dear expectant mother

Dear Expectant Mother,

We have so much respect for you and empathize with the brave choice you are making for your child. We can only imagine how difficult this decision must be, and we’re so grateful to you for considering us to raise and nurture your baby.

With your brave choice, your baby will grow up in a safe and secure home full of love, fun, and laughter, where they will be encouraged to be themselves and follow their dreams. They will be taught the value of kindness and empathy toward others, the importance of family and education, and the resiliency to overcome challenges. We want to raise a child who has a good sense of who they are, what they stand for, and where they are going in life. We will teach them to value honesty and integrity and to speak out when something is wrong. We will encourage them to develop their own talents and interests and will support them as they find their way in the world.

We look forward to growing our family and being a part of every milestone, from learning to walk and read to accepting a diploma for their college graduation. We will be there to support them through every hardship as well as to support their decisions and cheer them on as they discover passions and grow into adulthood.
​​
We wish you peace of mind and goodwill in making your decision. Thank you so much for getting to know and consider us!

About Us

We have been together for five years and married for three. We both work in the banking world, with Kristen working in business banking and Brian working in brokerage. We are a fun and outgoing couple but also enjoy our peaceful time together. We love exploring new restaurants, traveling, hiking, cuddling and reading on the couch together. or watching a Netflix show, as well as all things Disney. We even celebrated our honeymoon at Disney World in 2019. We both enjoy spending time with our families and take a yearly beach trip in the summer with them. We like attending musicals and sporting events and getting friends and family together for game nights. Kristen enjoys cooking and researching new recipes, gardening, knitting, and DIY projects around the house and yard. Brian enjoys reading books about history, working on building his computer, and learning more French.

Our Home & Pets

Our home is a three-bedroom, ranch-style house in a very quiet, family-friendly community with a good school district, in the suburbs of North Carolina. We love living here. We get the best of both worlds, feeling like we are in the country while driving home and then having a city about 15 minutes away with lots of great restaurants and amenities. We are within walking distance of the community playground and dog park, which our small 12-year-old dog, Dodger, loves visiting during his walks around the neighborhood. Dodger is a mix of several breeds, loyal, lovable, and sweet with children, and he loves going with us on our travels.

Our Extended Family

Kristen was originally from California, but North Carolina has become her home over the past decade. Her mom, brother and his fiance, infant nephew, aunt, and grandmother all moved to North Carolina within a five-year time frame of each other to be closer to each other. We all live within one to two hours of each other and try to get together often for dinners and celebrating birthdays and holidays. Her younger half-sister, her dad, and his wife moved to Hawaii several years ago but are only a phone call away, and Kristen still has a few aunts, uncles, and cousins who live on the West Coast as well.

Brian was born and raised in North Carolina with his parents and younger sister, who welcomed a daughter of her own last year. His cousins, aunt, and uncle live in South Carolina. We get together with his parents, his sister and her husband, and their infant daughter for birthdays, holidays, and the annual family beach trip for a fun and relaxing week in the summer.

All of our family members are so happy and excited about our plans to adopt and add to this loving family!

What Led Us To Adoption

We met about the way most couples meet now, online, and have been married for three years. We are so excited about adding a little one to our family! We were led to adoption after a long and tough road with infertility but also had discussed adoption when we first started planning for a family. Adoption has given us renewed hope for starting our family and the next chapter of our lives. We feel like we have so much love to give and would be honored and privileged to provide that love to a child via adoption.
