dear expectant mother

Hello from Utah!

We believe adoption is one of the highest expressions of LOVE, and we know that firsthand. We are honored to be the parents of our beautiful daughter, Jersey, made possible through adoption. She has enriched our lives beyond measure. We know this would not have been possible without a mother, such as yourself, being dedicated to finding loving parents and a bright future for their child. Your selfless love, courage, and conviction inspire us every day.

Because the adoption decision does not occur in a vacuum, other family members outside of the birthparents can be deeply affected. That is why we currently maintain communication with Jersey’s biological grandma and extended family and know the peace it brings to them. Regardless of the level of involvement you choose, we will make certain your child will always know the abundance of love you carry for him or her.

As you navigate the adoption process, trust yourself. We know you are likely searching for the “perfect family” for your child. We may offer what you envision for your child’s future. We promise your child will thrive, feel safe, feel loved, and be happy in our family. We want to provide you with an honest look into our lives so that you can determine if we are that perfect fit.

Thank you for allowing us to show you who we are and how honored we would be to be parents to your child.

Love,
Krista and Kendra

About Us

Love, strength, determination, support, and focus are characteristics that best describe us as a couple. These factors have led to a happy and thriving marriage of over 14 years and the successful adoption of our seven-year-old daughter, Jersey. Making certain Jersey is provided for both emotionally and financially is of utmost importance to us, and we have accomplished that. Kendra is a stay-at-home mom, and Krista maintains a financially solid management position as a director of business development in the healthcare industry. We are also able to provide our daughter with educational and recreational opportunities to expand her talents and interests. Warning to future Olympians: Jersey can skate! Lastly and most importantly, teaching our daughter to love and respect others is what we strive to model each day.

Our Home & Pets

We reside in a spacious home with a large backyard in suburban Utah. Our home is the center for extended family gatherings, including Fourth of July barbecues and birthday party extravaganzas. We chose to live in a kid-friendly neighborhood with biking/hiking trails and large parks. We have endless outdoor adventures! We love animals and currently have three dogs and two cats. Not only does Jersey love the animals but she is learning the responsibilities associated with being a pet owner. Spending quality time as a family and creating family memories is very important to us. Our regular family activities include morning walks, board games, movie nights, schoolwork, bike riding, and bedtime stories.

Our Extended Family

We have a very large and diverse extended family spanning several generations. Between the two of us, we have 16 siblings. We know the power of love and support that can be generated by these bonds. We are there for each other in times of joy and need. We spend many occasions together making memories and fostering our family traditions. Whether we are camping, celebrating birthdays, sitting down to Sunday family dinners, or attending each other’s kid’s performances, we always find great pleasure in simply being together.

We also believe in the richness that being part of a large extended family can provide for a child. The memories created are priceless, and Jersey is always so excited when she knows she will be getting together with her cousins or going to visit her great-grandma. Every child who comes into our extended family is seen as a blessing and welcomed with open arms. Our lives have been enriched by these interactions and bonds, and we cannot wait to share the richness of our family relationships and traditions with another child.

What Led Us To Adoption

We believe every child deserves to feel loved, safe, and respected. We believe loving a child is not based on biology. It is based on love that comes from the heart and the desire to nurture another human being. We knew we could provide a home for a child built on that foundation. We have already been blessed once as a result of the adoption process. Raising Jersey has been the greatest honor and most meaningful experience of our lives. It has given us a profound sense of purpose and devotion. It is from this place of love, understanding, and experience that we seek to add to our family.
