Meet Kelly & Ron W.

Kelly & Ron W.

Dear Birthparents,

Thank you for taking the time to learn about us. We are very grateful to you and understand this is an incredibly hard decision to make. We hope that learning more about us will reassure you that your child will always be loved unconditionally.

Married 10 years, we are still best friends, and always show each other love and support. Through IVF we were blessed to have our son Jacob, but we were unsuccessful when we tried to have another child. We are incredibly grateful for our many blessings, but we know our family is not yet complete. We are excited to grow our loving family through adoption.

About Kelly. I have been a stylist for 21 years, and for ten of those, I’ve had my own business. While I feel blessed to love the work I do making people feel and look better, owning my own business allows me to care for my first love — family. My days off revolve around Jacob, going to the pool, the park, the zoo, Kings Island, and fun playdates in our neighborhood. I also enjoy boating, sporting events, volunteering at Jacob’s school, art, and photography, but most of all, I enjoy being a MOM.

About Ron. I graduated from Miami University with a bachelor’s in Accounting and Finance, and have been a partner at my insurance agency for 9 years. I enjoy helping people, both at work and through volunteering. I love coming home from work to big hugs from Jacob, and I especially love coaching his baseball team. For fun, I play golf, attend Reds/Bengals games, and go fishing and boating. A favorite activity of mine is spending time in Lake Cumberland with Jacob and Kelly.

About Jacob. Jacob is a loving, kind, and caring boy. He is very curious, always asking questions, and he loves being outside with friends. Jacob enjoys karate, basketball, baseball, and football. He’s crazy about animals, reading about them and searching for them in the woods. He and our Boston Terrier, Milo, are never very far apart.

Our home is located on a small, wooded cul-de-sac, in a neighborhood filled with kids playing outside — riding bikes, fishing, shooting hoops, or exploring the woods. We are the house where friends and kids come for weekly bonfires and roasting marshmallows. We have a finished basement with a bouncy house, train table, cars, art supplies, and pop-o-shot.

Our favorite vacations revolve around the beach. We especially love the holidays, attending the zoo’s Festival of Lights at Christmas, and participating in a massive neighborhood egg hunt at Easter. In the Fall, which we love, we spend every weekend visiting pumpkin patches, going to local festivals, and tracking down every hay ride we can find.

We enjoy following the Reds.

We promise to love your child with all our heart, to protect them and teach them to be kind and loving, to support and encourage their dreams, and to provide them with an excellent education and strong faith-based values. We promise to have FUN with your child, and to never take for granted the gift of having them.

The biggest thing we want you to know about us is we are a very loving family. All of the grandparents live nearby and are very involved in our son’s life. Our family is close-knit, and has so much love to give. We can’t wait to welcome a new addition into our family. Again, thank you for taking the time to read our profile. We hope learning more about us helps with your decision.

With sincerest respect,
Kelly & Ron Whitaker
