Kyle & Sarah
Thank you for taking your time to look at our profile. Words cannot express how grateful we are to be considered in such a big decision. We would love to give you a glimpse into our family and its foundation of faith, love and a few cows. We hope that this profile helps you get to know us as a couple, our lifestyle, and our motivation to welcome a child into our family.
What Makes Us Unique
We both come from a ranching background. Sarah's dad and granddad have been ranching in West Texas for over 40 years. Kyle's family ranches and loves to participate in rodeo. Some of our best memories as children are bottle feeding baby calves and getting to hold baby lambs and goats.
When we first met, we got to know each other by working goats almost daily for an entire summer. We discovered that we shared many of the same interests and beliefs, mainly our common family values of faith, hard work, honesty and dedication to the land and livestock.
We love this life and would love to share it with a child. Swimming in water tanks, fixing fences and praying for rain are part of our daily lives. We enjoy meeting with family and friends around a campfire, laughing and enjoying s'mores. The only piece that is missing is a child to share it all with. We are so excited to be on this adoption journey and cannot wait to start this next chapter of our lives together as parents!
Why We Chose Adoption
Adoption has always been something we have talked about. It is something close to Kyle's heart because of the love he felt for his dad and Sarah's heart because of her family and friends. Our journey to adoption became very clear after we decided we were ready to welcome a baby into our lives. After facing challenges of getting pregnant and having a baby biologically, we know that God is telling us that adoption is the path we are meant to take. We have personally seen the positive impact adoption has had for everyone involved, and we are so grateful and excited to start this chapter in our lives.
Being a parent is not something we will take lightly, and we will never ever take it for granted. Our number one goal is to provide unconditional love and support. We will also teach and guide our child to become the very best they can be. We will be their biggest fans and be their safe space in this crazy world. We are most excited to be a parent because we can't wait to hear their laughter, feel their hugs and see the joy in their faces when they discover something new. It will be new for both of us and we are excited for this lifelong journey as parents.
Adoption in Our Lives
Adoption is common in our family and friends. Our close friend was adopted from China. She is very passionate about adoption and her birth story.
Our family has several adopted members. Three cousins were adopted and they have chosen adoption also. We have one cousin who foster/adopted two boys through CPS. We spent a lot of time with the boys during their foster period. We frequently provided childcare and enjoyed teaching them how to rope and watch them play with the kid goats.
We also have cousins that serve as a foster family. Their children tend to come and go based on need. All children in our family are treated equally with love and lots of hugs.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a small rural town in West Texas and living here we have a great sense of community. The town has traditions like a 4th of July fandango which ends with a firework show put on by our fire department. In the summer we have an annual UPRA rodeo. Kyle has participated in team roping the last two years, and he oversees the boot scramble and mutton busting for children during the rodeo. We love decorating our tractor for the lighted Christmas parade. Our town is big on school spirit. The whole community supports our schools and their activities. Football games are always packed, and the entire town is decorated for homecoming. When the high school band performs, cars will line the streets to cheer them on. The school is always featured on the front page of the local newspaper. The support of this small town is incredible.
We live in a cozy 3-bedroom, 2-bath house in a beautiful neighborhood. We know all of our neighbors and visit with them often. We live 2 blocks from the nearest park so it is easy to walk our nieces there to play. Basketball and tennis courts are nearby, and there are always kids out playing. At home, we love to hang out in the backyard. We have a garden area where we grow all kinds of vegetables. On weekends we enjoy grilling and having a picnic on the patio with friends and family. We love our close-knit peaceful town.
Our Extended Families
We live close to Sarah's parents, her brother's family and her grandfather. In fact, we all live on the same street. We love living so close because we can regularly get together for dinner and have a readily available support system for each other in case of emergencies. We are all partners in a family ranching business, so it is nice to live close by. Kyle's family lives spread out over Texas, but we get together for a week at the lake every summer and celebrate together every Christmas.
Adoption is common on both sides of our family. Kyle and his siblings were adopted by his stepfather when he was 5 years old. Sarah's family has several adopted family members. She has cousins that serve as a foster family and cousins that have adopted children. All our family members were excited to hear we are hoping to adopt. Our adopted children will have unconditional love and support on both sides.
From Us to You
Thank you for looking at our profile and getting to know us a little. We look forward to getting to know you and learning your story, too. Even though we do not know you yet, we deeply admire you. We can only imagine the strength, courage and selflessness it takes to create an adoption plan.
We cannot express how grateful we are that you are considering us in this journey with you. We hope that you feel loved and supported on your journey and we would be honored to be part of that support system. If you decide to make an adoption plan with us, we want to assure you that we promise to respect you and whatever level of contact you want to have with us throughout your pregnancy and after. If you choose us to be your child's parents, we promise to send pictures and letters regularly and we are open to phone calls, video calls and emails. We are here for you and your comfort level of communication. We want the word "adoption" to be a comfortable word in the child's vocabulary. We will read child appropriate adoption books to them and be open and honest about their adoption from an early age. We hope being honest and giving age appropriate details will build trust and openness in discussing their adoption. We will celebrate their adoption and tell the story of how excited we were that it was our turn to be parents. We will tell them how we prayed for them for years and how their birthmother is such a blessing to our lives. She made the decision out of unconditional love. The topic of adoption will always be special and positive. Adoption is a lifelong conversation and as they grow older, we want to be open to questions the child has.
We will never take being a parent for granted. It is something we have longed for in our relationship for many years. We know it will not always be easy, but we are committed to teach, guide and love them with our whole hearts. Please know as you consider our family, we will do everything we can to offer your child a loving home, a loving extended family, and all the sweet simple moments together as a family.
We have known each other for nine years and have been together as a couple for six years. We have built a great life and lifestyle together. We have good secure jobs that will help support this family for many years to come. Sarah works as a school counselor at a middle school and Kyle works as an account manager. With our extended family, we are partners in a ranching business that has been around for over 40 years. This lifestyle will provide many experiences on the ranch including caring for baby livestock, riding horses and enjoying campfires with family and friends.
We are anxiously awaiting the special call that tells us we have been chosen. Please know we are thinking and praying for you and your baby throughout your pregnancy and that you will have peace and comfort in your decisions as you go through this journey. Thank you for considering us and for the blessing you and your baby will have in our life!
