Kevin & Jessica
We are grateful to have you here looking at our profile. We would be honored to have you consider us as potential parents for your child. We believe that adoption is an exceptional opportunity to give others a chance at having a family of their own. Choosing us to be parents of your child would be making a dream of ours come true. We hope you consider us for this adventure.
Our Leisure Time
We have a long walking and biking trail close to our home where we like to take our dog, Axel, for walks when the weather is nice. Almost every day Kevin walks Axel when he gets home from work. One of our favorite activities is taking walks or bike rides in the Fall when all the trees are changing colors, it’s just beautiful. When the weather is cooler we enjoy checking out the latest movies. We look forward to adding a child to our favorite activities and adding new fun activities to our routine as well!
One of our favorite things to do is plan for Halloween! We have a great time together putting up decorations together. With having a big subdivision we get a lot of kids that come through for candy. It is truly amazing to see all the great costumes. What the kids are into each year, or even what the older kids have come up with themselves. We make it a family and friend event at our house. Jessica will put on a crock-pot of chili and we hand out candy and then hang out together afterwards.
Adoption is already an open topic in our family. Kevin's brother was adopted and his family has always been open about his adoption. Kevin knew from a young age that his brother was adopted but that made no difference in their relationship. Adoption is a beautiful act and a wonderful way to build a family. It’s about the love of a parent to give their child the best life possible. Even if that means not being part of their everyday life.
Should you choose us as your child’s parents, we are open to building a relationship with you. We want our child to know where they came from and how much you love them. We do not see being adopted as a negative but rather a positive not just for us but for the child as well.
What it Means to be Parents
Becoming parents is something we have talked about since we first started dating. We are ready to start making memories, start making our own traditions. We can’t wait to record our child's first smile, crawling or their first step. We are also very excited to see what kind of person that they will grow up to be. We are excited to see what kind of parents that we will become watching another person grow. We feel that being a parent means giving them a safe and healthy area to grow up in and explore on their own, but with us nearby to help keep them safe as they grow up into happy and healthy adults. We will also be there to help guide them through any downsides of growing up and to help them adjust. Being parents will be the greatest ride of our lives, and we are so ready for this journey!
Our House and Neighborhood
Our home is located Michigan in a small town where Jessica grew up. Our home is 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathrooms with an open floor plan with the kitchen flowing into the living space. We have a fenced in back yard for this child to run around in with our dog, Axel. A large deck looks out over the backyard and is the scene of many barbecues with family. Our neighborhood has a big group of young kids so this child will have plenty of playmates.
There are many annual events held in our town each year. We have parades, movies in the park, and the annual art festival. There is a park in the center of town that has kids coming and going all year long. It is also where they install the ice rink in the winter. Our town does an annual Spooktacular event for Halloween, and a fire truck brings in Santa for a special lighting ceremony every Christmas season. All these events will be so much fun to experience with a child of our own!
Our Extended Families
We both have family that we are close to and see very often. Kevin grew up on a farm in Iowa and we travel to his hometown often to spend time with his family. If we cannot make it to Iowa we will meet in Chicago for a weekend a couple times a year. Jessica's parents and older brother live in Michigan and we see them on a weekly basis.
A few times a month we get together with Jessica's parents for games. There is a wide variety of games we play including, cards, dice, and outside games. We all have so much fun engaging in friendly competition.
One of our favorite traditions with family is celebrating Christmas. Every Christmas starts out with biscuits and gravy breakfast and talking before we get to open gifts. But our traditions don’t always revolve around holidays. Anytime the whole family is together we sit at the table and chat for hours just to catch up with one another. We are looking forward to starting some new traditions of our own with a child.
From Us to You
First, we would like to thank you for looking at our profile. We believe you are an amazing person who is strong and caring. You are making a brave decision by considering adoption, in order to give your child a great future.
We are Kevin and Jessica and we met online in 2012. We both knew instantly it was meant to be so we planned our first date - dinner and a movie. While we were dating we began discussing our dreams for the future, buying a home, getting married and having a family. We bought our home, got our puppy, Axel, and got married, now we are ready to start our family.
We began trying to have children and found that it was not in the cards for us. Instead pursuing infertility treatments, we decided that adoption was the right path for us. Kevin's brother David is adopted so we know first hand what an amazing gift adoption is. To us, it doesn't matter if the child shares our DNA, all that matters is that we will love and protect this child forever. We and our families are excited to welcome in a new child into our lives. You will be giving all of us a chance to share with them our traditions and excitement and activities together with all the family.
Kevin works full time as a Software engineer. He enjoys the typical nerdy stuff such as video games, sci-fi movies, messing with electronics and working on fixing stuff around the house. He also likes to take our Chocolate Lab, Axel, on walks around the neighborhood.
Jessica is a Registered Medical Assistant in an breast surgery office. Jessica has a more outgoing personality to counter Kevin's. She enjoys working in our garden, crafting, crocheting, card making and baking. She also likes to work on obedience training with our dog. Our plan is for Jessica to stay home after we bring a child into our family to be able to see all the little moments a child has to offer.
We would like to let you know that your child would be brought into our family with many loving arms. A family that understands our excitement for a child and all the love we have to offer. A family that understands the way to be open about an adoption. After Kevin's brother's adoption experience, we see the positives of open adoption and will be open and supportive of whatever you may choose in terms of contact. We also plan to be completely honest with this child about his or her adoption story from the very beginning.
We plan on open contact with you so you can see your child grow and become the bright and shining star you dream he/she will grow up to be. We will stay in contact through letters and pictures, as well as any other form of contact you prefer. We believe it is important to share anything that we know about you with your child, especially that you are an amazing person who made an incredibly tough decision that we have the utmost admiration for. We will make sure that they know that you love him or her enough to be willing to place them with a couple who can give them the life they deserve.
We deeply thank you for your time and consideration.
