Ray and Brooke

image1(1)We are the West’s, Ray and Brooke,  Eve (7 years old), Luke (4 years old), and Isaac (8 months old). We have been praying about expanding our family through adoption and are ecstatic to await God’s blessings and provisions. We love to travel, and last year we spent Christmas in Mexico, a week in Florida during the summer, and in November we visited Cozumel, Grand Cayman, and Jamaica on a Disney Cruise. Our favorite things are times spent traveling with family, watching movies, playing games, worshiping, or visiting with family and friends. Our children attend a private Christian school, and enjoy dance, gymnastics, soccer, swimming, and art classes. We love to be outside walking our two dogs, at the lake, swimming, playing at the park, and riding bikes. We love and support your selfless sacrifice, and we pray for your peace during this difficult decision.




Austin and Amber


We are Austin and Amber Whitehead, and we are both school teachers. Austin teaches history at the Junior High level, and Amber teaches American Sign Language as a foreign language credit. Our students are a joy to work with, and we look forward to having our own. We are active in our church, and love our church family. We help out with children’s church a few times during the year, and enjoy being around them. We also have friends and family with young children, and we enjoy babysitting them when we can (and mainly just loving on them). We love to travel, go antique shopping, watch movies, or just hang out at home. We are looking forward to starting our family through adoption, and raising them in a loving, Christian home.





Rodney and Megan

R&M - Missing Piece

We are Rodney and Megan Friddle, and we just recently celebrated 10 years of marriage. Rodney works as a Senior Underwriter for a financial company, and Megan works as a Lab Quality and Compliance Officer for a company that conducts lab testing of all types.  We adore our dog (Magnum) and cat (Roxy), but we have been praying and dreaming of having our own family for years.  Rodney enjoys watching most sports, but especially likes to play basketball and baseball.  Rodney also really likes to hunt, fish, and spend time at the family farm.  Megan enjoys all kinds of crafts such as creating scrapbooks, cards, invitations, party decorations, diaper cakes, and unique gifts for friends/family.  Megan also enjoys excising, especially running.  We are involved in our church and are very close with our fun church family.  We have a passion for Texas Country music and attend concerts when we can.  We spend lots of time with our family and friends.  Our plan is to raise a child in a loving and nurturing, Christian home.  We admire the love and courage you have in considering adoption for your child and we would love to support you through this difficult process.




Phillip and Carissa

This is our family: Phillip, Carissa, and Eleanor. Our family has been blessed by adoption, through Inheritance Adoptions, and we are so thankful to have a close relationship with Ellie’s birth family. What a beautiful thing it will be, that both of our adopted children, will get to share in that experience with one another. Carissa is a stay-at-home mom, and Phillip is a Sales Director at tech firm in Dallas. We have been married for 7 amazing years, and are raising our daughter to know and love Jesus.DSC_7066
