dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

We are so honored you would consider us as possible parents for your baby. For you to give such an amazing gift is a truly selfless act. If you would allow us to raise your child, it would be the greatest joy of our lives.

We have been lucky to grow up with wonderful families, but we know our family still has some growing to do. We hope your child will be the newest member. We would never forget the brave choice you made, and we would spend every day providing your child with love, fun, and security. Even our dogs are ready to be “big brothers,” and we’ve seen how sweet and gentle they are with babies.

We are already planning all the traditions we can’t wait to share with your child, from opening new PJs on Christmas Eve to making s’mores in our backyard. We will take them to swim lessons, library programs, and summer camp. They will get to go on all sorts of vacations, from theme parks to the beach. Each and every day, we will care for your child and help them grow up happy and healthy.

Through it all, your child would know how much you love them and what you sacrificed in order to make our dream come true. We will welcome you into our family as well, at any level you’re comfortable with, so you can see you made the right decision trusting us to raise your child.

Love,
Kalib and Brad

About Us

We are both originally from Kentucky and met when we were next-door neighbors in college, making each of us literally the boy next door! We moved to Atlanta for a few years while Brad was in grad school, and that’s when we got married. After Brad got his PhD, we decided to come home to Kentucky. Brad works as a math professor, and Kalib works as a software developer. Kalib enjoys running and drawing. Brad likes to knit and bake. We both love to read, although we keep buying books faster than we can read them! Of course, our happiest moments are the ones we spend together. On a typical evening, we cook dinner (Brad being the head chef), take our dogs for a long walk, and play a board game. We are each other’s best friend!

Our Home & Pets

We have two beautiful, sweet dogs, Buzz and Newton. We recently bought a new home with a yard big enough for the dogs to run around and play with our future child. Our house is at the end of a cul-de-sac on a quiet street. We already have a dedicated playroom set up for when our niece and nephew visit, and we know which room will become the nursery when we bring a baby home. We love to decorate our home for holidays, especially Halloween and Christmas. We have a community playground and swimming pool within walking distance of the house, and we often go to restaurants, musicals, and movies around town. Our neighborhood would be a wonderful place for your child to grow up.

Our Extended Family

Brad grew up in a loving family and is the youngest of three siblings. His entire family still lives close by, and we see them often. During the summer, we visit Brad’s parents’ house to grill out and swim in their pool. We always celebrate New Year’s Eve at the family lakehouse. Brad’s parents have no grandchildren yet and are excited to have a grandchild they can spoil.

Kalib comes from a big family where he is the middle of three siblings and one of sixteen cousins! Having such a big family meant there was always a birthday party or holiday gathering to attend. As a kid, Kalib especially looked forward to Christmas Eve with the whole family crammed into one house with lots of laughter, food, and games. Kalib’s mom is a children’s librarian and read lots of stories to him as a child, a tradition she will no doubt continue with your baby. Our niece and nephew are so excited to have a cousin. They cannot wait to welcome your baby to our family.

What Led Us To Adoption

We both come from families with loving parents, and we have always wanted to be parents someday too. We know adoption is the right path for us, and we are ready to make the commitment of becoming dads. Our dream is to find an expectant mother who wants a safe, caring home for her child. We are excited for the opportunity and responsibility of providing that home. We have spent a lot of time with children, from our niece and nephew on Kalib’s side to the kids Brad tutors at an after-school program. As parents, we will do everything in our power to give your child a happy, fulfilling life and endless opportunities. Our families fully support us in this and will surround your child in love.
