A Letter from Shane & Kim

Hello from Southern California! We’re a fun couple who enjoy each moment whether we’re traveling or spending time with loved ones, or simply hanging out at home. It has been our dream to raise a family together! After years of going through fertility treatments and a miscarriage, our story led us to the adoption of our daughter. Becoming her parents has been such a joy! We’ve always wanted to raise more than one child and are hoping to continue building our family through adoption. It would be an honor to learn more about you and the life you want for your child. Hope to talk with you!

About Us

Who we are: We met through a mutual friend who set us up on a blind date. Now we’ve been happily married for 10 years! We value family, God, honesty, integrity, and accountability. Friends say we are dependable, outgoing, committed, and patient. We will do everything possible to model our values and character as parents.

Together we like:
• Traveling and experiencing the culture (and food!) of the places we visit
• Cooking with family and friends
• Amusement parks (especially Disneyland!)
• Playing board games and having game nights
• Watching movies
• Going to church and visiting with others after service

About Kim

Shane says: Kim is loving, encouraging, patient, and passionate about teaching. She’s always willing to help others. As a mom Kim will be nurturing and understanding, reasonable and fair, and excited to make memories experiencing life with our child.

Kim enjoys:
• Making crafts & gifts for loved ones
• Reading
• Collecting Disney memorabilia

About Shane

Kim says: Shane is a lovable giant! He’s outgoing, understanding, reliable, helpful, and always willing to try new things. As a dad Shane will take time to teach our kids what it means to be responsible and respectful, and he’ll always put family first.

Shane enjoys:
• Golfing
• Fishing
• Playing board games

Our Home in California

We live in beautiful Southern California, close to the beach and the mountains. Our neighborhood is diverse and friendly. We have a 5 bedroom home with a courtyard in the front entrance, a fenced-in backyard that has turf, as well as a built-in barbecue and smoker. Our home is within walking distance to parks, a community center, walking trails, and the lake. We also have access to two community clubhouses, multiple pools, and fishing pond. We’ve enjoyed preparing a room as the nursery too! This is a great place to raise our family.

Our Family

Our daughter, Nalani, is our happy toddler! She came into our family when she was about 7 months old and raising her has deepened our desire to continue building our family through adoption. Nalani has an African American/Hispanic background and we’ve committed to learning ways we can meet her cultural needs as she grows up. She will be such a sweet big sister! We’d love to raise more than one child and we’re ready to be there for any child who comes into our life.

Shane comes from a small family and Kim is from a larger family with some Filipino background. Most of Kim’s family lives local to us. We like to visit Shane’s family in the Midwest at least once a year. We also have a great circle of friends, including a few Kim has known since high school. On Kim’s side, she has uncles and cousins who were adopted. Everyone in our lives is excited about our plans to adopt a child!

Our Promise

We promise to love your child and provide a caring home where family comes first. As Christians we will raise your child in faith, and teach him or her to be responsible and independent, and to make the most of a good education. We will always take this child’s best interest to heart and create an understanding support system as parents. We promise to be honest with your child about how we became a family through adoption and talk about you with love and great appreciation.

We are very open to an open adoption, if you’d like that. We picture sharing monthly updates and photos, and yearly visits, as you’re comfortable. Of course, we will respect your wishes about the kind of connection you want after the adoption, but we will always keep communication open for you.

To connect with us, please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.

With love, Shane & Kim

In Closing
