Dear Expectant Mom And Baby,

We know that this is a scary time for you. We are scared and excited too! Thank you for taking a moment to learn about us. We hope that this page provides you with a glimpse into what kind of people we are, but more importantly what kind of family we might be for your baby. Search your hearts, be brave, and trust yourself.

Our Story

'Our Story' Image

Our story began in 1991 when Lauren was 12 and Fred was 15. We met because our childhood best friends were brother and sister. Over time, we became childhood buddies. Of course, we teased each other mercilessly! During our awkward teen years something magical happened - we developed a crush on each other! We began dating when we were 16 and 19, so it's safe to say we are childhood sweethearts. As time passed it was clear to us that we were meant to be each other's forever. We were married in 2001 and have been best friends ever since.


'Benji' Image

On June 17,2016 something magical happened! That was the day that our Benji was born. From the moment we laid eyes on him we knew that our lives had truly just begun. It is impossible to prepare for or even imagine the infinite amount of love we felt when he held him in our arms for the first time!

Since that day, every day is a new adventure with Benji. Family time is our #1 priority and is spent playing, going to community events, or just hanging out! We are lucky to have fun parks near the house. We cannot wait to add another member to the family! Benji will make a great older brother.

Family & Friends

'Family & Friends' Image

We are so very fortunate to have family in town who are very much involved in our lives. Benji gets to see his grandparents and even great-grandparents all the time!!! Our friends are also a huge part of our lives. Benji is lucky to have a bunch of "aunties" and "uncles" to love him. They are all excited to have another child to share their love with as well.

Mary Poppins (otherwise Known As Benji's Nanny)!

We are so lucky to have a lovely nanny in our lives. She is with Benji on weekdays when mommy and daddy are at work. She loves Mr. Benji so very much. She has a background in early childhood eduation so learning and fun are top priorities!

A Day In Our Lives

A little bit about our daily routine...Fred owns a small business that sells and services European cars. His father moved to the US from Austria and started this business. After Fred's dad retired, Fred took over. Lauren is a neuropsychologist and assistant professor. She works with patients that have experienced an illness or injury that affects the brain. She is also a teacher and researcher. After work nights are spent playing with Benji, going on walks, doing chores, and relaxing with the cats!

Thank You
