Christmas

Favorite season and why?

Fall! The weather is the best, in my opinion, and the promise of the holiday season coming up is just so wonderful.

Kellie

I love being a stay at home mom!

View Larger

We are close with Evan’s parents, sister and brother in law who all live nearby.

Do you have kids? How would they feel about a sibling?

YES we have one son named Linden who is three. He’s had a long time to prepare to be a big brother through adoption so he is beyond ready to meet his brother or sister.

Kellie

Our home is full of fun, music, and learning, not to mention love!

Dogs or cats?

Cats!!!!!

Kellie

If you had to pick a famous person to play you in a movie, who would it be?

Beyoncé. It wouldn’t make any sense because I’m white and she’s beautiful and can dance, but it would be so fun to see her trying to pretend to be me. I love her.

Kellie

We enjoy being outside and exploring together

Best dada ever

The most special thing I own is...

My two sweet cats, Leo and Farrah. Some may say they own me.

Kellie

My favorite place in the World is...

The Oregon Coast. I love the sand and the sun and how it’s often cold and windy but so so beautiful.

Kellie

Favorite season and why?

Summer. I grew up in California and love the sunny weather. In summer, the weather can’t stop you from doing pretty much any activity outdoors.

Evan

If you could choose one type of food to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Chocolate

Kellie

If I could have dinner with anyone -- dead or alive -- I would pick...

My mom. She passed away in September from cancer and I would give anything to see her again.

Kellie

What scares you?

The scariest thing to think about is something happening to my child or my future children.

Kellie

When you argue, what’s it about?

Song lyrics or the pronunciation of town names! We don’t really argue much.

Kellie

What is the best word to describe your family?

Loving Please reach out to us and ask anything- we are open books. We want you to get to know us and see if we are the right family for your baby.

Kellie

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the night sky?

The vastness of space is cool to think about, but when I look at the night sky, I think mostly about loved ones who I have lost and have passed on.

Kellie

Dogs or cats?

Cats!!!

Evan

I hope you are...

Hanging in there. This can’t be an easy time for you.

Kellie

Three years from now, I hope our birth mom is…..

Feeling secure in her relationship with us and her child.

Kellie

If you had to live on an RV or sailboat for the rest of your life, which would it be?

An RV for sure! I would love to see the country but on a boat I would feel kind of stuck, considering I can’t swim!

Kellie

If I could change one thing about the World, it would be...

Hate. So much bad in the world comes from hate.

Kellie

We are the best choice because…

We are only the best choice for you if it feels right. We aren’t the best choice for every expectant mom and that’s ok. Our goal here is to raise a child who is very very loved by a lot of people.

Kellie

My best friend would describe me as......

Quirky

Kellie

Complete the sentence, “I can’t live without……”

Coffee! I love the ritual of it and the smell. Evan makes my coffee every morning so it’s also an act of love.

Kellie

We are the best choice because…

We are completely ready to adopt. We have been through two disrupted adoptions and we are ready to finally become a family of four.

Evan

My neighborhood is a good place to raise a family because…

Our neighbors are all ages, races, and walks of life. Our neighborhood school is a block away.

Kellie

I would never...

Skydive. Ever. No.

Kellie

Complete the sentence, “I can’t live without……”

My bike. Getting out to ride for miles and miles is the best way for me to clear my head and blow off steam. I love riding with our son and hope to ride with our adopted child also.

Evan

In five years, our relationship with you will...

Feel like family.

Kellie

Do you consider yourself religious or spiritual?

Neither really. We both consider ourselves agnostic and are open to our child exploring religion if they want to.

Kellie

My philosophy on parenting is...

Respect. We follow respectful parenting practices. In our view, children do need guidance and boundaries but are whole and capable people and should be treated with respect. Never belittled.

Kellie

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the night sky?

I would love to travel to space. The idea of manned missions excites me and I would love to go someday.

Evan
