Arturo and Kristen
Hello, we are Kristen & Arturo and, along with our sweet dog Bailey, we are so excited to start a family!
We are thankful for your consideration, and we have the utmost respect for your decision to consider adoption. We are here for you and your child, and we will do anything we can to support you through this journey. Please know that, should you choose us to parent your child, we will give them our unconditional love and support.
We met in the spring of 2013 and immediately hit it off, which led to our marriage in the summer of 2016. We’re an active, fun-loving couple who enjoy laughing, traveling, good food, working out, attending concerts and sports events, babysitting our nephew, and playing with puppies! We can honestly say that every day since meeting has been a wonderful adventure.
Kristen is a registered nurse and a kind, funny, strong woman who enjoys reading, cooking, and arts & crafts. Arturo is a market researcher for a large automotive company and a smart, thoughtful, and loving man who’s an avid soccer player, music fanatic, and car enthusiast. We’re fortunate to be in a position that will allow Kristen to work part-time (2 days per week) once a baby comes home with us, and Arturo has a very flexible work schedule, so we will have ample time to enjoy the challenges of parenting together.
We are also fortunate to have the full support of our family and friends throughout this journey. Kristen’s parents are only ten minutes away, and Kristen’s mom, in particular, is a wonderful babysitter – she’s a retired elementary school teacher who loves spending time teaching kids to speak, read, write, and grow up healthy and loved! We have a nephew (son of Kristen’s brother) who already experiences this first-hand. Arturo’s parents live in Mexico, and they too are excited and ready to be grandparents! Luckily, Arturo’s parents own their own business, which gives them a lot of flexibility to come visit. Arturo’s mom has already made it clear that she’s spending a few months here when we adopt a child!
We intend to be open with our child about his or her adoption – keeping information at an age-appropriate level as the child grows and matures. We’re open to maintaining contact with you after placement if that’s what you desire – anything from text messages and pictures to occasional phone calls and even meetings, as long as it’s in the child’s best interest.
We are ready to be parents and will give all our love, support, and devotion to give your child a wonderful life full of opportunities and happiness!
Thank you for spending the time getting to know us – we look forward to getting to know you too!
Kristen & Arturo
