We are excited to introduce our family to you! Although it is difficult to capture all that we would like to in just a few paragraphs, it is our hope that this will help you learn a bit about us, our family, and the love and memories that we share together.
We believe that your decision to make an adoption plan is a loving decision, and also understand that it comes with difficult emotions and choices. It is our hope that you see the loving, supportive, and fun environment of our family, and we would be honored to become a part of your journey.
About Our Family
We are a fun, energetic and loving family. As a couple, we have many interests in common, such has camping, hiking, boating and fishing. (Although Kristin is the lead fisherman of the family!) We also have our own unique interests. Tyler enjoys running and trying new foods, while Kristin loves to sew costumes and plan birthday parties.
Our two boys are active, curious, kind, and adventurous! Caden, our 8 year old, is a member of Cub Scouts and participates in taekwondo. He is also an avid reader and enjoys coding and computer games. Beckett, our 6 year old, enjoys fishing and playing on his soccer and flag football teams. He is also our animal lover and vegetarian by choice! (He believes animals are “just too cute to eat”)
We are both elementary school teachers, and greatly enjoy working in the same district that our children attend. We are fortunate to have our summers together, and use this time to travel, camp, explore National Parks, and go boating. Our goal is for our children to have visited all 50 states by the time they graduate.
Many evenings and weekends in our home are spent at the table playing board games. This, thanks to Tyler, has become a family obsession. We are regularly found at the local board game store finding new games to play together!
About Tyler (According to Kristin, Caden and Beckett)
Tyler is an amazing daddy and husband. I couldn’t ask for a better teammate to parent with. His devotion to make our children’s lives positive and fun is evident in nearly all that he does. He builds phenomenal Lego creations and forts, creates the most fantastic four-wheeler race tracks in the back yard, and gives the most fun carries to bed at bedtime! Caden says, “I love that he is funny, and plays games with me,” and Beckett says, “I like when he reads me stories with silly voices.”
About Kristin (According to Tyler, Caden and Beckett)
There is nothing Kristin loves more than being with her family. It is the center of her life. Our children and I have been nothing short of lucky to have her filling the mommy role in our family. She looks forward to playing with her family every chance that she gets. Her favorite moments are those spent together traveling the country in our camper and seeing new things. She loves to take our children out on the boat to explore and search for wildlife, and share her fishing “expertise.” Caden says, “She makes great breakfasts and awesome birthday cakes” and Beckett says, “I love when she cuddles with me.”
Our Home and Community
We live far enough in the country that we can enjoy the outdoor space, but close enough to enjoy the city as well. We have wonderful neighbors who we enjoy spending summers with by the campfire, playing games or watching outdoor movies in the backyard. We also belong to a supportive and loving church family, and are active leaders in our Vacation Bible School.
We are fortunate that we are able to bring our kids to the wonderful school district that we teach in. Our district provides a friendly and diverse environment, full of extra-curricular opportunities.
Thank you for the loving decision you are considering, and for viewing our profile. We hope that we may have the opportunity to meet, and share more about our family with you.
