Kevin & Lindsey

First, we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the opportunity to potentially become parents! We've been on our journey, as have you, and our paths have now crossed! We are filled with so many exciting thoughts and feelings surrounding this process, and we are thankful that you have considered our profile. We'll be praying you feel peace with your decision.

What It Means to Become Parents

Meeting Our New Cousin

We know that we have both wanted to be parents for as long as we remember. We thankfully have each other, and we have been praying to add children to our family, but haven't been blessed with a biological child. We both mentioned early on while dating that we would be open to adoption if for some reason we couldn't have children, and here we are. We don't know the reason, but everything happens for a reason.

We are excited and very thankful for the adoption process. We are encouraged by the opportunity to provide a loving home for a child and watch them grow and provide opportunities/adventures along the way. No fairy tale is without its ups and downs, but that is part of being a family and going through this life together. To be called "Mom" and "Dad," how can one put words to that feeling and responsibility?

Our Leisure Time

Riverboat Ride in Thailand

We like to work hard to provide for our basic needs as well as work hard to be able to RELAX.

We love to travel and enjoy the world and all of its offerings. There is so much to be seen and so little time to see it. We have been able to take several wonderful trips over the past few years. We plan on continuing to take trips and see the world with a child.

While we are home, Lindsey enjoys teaching her workout classes in the neighborhood and spending time with her sister and our niece.

Kevin enjoys working around the house, working out, and spending time outdoors such as hunting with his dad.

Together, we like to get comfy on the couch and watch a few TV shows in front of the fireplace with the puppies.

Whether it is a family movie night at home, or traveling to explore a new place, we cannot wait to share our lives with a child and make new memories as a family!

Our Family Traditions

Cutting Down Our Christmas Tree

We both just smiled thinking of our family traditions and being able to share them with a child!

We travel to Colorado to be with Kevin's older brother and his family of 5 around Valentine's Day. We go skiing, watch movies, and enjoy family time.

Each summer we go to North Carolina for Lindsey's family reunion. We go boating, water skiing, jet-skiing, paddle boarding, tubing, fishing, and have even more family time. At the end of summer, we head to the Jersey Shore, Lindsey's hometown, with the other side of Lindsey's family. We rent a beach house with her sister and family and spend time at the beach and boardwalk, good food and more family. We may end the trip in New York city for a few nights.

In the fall we spend a weekend camping and bicycling with Kevin's family, which has been a family tradition since Kevin was little. Every other Thanksgiving we travel to Aruba with Lindsey's family, which provides for great relaxation and a break from the Illinois winter. Then we begin with the holiday traditions, including cutting down our own Christmas tree and all the family gatherings including those traveling in from out-of-state, cookie making, moving watching and shopping trips.

Our House and Neighborhood

Our Home

We live in a quaint community in Illinois that is very charming. Our home is brick, two-stories, has three bedrooms, and as unique as the neighborhood. We have a small city feel and not only are we within walking distance to restaurants/shopping and hiking trails, but we have great parks and schools in the neighborhood. We can ride our bikes to the farmers market or take a walk along what President Roosevelt named as one of the prettiest drives in the United States.

All of our neighbors are a friendly group. In fact, two of which have recently welcomed little boys that are now 6-12 months old, and another couple have recently adopted two little ones! It seems straight out of a movie as we are walking the dogs waving hello to everyone or stopping for a chat.

Our neighborhood continues to have block-parties for Halloween and the Fourth of July, two great times of the year! Our area is so popular, there are approximately 1000+ trick-or-treaters that come through! We also have the annual Fourth of July neighborhood parade, in which we all walk with our dogs decorated, the children decorate their bikes, and we end at a neighbor's house with the fire truck waiting there to spray the big hose for all the kids!

Our Extended Families

Kevin With Our Niece & Nephew

We come from close-knit families. Our families enjoy the holidays and any chance we have to gather. Kevin's parents live nearby and are the most wonderful support system. They are available the second they are needed. Kevin has two older brothers, one lives nearby and the other in Colorado. Both brothers are married and each have three children.

Lindsey & Our Niece

Lindsey's parents live in Florida, which provides an excellent getaway, but they also visit Illinois frequently. Lindsey and her parents talk on the phone every day. Lindsey has a sister (her best friend), who is married with one daughter. Lindsey's sister lives across the street, so it will be wonderful for our child to have a cousin and playmate so near!

Everyone is excited for the possible addition of a new grandchild, niece/nephew, and cousin!

From Us to You

We are so thankful that you are viewing our profile and considering us for such an amazing blessing. We may never know why our paths have crossed, but ultimately they have and we are so excited.

We have been together for almost five years and married for three. Although we love our life together, we know there is a piece missing. Becoming parents would be the greatest gift and is something we have both dreamed of for many years.

We both work in the medical field. Kevin is a Chiropractor as well as a Nurse Practitioner. Lindsey has also obtained a Master's degree as a Nurse Practitioner. We currently work together in the Urgent Care setting as part of a larger organization. We both have a flexible schedule and are able to arrange it so that one of us would be home with the child.

We promise to love your child unconditionally, to give them every opportunity we can, to support their dreams and to be there for them through the good times and the not-so-good times. We promise to guide them to be the best they can be and fulfill their God-given potential. We will be open and honest when they start inquiring about their birth parents and let them know they are loved in so many ways. We realize the magnitude of the decision being made and have the utmost respect for you and your decision to consider adoption.

We will keep you updated and keep you informed of the major milestones in your child's life. We'll send pictures and letters and will agree to meetings if you'd like. We look forward to meeting you and discussing how you would like to move forward with contact regarding emails and pictures/etc. We realize we don't have all the answers and will continue to learn and seek the best method to communicate the child's adoption to them.

We have such an awesome support network of family and friends. This child will be loved by so many people! Our family is very close-knit and everyone is so excited to meet the newest family member!

We both have had wonderful upbringings and we pray you allow us to do the same for your child. We hope your decision comes naturally and that it just feels right, as we know you've had to make many decisions throughout this process.

Thank you again for considering us as part of this process!

God Bless,

Kevin & Lindsey
