Kevin & Noelle
Thank you for taking the time to read our profile. We are honored that you would consider us as potential parents for you child. We hope as you look at our profile, you see that we have so much love to give a child. We will offer a home that is full of love, joy, stability, and acceptance.
Why We Chose Adoption
From the time we were engaged, we hoped we would get married and have a big family. We waited patiently for about a year before we had testing done and realized it would be very difficult for us to conceive a baby naturally. We continued to see specialists for another year before we understood that our situation was unlikely to change. This was difficult to accept, but we ultimately decided to trust in God's plan for our lives. We still had a strong desire to become parents. We thought and prayed about growing our family through adoption. We talked with many people about their adoption experiences. This gave us the insight to know that we were ready to pursue adoption.
We have hope that adoption can give a child joy, love, and stability. We also have hope that adoption will bring us the joy and happiness of becoming parents and sharing our love with another. We know parenthood will come with ups and down, sacrifices and struggles, and we are ready to embark on that journey. Love is made complete through sacrifice and placing another first and we are excited to do that for love of a child. We believe adoption is a blessing and a gift that the child's birth parents give first because of their selfless love for that child; and what an honor it will be for us to accept that gift and continue to love.
We've been really lucky to be able to travel many times over the past few years. Some of these trips include Italy, Spain, Disney World, and the Red Rock mountains in Arizona. We enjoy going to new places and exploring new sights, eating new foods and meeting interesting people. Growing up, we both took family vacations during the summer. Kevin's family typically traveled to Gulf Shores, Alabama for a week at the beach, and Noelle remembers taking trips to go skiing in the mountains. We want our son or daughter to experience fun family vacations like we did and make memories as a family.
Our favorite vacation was our honeymoon trip to Italy. We spent 2 weeks traveling from Milan to Rome to Florence and several small towns in between. It was so interesting to be in the same places that we had read about and see them for ourselves. The food was delicious! It was a great vacation.
We hope to take our children on trips to see the country and the world. We want them to experience new places, new cultures, and have wonderful experiences.
Our Professional Lives
Noelle is an Ob/Gyn. It is a wonderful career that gives her the opportunity to walk with women through some of the most intimate times of their lives. These times can be happy and joyful, but can also be stressful and sad. It is an honor to walk with women through all of these times. She enjoys developing relationships with these women and helping them along the way of their unique journeys. It has been a wonderful blessing for her to have brought so many babies into the world as a physician. While her career is very fulfilling, she is looking forward to focusing on her family and her new role as a mother. She will very likely continue her career as an Ob/Gyn with part time hours.
Kevin works for a commercial real estate company, where he analyzes financial models on the computer. He has been with the same company for over 6 years and enjoys what he does. He works remotely from his home office.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a small city in Texas and it is a wonderful place to raise a family. We live in a cute cottage style house located in a historic neighborhood. We have 3 bedrooms, a home office where Kevin works, a big kitchen where we enjoy cooking meals, and a large TV / living room where we relax and where kids will be able to play. Shade trees hang over our back patio and there is a large open backyard with plenty of room to play games and run around. On cool fall and winter nights, we light up our fire pit to roast marshmallows.
Our city is very family-friendly. There are several museums, a zoo, and dozens of parks. The university in town has plenty of sporting events to watch, and we are just minutes from a large river to go fishing or kayaking. There is a nearby library to check out books, and a children's theater with multiple productions a year. We live in a neighborhood where there are a lot of young couples with small children. Every year, the neighborhood hosts a large Fourth of July parade for the kids, featuring fire trucks, music and food. Halloween is a big celebration in our neighborhood, with hundreds of kids coming to trick-or-treat.
We have many friends in their church community who have young children. We are excited for our children to grow up and spend time playing with many of those kids in our faith family.
Our Extended Families
Noelle grew up in Texas, and most of her family lives here. Her youngest sister and parents live in Texas, within driving distance. She has one sister who lives in California, with our brother-in-law and nephews (ages 2 and 3). We take trips to visit them anytime we can, and often FaceTime with the boys. We cherish family time, and while we don't all live in the same city, we make an effort to see each other often.
Kevin grew up in Tennessee, and his parents still live there. He has a younger sister who lives nearby, and another younger sister who lives in New York. We recently hosted Christmas for Kevin's whole family, which was such a fun and enjoyable holiday. We played board games, baked cookies, and enjoyed each other's company. We look forward to many more holidays like this with our future children.
Noelle grew up in a Hispanic-American household. A typical Christmas would include a Christmas Eve dinner of tamales, rice, and beans, and a Christmas day lunch of turkey, stuffing, and all the fixings. Our holidays centered around food, family, and God.
Both of our families have been so supportive and excited for us to add a child to our family through adoption. This child will be lovingly welcomed into our family, and treated no different than a biologic child. They will be cherished, spoiled by grandparents, and know the love and stability of a generous and fun family.
From Us to You
Thank you for taking the time to consider us to be the parents of your child. We understand that your decision is difficult and we are praying for you during this time. We are filled with joy to know that we can become parents through adoption. And we are deeply humbled to know that we can become parents because of a selfless act of a mother placing her child for adoption.
Noelle grew up in a Hispanic household, with Colombian and Mexican heritage. While they did not speak Spanish in her immediate household, there were many other ways that they incorporated their Hispanic traditions. She grew up taking flamenco and folklorico dance classes throughout her childhood. She has memories of making tamales with her maternal Mexican-American grandmother at Christmas. For Easter, they made cascarones, eggshells filled with confetti, and gently cracked them over each other's heads to celebrate. Her father was born in Colombia, and his family has passed on beautiful traditions, food, music, and dances that she hopes to share with her family.
Kevin has Spanish and French heritage. His uncle has done lots of research on his family's history, and he traces his roots back to Vigo, Spain. Kevin has diary records of his ancestors traveling from Vigo to Cuba, and then on to New Orleans. We've traveled to Spain twice and have enjoyed learning about and exploring the Spanish culture. Most of Kevin's extended family settled in New Orleans and have strong ties to that area. That side of the family is always fun to visit – always talking, laughing and eating lots of good food.
We have been married for almost four years. From day one, we wanted a large family with lots of children. It is why being unable to have children has been so difficult for us. We feel God is calling us to be parents, and we now believe that is through adoption. We are ready for all the adventures that await our family. There will inevitably be ups and downs in raising children, but we are prepared to meet every challenge head-on and to celebrate every beautiful and happy moment. One thing that will always remain is our love for each other and our love for our children.
We are excited to raise our children in a loving home. We are filled with overwhelming joy at the idea of adopting an infant. But we are also so happy at the thought of raising that child from toddler to teen: to be able to teach a child how to find his/her true self, to understand the unique purpose that God has planned for his/her life. Our parents gave us all the tools and opportunities to succeed at life and we are very grateful to them for all they did for us. Our hope is to be able to provide the same chances to grow physically, mentally and spiritually to our children. Our hope is to raise a well-rounded son or daughter, one that not only are we proud of, but a son or daughter that you would be proud of.
We want our child to know their adoption story, and to associate their adoption with love and hope. We will speak of you often, with love and admiration. As our child grows and has questions about their adoption, we will give them answers honestly, emphasizing your love, maturity, and selflessness that allowed you to make this sacrifice for love of them. Our child will be proud of their story and know the beauty that can come from adoption.
We truly admire your courage and sacrifice and thank you for you considering us. Over the years, we would like to regularly send you photos, letters and e-mails giving you updates on your child. Know that we are praying for you daily. Above all, we pray that you choose what's best for you and your child, even if that means parenting yourself or selecting another couple. We hope the decision you make gives you peace.
