JD & Krista
Our names are JD and Krista. We would like to thank you very much for taking the time to read this. We respect and admire your decision to choose adoption. We can only imagine that it was not an easy option. We hope that this letter gives you a glimpse into our lives and what kind of life we can give a child.
In 1999, we met for the first time on a phone call with a mutual friend. Then 3 months later, we met in person. We did a long distance relationship from Texas to Ohio for a year, then Krista moved to Texas to be with JD. We have been married since 2003. For the past 13 years, we have tried to start a family, but have been unsuccessful.
We live in a small, rural community in south Texas. JD’s parents live within walking distance of us. Our home is on 16 acres of land with lots of room to play. It also has lots of 100+ year old trees that give great shaded areas to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet. In the spring, the fields are covered in beautiful, colorful wildflowers. We can’t forget to add that we also have some great pets: 2 outdoor dogs, 2 outdoor cats and 4 indoor cats, which we consider family.
Krista is a cake decorator and has been at the same company for over 15 years. JD is a delivery driver and been with his company for just over 20 years. Krista enjoys physical activities, anything from walking a couple of miles to doing crossfit and water aerobics. She likes repurposing old/vintage items into useful things again. She also loves to read. JD likes to go walking and bike riding on some of the beautiful trails in our area. He also is a pretty good basketball player! He really enjoys watching movies and sci-fi is his favorite. We both enjoy traveling and doing outdoor activities such as bicycling, canoeing, short hikes together, and even some gardening. Every summer we enjoy taking a 2 week road trip to Ohio where Krista’s family is from. On that trip we always try to see something different on the way up and back. For example, we have visited Nashville several times, been to Memphis and toured Graceland, and have ventured to Oklahoma and got to experience some gorgeous natural scenery! When we are available, we love to participate in a local area symphonic band. Krista plays the clarinet and bass clarinet and JD plays the tuba.
Again, thank you for considering us. Our hearts and our home are eagerly awaiting the opportunity to start our family.
