Hello, we are Kurtis and Kori.
We met in August of 2007 when Kori was in college with Kurtis’ sister and quickly got to know each other. Kori says when they met his kind eyes and sweet smile are what drew her to getting to know him. Kurtis says when they met her beautiful smile is what drew him to getting to know her. We quickly fell in love and married the next year on September 13, 2008. We have been together for over 10 years now and in that time our love and respect for one another has grown immensely. We’ve had our highs and lows but our love has always endured with our faith as our foundation. We keep growing, keep learning, keep loving together as we enjoy this life God has given us.
We have 2 amazing daughters, Rilee and Paige, that God has blessed us with during our fertility struggles and losses. God put adoption into Kori’s heart when she was just a teenager on a mission trip with her church serving young children and families. Over the years that calling God gave to her grew stronger and throughout our relationship we discussed it and prayed about adopting. After the fertility treatments, 2 losses, high risk pregnancies that we had gone through while trying to grow our family that calling and desire to adopt kept growing stronger, we knew it was time to listen to God and be faithful to his calling for us.
Kurtis is an amazing man, who is hardworking, helpful and loving. He is an electrical contractor, volunteer fireman and a volunteer youth leader at our church. Kori is a wonderful woman with a big heart. She is caring, helpful, and patient. Kori is a former teacher but has been a stay at home mom since Rilee was 2 years old and volunteers in our church. We love to make each other laugh daily and enjoy spending time together. Kurtis enjoys grilling, fishing, golfing, hunting, and sports. Kori enjoys photography, baking, fishing and sports. We both enjoy spending time with our family too. We are blessed to both have loving, supportive families in our lives that we are close with.
We love to do activities as a family and as a couple. We enjoy going on adventures and traveling. We enjoy visiting family, going to local parks, sporting events, concerts, going to the lake, going to indoor trampoline parks, and playing outside at our home. We love family adventures big and small. We always enjoy the fun right along of side our kids. We make sure we have family time and also spend one on one time with each child.
It is with great hope that we will get to do these things and more with your child. We will cherish the opportunity to adopt, parent, and love your child unconditionally, provide support, a safe, stable home, and great education for your child. We will be devoted to providing your child with all the love, security, support and joy we can offer. We want you to know that we plan to raise your child to always know you, your great love and how important your child is to you. Your child will be so loved beyond measure by us, our daughters, our families, and our friends.
We have a wonderful support system of family, friends and church family praying over our adoption journey and everyone involved in it. We have been praying daily for the expectant mother who will one day choose us, her child and for everyone involved in our adoption journey. We are looking forward growing our family through adoption and seeing how God writes our family’s story.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about us.
