Hello there. As I write this little blurb, my husband, Trevor, is running to the grocery store to pick up some things we need later today, and our 5 year old son is sitting at the kitchen table eating breakfast. After he eats breakfast, he wants to have some family lego time. It is raining outside and I’ve got a cup of coffee on the table beside me. All in all, I’d say this is a pretty good representation of what our home is usually like – peaceful, and full of love and gratitude. We are so grateful for even these small moments, because for years we wondered if we would ever have the chance at a family. After many years of infertility, our dream of a family became reality through adoption and the selfless gift of our son from his birth mom. I can’t possibly know how you are feeling as you read through these profiles, but I do know that adoption is a beautiful way to do something for a child that neither a birth parent or adoptive parent can do on their own. You are brave and strong to be considering this option, and you have our great respect and admiration.
A little about us
Trevor, Kellom, and I (Jamie) moved from Nashville, TN to Boise, ID in the summer of 2016. I am an elementary teacher, and Trevor is the Worship Arts and Creative Director at a church. We love to spend time together as a family. When we’re not enjoying a lazy Saturday at home, we love to hike, cook, watch documentaries, play with legos, play games, and spend time with friends and family. We have a very open relationship with Kellom’s birth family, and would hope for the same type of relationship this time around. Almost every night, Kellom prays for a baby and two great danes. We’re not so sure about the great danes, but we are ready to open up our home and hearts to a new baby through the miracle of adoption. We would love to walk this journey with you, and we will be praying for you as you make difficult decisions in the coming days. Thanks for spending some time with us today.
Jamie, Trevor, and Kellom
