Michael and Cassie

We are Michael and Cassie from Washington State. We are proud and happy in the life we share together and want so much to start our family. We are excited about the possibility to adopt since we cannot have children biologically. We cannot picture a future without little footsteps. We believe it is a huge honor and privilege to become adoptive parents and we accept our responsibilities with the utmost respect and commitment.

We hope our birth family will find comfort in knowing our child will have a comfortable life living on a small farm in Washington where there are horses, chickens, dogs, and a huge yard to play in. Our child will have the opportunity to enjoy horseback riding, camping, road trips, evening bonfires, spending time as a family, etc. Our child will be provided and supported in any opportunity they desire. This includes any level of education they desire. They will grow up in a community with every opportunity imaginable at their fingertips- or at least within 30 minutes away.

We want to honor the wishes our birth family has for our child. We say OUR child – because to us, “our” includes the birth family. Our child will grow up knowing that everyone made and makes the best decision for them. Our child will grow up with parents that love them, 2 sets of grandparents that have been married 40+ years, 2 great grandmothers, aunties, uncles – and 3 cousins who are all under the age of 3. Most importantly, our child will grow up knowing that love surrounds them always. To learn more about Michael and Cassie visit their adoption profile: http://michaelandcassieadopt.com/

 

 

George and Eric

We are George and Eric and this is our daughter Maribella on one of our annual family vacations. We have been together for 23 years. Six years ago, we had the great honor of adopting our daughter. She came to live with us when she was only 3 weeks old. On her 6th birthday this last September, she told us she

was ready to be a big sister. We want to grow our family but were waiting for her to be ready and now she is.

Our Promise to You: Your child will have and know unconditional love. They will be raised in an inclusive household surrounded and supported by family and friends. They will find their passions in life. They will be encouraged to dream big and live life to the fullest. They will know where they come from. They will know the love you give them and they will know their story.

We are open to any gender, any ethnicity, and even multiple births such as twins or even triplets. One of the benefits your child will have is a stay at home parent. We are CPR/First Aid certified, home study approved, FBI background checked, and extensively trained as former foster parents.

You can also check out our family website where you can read our letter to you, see more about us, and look at our home life.www.AdoptingAndLoving.com

We send you best wishes and much love and support. Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child.

 

Dave and Ellen

Thank you for taking the time to read this and find out a little bit about us.  We are Dave and Ellen and are honored that you may be considering us as a possible adoptive family for your child.  While we cannot know what this experience is like for you please know that we respect and honor your courage and strength in considering adoption for your child.  We live in Washington State and have been together for 18 years (married for 15) and are very excited by the possibility of welcoming another child into our family.  

We joyfully welcomed our son Miles in 2011 and treasure the adventures we have together as a family.  We both grew up with siblings (Ellen is one of five and Dave is one of three) and hoped to have more children, but are unable to do so on our own.  We hope to be able to grow our family through adoption and have the opportunity to parent and share our love and open-hearts with you and your child.

 Ellen is warm, thoughtful, and intuitive. She enjoys playing outdoors, reading books and doing yoga. In her professional life, Ellen enjoys working as an anthropologist and is passionate about understanding and protecting the past and other cultures. Ellen grew up in Virginia and comes from a large blended family consisting of siblings, nieces, nephews and step-family.   Ellen’s brother was adopted as a newborn, influencing her perspective and awareness about adoption.  Ellen’s siblings are very close and are supportive of each other and Ellen and Dave's adoption hopes.

Dave is easy-going, gentle and intellectually curious. He enjoys the outdoors, gardening, skiing, and playing guitar. Dave recently made the decision to stay at home full-time.  In his professional life, Dave enjoys working in a field and laboratory setting as an environmental microbiologist.  Dave grew up in Seattle and spent time skiing, hiking and camping.  Dave is close to his Mom and siblings and texts and talks to them often. Dave's mom and brother's family are a big part of Dave and Ellen’s family life, and they visit and/or vacation together often.

We consider ourselves to be a progressive family and believe in tolerance and compassion for all.  Work and family life balance are very important to us. We are fortunate for Ellen to be able to work part-time and for Dave to be at home full time.  We strongly believe in providing a loving and nurturing environment for your child and that our job as parents is to teach emotional development, lovingness and respect for each other and others.  We also hope to provide multiple opportunities for self-enrichment and fulfillment so that your child has a strong foundation to become their truest selves.  Our greatest desire for your child is that they are secure in their place in the world, are able to pursue their passions, have fun, and develop the emotional tools they need to have love and compassion for themselves and others. 

We hope to maintain an open and honest relationship with you and your child's extended birth family and are flexible about any degree of adoption openness you are comfortable with.  It is difficult to convey in words and photographs all about who we are as people, parents and a family, but hopefully you can get to know us a little better through our portfolio. We care about you and your emotional well-being and hope we can provide the support you need if you decide to move forward with making an adoption plan with our family.  Whatever you decide, our hearts are with you. Please read more about us at: kennedyfamilyadopt.com

Warmest wishes,

Ellen, Dave and Miles

Nate and Kelly 

Hi! We are Kelly and Nate, parents of two delightful little boys, ages 5 and 4. Our hope is to add one more little person who needs our family (and two big brothers!) through adoption. Because we have children, we completely respect how enormous the decision to consider adoption for your baby must be.

