What it Means to be Parents
Ready to Adopt!

Being a parent is perhaps the greatest responsibility one can take on. An entire life is in our hands to love, protect, and guide. We have dreamt of being parents for years. We can’t wait for the laughter, the joy, and the fun that a child will bring into our lives. We are also prepared that the journey may be filled with ups and downs, and we will always be there to support a child through anything. Our home is filled with love and laughter (and also no shortage of off-key singing). We have built a happy and stable life through planning, hard work, and constant support of our friends and family. We are humble and grateful people. We have worked hard to create this environment so that we can share it all when we are blessed with children. We believe being a good parent is trying to make the best decisions you can for your children and being there for them unconditionally. We consider it a great gift to have the opportunity to do just that.

Our Leisure Time
Rocking Out in Our Basement

We both have a variety of hobbies and interests that keep active and fulfilled. Luke is a drummer and plays with numerous other people in rock and blues bands around the area. Kim is the crafty one in the family and has become enamored with Pinterest projects. Together we’re up for any type of fun, from a quiet dinner together to a weekend at one of the local music festivals. We also volunteer at a variety of community events through the local outreach program. We’ve done everything from helping throw a holiday party for developmentally disabled kids to aiding young Girl Scouts in earning badges.

When we’re not adventuring on our own, we have a large family that are all nearby so it seems like there’s always a graduation, wedding, play, recital, or family dinner to attend. Even if we’re just lounging around the house we stay busy trying to make each other laugh. Our household is never a boring one.

Adoption in Our Lives

Adoption is already a special part of our extended family as one of Kim’s older cousins placed her son for adoption many years ago. He’s a young man now and sought her out a few years ago. Since then he’s been a welcomed part of the family. It was a great resource to hear of Kim’s cousin’s struggles, hopes, doubts, and fears with the entire process. She has helped us learn a great deal about both sides of adoption.

Several of our friends have also adopted kids over the years and we have used them all as resources as we pursue that same goal. The thing that is most striking about their stories is how unique they all are. Their adoptions are as diverse as the people involved, but every single family we know treasures their choice to adopt and can’t imagine their lives any other way.
