Caleb & Rebecca
Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child. One of our goals is to ensure that you feel encouraged and comforted as we all go through this process together. We will provide your child with a loving, supportive, and safe home. We want him or her to achieve their dreams knowing that they are endlessly loved and cared for. We look forward to sharing and starting new family traditions, traveling with them, and growing our family. We are so excited for this opportunity to extend our love to your deserving child and become the family we have always dreamed to be.
We first met in 2010 and were married a year later. We both love spending time outdoors, Caleb with a fishing pole in his hand, and Rebecca with gardening. We also enjoy hiking and traveling to new places, but never take for granted quiet nights at home or spending time with those we love. Our hearts have always had a desire for adoption and, after learning we are unable to conceive, we decided to start our journey. We both are excited to travel and give your child new experiences and wonderful family memories. We look forward to family vacations, hiking, gardening, fishing, and spending warm summer days on the lake with them. We are excited to start new traditions and include them in the traditions we already have. For example, each year we put our Christmas tree up on the first snow of the year.
Caleb is one of the funniest, purest souls I've ever met. He can find humor in any situation and has kept me laughing from day one. He keeps his glass half full and loves to learn, go fishing, and spend time with friends and family. Caleb is always down for a good game night and our nephews and nieces adore him. I have always admired his imagination, creativity, and ability to interact with the kids. Caleb ensures they have fun and know that they are loved. He currently works as a Registered Nurse and will soon graduate with his graduate degree as Family Nurse Practitioner. He loves doing handy work around the house and is looking forward to teaching our child how to build/fix things. He's also excited to take them fishing, hunting, and share with them the joy of the outdoors.
Rebecca is a burst of sunshine. She has a very outgoing personality and makes friends no matter where she goes. She strives to show God's love through her kindness to others. She's one of the smartest people I know and works as an intensive care nurse while working towards her Doctorate in Nursing Practice. She loves children, is a very warm and nurturing person, and has a passion for animals. In her free time, she loves to spend time working in the garden with her green thumb and loves to travel to new places. She also loves to snuggle up with a good book and read. Rebecca looks forward to teaching our child all about flowers, baking, and sharing with them her love for reading and animals!
Caleb has a large family with three siblings, and multiple nieces and nephews. The entire family gets together quite frequently and enjoys singing by the piano, and family game nights. We are particularly close to his sister, her husband, and their two boys. Rebecca's family is smaller and so full of love! We see Rebecca's family more frequently due to how close in proximity they are to our home, and always enjoy our time together. They will all play a frequent role in our child's life with family vacations, and frequent get-togethers. We look forward to our child growing up with a close-knit family and sharing in all the love they have for one another.
Our Home in West Virginia
Our home is situated on roughly thirty acres of private space with the only neighbors being Becky's grandmother and father. Our home is three bedrooms with two and a half baths. It is all single-level living with an open floor plan, yet cozy. We already have our nursery room picked out and have started doing gender-neutral decorating. We look forward to providing our child with a space where they are safe while enjoying the great outdoors. We also have four wonderful dogs...Toby, Reese-cup, Athena, and Diana! They love to play, snuggle and are great with kids.
We promise to provide a safe, stable, and loving home for your child. We will ensure that they have the tools they need to succeed in life. We will always be supportive and encouraging as he or she reaches their potential and will cherish them above all else. We promise to share with them God's love and will provide them with the best life we can possibly give full of opportunities, support, strength, and love. We promise to share with your child their adoption story and make sure they know how loved they are. We are open to keeping in touch through letters, photos, emails, and visits as you are comfortable.

More About Our Family
Our Special Interests
We enjoy any activity that involves creating new memories and spending time together. We are major WVU fans... go eers'! As much as we enjoy being outside and adventuring, we also love quiet nights at home with our four puppy-doggies or having family game nights.
Caleb loves all things outdoors. He enjoys spending his days on his kayak fishing or being in the woods. He also enjoys working on his 85' Chevrolet truck, and on all the house projects he can find. He has built numerous things for our home, including the kitchen table! He's now building our crib for the nursery.
Rebecca loves all animals, and if I'd let her, she would bring every animal she finds home. She loves to travel to new places and driving in warm weather with the windows down, listening to music is one of her favorite things about summertime. She enjoys cleaning, baking, and gardening. She gets her green thumb from her grandmother and can get anything to grow.
We are Christians. Rebecca likes a very traditional Baptist church, and Caleb more contemporary. We find a nice compromise in finding a church with a young population to make friends, but also ensuring sound doctrine is taught. We promise to ensure that your child is taught the word of God and that biblical principles will be maintained within the home. We promise to mirror Christ's love through ourselves.
Our Musical Interest
Caleb loves, and I do mean LOVES, "outlaw" country. He enjoys listening to all the classics, but also will listen to a few "new" country artists. He also enjoys some rock music, but nothing too heavy. Rebecca's favorite music is 80s pop, but she will listen to pretty much anything as long as the artist isn't screaming at her.
More About Our Home
Some of Rebecca's fondest memories are exploring the woods around our home and her grandparent's home. Riding the four-wheeler, going outside of the fall and winter, and smelling her grandparent's wood stove in the air are such clear memories to her still. The wintertime is the perfect condition for sleigh riding and building tunnels throughout the drifts of snow. We love sitting outside on warm nights with a fire, roasting marshmallows, listening to nature, and looking up at the night sky. We look forward to providing a space where your child will be safe while enjoying the great outdoors.
Thank you so much for considering us for your child. We are looking so forward to building our family and sharing our love. Whether it is holiday traditions, learning to bake/cook, or going hiking/fishing outdoors, we are so eager to share in the joy of parenthood. We would love to have a lifelong connection with you and your loved ones if you are comfortable. We look forward to hearing from you and hope that all of your desires are met and your fears alleviated. Thank you for your time!
