James and Kelsey


Our names are James and Kelsey. Thank you so much for taking the time to learn a little about our family. We can only imagine what a difficult journey this is as you decide whether you will make an adoption plan for you and your child. Please know we already have so much love and respect for you and we are praying for you as you journey through this process.

James and I met in 2009 and knew almost immediately after dating that we were it for each other. We were married in November 2010. We have been blessed with two beautiful children, Ethan who is 5 years old and Maura who is 3 years old. While our relationship and marriage have been full of joy and so many great times, we have also had some difficult days. Our daughter’s birth changed our world. She was injured during labor and delivery and because of this she has cerebral palsy. Adjusting to life with a child who has severe special needs was difficult. However, God was faithful and James and I fought for each other and our marriage and today our marriage is stronger because of this and we are so thankful and happy with the family that we have.

We have always dreamed that our family would grow through adoption. It has been a passion of ours that has excited us since the beginning of our marriage. After trying for a year to have a 3rd child we were told the because of the emergency C-section that saved our daughter’s life, we are no longer able to have biological children. At that point, we knew God was telling us our time to adopt is now. We are so excited and cannot wait to meet our next child.

We want you to know that we will love your child unconditionally and devote ourselves to providing him or her with all of the love, security and joy that we can offer.

With much love,

James, Kelsey, Ethan & Maura
