|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
Kyle is an avid fisherman; he has fished in at least 10 states across rivers, lakes, and oceans. He loves to be outdoors and amongst the wild, and fishing is something he has enjoyed since he was a child. His biggest fish ever was a 41" Muskie, caught in Ohio! His most memorable experience was seeing river otters while fishing in Wyoming. Kyle has also played guitar for more than 20 years and he enjoys playing all types of music. He has been playing in a band for the last 10 years, and he can't wait to play music with our child.
Sarah Jane loves to read, and she is never happier than when she is curled up on the couch with a good book. She also loves to cook and try making new recipes for her family. Sarah Jane has traveled the world extensively because of her job, and she loves seeing new places and cultures. She has loved collecting artifacts from her travels and she feels extremely blessed to have had such unique experiences. She also loves doing things like visiting estate sales/antique stores and going to food and music festivals.
We are non-denominational Christians - we are both very spiritual and believe in a higher power who created the earth. We follow the principals of Christianity and we look to the church for guidance. We believe that faith is a personal journey and we want to give our child every experience possible to develop their own beliefs.
|Our Family |
We are blessed that our entire family lives within 1 hour's drive from our house (parents, siblings, nephews). Our families are both looking forward to spoiling another member with love, affection, and silliness. Sarah Jane's sister and her family live only 5 minutes away from us, and we are extremely close. We eat meals together often throughout the week, and we believe cousins can be as close as siblings!
We have both love to travel but Columbus is our home because it is where our entire family is and we love it! Nothing can replace the special time spent with grandparents, or being able to lean on one another for support during hard times.
Both of our families are extremely supportive of our desire to adopt, and they cannot wait to have another person to love and cherish in their lives!
|About Our Home|
We absolutely love our house, and we think we have gotten the best of both worlds. We live right in the middle of the city, with close access to every amenity one could need. We are also nestled near the river and the woods, and we have wildlife in our yard every day! Our neighborhood is quiet and private, and our best friends and their daughter live directly next door to us, so there is always someone to play with. Our house was built in the 1960's, and it has cool details like hardwood floors and a big fireplace. We have a big backyard for living in the city limits - full of big trees and room for playing sports/games. We think that our home is big, comfortable, and especially full of love.
|We live in the state of...|
Ohio. The Midwest is a beautiful place full of trees, farmland, and also big cities! We live in the capital city of Columbus where there are a multitude of options for education and entertainment. We live very close to the local University, which is the largest school in the country and where we both attended college. Columbus has a wonderful zoo, beautiful parks, and lots of opportunities to see sports or other live activities. We are also a very quick plane ride away from even larger cities such as Chicago or New York City, or just a 1 day's drive from the Atlantic ocean.

|Future Contact with Birth Family|
We are very open to future contact with you. Our relationship with you is extremely important to us!
We would love to share photos and letters, and even in-person meetings if you are comfortable. We would also like to have a relationship with your extended family if possible so that your child has the chance to know their heritage. We are very flexible with communication and whatever would make the most sense for all parties involved.
Thank you for taking the time to review our profile! We have wanted to adopt for many years, and it would bless our hearts to open our home to your child. We will provide your child with a safe and secure environment, full of love, and open to many experiences. Your child would grow up in a home where they were surrounded by extended family (grandparents, aunts/uncles, cousins) and close friends, and they would be loved from every angle. We would also love to build a relationship with you as you are comfortable, and we are extremely open to future contact and visits.
