Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about us. Our names are Craig and Kristin. We have been married since 2008 and our daughter, Ruby, was born in 2010.
First of all, we would like to thank you for your consideration. We can’t begin to understand what you are going through, but we do understand that your decision is not an easy one and we are thrilled to even be considered!
We laugh every time we tell the story of how we met. We were actually set up on a blind date by our moms. We attended the same church off and on for over 20 years and knew the same people and never connected until our moms set us up. I guess mom usually DOES know best!
We are very close-knit with family literally around the corner. Family is and has always been very important to us. We see most of our family at least once a week for church, family get-togethers or the occasional dinner.
We have always wanted a big family and discussed the possibility of adoption when we were dating. We have undergone several fertility treatments and we were blessed with our daughter. After a miscarriage and several more fertility treatments, we decided it was time to go with our hearts and pursue adoption. We talk with our daughter all the time about welcoming another child into our family and she is so excited to be a big sister.
We try to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle. Craig has participated in several triathlons, enjoys mountain bike riding and playing pool. Kristin is very active as well and has participated in marathons and half marathons. In the summer, we spend most of our time playing in the pool and having family and friends over for a barbecue. We also love going to amusement parks and baseball games. Needless to say, we are a very active family and like to do anything where we can be outside.
We love to be silly and embarrass our daughter with our (lacking) dancing and singing skills. One of our favorite traditions is to dress up in our matching pajamas every Christmas. It’s something we look forward to every year. Even though we spend a lot of time outside, we love hanging out at home. We spend time together playing board games, doing puzzles and most weekends, we have a “Family Movie Night” where our daughter usually gets to choose the movie.
We are thrilled to be considered and you can rest assured that your child will grow up in a happy, loving home.
Craig and Kristin
