Meet Kevin & Teresa T.

Adoptive family

Dear Expectant Parents,

First and foremost, allow us to thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child! Please know that, if you choose us, your child will be raised in a loving, attentive, and caring home, and we will always honor you for the joy you have given our family.

One of the most important things you should know about our family is that our lives are grounded in love for and commitment to one another. We have the deepest love for our daughter Avery, who is an absolute joy, and we look forward to giving that same deep love to your child.

Meet Kevin and Teresa. We met one another through a church group that Teresa’s dad hosted. Both of us believe God had a plan to bring us together so we could support each other in this rollercoaster called life. We both knew after having our daughter Avery that we wanted another child, and knew adoption was the best choice for us. We are ready to expand our family to give your child a loving home full of adventure and opportunities. Avery is very affectionate with babies, and we know she would make a great big sis!! She is a caring and an empathetic helper, and really dotes on her one-year-old cousin Keaton.

We love to travel to our favorite places like Disney World as well as local places, like the zoo and parks. Teresa was fortunate to work for Disney while in college and has a strong love for most-everything Disney — we even got married in a small ceremony there! Closer to home, one of our favorite trips is the Indianapolis Zoo. It has the sea lions that Avery is fascinated with, and we always try to stay at a hotel with an indoor pool so Avery can go swimming.

pre-approved adoptive family

Teresa, by Kevin: I have never, even for a minute, second-guessed the love and devotion my wife has for our family. Teresa is a patient and kind mother and still has time to enjoy her work as a realtor. Teresa even involves Avery in her job when she can – fun stories come about when Avery gets to tag along at open houses — as the “showing assistant,” opening doors and telling buyers where the kids rooms are.

Kevin, by Teresa: When I first met Kevin, I could tell by his adventurous personality and attitude that he would be a great husband and father. Kevin and I are best friends. I feel like I can tell him anything. What I also love about Kevin is that he is driven – early in his life, his hard work paid off with him being able to attend college at West Point. We feed off each other’s encouragement and it drives me to be the best mom I can be for our family. I feel from the bottom of my heart that, with Kevin by my side, any child raised in our home will be given an abundance of love and opportunity. We are a great team.

Our Little Adventurer – Avery: Avery is five years old and has a LOT of loving qualities. She absolutely LOVES babies. When we saw how loving and nurturing Avery was, it was very clear that she will make a great “big sis” to a new baby brother or sister. Avery likes to read Curious George books, go to the zoo, and don’t forget the playground! She loves all things “girly” and frequently changes the outfits on her dolls – you never know when Belle might be wearing Cinderella’s dress!

Home and Family: Our family lives in the Kettering/Centerville area, where there are a lot of playgrounds, pools, and parks. Our favorite is Carillon Park, which is a hands-on learning park complete with a carousel! We have a season pass and it’s fun to see Avery explore the old-fashioned school house exhibit and then ride on the merry-go-round. Avery has two grandmas, Julie (Teresa’s Mom) and Kathy, (Kevin’s Second Mom) who take turns spending time with her. While Kevin is an only child, he has an Uncle Bill (a.k.a. “Uncle B”) for whom Avery has taken a real liking. He showers her with attention (and probably too many toys, lol) Teresa has two brothers and a sister in her family – giving us cousin Chloe and cousin Keaton, and Avery loves them both. We participate in family celebrations and attend church when we can – it is important to us that a child grows up learning about God’s love and kindness towards others.

Thank you again for learning about us. We appreciate you and hope you can feel the love and excitement we have about becoming parents again.

Love,
Kevin, Teresa & Avery
