A Letter from Keith & Melissa

First, we want to thank you for taking the time to read our profile and learn more about us. We were married in 2016 in a small town in Kansas. Soon after marriage, we started planning for our family. After years of infertility, although taxing, our faith was not shaken. We knew that we wanted to grow our family through adoption.

We are a fun-loving family, and we are looking forward to beginning our journey as first-time parents. We have two loving doggies, Pete and Leo. They are active, silly, and love kids. We are excited to grow our family through the beauty of adoption! We look forward to sharing letters, photos, and occasional visits with you.

About Us

We met each other through mutual friends and family many years ago.  Keith was the best man at Melissa’s sister’s wedding and Melissa was the maid-of-honor. At the time, neither of us knew that we would be the next to get married and to each other. After 3 years of dating, we got married on a beautiful but small lake in Kansas. We have now been married for 5 years and have loved every minute of it.  We have been praying for our family to grow but are not able to conceive naturally.  We both feel that now is the perfect time to begin our adoption journey and to start our family as first-time parents.

We love quiet nights at home watching movies, traveling, trying new things, walking our dogs in nature, and putting puzzles together. We are so excited to make new memories with our child.

Our Home in Kansas

We live on 10 beautiful acres somewhat near Kanas City. Our cozy 3-bedroom home is nestled nicely in the country but still very close to city access. The area is safe, quiet and has a great school district. Our land is perfect for exploring nature, barbecuing, yard games, and pool time. We have a jungle-themed bedroom setup and ready for our future child. Our home is located exactly 25 minutes away from both Keith and Melissa’s families, and we all love getting together as often as possible.

Our home is filled with lots of love and even more laughter!

My Wife, Melissa

Melissa is a loving and caring person, who only has others’ best interests at heart.   She loves spending time with our family, especially puzzle nights with our nieces and nephew as well as spending time with her friends and their children. Melissa is always eager to try new things and always makes the most out of each experience. She loves to travel, photography and enjoys walking our dogs.

She has always done a fantastic job at making our house a home. I am looking forward to this journey with my wife knowing that she will be the best mother a child could ask for. Melissa is most excited to share her love for music and travel with our child.

My Husband, Keith

Keith is incredibly thoughtful and willing to help anyone out at any time.   He is very humble, hilarious, and intelligent. He excels at his career as a chief financial officer at a community bank through hard work and dedication.  He loves to read books about history, golfing with his friends, being outdoors, and spending time with family.

I love watching Keith interact with our nephew and nieces.  He shows so much patience, encouragement, and kindness.  I know he will be the best dad!   Keith has so much wisdom and love to offer, and know he is most excited to share his love for sports with our child.

Our Family

Melissa and her sister are very close and we love spending as much time as possible with her and her family. Whether it’s dinner or a weekend getaway, we have the best time. Our niece and nephew are both excited to meet their new cousin. Melissa’s parents both live close and are excited to spend time with a new grandchild.

Keith’s family lives in his hometown in southeast Kansas. His family loves to gather many times throughout the year for dinner and game night. Keith’s mom and stepdad are cattle ranchers and enjoy taking their grandchildren on trips to check the cows and we know they would love to share those moments with our child.

Our Promise

We promise to love and care for your child, putting their needs above our own. We are excited to see the world through their eyes. We will support their hopes and dreams no matter what, so they live their life to the fullest and achieve their dreams. We will encourage them to be the very best version of themselves and lead a life through faith.

We would love to maintain contact with you through letters, pictures, and annual visits if you desire.
