Dear Expectant Parent

"God knew my heart needed you."
We are Kevin (age 35) and Emily Anderson (age 32), and we are so honored that you are taking the time to get to know us, thank you. A little about us. We have been married for over 4 amazing years and currently live in Edmonds, WA.

We have been praying for you and your baby for a very long time and we know without a doubt that this is exactly what we are supposed to be doing.

We are in the process of remodeling a 5-bedroom home on a 5 acre lot in Skagit Valley. Our excitement, drive, and hard work for this next move is all for our future family. Since we began dating, we told each other we wanted a big family. We imagined a house full of kiddos, a yard full of animals, plenty of room to run and play, and a peaceful property to create memories. We have been trying to grow our family for the past 2.5 years. We have undergone countless medical appointments, procedures, and treatments, and unfortunately a few miscarriages along the way. Even before our fertility situation, we always knew that we wanted to adopt a child to grow our family. Throughout the fertility process we have felt an even stronger calling to adopt and are readier than ever to bring home a baby.

We have been praying for you and your baby for a very long time and we know without a doubt that this is exactly what we are supposed to be doing. We want you to know that we think you are amazing. The choice that you are making for your child is courageous, selfless, and so very loving. We cannot comprehend how you must be feeling but please know that we are very proud of you and will be forever grateful to you for this decision you are making.
We are a very loving, faith driven, and happy family. As we discuss what types of parents we want to be, we think that we would like to be similar to our parents (as we both loved our childhood and had great experiences growing up) with a few changes here and there to be ourselves. We believe in structure, consequences to actions, silliness and humor, lots of fun, and unconditional love. We want our child to always know, no matter what happens in life, that we love them unconditionally and will support them in whatever they do. Family and faith are two of the most important things we want to teach to our kids. It is what is most important to us and we hope to show them that every day by example.

We cannot thank you enough for taking the time to get to know us. Please feel free to CALL/TEXT us at any time at (206) 930-8598. Or please contact our attorney at (206) 728-5858. Ask for Joan and reference file #1840.

"Family isn't an important thing. It's everything."

A little about Kevin...

I grew up in Skagit Valley, Washington, an area of the country that I believe is one of the most beautiful places in the world. I may be a little bias though. I am an attorney and my law practice is currently located in Lynnwood, Washington.

Being a dad will be the greatest accomplishment of my life.


I find my work very rewarding as I am able to help a lot of people who otherwise wouldn't have the opportunity. I feel lucky that my job does allow a lot of flexibility with my time. I am able to work from home if needed and can make changes to my hours to be available for things important to my family. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my wife Emily, as well as family and friends. We like to be physically active and do things outdoors. Supporting our local sports teams (Go Seahawks!) is also a passion of ours.

For my family and those that I love, I am loyal almost to a fault. I have been described as a protector. I will always keep my family safe and secure in all aspects of life. I am committed to my family and family will always come first. I will schedule my work around my family, not the other way around. I feel that I am patient and a good teacher, and am excited to teach our children important life lessons (and little things too, like how to tie their shoes) and watch them grow and become their own person. I am expressive with my feelings and will tell our children how much I love them every chance I get. Being a dad will be the greatest accomplishment of my life.

"Speak to your children as if they are the wisest, kindest, most beautiful and magical humans on earth, for what they believe is what they will become."

A little about Emily...

I grew up in East Wenatchee, WA in the home that my parents still live in today. I work as a Human Resources and Administrative Director for an integrated healthcare clinic in the Seattle area. I really enjoy my work and take a lot of pride in the fact that I started with the company as a front desk coordinator and now am part of the upper management team.

If we are lucky enough to be blessed with a child, I will be taking on the role of a stay at home mom. This change excites me.

If we are lucky enough to be blessed with a child, I will be taking on the role of a stay at home mom. This change excites me. I am a very active individual and am excited to play a huge role in our child's up bringing. I adore my husband and love spending time with him. Whether we are just hanging out at home, going for a hike or going to our local dog park to check out all the puppies. I feel blessed, because we have such a strong marriage and friendship. We always have fun together, laugh and are able to be silly.

"We loved you before we knew you, even when there was just hope for you, we loved you."

Our Promise.

We promise to love your child unconditionally and forever, and always support them in anything and everything they do. We promise to provide them with a home that is safe and full of love, laughter, faith, and encouragement every single day of their life. We will do our absolute best to give them the world.
