Dear Birthmother,

We know it is the unconditional love for your baby that has led you to consider adoption, and we are in awe of the amount of strength, courage, and selflessness it has taken to get this far. Along with that bravery, we know you are fighting a lot of fear and uncertainty with this process.

Please know that if you grant us the honor and blessing of adopting your baby, it is with absolute certainty that we can say they will be loved beyond measure and adored by everyone in our lives. Your baby will grow up spending time with family, playing every game we can find, camping, having cousins weekends, and exploring the world around us. We can promise they will never want for anything and will be given every opportunity we can provide.

We admire you so much for looking into adoption and for considering us to be a part of the miracle that will be your baby’s life. We hope you are able to make a decision that brings you peace, and we wish you nothing but the best in making your choice.


About Us

We live in Nebraska, and Nevin was born in a small town not far from where we live now. Tara was born in Missouri but lived in Ohio for most of her childhood and moved to Nebraska her freshman year of high school. We met in 2012 through an online site when we were both logging on to delete our profiles. The funny thing is that we were only living a few blocks from each other at the time. We have grown together ever since through our love of exploring, reading, camping, family, and just spending time together. Nevin works for a nationwide company designing and programming the electrical side of automated production lines. Tara is currently working as an office professional and owns her own small business selling home décor and etched glass, but her dream job is to be a stay-at-home mom and raise her kids like her mom raised her.


Our Home

We live at the end of a cul-de-sac in a split-level home with five bedrooms, two bathrooms, and lots of space to play. It has a huge, fenced-in backyard with trees and a walking path right behind it. We have a dog and two cats that LOVE being outside as soon as their paws won’t freeze. The cul-de-sac is perfect for little ones since the traffic is limited, and it’s often a racetrack for our neighbors’ young kids. We have a great elementary school seven blocks away, and the upper schools are also on our side of town. We have a waterpark and splash pad not too far away as well as some man-made white-water rapids to boogie board on in the future!

Our Extended Family

We both come from very large families. A lot of Tara’s summers were spent with her mom’s side of the family camping or spending a week at Grandma and Grandpa’s house with cousins. Tara has three younger brothers; one is married, and we just welcomed their son as the first little on Tara’s side of the family.

Nevin is the youngest of his siblings, a brother and two sisters. Between all of them, there are seven nieces and nephews ranging from 6 to 16 years old. We try to get the cousins together every summer for a “cousins week” at our house, where we make fun food, play games, and go on geocaching adventures. The nieces and nephews are the center of Tara’s world; she will drop everything to hang out with them. Nevin is the nephews’ favorite because he has ALL the Legos to play with.


What Led Us To Adoption

One of the first things we agreed on while planning our future was that we wanted kids. We knew from the start this might not happen “normally,” or at least the way we are taught is normal, so we also agreed on the possibility of growing our family through the honor and blessing of adoption. After seven years of trying to bring our dreams of having a family into reality, we are ready to move forward and jump eagerly into the world of adoption. There have been bumps along the road since this is a new process to us and our families, but with each step we complete and the more we learn, the more excited we get!
