Richard and Kelley

Hello sweet friend,

We are delighted that you have taken interest in us to raise your child as our own. We will never completely understand the choice that you must be facing. However, we have been praying for you every day since we decided to adopt. Our prayer is that God continues to give you strength and peace to make the best decision for you and your sweet child.

We are high school sweethearts who dated for six years before marrying in 2010. For the last four years, we have been trying to grow our family. Our journey has included numerous treatments, but despite the best of modern medicine, we still have no answer.

Therefore, we decided to adopt a child because we so want to be parents. We have felt God calling us to give a child a loving home. We have had such a peace since making this decision, and we can’t wait to hold your baby, love them and teach them all of our values.

We live in a quiet neighborhood in middle Georgia and much of our extended family lives nearby. We love to have friends and family over to our home to share life together. We love being in nature so our hobbies include camping, kayaking, fishing, and boating. Going to the beach with our entire family is a tradition we hold fast to even as all our families grow. During the fall, we love to go to college football games or have friends and family over to watch the game together. Christmas is also a very special time for us as we gather together. Most of my favorite memories as a child of the joy of Christmas time.

About Richard by Kelly

My husband, Richard is going to be an amazing father. He is already so loving and kind with our twelve nieces and nephews. They love to play with him and it always makes me smile to see how they react to his unconditional love. I often daydream about him with our child teaching them to play ball, golf, or teaching them everything he knows about cars just as his dad taught him. Richard loves to play golf, fishing, camping, and to go to the race track with his father. Richard works in the agricultural irrigation business and will one day run his own company. He is very handy around the house and can fix pretty much anything, which is helpful because I am not. Can you relate?

About Kelly from Richard

Kelley is going to be an amazing mom. Kelley has a kind and tender heart. She loves children and has always longed to be a mom. All of the children in the family love her and are always excited when they see her face. Kelley’s values mean a lot to her; her dad was a minister and she would love to share that passion with her children. Kelley loves to be around her friends hanging by the pool, shopping, or just watching a movie. Kelley works in the medical field. Her desire to give back to the community speaks of her character as a person.

We both truly want the best for you and your child. We hope this letter gives you a little insight on who we are. We hope that it spoke to you to let you know what kind of life your child would have if they were a part of our family. We will always keep you and your child in our prayers. Thank you for taking interest in our family.
