Meet Thomas & Kristin J., adoptive parents

Dear Birth Parents,

We are Thomas and Kristin J., and we are excited to share a bit about our family. We greatly appreciate you taking the time to learn about us. We recently celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary and have been discussing adoption since before we were married.

We have always talked about having a large family and we believe that families are built on love, not genetics. Both of us are looking forward to growing our family through adoption.

We both work for local manufacturing companies close to our home. Kristin is in Human Resources, Talent Acquisition, and Thomas is a supervisor. We are fortunate to work for great companies, where we will have the flexibility we need to raise a family. We both enjoy what we do, but it is also important to both of us to carve out time to spend with our large extended family.

In our free time, we love to travel. We spend at least a week in South Carolina every summer, right on the beach. It is something that Kristin’s family did, so we wanted to maintain that tradition. We also love the theatre and our local museums.

Our home is situated on over two acres, so we are able to grow a huge vegetable garden, which is a great deal of fun. We also enjoy just spending time at home with family and friends, playing board games, swimming, cooking, and more.

Kristin comes from a very large Italian family while Thomas comes from a small family. We love to incorporate some of our childhood memories as we create traditions for our own family.

We have many hopes and dreams for our family and we want our children to experience all that life has to offer. We want them to feel loved and supported just as we did as children and to understand that we are on a journey together. While there will be ups and downs, they will be loved and cared for.

In September 2017, we welcomed our first child, Angelo. He was born a preemie, but is now thriving. We are so excited that he will be a big brother as we continue to grow our family.

We are praying for and thinking about you as you make this challenging decision and are open to as much or as little contact as you would like to have. We have the greatest respect for you and admire the love you have for your baby.
