Carl & Laura


Our names are Laura and Carl and our son’s name is Nicholas.  We have great appreciation for the courage that it may take as you consider making an adoption plan for yourself and for your child.  If adoption is what you are considering than please know that your child will be loved unconditionally and have the best opportunities that life has to offer with us.

We have been married for almost 10 years and live in the suburbs of Richmond, VA.  Nicholas is five years old and looks forward to being a big brother soon.  We have always wanted two children but unfortunately after Nicholas was born we had five miscarriages trying to have another.  Having family members who have adopted, we have always considered this an option and we are very excited to grow our family this way.  We look forward to the day we can bring a little one home and make our family complete!

We live in a great neighborhood that has very friendly neighbors who are outside like us all the time either walking their dogs, exercising, doing yard work, shooting basketball, or simply talking to one another.  We also enjoy going for bike rides, drawing with sidewalk chalk with Nicholas, taking walks, and even jumping on our trampoline in our backyard!  We are very fortunate in that both our parents live no more than about 2 ½ hours away.  Carl’s parents own a lake house on Lake Gaston where we like to spend weekends enjoying boat rides, fishing, and splashing around in the water.  Laura’s side of the family is more of the beach going type and often goes to Nags Head where we enjoy making sand castles, digging for sand crabs, and jumping in the waves!  We are very close to our family and try to see them as much as possible.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know a bit about us.  We wish you peace, comfort, and hopefulness in this difficult time.
