Lauren met their baby girl during a trip to Uganda, and that first meeting turned into Willa joining their family forever. Tune in to the show to hear more of this emotional adoption story.
Lauren said, “My mom is actually adopted. I just thought it was really cool. And we had talked about it off and on, but it wasn’t something that we’d sat down and had a full-on adoption conversation.”
“I was in Uganda in 2016, and I had a picture of one of the babies there, and I had shared it on social media,” she continued. “And when I finally got to FaceTime (Thomas) that night, I was telling him her story, ‘Babe, we know so many people who are trying to adopt right now, and this little girl needs a forever home.’”

At the time, she didn’t know who should adopt Willa, but she knew that she and her country crooner husband would play a fundamental part in finding the child home.
“I was so moved,” Akins said. “The second I touched her, it was electric. I was like, ‘Oh, this little girl has just taken my heart.’ And I was like, ‘Honey, we’ve got to find her forever home. Like, I know that’s why I’m here — to get this girl to her home.’”
Akins recently shared a photo of her child on birthday with the caption, “Happy birthday @loveoneint ??? to celebrate-we launched some new merch and it’s soooo pretty and springy colors???☀️? go to loveonestore.com to get yours and help to save some sweet little lives”
