A Letter from Steven & Kim
Hello from Oklahoma! We are a family of three that loves experiencing new things together. We enjoy getting outside to ride bikes, swim or explore a new park. We also love cuddling up for a movie night with stovetop popcorn. We have always wanted to adopt, and even talked about it on our first date. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us a little better, we are looking forward to meeting you.
We met at church eight years ago and got married less than a year later. We have been married for seven years now, and recently moved back home to Oklahoma to be closer to our families. Our son Rylan is three years old, and can’t wait to be a big brother! Some of our favorite activities as a couple include: movie nights, antique shopping and eating sushi. As a family we enjoy camping, volunteering at our church, and playing games together. We are most looking forward to getting to celebrate all the milestones with a new little one in our home.
Steven is a hard-working, generous and loving father. He is always willing to lend a hand, giving his time and resources. Steven is in a leadership position at his work, where he fits and welds large utility poles.
Outside of work, Steven enjoys spending quality time with his family and friends, going on off-road trips and camping. He spends his free time outside or working in the garage on metal fabrication and vehicle projects. His favorite activities to do with Rylan are bike riding, fishing, and walks with our dogs. Steven’s love and understanding of the Lord has grown tremendously in the past several years. He leads our family to love the Lord and serve others. He is looking forward to sharing his extensive hobbies with your child.
Kim is kind, patient and detail oriented. She excels at making our home feel welcoming and keeping everything (and everyone) organized. She enjoys hosting friends and family for dinner, and going above and beyond to make everyone feel special.
Her favorite hobbies include cooking, decorating and antique shopping. Kim loves spending time with Rylan and taking him to experience new things. Her favorite activities to do with Rylan include baking, crafts, and reading.
Kim is passionate about her job working for a non-profit that serves the elderly in our community. She has such a generous heart and always puts others needs above her own. Kim will always make sure your child feels loved and heard. She can’t wait to share her love of reading with them and get to know their sweet personality.
Rylan is a playful, loving, and joyful three year old. He enjoys playing with his friends, and gets along well with children of all ages. Some of his favorite things right now are vehicles, robots and dinosaurs. Rylan wants to be just like his dad when he grows up, but loves to cook with mom in the kitchen! We all enjoy reading books together and praying each night before bed.
Both of our families are thrilled to welcome another child through adoption. We have two nephews and one niece who we spend time with often; they are Rylan’s best friends. We are thankful to live 10 to 30 minutes away from Grandparents, Great Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and friends we consider family. We also have family in other states that we enjoy visiting. Our nephew was adopted and our best friends adopted their daughter, we have a wonderful support network!
Our city is a great family community with tons of activities for children of all ages. Our home has 4 bedrooms and plenty of space for children to play both inside and outside. We love how cozy and welcoming our home feels, and that it gives us room to grow. There is a room ready to be personalized for your child.
We enjoy walks around our neighborhood with our two dogs, Zoey and Mae, and visiting the park close by. Our neighborhood is very safe, and the elementary school is within walking distance. We are looking forward to planting a garden together in the back yard this spring.
We promise to love your child unconditionally and provide all the opportunities they desire. Every day we will laugh, play and read together. Being parents has brought us so much joy and we take the opportunity seriously. We will always honor their relationship with you, and welcome you into our extended family. Your child will learn about the love of God daily. We want you to know that we have already begun praying for you and your child.

|More About Our Family|
|Our Family Traditions|
We love celebrating holidays and birthdays with our families. Kim enjoys planning themed birthday parties every year for Rylan. We host our extended family at our home for Thanksgiving; Steven smokes the turkey. One of our favorite family traditions is chopping down a Christmas tree together. We also love attending the candle light Christmas Eve service at church.
|Our Church Family|
We belong to a wonderful church in our community, that is extremely generous and welcoming. Our small group is full of other families with similar aged children that we get together with outside of church. Rylan loves attending the children's church on Sunday and Wednesday nights.
Our pups, Mae and Zoey, were both rescued from a local shelter in Oklahoma. They are very energetic and enjoy all the scratches they can get! We enjoy going on family walks during the week around the neighborhood.
We have always had the joint desire to adopt but were never sure of the right timing. Kim had some health complications a couple years ago, and has been advised not to have any more children. After moving back to Oklahoma, we feel that we have a strong support group. We are really looking forward to growing our family through adoption!
