Inquire About This Family

Hello! Thank you so much for taking the time to learn about our family. We know that the decision ahead of you is not an easy one, however we want you to know that we care about you and are praying for you. Our hope is that you will feel God’s presence and guidance in your decision in the same way that we have felt Him in our decision to pursue adoption.

Our names are Kodey and Marie and we live in a small town in Indiana. We first met through mutual friends when we were in high school. We dated for five years, learning and growing with one another until we got married in 2013. We continually strive for God to be the center of our marriage and hope to grow our family in His love. Through some medical concerns and prayer, God has shown us adoption is the best way for this to happen.

About Kodey (by Marie)

Kodey works in the manufacturing field. He enjoys his job and is an incredibly hard worker. He is also kind and gentle.  He shows me this every day in his love for me and in his constant pursuit of God. For fun, he enjoys taking walks, playing video games, and reading comic books. I sometimes think he is just a big kid at heart! Even if that is the case, he is truly my best friend. He has been by my side through all of the ups and downs of life, every day giving me his dedication and support. I am so excited to see the way that he will show that same dedication and support to our children. He will be a great father.

About Marie (by Kodey)

Marie is a food service worker at our local hospital. She loves working there, but she especially loves the amazing people she works with. She likes playing board games, going on walks around the neighborhood, and being adventurous by trying new things and traveling to new places. Marie lights up around children, especially our new 10-month-old niece who we try to see as often as possible. She is also deeply passionate about her relationship with God. She demonstrates this by always making time to serve at our church in any way she can. She cooks, helps in the nursery, and even babysits our pastor’s kids! I love how excited she gets when she is able to help other people. It really shows her caring and kind-hearted spirit. Her care for others and her kindness make me confident that she will be a wonderful mother.

Our Community
We live in a small, quiet town in Indiana. It is the kind of town where everyone knows everyone, which is rare these days, and a big part of why we love living here. Some of our favorite things about our town are the county fair that comes every year and the summer concert series where we get to see and experience new local bands. There are also several parks in town that we love to explore with our dog. We can’t wait to take our kids to the parks to make friends with the other kids in the neighborhood! Our church community is a big part of our lives. We both serve in different roles at the church on a regular basis. Kodey runs the projector during our Sunday services and Marie helps with the babies in the nursery. Along with volunteering, we both love our Sunday school class. It is a great way for us to learn and grow in our spiritual lives together and with others in our church.

Our Families
Both of us come from big families and consider this a blessing in our lives. Like us, Kodey’s parents began their relationship when they were young. Even though they have been together for a long time, they still are growing and learning new things about each other. We hope to do the same thing in our relationship. They are the ones we look to as an example of a strong marriage. In Marie’s family, everyone is always welcome. We have learned what it looks like to love everyone, despite differences in each other’s lives. We hope to create a warm and welcoming home, just like the one we have with Marie’s family. Most importantly, our families support us and are so excited to be a part of our journey through adoption.

Thank you again for taking the time to read our profile. We hope you have a better understanding of who we are. We also hope you feel the love and support we have for you and for your child. Most importantly, we hope you know that God has a plan, and that you can trust Him. Our hearts and prayers are with you as you make this brave decision.

Thank you,
Kodey and Marie
