A Letter from Kevin & Cynthia
Hello! Thank you so much for learning more about us. We are a fun-loving Christian family who enjoys fishing, going to the beach, traveling for vacation, and spending time with family. As a blended family, we’ve dreamed of adding another child to our lives. We are excited to expand our family through adoption and are open to letters, pictures and visits with you, if you’d like that. It’s an honor to be considered as possible parents for your child!
We met 12 years ago and had our first date on the beach. Now We have been married for 10 happy years! Shortly after we got married, Kevin got custody of his two daughters, who are now 13 and 16. We tried to grow our family for a few years and have been through two failed rounds of IVF after discovering issues with infertility. We were foster parents for a few years and during that time of helping children, our desire to adopt grew even stronger. It’s exciting to be on this path to adoption!
Together, we enjoy traveling to see family and day trips to the beach, watching shows together in the evening, going on fishing trips, hiking at the state parks, and playing board games. All things we are excited to share with your child!
Kevin is a very loving father to his daughters. He loves to hunt and fish and spends a lot of time enjoying the outdoors. He enjoys sports and played softball for many years, and likes to play cornhole with his friends. He is also an excellent cook and enjoys smoking and grilling meat for family meals and get-togethers. Kevin is helpful and generous with his time, taking part in chores around the house, engaging with our girls as well as volunteering at church. He is so excited to share his love of the outdoors with our next child.
Cynthia is an awesome stepmother to my children. She came into their lives when they were young and stepped up to raise them like her own. Cynthia is hard working; she works her everyday job then comes home to teach the girls their studies. My wife is a great cook and loves to bake homemade cookies and cakes from scratch. She enjoys sewing and cross stitching, and has made several blankets for babies in our family or friends. She also loves photography! Cynthia loves to be outdoors, whether it’s fishing, working in the garden and flowerbeds, and going to the beach. She has a deep faith that she’s passionate about passing down to our children.
Our daughters are excited to welcome a new sibling and look forward to teaching their baby brother or sister new things. Kaylee (16), is a good big sister and enjoys reading books and anything to do with cooking. Alexis (13), is very independent and loves dance, reading, learning new things and enjoying outdoor activities.
We have a wonderful extended family that the kids love to get together and play with. Although they do not all live close by we all look forward to the visiting together and hanging out. We like traveling to see Cynthia’s family in the mountains; her brother lives in Michigan and sister in Kentucky. Kevin’s parents live a short drive away. When our family gets together in the mountains we enjoy hiking, and when we’re in Michigan we like going to the lakes. Our families are all supportive about our plans to adopt!
Our home is a two-story old farmhouse that has been renovated. We love all the space here, with 4 bedrooms, one of which is an office that Cynthia uses to work from home two days a week. Our house also has a large dining room and spacious kitchen that is great for all the cooking we love doing. We enjoy our fenced-in yard where we grow a garden and have some chickens. We live in a rural area surrounded by a lot of farmland, so we have beautiful scenery and lots of privacy.
We promise to love and care for your child unconditionally. As parents, we promise to help guide him or her and make sure they have every opportunity to follow their dreams and guidance to get them there. We will be sure to love, honor and be there for you as well, if you’re comfortable. We’d love to get to know you and share updates throughout your child’s life.

We enjoy taking care of our cats, turtles and chickens!
We are strong believers in Christ and make sure we grow in our faith as a family. We believe that prayer is a very powerful thing that has gotten us through some difficult times. We study the bible not only in Church, but also at home to help us grow every day.

Kevin loves country music and pop. Cynthia likes to listen to Christian music as well as pop songs. Kevin used to play the trumpet when he was in school, and Cynthia played the saxophone.
|Adoption in Our Family|
Adoption is a part of Cynthia's family as her father was adopted as an infant himself, and her aunt has placed a child for adoption. We've learned about the different aspects of adoption from a few different people in her family who are touched by adoption personally.
