Brad & Kim
Thank you for the time and attention you are dedicating to reading our letter. We have always dreamed of having a family. Should you choose adoption, we vow to provide your child a lifetime of unconditional love, happiness, guidance, and support. We hope that you continue reading our story and review our pictures and feel that we would provide the best home possible for your baby.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other
Kim About Brad: Brad is the most positive and energetic person I know. I rarely hear him say a negative word or see him feel down and you can’t help but feel happy around him. Brad works very hard to be successful in his profession while still devoting a lot of energy to our family. He is warm, affectionate, adventurous, and generous. Many of his players think of him as family. Brad is great with kids! He is a wonderful uncle to our niece and nephew. He even gives our nephew, Cole, baseball lessons. He is passionate about everything he does, from his work to our family. He is my best friend!
Brad About Kim: Kim is a great listener and is genuinely interested in the lives of our friends and family. She makes me feel invincible! Kim is my constant supporter and biggest fan. She keeps our family organized and prepared for the next adventure. Kim is independent, reliable, and encouraging. She is always reading, learning, and researching topics from our health to home improvement. Kim is extremely close to our niece and nephew and treats them as if they are our children. She attends a lot of their activities and events. Kim is very supportive of everything they do. It is amazing to see the way they light up around her. Kim is the most patient person I know and is always ready for the unexpected ... she is my best friend!
Our Leisure Time
Brad works in college athletics so he loves all kinds of sports! He is always watching a baseball game or college football on the patio while firing up the grill. He is an active person ... he works out regularly, likes to go fishing with coworkers, and occasionally does small projects around the house like yard work and building a fire pit.
Kim loves to play tennis! She participates regularly in a USTA tennis league. Kim is always listening to music ... she has been to 7 Pearl Jam concerts but likes all types of music. Kim also likes to shop, and she is always up for a trip to the beach.
We live in a college town so we are always going to different sporting events and cheering on the home team! Our favorite thing to do together daily is taking our dog Murphy for a walk. It’s a great way to get some exercise, catch up about how our day went, and visit with our neighbors. We love hanging out in the back yard around the fire pit with friends and playing fetch with our dog, Murphy.
We have a 5-year-old Labradoodle named Murphy who is a HUGE part of our family! We take him everywhere and include him in everything … he loves taking a ride in the car and going into Lowe’s and Home Depot, and there are several restaurants in town that let us bring him to dinner with us and sit outside … and sometimes he gets leftovers.
Murphy is fun-loving and great with people … every kid in the neighborhood knows him by name. He likes to play tug, fetch and chase, but he loves to curl up next to us whenever we are on the couch or in the bed. We spoil him daily with treats and belly rubs. He is sad any time we leave the house, and equally as excited whenever we come home.Murphy can’t wait to have a younger sibling, and we know he will be a great big brother!
Our House and Neighborhood
Our home has an open kitchen and family room, which is where we spend most of our time. It’s really convenient to be able to interact with those in the family room while making snacks or a meal in the kitchen. The family room has French doors which open onto a large, covered patio with a TV and fire pit. Today, we love spending time out there grilling with friends and playing ball with our dog, Murphy. In the future, we look forward to playing in the yard with our children and their neighborhood friends!
We live in a family-oriented neighborhood where everyone is on a first-name basis. It’s a great mix of families from young working couples like us, who are just starting their families, to retired couples, who are home during the day. Most of the houses are on large wooded lots, so the neighborhood has a country feel to it even though we live in the city.Our house is a golf cart ride away from the lake ... during the summer, it's the place to be! Spending time at the lake is a great way to interact with our neighbors, and we hope will provide a fun way for our children to make lifelong friends.
Our Extended Families
Brad has lost both of his parents, but we have a wonderful and close relationship with Brad’s brother, cousins, and Kim’s family … and it is important to us to spend time with them often. Our niece and nephew love eating at Logan’s so they can throw peanut shells on the ground. They usually dominate the conversation by telling us the latest apps to download, showing us the coolest YouTube videos, and getting an update on their sports teams, dance activities, etc. Smart phones and social media make it very easy for us all to communicate regularly.
We love to spend Christmas with our family ... it is a 3-day event so we can see everyone! We exchange gifts on Christmas Eve with Kim’s family ... we eat all day, and play board games with our niece and nephew until late at night. They are old enough now where we don’t have to let them win!
Birthdays are also a big deal in our family! The birthday boy/girl gets to pick the restaurant for dinner, and then we all come back to our house for presents, cake, and ice cream. We look forward to celebrating all of these events with our children!
From Us to You
Thank you for the time and attention you are dedicating in reading our letter. We can never truly understand everything you are going through, yet we sincerely admire your strength and courage as you consider adoption. We believe that your decision to give your child the best life possible is the most loving, selfless, and amazing act a person can do for someone else. If you choose us to parent your child, we vow to provide your child a lifetime of unconditional love, happiness, guidance, and support.
We will give your child all of the love, respect, and well-being that you dream of for him/her. We have always dreamed of having a family. We believe that there is a reason God brought us together to make an adoption plan - we believe that becoming parents by adopting a child is giving life through love!
We met at work. We had offices directly across the hall from each other. Every time Brad got a chance he left his office to glance Kim’s way. We eventually spent time together away from work and hit if off immediately. We dated for two years and have now been married for 6 years. The past 8 years have been wonderful and neither one of us could imagine life without the other. Early on in our relationship we both expressed a strong desire to be parents and have the type of relationship with our children that we both had with our parents. Even though we can’t have children naturally, we believe that God’s plan for our family is to grow through adoption.
We are excited to expand our family and grow together. Our hope is to adopt multiple children over time. We will encourage our children to participate in activities and will support them as they face challenges. We will raise our children in the Christian faith and will guide them to become caring, responsible people. We want to teach them to be considerate of others and to realize that their actions affect those around them. Our faith will guide us all to show grace, forgiveness, and honesty, while being considerate of others and their beliefs.
Education is very important to us. We believe education provides opportunity for growth as an individual and we will strive to provide the best environment possible for learning. We live in an area that has excellent schools and we look forward to helping our children along the way.
