Dear Birthmother,

Hello! Our names are Kati and Shane and welcome to our profile. We hope we can provide you with enough information about our lives to show you truly how much it would mean for us, and our families, to be adoptive parents. Something drew you to our profile, and we thank you very much for that. Love is one of the things that there is never a lack of in our household, and we are hoping that we can share our love with a little one. We believe you will find many great parents on this site, but we encourage you to read on and you will find two loving, strong- willed people determined to be first time parents!

About Us

We have been together for ten years now, married for almost six. We met in our 30's and neither of us would settle for anything less than we deserved for ourselves (part of that strong will). We never wanted to get married, unless we were SURE that we would stay together. That couldn't be truer of our relationship!

We love to be around one another and enjoy the comforts of being ourselves without any judgment. We are real with each other and are completely open with one another. We laugh, we cry and sometimes we even fart! People are surprised how much we enjoy being around one another and want nothing more than to share that love and bring a child in to our home.

We started trying to get pregnant immediately after getting married, and we quickly found we could only conceive through IVF. The next 5 years became our story of several failed IVF cycles and disappointment, but we always had hope that we could someday be parents. This is what brought us to seek adoption. You really are our last hope!

We love to travel and see new places. We try to take a vacation each year. We find the best travel is low key, where we can spend time together enjoying each other's company. On any typical day, Shane loves to play chess, do yard work and can almost always be found on the computer. Kati loves to read, watch all the latest reality TV or stay active on social media. Kati has lots of friends and is very social. She keeps the attention from Shane, which he enjoys greatly.

Our Home

We live in a small, diverse suburb of Philadelphia. Our home is a 3 bedroom, all on one floor with spacious rooms. We have a large back yard with a pool that we use for social gatherings we have at our house.

Our street is always filled with young children playing, riding their bikes or playing basketball. Our closest elementary school is around the corner, and is 1 of 6 in the school district. We have several parks that we can go to within just minutes of our house. We have a room set aside for a nursery and can't wait to fill our home with more love.

Our Extended Family

When it comes to families, we both have different experiences. Both of us have brothers and that is where the similarities end. Shane's mother and father divorced and Shane grew up with his mother. Kati's mother and father are still married after 50 years! Kati's family is fairly large and they talk all the time, even first, second and third cousins.

Our Family Traditions

Many family affairs are held at our house. We have our family reunion where Shane's family gets together and comes to swim, eat and enjoy good company every year. We also host Mother's Day, Father's Day and Thanksgiving.

The week between Christmas and the New Year is very special to our families. We eat a nice breakfast and open gifts on Christmas day, but the week is all about the New Year parade and spending more time with family and friends. Everyone gathers at Kati's parent's house. There are usually over 100 people that come every year, and it is something everyone looks forward to!

What Led Us To Adoption

Not being able to conceive on our own and wanting a child more than anything in this world has led us to adoption.

I adopted our son as a newborn after going through 12 years of infertility. Now, 23 years later, I am director at Everlasting Adoptions. Shortly after adopting our son, I started to feel a calling towards adoption. My career as a Human Resource Manager in Corporate America came to an end, and I entered what I now know is my purpose and passion in life — building families through the miracle of adoption.

Working with birthmothers and adoptive parents throughout the US for over 20 years has allowed me to utilize the skills I have been blessed with to serve others. I come to work every day not as a staff member coming to a job from 9 to 5, but as a person who is extremely dedicated and devoted to helping people like you every single day. I feel very blessed to have found my purpose, and I look forward to helping you with your adoption needs!
