Kyle & Kristen
Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents! We hope that our profile does a good job of showing you who we are, as well as how much love, joy, and excitement our life and home have to offer your child. We are ready to be great parents and would be honored if you chose us.
Our lifestyle is very community based. We see our friends multiple times a week to share meals, laugh together, cry together, and even watch each other’s kids when needed. You can expect your child to be a part of a group of growing families who hangout weekly and sometimes travel together. Among our closest friends there are already three children with more on the way, one of which will also be adopted.
We love to travel, go to the movies, and try new restaurants, but we are also just as comfortable enjoying time at home cooking together, playing video games, or watching movies. Kristen loves horses, baking, and gardening. Kyle loves to fish, hunt, play music, and woodwork. We are easy going people who love spending time together.
One interesting thing about our lifestyle is that we both have the summers off of work. This is something we planned for so that we could prioritize spending time as a family. This allows us to go on fun vacations and see lots of places. So far we have kept our adventures in North America, but hope to leave the continent some day!
What it Means to be Parents
To us, being parents means sharing our love, life, and home with a child. We are excited to watch a child learn, grow, and develop their own personality. Although being parents will be challenging, we fully expect to enjoy raising a child. There is so much to enjoy! We are excited to witness all of life’s “firsts.” From the first steps and words to the first time seeing the beach or the first taste of frozen custard on a summer night. We are also excited to introduce them to the things in life that we love and creating new memories while doing them together. Children have such a great way of discovering the joy in life and we are excited to help make it happen.
Education We will Provide
Our household cares a lot about a good education, because we both work at local schools! We both work at great schools and your child will have the option to go to either of them. As an Occupational Therapy Assistant who works with elementary aged kids, Kristen knows a lot about the developmental stages of children and will ensure that they have well developed motor and social skills. As a 7th Grade Teacher, Kyle hopes to be a great support system for a child. Whether it is one of our students or our own child, we both feel that a child’s education is of the upmost priority, and so is creating a home environment where a child has accountability but is free to take ownership of their education and get help when needed.
The schools in our area are great and offer a wide variety of extracurricular activities. We are excited as parents to one day go to band concerts, soccer practice, or whatever else this child chooses to pursue.
Our Extended Families
We both have amazing and supportive families that are unique in their own ways. Each side of our family is excited to welcome your child. Our journey to adoption has been lengthy and the anticipation and the excitement of our families has grown right along with our own. Each of our families live in the same state and we see them frequently.
Kristen comes from a family of five. She has a younger sister and younger brother. Her parents love having the family around and when we are all together it is common that we share a meal, drink coffee together, and play any number of the family’s favorite board games or card games. Kristen’s family has fun traditions such as playing large card games with the whole family.
Kyle comes from a family of four. He has an older brother, who lives close to his parents and has a two-year-old daughter. Kyle’s parents live on a farm and love having the family over to share meals, put together puzzles or enjoy the farm life. His family has a lot of fun traditions such as going to Farm Fest, deer hunting together, and making homemade pizza on Christmas Eve. Your child would be raised among two loving sets of grandparents who are very excited to meet them.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a lovely, quiet neighborhood at the end of dead end street. Our house is surrounded by mature trees and welcoming flower beds. Inside, our three-bedroom home has everything we need to do one of our favorite things: host friends and family. Our kitchen, dining room, and living room are all set up in a way to bring people together and be as welcoming as possible. Our home is decorated with pictures of friends and family, as well as keepsakes from our many travels. Our home has a nice fenced-in back yard where a child could play and Kyle could get carried away building play sets.
Our neighbors are wonderful and are a part of why we bought the house! We have a handful of elderly neighbors who love a good conversation and are always happy to offer our dog treats. We also have younger neighbors who are starting families of their own. Our next door neighbors have two-year-old twins who play in the front yard most evenings. We’re looking forward to adding to the amount of young, smiling faces in the neighborhood.
From Us to You
We are Kristen and Kyle. We are excited and honored that you are considering choosing us to be the parents of your child. Having the opportunity to raise a child in our home will be the most joyful experience of our lives. We are excited to tell you about who we are and our heart for adoption.
We have been married for almost seven years. One of our dreams has been to start a family and we know welcoming a child into our family will be a great joy. We know it takes a village to raise a child and we have the most encouraging and supporting village. We have a diverse neighborhood and friend group with children for your child to grow up with, one of which will also be adopted.
We both work at local school districts. We love working with children and encouraging them to grow and develop new skills. Working in education allows us to spend quality time together as we always have summers, holidays, and weekends off. This allows us to travel, visit family often, and spend time doing the things we love. We hope that our child will enjoy traveling with us and are excited to show them the world.
Our journey to adoption has not been easy, but adoption has always been on our minds. We had planned to have a biological child and eventually adopt. A three year battle with infertility finally led us to move straight to adoption. Since we already thought we would adopt one day, it didn’t make sense to carry on with all of the testing and medical procedures. We have always believed that adoption is one of the most selfless and necessary things you could do for someone.
Struggling with infertility forced us to look at what is really important and what our true motives behind parenthood were. We set out to share our life with a child and raise them in a loving and caring home, where they will be encouraged to become themselves and pursue their dreams. We know that our goal is the same whether the child is biological or not.
We are confident that we are going to be great parents. Both of our careers have been dedicated to making sure that children get the love and care they need to reach their potential. We are both easy going, fun loving people whose biggest joy in life comes from the people we love. Your child will fit right in to our life and will be well loved and well cared for.
We want to do what is best for our future child. With this we hope to have an open adoption and plan to send letters and pictures to you. We feel that it is important for you to know that you made the right choice and we would happily work with you to come up with a plan for how to communicate, including meetings on occasion if that is what you would like. The decision you are making is a hard one, and we don’t want you to ever doubt that you made the right choice. Your child’s story will be a crucial part of who they are, and we believe an open adoption will help them develop into a confident and capable adult.
We know we will make great parents and we hope this letter gives you the same confidence in us that we have in ourselves. Thank you for considering us as the parents of your child.
