Tom & Kim
Thank you for taking the time to read our profile. We cannot begin to understand how difficult this decision must be for you and we are incredibly grateful that you are considering adoption. We want you to know that should you decide to choose adoption and us, we will provide a loving, nurturing and fun home for your child. We love being parents to our son Alexander and cannot wait to add another little one to our family!
Why We Chose Adoption
We both grew up with siblings and cherish the close relationships we have with them. We always hoped to have a big family. After the birth of our son Alexander, we learned we would not be able to have more children on our own. Raising Alexander has changed our life in an amazing way and brought us so much joy. We would love to share our lives with another child and give Alexander a sibling.
Adoption has always been a part of Kim’s family since all of her cousins were adopted. With adoption playing such an important part in our family, we know that adoption is the right path for us. We are excited to begin this journey and to welcome another child into our family. We can’t wait to experience the joys of seeing their first smile and being there with a helping hand for their first wobbly steps.
Our life is family focused, simple, and fun. We are an active family who loves to be outdoors. During the summer we spend time at the neighborhood playground and hike the nearby nature trails. In the winter, we enjoy sledding and building snowmen. Most evenings Kim enjoys cooking dinner while Tom plays backyard baseball with Alexander and we all eat dinner together as a family. Our Saturdays are always filled with a new adventure like summer concerts in the park, trips to minor league baseball games, or a visit to the wetland reserve near our home to see the animals. Sundays typically include attending church, a trip to the McDonald’s Playland afterwards, and dinner with Tom’s parents, who live nearby. Every spring we plant a vegetable garden. We have a garden box for each family member to plant whatever they choose and can’t wait to add another box for the little one.
We are fortunate to have flexible jobs that allow us to attend school activities and enjoy family time. Kim took time off from her job to stay home with Alexander and is looking forward to doing the same with the new baby.We love to learn about the world around us by exploring it. Our goal is to visit a new National Park every year as a family. This year we hiked the stunning red rocks of Zion’s National Park and we got to see wild bears in the Smokey Mountains. We hope to visit Glacier National Park and Yosemite in the coming years.
Fun Facts About Us:
Our House and Neighborhood
We have a lovely home in a neighborhood full of other young families and great schools. We live in a very welcoming community where the neighbors look out for each other. Our street has block parties and other social gatherings several times a year. We have a few good friends, with young children, in the neighborhood that we like to spend time with and are looking forward to making playdates for the new little one.
We have a 4 bedroom house with plenty of space for a growing family. The house has a large backyard which is used for summer cookouts with friends and family, backyard games, and a splash pool. And of course, a spot for our vegetable garden.
Our house is a short walk to a large park and very close to miles of biking trails which we like to use a lot. We are not far from a large freshwater spring where we like to swim and look forward to teaching the new little one how to swim. Our city has a vibrant downtown and we enjoy going there for festivals, concerts, and the local farmers’ market. We are very fortunate to live in such a nice city and love how family friendly it is! It is a wonderful place to raise our family.
Our Extended Families
We both come from loving and supportive families who are all excited to welcome a new child. Knowing we can always count on our families for anything is a true blessing in our lives. We are excited to start our relationship with you and to welcome another child into our family.
Tom comes from a big family and we see them often. Every Sunday after church we have dinner with Tom’s parents and grandpa likes to work with Alexander on his golf swing. They cannot wait to welcome a new grandchild into the family! Kim’s family is small in size but big in heart. Kim’s twin sister lives close by and comes to visit often. Kim’s mom and older sister’s family live in Florida. We look forward to getting out of the cold Wisconsin winter and visit them every January which always includes a family trip to the beach where we picnic, swim, and build sandcastles.
Last summer we took a trip with Kim’s family to the Smokey Mountains. We had a great time white water rafting, hiking, and climbing up Chimney Rock – a difficult climb but worth the spectacular views of the mountain tops.
From Us to You
When we think about you and what you are considering for your child, we admire you because you are the kind of parent we aspire to be, one that selflessly puts the love for their child first. We hope our story shows how we would make great parents for your child. We will work hard to provide the best possible life for your child filled with love, laughter, family, and an unconditional commitment to them and to you.
We are Kim and Tom and hope that you can see through our profile the love we have for each other and our family, the respect we have for you, and how our family would fit into the vision you have for your child. We have been married for over 8 years and together for more than 10 years. We have a loving relationship based on trust, friendship, and mutual respect. We are a team in every aspect of our lives. Tom is easy going, genuine, and has a great sense of humor that makes everyone laugh. Kim is caring, nurturing and always there to help a friend. We are both honest, open minded, and have a thirst for learning new things. Kim has been learning how to play the piano and picked up tennis while Tom has been learning about solar energy and how we can become more environmentally friendly.
Currently, we are parents to our 4 year old son Alexander. We take the responsibility of parenting seriously but also enjoy relaxing and just having fun. On a warm summer weekend we love nothing more than to set up the inflatable pool in the back yard for Alexander to splash around in, while we grill out with friends or family and play a couple rounds of corn hole.
We both value education and will share that with our children by providing a good education and by being active in the world around us. We also want to make sure our children experience a wide variety of activities so they can find something they are passionate about. To encourage this passion, we enjoy activities like sports, trips to the library, and playing music.
Family is important to us and our family is very excited about our decision to adopt. We recently moved back to Tom’s hometown which has been great for us. Tom’s parents, who live nearby, are looking forward to having another grandchild to read stories to and give lots of hugs and snuggles, too.
We believe adoption is a bond that ties two families together. And as such would like to have an openness level you are comfortable with. If you would like, we are happy to send pictures and email updates, as well as phone calls and visits. We believe that an open relationship can be beneficial for everyone and we want to make that as easy as possible. We plan to be open and honest with your child about their adoption from an early age and make sure they know you made this sacrifice out of love. Ultimately, our goals are the same, we both want to help your child grow up in a loving and supportive environment and help them to reach their full potential.
long journey starts with a single step, we hope you will take the first step of this journey of a lifetime with us.With much love and respect,
Tom & Kim
