Marc and Kristy

Hello! We are Kristy and Marc. We really appreciate the opportunity to welcome your child into our loving family. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to learn about us.

We have always known we wanted to be parents, even if it meant going about it an alternative way. We hope that you enjoy reading our profile and are hopeful that you find comfort knowing that your child will be immensely loved. We can’t imagine how difficult the decision is you are facing, but we are looking forward to building an open relationship with our child’s birth parents. We are so excited to be on this journey together. We are open and willing to share many milestones in photos and videos.

THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS FOR TAKING YOUR TIM E TO LEARN ABOUT US.

DEAR BIRTH PARENTS

WE HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN WE WANTED TO BE PARENTS, EVEN IF IT MEANT GOING ABOUT IT AN ALTERNATIVE WAY. We hope that you enjoy reading our profile and are hopeful that you find comfort knowing that your child will be immensely loved. We can’t imagine how difficult the decision is you are facing, but we are looking forward to building an open relationship with our child’s birth parents. We are so excited to be on this journey together. We are open and willing to share many milestones in photos and videos. I don’t think we can ever express how grateful we are for you. We are adopting because we have been given the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on a child’s life. We are a loving couple that enjoys travel, spending time outdoors and spending time with our family. If you decide we are the right parents for your child, we would like you to know that your child will be so loved!

ABOUT US

Funny story about us is that we crossed each other’s path via the internet! At first it was always kind of silly to say we met online but hey it worked for us! Two years later we had a rooftop wedding downtown in Kristy’s home town. Friends from all over made their way to a small town in Texas, it was such a good time having everyone we loved in one place.

We are lucky enough that Kristy will get to be a stay at home mom. Marc has a stable job as a General Manager at an energy services provider. Our day to day life is exciting and ever changing. We enjoy going on golf cart rides and spending afternoons by the river. We also enjoy cooking and grilling at home. One of our favorite things to do is take weekend trips to visit our families and just spend time with them.

About

KRISTY

- BY KRISTY -

I’ve always dreamt of being a mom. Adoption has been on my mind as far back as I can remember. I remember being 17 and trying to figure out how I could work it out. Growing up I had several neighbors that just flocked to my house. I used to always set up kick ball games in my front yard. It drove my parents nuts, but it was important to have a little normalcy in the kids’ lives. I have about 10 years of experience in childcare so I’m not a stranger to chaos!

DO WHAT YOU LOVE,

LOVE WHAT YOU DO

As stated above, I have always worked in childcare, specifically with children between 0-5 years old. Now I spend my time crafting. We are blessed enough for me to stay home and be a a full time stay-at-home mom.

About

MARC

- BY KRISTY -

Raising children and having a family has always been important to me. We have been blessed to be in a position where we can assist in the growth of our children. I played sports growing up and know the importance that they played in my life. I played football in college and look forward to coaching and teaching our children the values that were taught to me from mentors in sports.

As talked about previously, I work in the oil and gas industry as a general manager. I have worked my way up the corporate ladder and have been blessed to be able to work from home as well as in the field

Our Home

AND

Community

We live on the outskirts of a big city. We’re lucky enough to be close to a variety of stores and restaurants, but yet enjoy the benefits of living outside the city limits. We are also close to some gorgeous rivers and state parks. On a lazy Sunday we love taking long drives to enjoy the scenery. Kristy has a craft room and it’s where she spends a lot of her extra time! She really enjoys trying to make new things and likes learning new ways to craft. We both are lucky enough to have family within driving distance. We usually have family visiting on long weekends!

MEET OUR FAMILY

We both have smaller families. Marc has a brother and Kristy has a brother and a sister. We can confidently say that our families are over the moon at the possibility of adding to our family. Kristy has always had dreams of being a mother, but being an aunt has been an awesome experience! Our nieces and nephews have repeatedly commented on how they can’t wait to have a baby cousin! We both are very close to our family. We love family time and spending time with our families.

A SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT ADOPTION: Marc’s dad was also adopted so he is so excited for us to add to our family in the same way.

DOG, BUSTER

We have a 3-year-old English Bulldog and he is an absolute ham. We received him as a puppy and chewed his way through our house. We always make the joke that Buster is half dog half beaver. Buster is a very sleepy dog and can be found sleeping at random places around the house.

Buster loves kids!
