Legacy Adoption Services

Ben & Laura

Hi there! We are Ben and Laura

Thank you for taking the time to view our profile. We are excited to embark upon this journey with you. What an amazing and courageous person you must be to consider adoption.

We know this is a stressful and life changing decision, and we hope our pictures and information can offer some relief in knowing your child will be loved & cherished. We have lots of love to offer in our home, and can’t wait to share it.

We, along with our family and friends, have been praying for you and baby since we made the decision to walk the adoption path.

Our Life in Pictures

How We Met

We met through Laura’s cousin and her cousin’s husband. Ben has been best friends with Laura’s cousin since they were young kids. We sort of got set up on a blind date to audition for the Amazing Race together, and after that day Ben asked Laura out on a real first date. Two years later, 2012 we got married. Ben is a software developer and has been in the tech industry since 2003. Laura is a finance administrator, and though it’s not what she went to college for, she enjoys it. We both come from small families. Ben is the youngest of 4 children, and Laura is the middle of 3.

More About Us

About Ben, from Laura:

Ben’s best qualities are his humor and sincerity. If you’re having the most stressful, awful day, he can make you laugh your head off; when you don’t feel like laughing, his big hugs bring the best comfort. He also works hard and is a great provider.

About Laura, from Ben:

Laura is the most caring and loving spouse. She also has a great sense of humor. She is my best friend, my confidant, and my rock. She makes me the be the vest version of me.

For fun we like to play games and spend time with friends and family who live nearby. We try to go camping at least once a year, and spend lots of time at the lake during the summer. We’re big DIYers, so we usually have plenty of projects, as well. Dinner and movies are some of our favorite dates. We enjoy serving opportunities and socials with our church’s small group. We also have a dog, Murphy, whom we adore.

We live in a suburb of the DFW metroplex, and have been in our home for 3 years. Our house is an older home, which gives Ben plenty of projects to work on. Laura’s favorite thing is the giant backyard; it’s the perfect place for BBQs and summer entertaining.
