Dear Expectant Mother,
We are so excited to become parents! Since we are unable to have children of our own, we are so grateful for women like you who are brave and strong enough to allow someone else the chance to raise your baby. We want you to know that we will love your baby and raise him or her as our own flesh and blood. We both had many fantastic opportunities and experiences growing up with supportive and loving parents. We want to offer our children the same freedom to learn, experience, and explore the world.
We are sure this is a very scary and emotional time for you, and you have a very big decision to make in choosing who will raise your precious baby. We hope we can offer you peace of mind in knowing that we will always provide for and love your baby unconditionally as we go through life together as a family.
We know that raising children is both exciting and challenging. Just know that we are strong in our relationship with each other, and we have countless family and friends that are by our side and are equally ready for and excited about welcoming a baby into our family!
Our marriage is full of excitement, adventure, and the deepest love imaginable. We have traveled from Ireland to Japan. We have fished the Atlantic seas and hiked the Rocky Mountains. We love to travel and explore all of God’s beautiful creation. Casey has proudly been serving his country as an Army soldier for 15 years. His job titles have included being a medic and laboratory technician, and now he is the Station Commander of an Army recruiting office. Kristen has her own horse training business and works part-time at a small and large animal vet clinic as a veterinary assistant. Once we bring our baby home, she will become a full-time stay-at-home mom.
We live on a farm in the country! Our house is an open-concept, two-story, country-style home. The living room is large and perfect for gatherings with family and friends. We live on 5.5 acres in a small town where we raise horses, goats, chickens, a cat, and three amazing dogs! We spend most of our free time outdoors, whether it is fishing nearby, riding the horses in rodeos, playing in the yard with the dogs, or just sitting by the campfire looking at the stars. We can’t wait to share our farm life with our future children.
Our Extended Family
Both of us are beyond blessed with families that cherish being together and experiencing life as a close-knit family. We both grew up with family lives that included vacations, playing tons of board games, and gatherings with extended family for holidays and special occasions. Our families eagerly await the new arrival and are so supportive of our choice to adopt.
Casey’s family is from Germany, and so many home and holiday traditions have a German-American twist to them. One thing about Germans is they love to eat, so Thanksgiving is always a favorite. Their tables are packed with homemade German cuisine, and all the aunts, uncles, and cousins gather and eat.
Kristen grew up with most of her relatives all in one state, so weekday spaghetti dinners at Grandma’s house were a regular occurrence. Both of Kristen’s grandmothers and her mother all love to sew! Kristen used to sit on her grandma’s lap and sew clothes for her favorite dolls. She cannot wait to teach her children to sew, whether it is doll clothes for a girl or knight costumes for a boy.
What Led Us To Adoption
Family has always been so important to both of us! We have always longed for a family to share our adventures with. Our journey in growing our family has been tough as we have experienced multiple miscarriages. Each loss was heartbreaking but just made us want a family that much more! At a young age, Kristen had several friends who were adopted. Since she was 10 years old, she always said she wanted to adopt a child of her own. Casey has a younger brother who is adopted, and he is excited about being able to offer a loving family and home to a child of his own.
