Dear Friend,


God loves you and so do we. We cannot imagine the difficult decision that you are facing, but we admire you for prayerfully considering the beautiful choice of adoption. Only a selfless, loving, and courageous mother can make this choice.  We thank you for giving us the opportunity to tell you about ourselves and we hope you consider getting to know us a little bit more.  


Our Story

My name is Jesse. I am 31 years old. When I was 21, I was diagnosed with Cancer. Soon thereafter, I was told that I could not father any children. My heart was torn. No matter how bad I felt I had it, no matter how bad my life seemed at the moment, God had a greater purpose. I can say this now in the journey, I thank God for allowing me to have and survive cancer. I am able to appreciate the little things in life. I may have not been able to father children, but I am able to be a dad.  I am in prayer for you, even now, that you may see this as a great gift to us.


My name is Krista. I am 37 years old, and my true passion is serving God and serving others. God has called me to do full time ministry.  I work for a Christian organization and I love to be able to share the gospel with others.  Prayer is the most important thing in my life. I had begun praying for you and other birthfamilies since the day I found out that we could not have children naturally.  I knew that God had a plan for my life as well as the birthfamily that would choose us.  


Krista’s thoughts on Jesse: 

Jesse is my prince charming. He is kind, gentle, patient, loving, funny, handsome, not perfect but humble.  I can't think of a more devoted man to parent with.  He has more courage and strength than any other person that I have known.  He is a true man of God.


Jesse's thoughts on Krista:  

Krista is the love of my life.  She is kind, tenderhearted, loving, selfless, persistent, witty, and hardworking.  She puts others needs in front of her own needs. This is why she is an excellent mother.  Krista is a woman after God’s heart.  


My name is Siboney. I am 2 years old. In 2015, God blessed me by being adopted and placed in the home with my daddy and mommy. I love to read books, play in my kitchen, and I love to sing and dance. I dream of being a princess and one day performing in a musical. I know God has a plan for our family and I have been praying for a baby brother or sister to join us. 


Jesse’s and Krista’s thoughts on Siboney:

Siboney has a great sense of humor and bubbly personality. She has a sweet spirit and a very kind heart. She is very aware of the needs of others and is very quick to help. Every day she reminds us of the same sweet spirit and kindness that was displayed when her birthmother chose us. We love Siboney’s birthmother and we are glad that God brought our families together. 


      

Our Journey

We met at the Boys & Girls Club where we fell in love with one another.  We became each other’s best friends right from the beginning. During our journey at the Boys & Girls Club, we were able to mentor and inspire many children that needed love. This gave us the opportunity to share love to all children as if they were our own. 


After battling cancer, the doctors’ told us that we would not be able to have any children of our own, and this was very devastating.  It took us several years to fully understand what God had been telling us all along.  We knew for several years that God called us to be adoptive or foster parents, but we always thought we would have children of our own.  Once we fully understood and trusted God and His plan for our lives, we were ready to begin the adoption process.


We now have been married for 10 years and have made great strides in our life. We have been cancer-free since first diagnosed.  We have both been able to find jobs that we love and enjoy.  But most importantly, we still hold the commitment true about loving every child as if they were our own. 


Our Home

We live in a safe and friendly neighborhood with a hospital, a fire station, schools, and parks within walking distance. Our immediate community is multi-generational with many young families. Our neighbors are warm and gracious, and we enjoy spending time with them. The kids often enjoy running from yard to yard playing together.         


Our Hobbies

Our hobbies include traveling, attending sporting events, playing board games, and spending time with the family. We enjoy going to hockey games and especially traveling all over the US to attend some of these games.  We also love to travel to cities with zoos and theme parks.  We have been to Disneyland, and we plan in the next 5 years to visit Disneyworld.  As much as we love to travel and spending time with others, we often enjoy time home with the occasional movie night.  


Our Promise

We promise to raise this child in a loving, Christian home.

We promise to keep them safe and secure.

We promise to love them no matter what.

We promise to encourage them to love you and respect the loving choice you made for them.

We promise to train up the child in the ways of the Lord so when they grow up they won’t depart from them.

We promise to nurture them physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

We promise to teach them Spanish no matter what their race.

We promise to surround them with love from family and friends.

We promise to wipe their tears when they are hurt and laugh when they’re silly.

We promise to always celebrate the little things in life.

We promise to thank the Lord every day for you and your precious gift to us.


Love,

Jesse, Krista, and Siboney
