A Letter from Kevin & Clorisa
We are a family of five and we are so excited to have this opportunity to show you a snippet of our lives! We are a blended Christian family who loves to travel and provide memorable experiences for our children. Some of our favorite things include football, great food, and coaching our children in their various sporting activities.
We met at the waterpark where Clorisa works and became great friends before we began dating. We have been married for close to 6 years. Due to medical issues a few years back Clorisa is no longer able to have biological children. We looked at different options, and through prayer, we feel that God is guiding us in the direction of adoption.
We are a fun loving couple who enjoy many of the same activities! We both love being active outdoors, watching movies, family game nights, and traveling.
When I first met Clorisa the thing that stood out the most was her strength, stability, and courage in raising her daughter, Chloe, by herself. I didn’t realize her full courage until Clorisa went head to head with a medical issue and won. Clorisa instills that same strength in our children. She’s a super mom by any definition. She encourages our children to be very active in sports and school and makes time for them all. One of Clorisa’s favorite things to do is cook! I’ve watched her throw stuff together, and it turns out delicious every time. In nearly six years of marriage, she has yet to make a meal I don’t like. She also enjoys reading, playing softball, and sneaking in some TV time after all the kids are in bed.
I love how calm and relaxed Kevin is about life in general. He loves to relax with friends and family and doing activities like fishing and hanging out BBQing in the backyard while our children play. Kevin is an amazing father to our children! I love to watch him from our kitchen window while he is outside with them. While he sits and watches, the look on his face shows such peacefulness and the moments when he cracks a smile at something they’ve done or said makes me fall more in love every time. Relaxed, honest, and supportive would be my top 3 words to describe him! Kevin enjoys hunting, fishing, watching football, and gardening.
We live in a small town in Texas. Our home is located just around the corner from the school and is in a family-friendly neighborhood with so many children. There is an open lot across from our home that we play softball, football, and kickball with our children in. One of our favorite things about our home is the backyard! It has large trees that offer shade. We love to relax in the hammock in the backyard while the kids play on the trampoline and tire swing and look forward to welcoming your child into our family.
Our three children, Chloe, Jack and Haley are over the moon excited about adopting a baby brother or sister. They all regularly ask us if we have been chosen yet and pray nightly with us as well as you for continued guidance and strength on this journey.
Kevin’s parents live 15 minutes away, and we get together often for BBQing and relaxing. Clorisa has a small blended family that is relatively spread out, but everyone keeps in touch. We are surrounded by so many great friends and family members who are so excited and supportive of our adoption journey.
We have big family gatherings every year for Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas at the family farm. We all have so much fun when we build a giant bonfire and roast marshmallows for s’mores while sharing fun memories around the fire.
We promise to love your child unconditionally and will devote our lives to providing him or her with all the love, security, and joy we can possibly give. We are open to your child knowing where he or she comes from and we would love for you to be a part of their life if you are comfortable. Your child will be loved beyond measure by us, our families, and our friends and he or she will always know the love you have for him or her.

We are both Catholic. We enjoy going to Mass every Sunday and raising our children to put God first in all that we do. We do our best to pray together every night as a family. During our nightly prayers, each family member prays for someone else's needs, something we are thankful for, and something we would like help with. You are regularly part of that nightly prayer by us as well as our children.
Our small Texas has some of the friendliest supportive people we have ever met. Our home is located in the part of town that is known for trick-or-treating! Every year hundreds of children visit our home as one of the many stops to fill up their candy bins. It’s such a fun time for our family to have friends and family over. The kids love seeing all their friends stop by after we walk around the block for them of course!
|Our Music Interst|
We both love music! Clorisa secretly jams out on her commute to work most mornings! From country classics to hip-hop and gospel music, you just never know what will play when you listen to her playlist. Kevin loves Texas country and old school rock and roll. He even played in a band while in college for a short time!
Chloe, 11, is our creative, speak her mind kiddo. She enjoys softball, basketball, and competitive cheer. Chloe is a big help in the kitchen when Clorisa is cooking and loves creating new deserts!
Jack, 8, has been a part of our lives since he was born and while he is legally our nephew we love him so deeply and couldn’t imagine our lives without his bright smile and kind heart. He loves sports and gets so excited when Kevin is able to be one of his coaches for football and basketball.
Hailey, 4, is our life loving sweetheart. She is a helper by nature and next to us is the most excited about becoming a big sister and helping with your baby. Haley enjoys coloring, reading stories with Kevin, and secret late night snuggles with Clorisa!
