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 nephews, and playing with puppies!
Kristen is a registered nurse and a kind, funny, strong woman who enjoys reading, cooking, and arts & crafts. Arturo is a marketer 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) after maternity leave, and Arturo has a very flexible work schedule and is fortunate to have 12 weeks paid family leave, so we will have ample time to enjoy the challenges of parenting together.
We have the full support of our family and friends throughout this journey. Kristen’s parents are only ten minutes away, and Kristen’s mom 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! Arturo’s parents live in Mexico, and they too are excited and ready to be grandparents! Luckily, they 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 and are open to maintaining contact with you after placement – anything from text messages and pictures to occasional phone calls and even meetings.
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! We will do everything we can to raise a happy, healthy, responsible, and respectful person who cares about others.
Thank you for spending the time getting to know us – we look forward to getting to know you too!
Kristen & Arturo
