Adoptive family

Dear Birthparent(s),

Thank you so much for considering us as an adoptive family for your child. Our desire is to provide a loving, stable, and secure home centered on unconditional love and support. If you choose us, we will be committed to ensuring your child understands who they are and where they came from.

We believe that family is much more than shared genetics – rather, family is built on strong bonds of trust, love, and support. We are a blended family, and Kathy has fully embraced Seth’s children, Sam and Katie. Open adoption is a natural extension of our family dynamic.

Our wedding day!

Kathy grew up in a small rural community in Northwest Ohio, the oldest of four children. After years in Wisconsin working as a college professor, she relocated to Ohio to be closer to her family and now works as a researcher. Kathy has a passion for cooking. She also loves fitness and a healthy lifestyle, preparing healthy meals and running 10Ks. Kathy feels lucky to have a family-friendly work schedule that allows her to work from home or flex her hours as needed. Seth says Kathy “is kind and loving, smart, funny, and quick-witted, and the kids and I feel blessed to have her in our lives!”

Seth grew up in Central Ohio, and as a child spent summers with his father in Atlanta. After graduating college, Seth obtained his law degree in Georgia and relocated back to Ohio. Today, he is a government lawyer and is passionate about his work. Seth is an avid runner, having completed several marathons. His favorite pastimes are eating Kathy’s cooking, watching football with Sam, and doing crafts with Katie. Kathy says Seth “is easy to talk to and laugh with, and when I met him, I felt as if I had known him all my life.”

Loving family
We love summer weather and being outside

The Kids: Sam, 13, is calm and analytical and is likely the future software developer and/or engineer in the family. He loves computers, video gaming, playing lacrosse, riding bikes, and hanging out with his friends. Katie, 9, is vivacious and energetic and loves animals. A former Irish dancer, she is currently excelling at ice skating. She likes crafts and creating art and is an expert at making homemade slime.

We live in a lovely cul-de-sac in a desirable neighborhood just outside of Westerville, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus. Multiple young families with children live in our cul-de-sac, and it is a great space for taking family walks, riding bikes, and playing with neighborhood kids. Downtown Columbus is close by, and we have ample access to parks, museums, and amazing restaurants and festivals.

To Our Future Child: We look forward to getting to know you and helping you to realize and cultivate all your unique talents and skills. Sam and Katie are excited to be a big brother and big sister, and they will be positive role models for you. We will love you unconditionally and promise to provide you with everything you need to be successful in whatever areas of life you choose. Our wish for you is that you become a kind and loving human being, and we will do our best to ensure this happens.

Thank you again for taking the time to learn about us.

With gratitude and respect,
Kathy and Seth
