Dear Expectant Mother,
We are Kevin and Kelley from Alabama. Thank you for taking
the time to read our letter and look at our profile. We are excited to begin
this journey with you.
We have been searching for a long time for an answer to our
prayers, and we hope that our prayers will soon be answered. We are unable to
have children naturally, but we realized that God has bigger plans for us to
grow our family. Having a child in our lives will help to enrich the love that
we already share. We can’t wait to share our life and the traditions that we grew
up with and continue to enjoy to this day. We could never begin to truly know
what it is that you are going through with this difficult decision, but we
would like you to know what your child can expect with us.
We met in a somewhat unconventional manner, or maybe it’s more
conventional these days! We met on a dating website. We both had never been married
and have no children, so we like to say we were both well trained and
independent souls by then!
Kevin is a Database Manager at our local university where he
also graduated from. He loves to be involved in the tech world and to see what
is going on daily. Kelley is office manager of a local disaster recovery
company and has worked there for 15 years.
Our family and friends can’t wait for your baby to join our
family. Kelley’s family consists of her mother, father, stepfather and sister
and her sister’s dog Bella, who we consider as our own sometimes! They are all
excited for your child to join our family and pray daily for this to happen for
us. Kevin fits very well into Kelley’s family; her mother and father both love
and adore him as their own. Kevin’s family consists of his mother, father,
brother, sister-in-law, and his sister and her three children. All of our
families have blended so well together and we all spend holidays with each
Our friends are very supportive. Their children all can’t
wait to have a new baby to play with, and grow up with. They can’t wait to meet
the new addition and the changes that this will bring to our family.
We currently live on a small cul-de-sac. It is a quiet
neighborhood that has many events and keeps everyone informed at all times. We
are in the process of building larger house to accommodate our hopefully
growing family. The ground was just broken and the building is in progress. It
is going to be a larger home with an open floor plan, and a large bedroom for your
child to grown up in! We can’t wait to share our forever home with your little
one. It is only 5 minutes from our current house in a newer subdivision.
We both grew up along the Gulf Coast where the sights and
sounds of the Gulf of Mexico are only an hour away. We love the beach and the
water and take any chance we can get to escape there, either with our boat or
by car. There is nothing like the sound or sight of the Gulf of Mexico to take
all of your cares away.
Holidays are a tradition we have both always enjoyed. We
love to decorate for each and every holiday. Kevin likes to joke that Kelley
has to have a lot of electricity for all the lights she likes to put up at
Christmas. That is one of the things that he told our contractors for our new
home. Kelley loves lights! On Thanksgiving night, we like to go home, just the
two of us, and put up our tree with the ornaments we have collected over the
years. Kevin has many sentimental ones, such as Frosty and Rudolph that he has
had since he was a child. Kelley has an ornament to commemorate each year that
we have been together. After Christmas, we leave our tree up for our next holiday,
which is Mardi Gras. We are both very involved in our Mardi Gras Organizations
and love to be a part of this tradition every year. Mardi Gras is such a sense
of tradition from where we grew up, and we are both honored to be a small part
of its history and culture.
We also love football and take in at least one University of
Alabama game a year. This is yet another tradition that we were brought up on,
to love Alabama football. Most weekends you will see us at friends’ houses
enjoying the game with our friends and their families grilling and watching the
game. We also love the New Orleans Saints and go to their games every chance we
Our lives are full of wonderful things, and we want to share it
all with your baby. We were both brought up in the Catholic religion and will bring
him or her up this way as well. We will love your child with our whole hearts and
beings! They will never lack for love, and they will have every opportunity to
grow and thrive. They will grow up in a fun and loving atmosphere, we promise
Our life feels complete, but we know in our hearts it is
not. We pray that God blesses us with a child and that you will be confident
knowing that your child will be loved to infinity and beyond.
Kelley & Kevin
