Letter of Introduction:
We are Brian, Kristin, and Ava
Thank you so much for taking the time to learn more about our family. We admire your strength and courage through this journey. We can't imagine what you're going through. Your choice to trust another with your child humbles us. We have tried for many years to extend our family, and we are so excited to pursue adoption. We have a biological daughter, Ava. We look forward to sharing our abundant love with the new baby.
If you choose our family, you will know with certainty that we will provide for every aspect of the new baby's physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being each and everyday. We are so in love with Ava and cannot wait to embrace a new little one into our loving family.
Brian grew up in Emporia, Kansas. Kristin grew up in the city, Lenexa, Kansas. We met while Kristin was in college, and Brian was working as a technician at the Nuclear Power Plant. We were introduced through a mutual friend when Kristin was out with her friends for dinner and dancing. After meeting that night and talking, the next day Kristin worked up the courage and called Brian and asked him out on a date. We have been together for the 20 years and married for 17 years.
