Meet Kate & Mike K.

Adoptive family

Dear Birthparent,

We know this must be a difficult and confusing time for you. What a strong, brave, and courageous parent you are. It would be our honor to raise your child.

We are Katie and Mike. We met in college and have been strongly committed to each for 17 years. We were blessed with our first child, Nora, in 2015. After trying for several years to have another child, we are turning to adoption to grow our family. We talked about adoption when we first met. We want our children to have siblings and to be lifelong friends.

Loving parents for your child
Our simple but beautiful wedding

For fun and relaxation, we enjoy spending time with family, exploring our metro parks, going to the zoo, taking family vacations, and finding our next house project. We also love exploring the best ice cream and pizza shops in town!

About Katie I work with individuals with developmental disabilities, helping and inspiring them to reach their goals. I was recently promoted to case manager supervisor and now oversee an entire team of social workers. I absolutely love my work and cannot say how much it means to me to be able help others.

While I take my career seriously, my main passion is spending time with family, striving to be a caring and strong wife and mother. Most of all, I love raising Nora.

We promise to love your child as our own
Nora and Mommy

In my free time, I love getting together with family, kayaking, practicing yoga, taking walks, reading, and relaxing in the backyard. I adore HGTV, where I get so many ideas for our next house project. I also enjoy craft projects — even when they go wrong, they are still fun!

What Mike says: Katie is a determined, caring, strong leader, wife, and mother. While she takes her career seriously, her main passion is spending time with her family, especially Nora.

About Mike I am a production crew leader and supervisor in manufacturing. I teach my team how to do their jobs and do them well, which instills in them a sense of pride.

I enjoy golfing, reading, canoeing, biking, watching the Cleveland Indians or Chicago Blackhawks, and listening to good comedy shows. I love music — I have a big song and record collection and love attending concerts and playing guitar and drums. I also adore spending time with Nora, especially building Legos and playing puzzles. We even built the swing set in the backyard together. When it comes to food, pizza is a favorite and I really enjoy grilling for the family.

A wonderful home for your child
Discussing life with Daddy

What Katie says: Mike is easy going, creative, caring, and intelligent as a husband and father, and as a supervisor. Also, he makes the best lasagna!

About Nora Nora is four years old and the only child in our family. She has a great sense of humor, enjoys the beauty in everything, and loves caring for others. Nora loves Legos, magnet blocks, coloring, painting, watching movies, and playing with her stuffed animals. She enjoys time outside, including sunset walks, watching birds, riding her bike and scooter, and playing in her sandbox and on the swingset. Other Nora favorites include ballet, wearing dresses, and the color purple.

We live in Waterville, Ohio, a suburb of Toledo. We love our home, which has plenty of space for a growing family, including a big backyard. Our community has lots of children, supportive neighbors, and highly-rated schools. We live within walking distance of the school, playgrounds, and biking trails.

Thank you for reading our profile and considering us as adoptive parents for your precious child. We can’t wait to meet you and start this journey together. We thank you for making a selfless and brave decision to spread love from your family to ours. With so many hearts loving your child, we know they will grow and flourish!
