Casie and Clay


Greetings from Indiana! We are Team Claysie (otherwise known as Clay & Casie.) We first met in high school and yes, we even went to prom together. After some “on again, off again” dating we decided to stay “on” permanently when we got married in 2004. Clay was a pastor for over 10 years and now owns a CrossFit gym. Casie is a trauma nurse practitioner at a large hospital. We also share our home with Greco, our cute little Yorkie and Sandy, Casie’s mom, who is excited to become a grandma for the first time! We waited a while to try and start our own family, but for several years, we struggled with infertility. From the very beginning, our hearts were open to adoption, whether we had biological children or not. After some unsuccessful treatments for infertility, we felt called to move forward with adoption instead.

Casie and Clay are recipients of a Family Building Financial Grant for adoption and matched with a baby girl, Remy, in March 2019!

“We are so grateful to the Life Foundation for helping make our dream of becoming parents a reality.”

When we found out that the next step was IVF, we thought our dreams were shattered
