A Letter of Love to You,
Your interest in adoption is possibly the most selfless act a mother could do for her child, and we admire your courage and strength. We've always known adoption would be our path. Maybe it's because Kristina was taken in and cared for by a friend’s family when she was young and our definition of family extends beyond blood. Or maybe it's because we have known pregnancy would never be possible for us. No matter the reason, adoption holds a very special place in our hearts.
We met when we were in high school and have been happily married for over 11 years. Mike is a pilot and Kristina is a personal caregiver; however, Kristina is thrilled to become a stay-at-home mom. Even though we currently live in North Carolina, we both grew up in Wisconsin and are true Midwesterners at heart. We've always had dreams of raising a beautiful family and couldn't be more excited to welcome a child into our lives!
Both of us are very close to our families, and they're anxiously awaiting a new member to join the bunch. Your child instantly will be loved by aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, friends and their pets galore. We get together regularly for weekend visits, holidays, big events and vacations. In our life, adoption is already present and spoken about openly. We have numerous friends and family with children who were adopted and Kristina’s sister is currently in the process of adopting siblings. Your child will be surrounded with acceptance, love and support.
We'll be certain your child knows the very first act of love they received was your decision to pursue adoption. An open adoption is an option for us, but ultimately the decision is yours to make. No matter what, we promise a lifetime of commitment to loving and caring for your child. We extend our hearts to you as you continue on this life-changing journey!
Mike and Kristina
