Adam & Camille

We're Adam and Camille from Nebraska. Welcome! We are honored you found us. This is us: we live in rural America, which is one of the safest, friendliest places for family. We are energetic and love sports, the arts, and camping with our two puppies, Simon and Maxwell. Our household is a place of laughter, kindness for one another, and lots of hugs (and puppy kisses)! We appreciate and respect you for considering adoption for your child.

Education We Will Provide

Adam Reading to Our Nephews

We feel a quality education can open so many doors to a child, developing their natural-born talents and giving them freedom to learn amazing things. Teaching is in our DNA. Camille's mom taught art, Adam taught nearly ten years of elementary education, and Camille currently works with college students. We have seen first-hand how children and young adults grow in confidence and thrive in a diverse group of friends, just by being given the chance to learn and participate. We both had our learning challenges growing up - Camille's was math and Adam's was history - but we both had great support from our parents and teachers to keep trying and to follow our dreams. We want to do the same for your child! Through Adam's work as a high school wrestling coach, we have many resources in the local school system, including after-school tutoring and customized learning, a computer loan program, and diverse activities like marching band, biology club, and sports. The college where Camille works has hands-on learning programs and ethnic festivals for families. Camille's employment through the college also allows any child adopted into our family a tuition-free education for four years. Through exploration, encouragement, and help along the way, your child will have a bright, meaningful future!

Fun Facts About Us:

  • Adam is a high school wrestling champion and 2-year letter winner for the University of Nebraska.
  • As a graphic designer, Camille has published several books on Nebraska wildlife and history, plus two cookbooks. She hopes to produce a children's book some day.
  • Camille is a fisherwoman, and caught a 5 lb. bass when she was only five years old.
  • Adam can impersonate Donald Duck, and can do other entertaining sound effects like a leaky faucet and a gobbling turkey. Our nieces and nephews giggle like crazy!
  • Adam is an ice cream addict. He demands ice cream at least three times a week!
  • Adam loves skiing and hits the ski slopes with his friends at least once a year.
  • As an eight-year-old, Camille competed and received 1st runner-up in the Miss Nebraska Pre-Teen Pageant.
  • Adam grew up on his parent's farm, where he enjoyed tractor rides and feeding baby calves. We hope to share farm life with a little one!
  • We both love camping, and we pick a new place to vacation every year with our puppy dogs, Simon and Maxwell.
  • Our Individual Strengths

    We Love to Laugh & Play Together!

    Camille would say that Adam is hard-working, and finishes what he starts. He is loyal to her, his friends, and family, bending over backward to help when they need a good friend. People are drawn to him for his fun sense of humor and positive outlook on life. He's big on hugs and is very comfortable around kids because he's taught elementary education and coaches wrestling. Wrestling is a sport of endurance and staying positive, win or lose. Adam will be incredibly patient with this child because he knows every kid is unique and needs individual attention.

    Adam would describe Camille as soft-spoken and kind-hearted, and she puts her family first. She can make a normal day extra special for a child because she's creative and has a great imagination. She's an excellent listener and can sense when someone is going through a difficult time, making it easy for her to help and encourage a child. Through her work at the local college, she's passionate about mentoring college students interested in art and design, and she has a way of making kids feel special.

    Our House and Neighborhood

    Our Home

    Here in rural Nebraska, we celebrate all four seasons! Your child can know the crunch of Fall leaves beneath their feet, the taste of a Winter's snowflake on their tongue, the smell of a Spring rainstorm, and the flicker of fireflies on a warm Summer's night! We feel safe here, and we want this child to know the same joys of childhood that we did growing up. Our puppies, Simon and Maxwell, are our gentle companions and make us popular with all the kids in our neighborhood. We have a wonderful church family, and through Adam's coaching, we have many friends in the community's school system.