Family is what we do. Nate is self-employed and Kelly is a stay-at-home mom. Nate enjoys gardening and golf, and Kelly likes to read and run. Most of our time is spent with our kids. Our boys love to be outside, read, play trucks, build, sing, ride bikes, and help mom and dad. We have a large extended family ready to help us welcome a new member.

Thank you for deciding to go through your pregnancy and considering adoption for your baby- both decisions take resolve and the ability to look beyond the moments of uncertainty and apprehension.

Please get to know our family at kellyandnate2017.blogspot.com.

 

 

Bob and Jessica

Bob and Jessica lead a very active life with their two children, twins, Robbie and Sidney. Having their twins was, to date, the best surprise of their lives. Both children cannot wait to be a big brother and a big sister. Daily, Robbie and Sidney ask when they will get to teach, read, and play with a younger sibling. However, they are most excited to cuddle!

Our family lives on the middle of our family farm. We built our home above the Snake River breaks. We have a large extended family. We built our home to handle many family  gatherings. We wanted our home to be full of love and laughter. We feel we have accomplished this, but we are missing just one small piece: a third baby to bring home!

 Bob is a Physical Education teacher and a High School Assistant Basketball Coach. This is his 20th year as a teacher. During this time he has been a strong role model for many children. His hobbies include taking his kids, nieces and nephews, and cousins hunting. He likes to go camping, fishing, shooting, gardening, playing with his children, and supporting our local basketball team. Most importantly Bob is a GREAT father. He is ALWAYS there for his children no matter what the circumstance may be. His favorite time is in the evening when he can snuggle and read to his children.

 Jessica is a High School Social Studies teacher. She has taught at our local high school for the past ten years. She loves being a mom to her twins. She cannot wait for the day when she has three children to love. Her hobbies include cooking for the many family and friends who come through her front door, camping, quilting, reading, and hiking. Most importantly, she loves to watch and guide her children as they grow.  Family and family time is extremely important to Jessica.

As a family we are WSU Cougar fans. We like to attend both football and basketball games. We are very active in the outdoors. We enjoy gardening, camping, hiking, playing in the river and time with our dogs, and our horse. We spend a lot of time with our family and friends.

If you choose us for your child they will grow up in a loving and supportive home. Family is important to us and we are important to them. Your child can participate in many activities such as library time, T-Ball, Basketball Camps, Church Camp and many more!

Thank you for considering us! https://www.facebook.com/searchingforbabywolf/

 

Kevin and Lena

Hello! We are Kevin and Lena  from Othello, Washington. We have been married for almost 12 years and enjoying living near plenty of family.  We have always hoped to use adoption to expand our family.

We have been blessed with four beautiful children whom we love and adore. After the birth of our last child three years ago, we both couldn’t shake the feeling that someone was missing.  Which is weird when you already have four, right?!  I had some difficult pregnancies which did not make another one an option so we have turned to adoption.  We know there is someone out there that belongs here and that will love having a big family full of noise and adventure.

Kevin works on the family dairy and processing plant with his brothers and dad where they bottle and sell milk and other dairy products.  There is also a family farm that is full of tractors, hay bales, and lots of manure.  Our kids love feeding the cows out there and playing with all the farm cats. It has been a great place to raise our family.

Lena works a few days a month at our local hospital as a registered nurse.  She primarily stays at home with the children but picks up a few shifts here and there.  She particularly loves labor and delivery nursing and helping families adjust to new babies.  She spends most days shuttling children to piano lessons and keeping everyone’s routines running smoothly.

Isak, (10), loves reading, Minecraft, legos, and board games. He is a great big brother and happens to LOVE babies. Lucy, (8), is our outgoing, friendly girl who likes to draw, play the piano, and sing.  Edyn, (5), is our fiery daughter who keeps us on our toes. She loves all thing sea life, asking incessant questions, and science.  Quinn, (3), is our sweet boy who loves nerf darts and trucks.  He is ALL boy and loves to jump, run, and play in the dirt.

We cannot begin to imagine what a difficult process this is for you but we hope you will consider us in your adoption. We love being parents and having a big family and are so excited for the next one.  

 

Bruce and Kellie

“We are a family that enjoys working and playing to life’s fullest.”

Together, Bruce, Kellie, and their 8-year-old son, Charlie, “enjoy playing all year round fishing, swimming, skiing, sledding, horseback riding, bike riding and camping.” Bruce and Kellie married in 2006, two years later they adopted their son Charlie. They describe Charlie as an “amazing young boy who is outgoing and spirited.” He enjoys playing sports and playing with animals. Bruce and Kellie enjoy being parents and love having Charlie. They are hoping to expand their family through the means of adoption again.

Bruce and Kellie live on the family farm. Bruce is the 5th generation farmer in his family to farm the 1600 acre farm. He enjoys the flexibility it brings as well as being able to “teach” Charlie about “machinery, soils, crop production and animals. Bruce is a hard worker, a family man and a loyal individual. He will go out of his way “to be there for his wife and son.”

Kellie currently works in a local childcare center as a childcare worker. She enjoys her job working with children and appreciates that it can be flexible and she can bring her own children to work with her. Kellie and Bruce are both active in their local Methodist Church. Kellie spends a lot of her free time organizing and facilitating Sunday school programs at their church.

Bruce, Kellie and Charlie are an active family. In addition to farming grains, they also have chickens, goats, cats, a dog and a horse.

“Family is very important and the second priority only to God.”
