Stephen & Kirby

Adoption is the most selfless and amazing decision. To give someone else the gift of a child when they are not able to conceive one themselves is beyond words. This child will be loved in so many ways, not only from us, but from you as well. We cannot wait to start this incredible journey!

What Makes Us Unique

Kirby & Our Nephew Being Silly

We tend to show our uniqueness before you even get to know us. Kirby typically has a brightly colored mohawk and has many tattoos including a full leg sleeve that she is currently working on. Stephen is awesome sized with lots of tattoos, a bald head and beard. But once you get through just looking at us, we are very different from most people. We love all things that are comfortable, may it be our favorite ratty old t-shirts and jeans, big leather couch or unmade bed. We are unconcerned with other people's or societies expectations of what we should be or what we should look like, what matters most to us is being us. We love art and bright colors, so Kirby paints wall murals around the farm and paintings for the house. We have made our home and farm a place of love and acceptance and therefore a judgement-free zone.

Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other

At the Farm

Kirby About Stephen: I tell everyone that Stephen is the best thing to ever come into my life. He loves and accepts me for who I am and never tries to change me. He is loyal, honest, caring and kind no matter what the situation. He defends me and protects me and I always know he is there to back me up if I ever need it, he is always in my corner. I could ask for a better person to spend my life with.

Stephen About Kirby: Kirby is as honest as they come, you will always know where you stand with her whether it is good or bad, she will not lie to you. She goes overboard with helping others and always puts everyone before herself. I know that Kirby will always have my back and will stand alongside me for whatever I or we have to face in our lives. She has unwavering loyalty to those she loves and loves full heartedly and unconditionally.

Our Lifestyle

With Friends at a Soccer Game

We are country at heart. We spend as much time as we can on our farm, spending time with the animals, making/creating things (such as art, soap, cheese, etc.), keeping the farm cleaned up and maintained, and just enjoying being outside.

Kirby runs a group home for the mentally handicapped and disabled. Kirby also volunteers as an assistant coach for the college women's rugby team while school is in and helps to mentor the girls on the team.

Stephen is a software engineer. Stephen enjoys playing on his indoor soccer league on Friday nights, but spends most of his time working on various projects around the farm or taking the occasional ride on his motorcycle.

Our lifestyle allows us to spend more time together than most get to!

Our House and Neighborhood

Our Home in Florida & Our Goats

We currently live in a rural community in East Orlando, comprised of 5-20 acre farms.

We have a dairy goat farm that is the home to 2 people, 37 goats, 1 cow, 17 chickens, 2 ducks, 1 goose, 3 bunnies, 2 lizards, and 3 dogs.

Our community has a hiking and riding trail that weaves all throughout it where you will often see neighbors riding horses and walking with their kids and dogs. It is very quiet and safe place where people lookout for each other.

Our Home at the Vineyard

However, we are in the process of packing up our lives in Florida and moving across the country to Oregon where our family owns a vineyard. The whole farm will be moving with us as our animals are our family as well. When in Oregon we will be living on the vineyard, which will then also encompass the farm as well. We will be growing grapes for wine, make cheese from goat and cow's milk and growing all our own vegetables in the greenhouse and garden space. Four generations live and work at the vineyard and we cannot wait to be a part of it!

Our Extended Families

Kirby's Extended Family

We believe that every child should be raised by a village, this is where extended family comes in, whether it is parents, siblings, cousins, friends, etc. Kirby's family has always been a small village to raise children, made up of four generations of close-knit, loving individuals; each person brings something important to the learning, growing and the development of each child.

Stephen's Nephew, Mother & Niece

Stephen's family is very dispersed across the United States, but they stay interconnected through phone, emails, video calls, letters, and cards. Since they are all over the country, we have the opportunity to travel and see other parts of the U.S. while catching up with Stephen's brothers and cousins. Whether it is taking a road trip to the rolling hills of Tennessee, flying to the valley of Southern Oregon or hanging out in the suburbs of New York, we get to enrich our lives with different types of culture and lifestyles. This not only provides family bonding but also enriches our child's life.

From Us to You

We want to start this off with letting you know we are not like a lot of the others you are going to be presented with, we are by no means perfect and would never try to present that to you. We are unique and different and will provide a unique and different life for this child. We come from very different backgrounds which allows us to bring the best of both those worlds together and create something completely new.

Living in a rural area on a farm our life is very active. We spend most of our time outside, whether it is caring for the animals, building or repairing fencing, barns, etc., barbecuing, wandering the farm, playing with the animals, or just enjoying our time at the farm or vineyard. This child will get to experience life in a much different way than most people get to. Learning to care for not only animals but others and themselves in a more complex, hands on and concrete way. They will be able to learn and develop abilities most others will never learn in a lifetime while they are young. Experiencing raising and interacting with many different animals, learning how to grow their own food, how to build things, how to run a business, and so much more. We are able to provide an enriching environment surrounded by nature, family and love!

In addition, this child will be able to learn computer related abilities due to Stephen's background in Information Technology, learning to keep up-to-date with hardware and software capabilities. Along with that they will be exposed to carpentry, mechanics, and health care related fields from other family members that they will be near. This exposure will come in handy when it comes to learning about running a business, as we own and operate several family businesses which include a healthcare office and a vineyard. Being around such varying backgrounds will allow this child the see all the possibilities that their future can bring. This child will have a fully paid for college fund established, that will allow them to attend college, trade school, technical college, etc if they choose to. We promote education in all forms whether it be from practical everyday learning or traditional learning at school.

Travel is also an important part of our lives. We try to take at least one if not two trips to different places not only in the United States but worldwide. Striving to have active vacations where we enjoy hiking, scuba diving, zip lining, etc on every vacation. Aiming to be full participants in everything that we do, not posing for pictures but being in each moment together experiencing it to the fullest. We hope to instill this in the child or children that we raise.

We want for everyone to feel comfortable and successful with this adoption. With that being said we are happy to communicate through email and regular updates of pictures and letters through the mail. We are not opposed to more communication as long as it is comfortable and healthy for all those involved. We feel that knowing ones past can help with ones future, but that it should NOT and does NOT define the person.

Information is power, so we hope this has helped you to make one of the hardest decisions that you will ever have to make. It is our hope that we are your choice, but if not, we know you will make the best choice for you and your child. Thank you for considering us for your child.
