Our Story

We met when we were stationed in Wyoming. It wasn’t long after we met that we fell in love and got married. We knew we wanted a big family and after 2 years, we were blessed with our son, Cayden. Due to severe complications during birth, we are unable to get pregnant again. We are so excited to grow our family through adoption and welcome your child into our home of love and support.

We treasure spending quality time together and with family. As a couple, we enjoy going to dinner and a movie for “date nights”, traveling, and working on home projects such as building and painting our own furniture. We enjoy playing card games and getting a good laugh in by watching The Office. We also love going on new adventures and exploring the beautiful local lakes!

We are excited to share our passions with your child as well as make memories together as a family!

About Jeremy by Mackenzie

Jeremy is loving, intelligent, witty, and a devoted husband and father. He has served as military police and specializes in K-9 for the United States Air Force for 10 years now. He is the handiest, hardest working man I know and is an amazing provider for our family. I’m so proud of his accomplishments, earning his education and promotions in the military.

He is an amazing role model for our son, Cayden. In his spare time, he likes to work on his Chevy C10 truck that he is rebuilding, and he enjoys woodworking. He’s a self-taught learner and likes to explore new hobbies whenever possible. I know that he is excited to teach your child how to build and work with their hands.

About Mackenzie by Jeremy

Mackenzie is an amazing wife and mother. She is a veteran, she served just over 6 years in the Air Force. Now she is a dedicated stay at home mom and as if that isn’t a job in itself, she is also a dedicated student. She possesses many qualities that I adore, compassion, empathy, and kindness to name a few.

She loves being outdoors, her favorite part about mornings are drinking coffee on the back patio while our son plays on the playset in the backyard.  She enjoys listening to music, writing, teaching Cayden new things and crafting nifty ideas she finds on Pinterest! She is excited to share her love of cooking with your child and looks forward to reading to them every night before bed. 

Our Son, Cayden

Our son Cayden is three and is our sweet, well-mannered little explorer! Most days he is running around pretending he is a dinosaur. Some of his favorite activities are cruising in his Yamaha kids car, coloring, reading books, learning and watching Bubble Guppies. Most importantly, he is excited to have a sibling!

Our Family

Our extended family is so excited to welcome another child into our family! Jeremy’s family lives in Washington State and Mackenzie’s family lives in California. Jeremy has 3 siblings and Mackenzie has 2, together we have 6 nieces and nephews. We see Mackenzie’s family on a weekly basis and make trips to visit Jeremy’s family in Washington periodically, as well as his family comes to visit us.  We love taking weekend trips to Lake Tahoe to relax, kayak and jet ski. In addition, most years we like to take a family vacation during the summer whether it is to Hawaii, San Diego or the Oregon Coast. Family is always our number one priority, we cherish all our time together. When we are not traveling together, we are talking on the phone, face timing and of course, texting!

Our Home in California

We live in a brand new, one-story, 4-bedroom home nestled in a safe neighborhood in the suburbs.  We have a 3-car garage that has ample space for our home projects and hobbies.  As well as a fenced-in backyard with a playset where Cayden, our son, and Ilay, our German Shepard, can run around and play. We live close to lots of parks with playgrounds and splash pads, great schools, and beautiful lakes.

Our Promise

We promise to provide a stable home and will love your child unconditionally. We will encourage them to be themselves and to pursue their dreams. We promise to comfort, support and walk beside them as they grow into the amazing person they were made to be. We are open to communication with you as long as you would like. We’d feel honored to welcome your child into our loving home! To learn more about us, please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.

Warmly,
