How We Met: We met through Kyle’s cousin in the Spring of 2007. We were 19 and just friends, only hanging out in groups. We knew there was something different about each other but were both too shy to make a move. Fast forward nearly 10 years when we found each other on social media and never stopped talking. From there, we went from “just friends” to dating long-distance within a matter of months. After 6-months, we moved to live closer to each other in the Spring of 2017, and the real fun began.
Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other: Kyle is a gentle giant. His height at first can be daunting but you quickly realize that he is such a kind soul. He is easy-going and laid back, quite the balance to my personality. He’s gifted at making people feel seen and heard as he desires to make others happy in all facets of life. He is an incredibly talented Chef and leader. Erin is incredibly faithful. She is organized and creative. She loves to decorate, and it shows all throughout our home. She is a wonderful companion and I love being by her side. She is passionate about life and serving and loving others.
Our Hobbies and Interests: We love holidays and celebrations, so we do them up big! We love hiking and cooking and traveling. Our favorite places to go is our favorite lake in Missouri and the beach in Florida. We are big water people! We also love playing games. Board games, card games, or doing a puzzle – we don’t discriminate! We enjoy grilling out and hanging with our family whenever we can. They are a big part of our daily lives, and we try to see them as much as we can.
Why We Want to Adopt: We were diagnosed with infertility after about six months of trying to conceive naturally. We have been through several rounds of IVF and have experienced quite a bit of loss throughout the process. We do not consider adoption to be the “second best thing” as we have seen how God planned this path for us all along. We are confident that adoption is the next step to growing our family.
