you. You will never need to question the amount of love and your worth. We want to provide you with many opportunities but teach grace and humility as well. We promise to give you our whole hearts!
Adoption is not about us. It’s your story (mom and baby) We are granted a space within that story and we want to uphold your wishes. We truly believe that attachment happens prior to birth and we will seek out whatever tools needed to help your baby thrive. No matter what your story is not ours to judge. Our job is to keep loving and we might not be perfect at it but we will never stop trying.
