Kim & Seth
Last Activity: 2 days ago

We're Seth and Kim: two tall, slightly nerdy best friends who love the outdoors, good design, and family time.

Welcome! We're Kim and Seth Christensen. We are best friends who enjoy—among many things— family time, the great outdoors, good design, your average sci-fi/fantasy universe, and the British Baking Show.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop and get to know us a little better. We know there is a lot to navigate here.

We know you have many unique concerns, wishes, and plans at this time. Please know that we appreciate your care and willingness to explore all possible futures for your child. For years, we have hoped, planned, and prayed to grow our family. In our own way, we have experienced uncertainty, heartache, and fear when it comes to planning for our own children (as you can see, it's still just the two of us so far) and we hope that some of that has shaped our hearts to better understand others. While you have difficult decisions ahead of you, we commend you for your efforts thus far.

We are each blessed to have come from loving families that taught us the value of hard work, faith, patience, a good attitude and finding joy in the journey. While our journey to becoming parents hasn't been quite as smooth as we had hoped, we are so excited to grow our family through adoption. We understand that adoption includes growing that family in other ways, as we build relationships with the birth parents of our future children and foster meaningful connections that will bind them together in ways that grow and heal us all.

If you would like to learn more about us, our desire to adopt, or whether we might be a good fit, please read on. You can also check us out at nielschris.com.

Thanks for stopping by! May God bless you on your journey.

Who We Are

In many ways, we are pretty well-matched. Not that this was something that we realized right away. In fact, our first date was probably one of the worst either of us had been on: a blind group date where we hardly talked, Seth felt self-conscious, and Kim may have gotten a little too competitive playing Catch Phrase. Fortunately for us, months later, we tried again and, apparently, playing Lego Pictionary—Kim’s invention—did the trick. We are big believers in second chances!

We both like being active, enjoying hikes, walks, bike rides, and the occasional yoga class—even though Seth is far more flexible and it can really bug Kim. We love to find new and fun places and opportunities to learn, like museums, concerts, the Tracy Aviary, and community activities. We love to cultivate a bit of nature in our own yard, and gardening gives us some opportunity to do that, plus we get lots of plants and produce to eat and share. This year Kim even experimented with organic pest control for indoor seedlings by building a “Ladybug Containment Area,” but we probably wouldn’t recommend that because, as it turns out, ladybugs are escape artists who do not like being contained. We are pretty nerdy (Kim especially) and both have a healthy love for sci-fi and fantasy: making Star Wars t-shirts, re-enjoying LOTR or Narnia for the umpteenth time, or dressing up for a Harry Potter release or going to the Wizarding World at Universal (Kim's siblings and parents are particularly passionate fans).

Most importantly, we share the same core beliefs and goals. We love to serve in our neighborhood and with our church. We believe that our purpose is to love and serve others, hopefully leaving the world a better place. We want to be able to do good in our families and communities. We believe in the importance of education and want to make lifelong learning part of our family life. We believe that we need to treasure this beautiful world. We want to embrace opportunities to enjoy and care for the natural wonders that surround us. We believe in loving Heavenly Parents who inspire us to be better and kinder every day. We believe that God’s plan for us includes growing our family and are willing to work hard to help that happen.
