From Us to You

Dear Expectant Mother,

There is so much we would like to tell you about ourselves to help you in your decision, but first we would like to talk about you. We cannot pretend to know what you are going through or how difficult the choice to place your unborn child in the arms of another can be. We want you to know that we think you are one of the bravest and most courageous people there is! We believe you are making this decision with your baby’s best interest at heart. We know you want your child to have the best life they can possibly have and that is exactly what we want to give them! Please be assured that your child will be absolutely consumed by love and bring constant and immeasurable joy to our family! We have dreamed about being parents our whole lives! Now that we are parents to an amazing little girl, our hearts are so full of joy and love that there is no question that we want to grow our family again and welcome another baby! We cannot wait to watch two children bond, grow and learn together!

Not having children was never an option for us. Infertility issues led us to the choice of adoption and we could not be more thrilled to have adopted our beautiful Emily! To us you do not have to have the same blood to be a family, and raising our children will be the most rewarding thing we get to do in this world! We cannot wait to love, teach and nurture your baby as our own! We look forward to rocking and singing them to sleep, to just holding them, to being woken up in the middle of the night because of a bad dream, to making a mess making cookies, to experiencing the first love, and the first tear. Those are the moments that bind you and that you cherish for the rest of your life!

We are patient, loving and giving people who will put your child before all else! As a couple we are soul mates, unconditionally in love, and fully devoted to each other! We met through a mutual friend while attending college and instantly knew we were meant to be together! We are problem solvers and very much a team. We would give your child the same unconditional love and devotion that we have for each other! We will teach them right from wrong, how to make good choices and to believe in themselves. We believe in the importance of a good education and would hope to instill a love of knowledge and hard work. We will support him or her no matter what their interests might be, and allow them to experience all kinds of different things. We can already see ourselves as a family of four, making s’mores at night in front of a warm campfire or crowded around a table with popcorn for family game night.

Our neighborhood is a wonderful place for a child to grow up in! There are many young children who live on our street, so making friends will be easy. There is a common area within the small neighborhood where kids can play, in addition to several beautiful parks nearby.

There are a couple professional sports stadiums, amusement and water parks and zoos just a short drive away. More importantly though, we live in an excellent and respected school district where your child would be assured a top quality education!

It will be an honor to get to be parents again and it would mean the world to us! We know now from experience that getting to be a parent is sacred and life’s biggest blessing! We never could have imagined before just how amazing and life changing being a parent can be! Being able to watch a baby grow and learn and make us laugh every day is life’s most rewarding gift! However, parents can never be replaced or forgotten, and we will make sure your child knows just how much they are loved by you, and by us, every single day!

About Jonathan

My husband is the love of my life. He is my soul mate and probably knows me better than I know myself! The moment I saw him, I could not stop staring at him, and I just knew there was something special about him. He is an intelligent man and a technical civil engineer by trade, but is an outdoorsy, country boy at heart. He is the kind of man that puts others’ needs ahead of his own. No one makes me laugh the way he does. We have many inside jokes that only we understand. He keeps me grounded and is my source of strength when I need it. He is a very caring, honest, smart, hardworking and compassionate man. When I see him reading or playing with our daughter, Emily, or see the way he melts when Emily says or does something adorable, my heart is just overwhelmed with love and joy! Jonathan absolutely loves being a father and will be an outstanding dad to a second child!

About Kirah

My wife is a full-time, stay-at-home mom for our daughter Emily. She is a loving and caring wife and an awesome mother. For as long as I have known her, Kirah has been really great with children, and since we have been blessed with Emily that has never been more true. Kirah has such a big heart, and it shows the most when she is around children. She babysits our neighbors’ two sons occasionally, and both Kirah and Emily love playing with both of them. Having worked previously at a day care center, she is very capable with more than one child. Kirah is such an awesome mother to our daughter Emily, and I have no doubt that will be the same for a second child. Kirah is really looking forward to experiencing the joy of raising another child and being a doting mother.

Our Families

We are extremely blessed to have the amazing and loving family that we have! We truly could not have asked for anything better and they cannot wait to welcome a new baby into the family! On Kirah’s side there is her father, step-mother and a younger brother. Kirah’s father and step-mom are already amazing grandparents to Emily and would do anything at the drop of a hat for her and her future sibling! They currently live in California, but are in the process of moving back to Texas to be closer to us and their future grandchild. On Jonathan’s side there is his father, mother and older sister. Jonathan’s parents are the most wonderful grandparents to Emily and would, no doubt, be just as wonderful to their future grandchild! They are the most patient, loving people we have ever met! They have been married around 40 years and have a wonderful home not too far away with a garden and woods perfect for children to run around in!

