Searching for Our New Love

If you have found this website and you are considering putting your unborn baby up for adoption, we are praying for you! We know this is a very difficult situation for you, and we will try to be sensitive to your needs.

We are Keith and Judy Ross and are looking to give your child a loving, Christian home.

Keith is an Air Force Captain, Communications Officer, stationed at Kapaun Air Base, Germany. He has been in the military for 14 years, 9 of which he was enlisted. He is a deacon at Faith Baptist Church, serves as a Sunday School teacher, and an AWANA leader.

Judy is a registered nurse by trade, but is currently staying home with our youngest child. She teaches a ladies' Bible Study, leads a home play group, volunteers with Boy Scouts, and organizes and maintains our home.

We currently have three children and are no strangers to adoption. Our oldest is in college in Oklahoma, our middle child in high school at Kaiserslautern, and our youngest is three years old. Our two older children were born to us and our youngest was adopted in 2007 at the age of 10 months from China. We are an extremely close-knit family. We share everything together!

We have a large extended family with grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Our newest addition will have plenty of family who will love and help nurture him or her.We welcome your questions and comments.

We would be happy to share more information to an interested birthmother. Please feel free to contact us any time day or night!

Questions answered...we hope

Some questions we have already heard from others:

Are you willing to adopt a child or only a newborn?
We would be willing to adopt a child under 3 so as not to disrupt the "birth" order of our children.

Are you looking for a boy or girl?
We are looking for a child - we have no preference on gender.

What about race/ethnicity?
We are already a "trans-racial" family, having one child from China and are open to any race/ethnicity.

Can you adopt a child from Germany?
Any child we adopt has to have a US citizen birthmother. The Hague treaty prevents us from adopting internationally without going through an international adoption agency. Although we have done that before, we do not feel that calling for us right now. If there is a US Citizen who gives birth in Germany, or anywhere in Europe for that matter, we are eligible to adopt that baby.

Can you adopt a child in the US while you are stationed in Germany?
Yes! Once the child is born, we would be given a special power of attorney and a special type of passport that would allow us to bring the child back to Germany until we would return to Oklahoma to finalize the adoption.

Why do you want to adopt when you already have three kids?
God has given us the desire and resources to care for children that we cannot give birth to ourselves, so we feel adoption is the perfect route for us. We feel led by God to add to our family and adoption is the way that we feel He has chosen for us to do that.

We hope that answers any questions that you might have.
