Jimmy & Kristen


 

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to learn about us! We know that right now we are complete strangers, and that can be scary, but we want you to know that we admire the decision you are making. I’m sure there is fear, uncertainty, anger, and heartbreak in having to make the choices you are making, and we are praying that you can find peace in your choice.

We have walked through fear and had moments where we questioned why we couldn’t get pregnant, but there is a joy in knowing that we will get to be parents because of the sacrifice someone else will make. The magnitude of this choice does not fall short in our minds. We have a desire to raise children in our home and surround them with love and laughter! It is our desire to include you in the child’s life and in our life. We understand your feelings may change at times, and we want you to know that is ok! We want you to know that you will be honored in our home and we want your story to be a part of our story as a family, and we want your child to be proud of the choice you made for him/her!

It is our prayer that you experience God’s peace in whatever choice you choose to make, whether that is to parent or place your child for adoption. We have been praying for you since the day we submitted our application to the agency to become adoptive parents and we care for you and love you!

Love,

Jimmy and Kristen

About Us:

Jimmy and Kristen met in middle school and started dating in high school. We got married in 2015 on New Year’s weekend. Jimmy is the Children’s and youth pastor at our church, and Kristen is a Registered Nurse. We both grew up in Georgia and currently reside in Georgia. We both love big and are always up for making memories. We love to smile, laugh, and have a good time! We strive to find the joy in all circumstances, and count each day as a blessing from God! It is our greatest hope that we shine Jesus’ light in all that we do!

We have always dreamed about getting to be parents one day! We both love working with the kids in our children’s church and love spending time with our nieces and nephew. When we found out that we had fertility problems, we knew that God was not saying ‘no’ to becoming parents, but that instead He was just offering us a different way to become parents! God adopted us as a part of His family as it says in Ephesians 1:5, and we find it to be a beautiful thing that we get to grow our family in the same way!
