A Letter from Drew & Kelly
Hello from Texas! We’re extremely excited about this journey and are looking forward to starting our family through adoption. We would love to share every aspect of our lives with your child, making many memories together as a family of three. Our large extended family is so supportive and can’t wait to include another child in our family traditions. We love the Lord, value education, and enjoy being active outdoors. If you are open, we would love to stay in contact with you through letters, photos, and visits!
We met through mutual friends and have now been married for 9 years! After experiencing many pregnancy hardships, we feel God has opened the door for us to adopt our first child.
We love traveling and have enjoyed trips around the US or to tropical destinations. Every evening we enjoy walking our dog together, and we always look forward to attending Texas sporting events. Outdoor activities are some of our favorites, including hiking, canoeing, swimming, or running marathons. At home we like to play games, watch movies, and cook together. Both of our families have big farms where we enjoy riding tractors, golf carts, and four wheelers. Our jobs allow us a lot of flexibility for raising a child, and we’re so excited to share our lives as parents.
Our faith is so important to us as well. We love going to church with our families each week, and look forward to opportunities to volunteer there a few times a year.
We both like:
• Country music
• Date nights at our favorite Mexican restaurants
Kelly is committed to her faith, family, and friends, always going out of her way to encourage others She’s compassionate, loves with her whole heart, and always impresses me with how smart she is.
She has a heart for animals, and enjoys working out, shopping, going to the beach, organizing our home, and caring for our nieces and nephews. Kelly is a dedicated special education teacher, and the care she gives her students is just one reason I know she’ll be a wonderful mother. Becoming a mother will mean so much to Kelly. She is so excited to share her love of music and dance with a child!
Drew is the most patient, kind, and loving husband. He’s always encouraging me to follow my dreams, loves to make people smile with his jokes, and is passionate about his faith. He works hard to provide for our family and is such a strong, positive influence to our loved ones.
Drew enjoys gardening, riding motocross and dirt bikes, fixing up his bikes, and going out on the water to fish, wake board, or surf on his family’s boat. He’s great with our nieces and nephews, and I know he will embrace the role of being a father. I look forward to seeing him hold our child and finding the best “dad jokes” to pass down.
Our 4 bedroom home has so much space for a child to grow and play! There’s a large game room upstairs, plenty of space for our dog, Lily, to run around, and an extra room that we look forward to making into a nursery.
We live on a cul-de-sac where kids are always outside playing. We have great neighbors! Within walking distance from our house are playgrounds, walking trails, and an excellent school. Every year we enjoy the local Livestock Show & Rodeo, a rodeo parade, Rice Harvest Festival, our church’s Halloween Trunk-or-Treat, and even a Christmas parade in our subdivision.
Kelly has a large family who live in our town. Drew’s immediate family lives 40 minutes away, while everyone else lives in Georgia, New England, and farther out in Texas. We love getting together as much as we can!
Traditions: Our family gathers to celebrate birthdays, holidays, and everything in between! We do a weekend beach trip with family every summer. We have an annual Easter bunny cake decorating contest in the spring, and a pumpkin carving competition, and family photos at the pumpkin patch, every autumn. Everyone loves visits to our family’s farms in Texas and Vermont, where we barbecue, ride tractors & 4-wheelers, and enjoy the wide open spaces. For Christmas, we love picking our tree out at a local farm and driving around to look at Christmas lights. And we’re also excited to create new family traditions as a family of three!
If you choose us to adopt your child, we promise to raise him or her in a safe Christian home where love will be unconditional. We will encourage your child to pursue their hopes and dreams, and will provide every opportunity to do so, including a good education. We will teach him or her how to have an open heart and to care for others. We will do our best to model God’s love in everything that we do as parents.
