I want to begin by thanking you. We don’t know your circumstances, but decisions like this are never easy. By working with Holy Family Services, you’re giving families like ours a chance to grow and share our love. You are bringing a new life into this world, and the world will be a better place because of what you did. So, again: thank you.
If you haven’t already, you’ll see there are a lot of pictures of us. Pictures of our family, pictures of our pets, of vacations we took and celebrations we had. Please take a look at them, as we hope they’ll give you a sense of who we are, what we do and the things in life we care about.
My name is Kevin, my wife’s name is Kelly. We’ve been together since 2007. We married in 2011. We were both born and raised in and around Los Angeles. As children, we even went to the same 4th of July party (though, we didn’t know each other yet). Kelly is a teacher and nanny, I am a producer for a radio show. Together, we love to hike in nature, we go to baseball and basketball games, we love to cook meals for our friends, too.
We both come from small families and have always wanted to grow ours. We started trying to have a child about 7 years ago. It was then, during a routine checkup, we discovered an ovarian tumor in Kelly. After a bunch of doctor’s visits and one big surgery, Kelly beat it. It was a scary time, but it brought us closer together.
And while we’re eternally grateful to have Kelly’s health back, the tumor made having biological children of our own very difficult, if not impossible. We mourned that loss for a while – this wasn’t how we thought things would go, after all.
Eventually, after some healing, we looked to grow our family in other ways. We were foster parents to a baby boy in 2019, until he was reunited with his family. It was a beautiful, heartbreaking journey. One we wouldn’t trade for the world. That experience led us here, to Holy Family Services. Where, God willing, we’ll get to share our lives and our love with a new, permanent member of our family.
I think that at the end of the day, we want the same things you want for your child: safety, security, an education, and above all things: love. Kelly and I are thrilled to begin a new chapter in our lives as parents. We are open to regular visits, to sharing pictures and updates about milestones, if you’re comfortable with that. Most importantly, though: your child will always know how much you love them. No matter what.
Thank you for your time and attention.
Kelly & Kevin
