A Letter from Aldrin & Kristine
Hello! We’re a loving couple, married over 8 years, and we’d love to share our lives with a child. We’re active in our faith, love to explore nature and city attractions, and are set up to provide a stable family life as first-time parents. Going through infertility has brought us closer together and we believe God has called us on this path to adopt. We’re so excited to adopt our first child and hope to get to know you, as much as you are comfortable.
We met online 10 years ago and got engaged after just 2 months! We knew quickly that we were meant to be together.
Together we enjoy:
• Attending church
• Home or yard improvement projects
• Visiting state parks, historical sites, and museums
• Shopping antique stores or flea markets
• Traveling around the U.S. and overseas (even for spontaneous trips!)
• Going to the zoo or aquarium
• Road trips in the RV
According to Aldrin: Kristine is easy to make smile, understanding, and a good listener. My wife is all about family! She has a heart for children and will be a genuinely loving and attentive mom.
• Decorating (especially for Christmas!)
• Baking almost anything
• Cake decorating
• Reading non-fiction books about faith or to learn new things
• Couponing & shopping for deals
According to Kristine: Aldrin loves to make others laugh! He doesn’t take life too seriously, is calm, and resourceful. I know he’ll be the kind of dad to teach our child lots of skills, from riding bikes or working on cars, to cooking or building things.
• Weight lifting
• Cooking & barbecue
• Fixing cars
• Off road vehicles
• Swimming & Snorkeling
• Wood working
• Fix-it projects at home
We live in a growing part of north Texas in a quiet, safe neighborhood. We’re good friends with some of our neighbors and we all look out for each other. There are many activities to do here, like the zoo, flea markets, shopping, historical sites, and local events. It’s easy to travel to other places from here too.
Our 2-story home has 4 bedrooms, a fenced-in backyard with room for a swing set, and lots of living space to relax or play. We’ve already started a nursery in a room next to our bedroom, including furniture and a library of baby books.
We have family around the U.S. and overseas! Aldrin has family in Guam, the Philippines, and Hawaii. In between visits, he keeps in touch with his family overseas with calls and video chats. Kristine comes from a big extended family (over 100 cousins!) and her parents and siblings live in the Midwest and we love traveling to visit them. We have close friends in Texas and Tennessee too. So far we have 8 nieces and nephews, so our child will have lots of cousins. Holidays are big for us and we love catching up with loved ones whenever we get together.
We promise your child will be our number one priority and we will make sure he or she knows how loved and accepted they are as a part of our family. We will offer security and provide for anything he or she could ever need. Our promise is to cherish this opportunity to be parents to your child daily.
As parents, we promise to teach responsibility, care for others, to make the most of education, show respect, and to find the joy in the big and little memories along the way. If you’d like, we welcome an open adoption with ongoing contact after the adoption. We will help your child understand and be proud of our family’s adoption story, from day one, always speaking of you out of love and great appreciation. You will always hold a special place in our hearts.
Thinking of you, Aldrin & Kristine
