Hello! 

We’re Korry and Lorna. 

We met on a blind date in 2008 after being introduced by two family members who knew we would be perfect for each other. We started texting, became best friends, and quickly knew we couldn’t live the rest of our lives without one another. Korry proposed on his birthday in 2009 on the same park swing on which we had swung for hours talking on our very first date. 

We have always dreamt of having a bigger family, but the timing has never been right between education, careers, and life in general. We are pursuing adoption after learning that it’s not medically safe for us to conceive. We appreciate your willingness to consider helping our dream come to life.

Financial Support

Expectant mothers who choose to make an adoption plan may qualify for some level of financial assistance during their pregnancy. However, each person's situation and specific needs are different. Your adoption social worker can help you determine what level of assistance you qualify for and deserve. Many expectant mothers qualify for financial assistance to cover basic pregnancy and living expenses, including but not limited to - transportation reimbursement, utility assistance for phone, water, and electricity/gas, maternity clothing and supplements, etc.

FAQ’s about placing a baby for Adoption

I'm considering giving my baby up for adoption. How much does that cost?

It won't cost you anything. If you choose to place your baby for adoption, all of your medical and legal fees will be covered and you may be eligible for financial assistance with other pregnancy-related expenses.

I'm experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and don't know who the birth father is. Can I still place my baby for adoption?

Yes. Even if you don’t know the identity of the birth father, you can still choose to make an adoption plan. However, every adoption situation is different. The adoption social worker you’re assigned to will get to know you and your story first, and then guide you through the process accordingly.

When is the right time to talk with an adoption professional?

You can make an adoption plan at any point in your pregnancy, even after the baby has been born. But, it's important to start the process as early in your pregnancy as possible. Connecting with those resources will allow you to gain access to important medical services, including prenatal care, to help ensure a healthy pregnancy.

When I create an adoption plan, will I get to choose who is in the room with me during delivery?

One aspect of your adoption plan is the "Hospital Plan" an outline of how you'd like your hospital stay and delivery to go. You can craft this on your own or with the help of your adoption social worker. But everything is up to you. You’ll be able to choose who comes to the hospital with you, who is in the room with you during delivery, and how much time you’d like to spend with the baby before signing the final papers.

How much contact will I have with the adoptive family after I place my baby with them?

As part of your adoption plan, you'll determine whether or not you’d like to have an open or closed adoption or something in between. Open adoptions may include phone calls, messaging (via social media, email, or text), and/or periodic visits each year. Closed adoptions may include no contact at all or annual updates provided to the birth parent(s) by the adoptive family. Each post-adoption relationship is different and can vary based on what an expectant mother chooses in her adoption plan.

FX Sunday

06/09/2024

Today was FX Sunday -- or Family Experience Sunday -- at church. On FX Sundays, "kids take their parents to church." They're loud, messy, and full of fun. Today ended with confetti and evidently I picked the perfect seat. We're so grateful to attend a church that values the next generation and wants to point kiddos in the right direction. It takes a village to raise a child and it's wonderful that we not only have an unbelievable family support system but an outstanding church family in place as well.

Memorial Day 2024

05/27/2024

The last day of vacation before going back to work. The first long run after an extended break, and arguably one of my hardest yet for the same reason. As I'm running along -- lost in my thoughts and thinking about how hard it is going to be to get back into a "perfect" daily routine again -- I come across this flag in a cornfield by a cemetery on a back country road... and remember that today is Memorial Day. As tough as today's run was, I'm reminded that those who served in the armed forces must have went through something much tougher. Thank you to all who served. God bless the USA, indeed. --lorna

Small Town Morning

Looks like we're blessed with another beautiful day! One of my favorite parts of being an early riser is catching the sunrise on Sunday mornings against the skyline of our small town while the church bells ring. ❤️ --lorna

ObiWan

06/08/2024

Our sweet ObiWan got his summer haircut today, and all the excitement promptly required taking a major nap once he got back home. We're firm believers that everyone should experience the extreme confidence that he experiences when comes out of the groomer at least once in their life. He struts his stuff and really thinks he is something special! His fur sister Cami was pretty excited to see him when he came home, too. ❤️

Ketchikan, Alaska

Saw the amazing Tongass National Rainforest by way of foot today in beautiful Ketchikan; it REALLY made this outdoor adventure gal's heart smile! We next sat down to an old school seafood boil with some life-changing, fresh-caught Alaskan crab, mussels, clams, and shrimp. Today has been one of those days that you definitely would not mind living over again. 🙂 --lorna

Traversed the Coastal Mountains through the White Trail Pass today. We've always heard that Alaska is beautiful but there truly are no words to describe it. It's just something you have to experience for yourself. It is nothing short of breathtaking! ❤️

Tracy Arm Fjord, Alaska

05/21/2024

Today we peeped a few baby icebergs and one ginormous glacier. Saw several whale spouts, a few whale tails, and what appeared to be a whale body part or two as they were coming up for air. Korry even saw a few goats, a bear, and an eagle in the mountains through his binoculars. An amazing day overall. ❤️

Me and my beautiful mother on Mother's Day! She's definitely a keeper. She's helped shape me into the woman I am today. I hope to be half the mother she is. ❤️ --lorna

Spring is in the Air!

There's just something about this time of year! We love the sunshine and fresh air; so nice to get outside after being cooped up indoors. The flower beds, yard, and front stoop are coming along nicely. ❤️

Beautiful Day for a Parade

05/04/2024

Today I had the pleasure of watching Korry do something he loves. He genuinely enjoys bringing smiles to the children's faces as his club wizzes by, doing various formations for the crowd and bringing attention to his club's worthy cause. He could certainly have a worse hobby. I'm very proud to call him mine. He's a keeper, indeed. ❤️ --lorna

Trivia Night

05/12/2024

We had a nice Saturday evening out with friends yesterday -- a dinner date and trivia night fundraiser for our church's teen youth group mission trip to Puerto Rico. Amazingly, team "Useless Knowledge" came in first place!! Rather intimidating to know we have a title to defend for next time. 🙂

Total Eclipse of 2024

04/11/2024

An experience of a lifetime! The change of the wind pattern, the drop of the temperature, the absence of sound. To experience total darkness while surrounded by four generations of loved ones. We went to my family's farm and had a hog roast, played a few card games, shared a few laughs -- but most importantly, took the time to slow down and just be together. The only thing missing was the child. Attached is a picture of the farm during the eclipse. Spectacular! ❤️ --lorna
