Introduction
Hi! We are Russ and Krista. We are excited to be prospective adoptive parents again! We are wanting to adopt, because we are unable to grow our family naturally. We believe God has led us to you and your child. We want you to know that we respect and admire your courage and are empathetic to your thoughts and feelings about adoption. We hope that you find comfort in learning about us and see how much love we have to offer your child. We wish you the best in your life and offer our prayers for your strength and peace in whatever decision you decide. God Bless.

About Us
We are a family of four wanting to expand our family with another sibling for Emma and Zade to become a family of 5. We expanded our family on December 1, 2016 when our adopted son Zade was born. He is such a blessing to our family and is very loved! He is very good with little babies and Emma who is 15 cannot wait to have another little brother or sister running around. Emma is the sweetest girl we know. She is thrilled and excited to be a big sister to another sibling! She is amazing with her little brother Zade, her cousins, and is very caring, kind, warm, loving, and smart. We live a normal life with ups and downs and we will raise our son or daughter within our Christian faith, unconditional commitment, and provide a forever home. We are 100% dedicated to our family. We are always getting together for family birthdays, holiday cookouts, and visiting our family members that live far away. We get together for family weekend get-aways to go hiking, fishing, watch movies, and more.

About our Home/Pets
Our dog Bella is 7 years old and loves kids. She is the sweetest dog, loves treats, running in the yard, and cuddling with us. She is a member of our family and will be the best pet for our new son or daughter. We love her so much.
We live in a great suburban neighborhood with sidewalks and lots of kids! We even have families in our neighborhood whose children are also adopted; we will have lots of community support for our son or daughter. Our school district is rated one of the highest in the state, and there are parks, playgrounds, a neighborhood community pool, and club house nearby. There are lots of fun activities throughout the year like the Easter Egg hunts, Halloween kids parties, and more.