Our Home

We live in a wonderful, small, quiet neighborhood! The homes are 1 and 2 stories and are nice and kept up. The homes are mainly made of brick and have nice sized yards. There is a common area for people to gather and talk and play. Our neighbors are some of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet! There are several young children that live in the neighborhood, so a new baby would easily have many new friends! Our neighborhood has an HOA which is always promoting activities with the favorite being the annual Fall Festival where the kids get to dress up. All the adults make treats to share, and everyone meets in the common area for a great time! In addition to the common area there are also 2 very nice parks nearby, a library, and excellent schools.

Our Sweet Kitties

We have two very sweet and loving cats. They are only a few months apart in age and are together most of the time. They are extremely laid back and adjusted very well to our first child and will no doubt do the same with a second!

Our Relationship with Emily's Birth Mom

As surprising as it may sound, Emily’s birth mother has become a close friend to us. We started bonding the last few months of her pregnancy after she picked us. Those bonds continued to grow after Emily’s birth through texts, updates and milestones reached. We are so incredibly thankful that God brought her and Emily into our lives!

Why We are Choosing to Adopt

We are choosing to adopt because we absolutely LOVE being parents! There is truly no greater blessing on this earth! The joy you get watching a baby learn and grow and the love you have for them is beyond words! We are not able to have children of our own, but having a family was always such a big part of our hearts that without question we knew we wanted to adopt. Adopting our daughter Emily has brought immeasurable joy and light to our family! This joy has been more than we ever dreamed possible! It was not long after her adoption that we realized that we have so much more love to give and that we really wanted to expand our family! Every child is so unique and special! We will be beyond excited and blessed to have the privilege of being parents to another precious baby!

Our Lifestyle

Our Lifestyle is pretty simple and laid back. Spending time together is our all-time favorite thing! We love going to the park or playing games together! Our daughter loves to race and show us how fast she is! All three of us enjoy the outdoors so there are a lot of bike rides and walks that go on as well! We attend church on Sundays, and our daughter Emily has swim lessons during the summer months. Most of the time we just hang out and have fun doing things at home like crafts, cooking or making up our own games! We always make sure we are not too distracted by other things to make time for each other!

Our Vacations

Our last mini vacation was a trip to SeaWorld this past summer. It was our daughter’s first time to go there and it was such a joy watching how much fun she had the whole time! It turned out to be a great family memory that we will have forever!

About Us

The way we met was almost like something out of a movie. We both attended the same college and lived in the same dorm. We met through a mutual friend one day in the college cafeteria and ate together whenever we could after that. We had an instant connection that continues to grow to this day. We enjoy each other’s company, support each other and are genuinely best friends. We enjoy doing things together outdoors like walking at the local park, as well as spending a quiet evening at home with our daughter. We also have two cats that we enjoy loving on!

Will you be a Stay-at-Home Parent?

Yes! I, Kirah, will be a stay-at-home mom. During the normal day-to-day routine, I plan to do lots of reading, singing and activities that develop motor skills and help cognition and imagination. Some of these activities will be story time at the library, play dates at a park and various crafts.

What do You do on a 3-Day Weekend

When we have a 3-day weekend we enjoy spending time with our daughter! We try to do something special that is fun and will create memories such as visiting the zoo or going to a book/craft fair.

Family Traditions

I get excited when I think about our family traditions! Especially ones around the holidays! Christmas is the first thing that comes to mind. We always make a point to see Christmas lights, decorate our home with Christmas décor, drink lots of hot chocolate, make cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning…and of course, get a picture with Santa! When Emily joined our family, Grandma decided to begin a tradition of hand making blankets/quits and a stocking for everyone! Around Halloween we go to fall festivals, decorate pumpkins and dress up our daughter in a costume on Halloween! Some other traditions that we have are taking family pictures in a field of bluebonnets in April and in a pumpkin patch in October. I also love making a photo calendar every year to capture all the memories that were made!

Our Promise to You

Our promise to you encompasses many things. First is that your baby will be immensely loved …and be loved unconditionally forever. There will be absolutely nothing that we will not do for your child. We will nurture and support whatever interest or talents they may have. They will be our world! We will make sure that they know without a doubt how much their birth parents love them and how strong and courageous they are. We will make sure they know who you are and not hide anything from them. We are more than willing to provide updates and photos on a regular basis if desired. We are committed to giving your baby the best life possible!
