2: Hello, Welcome to our profile, and thank you for visiting us. We are very grateful that you are willing to read through our profile. We can’t even begin to understand the emotional decision you are going through right now, but we hope that by looking at this small snapshot of our life we can put you at ease by showing you how loved your child would be in our home. Our names are Kevin and Jenny. We met each other at a Halloween party in 2006. Kevin asked me out to dinner and we sat at the restaurant talking for hours. We talked about our families and funny stories about our nieces and nephews, it was as if we were old friends. I could definitely see the man I was meant to marry in him on that very first date. We have been together for 5 years and come this September will have been married for 3 years. In those 5 years we have experienced a niece’s graduation, the death of loved ones, the heartbreak of infertility, and the blessing of hope for a family through Hope's Promise. Kevin was born in Denver and grew up in Littleton, Colorado. He is the third of four siblings (an older brother and sister and a younger sister). Kevin has a great sense of humor and puts everyone I know at ease with his wonderful personality. He has a way with the nieces and nephews and they love running around and playing with him any chance they get. He works as a manager for a financial firm where he has worked for almost 10 years. He has quite a passion for hunting, which he loves to do with family and friends. He also enjoys fishing, which is a passion that he shares with my father. Fly-fishing is something that we both love to do with my dad and other family members whenever we get the chance. I, Jenny, was born in Iowa City, Iowa, but moved to Colorado when I was one so I pretty much consider myself a native. I grew up in Colorado Springs and I am the middle child of three in my family with an older brother, and a younger brother. Currently I am a housewife. I recently quit my position of 11 years with the Denver Post because Kevin and I both want to be able to have a parent be home for our child. I have enjoyed getting our home ready for our new addition to the family. I enjoy cooking and putting together meals for the family gatherings and also the day-to-day meals. I also enjoy scrapbooking and documenting our family moments. | Our Wedding Day | Kevin with his sisters and brother | Jenny with her brothers | Our Home
3: We enjoy traveling, being outdoors, and spending time with our family and friends. Our family is active, and we enjoy both watching and playing games. Family is the most important thing to us and that is why we chose to live in the state that we both grew up in. We have lived in our house for 3 years. There are many families with young children in our sub-division who are always out playing whether it is in the open space or at the community pool. We are also a block away from the grade school where there is a public playground. We love taking our dogs for walks, especially in Cherry Creek State Park with all of it's trails. We are very fortunate to have both of our families (parents and siblings), living close to us. Kevin’s older brother and sister, and my older brother all have families of their own giving us 8 nieces and nephews between the three of them. Kevin and I often get together with our families to have dinner, watch or play a game, or to just hang out and enjoy each others' company. Our faith is the foundation of our lives. We were both raised in Christian households and find that to be the core of our relationship. We learned early on in our marriage that God has plans for us, and for how we were to start our family. Through our faith and prayer we continue to trust in Him to lead our family. As parents we plan to encourage our children to become who God has designed them to be. To choose kindness and respect when talking to others, and to know God’s grace that allows us all to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and to try again. We understand that in order for us to experience the joy of a new addition to our family it will be as a result of a difficult and important decision that you must make. We want you to know that we are praying along with you that you will find the family that is right for your child. And if ours is the family that you choose, we promise to love your child unconditionally and to raise them knowing the wonderful gift of life that you have given them. We are filled with joy and anticipation as we think of that possibility. With gratitude and love, | Our community pool | Three play areas at the grade school a block from our house

6: Get Moving | We get involved in different causes, each of them have a special meaning to us. Kevin volunteers with Ducks Unlimited, a wetlands conservation group. We also participate in the Furry Scurry that is put on by the Denver Dumb Friends League which is where we got our dogs from. Jenny has done the "Tri For The Cure" to help raise funds for breast cancer research. We have also participated in the Undy 5000 which is a run/walk that is meant to bring awareness to colon cancer. This one is important to our family because Kevin's father passed away from this. We also love that it is a family fun run that everyone can enjoy and raise money for a good cause at the same time. Kevin also participated in the "Running of The Green" another family fun run in downtown Denver. And finally who doesn't love a fun scavenger hunt with friends in our own version of The Amazing Race. | The above photo is Jenny at the Furry Scurry. | The photo to the right is of Kevin out on a hunting trip.

8: Up... Up... And Away. | One of our favorite things to attend is the Hot Air Balloon Festival in Colorado Springs. Jenny attended these as a kid growing up, and now we meet up with Jenny's family to enjoy the beauty of the balloons. Even though you have to get up early to make it there, seeing all of the beautiful balloons around you makes it worth it. | Jenny | Jenny and Kevin with two of their nieces, Isabelle and Cassidy
