Dear Expectant Mother,

We thank you for taking the time to learn about us as you make this tough decision. We cannot fathom the difficulties you are facing, but we know that you are being selfless and courageous. We know in our hearts that you want the best possible life for your child, and we would love to provide that for them. If you choose to entrust us with your child, we promise to unconditionally love and support them. We will provide them with a home and a family full of love, laughter, support and adventure.

We met through a mutual friend in 2010 and started dating in 2012. We immediately got along, realizing that we had many similarities in both demeanor and interests. Our third date was a 1,200 mile road trip to see the Grand Canyon and we had an amazing time. After being together for five wonderful years, we decided to get married in Las Vegas on our way home from a hiking trip in Southern Utah in 2017. Since the beginning of our relationship, we have enjoyed traveling and visiting the national parks. We enjoy the outdoors, hiking and seeing all the beauty this country has to offer. As a couple, we also enjoy cooking together, taking a drive in Rob’s classic car and just being together as a family. Our home has always included pets and we currently have four cats, two of which were inherited from other family members. We believe that having animals in a house while growing up brings joy to a child’s life.

Kristin is a math teacher and has always enjoyed working with children. The best part of her day is seeing the smile on a student’s face when they learn something new. When she is not teaching, Kristin enjoys traveling, reading, crocheting, cooking, gardening and puzzles. Rob works as an environmental regulator and is passionate about keeping the community waterways clean. Rob’s hobbies include fishing, traveling, working on classic cars, gardening and cooking.

On our journey to grow our family, we have encountered infertility and miscarriages. While this part of our journey was heartbreaking, we knew we could not let it stop us from having a child. This path has led us to adoption, with the knowledge that there is a brave woman out there, looking for the right home for her child. We dream of the future with a child that we can love with all our hearts. We look forward to precious little moments like reading a book together, seeing our child smile and laugh, seeing them walk for the first time and learning to ride a bike.

If you choose us to raise your child, know that we would provide them with love, support, guidance and compassion. We will nurture their interests and teach them about the world. Part of their world will be knowing their birth story. It is important to us to have our child know about the loving woman who allowed us to have a family.

We would be honored to give your child a loving home. If you feel that a connection between us is possible, we would love to hear from you so that we can get to know each other.

With love and admiration,
Kristin and Rob

Q&A

Tell us about your home and neighborhood.

Our home is a spacious 3-bedroom house with lots of space for a child to play and grow. Our backyard has a vegetable garden where we plant tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries and melons. We are looking forward to teaching your child to work in the soil and watch their plants grow. There is also a nice grassy area and a play structure in our backyard for them to enjoy. Our house is in a suburban town in Northern California. Our neighborhood has a creek path nearby with beautiful trees, water, ducks, fish and occasionally river otters and turtles. There is also a neighborhood Elementary school that we both went to as children. Our home is located within a half an hour of the ocean and the forest, which would give your child many opportunities to be around and explore nature.

Do you have pets? If so, tell us about them.

We have four cats and they all have their own personalities. Bally is a big calico who loves to be pet, including belly rubs. Nubb is our other calico who loves attention and sitting in laps. Trinity is an energetic, long-haired gray that used to belong to Kristin’s grandmother. Spike, formerly Rob’s sister’s cat, is our newest addition and is a spunky, young black cat who loves to play and run around. We feel that our cats bring positive energy to our house and will make wonderful playmates for our future child.

What do you hope to teach your child(ren)?

Education is very important to both of us, and we are both looking forward to helping our child learn from an early age. This includes instilling the love of reading, math, science, art, and music. Our personal passions include baking, cars and gardening, and it is our wish to include a child in these hobbies. We also hope to teach our child to love the outdoors as we travel to National Parks and go to local parks. We will also teach our child to be a good person and to be kind and compassionate.

What will you tell your child about his or her birthmom?

We believe that it is important for a child to know their origin story. We would like our child to know that their birth mother loves them and wants the best possible life for them. Our child will know that it was because of their birthmother’s selfless act that we were able to be a family. We are looking forward to getting to know our child’s birthmother so that we can share as much information as she would like.

When you close your eyes and see yourself holding your precious baby in your arms, what are your thoughts regarding his or her birth mother?

We are grateful that she chose us to love her child. We are thankful for her giving us the gift of becoming parents. The birthmother of our child will always be a part of our family story and our child's identity, so we will always admire and respect her.
