Words don’t seem like enough to express how grateful we are for you taking the time to get to know more about us. We realize that you are looking for the very best for your child and we appreciate you considering us. We are truly honored to be given this opportunity, and cannot imagine anything more important and desirable than to be parents for your child.
We have built a life together based on love and laughter and respect for each other. We are two genuinely happy, cheerful and easy-going people. Our parents were our role models for love and raising a supportive family. We have always dreamed of having a family together, and can promise you that a child who becomes part of our family will be loved unconditionally. We promise to fill a child’s life with joy, adventure and amazing memories. We will provide a safe home and fully support and encourage them to pursue their interests and education. We believe in seeing the best in people and will raise a child to not only understand right from wrong, but instill in them the qualities it takes to be a good person.
We are excited to see what the future holds and we are looking forward to getting to know you better during this process.
We both have professional careers in the financial services industry. After connecting online over shared interests we quickly realized that we both value our family relationships and have the same strong desire to have children. We enjoy traveling, golfing, taking our dog on walks/to the park, going to the farmers market on Saturday mornings, going to the movies, and hosting family dinners. We have a loving marriage and enjoy cooking and eating dinner together every night and use this time to catch up on our day. We solidified our love with an intimate ceremony in October 2016.
Our home is in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by several parks, restaurants, schools and churches that are within walking distance. We have two bedrooms 1.5 bathrooms and a large office/3rd bedroom that provides us with plenty of space. We also have a fenced in backyard where we enjoy barbequing and gardening while our dog, Emmett, runs around. Emmett and our cat, Maxwell are extremely friendly and are great with adults and children.
Our Extended Family
We genuinely enjoy spending time with our families, and often host holiday dinners at our house. Holidays are even more special for us now that we have a niece on Kenny's side (and one on the way on Andrea's side). Both of our families know how much we love children are so supportive of our desire to adopt.
Family is important to both of us and we are very close with our parents and siblings. Kenny has two brothers (1 married with a daughter, the other is single) who live about 15 minutes away from us. His Dad passed away 8 years ago and his Mom recently moved to be closer to all of us. Andrea's parents only live a few hours away and her sister's family currently is 2 hours away. Although our families live in different parts of the state we’ve found that our traditions are very similar across both families. We like to get together with each side for birthdays and holidays, as well as casual family dinners.
What Led Us To Adoption
We both love kids and have always wanted to become parents. Even in the beginning of our relationship we talked about having a family together and considered adoption as an option. Since then we’ve suffered loss, gone through numerous failed fertility treatments and ultimately learned that we are unable to have biological children. More than anything our dream is to have a family. We love spending time with our niece, Andrea’s god-daughter, and so many of our good friends’ children. In our hearts we know we are meant to be parents, it just hasn’t happened yet.
