Meet Mike & Kelly M.

Adoptive family.

Hello!

Thank you for taking the time to consider us as adoptive parents for your child. We have the utmost of respect and admiration for you. We hope that as you learn more about us you will feel assured that we will provide your child with a loving and nurturing home. We look forward to sharing the love of our family with your child, and we will make sure your child always knows they are loved by you.

We are a fun-loving family that enjoys spending time together. Our family first began to grow when we adopted our beloved dog, Maggie, in 2015. She is now four years old and has brought much joy and love into our home.

Michael comes from a large and loving family. Aside from his mother and father, Michael has two younger brothers, a stepmom, and a stepsister. Everyone is married, which adds two sisters-in-law, a brother-in-law, three nieces, and two nephews! Needless to say, with such a big family, holidays are fun. All of Michael’s family lives between Columbus and Warren, Ohio, which is where he grew up. Following college, Michael’s sense of duty led him to enlist in the military, where he served in the United States Navy. After earning an honorable discharge from the Navy, Michael received his MBA degree from The Fisher College of Business at The Ohio State University. He now works in the Columbus area as a Financial Analyst. Michael’s favorite pastimes include cooking, reading, and watching movies. Because he is an advocate for exercise, Michael put together a gym in his and Kelly’s home.

Kelly’s family is a little bit smaller than Michael’s, but still lots of fun! Kelly has her father and her sister along with two nephews and a niece. Kelly’s mother passed away unexpectedly in September of 2017. She was a loving and warm person, and the family misses her dearly. She was excited and very supportive of Kelly and Michael adding to their family through adoption and will undoubtedly be looking over them and their future child. Kelly works full-time in Columbus at the local sports radio station where she sells advertising. It’s a fast-paced environment, but she manages to stay on top of everything there, while also making time for friends and family. Her favorite pastimes include reading, yoga, taking Maggie for walks, and eating Michael’s cooking!

Why we want to adopt. After getting married in 2014, we tried to have children, but were unsuccessful over a period of two years. Given that both of us have looked very forward to the day when we would be parents, we are turning to adoption to complete our family. Because so many among our friends and family have children, we get to be around kids a lot — and we love it! We can’t wait to have a child of our home to love and care for. We are incredibly grateful to you for helping us make a family.

Our Promise. We want you to know that we will raise our child with devotion, love, and attention. We value education and will encourage our child to develop his or her strengths. We hope to pass on the values of respect for self and others, compassion, and kindness. We wish to nurture our child’s imagination and help them realize their full potential. We truly honor your involvement in an open adoption if you wish. We will embrace you in our lives, and your child will always know they are loved by you.

With love and respect,
Mike & Kelly M.
