We are Alan and Kristina, and we are honored and grateful to you for considering us as adoptive parents. Like you, we are dreaming of the best and most beautiful future for our child, whether or not it is with the one you are placing. It takes an uncommon ability to imagine what this future life looks like and we believe this makes you a dreamer. We acknowledge the extraordinary courage and imagination you have in this process, and we are so thankful to you for opening your heart by reading about who we are.
It seems important to say from the beginning that we believe that the story of the human family is one in which we are all connected much like the branches of a magnificent tree. To us, it does not matter if we are closely related by blood because all of our stories intertwine. Sometimes these stories are joyful and sometimes they are painful. Sometimes they are untold and sometimes they are still to come. Regardless of circumstance, we believe that every story is meaningful, and we welcome your story as we share with you ours.
