Meet Mike & Laura H.
We are Mike and Laura! We are a young, fun-loving couple eager to meet you and be considered as adoptive parents for your child! You are very brave and we respect you for being so selfless in your decision of adoption. Becoming parents is something we have looked forward to and prepared for for years. We have been praying for you and this baby and we would love the chance to walk alongside you in this journey, even after your child is born.
Together, we are a perfect mix of having spontaneous humor and being down to Earth. We have always wanted to adopt. Three years of infertility led us to this adventure sooner than we had intended, but it didn’t take us long to go from “thinking” about it to all in! We are so excited to grow our family through adoption!
Our story: We met in 2009 at Kent State University, where we both graduated. We were friends for four years and dated for two before Mike proposed. We got married on February 27, 2016, and we spent our favorite day surrounded by 300 close friends and family members.
Volunteering at a summer camp for children with special needs.
Our life now: Laura is a Special Education teacher with her Master’s Degree and 7 years of experience with grades K-11. She currently works from home in anticipation of welcoming a child soon. Mike holds his Bachelor’s Degree in Interpersonal Communication and now works for PNC Bank as a Loan Support Associate. We have two fluffy cats named Kato and Ruby. They are both rescue cats and are very much loved! Our house has a neighborhood park right in the backyard, and kids are always outside playing! We are a busy family but we fill our time with each other or family and friends. We love outdoor activities – going on walks around our neighborhood, hiking, and kayaking – and usually go camping (moreso glamping) twice a year with friends. We don’t travel too frequently, but we have gone on many trips together at home and abroad. Hospitality is a big part of our lives – we regularly host gatherings of friends and family and envision our house as always open to our child’s friends.
Our community: We have attended our non-denominational Christian church for 12-13 years. We currently serve as leaders and serve in our church’s special needs ministry. We value fellowship with our friends there and have a strong support system. We will raise our child to know that God’s love for them is unconditional and that he offers grace to anyone, no matter what. We will teach them how to discover these truths on their own and help them to make their own personal decision that following Christ is worth it.
Taco Tuesday, a Hudock family tradition!
Our loved ones: Our whole family is ready to welcome the newest member and have already been buying sweet little clothes and toys. Both sides live within 30 minutes of our home and we are a part of each other’s lives. Holidays are shared with both families and full of fun traditions, including authentic Italian meals and southern comfort.
If you choose us, we vow to love this baby unconditionally, encourage their hopes and dreams, and provide for them in a safe and stable home. Thank you for the time you have taken to get a snapshot of our family.
With love and respect,
Mike & Laura
About Laura, From Mike: Laura has a warm soul. She can be very versatile with her creativity by finding new amazing ways to support individuals with disabilities and at the same time find new southern comfort food recipes. She loves holiday seasons. From finding the best pumpkin spice latte to decorating the house with all things Christmas. She continues to be an advocate to those who need one and would be an incredible mother!
About Mike, By Laura: Mike is compassionate and others-focused. He is respected by many and loves the Lord. He knows how to enjoy life and knows everything about Avengers! He plans a weekly date night, takes care of things around the house, and loves having fun! Mike has a big heart for kids and will be a wonderful dad (dad jokes & all!).
Loving life together!
