Hi, we're Grant & Lauren! We met through a mutual friend back in 2010 and were married the following year July 2011. We have three fur babies and one little girl named Harper. She was born in September 2014. We live in a large city in Texas. We enjoy spending time with family and friends. When the weather permits we enjoy camping, roasting marshmallows by the fire, hiking through woods, and swimming in the lake.
Grant was born in Texas back in 1984. Around age six Grant's family moved to California and that is where Grant lived until 2010. Grant is a paralegal with a large oil company. Grant is a wonderful husband and father and spiratual leader of our family. He is goofy, compassionate, strong, and well rounded in life. Grant's side of the family still live in California. Grant has one brother, Jared, who is married with a blended family. His parents, Richard and Donna, have been married since 1975. They visit a couple of times a year and we go there as well. His whole family have been very supportive in our decision to adopt.
Lauren is a native Texan born in 1983. She is a registered nurse for a large hospital. She has a big heart for her family, friends, and everyone around her. Lauren also loves to be spontaneous and to make the most of every moment. Though she can be serious, she can also be silly and dorky with her husband Grant. Lauren's family lie close by and they see them quite often. Lauren has two sisters that are married with children of their own. Her parents, Joaquin and Tamie, have been married since 1978. Her family is also very supportive of our decision to adopt.
Harper is a fun, energetic, and spirited little girl. She can be shy at first but then warms up pretty quickly. Harper was born in September 2014. She is excited about being a big sister. Harper enjoys singing, dancing, and playing games. She has participated in different activities like dance, soccer, gymnastics, baseball, and swim lessons. Harper has been in swim lessons since she was 18 months and will stay until she is an expert.
We have three fur babies. Sadie is a golden retriever. She is a sweet lovable dog that will sit next to you all day. Cassie is a border collie black lab mix. She loves to play fetch and run around the yard with Skylie. Skylie is our true mix. She has great pyrenees, malamute, and american bull dog, at least that is what we are told. Skylie loves playing fetch and chasing squirrels around the yard. Harper loves her fur babies so much but can't wait for a sibling.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know our family. We hope you will consider us as your adoptive family. We can only imagine how tough it will be to choose a family to raise your little one. Just know we will love him/her as if he/she were our biological child. We commend you on your decision to choose adoption and believe that this is the bravest, selfless, and hardest act. We greatly appreciate the sacrifice you are making for us. Even if you choose another family, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
