Our names are Kyle and Abby and we first would like to thank you for looking at our profile. We know that what you are experiencing right now can be difficult and we have so much respect for you and the amount of courage you have during this process. Although we cannot fully understand all the thoughts and feelings you are going through, we want you to know that we are on your side. We would love the chance to tell you a little more about ourselves.

We met in 2006 while working together at Kent State University. We were friends first and started dating shortly after. Since she was 19 years old, Abby knew she would have a very difficult time getting pregnant. Although we were always open to adoption, we decided to try to get pregnant after marriage. After several years of unsuccessful attempts, we began to formally explore adoption. Abby discovered Caring For Kids through her friends from her women’s bible study at church. We decided Caring For Kids was a perfect fit for us after talking with their birth mother counselors and realizing how much they do to take care of the birth parents and expectant mothers. We adopted our daughter, Addison, after an emergency placement a few years ago. Addison is sweet, funny, and smart. She loves books, animals, and riding her scooter. We have two cats, Max and Leo, and live in our home close to wonderful schools and parks.

Kyle is currently a security officer at a local corporate headquarters. Some of his favorite interest are spending time with his family and friends and watching all Cleveland sports teams. He always knew he wanted a family and could not be more excited for the chance to become a father again.

Abby just finished her tenth year teaching middle school and loves her time with her students. She enjoys being outdoors and also spending time with friends and family. A strong Christian faith is important and a crucial part of our lives. We are involved at church where we have developed a strong community of friends.

One of our goals as adoptive parents is to make sure that our family feels whole and complete. We want to work with you to find the perfect blend of how our two families can become one, whether that is with just pictures, choosing a middle name, different types of communication, occasional visits, or whatever we all decide together. Our number one goal is to raise an independent and kind-hearted child who is surrounded by love every day of their life. We plan to do this with support from our families and each other. We work well together as a team, value honesty, education, and communication, and are filled with joy and anticipation for our new family.
