We are Tom and Kristin, a young, happily married couple in our early 30's hoping to adopt a baby. We are thrilled to have this opportunity to share a little about ourselves with you. We can imagine how difficult it must be to even consider placing your baby for adoption. We want you to know that your child will always know about you, and the loving, selfless decision that you made.
After our journey with infertility, we decided that adoption is the route our family was meant to take. We know that we can fulfil all of your wishes and dreams for your baby. If you choose us, you will certainly make our dream come true!
We've known each other for 16 years and have been married for 10 years. We first met our junior year in high school where we became friends. After high school we started dating.
We attended the same college, where we enjoyed concerts, hanging out with friends and annual road trips to an amusement park where we loved the roller coasters. A few days before Kristin’s graduation, Tom surprised her by showing up at the horse barn where she worked; he got down on one knee and proposed. Together we planned the wedding and bought our first home in 2004.
Ever since I can remember I have loved horses. When I was younger I took lessons and in college I was on the equestrian team. I currently ride a couple days a week and I also give riding lessons to kids. I mainly take on beginners, some of whom are as young as 5, and love the challenge of keeping them entertained and learning at the same time. A few months ago, one of my younger students asked me the difference between a boy horse and a girl horse. Her father and I looked at each other, laughed, and he told her it was a discussion for her mom to have with her. I found myself hoping one day I would be the one answering the hard questions. Currently I work part time at Beltone Hearing Center, but I look forward to being a stay at home mom after we adopt a baby.
I am a mechanical engineer and love the challenge of designing products. I also tend to be a do-it-yourself-er and am always doing home improvement projects. My passion for building things started when I was young. I always loved math and science, and enjoyed taking apart and putting back together toys to figure out how they worked.
Tom and I visit family in Colorado twice a year. My brother, Jason has become an avid snowboarder. He likes to send me picture messages of himself from the top of mountains. There are many beautiful sites to see in Colorado and Tom always has his camera nearby to capture the moment. My parents have always been my biggest supporters. While growing up, they were always there for me offering encouragement. The most important thing I learned from my parents was compassion. They are the kind of people that are always willing to help others.
We are excited to embrace the changes that come with being first time parents. We feel that it is important to raise your child with compassion, love, a sense of family and strong values. We will create opportunities for your child to have a happy, successful life. Your child will grow up knowing that your decision was made out of love and took a great deal of courage. Our entire family is excited about the possibility of having a new member to love.
