About us:

Hello, we are Tom and Casey.  We met and married 11 years ago in Colorado Springs, Colorado.  We now live in Waxahachie, Texas which is 30 minutes south of Dallas. We love living here and are surrounded by so many wonderful, supportive people.  We feel so fortunate to have found one another and share a beautiful life together.

My name is Tom, I am 38 years old.  I have been married to my lovely wife Casey for 11 years.  We’ve been blessed to have undertaken numerous adventures together.  We met in Colorado at the end of my time in the Army.  I was a medic and served for nearly 8 years.  After leaving the Army I finished my Bachelor’s Degree then Casey and I left Colorado.  In 2010 we traveled the world for a year living in 12 countries and 4 continents for a month at a time while sharing the hope of Jesus.  It was an incredible experience and ignited our passion for travel and the world.  We have since continued to travel all over the world and look forward to one day creating new travel memories with our children.   Once we returned to the United States we moved to Texas.  I work for a non-profit organization as a Legal Advocate serving survivors of domestic violence.  I provide support, crisis intervention and coordinate local resources to assist client when they are in need. Casey and I have had a desire to adopt long before we met.  Once we found each other we knew adoption would be a part of our lives, the question was when.

My name is Casey and I am 37 years old.  Tom and I have such a capacity to love and are so thankful you are considering us to love your child.  I have the privilege of working as a therapist.  I love walking along side of those who are hurting and without hope.  My heart has always been to stand in the gap and believe and assist my clients in receiving healing so they can move forward in life without carrying the weight of the past with them.  It is such an honor to watch healing come and lives be changed.  .As my husband mentioned previously we both had a desire to adopt long before we met.  I remember in college reading a children’s book about adoption and it was in that moment that the desire to adopt was birthed.  I knew one day that my husband and I would welcome with loving arms a child that didn’t come from us but that had grown in our hearts.

In April of 2018 after years of waiting we adopted our little miracles, twins we named  Noah and Norah.  They were born at 24 weeks gestational age and spent 4 months in the NICU.  They have overcome so much and are such fighters; today they are perfectly healthy.    They are our everything and have taught us so much about strength and perseverance. Our daughter Norah who is our oldest by a minute is kind, gentle, loving, giving, passionate, patient, independent and oh so sweet but she defiantly has a little spice to her. Our son Noah is sweet, silly, playful, determined, spontaneous, cuddly, keeps us on our toes and so loving.  We are confident they will be an incredible big brother and sister.   Since the birth of our little ones our priorities have changed a bit; we cherish each moment we have as a family.  We now enjoy going on weekly dates, getting coffee, riding bikes, taking daily walks with our family, spend lots of time playing outside, going to parks, the zoo, museums and doing whatever we can to bring a smile to our children’s faces.  Our home is filled with so much love and laughter.  As content as we are, our hearts feel there is still a missing piece and other children we are called to love.  We have been forever changed by adopting our twins and so look forward to welcoming more little ones into our family.

About Tom by Casey

Tom and I met in October of 2007 and I instantly noticed his gentleness.  Over the course of a year, we met, became great friends, started dating, got engaged and were married.  He is one of my best decisions and has continued to be my best friend throughout the years. He is a role model for our children and daily shows them how much he loves their mommy and how much he loves them.  He is a Great husband and a Great father.   He is kind, gentle, compassionate, strong, leader, wise and loves with all of his heart.  Over the last 2 years I have seen such a strength and vulnerability in the way he loves our children.  I always knew he would be a great dad but I have been blown away by his love, care and concern for his family.  I’m convinced that he is our children’s world! Our home is filled with laughter, mostly because Tom looks for constant opportunities to show them how much they are loved and demonstrates to them what having fun is all about.

About Casey by Tom

Casey is the most genuine, sincere and good person I have ever met.  Anyone who meets her can tell she is set apart and different in all the right ways. She is devoted to me and our children in such a way that I am inspired every day to be a better husband and father.  She is overflowing with patience not just for our two children but also for me as we continue to grow and learn about each other as spouses and as parents.  Casey challenges me and our children just by being the loving and amazing women she is.  I am thankful she chose me to be her husband and to be a father to our two children.  You will recognize quickly you made the best possible choice is selecting her to be a mother to your child.  I can’t think of anyone overflowing with love, devotion and wisdom then Casey.  I am thankful every day to be a part of her life and proud to be able to call myself her husband.

We’re humbled that you are considering us with the privilege of caring for your child’s life.  We are thankful for the strength and courage you’ve shown in doing what you think is best in an incredibly difficult situation.  If you choose us, we will love and cherish your child with all that we are. We will provide security, encouragement and inspiration.  We will love your child unconditionally and with all that we are and we will ensure that your child knows just how much you love them.  We promise to help them understand the sacrifice you made was purely out of love and while they have adopted parents that love them, they will always have a birth mom that loves them as well.  Thank you for your decision to do what you believe is best for your child and for considering us to be a part of that decision.  We are praying for wisdom, clear direction and peace as you make this decision.

Sincerely,

Tom & Casey
