We admire you for having the courage and strength to make an adoption plan. We assure you that your child will be loved by us and our family unconditionally. Always and forever.
We are Ken and Rod from Green, Ohio. Ken was born in Coventry, Ohio and Rod was born in Akron, Ohio. Both of our families (including grandparents, parents, brothers, aunts, uncles, cousins, great-cousins, and even great-great-cousins) live nearby. We enjoy spending time with our family and friends whether its holidays or Sunday dinner. Our family includes our dog, Piper, who Ken rescued eleven years ago.
Ken went to college at The Ohio State University. Rod went to Walsh University and the University of Akron School of Law. We met six and a half years ago on a blind date. Yes, you read that right. Our friends had the great idea to set us up and we could not be more grateful. We went to get coffee for our first date where we talked, and talked, and talked some more. We still go on dates at least once a week. We were married in August 2015 in the Florida Keys surrounded by our family and friends in a place that means so much to us.
Ken owns his own construction company where he builds people’s dream houses. Rod works as a lawyer with a firm that he loves in Canton, Ohio. We make sure to take time away from work to travel. We love seeing new places and believe that taking time to go away is the best way to spend quality time together. Piper goes on vacation with us. Our child will see and experience the world with us.
We live in a quiet and close-knit neighborhood with neighbors who are like family. Our small community is extremely diverse, and we know it will be the perfect place to grow our family because there are many other families in our neighborhood who have been blessed by adoption. Our house is a gathering place and safe haven for our family, neighbors, and friends alike. We are enveloped by love and we will ensure that our child feels that warm love throughout our entire lives.
