Kevin & Kylie
We feel adoption is the ultimate gift and we are so grateful to you for taking the time to learn a little bit about us. We hope our profile captures the admiration we have for one another and the excitement we share in our dreams of a family. Choosing us to be your child's parents would mean the world and we cannot thank you enough for considering us on this journey.
What It Means to Become Parents
At our wedding we both candidly said becoming parents and having a family was the one thing we looked forward to most for the future. Just the thought of being at a playground or watching a little league game and having someone ask the simple question, "Hey, which one is yours?" is almost too hard to put into words. We know we would both be beaming with pride, love and admiration. We would be so proud and honored to tell someone which child we belong to.
Being parents to this child isn't about teaching them everything we know, but letting this little one show and tell us who they are and what sparks joy and interest in their life. We are only so thrilled to let this child become whoever they want to be, knowing that our love will always be there for them without condition and promising to be their biggest cheerleaders throughout life.
Our lifestyle together is easy and laid back, we love good food and good people to share and enjoy it all. We both also enjoy little adventures and activities with our friends and family. We love where we live and enjoying the nature that surrounds us whether its trips to go scuba diving in the ocean, fishing out in the intercostal or a fun day boating on the water.
Kevin grew up playing baseball and is an all-around talented athlete. He can also grill a mean steak and loves gardening, he planted Kylie a flower garden on the side of our home as a gift for her.
Kylie grew up playing numerous sports, is an avid reader and might be a little famous among friends for her meatball recipe.
All of these things make up our lifestyle, but our true love will be the littlest in size, but biggest in our hearts. Adoption will be our greatest adventure yet and the most important part of our lifestyle will be this child.
Our Family Traditions
We both have fond memories of our childhoods and hope to create some new ones along the way.
Kevin's family made Friday nights out a priority. He has too many memories to count going to their favorite Italian restaurant, ordering more spaghetti than he could stomach and making sure the to-go box had his name on it. Friday nights out are something we choose to continue today and can't wait to add a child in for Friday night dinner reservations.
Saturday mornings in Kevin's family were also special. If Kevin was up early enough he got to grab donuts with his dad and hand select his donut. Kevin continues this every Saturday with our dogs, Bayr and Boka. Safe to say Saturday mornings in our house are special and everyone is excited about donut days!
Kylie grew up loving the holidays and has a special tradition with her sister. Every Christmas Eve we exchange our gifts to another before Santa comes the next morning. It started when we were little kids and we still continue to do now. Along with the holidays Kylie's whole family takes a vacation and always plans themed dress up nights. We have some funny pictures over the years and cannot wait to add a child and more vacations to our family photo album.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in beautiful north Florida and our house is less than a mile from the beach. We have a five-bedroom, three-bath home on a quiet cul-de-sac with the best neighbors and kids on the block! Our home has a great back patio and plenty of fenced in yard to play! We love our house and enjoy spending time cooking together in the kitchen or grilling out in the backyard and listening to music.
Being less than a mile from the ocean we enjoying biking to the beach for days of fun in the sun or to nearby restaurants for lunch on the weekends. We are close to a large park with baseball & soccer fields a golf course and a large outdoor playground and splashpad. We cannot wait for the day we get to experience this child exploring the playground, swinging on the swing set, dipping their toes in the water and digging into the sand on the beach.
Our Extended Families
We both have incredibly close families and love them all dearly. Kevin is one of four siblings and Kylie is one of two, with three nieces and one nephew between them all. Some of our most cherished memories are with our nieces and nephews, family get togethers are so much sweeter now that we have all of them to play with and love on!
Kylie's parents live on the water in South Florida and we try to see them as often as possible! We love spending our days splashing in the pool or going out on her dad's boat and finding a beach to swim around and have a picnic lunch. We have a lot of fun in this family and cherish our time together over the holidays and our yearly tropical family vacations when we all pick a theme and get dressed up in matching costumes!
Kevin's parents live in Texas, we take turns going back and forth to see them and they enjoy coming out to visit us. When we aren't in Texas or Florida you can find us in the mountains of New Mexico at Kevin's family cabin. The cabin is a favorite place for us and holds so many memories for Kevin's family as his grandfather built it before he was born.
Kevin's favorite childhood tradition is going to get donuts on Saturday morning and Kylie's is opening one special present on Christmas Eve. We cannot wait to continue these traditions with this child.
From Us to You
To be quite honest this is a letter we have looked forward to writing for the longest time. We can recognize our roles differ greatly in this experience and it is equal parts joy and heartbreak. We understand this is the single most life changing decision any of us will ever have to make and we want to start with pure honesty. We are not in your position and even though we are facing very different decisions please know our hearts are with you every step of the way. Our hope is that you are able to feel our love, respect and honesty throughout this letter.
For the moment we are complete strangers, so we wanted to write to you in the form of promises we intend to keep to you and your child.
We promise to you that your child will be loved. We promise our love will be unconditional, but our love will not be replaced by yours. We only promise a positive love with no end, a type of love that is all consuming morning noon and night. We promise your child will become tired of us telling and showing them just how much we love them. And it will never stop, our love will never end. This is a lifelong promise.
We promise you that your child will always know their story and where they came from. We promise to always speak your name and think of you daily. Your child will know you by name and recognition, we hope you might share pictures of yourself for your child to keep and treasure. We promise to send you pictures, cards, and emails if you wish and will respect any relationship you are willing to have with us and your baby.
As we promise to love your child, we also give you our word and promise to continue to love each other and remain committed to our marriage and family. We have been together now for almost eight years and married for five. We can say enduring this season of our lives has only created a deeper bond and one that could never be broken. We were created to be partners in this life together and will love one another for as long as we live. Our hope is to be good role models as husband and wife, as partners, and above all else as parents.
As difficult as this is to explain on paper we hope you understand when we say this child, your child will always be just that - your child. This beloved little human being may have our name in the future but please know this child has your heart. For this, the entirety of both our hearts will be indebted to you - our hero.
We know this forever changes all of our lives. You are the one giving us the biggest gift and entrusting us to raise your child. There will never be enough words to express our thanks and appreciation. Please know that we will always celebrate you and that you are so dearly loved.
With all our love,
Kevin & Kylie
