Katie & Kevin
Hoping to Adopt (Illinois)
You are a special person and we care about you deeply.
Hi, we're Kevin & Katie.
Even though we don't know you yet, we have been praying for the health and well being of you and your baby. No matter what you decide, we sincerely hope the best for you and your child. We cannot truly understand what you are going through, but we know you are having to make a very difficult choice. It is obvious to us that your decisions are being made from a place of love and compassion. You already are a caring parent. If you choose to pursue an adoption plan with us, we want to share that we believe whole heartedly that a child should know and be connected to their roots. This is why it's important for us to embrace an open adoption. We want you to be pleased with your decisions and feel at peace with what the future holds. This journey can have struggles with many ups and downs. You are a special person and we care about you deeply.
This Is Our Story
Communication, honesty and strong faith are the cornerstone of our marriage.
When Kevin proposed
We were, and still are, active in a running group and met at a social event, a Jimmy Buffet cover band concert. We believe it was absolutely God's timing! It was so special, and we met on Valentine's Day. After that, we saw each other and got to know one another more through our running group and became friends before we began dating. We learned that we had a lot in common...love of music, family, fitness, and faith. We both enjoy the outdoors and included picnics and hiking as part of our dating journey. We got engaged on a trip to Colorado on the top of a mountain. The following year, we were married at a beautiful church surrounded by friends and family. We are a great team, and our love and relationship grows better every day. Katie is very outgoing, bubbly, and has never met a stranger. Kevin is quieter, kind, creative, and enthusiastic. This makes for a wonderful partnership. Communication, honesty and strong faith are the cornerstone of our marriage. We both feel grateful to be blessed with one another and can't wait to share our loving home with a child through adoption.
I am proud to share that my life has been devoted to children.
Katie is a teacher
I am proud to share that my life has been devoted to children. After 22 years of teaching, I understand the many needs children may have. Both of my parents were teachers. My love for children continues to grow and my efforts to help them increase every year. My time with kiddos warms my heart and spreads joy in my life. I have referred to my students as "my babies" for decades and am very excited to be able to have a child that Kevin and I can parent together. My mom has always been my hero. Watching her be a mom has made me dream to be an amazing mom as well. I was raised within a faithful Christian family and had friends around me to support our values. Our respect for all life has been valued for our entire lives. My dad, brother, and sister have also been a part of my life and continue to encourage and support me. Both of my siblings have been married for many years and are each blessed with four amazing children. This dedication and selfless living is in our future with the grace of God blessing us with a family. Many of my favorite things to do are enjoyed outside. A few of them are running, hiking, golfing, and yard "work." I also love to sing, dance, and enjoy yoga, too.
I am fortunate to have found a career that I love.

I am fortunate to have found a career that I love. Katie and I both are fortunate. I work in creative services at a tv station as a video producer. I have been working there for over 20 years within different positions. It allows me to work on all sorts of different projects and is always interesting. I also do freelance and production work for businesses, individuals, and not for profits. I enjoy volunteering at an organization for veterans, local missions, and Special Olympics. I love to listen to music and going to concerts. Sunday mornings I play the guitar and sing in the choir (Katie too) at our church. I really enjoy fitness and eating healthy. Katie and I make it a point to have that as part of our daily lives. I also like beekeeping which is a project I have been doing the last several years with my sister. Every chance I get I am outdoors hiking or running on trails. I am blessed to have found Katie, and we are really excited to share our lives and love with a child through adoption.
