    Hello, we are Mike and Kim! Thank you for choosing to hear our story. We hope that it helps you learn more about us as prospective parents. 

    Like many couples today, our story began online. One evening, Kim was scrolling through profiles, holding her god-daughter on her lap, when she came across Mike’s profile. We connected and talked on the phone or via email for about a year before finally meeting. Mike says that he knew the moment they met that Kim was the one for him.

    Kim moved to Philadelphia to live with Mike 17 years ago and we started our life together. We bought a house and welcomed two dogs into our home before getting married in Las Vegas on October 31, 2011. We embraced Halloween by dressing as a zombie and dead bride! 

    After several years of trying to conceive, nothing has happened for us. However, we knew that deep down we were meant to become parents. So, we began researching adoption and made it our priority. We can't wait to become parents and welcome a beautiful child into our hearts and home.

    Financial Support

    Expectant mothers who choose to make an adoption plan may qualify for some level of financial assistance during their pregnancy. However, each person's situation and specific needs are different. Your adoption social worker can help you determine what level of assistance you qualify for and deserve. Many expectant mothers qualify for financial assistance to cover basic pregnancy and living expenses, including but not limited to - transportation reimbursement, utility assistance for phone, water, and electricity/gas, maternity clothing and supplements, etc.

    Shepards Pie Dinner

    Shepards pie and bisquits for dinner tonight.  I mixed fresh sweet potatoes with packaged potatoes, along with impossible burger and veggies.  I love cooking for my hubby.  I have also been cooking for the pups.  Since Junior was diagnosed with diabetes before Christmas, they both get cooked food.

    Fun and Healthy food for dinner (this was last weeks dinner)

    July 20, 2021

    I love cooking for my family.  Mike is a vegetarian and I have adapted several meals so he can eat them.  This is Impossible burger meatloaf with roasted veggies and corn.  I try to cook on my days off and make sure that there is a couple of days of food for us to eat. I would love to show my little one all of the ins and outs of cooking.

    One of my favorite past times is baking.  At one point in my life, a couple years ago, I had my own online cookie business.  Since getting a new job, where I make more money, baking has now become a favorite time.  I love baking for friends and family and during the holidays I bake cookies for the neighbors as gifts.

    Fun with matching outfits

    Here's my niece Dottie modelling her new shirt Mike and I sent her and her sister Sylvia.  I bought a onesie for our new little one to match and get a family picture.  The girls loved their shirts and I thought it was a fun idea because they make music and sing with their dad.  I have several recorded shorts that they have done, and its awesome.

    As you can see, I have been doing alot of cooking lately.  This is a tomato salad, buttered noodles and Beyond Brats.  Mike is a vegetarian and has been for over 20 years.  I am about 95%, but still love to eat chicken and fish.  I did have vacation last week, but stayed home to get things taken care of around the house.  I love to cook and bake and when my nieces were younger we did alot of cooking together in the kitchen with each other.  I actually stayed...

I would love to think that I had something to do with that, but her dad is also a chef, so, maybe both of us influenced her.

    Dinner tonight

    June 15, 2021

    Yesterday I put together homemade tomato and basil soup that we had for dinner this evening.  I bought panini bread for grilled cheese and it came out better than ever.  It was really nice that I could make an awesome dinner for Mike and I.  I also love to cook on my days off from work and be able to feed us all through the week.  And on those odd occasions I get to feed some friends too.  During this whole pandemic, we haven't had anyone over to our house...

    June 9th, 2021– 4th day of my staycation

    June 9, 2021

    So, I've been on vacation since Sunday.  I thought about going to my parents for a few days, but then decided that I needed to take care of things here around the house.  You know, those things that get pushed to the side because you work all week and have 2 days off.  Those bags of clothes that need to go to the Goodwill or the stuff in the basement that needs to be thrown out,  So, thats been my mission along with getting myself back into some art projects.

    Baked Ziti

    May 12, 2021

    After a hard day at work, I made dinner for Mike.  It was my first time making baked ziti.  I made it with Impossible burger because Mike is a vegetarian and doesn't eat any meat at all.  It was the bomb.  When I cook or bake for our family, I also love to share with my extended family, or co-workers.  It made me so happy to be able to make a great meal that everyone loves.  Baking and cooking are important to our family.  I used to have my nieces...

    Tacos and Pizza

We have another one for our future child, so he/she can get a kick outta taco night.  We have an extra dino that we are saving for the lucky child that will grace our family.  As you can see, Mike is a big child at heart.

    This evening I caught myself getting ready for my parents visit the day after Mother's Day.  I talked to my mom today and asked her if her or my dad would like anything special when they come to visit. Thats kinda my thing, I want to make them feel special when they come and visit.  I mean really, its my way of thanking them for all the great years of taking care of me. So, I made home made alfredo sauce with mushrooms and spinach that will be the topping of my flatbread pizzas.  There was even talk of a peach pie or peach cobbler with a side of vanilla icecream.  The cobbler will probably be the one I decide to make because, quite honestly, its easier.  I'll have to drop a photo when I make it.  Cooking and baking are an important part in my life.  When I am off, I make and prepare dinner for Mike and I for the week.

    Peach Cobbler for Mother’s day dinner

    My mom loves peaches.  I made her a peach and blueberry cobbler for dessert for her Mother's Day dinner.  I love that I can share my love of cooking and baking with my family.  It was topped with vanilla ice cream, of course.  Nothing like a cobbler to end a great dinner.  I love cooking and baking and when I get the opportunity to share it with others it makes it more special.

    I have to admit, its been a hard year with the pandemic.  I have been really busy at work, since I am considered an essential worker, which leads me a limited time to create art.  Its been a while since I have been able to even think of wanting to create something, but recently, I have been coming up with some ideas I hope to bring to life.
