Hello, our names are Kevin and Chelsie.
Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know us better! We cannot imagine the feelings and emotions you are experiencing right now. We want you to know that we feel you are a very strong person to choose adoption for you baby. With this profile, it is our hope to provide you a small glimpse of what life with our family would be like for your baby.
Our story began the summer of 2004 where we meet at a mutual friends house. That evening Kevin noticed a cute petite girl and Chelsie noticed a very tall handsome guy. We started talking that evening and haven’t stopped since. We dated while Chelsie went to college and Kevin worked on the road. April 2010, Kevin got down on one knee and asked Chelsie to spend the rest of her life with him. Fourteen months later, we had an outdoor wedding surrounded by our closest family and friends.
It wasn’t long after getting married before we decided to start a family. We always knew we wanted at least two kids and couldn’t wait to share a life with little ones. We were patient for a while, but after a year of trying, we knew we needed to seek medical help. We doctored for four years including hormones and in-vitro fertilization (IVF). Our fertility doctoring brought us together as a couple in a very emotional and spiritual way. After many discussions and lots of prayer we are very excited and would be very blessed to add to our family through adoption.
MY HUSBAND KEVIN (Written by Chelsie)
Kevin is 32 years old. He was raised in a small town in Kansas. During his childhood he spent many days helping his grandparents on the farm. Kevin continues to have a passion for the outdoors. He loves to hunt, do yard work and help our friends harvest. He is also VERY handy around the house; you name it, electrical, plumbing, carpentry, landscaping, he can do it. Kevin currently works as an electrician in the engineering department for our local hospital and also maintains his own electrical business.
Kevin is an amazing man. He is so hard working and very talented. He is goofy and corky but always responsible. He is the outgoing, happy-go-lucky one in the relationship. He is always doing his best to pull me out of my comfort zone and try new things. There is not a day that goes by that he isn’t making me laugh. When he gets home from work, it is not uncommon for him to come find me pick me up and swing me around and then give me a sloppy obnoxious kiss. Kevin will be an amazing dad and I can’t wait to see him interact with our children.
MY WIFE CHELSIE (Written by Kevin)
Chelsie is 29 years old. She was raised in the same small town in Kansas. Chelsie grew up with a very large extended family with most of them living near by. Two very supportive parents raised her and her younger brother. Chelsie and her brother had a very close relationship growing up; playing in the yard, watching movies, swimming and playing with friends. Together, Chelsie’s family enjoyed golfing, swimming, going to the lake, football games and BBQs with friends and family.
Chelsie graduated from Kansas State University with a Master’s in Speech-Language Pathology. She has worked at our local elementary school since graduating. She is truly gifted when it comes to working with kiddos. Her passion and talents never cease to amaze me whether it be at work or at home. Chelsie is a very patient and carrying person who, in turn, makes me a better person. She is the love of my life and I cannot think of a more loving and caring individual.
WHAT WE ENJOY TOGETHER
Together we enjoy Kansas State Football games; tailgating with friends and family. We often spend our time working in the yard, helping our friends harvest, boating at the lake and golfing. We also enjoy going on weekend getaways, vacations, and course, spending time with family. We both have large families who all live in our same hometown or close by. We often get together to celebrate birthdays, holidays or other special occasions.
We love our home! We have a beautiful country home located 2.5 miles from our hometown. We have 3 acres to run around and play with a pond near by perfect for a day of fishing or a paddle boat. We have a large tree perfect for a swing and shaded area great for a sandbox! We are very excited to fill our home with the sound of children running around laughing and playing.
We have a very spoiled puppy. She is a maltipoo and is 6 years old. Her name is Bella Anne and she goes wherever we go. She loves to be snuggled, play fetch and run around in the yard. She has been around our friend’s children and seems to be very good with kids. She shares her toys and they chase each other around in circles. Our parents love Bella. They call her their grand puppy and often ask to puppy sit!
Again, thank you for giving us the opportunity to introduce our family to you. We hope that you are able to find the support and love as you make this important decision, one that we know will not be easy. If your heart leads you in our direction, we want you to know that we will surround your child with love, laughter and happiness. Throughout this journey together, our thoughts and prayers are with you; prayers for strength, peace, and a safe and healthy pregnancy.
We look forward to getting to know you and making you a part of our lives!
Kevin & Chelsie
