Erin, Jeff & Riley Kersh

Livermore, CA

Warm regards from Livermore, California. We are a close family who enjoys messy art projects, riding our bikes together, and making s'mores by the lake. Those things will be even more fun with a family of four! We chose open adoption because we want our child to know about the love that brought our family together. We hope the love and support we have to offer you and your baby come shining through.

Day to Day

Erin loves being a stay-at-home momma. She is happy to spend her days going to the park, building LEGO cities, and using her teaching background to be an integral part of Riley’s day-to-day development. Jeff is a licensed structural engineer. He has enjoyed working at the same company since he graduated from college. We are fortunate that his job allows him the flexibility to chaperone school field trips and be home for swimming lessons. Riley is our resident daredevil and little momma. She loves being outdoors as much as she loves giving her babies check-ups. We realized when Riley was only 18 months old that she is a born nurturer. Erin was taking care of our nephew and Riley instantly assumed the role of momma’s little helper. We can’t wait to see Riley’s face when she meets her sister or brother for the first time!

How We Play

For as long as she can remember, Erin has enjoyed doing anything creative. She is known in our family for baking the best birthday cakes, creating awesome art projects, and her obsession with Star Wars. She keeps up our family scrapbooks, so we can pass our memories onto our children. One day, Erin hopes to channel her love of writing and drawing into a children’s book. The best part of Jeff’s day is being greeted at the door by his sidekick, Riley. He is known in our family for creating elaborate multi-colored pancake designs, his passion for playing games, and reading extra bedtime stories. One of Jeff’s favorite pastimes is basketball and he has been playing since high school. Jeff looks forward to shooting hoops with both of our children; his goal is to shoot a free throw when he is 100 years old.

The Story of Us

We met in San Luis Obispo where Jeff was a resident advisor in Erin’s freshmen dorm. Erin was studying architecture and Jeff was studying engineering, so we had a lot in common from the beginning. We went on motorcycle rides, hung out at the beach, and discovered we love cooking together. After graduation, we moved back to the Bay Area to settle down close to our families. We have been married for more than eleven years and are having as much fun as we did back then. Riley brightened our lives over seven years ago and not a week goes by without her asking to be a big sister. We can’t wait for the day that we can tell her that our dream is coming true. It is going to be an amazing feeling to hold them both in our arms. Our family and friends are an integral part of our lives. Not a week goes by that we don’t see Erin’s parents or sister’s family, who are both a mere bike ride away. We enjoy doing everything together, from going camping to celebrating accomplishments. Jeff’s parents live a short drive away and we see them on a regular basis, too. We also consider our best friends to be family. In spite of the miles between some of us, we remain involved in each other’s lives via phone, e-mail, video chat, care packages, and annual visits. Our loved ones near and far are excited about welcoming a new baby. They all have a lot of love to give and are already asking to babysit, have play dates, and help in any way they can.
