TRANSCRIPT

  • W e would like to start off by saying thank you for allowing us to introduce ourselves to you. Our names are Steven and Kelly

    and we have a 2-year-old daughter

    named Teagan. We are so excited

    to be starting the adoption process

    and adding another little one to our

    family. We are GRATEFUL that you love your child so deeply that you are considering an adoption plan for him/her. Being parents already, we know that there may

    never be words sufficient enough

    to thank you for this selfless act of

    love you are considering for your

    child. We can’t wait to meet you and get to know more about the amazing person you are.

    B Y S T E V E N meet

    meetW e have been married for almost 7 years and have been together for 10 years. We met in college as teammates on the BGSU cheerleading

    team. We quickly grew fond of each other’s work ethic and personalities (and it may have helped that Steven literally saved my life a few times).

    We got married shortly after graduating college and both found careers that fit our personalities and skills. We both knew that we wanted kids but weren’t sure what path we’d take to get them. We were both drawn to adoption but decided to try to have a biological child first. We have a beautiful daughter named Teagan who is so excited about being a big sister!

    Kelly is my rock and inspiration. She has always known the type of person she wants to be and she has a determination to always do what’s right no matter how hard it may be. She values people over things and will put anyone’s needs in front of her own. Kelly makes the people around her happier and a better person. Her smile is infectious and it is impossible to be around her without laughing. These things make her the best life partner I could ask for. Kelly makes me want to be a better person, husband, and father.

    Steven is one of the most driven, hardworking, fun-loving, and gentle people I have met in my life. When something needs done he will work from the time he wakes up till the time his eyes shut to get it done and done the right way. Steven also knows when it is time to take a break from “to-do” lists to spend time with family. But my favorite characteristic about Steve is that he would help anyone in need. I hope that our future son or daughter grows up to have the same values and work ethic as Steven.

    Our biological daughter, Teagan, is 2 years old and is in love with babies. We have started telling her about how we will be adding a baby to the family! She practices helping with a baby by changing her dolls diaper and feeding them bottles. Teagan has been part of every step of preparing her baby brothers/sisters room. She has her own (little tikes) tool set which she has used to help Steve create the barn wood wall in the Nursery and she has helped Mommy shop for decorations!

    We have always both been very active people and a few years into our marriage we found the sport of Crossfit. CrossFit is a combination of lifting weights, cardio, gymnastics, and high intensity workouts. CrossFit helps us to push ourselves every day to be the best version of ourselves.

    Another great part about the CrossFit gym that we go to is that the owner and many of the other athletes share the same faith as us and attend the same church as us. Our faith is a big component of who we are as individuals, a couple, and a family.

    WE LOVE BEING EACH OTHER’S WORKOUT PARTNER!

  • We have two acres of fenced in land surrounded by farms, fields and even a creek! We have spent a lot of time making our house “our own” by re-doing cabinets, countertops, carpet, and other personal touches. The school that Kelly works at is exceptional and is known for its academic excellence as well as raising kids to be kind. We are very fortunate to be able to

    send our kids to the same school that Kelly works at because we know how hard working and caring the teachers are.

    We are extremely lucky to have the most amazing friends and family that would do anything for our family. Our parents LOVE spending time with their grandkids and are thrilled we are adopting another grandchild for them to love! Steve’s sister is only an hour away and Kelly’s sisters are just down the road and are involved in our everyday life. We are a very close-knit family and have always wanted our kids to grow up best friends with their cousins.

    The friends we have made at CrossFit have truly become like a family to us. We have helped each other move, attended their weddings, dedications and baptisms, thrown baby showers, spent holidays together, and vacationed together. I know that they would do anything for our family as we would for theirs.
