Hello! We are Kristen and Nathan. We met on a mission trip to Nicaragua in college, and have been married for 4 years. We have had the pure joy of being foster parents to several amazing children, and are now looking to add to our family through adoption! Our favorite things to do as a family are hiking, traveling to new places, spending time with friends and family, and playing games in our yard and playroom. Kristen works as a children’s counselor in both private practice and at an elementary school. Nathan works for our church as the technology administrator. Our faith is very important to us, and we are very committed to showing and teaching our children about the love of Jesus for our family and for the world. Adoption has always been a part of our lives and faith – as Nathan himself was adopted into his family. Seeing the way in which God has worked through Nathan’s adoption story, and the stories of the children we have fostered, has led us to want to choose adoption for our family.
OUR MESSAGE TO YOU:
While we don’t know exactly the circumstances you are going through, what we do know is that if you are considering adoption for your child, you are someone who is selfless, brave, and loving. We would like you to know that we would love to be able to provide a life full of love, belonging, purpose, and lots and lots of fun for your baby. Our view of you will always be one of complete awe, love, and thankfulness for the decision you are making. Words do not express the gratitude we have for parents who choose to give the gift of life despite hardships. We will raise your child to know and understand that view of you as well. Thank you for considering us during this difficult decision. We will continue to be in prayer for all of the decisions being made around your adoption.
