Kristina & Adam

Dear Expectant Mother,

First, thank you for your strength and courage. Thank you for your miracle. And thank you for considering us as parents for your child.

We would never presume to know what you are going through and can only imagine some of the questions and uncertainties you may have. While we cannot know all the future holds, there are some things we do know. This is our promise to you:

Your child will live and grow in a home filled with smiles and laughter, singing and dancing, kindness and generosity. Your child will be part of a family. Your child will be raised to value honesty, integrity, hard work, and humility. Your child will be raised to be a good person. Your child will be given every opportunity to succeed and grow into the person they are meant to be. Your child will be supported and encouraged through successes, failures, and everything in between. Your child will want for nothing. Your child will be safe. Your child will have adventures big and small. Your child will be taught that mistakes are an opportunity to learn. Your child will be taught that life in all of its shapes, sizes, and shades is precious. Most of all, your child will be loved unconditionally and without question.

We cannot even begin to express our gratitude for you. We are humbled and awed by your courage and strength. Thank you, from the warmest places in our hearts.


About Us

contact

Kris works in a mental health hospital and is the assistant program director of the university’s psychiatry residency program. Adam is a pediatrician and is completing his military service at a base just outside of town. Our experience with these fields of medicine have definitely given us a unique perspective on parenting: balancing emotional, physical, and spiritual health while being able to soak up all the joy of childhood. At home, we can usually be found in the kitchen, cooking and singing (enthusiastically, if off-key) with our son. We love spending time together: snuggling up to watch Disney movies, having impromptu dance parties, or laughing at Adam’s “dad jokes.”


Our Home

contact

We live in a southern university city that prides itself on education, arts, food, and, of course, football! Our home is in an established neighborhood with mature pine and palm trees lining quiet streets. The kitchen is the heart of our home, and we spend time together eating dinner each evening, entertaining, or just hanging out. Our two rescue cats, Vice and Elf, love the sunroom and can most often be found lounging in there or snuggling in someone’s lap. One of our favorite areas of the house is our shaded backyard, which houses a small patio, a vegetable garden, and a large swing set.


Our Extended Family

contact

Some of our favorite traditions are with the little ones: eating dinner together every day and tucking in our son after bedtime stories every night. We celebrate the end of the week with
Friday night movies (pizza and popcorn included!) and dinner on the weekends with Kris’s parents. Kris is an only child, and her parents are awesome, so when they retired, they followed us to this city. Kris’s parents are a huge blessing and are an important part of our lives as well as our son’s.

Adam’s parents and brother live near the beach, a few hours away, but we are so fortunate to get to see them regularly. His sister has two young children, which has definitely fanned our son’s excitement about a sibling. He speaks so sweetly about how he will “teach the baby” everything about painting and Legos. We are absolutely sure that he will make a wonderful big brother.


What Led Us To Adoption

contact

Maybe it’s because Kris’s parents passed down their dream of adopting, or maybe it’s because Adam’s house was always open to the neighborhood kids. Although it’s hard to pinpoint the exact reason, we have always had adoption in our hearts, something we learned about each other while we were dating. Both of us are firm believers that biology does not define a family; love does. Love is love and people are people, and that’s all that matters. We don’t feel our family is done growing, and we can think of no higher privilege than to adopt.
