Dear Birthparent(s),

Thank you for taking the time to read our letter to you. We are Kevin and Ashley Hayes and we live in Johnstown, CO. We are both in our late 20s and met when we were in college. We have been together for 11 years, and married for five. Since the beginning of our relationship we have talked about the day we would become parents. We discussed that one day we would adopt, and through our path of infertility, we have found that adoption is truly a part of our journey.

Ashley was raised in Goddard, KS and is the youngest of three children. She has always had a dream of having a large family. Ashley enjoys hiking, fishing, paddle boarding, rock climbing, hunting, camping, CrossFit, and spending days off with Kevin and their pets. If the weather does not allow for an outdoor adventure, Ashley enjoys knitting, reading a book, baking or cuddled up on the couch watching movies. Ashley currently works for an engineering firm, while she works towards her Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Counseling.

Kevin was born and raised in Eureka, KS and is the second youngest of four siblings. Kevin was raised in a ranch/farming community which instilled his hard work ethic and values. Kevin enjoys fly fishing, tying flies, camping, hiking, hunting, rock climbing, paddle boarding, and spending time with Ashley, family and friends. Kevin also is a wizard in the kitchen and enjoys learning new things. Kevin is currently a flight paramedic in northern Colorado.

We have three dogs and a cat. Nala is a Border/Collie husky and is smart and loving. Diesel is a Doberman Pincher who always wants to be near you. Zink is our Yellow lab, he loves to give kisses and be wherever Kevin is. Rocky is our tabby cat and loves to cuddle and go on daily adventures outside. They have been around children of ages and have proven to us that they would do amazing around some human siblings.

We look forward to the days where our family is growing and be surrounded by friends and family. admire you for your strength through this process, and hope that we can be a part of your journey. Thank you for taking the time to read about us and possibly consider us.

Kevin and Ashley
