Indiana Family Open to Special Needs, Age, Siblings!

We are Julie and Kirk, parents of Thomas, Henry, Rory, Sam, Savannah and Isaac. We met through a personal ad that Julie placed in a local newspaper after watching Oprah’s tips on how to write a successful ad. We quickly became best friends and our wedding took place about a year and a half after we met. We’ve been married now for nearly 25 years and are still going strong. We love one another and our children and just enjoy being together. As a family, we are laid back and calm. We are not constantly busy so that the kids have time to just be kids and play. The kids are involved in various activities of their choice including gymnastics and robotics. We love some routines such as Friday night movie nights and dinner together at the table but also love spontaneous road trips and festivals and trips to the beach.

Who We Are

Allow us to introduce our amazing kiddos!

Thomas is a full-time senior in college. He was diagnosed with Autism at age 3 and has overcome so many challenges in life. He works at Goodwill during the summers and maintains a “B” average at school. He drives, has a girlfriend, and loves being away at school. He is kind and has the best sense of humor. His goal is to become a Social Worker and work in the field of adoption.

Henry is 18 years old and was recently accepted into the University of Michigan where he will attend school in the fall. He’s the project manager for one of the school clubs and is busy building an airplane. He enjoys anything aviation-related and hopes to one day attain his pilot’s license. He volunteers with cat rescue and loves spending time with his younger siblings. Henry maintains an A average and takes advanced classes.

Rory came home from China at age 2. He was the cutest toddler with this crazy laugh and wild sense of humor. He still has his crazy laugh which makes us laugh! He is now 15 and is attends high school. Rory has Global Developmental Delays and is educated in the regular classroom. He made B Honor Roll last year and is hoping to do the same this year! His favorite subject is Science and he loves to talk about weather or moon phases. In his free time, he loves playing Nintendo and Pokemon. His favorite foods are Dumplings and noodles (He wanted me to add that part about food. lol)

Sam was born in South Carolina. Julie was the first person to hold him and was right there to coach his birth mom during labor. It was a beautiful experience that she will never forget! Sam is now in 3rd grade and is so proud of himself and his reading abilities. He’s smart, funny, inquisitive and just a great guy. He loves cartoons and cars and swimming. His favorite food is hot dogs. He even dressed up as a hot dog last Halloween! We have an open adoption with Sam’s birth family.

Savannah is another South Carolina baby. We found out that she was being born and went to the hospital immediately! Her birth mom chose a closed adoption at first but we have since formed a really great relationship with Savannah’s birth family. Savannah is very artistic and loves drawing and painting. She will be entering first grade this fall and is doing very well! She loves horses and wants to take horseback riding lessons. She also loves cats and stuffed animals.

Isaac came home to us at the age of 6 months. He was born here in the USA but his birth parents are both from China. He has a few delays but is catching up. His favorite things include iPhones, remote controls and chasing cats around the house. We have an open adoption with his birth family as well.

Adoption Diary

Fall is Falling….

I guess that’s what Fall does!  I don’t know but it’s nice to have a change.  I love the leaves and the cooler air.
