Hello, We are grateful that you would consider our family as a possible placement for your baby and want to share with you who we are and how your child will be raised in our home, if given the opportunity. We have two biological daughters - Avonlea (4) and Felicity (almost 2). Our family lives in a suburb outside Washington, DC, and we love exploring all the city has to offer with museums, parades, and festivals. Plus, there is nothing quite like the Fourth of July in the nation's capital! One of our favorite activities is to go to the National Zoo, get soft-serve ice cream and watch the tigers. We were both raised in Southern California but met while serving at our church in DC and have been happily married for six years. We still attend church every week and our family is involved in a close-knit Bible study group filled with families who have young children too.Your child will have their own room in our house that is already decorated in a safari animal theme. When at home, we would love to have them join us in our favorite activities of jumping on the trampoline in the backyard; riding our bikes and scooters to go see the turtles in a nearby pond; and of course, eating ice cream on our back porch! (are you sensing a trend here with our love of ice cream?!) Avonlea & Felicity are eager for another sibling to join the fun! We understand adoption well since Abby has three adopted brothers, an adopted sister, and seven adopted cousins, all from various races and cultures. Your child will be very loved by an extended family who will welcome them warmly, like we have done with so many adopted children before. We very much want another child, and while we could have another biological child since we have no infertility issues, we long to grow our family through adoption. We strongly believe God has called us in this direction. Adoption was such a joy-filled part of Abby's diverse family that we also wanted to make it part of our own family's story. If you so choose in the years to come, we will happily share photos and stories of what your child is doing and how they are growing and developing. Also, we would enjoy regular visits with you as your child grows. We would love to meet you and answer any questions you may have about our family. We are praying for you as you make this important decision!
Kenny & Abby
