We are so glad you have taken the time to meet us. We are very excited to be building our family through open adoption. We would love to get to know you and your hopes and dreams for your child. Your child will always know they were loved from the start and you will hold a special place in our family and life if you choose to entrust your child to us. We would love to talk about your vision of your adoption plan together.
We met in 2009 at Buffalo Days. It is a annual festival in Kim's hometown.We had both been to this festival many times but never crossed paths until fate, or shall we say great friends intervened. Kim's childhood friend since preschool and her husband set up for Steve to be at Buffalo Days to meet them the same time Kim was meeting them. The rest is history. We were married in November of 2010. We began on our journey of starting to have a family a few months into our marriage. We both knew we wanted a family from the start. We experienced four miscarriages along that path of our journey to having a family. After many meetings with many specialists and lots of prodding and poking and tears we came to accept that biological children were not in our future. We did a lot of soul searching and our hearts were led to adoption to build our family. Throughout our losses and soul searching we have been able to strengthen our marriage and commitment to each other as well as our future family. We both enjoy our careers, friends, family, and are committed to our community. We hope to grow our family to two children through adoption. We will raise your child to have faith, go to church, and when they are old enough to decide to choose their own spiritual path. We will encourage education and make this a priority. We will make sure your child is exposed to many activities to find their gifts and talents. We will make sure your child is surrounded by family, friends and lots of love. We are committed to our marriage and showing a loving relationship and working through hardships in life together. We are a family who eats breakfast and dinner together pretty much every night. We enjoy projects and working on our home as well as community projects together. We both enjoy the Chicago Bears, even when times are tough for the team. We enjoy being outdoors and last minute day trips to explore our area as well as get time together. We both value our families and friends and are blessed with having great ones close by.
We have a routine home visit with the social worker from our agency tonight. It’s the closest thing I guess a waiting family has to a “doctor appointment” in their waiting to adopt process. We love our worker and look forward to the moral support during this long journey of waiting. Once we are placed with a baby our worker and agency will visit us monthly at least for six months to keep us supported and ensure all is well and going smoothly. We have been with our agency waiting for three years and nine months….We have definitely had practice in being patient. A skill we hear is very important in parenting…
We had a great day and weekend. We had our annual Sweet Corn Festival parade party. It’s a day of family, friends, and yummy food. The Parade is pretty awesome too. We can’t to share this tradition with our future little one. We have so much love and fun to share.
