dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

Thank you for taking the time to read our profile to get to know us a little. We know your decision to pursue adoption for your child is an extremely sensitive and difficult one. We think you are very brave and truly have the best interest of your child at heart. We want to wish you the best feelings and peace of mind as you make this decision for your child.

If you choose us as parents for your child, we promise to love this child with every fiber of our being. We can already picture what it will be like adding a stroller to our walks with the dogs, a car seat to our road trips, a highchair at our table, and another Christmas stocking over the fireplace. We promise to teach good values and manners and to raise a child who knows what it means to be a good person. Kris cannot wait to have a little chef following him around in the kitchen. We know this child will be surrounded by laughter and smiles, a great family support system, and the best dads in the world.

We cannot begin to tell you how excited we are to grow our family through adoption. It is something we have put serious thought into for quite some time now. We want to thank you again for taking the time to read about us. We cannot express enough gratitude for you considering us for this wonderful, life changing opportunity.

Sincerely,
Kris and Alex

We can already picture what it will be like adding a stroller to our walks with the dogs, a car seat to our road trips, a highchair at our table, and another Christmas stocking over the fireplace.

About Us

We are Kris and Alex. We are married and have been together going on eleven years. We cannot wait to grow our family. We are a very fun and outgoing couple who love to travel and see the beauty around the world. We enjoy finding new local restaurants, throwing cookout parties, fireside chats, movie nights and popcorn, and visiting with family and friends. We have developed quite a passion for gardening and plants. We are extremely fortunate to live in a beautiful community with so many amenities and activities right at our fingertips. We both have full-time jobs with coordinated time off so we can spend weekends together. Kris works with his father in their family auction business. Our dogs go to work with Kris every day and love all the car ride time. Alex works in a retail pharmacy located super close to home.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a beautiful home located in a quiet golf course community with lots of trees and water. It is great for walking our dogs, Harley and Iris. We also have a cat, Trixie. There is an abundance of wildlife right in our backyard, making morning coffee extra special. We have a great circle of friendly neighbors and kids. We have a fantastic school system, with the pre-k, elementary, middle, and high schools all located a few minutes from our house. Being located just south of the city allows us the convenience of visiting the zoo, parks, museums, art galleries, gardens, and city restaurants while giving our neighborhood the cozy, secluded feel we love.

Our Extended Family

We are fortunate to have large families. Our families make up a diverse combination of backgrounds and situations that are special to us. We have family members who live close by and others who live in other states. Kris’s side of the family includes two younger sisters, mom and stepdad, dad and stepmom, three grandmothers, two grandfathers, fifteen cousins, and aunts and uncles. Alex’s side of the family includes two older sisters, mom and dad, two brothers-in-law, four nieces, one nephew, thirty cousins, and aunts and uncles.

We have enjoyed family beach trips, mountain retreats, ocean cruises, and road trips with our parents and siblings. Holidays and birthdays are a big deal. We have our holiday traditions with family now but cannot wait to start our own exciting traditions with our future child. Halloween and Christmas are our favorites, and we go all out!

What Led Us To Adoption

Having a child and growing our family has been a topic of conversation for several years now. We have researched the different options for having a child and have decided adoption is best for us. We feel we have so much to offer, and the idea that we could do life with a child is so exciting. We have cousins who are adopted and friends with adopted children. Before Kris’s younger sisters were born, adoption was being strongly considered by his parents. We want to be able to share our experiences with a child and provide the most loving and caring childhood possible.
