Lloyd & Nedra
Hello! We are a fun loving family with so much love and joy to share. We have been together for six years and are hoping to grow our family through adoption. We believe the foundation of family consists of love, kindness, respect, honesty, and lots of laughter along the way. The opportunity to share our lives and love with a child would be the greatest gift we could ever receive.
What It Means to Become Parents
To us being a parent means the world. We a both looking forward to all the amazing memories to be made and the experiences having a child will present to us.
We are excited to share everyday moments with a child and raise them in a loving, faith-based environment with endless amounts of laughter and fun. We were both born and raised in the country, so agriculture, agronomy, and raising animals were a center of our upbringing. As parents we would also like to introduce a child into the farm life. Lloyd is a farmer that raises cattle and has acres of land to farm. We as parents would love to introduce a child into helping out in the farm, raising cattle, learning the importance of caring for animals, and how plants grow and produce.
Lloyd is looking forward to tractor rides and sporting events. Nedra is looking forward to growing a garden, baking, cooking, and also sporting events.
We want to be the kind of parents a child can talk to about anything and feel comfortable to be themselves. We can not wait to share our lives with a child!
Our Leisure Time
We are a young, active couple who find fun in any activity we are participating in. We enjoy going to concerts, sporting event, hiking, having friends and family over for cookouts. We also enjoy quality time at home; many of our Friday nights are spent in comfy clothes, while eating popcorn or pizza and watching a movie or playing board games.
Nedra enjoys arts/crafts, along with baking, cooking, gardening, hiking, and kayaking. The biggest leisure time Nedra enjoys is gardening. Her spring times consist of getting her garden ready, picking out the right variety of tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, jalapenos, and at times green beans, zucchini, and spaghetti squash plants. Nedra's favorite is picking out a variety of flowers, succulents, and greenery plants to plant around the house. Fall consists of planting mums and picking out a vast variety of pumpkins to decorate around the house.
Lloyd enjoys working and riding his dirt bike, fishing, occasionally hunting (when he has time), and always helping Nedra with her garden. Lloyd loves to go over to his grandparents' land and enjoy the wildlife. Lloyd and his grandpa have plans to stock their pond with fish for our family to enjoy a day or weekend of fishing. Lloyd enjoys playing Nerf guns with our nephews and teaching them about farming and tractors. He likes to help build and put together toys that need fixed or just work on daily "honey do’s" that Nedra needs help with. Lloyd also loves to attend Royals and Chiefs games every year.
Our Life Priorities
As a couple we have chosen a set of values that influence our decisions and life direction. Our values are: Honor God, love people, use our gifts to pursue our passions, celebrate life, and always remain faithful to our family. We highly value family! We look forward to raising our children to live by the same set of values in order to grow up to be healthy adults who can bring great change to our world. It is our desire to raise him or her with a global understanding that teaches them with opportunities to experience life to the full! We don't value things. It will not matter how fancy our cars are, or if we have the biggest TV. What will last are the times we spent as a family, laughing together, and helping our world become a better place.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a ranch-style brick farmhouse that Nedra's grandpa built with her great uncle over 70 years ago. The house has four bedrooms and is located out in the country. Our house sits on four acres with fields and pasture surrounding our house. There is plenty of room for a child to run around and play.
We have spent a lot of time updating our home, while still keeping a lot of its charm. We have enjoyed planting flowers and bushes along all the edges of the house, and starting a small raised garden.
We are 30 minutes away from a bigger community where our friends and families live. Our small town that is one mile up the street has 15 homes, along with a playground, and ball fields.
Every year our Knights of Columbus puts on a Halloween party and a Christmas party, Santa even makes a visit.
Every year we like to drive over to Jamestown and watch the fireworks along with their BBQ and dance. We also like to attend the Clyde Watermelon festival, which consist of four days of fun activities.
We are fortunate enough to have friends and family that live close so we can get together with our children and let them play together.
Our Extended Families
Our families are fun, loving, and enjoy cookouts, family gatherings, and vacations together. We live close to Nedra's parents. We spend every holiday together, as well as birthdays, anniversaries, and just get togethers. Nedra comes from a large family, so there is always something fun going on when we visit and have family over. Nedra's family always host Thanksgiving every year and have over 30+ family members, and we've started to host college students whom cannot make it home for the holidays to come and join our family. Children are the center of both of our families, and this child will be surrounded with love and laughter. Both of our families are enthusiastic and supportive to hear that we will be growing our family through adoption.
Lloyd's family lives 30 minutes away and we find time to make it over to see them, and his grandparents. His family is very hard working, loves to be outdoors, working with their horses, garden, or just sitting outside and enjoying the weather. Lloyd's dad inherited some horses when his grandpa moved to Salina, Kansas. His sisters have children of their own and they love to go out to their grandparents house to play with the horses, chickens, and donkeys. His mom loves having the grandkids out and she has them help with the chores to teach them the importance of caring for animals. His family tradition is getting together during Christmas and having the kids help pass out the presents.
