Dear Birthmother,

First and foremost, thank you for your consideration and time in learning more about us and looking at our profile. We know this can be a confusing and overwhelming time and we hope you feel supported and loved throughout your journey. We cannot begin to understand how you are feeling and the difficulty of this decision, but want to thank you.

We are Shiloh and Kade. We were both born and raised in Texas and currently reside in the DFW metroplex. Through adoption we hope to grow our family and provide a sibling to our son, Knox. We are excited to begin this journey and hope this glimpse into our lives shows you the love and happiness we have to offer in parenting a child.

We have included a Promise Letter at the back of the book, we would love if you took the time to read it. We look forward to building this relationship as we get to know one another and discuss creating an adoption plan. We are so appreciative of your consideration.

About Us

We met in college while working in the student union. After our paths kept crossing due to work, we finally introduced ourselves and began our love story! We dated for about 3 years before tying the knot and have been married for 5 years. Kade is more reserved and introverted and Shiloh is definitely the extrovert, so we tend to balance one another. We love to explore our community, attend community events and spend time making memories.

We have a 4 year son, Knox. He is full of energy and lights up any room he walks in to! He was born very prematurely, but beat the odds and you would never know it now by looking at him. He is your typical toddler boy, loves dinosaurs, Mickey Mouse and playing outside. Over the past year, we have been asking him if he wants a sibling and explaining what that would look like through adoption. He is definitely going to be the big brother who wants to help. We can't wait to see him transition into the role of big brother and experience that love you have when you have siblings.

We are big into traveling and have been to quite a few countries in Europe. We enjoy exploring our home state, whether we head to the beach, hill country or to a cabin in the "mountains".

We both work for the same company, but in completely different areas. Kade is in cyber security and Shiloh is a corporate trainer. We have worked together for over 5 years now and definitely love the benefits of working with each other!

Our Home

We moved into our neighborhood about a year ago. This move was prompted by a want to have a family-friendly neighborhood. We were lucky to find a house on a cul-de-sac in a neighborhood that prioritizes family. We have an awesome playground, a pool with a separate toddler/baby pool and walking trails all around the neighborhood.

We chose this house due to the open nature of the floorplan and the yard. We love to all be in the same space so it's very open and flows well. The yard in the front is a lush green grass with a big tree, that lends to spending lots of time outside with our neighbors.

The city we are in is a district that has choice schools. They vary from coding/app development focused, to arts, to leadership. All of these are included in the school district and have enrollments we can sign up for.

Our Extended Family

Both of our families are nearby, which has helped them become an integral part of our lives. We both love spending time with our families and are lucky that our families also enjoy spending time together!

Family vacations are common for us and it is fun to be able to travel with family, it allows us to create those special memories with everyone and allows bonding between grandparents and grandkids along with cousins building a special bond.

Our Family Traditions

Holidays are such a fun time because we are with family. We have multiple holiday celebrations, so we can enjoy with everyone! Christmas is definitely one of Shiloh's favorite family traditions. We spend Christmas morning at home enjoying a relaxing morning in our matching pj's opening presents. Then we head over to Shiloh's mom's house where our entire family gathers for the remainder of the day. Everyone brings food, we spend time together, open our stockings, eat dinner and then do the big gift opening. Her favorite part of the day is the game night that follows. The laughs, stories and memories are some of her most treasured!

Another tradition that was started by Shiloh's uncle is Saturday family dinners at her mom's house. It's a staple in our week that we look forward to and allows the new generation of cousins to grow up just as close as we did!

What Led Us To Adoption

After having our son, we realized we wanted to grow our family, but knew biologically we couldn’t. We had talked about adoption early in our marriage and it seemed like a natural next step. We feel honored to be trusted to raise another child and to provide a safe and loving home for them to grow to be who they truly want to become. Our 4 year old son is ecstatic to become a big brother and create that bond that is so special.
