Pete & Kelly
Greetings! Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little bit about us. We hope our fun and caring personalities shine through! We have considered adoption for many years and feel the time is right for us to start a family. We are honored to be part of this journey and for the opportunity to share our love with a child.
Our Leisure Time
We lead an active lifestyle and have a lot of fun together! We are both supportive of local activities. We opened our home to foreign exchange students to cook meals for the international food night at the high school. We attend the local schools' band concerts, events at the local theater and attend sporting events at the junior high and high school. We play in a local softball league, snowmobile, ride ATV's, play ping-pong in the basement and attend family and friend gatherings often.
Kelly volunteers as an Olympia Leadership Advocate. She meets with five high school girls once a month to review a leadership curriculum. She shares her experiences as a woman leading groups, projects and companies. Kelly also recently became an elected trustee member of the local private high school.
Pete likes to play his guitar and use his tractor.
We also like to travel to new places and hit some of our favorites regularly. We enjoy discussing how we will incorporate a child into all of this. We are excited to go to similar places to play and see it all through the perspective of a child!
What Makes Us Unique
We are spontaneous and enjoy taking advantage of the next opportunity for an adventure! For example, in Texas we played MoJo kickball. It is a game made up by some locals and is a morph of baseball and dodgeball. We also took an opportunity to extend a work trip into a girls weekend in London, including a tour of the Downton Abbey Castle. Another time we got together a group of friends at an AirBnB in New Orleans for New Year's. However, we also have been known to leave the house to go to the store and deciding, it's a nice day, let's go to the national park for a hike! We do not try to over plan or over think the opportunities we are presented, allowing us to make new friends from all walks of life. Whether it be Texas, Ohio, several other states in the U.S., Canada or Germany, there are spare bedrooms at the ready for our family to visit!
Fun Facts About Us:
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in Maine which is referred to as Vacationland! We love living in Maine, because it has four distinct seasons that each offer endless outdoor activities. Our town has a population of approximately 4,200 people and offers a very family friendly environment. We live in a rural setting, but our downtown is only ten minutes away. The local school system is known to be one of the best in the region and offers many diverse opportunities for learning such as music, foreign language and theater programs. Youth sports are very popular. We attend many music, theater and sporting events. They're all a great way to interact with the community.
Our home is located on five acres and has mountain views! There is lots of room to run, play, ride bikes or snowmobile! Our house is a large three bedroom home surrounded by many beautiful trees. The layout of our home is an open concept with a fire place in the living room. During meals we often see deer, turkey and a variety of other birds on our property. We also enjoy picking apples, wild strawberries and raspberries that grow in our backyard! We have a large walkout basement where we enjoy playing ping pong and entertaining family and friends. The setting of our home will be a wonderful place for a child to grow up and explore!
Our Extended Families
We live in Kelly's home town, where many immediate and extended families live. We often visit and interact with local family on a weekly basis. Examples include attending our nephews sporting events and taking them to the local ice cream parlor! We also love to host or attend BBQ's with friends and family throughout the year...and of course a favorite meal is steaming fresh Maine lobster!
During the summer our favorite activity is "Lake Life!" We are very lucky to have a pristine lake just minutes from our home where several family members have waterfront properties. While at the lake we enjoy boating, fishing, and relaxing with family. The children in our extended family love to go tubing and swimming!
Pete's parents and siblings live out of state, but enjoy coming to Maine for visits. During a recent summer vacation four of Pete's nieces visited and spent a week at the lake with us. The girls enjoyed endless hours of swimming and playing games together. Highlights for the girls were going for ATV rides with "Uncle Pete and Aunt Kelly!" and playing on the giant rainbow unicorn float! Even though Pete's family lives out of state, we stay in close contact via social media and annual trips to visit.
We are thrilled to have the opportunity to grow our family and share our adventures and things we love the most with a child!
From Us to You
Hello! We are Kelly and Pete. We have been married for over twelve years, together for about fourteen. We currently do not have any children and are tremendously excited to grow our family and provide a lifetime of love, support and adventures. We appreciate and respect you for taking part in this life-changing journey. The fact you are reading this speaks volumes for how much you care about your child. We are grateful for the chance to share our story and hope you enjoy getting to know us better.
Thank you for taking the time to review our profile and consider us as adoptive parents. We are happy to support you in your difficult and courageous decision. We are thankful for the opportunity to provide a fun, loving and supportive home. We are committed to providing guidance and opportunities to allow strong, healthy and successful growth of a child.
Should you pursue adoption and select us, please have comfort in knowing the child will always know you and the difficult, courageous, loving decision you made. We will always be positive about you and your decision, never denying the child the opportunity to have more people in their life to love and care for them. We have built an excellent support system. We intend to instill the importance of having a great support system whether that be immediate or extended family, friends or community members.
Depending on your comfort level and wishes, we look forward to keeping you informed and allow you to watch the growth and development. We plan to share pictures, letters, updates, and are open to a reunion in person. We are open to methods that are mutually agreeable, such as having a shared media site we can maintain and you can check in on whenever you want. We intend to share a life book with the child at an early age using age-appropriate conversation, and we will ensure the child knows who you are. We truly believe everything happens for a reason and look forward to learning more about you.
We are both very outgoing and enjoy living full lives. As the oldest sibling in each of our families, we both tend to be natural leaders. We have been through a lot as a couple; we supported each other through challenges such as college degrees, a police academy, and remodeling several homes. Through the good and the bad times, we always try to build on each other's strengths and weaknesses. In that sense, we are in fact a good team. Words can't describe how thrilled we are to start this next chapter in our lives.
We will provide a safe loving environment with the support, guidance and freedom to choose their own path in life. We will encourage good education, a thirst for knowledge for whatever their passion may be. Whether they are college bound or want to learn a trade, our goal is to be supportive and provide the guidance, tools and opportunities for success.
Life is a journey, and we always try to make the best of every situation. We are active, spontaneous, and hard-working people. We embody the work hard play hard approach to life and love to have fun. We are very excited to incorporate a child into our lives by mentoring, teaching, and playing together as a family.
We have always considered adoption the most logical approach to building our family. We take life head on, adapting to whatever situations present themselves with optimism. We both are fun, loving and supportive people. We are kind, respectful and loyal and build our home around those core values.
There is no higher gift than the gift of life. We are honored you have taken the time to get to know us a little bit and consider allowing us to have the amazing opportunity and responsibility of raising a miracle child. We wish you peace and love.
