Thank you so much for giving us this time to introduce ourselves and tell you about our family. We are grateful that you love your unborn child so much that you are willing to consider an adoption plan for him or her. We cannot even imagine what a difficult and emotional time you are experiencing. We want you to know that we will be here as a support to you and your child.
We are already parents, so we know that words cannot express the love between parents and their children. We adopted both of our sons. Kurt was adopted a few years ago and we adopted Lincoln last year. We have open adoptions with both of their birth families. We see them several times throughout the year. We love staying connected as much as possible, so they will grow up with and get to know any siblings and family.
We live a very active and busy life. We spend many weekends finding things to do. Our favorites are going to the park, zoo, or visiting family. Grandma (Jen’s mom) lives with us, so the kids have a lot of quality grandma time while we work. We visit very frequently with family and friends that are close by. We have started a new tradition of weekly dinners; it allows us to keep in touch with everyone. Our friends and family that live a long distance away, are seen at least once or twice a year in person. We FaceTime them to stay connected until our next visit.
Our home is in a beautiful neighborhood near many parks, beaches, and hiking trails. We are within one of the top school districts in Wisconsin. We enjoy watching Kurt as he plays some of his favorite sports in school (soccer, basketball). The teachers and staff have been phenomenal and are always very helpful, even through this crazy pandemic. We love watching Lincoln explore and learn as he is growing.
If we are the family that you are looking for your child, we will encourage them to explore to find their true interests. Whatever their interests are (music, sports, education, etc) we will foster and provide opportunities for them to grow in their passion. We would love and cherish your child completely. We would be able to give your child a life full of love, support, and opportunities. If you choose an open adoption, we already have some experience with that and are more than willing to work with you.
Jen and Keith (and Kurt and Lincoln too!)
