Kaitlyn and Nicolas


Hello, We are Kaitlyn and Nick and we thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. Thank you for considering your choices. We are so excited to be adopting and bringing a child into our family! We hope our story will help you in making your choice. Please know that no matter what you choose, we wish you and your child all the best. We hope this profile gives you a glimpse about our family. We look forward to meeting you.


About Us


We met in high school and began dating as a Freshman (Kaitlyn) and Sophomore (Nick). We met during a high school band event, and began dating the next day. From the beginning, we have always enjoyed spending time together and maintained our relationship through our entire educational journey.


After graduation from high school, we both attended Kent State University and obtained our Bachelor of Music degree and then went on to obtain a Master of Music from the University of Akron and a Master of Education from Kent State University (yes, both of us…). Around the time that we both completed our first Master’s degree (in music) we officially tied the knot after 8 years of being together. We began to make plans to start a family and experienced some losses that have led us to our adoption journey. During this time we both made a transformational change to our health and fitness. This new healthy and fit lifestyle we live has reshaped our personal and family activities.


We’ve always known that we wanted to start a family of our own, and realized that we were meant to take a different path to achieve that dream. This journey lead us to exploring adoption and deciding this was the right path for us.



About Nicolas:


Nicolas is an avid cyclist, riding over 5,000 miles per year, and general outdoor activity enthusiast. When Nick and Kaitlyn aren’t out hiking and/or camping, Nick is often competing in any type of outdoor race to be found. This has included gravel bike races, road bike races, Half Marathons, 5ks, and Spartan races. Each year he seeks out a new challenge to tackle and experience.


About Kaitlyn:


In Kaitlyn’s free time, she loves spending time in the outdoors hiking, camping and kayaking. She hopes to visit and hike as many National Parks as possible. She is a member of a few different fitness studios and loves to find new ways to challenge herself. She is training for her first half marathon! Kaitlyn has a great passion for teaching and playing the flute. She has a small private lesson studio and has been teaching lessons for close to 15 years for people of all ages.


About our Home/Pets:


We purchased our home 11 years ago, as a fixer-upper and completed a renovation with the help of our family and friends (most without contractors). Our community has an outstanding school district and schools and parks are within walking distance from our home (the elementary school has a path that dumps onto our street).


We have 3 amazing pets, 2 dogs (Sadie and Bella) and a cat (Maddie). Our dogs love to go on camping and hiking adventures with us!
