dear expectant mother

We cannot express enough the amount of respect and admiration we have for you as you consider an adoption plan. You are incredibly strong, and we are here to help and support you in any way we can. We are humbled you would consider us to raise your child. Should you choose us, we would be eternally grateful, and we will share our gratitude and respect with your child. We will love them unconditionally and raise them with endless support and encouragement. We will help them navigate through life and help point out the lessons to be learned. We will help them to know and understand where they come from and celebrate their individuality, all the while learning our traditions and customs as a family. We will teach them to be of good character and values and about how important it is to just laugh and have fun.

We look forward to taking your child on road trips and vacations to the beach, getting dirty in the garden, or painting pictures to hang on our fridge. We cannot wait to read to them, tuck them in at night, and give them a home that feels safe and secure. Your child will have a good big brother to bond with as well. Jacob cannot wait to be a big brother, protector, and lifelong friend. He has so many ideas of things he would love to teach his sibling as a big brother. As a family, we look forward to seeing this bond grow!

Thank you for considering us to raise and love your child. We are so hopeful to begin this journey!

About Us

Our story began in 2014, when we met online. We spent the next few weeks talking on the phone and texting before we actually had our first date. The connection was almost instant, as though we had known each other for years, even though our personalities are opposite. Kristi is a self-described nerd who loves to read and learn. Ruth is creative and artistic and loves to build things with her hands. This is evident in our jobs too. Kristi is a revenue cycle manager in the healthcare field, working with spreadsheets and numbers all day. Ruth is an audio/visual production specialist and creates multimedia products. Ruth also spent 12 years in the U.S. Army. Together we bring out the best in each other. We really enjoy our time together and with our 13-year-old son, Jacob. As a family, we thrive in building each other up but also being silly together.

Our Home & Pets

We started building our two-story home in October 2015 and moved in March 2016. We took our time researching the best neighborhoods to raise a family in. Ultimately, we settled in a small gated community with a park across the street. We have a good-sized yard where our dogs love to run and play fetch. Our dogs, Captain and Flash, are the sweetest, most playful fur babies in the world. They will love and play with your child and bring a smile to their face. We look forward to taking your child on strolls through the neighborhood or playing with them in the backyard. For a weekend treat, we can envision taking a short ride to the local ice cream shop and indulging in an ice cream cone.

Our Extended Family

Our families are so excited as we begin our journey. Our parents and siblings have especially been excited and supportive of our decision to adopt. Our nieces and nephews are equally excited to have a new cousin. We both have been blessed to have been raised with close families, including aunts, uncles, and cousins. We grew up being close to our extended family and want to continue that tradition.

We enjoy hosting our families on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Nothing is better than having a house full of family and children to enjoy the holidays with. From cooking big meals and desserts to staying up late watching movies together or telling stories and laughing, these are the moments that fill our home with happiness. Aside from holidays, we try to visit family during the summer and long weekends. Kristi has family in other areas of the state, and Ruth has family in both Mexico and Illinois. Despite the distance, we maintain close ties to our families via video chats and phone calls. Our families are excited about the possibility of creating new memories with your child.

What Led Us To Adoption

We have always talked about having a family. Since we met, we have always imagined having a child together and growing our family. We have talked about different options, but adoption felt like the best option for us. To us, being able to love and raise a child together and provide a happy home is the greatest joy in the world.