    We live in a quaint, tree-filled college town, with access to a river and nature preserve. Our town boasts a natural history museum with a planetarium and IMAX theatre, a waterpark, and a nature barn for kids. Our college baseball team plays within blocks of our house, and we get ice cream cones after games. Our historic downtown hosts a Christmas tree lighting, Halloween parade, art in the park, and live music. We live blocks from the beautiful college campus where Camille works, and a park with a playground/splash pad, walk/bike path, and pond for feeding ducks. We own a lovely 3-bedroom, 2-bath ranch-style house on a corner property. Our kitchen, enclosed patio and backyard are where our family and friends gather for food and fun. When our nieces and nephews visit, we pitch a tent in our backyard and roast marshmallows around our fire pit.

    Our Extended Families

    Camille's Parents Refurbished a Dresser for the Baby's Room

    We believe in family, faith, and lots of love! Our entire family lives in Nebraska and we get together often for holidays and birthdays. Since we have several adoptees in our family, everyone is super supportive and extremely excited for us to be parents through adoption. Camille's parents live nearby, and this would be their first grandchild after many years of waiting. Adam's parents live close by as well, and babysit their ten grandchildren regularly.

    Our parents have been married 50 and 45 years and have shown us all the meaning of commitment to each other and to the Lord.

    Adam's Parents With Our Nieces & Nephews

    Camille's family loves the outdoors. They've taken family trips to Canada and Colorado to fish and explore. Camping, exploring, model airplane flying and stargazing with telescopes are all favorites. Camille's dad is a natural storyteller and cannot wait to take this child fishing! Her mother is a retired art teacher who would love to teach her new grandchild how to paint and draw.

    Adam is a twin and one of five brothers. They attend football games together and take all the nieces and nephews. Adam's family has an annual campout/barbecue at the family farm where he grew up. Adam's dad takes his grandchildren for tractor rides, and his mom bakes all their favorite foods.

    From Us to You

    “You’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think, and loved more than you’ll ever know.” - Winnie-the-Pooh

    We both believe this quote, by a compassionate little bear, applies to you as much as it applies to us. We have no idea what you're going through. You may not like the idea of adoption and feel alone in deciding what to do, or you're overwhelmed by all the adoptive parents to choose from. We admire your bravery for even considering adoption. Your inner-strength and instinct will be your guide, whatever you decide for you and your child. Your love for your child is everlasting and apparent. If you're still reading this, we're thrilled, because we'd like you to know our story and why we're choosing adoption to grow our family.

    Many people tell us that we'd make great parents. But our decision to become parents and actually making that happen are two very different things. We've been pregnant three times, but haven't been able to bring our babies to full term. In our careers, we've been blessed to teach, coach and mentor kids, but we've never been able to take care of and love a child of our own. That's the sad news, but that's not where our story ends. We never gave up on our dream of parenting. Instead, we grew brave and strong. We chose adoption!

    We met in 2008 at a Nebraska football game, but since we lived miles apart, dating seemed impossible. Months later, while I was attending my nephew's high school wrestling meet, there was Adam, coaching another team! And he was looking GOOD! Needless to say, we made the long-distance thing work.

    Jump forward to April 2013, when we married and started our life together here in Nebraska. We both grew up here, so we both know the value of small-town living. Our community is a place where a kid can be a kid! It's a place they can feel safe walking to and from school and playing on the playground with friends.

    Naturally, we want a child to experience all the blessings we had growing up, but above all, we want them to be generous, caring people. We were both raised as Christians and to treat others well. In our six years of married life, our faith in God has strengthened our relationship and commitment to each other. Our household is a place of kindness, dignity, patience, and most importantly, lots of hugs (and puppy kisses)! Being a child can be tough! We want to give a child confidence and security in who they are so they can follow their dreams. We will embrace who they are and what they're most passionate about - from the freckles on their nose, to their love of insects, to their ability to dance (maybe from you?) - we will love them, and thank you for it!

    So why are we choosing adoption, and why should you choose us if you're considering adoption? Because we will love them unconditionally and we'll work hard to give your child the life you've dreamt of for them. We'll give back to you in the form of photos and letters of your growing child; and, if you feel comfortable, we'd like to get to know you better via email, phone calls and visits. We will respect how you wish to communicate, and share with your child how your selfless love for them gave them the wings to fly and be the best version of themselves.

    We know you have a lot to think about. We pray for you daily, and in the words of a little bear ... “You’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think, and loved more than you’ll ever know.”
