Featured Family – Kevin and Clorisa
From time to time, we like to spotlight Catholic adoptive families. We’d like you to meet Kevin and Clorisa, a hopeful adoptive couple living in Texas. We encourage you to read about their life in their own words. Here is what they have to say:
We are a fun-loving, blended Catholic adoptive family with three children. We live every day to the fullest embracing life while creating lasting memories with our large family and wonderful friends. We look forward to learning about you and your hopes and dreams for your child. We are so excited to have this opportunity to show you a snippet of our lives!
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, Catholic couple who enjoy many of the same activities! We both love being active outdoors, watching movies, family game nights, and traveling.
Meet Clorisa (by Kevin)
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. Our Catholic faith is important to us. We will share our Catholic faith with your child.
Meet Kevin (by Clorisa)
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.
Kevin’s parents live 15 minutes away, and we get together for BBQing and relaxing. Clorisa has a small blended family that is relatively spread out, but everyone keeps in touch. We are surrounded by sp 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 look forward to adopting a child to join our family.
