dear expectant mother

First and foremost, thank you for considering adoption. Thank you for considering us. Thank you for this precious gift that makes it possible for us and others like us to realize our dreams of having a family. We can’t begin to imagine how difficult this decision must be, but we are extremely grateful for your courage and selflessness.

Your baby will know and feel so much love from the moment you choose us and our incredibly supportive and excited family and friends. Our families have special traditions, and we can’t wait to include your child and create new traditions of our own. We each have unique personalities and interests that complement one another. Katelyn can’t wait to coach any team they choose to be on, and Callie is excited to introduce the world through books and adventures. Our lives are filled with love, laughter, travel, sports, and music, and we are looking forward to sharing that and so much more with your child.

He or she will be encouraged and inspired to pursue their dreams and be their own unique self. We will provide every opportunity possible to make this a reality. Please know that you will not go through this process alone, because you will have us. This gift will change our lives forever, and we would be grateful and honored to join you on this journey.

Gratefully yours,
Katelyn & Callie

About Us

We met while working for a local parks and recreation agency, and our first date was to a coworker’s wedding. Now we have been married for more than five years, have careers we love, and can’t wait to bring a baby into our family. Katelyn is a youth coordinator for a local sports team, where she works with recreation centers to bring youth sports to local communities. She loves to play guitar, write music, and cook. Callie is a marketing executive for a non-profit youth organization. She loves music, concerts, and graphic design. We have a shared love of travel and enjoy exploring new places. We also love all types of games, from card games and our nephews’ Little League games all the way up to professional sports. We consider ourselves super aunts, and we can’t wait to be super moms!

Our Home & Pets

Our home is in a new development located in the heart of a major city. We love being downtown and have many schools, parks, playgrounds, and activities within close walking distance. On weekends, we can walk to the farmers market or one of the many community events, celebrations, or festivals held just a few blocks away. We are also close to the zoo, museums, and the aquarium and are a quick car ride up the canyon to enjoy our beautiful mountains. We adopted two rescue kittens that are two years old now.

Our Extended Family

We are incredibly lucky to have both of our entire families less than 20 minutes away, which also means birthdays, holidays, and celebrations are always spent together. We love being awesome aunts to our six nephews, and they can’t wait to get a new cousin!

Many of our favorite traditions are during the holidays, especially Christmas. We love decorating the house, singing Christmas carols as Katelyn plays the guitar, and seeing the lights around the city. Every year our family gets together to bake and decorate hundreds of our “secret family recipe” sugar cookies and deliver them to neighbors and friends. We also look forward to continuing our traditions of going to Mexico every other year with Callie’s family, enjoying season tickets to local sporting events, and cheering on our nephews at their various performances and activities. Our families love to have us create fun competitions with brackets, prizes, and bragging rights.

One of our newer family traditions includes gifting experiences rather than exchanging gifts as we love making new memories together. We are so excited to bring your baby into our family, and our friends and family are just as excited to be on this journey with us.

What Led Us To Adoption

We have numerous family members and close friends who have added to their family through adoption, and we have seen how full and happy their lives are. We tried to have a child through IVF but were unsuccessful. After taking the much needed time to heal, we started researching adoption and knew this was the path meant for us. Both of our careers are centered around children, and we can’t wait to have a child of our own!
