As much as Courtney loves her career in the medical field because it gives her a sense of accomplishment, it also gives her work/family balance. She works four days a week. That allows her to have every Friday through Sunday off to spend time with family and friends.
We promise to provide a fun and safe household where your child will always feel loved.
Courtney is the oldest child and has one sister who recently got married and moved to a suburb in Texas. Her family is small but is very close knit. Her father lives a few blocks away from us and visits almost everyday. Her mother lives two hours away, but comes to visit once or twice a month. Courtney's parents are both retired teachers who molded her into the person she is today.
Kevin has a very small family as he is an only child. He was raised by his grandparents who are now deceased. We have many close friends that have become family to us. We enjoy having get-togethers in our home where we often cook good 'ole Cajun food, such as crawfish, shrimp, gumbo, boudin'', cracklins, pig roast, etoufee, oysters, rice and gravy. We gather so we all can enjoy each others company. The local culture is "everyone treats each other as family". All of our friend's children refer to Kevin as "uncle Kevin" because he tends to create a close bond with them. He just has a way with kids.
We can imagine that throughout this process you will have many questions, fears and unknowns. We are both far from perfect, but we have learned to embrace it all with a smile.
Equally so, there are certain things we can promise to you and your child. We promise to create a home that nurtures and fosters creativity and acceptance. We promise to face the challenges of parenthood with positive reinforcement and greet each day with new beginnings and thankfulness. We promise to provide a fun and safe household where your child will always feel loved. We promise to live the best versions of ourselves as we possibly can. We will teach your child the same.
We hope you follow your heart through this difficult decision and find what you imagine for your child. If you choose us to parent your child, you will always be known in our home and spoken about on a daily basis. We are more than ready to take the next step and excited by the possibilities of being able to share it with you in whatever way makes you feel comfortable.
With deep admiration,
Courtney and Kevin
