Our journey, along with yours, is just beginning, as we sit and write this with many emotions like joy, excitement and even a bit of nervousness! We are excited for where this road is going to take us and nervous because we will be first time parents. We can't wait to open our home to children and love them unconditionally.
We are Kristin and Kathy, from Virginia, where Virginia is for lovers :) We met about 10 years ago through mutual friends and after a couple of years... and break ups later, we began dating in late 2011. We married in April 2015 at one of our favorite places to be...the beach! We love being outdoors for camping, fishing, kayaking, gardening or just playing around with our dogs (Cookie and Jax). We love our fur babies and spoil them rotten! Cookie is lab/pit mix and Jax is a boxer mix. We love to travel, seeing and doing new stuff, we love music and going to concerts, and we love spending time with family and friends.
We have both known since the beginning of our friendship that we both wanted children!
We began our adoption process January of this year and have put our heart and soul into this. We can't wait to experience this with you and to watch your child grow and become an amazing human being!
We look forward to meeting and growing with you through this process! If you have any questions at all for us please feel free to message us!!! We cant wait to meet you!
We live in Virginia, in a one story, three bedroom house. We live in a safe neighborhood in close proximity to the area schools. We all know our neighbors and take care of each other when needed. We have a privacy fenced in back yard with lots of room to play to stay safe. We have a warm loving home with a bedroom waiting for your child.
We thought we could write about each other, so this is Kathy writing about my wonderful wife, Kristin. Kristin graduated high school and worked in the food industry through high school and a few years after graduation. She received a great opportunity to become a housing agent for low income families. She has been there for ten years and loves how rewarding her job can be. She's got a heart of gold when it comes to her work. Growing up she enjoyed playing softball and basketball and is very competitive! Kristin is a honest and hardworking woman. She is able to express her thoughts, feelings and opinions openly and clearly. She is outgoing, gentle, kind-hearted and oh so very clever and crafty in our relationship . She is empathetic and responsible. She is supportive and great with kids. Kids seem to flock to her wherever we go. She is so patient and gentle when she's with kids.
Kristin's got that personality that lights up the room and can start a conversation with anyone. She loves spending time with her family and enjoys every second. Even though she loves her nap time snuggles with the pups, she loves to stay on the go! She is very persistent to get things accomplished when she sets goals. She makes a wonderful wife and I knew she'd be even better as a mother. She is the baby in her family but has 1 sister. She sees her parents and sister weekly.
Kathy currently works full time as a patient service rep for a pediatric dental office as well as taking online college classes full time! She is very determined in everything she does. She goes above and beyond normal expectations to make sure she is doing the best she can. In school, if she gets a 99% on a quiz, she will retake it in order to try and get the 100%. She doesn't give up and is always wanting to please people and help. If anyone ever needs her she is always willing to jump up and say "ok I'm here what do you want me to do?" She really takes her job to heart, sometimes too much! She is nurturing, caring and committed to whatever she puts her heart to. She is hard-working, loving, supportive, determined and a great friend. She is thoughtful, warm and intelligent. Kathy brings out the best in everyone around her especially me! Her smile is contagious and makes you feel all "gitty," warm and fuzzy. She values her family and enjoys spending time with them as much as she can.She is a great Auntie to her nieces and although they live in another state she always makes it a point to video chat with them or take a trip to see them, even if time only allows for a few hours. Kathy is the youngest of her siblings. She has 2 older sisters, one who lives near by and the other lives out of state.
