Dear Expectant Mom,
We are grateful that you are considering us as adoptive parents of your child, and we are amazed by your strength and courage to consider it. While we can’t pretend to understand how important this decision is for you, we do know that your decision comes from a place of deep courage and love. We are inspired and honored at the idea of raising a child through adoption. We see adoption as a sacred agreement between the expectant mother and ourselves.
Jonathan has an 11 -year- old son, William, from his previous marriage. William is eager to have a younger sibling. Kris has always wanted to be a mother, but was unable to conceive. We are so excited to add to our family. We live in a quiet, family-friendly neighborhood. The sidewalks and streets are busy with people walking their dogs and families out on bikes. We live just blocks from a large park with a pond, jungle gym, soccer field, tennis courts, and a walking path. We also live near a river where Kris and our dog, Ari, like to run and swim.
We are a musical family. Jonathan has a degree in music and is a guitar fanatic. He has a small studio in the house and dreams of building a music man-cave in the back yard. Kris also appreciates music and they both love to go out to hear live music. William is learning to play the drums. As a family, we like to cook together, go for walks, scooter rides, and spend time with family and friends.
We are from opposite coasts and still have family on both coasts. Jonathan’s parents live in the San Francisco bay area, just a couple hours from us. We travel there to see them whenever we can and they come to our home to spend time with us when they are able. We have many cousins and extended family living in the Bay Area and enjoy having large family gatherings for holidays and birthdays. Jonathan’s brother lives locally with his family. They have a son who is close with our son William and a daughter who is a freshman in high school.
One of our favorite family outings is meeting for lunch in San Francisco and going to see the San Francisco Symphony. Kris’s family lives on the East Coast and we fly there at least once per year to spend time with them, usually during the holidays. They live close to the Atlantic Ocean where we love to ride bikes and walk the dogs on the beach. Her twin nephews just left for college. Christopher is studying automotive engineering and Kyle is studying business. They are both incredible athletes.
We have many friends who have adopted children and they are so
excited and supportive. Our families are also very excited and can’t wait to
share their wisdom and love.
If you choose us, you have our whole-hearted commitment to raise your child with unconditional love and support. We will raise your child to hold their head high, to be strong in mind and kind in heart. We will teach them to love themselves and others and to live a life of integrity, honor and courage. We will provide the resources and support they need to cultivate their talents and reach for their dreams.
Kris and Jonathan
