Our Lifestyle

Headed Out to Spend Time With Family & Friends

We are both very laid-back individuals. Usually on weekends we like to be together watching TV or movies. We also love to go to the many restaurants near our house. We live in a growing area and there always seems to be new places being built all around us. We live in a safe neighborhood in a wonderful location where there is always something fun to do!

Church is also very important to us. We go to a small church near our house and have made many friends there. There are a lot of families with small children at our church so we know that we will have a great community to help us raise our child.

We have three dogs who are really sweet and a lot of fun to be around. Heidi is a Pomeranian, Felix is a Sheltie, and Juliet is a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel. All three of our dogs have great personalities and they all love kids. Felix is the most playful and always has a great time playing fetch whenever kids come over. He is really fluffy so everyone loves to pet him. Juliet is the most lovable and really like to be close to whoever is around. She will always be your friend and sit in your lap whenever you call her. Heidi is the most independent and the oldest of our dogs. Most of the time she keeps to herself, but when she wants attention she will literally beg you for it in a really cute way. We know that our dogs will be great with our child and we can't wait to add our child to our family.

Our Leisure Time

James Playing Piano

There are lots of different thing that we enjoy doing in our free time. James has been playing music since he was 8 years old. He plays piano and guitar and he loves to sing. Our child would be surrounded by many different types of music and would be encouraged to lean an instrument if that's what our child wanted to do.

We both love to read and believe encouraging a good reading habit is really important to start at a young age. We will definitely make sure our child has a lot of books! We also love to go out to the movie theater or snuggle up on the couch and watch our favorite shows. When the weather is nice, it's hard for us to resist going outside and playing with our dogs or taking care of our flower beds. We both love going to the flower store every spring and picking out new flowers to plant to make our home look beautiful.

We want our child to enjoy spending free time with us, but we also want our child to find things that he/she loves to do and will do everything we can to support them no matter what their favorite hobby ends up being.

What it Means to Become Parents

Kristen at the Zoo With a Boy She Nannied

We believe that some of the most important things parents can provide to a child are love and security. Our child will know from day one what it means to be loved. Our child will know that there is nothing he or she could do to make us stop loving him or her. Our child will always be encouraged to explore and learn new things and find his or her special gifts and talents. James can't wait to share his love of music with our child and Kristen can't wait to teach our child how to cook and bake cookies. We both want to encourage our child to learn and explore new things in the hopes that our child will discover his or her special gifts and talents and so that those gifts and talents can grow. More than anything, we believe that being a good parent simply means being there no matter what and giving unconditional love and support.

Our House and Neighborhood

Our Home

We live in the great state of Texas. There's so much you can do here, from visiting the Alamo, to camping under the stars in the Piney Woods, to relaxing on the beach, and even listening to the best live music in Austin while eating great Tex-Mex food!

We have four bedrooms, two living rooms and a huge backyard where our child can play with our dogs. Our favorite time of the year is Christmas because our house looks its best when it is decorated with lights and garland inside and out!

We don't have to go very far to have fun because we live is a great neighborhood with lots of activities for kids to do. We have walking trails that we love to take our dogs on. There is even a pond with fish, turtles, and ducks. We also have a great neighborhood playground with a community pool. There are lots of other kids to play with in the neighborhood and around the trails there are plenty of grass areas around the trails to play football or soccer.

We live in one of the biggest cities in Texas that has one of the country's best zoos and several of the best art and history museums in the world. We also live really close to the homes of four professional sports teams.

Our Extended Families

James' Family

Just recently, we were taking family photos with James' family for his dad's 70th birthday. After we were done we told James' mom and dad that we were planning on adopting a child. They were both extremely excited!

Kristen's Family

Our child would be the first grandchild on both sides of our family. Kristen's mom used to be a 2nd grade teacher and really loves kids. All of our parents are retired and so we'll have great babysitters with lots of experience to help take care of our child. Kristen's brother is really excited to be an uncle and James' two sisters can't wait to be aunts!

All of our family members live within 1.5 hours of us so it is really easy for us to get together and share quality time making memories. James also has cousins Arizona that have children who are always lots of fun to visit.

From Us to You

Thank you for taking the time to look through our profile. We know it's hard to get to know someone based only on pictures and short paragraphs, but we hope that you can see that we are two people who love each other and that we want more than anything to share our love with a child. We have been married now for almost ten years. These have been the best ten years of our lives!

We have always wanted a child and we have been given so much hope for making our dream come true through adoption. We are so thankful that you have chosen to consider adoption and would be honored if you chose us to nurture and guide your child.

James loves playing with the children of our friends and family and he has a great laugh that makes everyone want to join in on the fun. He is also a talented musician and he would love to share his love of music with a child. One of James's greatest strengths is that he is very patient and supportive.

Kristen is smart, nurturing, and selfless. She has a gentle, child-like spirit. Every child that meets her instantly loves her, and she always loves to play with them.

Our faith is very important to us. In fact, it is one of the primary reasons why we are choosing to adopt. When we found out we couldn't have children we knew that us having our own children wasn't the only way God designed for us to have a family. Adoption is an important part of the Christian faith. In the book of Ephesians, Paul teaches that God, because of the great love He has for us, "predestined us for adoption to Himself as sons through Jesus Christ." This is why adoption is so special to us. We can call ourselves children of God through Jesus because God has adopted us into His family through Jesus. It is our prayer that our child would be adopted twice: by us, and by God through Jesus.

We know that considering adoption can be difficult. We're sure you've thought a lot about what might happen to your child. We promise you that we will love your child and provide your child with a wonderful life. We want to raise a child to be who he/she wants to be. We want to make sure your child gets the best education we can provide and is surrounded by friends and family members who will love and support him or her. We would be happy to send letters and pictures to you as the child grows up. If you want to have more contact with the child we would be happy to discuss that with you.

We envision our life after we become parents to be fun and chaotic at times, but we welcome the sleepless nights and diaper changes. We are excited for the future and can't wait to introduce the child to our loving extended family, wonderful network of friends and grandparents that are overflowing with anticipation. This baby will be the first grandchild on both sides of our families, so it will be very special. In the future, we hope to add another child to our family through adoption so they will have a brother or sister.

Thank you again for taking the time to look at our profile. If you have any questions you'd like to ask us please feel free.
