Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about us. Adoption holds a special place in our hearts, and we do not enter into this space lightly. We’re Colton and Kristi, and we have three beautiful kids – all who joined our family through adoption. The weight of the moment you are in is more than we can understand, and we imagine your heart is feeling a hundred different emotions. We can only pray that our words might leave you feeling surrounded, supported, and perhaps a little less alone.
Our experiences have taught us that adoption is not black and white, but more of a both/and. We understand the weight and loss that comes with adoption, but we have also seen the beauty and richness that can simultaneously be found. We so deeply desire to come alongside you in any way we can – even if just for this moment. Regardless of what you choose, we hope you know you are seen, you are loved, and you are worthy of both. Your voice in these days and weeks ahead is the one that matters most.
We really love being parents, and we love that our children are living in the reality that the definition of family is so much bigger than DNA. We’re honored to love our kids, but we’re also honored to love their birth families and walk alongside them, each in different ways.
Even as you educate yourself on all of your options, we pray you feel the freedom to dream a little bit, too; no matter what you choose, you will always be a significant part of this child’s life.
So thank you again for considering us, and thank you for letting us share our heart. We pray you feel empowered to do whatever is right for you and your child, and that you may find peace, confidence, and all the strength we know is already inside you.
Colton & Kristi
