A Letter from Eric & Kelly

Dear Birthmother,

Words cannot convey how thankful we are for your consideration. We are an active, Christian couple and we have always wanted to share our lives and love with a child. We have not been able to conceive, so after many prayers, we feel God has lead us to adoption. We believe adoption is our plan and are very excited to become first-time parents. We promise that your baby’s life will be filled with love, faith, family, and laughter.  Please know that you will be in our thoughts and prayers.

About Us

Shortly after we started dating, we knew we were meant to be together. We have been happily married for 18 years and our lives have been full of love, laughter, and amazing experiences! We enjoy taking family vacations to the beach, historical sites, and amusement parks. Spending quality time together is very important to us and it definitely makes our relationship stronger. We love having picnics and game nights with family and friends, walking our dogs, attending car shows, and helping with youth activities at church.

Eric is a loving husband who is always there with support and reassurance. Eric is always doing something whether it is working on his classic car or landscaping around the house. He is always there to lend a helping hand to friends and family members. Eric is a truck designer and takes great pride in his work. He will be a wonderful and devoted father. He lights up when playing with our niece and thinks the world of her. I know that he will find many experiences to share with your baby to help them be an honest, caring, and responsible individual.

More About Our Family
Our Special Interests

Some of our favorite things include going to the drive-in movie theater, walking our dogs, and taking day trips to area attractions. We enjoy vacationing at the beach, Disney World, and attending Broncos and Rams NFL games. We love spending time with family and friends, and we have a lot of fun together. From family picnics to hanging out around the fire pit, toasting marshmallows and telling stories, we have so many memories of our times together. Family time is a very important aspect of our lives!

Our Faith

We are practicing Protestants and are active in our congregation through attending church and volunteering in various activities, including Vacation Bible School, fundraisers, and Sunday School. We strongly believe that a child should be raised saying prayers at meals and bedtime and participating in church activities. We believe that God has a plan for us and that He has lead us to adoption. Our faith is a very prominent part of our lives and we would love to pass that on to a child.

Our Musical Interest

Music is very important to us because we both play instruments. Eric plays the guitar and Kelly plays the clarinet and piano.
We listen to all kinds of music including rock, country, pop, and classical. Eric's favorite artist is the rock band, KISS, and Kelly's favorite is the country band, Rascal Flatts.
