Kevin & Kelly

We believe adoption is a great blessing and are excited you are taking the time to learn about us. We became parents through adoption in 2015 and it has brought us so much joy! Our lives are full of love, laughter, and happiness that we want to share with your child. We wish you strength and peace as you search for the lucky family for your child.

Adoption in Our Lives

Lochlan & His Birth Mom Reading Stories

We were actively pursuing adoption in 2015 when an acquaintance contacted us about a birth mom who was making an adoption plan. We were able to make contact with the birth parents and set up a meeting with them. That meeting was the beginning of an amazing journey to adopt our son, Lochlan. We attended multiple doctors appointments with the birth mom. She gave us pictures of the ultrasound and we looked forward to the delivery. We were honored to be present at Lochlan’s birth and Kevin was able to cut the umbilical cord! It was a time we will never forget and were so grateful to witness the miracle of his birth.

Our Happy Family

We still maintain regular contact with Lochlan’s birth mother and family. It is so special to see them interact together and we cherish the moments we have with them. They play a special role in his life and they are also so grateful to share the joy of watching him grow.

It is such a blessing to have Lochlan in our lives and we look forward to adopting again! We can only imagine the joy of watching him with siblings of his own. He loves babies and we know he will be a wonderful brother someday soon!

Our Leisure Time

Swinging on the Tire Swing

We love that our life is full of family, friends and adventures! We look forward to weekend camping trips to the mountains or to the river salmon fishing in the summer. During the winter months there is typically a lot of fluffy snow and mild temperatures so we enjoy many outdoor activities. We often meet up with friends during the week at a park, a lake or at a home. Most of our friends have young children, so our visits are often geared towards activities the children enjoy. We also love spending time at home as a family, in our garden, cooking meals, and having friends over. We also love to travel to new places and explore new areas. Being self-employed has allowed us to maximize our leisure time and has enabled us to travel to many places. Hawaii and Arizona are winter getaways we look forward to each year. We like to meet up with family and enjoy the sunshine and relaxation of vacation. We look forward to sharing all these special times with another child and making new memories.

Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other

Beautiful Summer Day

Kelly About Kevin: There are so many things about Kevin that I absolutely adore! One of them is his awesome sense of humor! He is filled with laughter and joy and has a twinkle in his eye. He always looks at the bright side of every situation and has a positive attitude. He is very social and loves stopping to visit everyone. He is a wonderful father and interacting with children comes naturally to him. He loves playing catch outside with Lochlan and our puppy.

Kevin About Kelly: Kelly is amazing! She has been my best friend ever since we first met! From her warm, vibrant smile to her generous and loving personality, she is incredible. Being the oldest child in a large family has given her a natural sense of motherhood and an ability to nurture. She is always putting those around her first and she truly has a mother’s heart. One of Kelly’s strongest loves is children and she jumps at every chance to hold a newborn or cuddle a toddler. Seeing Kelly become a mother has made my love for her grow even deeper.

Our House and Neighborhood

Home Sweet Home

Our home is located on ten, peaceful acres in a suburb of Anchorage. We worked together to build our house and have loved adding all the finishing touches to make it our home. There are mountain views from our living room windows, where we can enjoy watching beautiful sunsets and amazing northern lights. We have a long, winding driveway, a big yard with a swing set and we are working on building a hockey rink. There are often families at our house and there is plenty of space for many activities. We also love to grow a garden each summer and eat the delicious produce that grows from it. Our home is close to many excellent schools, lakes, parks and hiking trails. There are also several indoor pools and recreational centers that we can enjoy year round. The Alaska State Fair is a few miles from our house and we look forward to it each summer. There are also a few parades nearby that we enjoy watching each year. We love where we live and feel it is a great place to raise a family.

Our Extended Families

In Hawaii With Kelly's Family

We come from very close, loving and supportive families. We live near several of Kelly’s siblings in Alaska and spending quality time with them is a priority. Getting together with Kelly’s family is typically loud and adventurous. They talk all at once, are laughing and full of energy! They often play games together and love friendly competition such as arm wrestling, racing and seeing who can do the most push-ups. Kevin’s family is quieter in nature but they all have a great sense of humor! They love to tease each other and are always up to some sort of funny jokes. They also love to play the piano and sing together as a family. Our family gatherings often consist of hiking, fishing, barbecues, and bonfires.

Enjoying Family Time

We love to travel, often joining parents and siblings in the different states they live in: Arizona, Washington, Minnesota, North Dakota, Colorado, and even vacationing in Hawaii. These trips have a special place in our hearts and have kept our relationships close. Each year we celebrate the holidays with our families. We have always enjoyed sharing holiday traditions with our extended families, but now feel even more blessed to add new traditions and experience the delight of the seasons through our son’s eyes. We are so excited to have the opportunity to add another child into this wonderful family!

From Us to You

Our names are Kevin and Kelly. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We can only imagine what a difficult decision this must be for you. Even though we haven’t met, we have a great amount of respect and admiration for you. We are ready to give our unconditional love to another child.

During our eighteen years of marriage we have struggled with infertility. We adopted our adorable son in 2015 and marvel every day of the joy he has brought to our lives. We love hearing his little feet running through our home and are thrilled that he was part of God’s plan for our family. Our hope is that you would also be a part of this plan. We would love to share our lives with more children and provide opportunities for them to flourish!

Being self-employed has given our schedules a lot of flexibility. We love to take advantage of this freedom by vacationing often. Getting together with friends and family is a regular occurrence. We often go out for dinner, meet at a park, or get together at someone’s home. These everyday moments with friends and family are the things that make our lives special.

Spending time outdoors and being active is what we love, but we also appreciate our quality time at home as a family. We enjoy playing with Lochlan in our yard, going sledding, biking and just having fun! We have fond memories of bedtime stories so we have made it a priority to pass along this tradition. Kelly loves playing hide and seek and making cookies with Lochlan. Kevin loves jumping on the trampoline with Lochlan and playing catch with him and our puppy. We look forward to all of these activities with another child and will provide the child with a safe, adventurous, and loving home. Our home is a place where a child will always feel secure and know that they are deeply loved. We also understand that each child will have their own unique personality. We are excited to discover their qualities and interests.

Our families are beyond excited to welcome another child with open arms and hearts! They look forward to seeing Lochlan become a big brother. The child will be surrounded with love from grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. It is our desire to give our children the same loving, stable home environment we were raised in.

It is our belief that adoption is a precious gift of love, courage, and selflessness. Your child will be proud of their adoption story and know that you love them and want the very best for them. It is important to us that you know your child is loved and well cared for. We would love to share photos and letters with you to reassure you that you made the right decision. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. Whatever you decide, we wish you the best of luck and hope you find peace with your decision!

Sincerely,

Kevin & Kelly
