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 family for your child.
Adoption in Our Lives
We were actively pursuing adoption in 2015 when an acquaintance contacted us about an expectant mother who was making an adoption plan. We were able to contact the soon to be 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 doctor appointments, received pictures of the ultrasound and 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.
We still maintain regular contact with Lochlan's birth 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 love watching him grow. We understand that our next child will have their own adoption story. We will develop our relationship with your and your child's birth family to whatever level everyone is comfortable with.
It is such a blessing to have Lochlan in our lives and we look forward to adopting again! Lochlan loves babies and we know he will be a wonderful brother someday soon!
Our Leisure Time
Our life is full of family, friends and adventures! We look forward to camping trips with bonfires and s'mores in the summer. We also love to go salmon fishing and blueberry picking! During the winter months there is typically a lot of fluffy snow and mild temperature, so we enjoy ice skating and sledding. Most of our friends have young children. We meet up with them often and our visits are geared towards activities the children enjoy. Spending time at home as a family is also a priority. We love quiet evenings spent in the hot tub, reading books or playing Candy Land. Traveling is something we feel fortunate to be able to do. Each winter we vacation in Hawaii and Arizona. We enjoy meeting up with our family and relaxing on 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
Kelly About Kevin: There are so many things about Kevin that I absolutely adore! One of them is his great sense of humor. He loves making me laugh! He always looks at the bright side of every situation and has a positive attitude. He is very social and loves stopping to talk to everyone. He is a wonderful father and interacting with children comes naturally to him. He loves playing catch, wrestling with Lochlan and teaching him how to ride his bike. Kevin is full of energy and excitement!
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
Our home is located in the beautiful state of Alaska in a suburb of Anchorage. We recently built our house after we fell in love with the mountain views from the property! From our living room windows and our hot tub, we can enjoy watching beautiful sunsets and amazing northern lights. We have a winding driveway and a big yard with a swing set and plenty of room for kids to play. Our lawn is perfect for setting up a volley ball net, playing a quick soccer or frisbee game with the families. The nearest school is a few miles from our house and we go there in the evening to play on the playground. There are lakes, parks and hiking trails nearby that we love to go to. Lochlan loves feeding the ducks at the lake and making sand castles. The Alaska State Fair grounds are a few miles from our house and we look forward to it each summer. We love where we live and feel it is a great place to raise a family!
Our Extended Families
We come from very close, loving and supportive families. We live near several of Kelly's siblings in Alaska and love spending time with them. Getting together with Kelly's family typically involves excitement. They talk all at once, are laughing and full of energy! They play games together and are always involved in fun activities. Kevin's family is also a lot of fun to be around and they all have a great sense of humor! They love to tease each other and are always up to some sort of funny jokes. Our family gatherings often consist of hiking, fishing, barbecues, bonfires or just relaxing at someone's house.
We love to travel to visit our family in their home states. We have family in Arizona, California, Colorado, Minnesota, North Dakota, and Washington. 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 are all so excited to have the opportunity to add another child into this wonderful family!
From Us to You
Even though we haven't met, we have a great amount of respect and admiration for you. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. We know you will make the best decision possible for your child.
Our names are Kevin & Kelly. We have a loving marriage that is built on trust and respect. We are best friends and cannot imagine life without each other! We adopted our adorable son, Lochlan in 2015 and marvel every day of the joy he has brought to our lives. After struggling with infertility for nineteen years we are thrilled that he is a part of our family. Our hope is that you would also be a part of our family. We would love to share our lives with another child and provide opportunities for them to flourish! We promise to raise your child with patience and love.
It has been unbelievable to experience how much love we have for a child. We could only imagine this love until we became parents ourselves. We love having him run to us with open arms and snuggle up for hugs. He challenges us to put our best foot forward and to be the best parents we can be. We look forward to all the stages of childhood that lie ahead and dream about adding more children to our family. We understand that each child will have their own unique personality. We are excited to discover their individual 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. Your 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. Our home is also a place where your child will always feel secure and know that they are deeply loved.
It is our belief that adoption is a gift of love, courage, and selflessness. Your child will be proud of their adoption story! We will always let them know that you want the very best for them. We will love your child unconditionally! It is important to us that you are reassured that your child is loved and well cared for and that you made the right decision. We would love to share pictures, letters and emails with you if that is something you would like. We look forward to learning more about you and wish you peace in the days ahead.
