McLeod Family

Nicholas & Kristin McLeod Family — Missouri

Our Family:

We are a calm loving family with big hearts and love animals. We have a small hobby farm. Two cows two goats a couple dogs and cats. Chickens and bunny rabbits and we can not forget our four fish.
We have four biological children. Some of their special needs are GERD, Pica, epilepsy, solar urticaria, and severe food allergies.

We live on a small hobby farm where animals become like family(therapy) pets. A typical day at home, Dad leaves for work mom is at home with the children. We make breakfast feed/play with the animals. Then we sit down to school lessons weather it be outside on the grass with the goats, or inside near the fireplace, upside down, okay we do that too. We use a Christian based home-school curriculum. After lunch its free time till dad gets home. Then evening chores, and making dinner together. After dinner its quietly reading books or watching a family movie before going off to bed. We take trips to grandparents, the zoo, Bass Pro Shops is a favorite, and camping. We also are involved in a family life center so lots of socialization with all age groups.

Our Desire to Adopt:

Due to medical reasons we can not have more children and we feel our family is incomplete. Our hearts are big. We have always wanted a large family. We are open to 0-6 year old children with moderate special needs. We are willing to offer support and/or counseling to Birth-Moms/Parents considering placing their child, yet are undecided, also other parents of special-needs children.
We are licensed foster and adoptive parents, and have a current Homestudy from the state.

Our Faith in Christ:

We study the King James Bible and are conservative Christians.

Dear Birth Mom/Parents:

We understand how difficult the many challenges can be when raising children with special needs. So many ups and downs. You make some progress and take two steps forward and one step back. Let us lean on each other. We are a large family, in a loving home with a large family support network. We live close to medical facilities and school support services, and other resources. We look forward to meeting you and hope we can be friends as we all help to raise good Christian children in Gods eyes. Our thoughts and prayers go with you on this journey we will take together. Blessings to you and yours, McLeod family In God whom we trust.
