Meet James & Kasey
September 4, 2004 was the happiest days of our lives. Soon after marriage, we decided to try having children. After many years of doctor appointments and treatments, our eyes and hearts became open to adoption. We spoke and asked for wisdom from many friends and family who had either adopted a child or gave a child up for adoption and knew that this was the path for us. The Lord has molded and changed our hearts through this process and we are excited to build our family through the gift of adoption.
During this time of waiting, we were able to share the news with our large extended family as well as our church family and friends and the support has been overwhelming. They have supported us financially in our pursuit of adoption as well as through prayer and love. We have also been able to purchase a home and become debt free in the process, which has helped us establish a home free of the weight of debt and to give our child opportunities we never had growing up in families that did not have much money.
James and Kasey met traveling with a singing group and had the chance to travel the world together. They started dating once the tour ended. James lived in Georgia and Kasey lived in Colorado, but talked on the phone constantly as well as visited each other as often as they could and eventually married and have now been married 13 years.
Kasey has been an elementary music educator for 14 years and absolutely adores her students and parents. Being an educator allows her to choose her child’s place of education and have summer and breaks off! She has received her Master’s Degree, is an accomplished pianist and spends free time playing piano for her church, various schools, theaters, and competitions. She has 1 brother and 1 sister and her parents have been married for 42 years. Kasey’s sister is married and has a set of twins and a 1-year old boy and Kasey’s brother and his wife are expecting a baby boy in April. Kasey loves spending time with them and can’t wait for her little one to be able to play with their cousins! She loves reading mysteries, the holidays, especially Christmas, the color purple, her favorite food is spaghetti, and she loves traveling to see her family in Colorado.
James is employed with a heating and air company. The flexible hours he has and the small company he works for allows him to use his extra time for his other interests and hobbies, including singing, playing basketball, volleyball, and baseball, and spending time with friends and family, including going to the beach every September with some friends. James has 4 sisters and between the 4 of them, he has 12 nieces and nephews. They all live very close to each other, so they are all able to spend a lot of time together. We can’t wait for our child to be able to meet and play with his or her many cousins. Both James and Kasey love to take free time and see family as well as travel the world. We look forward to giving our child these same opportunities.
We have a family member who gave up their child for adoption. They have given us great insight into what a difficult and stressful decision you are facing. We pray for our child’s birth mother every day and pray the Lord will guide you in your decision.
Thank you again for taking the time to get to know us and consider us as parents.
