A Letter from Spenser & Precious

Greetings from Nebraska! We make it a priority to fill our lives with experiences and meaningful relationships through travel, two supportive families, and a local neighborhood and church community. The Lord has put adoption on our hearts and we can’t wait! This deep priority will extend to loving you and learning about what you want for your child’s future.

About Us

We’ve been married for over 8 years and look forward to sharing our passions and hobbies with a child!

Together we love:
• Cooking together and hosting friends and family at our home.
• Traveling all over the country (and world!).
• Summers on our front porch talking with our neighbors (which often includes wonderful food and fellowship!).
• Winters at home when we cozy up to read books, play games, and watch movies.

About Precious

I am a Human Resources Director and love working with people, businesses, and nonprofit organizations!

According to Spenser: Precious’ sincerity and the depth of her compassion and saint’s heart for others continues to surprise me to this day. She is strong in her convictions with the bravery and strength to back them up. Precious offers her time and talents to invest in her community, to stay active, and serve those around her.

Precious Enjoys:

• Traveling
• Hiking/Biking/Yoga
• Reading
• Eating great food
• Volunteering in the community

About Spenser

I am a Medical Physicist who specializes in radiation treatment for cancer patients at our local hospital.

According to Precious: Spenser is caring, kind, has a strong sense of justice, stands up for the weak, and fights for the voiceless. I know he will help our child to be strong and seek justice in our world through kindness and love. Spenser also has a heart for young people and volunteers at our church, teaching high school classes.

Spenser Enjoys:

• Learning anything related to science and truth
• Traveling
• Gardening
• Running

Our Family

Our two families are supportive, tight-knit, and diverse in background and experience. Some of our closest friends are our siblings. Spenser is the youngest of three, with three nephews and one niece. We see them all at least twice a year in Minnesota and New Mexico. Precious is the oldest of five, with three brothers and one sister, and three nephews. We also see them multiple times a year in Florida.

We’re so excited to share holiday traditions at the family cabin, situated on 150 acres of farmland with cows, horses, a river, and spring. Spenser’s family often congregates in New Mexico, and traditions always consist of good food and boisterous conversation.

We are blessed by our families. They are both incredibly supportive and very excited about our adoption journey.

Our Home in the Midwest

We live in the heart of a diverse city in Nebraska surrounded by wonderful neighbors and community! Our 3 bedroom home was built in 1905. Spenser has been busy with his garden making it a visual oasis for people who walk by. Spenser recently donated a garden plot to the daycare next door, and the older children in the daycare, along with their teacher, help us care for the garden–this year they planted tomatoes and sunflowers. It will be a joy to plant a garden with our child one day, picking flowers and fresh vegetables together!

We could not have asked for a more beautiful community of people. We love our home. We have a large backyard, a walking trail in the neighborhood, and a public playground. Our central location in the city gives us access to good schools, museums, and stellar healthcare.

Our favorite things are summer evenings on the porch and fellowship over warm, cozy meals during the winter.

Our Promise to You...

We promise to provide your child with a home filled with unconditional love from two dedicated parents. They will also be loved by our two supportive extended families and a diverse local community.

We promise to:

• Raise him or her with the love and grace that Christ shows us daily.
• Honor the level of relationship you want with us and your child.
• Encourage deep connections with family and friends.
• Provide opportunities for a good education and support this child in their future dreams and goals.

Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child. We want you to know that you would always hold a special place in our hearts. To learn more or talk with us, please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.

More About Our Family
Our Special Interests

Spenser is quite the gardener and cook. He specializes in homemade Mexican (thanks to his Texan roots) and Asian cuisines. When friends hear that Spenser is cooking, they get excited because it's always delicious. Spenser also enjoys running, podcasts, and video games.

Precious loves staying active with travelling, bike riding, hiking, and yoga. In her down time she also enjoys reading a good book or listening to podcasts on current events.

While we truly enjoy traveling, we also really love being at home. At home we enjoy catching up with friends over dinner, hiking at our local forest, biking on the neighborhood trail, and occasionally going to the movies on a cold wintry evening.

Our Faith

We are grateful to be a part of a great Christian community close to our home. Spenser volunteers his time teaching high school students on Wednesday nights and Precious volunteers with the church's Fair Trade Market - a ministry that supports and honors artisans from all around the world. We are humbled by the support and love of our Church community.

How We Grew Up

When discussing things we're excited about doing with a child, we can't help but reflect on our own childhoods. Our childhoods were very different, but also had strands of familiarity especially when it came to faith and family.

Spenser was born, and spent his early years, in Papua New Guinea. His parents were missionaries there and Spenser was the youngest of four children. At age three, Spenser moved with his family back to the States and eventually spent most of his childhood in Texas. Spenser played the tuba throughout school and spent most of his childhood playing with neighborhood kids, and travelling with his missionary parents during the summers.

Precious was born and raised in Florida with her four younger siblings. All of Precious' siblings remain close friends to this day. Precious' childhood memories are full of outdoor adventures, lots of pool time, beach trips, and travel with her family. Precious' parents are incredibly generous and hospitable and it was common to have multi generations in the house with grandparents, great grandparents, extended family and/or friends staying in the household - everyday was an adventure!

3 Things We Love About Where We Live

1. Access to great city parks and trails. We have several parks and a trail within walking distance from our home, plus a fantastic zoo and local forest just a few minutes away.

2. The best food! Our city is a melting pot of cultures and with that comes amazing food and experiences.

3. We live in a wonderful bustling city with all the perks of urban living - wonderful schools, great medical facilities, diverse communities, churches, community gardens, etc. But it also has the feel of a small town where many people know each other and the community feels close and tight-knit.

In Closing

Our desire to grow our family through open adoption started at the beginning of our relationship, over 7 years ago. We pray for you daily and the decision you are making for your child. There are so many things we’re excited to share with a child: the beauty of nature, family (lots of future cousins!), story time, singing, travel, and dinners as a family. We promise to welcome a child into a loving home, supported by faith in Jesus, family, and community. We also look forward to knowing you and respecting the level of openness you want in the future.
