A Letter from Jeremy & Kim
We have been together since 2014, when we went on our first date/hike together with our dogs. We love the outdoors and adventure and can be found climbing, skiing, hiking, and backpacking on our days off. We find so much joy in the great outdoors and find faith and purpose in the mountains. We have always dreamed of being a family and due to infertility, we are unable to have children. We are grateful to be able to start our family through adoption and are excited to share our love of the mountains with your child.
Kim is the kindest and most thoughtful person I have ever met! She cares greatly about making sure our home is natural, wholesome, warm and welcoming. Kim loves the great outdoors and always finds so much happiness in it. She also loves to spend time with our families while cooking and eating good food. She is so excited to be a mother and to share her love of hiking through the mountains with our child. Kim will teach them all about wildflowers, alpine lakes, and teach our child the names of all the mountains as we go on walks in the woods. Kim’s best qualities that she will teach your child are patience and a healthy lifestyle. Kim will be a strong and nurturing figure as your child grows.
Jeremy’s passion for life and adventure is what drew me to him. He is the kindest, most positive, and driven person I know. His advocacy and giving nature to those in his life knows no bounds. He cares greatly about keeping our home safe, functional, and comfortable. Jeremy enjoys working with his hands. His favorite home update was to our kitchen where he made it more suitable for a family. He loves the winter season and looks forward to showing our child how to ski so we all can enjoy snow days together. Jeremy is excited to become a father so that he can teach mountain safety and respect for the outdoors.
We both have big families, 3 brothers and sisters each! We have a strong bond with our extended families who we try to see as often as possible. Both our mothers live close by and are so excited for our adoption! They are thrilled to help care for a new grandchild and shower them in love. Our biggest tradition on both sides of the family is coming together for Thanksgiving every year. We share in good food, catching up with everyone, and playing games. All of our family is excited to include our child in the holidays!
We live in a cozy home in a fun mountain community with our 2 dogs, Chips and Lola. Chips is an 11-year-old pointer mix who is gentle and friendly with everyone. Lola is a 6-year-old cattle dog that loves to play with all of our friend’s children. We bought our home 4 years ago, and Jeremy has made many updates including changing our second bedroom into a nursery. We have a fenced-in backyard, which is ready for a playset! We use our big sunny front deck for dinners and family time in the summers. Our community is tight-knit and we are within distance from the post office, market, and our favorite restaurant. We can also hike or ski out the back door, or go swim in a nearby lake. The bilingual elementary school that your child will attend is on the next block over with a baseball and football field, and a great playground!
We feel that nature and the mountains have a special meaning and purpose in our lives, and want to share that love and passion with your child. We promise to nurture and provide for them in all that they do. We will provide guidance and an opportunity for a strong educational foundation. We will encourage continuing education and a passion for pursuing their dreams in life. We will provide a healthy family structure while encouraging individuality. We promise to honor and respect you and keep in touch with letters, pictures, and meetups at your comfort level. We promise to provide your child with a loving life full of adventure!
