Mike & Kristen

Welcome to my adoption page!

I set this up as a place for people to see where we’re at in the adoption process and/or read about our journey in general rather than having to search or scroll through blog posts. I’ll do my best to keep it updated!

You can read about our experience with infertility and loss here and here.

You can read our adoption announcement here.

Our crowdfunding page on AdoptTogether can be found here.

To follow the evolution of my adoption education, and hopefully get more frequent posts than here on the blog, check out the Instagram account I created for that specific purpose.

Our adoption timeline:

September 2018: Home study approved
