Cason and Jason
Hello! We are Cason and Jason. We met in college in 2002 and started dating in 2004. We were married in 2006 and just celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary. Our son, Gabe, is four years old and we were blessed to adopt him with the help of AIM in 2016. We are hoping to grow our family again through adoption.
Jason is a data analyst and Cason is a telecom consultant who works part time. Her part time schedule means Gabe spends more time at home and isn’t in daycare full time.
Adoption was never plan B for us. We’ve known since before we were married that Cason would not be able to have biological children so we’ve always planned on adoption to grow our family.
We both have large families that we love spending time with, especially at the holidays. We are involved in our church and have a loving and supportive church family. Jason loves to cook and we host dinner parties for our friends. We enjoy spending time together as a family visiting museums, parks, or the zoo.
We look forward to meeting you. We pray for peace for you as you explore the options for your child. Our hearts and lives are open and ready to give your child unconditional love.
Eric and Rubi
We are Eric and Rubi Salinas. Our story began when we met on a blind date in 2003. We will be celebrating our 14th wedding anniversary in June. Eric is an accountant and Rubi is an educational diagnostician. We are best friends and can tell each other anything as well as depend on one another for love and support through the good times as well as the difficult ones. We have a home full of love and it would be such a blessing for us to share it with the child the Lord has planned for us through adoption. We are praying for the mother of this child that the Lord guides her and gives her the peace and strength she needs to make the decision that is best for her and her child.
We have been wanting children since early in our marriage. We could not have children of our own because of infertility issues. We have been praying for several years for guidance on which path to take. The Lord has put it in our heart, leading us and opening the door to adopt in order to expand our family. The child will grow up in a stable home full of love, support and much laughter. But I think, most importantly, our little one will be raised in a home that loves the Lord. We are both very involved in Church where we serve in the Awana children’s ministry.
We are blessed to have a large close-knit family. We were both brought up in the same hometown and have similar upbringings. We came from loving and nurturing homes where we were encouraged to love and support each other and to not take ourselves so seriously.
We look forward to making memories with our own child taking them on vacations and camping trips to state parks or to the island in their grandparent’s RV. Traveling to Cowboys, Texans and Astro games with their 7 cousins, grandmother and aunts and uncles. We look forward to teaching them scripture and taking them to piano lessons, their sport activities or any other interests they may have a passion for. Mostly, we look forwardto just being at home with our child watching movies, reading books, listening to music, playing in the back yard and seeing them play with their dog Dallas and 2 cats Roger and Sasha.
I know we don’t know you yet but I can say that you will forever have a special place in our heart and lives. We look forward to meeting you and just want you to know that we will always let our child know how loved and special they are to you.
Sincerely, Eric & Rubi
Jake and Katie
We are Jake & Katie. We met in the Fall of 2014 and were married in December 2015. We love to travel, but also enjoy a lazy day at home.
We live in a rural area and have 2 ½ acres that we built our home on. We have 2 beautiful Golden Retrievers, a full-sized horse and mini ponies, mini donkeys, and a goat named Nolan. Jake enjoys building things out of wood, playing guitar and singing, as well as planning adventures. Katie is a nurturer and hard worker. She enjoys spending time with our animals and crafting.
Jake is a high school history teacher and a part time assistant youth pastor at a church where he leads the youth in worship music each week. Jake is one of 7 siblings, 3 are biological and 4 are adopted. His youngest siblings (ages 8, 11, and 14) are adopted from different parts of China. He grew up on a large ranch in Central Texas where he learned to love hunting, fishing, and other things a country life offers.
Katie is a commercial real estate appraiser and gets to travel all over Southeast Texas to value various properties. She grew up with a passion for people and animals and was a high school agricultural science teacher for 4 years before changing careers in an effort to have more time to grow a family. Katie has a very close relationship with her siblings, an older brother and a younger brother. Her younger brother passed away from an unknown heart condition when he was 18. His passing has been the driving force behind her family’s mission to provide heart screenings to all Texas high school student athletes. Katie volunteers with the foundation in her brother’s honor and has worked youth heart screenings all over the state.
Our free time is spent planning our next adventures, lazy nights watching Netflix, and playing with our animals. We look forward to a sweet baby to share our lives with and raise in our incredible community. Our hope is for you to know that your child will be loved and given a life of opportunities to flourish.
Wade, Cathy and Gabriel
We are Wade and Cathy. We have been married for seven years and have built a marriage based on Christian values: faith, hope and love.
We were blessed to adopt Gabriel in 2018 and are ready to grow our family once again! We both come from large families that are full of faith, love and traditions. We imagine our children going with us to church on Sundays, praying before dinner every night, playing with cousins at birthday parties, doing homework at the kitchen table, taking walks around the neighborhood, going to their first Astros’ game, and enjoying many family traditions. When visiting family in south Texas, we see our children playing on the beach at South Padre and playing Loteria with great grandmother and cousins. When visiting family in Louisiana, we see our children catching Mardi Gras beads at a parade and eating Cajun food. We are so excited about the future and becoming a family of four!
Austin and Ellen
We are Ellen and Austin! We are so excited that God has called us to grow our family through adoption. We met in fall of 2017 and fell in love fast and hard. We got married in October 2018 and life has been an adventure ever since! We love to travel and be outside. whether at the beach or in the mountains, it is our favorite!
Austin is a physical therapist and worship pastor at our church. Ellen works for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and is very involved with the youth ministry at our church. Family is very important to us and we love spending time with both of our families, whom we love very much!
We have not met you yet, but please know that we pray for you everyday. Our prayer is that God would give you peace beyond understanding and that you will know your child is already and will be loved immeasurably! We appreciate you so much and look forward to meeting and getting to know you.
Couples who have been placed!
