Hello! We are grateful for your consideration in being parents to your baby. Our family is ready to grow, and we would be honored to be part of your journey. We are happy to share a glimpse into our fun-loving life! We cannot wait to share all the things we love, like the great outdoors and traveling with you and your baby. Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know us!
We have been married for almost 10 years after meeting at work. Together, we love spending time with our dog Ziggy, playing card/board games, cooking, spending time with family and friends, and watching a good movie. We also enjoy spending time outside fishing, swimming, boating/camping, and on cruises! We are excited to add our child to these adventures! We look forward to family meals, game nights, and cuddling up on the couch together while watching a movie. We prioritize taking one big vacation every year, and we can not wait to share those memories and create new ones with our child so we can see the world through their eyes.
We always knew we wanted a family soon after getting married, and after struggling with infertility, the Lord opened the door to adoption, and we are so incredibly thankful. Growing our family through adoption is so exciting, and we consider it a gift to be walking this journey. We cannot wait to share our love for Jesus, adventures, learning, reading, the outdoors, and so much more with our child!
Kelli is a hard-working Administrative Specialist. She is a loving and outgoing person with a huge heart, always helping others out when in need. She loves to travel whether it’s a cruise, the beach, or just a day-long road trip, she’s ready to go. Kelli enjoys spending her free time fishing, boating, working on arts and crafts, cooking, and spending time with family and friends. She can strike up a conversation with anyone she meets. Kelli loves children, and I know she will make a great mother! She looks forward to watching Disney movies, baking cookies, making forts in the living room, and reading books with our child.
Frankie is a hardworking and dependable person that you can always count on. He is kind-hearted, a fantastic friend/partner, and has a great sense of humor! Frankie is known as the fun uncle, and kids absolutely adore him. He is truly selfless and will drop whatever he is doing to help! Frankie works as a Correctional Sergeant with a local prison. He enjoys motorcycle riding, fishing, swimming, boating, and traveling. You will often find him outdoors in nature or working on projects. Frankie is a family-first guy, which is why he is going to make an outstanding father. He looks forward to teaching our child how to fish, swim, and ride a bicycle.
Our Home in North Carolina
We live in a small community outside of town. Our home is in a family-friendly area surrounded by parks, schools, churches, restaurants, and even a beach. We live in a 4 bedroom 3 bath home that has plenty of room to grow our family. We love that our home is located in the country where it is quiet and peaceful! There is plenty of space to ride four-wheelers, bikes, swim in our secured above-ground pool, play with our chickens, and explore on our 11-acre property.
Quality family time and family values are extremely important to both of us. We are not only close residentially to some of our family, but our relationships are very close! We often spend time with both families going on vacations and or having cookouts. Our families and friends are both so excited to welcome our child into their hearts and close-knit circle. All are supportive of our decision to adopt and will provide all the love and support for our child to thrive in.
Just a few traditions that we share with our families are:
- Celebrating every holiday together
- Sunday dinners after church
- Fishing/Camping trips
Our promise to you and your child
We want to thank you for considering us, and we cannot begin to express how excited we are at becoming an adoptive family. We promise that your child will forever be loved, they will know the value of hard work, education, and faith. We promise to always stay open and committed to your communication wishes, even as our relationship grows and changes through the years, you will forever have a place in your child’s life. There will always be time for updates via phone calls, videos, or visits. These promises are not just words on a page but true commitments from the bottom of our hearts.

More About Our Family
Our dog, Ziggy, is our sweet, kid-friendly, spoiled, treat-loving miniature schnauzer. He loves laying on the back of the couch, lounging in his bed, or sitting on grandma's lap. We also have 6 chickens and a bunch of wild turkeys and deer that roam our yard daily for food.
Our relationship with God is something we are striving to make stronger every day. We both grew up in Christian homes, Kelli in the Baptist Church and Frankie in the Catholic Church. We now attend a Baptist church just a few miles down the road from our home. We promise to raise your child to know and love Jesus, attend church, and know how valued and loved they are by God!
