From us to you,
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time
to read about us and the life and opportunities that we would like to offer
your child. First of all, we admire the unconditional love that you have for
your child in considering the alternative of adoption. We want you to know that
if you choose us to raise your baby that we will love him or her so much and do
everything in our power to ensure their happiness and well being. There is
nothing that we pray for more in life than to love and raise a family together.
We absolutely love being a mommy and daddy to our two-year-old, adopted son
Michael, and cannot wait to have another child in our lives to love and
Just to tell you a bit about us: We met when I (Kristan) was
still in college. My dad actually introduced us to each other, and I
reluctantly went out on a “blind” date with him one weekend when I came home
from college. Obviously my dad knew best! We talked every day after that date
and Mike started to visit me at college every chance that he could. Once I graduated,
I was able to move back home to be closer to Mike. We dated for four years
before getting married.
We struggled with unexplained infertility for about 4 years,
and then we decided to try having a baby through IVF. We finally became
pregnant with the help of IVF only to suffer a devastating loss. We did grieve
and healed emotionally and spiritually.
On April 24, 2016 we received a call that changed our lives
forever. Our son, Michael, was born and his birth mother selflessly and
lovingly gave us the greatest blessing we have ever received… a beautiful baby
to complete our family. Michael is now 2-years-old, and we have realized that
our family is still not complete without one more member. We both feel strongly
that we are meant to be a family of four and cannot wait to meet our newest
addition. We each grew up with a sibling, Mike with a brother and Kristan with
a sister, and we just feel that we are meant to have 2 children to raise with
one another and to share our love, laughter and joy with.
We look forward to going to the zoo and taking them fishing,
family vacations to the beach or to the lakes and mountains in one of the many
national parks, and spending time with family, including Mike’s brother’s two
adopted children, who are 1 and 4-years-old. Next comes the first days of
school, the sports or music classes that our children may be interested in, then
onto college, first love and weddings etc. We’re looking forward to years and
years of love to give and receive. These are our hopes and dreams for your
child and Michael. We believe that God led us to adopt Michael, and we are
ready and excited to adopt and love again!!!
If you are the birth mother who feels that special
connection to us, we want to reassure you that we will love your child as our
own, as we do with Michael. We promise to do everything in our abilities to
ensure that she or he is happy, healthy and lives a full life. We want you to
know that your baby will be given a wonderful life of love and opportunity.
We wish you love, peace and comfort in your journey to find
that special family for your child.
Mike and Kristan
