Give and Take

First we swapped photos. Then we swapped basic life info.

So more about me...I grew up in a very small town in Alberta. My parents weren't able to have bio kids, so they were thrilled to adopt me. They are now retired to BC. I'm an only child. They visit us often and always ask about future grandkids :)

I met Camille in 2005, and we had a brief relationship for about 4-5 months. (...)

I moved to Edmonton for university and met Nick. So here we stayed!

Blessings,
Haley

Hi Haley,

It nice to learn a bit more about you. Small towns probably have equal amounts of positive and negative aspects as far as growing up goes.

I grew up in Edmonton a few km from where Camille lived (sad to hear your contact with her was maybe not the best timing). I suppose the best way to describe me would be an average latch key kid from a single parent family; a little tougher of an upbringing than I would want for my kids, but there's no doubt its helped me be a better adult. I've been very fortunate to have been with the same company for 21 years, and have had many different roles in various divisions across Western Canada. Right now I am leading the continuous improvement efforts for the company across North America, it's a bit of travel, but it's a lot of fun and very challenging!

Thank you for contacting me (us), its nice to get to know you and learn about who you are.

Have a terrific day!

Kevin


As much info as I write, that's what I get back. It seems so hard to share much in the emails because I'm still holding back, still trying to protect myself.

  1. I am very happy for you Haley. Also very glad you found my blog about Randy and his birth son. Your journey sounds very much like theirs. Brandon has often asked me on Facebook chat "...how do you tell someone about 27 yrs of your life?.."

    You don't there isn't any rush. The questions will come and layers, like an onion will be revealed. I love your philosophy on having four fathers and Kevins take on letting you take the direction, lead, and speed. This is very important and very admirable. Looking forward to reading more and God Bless.
