FC: Kevin & Cindy

1: Welcome to our Family

2: Hello, Thank you for considering us for your precious little one. As you review our profile we hope you can picture your child growing up with us, with lots of unconditional love, laughter, extended family, friends, and support throughout this little one's lifetime. In Christ's Love, Kevin and Cindy

4: By Cindy: Kevin grew up in a small town in Michigan. He lived on a farm that has been in the family for four generations. His grandparents lived across the road and his uncles, aunts and cousins lived nearby. Kev had an ideal childhood surrounded by love, family, and a community. He has such a strong sense of who he is and of love. What first drew me to Kevin was his wonderful smile and his joy of life. Kev proposed to me on bended knee with violins playing in the background. He is a great husband and father and, obviously, LOVES kids. He has worked at State Farm for over twenty years. He played college football and enjoys participating in all kinds of sports with the kids. How very blessed I am to have him for my husband. | Meet KEVIN

5: Meet Cindy | Cindy was born in Nebraska surrounded by lots of family. After graduating high school, she went to college and then obtained her Law Degree. Cindy is such a wonderful wife and my best friend. She is such a caring person and loves to put together care baskets for friends and family who are experiencing tragic events in their life. She is a great mother to our children. Cindy loves to read, play board games, and enjoys soaking in her bath tub. She brings me such joy and I can't wait to get home from work and see her. | By Kevin:

It has been a wonderful journey.We adopted Dylan, who also has DS, 4 years ago. Dylan has brought us such joy that we would love to expand our family to include one more precious little one.

17: Our Faith | We are a Catholic Family and active in our Faith. Every Sunday we attend Mass as well as occasionally during the week. After Mass there are donuts and social hour. Our parish is an extended family for us and we do many activities. We try to make the Lord the center of our lives and we participate in different devotions: family rosary and prayer each day, Bible study, May Crowning, First Friday and First Saturday devotions as well as participating in all the Sacraments. Our faith is the very fabric of our lives and has supported us throughout the many trials of our lives, especially during the six year battle our son Tommy endured with leukemia. How the Lord carried us through it all when none of us had the strength to go on. God is good and has blessed us in so many, many ways but especially with all the beautiful children He has sent to us. He truly is an awesome God!

18: Thank you for taking the time to visit with our family. We will be keeping you close to our hearts in prayer.

19: May the Lord Bless you and keep you and may His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. May He look upon you with kindness and grant you His peace. Love In Christ, Kevin & Cindy
