Thank you for reading our profile. We know you are facing a big decision about whether or not to place your precious baby, and we pray that God will grant you wisdom and peace. We don’t pretend to understand the emotions you are feeling as you search your heart for the family that would be the best fit for your child. We’d love to share with you a little bit about ourselves to help with your decision.
Our names are Ken and Kim, and we live in southern California. We both committed our lives to Christ when we were young, and we both have been involved with church all of our lives. We both were focused on our careers until we met about six years ago. We were introduced by a mutual friend and our first date was running a half-marathon together in San Diego. We now have been married for about five years, and we live active and full lives. We love to travel to Hawaii and other parts of the country and take our nieces and nephews to Disneyland and other outings. This is the first marriage for both of us, and we don’t have any children. We live in a quiet residential neighborhood and enjoy hosting parties for neighborhood friends, including their kids. We have a sweet little dog named Tucker, who is very good with children. We are saving a special place in our hearts for the child or children who will join us in our home one day.
Kim about Ken
Ken is 52 and enjoys his work teaching government as a college professor. He spends every day with eager young college students, helping them develop their abilities and make decisions about their futures. He loves our spacious yard and garden and often proudly brings me fruit and flowers from outside. He has a curious mind and enjoys learning and exploring the world with me while taking lots of pictures. He also loves baseball and even has a fantasy baseball team of his own! Most days, he walks our dog, Tucker, in the morning. He also often runs with his running group and he goes skiing about once a year with his buddies. Sometimes he surprises me by playing piano on a holiday or Sunday afternoon. Ken loves to spend time with our nieces and nephews and will be a wonderful dad one day!
Ken about Kim
Kim is 41 and works part-time as a Marriage and Family Therapist with the counseling ministry of a church. She loves counseling people of all ages and backgrounds, including children. She moved here from the northeast and enjoys Southern California’s sunny climate – it allows her to exercise outdoors and work in the garden throughout the year. She has always loved to travel but recently has delighted in decorating and organizing our home. She has made it beautiful, warm, and homey! One of my favorite things is when she bakes a tray of chocolate chip cookies or sweet potato fries! She has a great sense of humor and can do excellent impersonations. She is an amazing aunt to our nieces and nephews and also loves teaching kids at the church where she works. Through these experiences she has learned a lot about parenting and is ready to be a world-class mom!
Giving birth has not been a part of God’s plan for us. We are excited, though, to become parents through the wonder of adoption. Once we have a baby at home, Kim plans to stop working and stay at home with the baby for as long as is needed. The baby’s family of origin always would be honored in our home. We will be grateful for whoever places a baby with us.
You are already a hero in our eyes, because you are seeking to choose life for your child. We have witnessed some selfless acts of love in our lives, and your considering placing your child with an adoptive family is a shining example of that kind of love. We admire that you are considering adoption and we want you to know that we honor and respect you, whether or not you decide to place your baby for adoption, and whether or not we ever meet. We wish the very best for you and will keep you in our prayers.
