About Us

Hello! We are Derek and Casey from North Carolina! We are in between lots of state parks and great walking trails which we enjoy hikes with our dog when the weather is nice. We are foodies and love to experience different cultures through their food and, with all of the diverse restaurants near our home, we get to enjoy many different styles! We are excited to share our passions with your child and look forward to staying in touch with you through email, letters, and pictures.

We met at church but our relationship did not start for a few years. Our moms both became very sick around the same time and that is when we began talking and growing closer. Both of our mom’s passed away within the year but our connection to one another only grew stronger. We’ve been married for 4 years now! We enjoy exploring different cultures and love to try their different foods- be they at a fun local restaurant or through traveling. We also enjoy trying anything new and experiencing life together. We love going on walks and hikes around where we live with our dog Lilly, we also have multiple state parks with lots of trails for us to hike.  We have a close group of friends with which we enjoy having game nights and dinners with. We are so excited to welcome your child into our family and look forward to sharing our love of adventure and the outdoors with them!


Dear Birth Mother,

Our Promise to You

We promise to love your child and raise them to love people, to be kind, and to respect others. We are very involved in our church and promise to raise your child to have a personal relationship with Jesus. We will be there for them as they grow, support them as they learn, and will share our passions for the great outdoors and food with them. We would love to keep you up to date via letters, pictures, emails, and visits. Thank you for taking the time to consider us and learn more about who we are. We are praying for you. 

Thank you,
Casey and Derek
