A Letter from Kirk & Denise
We first would like to say thank you for considering us to be your baby’s adoptive parents. We truly are honored and privileged to be given the opportunity to love your baby. This is not something that we take lightly. We recognize the commitment it takes and are humbled by the opportunity.
We truly believe God’s plan for us to adopt a baby is part of our journey as a couple. We accept that blessing with open hearts. We will do everything in our power to protect, love, provide for and encourage your baby as they grow into a happy, healthy, confident, kind, respectful and successful adult. We are open to letters, photos, and visits from you as well.
We worked together 20 years ago in the security field. Kirk said one day that Denise would fall in love with him and while Denise didn’t believe him then, fast forward to present day, he was right. We have been married almost 10 years.
We love to travel and have been to Spain, Turks and Caicos, Italy, Dubai and Canada. We have also been to Alaska, where we spent time viewing the Glaciers and exploring a Wildlife Park for endangered animals. We really enjoy learning about other cultures in our travels and would love to share those experiences with your baby. On Sunday’s we try new recipes from our collection of great cookbooks, and Kirk is great with creating awesome smoothies. We are looking forward to sharing our love for cooking as well.
Kirk is a fantastic husband, a great friend and I know he will be an awesome dad. He has been in the security field for years and has a background in music. He is one to put family first and is always willing to be a mentor to his nephews and to those that work with him. He is intelligent, resilient, driven, and has a thirst for knowledge which he humbly shares with others.
Kirk is thoughtful, giving and full of surprises when you least expect it. He feeds stray cats, takes care of injured pets, and is always there to support those in need. Those are the qualities and attributes that make him special. Kirk is a fan of history and is looking forward to sharing with and teaching the baby about our culture and rich history. He has so many books he is looking forward to reading to them.
Denise is a very energetic, passionate and loyal person with a contagious smile. She loves working out, competing in figure fitness competitions and most of all, traveling. She has a passion for history and learning about new and different cultures, spending time with children and animals and loves to plan and take part in surprises!
She is a very caring and devoted wife and is always there to encourage and motivate others to achieve their dreams. Denise is excited to share her love of sports, travel, and culture with the baby and to show them all the joys of exploring the outdoors. She will be one of those parents sitting in the bleachers cheering their child on.
Our parents and friends are so very excited to babysit and host a huge baby shower. They are thrilled for us to become first-time parents. Denise’s father and Kirk both love a good barbecue and Denise has a lot of traditional recipes from South America that she would love to pass on, including a family favorite homemade bread and fudge recipes. We have family in New York, who visit once a year. Kirk’s family lives in Georgia and they have a great bond. His mother and brother are looking forward to being a grandmother and uncle. When we get together its always a great time to cook and eat our favorite foods and reminisce about the past.
We have a four-bedroom house that we purchased almost two years ago in preparation for growing our family. Our new house has a patio, a deck, a porch and a fenced-in backyard with plenty of space for running around and games.
We have two dogs, Caesar and Sampson who are well trained, enjoy obstacle courses and children. There are many wonderful parks nearby with hiking trails. Our neighborhood is quiet, relaxing and family-oriented. On any given day there are families strolling the neighborhood with their babies or dog and kids playing outside. There are many great schools within driving distance and the library is very close by as well.
We promise to provide your child with a nurturing home filled with unlimited love and laughter. We will keep your child at the center of our decision making and will be sure to place the interests of your baby above our own. We are committed to providing your baby with a great education and an abundance of opportunities.
We will always encourage, inspire and motivate your baby and be an advocate. We promise to share God’s love with your baby and make sure they always know they are accepted and loved by us, you and by God. We look forward to sharing pictures, letters, and visits with you in the future.
