Hi! We're Hanne & Kevin, an Iowa-based couple married for 5+ years and now looking to expand our family through adoption. We're both passionate about our jobs, and we've lived in NYC, DC, and Iowa, as well as traveled the world. As a couple, I'd say we're curious learners, communicative partners, and well-rounded in what we care about. We love our families dearly and want to offer the kind of upbringing we both received -- based on support, inclusion, and opportunity -- to a little one.
I grew up in Iowa, but moved to DC as soon as I could & fell in love with trying to make the world a better place, first through government and now in a nonprofit I help run. I hold a Masters in International Affairs from Georgetown, and believe education is important. However, I know eduction takes many forms, and my goal is simply to raise kids who like to learn from the world around them. I bake when I'm stressed and cook when I'm happy, so I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Other hobbies include traveling, reading, playing the cello, singing (badly) along with the radio while driving, and watching junk tv shows. I would love to be a mom.
Kevin grew up the oldest brother of 3 sisters, just outside of DC in Virginia. An Eagle Scout, he still has a strong moral code but cannot camp to save his life. Kevin is an investment director at a state university, and has been recognized as an industry 'up & comer'. Kevin loves photography, golf (playing), hockey & baseball (watching), playing with our dog, and planning surprises for people. He's taken up woodworking in the garage, and the entire family is benefiting from custom coffee tables, bath trays, and coat racks. His father passed from cancer, making Kevin a strong advocate for men's health and a big believer in giving back. His laugh is infectious.
