Hi! We are Bob and Kelly. Thank you for taking the time to read about our lives. We admire your courage and strength in taking this difficult step to choose adoption for your baby and are humbled by your sacrifice. We hope you find comfort in knowing that your sacrifice means more than words could ever convey to a childless couple such as ourselves. As you take this journey in making your important decisions, we hope that this glimpse into our lives will help you to get to know us a little better. We hope you find the perfect loving family you seek.
Bob’s thoughts on Kelly
Kelly is my soul mate in life. I know with all my heart that Kelly is the one that God has always had in mind for me. I love her more than words can say and feel she is one of the most generous, caring, loving, and thoughtful people I know. She gives me the strength to face each day with everything I have to offer it. Kelly is always willing to lend a helping hand to not only me but to others. She goes out of her way to make sure that others are not wanting or hurting and that they realize that they do matter. Kelly is my best friend. I feel very fortunate to be married to her and have her in my life. My wish for her is to have the opportunity to be a mother. I see how she is with our nieces, nephews, friend’s children, and cousins. There is no doubt she will be a great mother and that we will make an outstanding team as parents. Kelly will be an excellent mother, and I can’t wait to see her in that role!
Kelly’s Thoughts on Bob
Bob is a wonderful husband and friend. We work together around the house, play together, and have adventures together. When we met, he was an answer to many prayers and a stabilizing force in my life. I am always amazed of his calming nature. His patience never ceases to amaze me. He always thinks through a problem and finds the best possible solution. His loyalty to friends and family makes me respect him even more. When I see him interact with children, I know he will make an awesome dad. If I ever doubt myself or get discouraged, he is always there for me. We share common goals and always strive to fulfill each other’s needs. Bob is consistent regardless of who he is around. Another quality I enjoy is his humor. He is constantly making me laugh! Needless to say, I love him and can’t imagine my life without him.
Our friends and Family
We get together with our families as often as we can for dinners or barbecues. Our families are just as excited for us as we go through this adoption journey and they constantly call us for updates! Our nephews and nieces keep asking us when they will get to meet their new cousin and are so excited!
Bob’s Mom and Dad still live in the house that Bob was raised in. We just celebrated their 50th wedding Anniversary! His parents have been there for us throughout this whole process from the beginning. They are excited in the prospect of having another grandchild and spoiling him/her! Bob’s sister, brother-in-law and nephew also live within a 5 minute drive.
Like Bob’s parents, Kelly’s parents live in the same house that Kelly was raised in. They are also excited about having another grandchild to spoil! Kelly’s older sister Kim and brother-in-law Dan and their twins Emily and Thomas live a few miles from us as well as her older brother Kevin and his wife Danielle.
Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs. We both have a great group of close friends who are excited for us as we continue this process.
Our Home and Community
We live in a 3 bedroom ranch style house with a huge backyard and deck. Our dogs love the amount of space that we have because it gives them a lot of room to run and play. It will be perfect for a child! It is great for hosting our family and friends for parties and barbecues or just for a quiet Sunday dinner! Our neighborhood is quiet and family oriented with many parks, beaches and amusements within a few minutes’ drive.
Our Message to you
We have so much love to share and are excited to have the opportunity to expand our family through adoption. If we are given this privilege to adopt your baby, always know we will unconditionally love and cherish your child and they will forever know the sacrifices you have made out of love. Thank you once again for taking the time to read our story. We wish you all the best in everything you do, especially in the coming months when you will be faced with some tough decisions. We respect your decision to follow your heart and pray that God will give you the strength and courage to do what is best for your child.
Kelly and Bob
