Dear Expectant Mother,
Thank you for being a thoughtful mother, and thank you for taking this journey. We respect you profoundly and are humbled by your time to learn about us. We are deeply honored and eternally grateful that you have considered our family.
We look forward to the day when we can raise your child in our home, when we can help them grow and learn about the world around them. It is a home filled with music, art, books, dance, science, and math. We will teach them about Grandpa’s inventions and how to bake Grandma’s famous Halloween cookies; how to play baseball at family reunions and play Clue after dinner. We want to offer them experiences with different cultures, a chance to develop a world view and discover unique experiences. We want to help them discover who they are, what they are passionate about, and what their purpose is.
If you choose us, we will continuously support them, love them, and give them a home where your choice is celebrated, and so are they.
David is a finance executive at a large bank, and Kevin is a professional ballroom dancer and instructor. We first met seven years ago over Korean food, where we made an immediate and deep connection. Having both lived overseas, we share a great love for travel, world cultures, and art. We were engaged a few years after that date on the bank of a river in France. We have since been married for three years and spend much of our time discovering the world around us, whether it be an exotic island, finding the best local diner, or snuggling next to the fire with a good book or movie. On weekends, we go to the theater, visit museums and art galleries, take long walks around the lake, or take our pup to the dog park. We love growing together, learning together, and living life together.
We live in a family-friendly neighborhood just outside the downtown area. We are within walking distance to great parks with large trees, local restaurants, and a great school district. Being adjacent to a culturally diverse city center means we have easy access to zoos, parks, museums, monuments, sports, and historical sites. Our dog, Sherlock, is extremely docile, and while he may not know a lot of tricks, he has learned to be bilingual, understanding us in French and English. He is great with our nieces and nephews, and he is looking forward to having a little one in the home.
Our Extended Family
While we come from different backgrounds, both of our families are very supportive and are looking forward to welcoming a new addition to the family. David’s parents are looking forward to their first grandbaby and can’t wait to meet him or her. David also has three cousins, all with children under the age of three, so there will be no shortage of playmates at Thanksgiving gatherings.
Kevin comes from a large, traditional family, and being the youngest of ten children means there are eighteen cousins waiting to meet the newest addition and teach them all sorts of games at the family reunions held each summer.
While our families are spread out everywhere, from California to Wisconsin, it gives us a lot of opportunities to travel to see them, or to host when they come into town. We also have a few uncles living close by who we love to have over for dinner and a game in the park.
What Led Us To Adoption
Kevin’s older sister was adopted, so when it came time for us to choose the best option for expanding our family, adoption was the obvious choice. As adults, we have had close friends adopt wonderful children and have seen their families grow in divine connection and love. We hope to adopt so we too can continue in the tradition and example of our loved ones, and so we can build the beautiful family we’ve always dreamed of.
