We appreciate you looking for the best fit for your baby. We're an adventurous couple who loves to travel. We have enjoyed visiting far off places like Indonesia and India, as well as exploring our own city and parks. Kelly is part of a theater group and plays ultimate Frisbee. Jennifer loves to cook and throw dinner parties, and is a mentor at our local high school. We are so excited to start a family and share all of these adventures.
Dear Expectant Mother...
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at our profile. We hope that this gives you a chance to learn a bit more about us and to see if we may be a good fit for you and your baby. We would be happy to talk more if you would like to learn more about us.
Jennifer and Kelly
We were introduced by mutual friends who thought we would hit it off because we're both from the same area. On our first date we talked about how we had both loved living abroad in Latin America. We dated for several years before deciding to get married. We spent the time getting to know each other and how we each approach life. Today we have a relationship built on love and trust.
Now we are ready to begin a family, and are excited (and a little nervous!) to begin the adoption journey.
Jennifer is the caretaker in our family - she is always looking out for family and is known for being a loyal friend. She is passionate about her work and supporting causes she believes in. She is a mentor at the high school down the street and serves as a volunteer adviser for several non-profits. She also loves to travel and explore new places, and is a great cook! She will be a fantastic mom.
Kelly will be such a fun father. He has a great imagination and creative side. He performs with a theater group and is always looking for plays and interesting things for us to see in the city. He will take our child on many adventures. When he is confronted with a challenge, he likes to look at all sides of the issue and think about the best path forward. He will help teach our child how to think for him or herself.
We live in a city with easy access to great museums, parks, and historical sites. Our neighborhood is very diverse and is within walking distance of several schools and parks. We have been here for over six years, and we still enjoy exploring the city and all it has to offer.
We live near a great park with lots of trails. We like to go there for hikes, bike rides, or to just hang out for a picnic.
Our dog is a big part of our lives. He has a funny little walk that always attracts a lot of attention on the street, and makes people smile. We love to curl up on the couch with him.
Kelly comes from a big family. He has aunts and uncles and cousins all over the country and other parts of the world. It has taken Jennifer a while to learn everyone's names - but we love getting together with everyone for the holidays and special occasions.
Jennifer's family isn't quite as big - but she also has aunts, uncles and cousins in Texas and overseas.
Because both of our parents are still in Texas, we spend most major holidays there. We also have a special family connection to adoption, because Kelly's younger sister is a Gladney baby!
We have loved getting to know our friends' children as their families grow. Several of our friends have recently adopted as well, so our child will grow up knowing that families come in all shapes and sizes.
We are fortunate to have a great community of friends where we live. They are all excited to help support our growing family.
We love to travel, and hope to have many adventures together as a family. We have travelled together to Indonesia, India, Mexico and recently to Spain. We hope to introduce our child to new countries and cultures.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little about us. We know this is a huge a decision that you are considering. If you think we might be a fit for your adoption plan, we would love to talk to you.
