Waiting Parents: Neil and Katy

Hello, we are Neil and Katy. We are honored that you will consider us to be the adoptive parents of your precious baby. We are excited to grow our family through adoption. Additionally, we are already an Aunt and Uncle to our four-year-old niece and godparents to a few of our friends’ children. We have a fantastic network of family and friends eager to meet the newest member of our family. The adoption plan you are making for your child is an amazing confirmation of your selflessness and love. You are in our prayers as you embark on this journey.

We have been happily married for eleven years and have been together since our freshman year of college. We waited to tie the knot until we had both completed our master’s degrees. Katy works as an occupational therapist in a large hospital, and Neil is an architect for commercial projects. We spend much of our time walking our dog Bella to the lake, cooking, traveling, and spending time with family & friends. Neil’s hobbies include playing the guitar, photography, bicycling, grilling, or tackling home renovations projects with his Dad. Katy’s hobbies encompass playing piano, yoga, scrapbooking, and crafting. In our time together, we have traveled the globe, built stable careers, and now cannot wait to begin our new journey into parenthood. There is a big world out there, and we want our family to enjoy it together.

Neil about Katy

From the moment I met Katy, I knew my life would never be the same. I know how lucky I am that she chose me to be her husband. At this point in our lives, we have been together longer than we have been apart, and I can’t imagine doing life without her. We have embarked on some amazing adventure together, but this next adventure is perhaps the most exciting. Katy is very organized, kind, fun, attentive, protective, and nurturing. I know Katy will be a phenomenal Mom, and I can’t wait to start this next chapter of our lives together.

Katy about Neil

We met in theatre class our freshman year of college. I fell in love with Neil because of his genuine kindness, humor, and faith in God. Now we are married for eleven years, and I couldn’t be happier. I love sharing my day with him. He inspires me to push myself and grow. We are genuinely best friends and soul mates. Life always has ups and downs, but our marriage grows stronger. Neil is funny, generous, kindhearted, and loving. He will be an amazing father who will demonstrate endless love, compassion, and patience. I am excited to join him in our next life adventure.

Our community is created for families to enjoy outdoor parks, walking/biking trails, and exemplary schools. We enjoy walking along the greenbelt trails and experiencing Texas nature along the way. Throughout the year, our community is active with geese, pelicans, rabbits, and whitetail deer. We are also only a few houses down from a large playground with swings, slides, bridges, and tunnels. We love taking our four-year-old niece to the park, where she casts us as characters in her imaginative play castle or pirate ship. We know this will be a fantastic community to raise a child, and we cannot wait to share our world with them.
