Young, adventurous family seeking to grow through open adoption
Hi! We are Kevin and Becca. We live in a semi rural area of Virginia. Owen (6) is in kindergarten this year and Kate (3) is in preschool at our community center. Kevin works from home and Becca is a stay at home mom and part time artist.
Here’s a few things to know about us. We are committed in our Christian faith and love our extended family. We live on a farm with a large garden and lots of animals. All 4 of us feel happiest outside and adventuring. Kayaking, hiking, bike riding, gardening, and exploring new parks are some of our favorite things to do outside.
In our family, love and respect for one another is a top priority. Authenticity is also very important. We want to have a home that encourages each person to be their best self and encourage the other members of the family. The rooms in our home are painted in happy colors and are projects (from Becca, to the kids, to our family and friends) hangs on the walls. In summer, we play outside all day and in the winter we snuggle up by the fireplace.
We are dreaming of and praying for the baby that will join our family. You are giving life to your sweet baby and we will honor you in his or her life story. We will share his or her heritage and celebrate the adoption that connects our families. We are eagerly preparing to grow our family through adoption.
I’ve been spending a little more time working on art the last week or two. This is going to be for block printing.
Every year on Christmas Eve morning we head to Chuck E Cheese for some crazy fun.
We kicked off winter break with cookies and a trip to the movies.
Next year I’m going to teach a few workshops and one of the classes will be botanical art so I pulled out some past work.
The lights look so magical under the cover of snow! ❄️
Who We Are
Hi! We are Becca and Kevin. We have been married since 2010 and live in a semi-rural area of Virginia. Kevin is an engineer, working from home most days. Becca is a stay at home mom and part time artist.
We have a small farm with chickens, ducks, sheep, goats, and a garden. Becca loves the goats and the garden most of all at the farm. Kevin can build almost anything and loves to be outside as often as possible.
Some of our favorite things to do together are ride bikes, go exploring in the woods, enjoy a bonfire, eat family dinner at the kitchen counter (especially pizza!), and walk to the school bus stop.
Our faith in Jesus is a central part of our lives. We study the Bible together, attend church weekly, and pray every day. We are committed to our extended families and travel several times a year to visit relatives all over the country.
Today could be a really hard day. My husband had his wisdom teeth pulled this morning. One kid is home sick and one is arguing with me about everything. It would be easy to shrug my shoulders and leave the TV on all day.
But I don’t want to give up or give in. So we drove to the dentist and run home car errands with kids bundled up. And my daughter helped me color these noodles. I’ve never tried it before but I’m planning to have the kids make necklaces later. It’s a great quiet activity for a sick day and helps work on fine motor skills.
And in truth, there will be a lot of TV today. I just want to dig deep each day and live my life on purpose. In this season of at home mothering and waiting for adoption, this means colored noodles and peanut butter sandwiches and kids tv shows. And it’s just what I want it to be.
Today was a really strange day. It was 67 out and gloriously sunny. I spent time outside and in the evening we had some of my (Becca’s) family over for an early Christmas party with tasty food and cookie decorating. We all watched Elf together afterwards.
Although the weather was very NOT like Christmas, the day was definitely fun and festive. Only a few more days until Christmas now.
