Trevor & Autumn

Hi there!

Thank you for taking the time to view our profile! We understand that the decision to place your child for adoption is not an easy one, and we want to assure you that we will always hold you in high regard. We recognize the strength and bravery it takes to make this choice, and we will never take it for granted. Your decision to give your child the opportunity to live their best life is something we deeply respect and admire.

Our own love story is one that feels like it was written in the pages of a book. We met on the dating app Tinder, of all places. Trevor, an active duty Airman in the Airforce stationed in South Korea, paid the extra fee to change his zip code to Rapid City, South Dakota, where Autumn was working as a nurse. We matched, and from that moment on, our lives became intertwined. Trevor is now an instructor for the Federal Aviation Administration, and Autumn is not only still a nurse but also a business owner.

As our love grew, so did our desire to expand our family. Unfortunately, we received news that we couldn’t have another child. Autumn was told that conceiving a child would be nearly impossible. However, through the blessings of God, we were able to have a baby boy. The birth was complicated, and both Autumn and the baby faced serious risks. We were advised that another pregnancy would be life-threatening. While we are incredibly grateful for the child we were able to have, we are saddened by the fact that we won’t have the chance to have another biological child.

Our lives as parents revolve around our son, who is now five years old. We are fully committed to being loving, attentive, and involved parents. Our days are filled with activities like gymnastics and tee-ball practices, parent-teacher conferences, school festivities, and church. We are fortunate to have supportive grandparents and aunts who live nearby and actively participate in our family gatherings and events. Our son frequently asks for a sibling, and he is overjoyed that we have reached this stage in the adoption process. If we are chosen to be parents to your child, we promise to provide them with honesty, openness, and a life filled with love, guidance, and fun. We also hope that you may want to be a part of their life.

After learning about the benefits, we have come to embrace the idea of an open adoption. We believe in open dialogue and building healthy boundaries that will allow us to understand each other and build trust. We want to provide your child with a sense of connection and self-worth by giving them access to information about their family history, identity, and background. We believe that an open adoption will answer the many questions that adoptive children often have and help them develop a strong sense of self.

We find inspiration in the words of Isaiah 1:17, which encourages us to seek justice and defend the cause of orphans. We also hold onto the wisdom of Proverbs 22:6, which reminds us to start our children on the right path so that they will continue on it throughout their lives. Our most important promise to you is that any child placed with us will never have a shortage of love. We are beyond grateful that you have chosen us, and we are excited to embark on this journey together.

Autumn, Trevor & Cohen
