Hello! We are Phillip, Kristin and Isla (and fur brother Ollie) and we are grateful that you’re taking the time to learn more about us. We adopted our daughter Isla (eye-la) from birth through A New Beginning and are in awe of the adoption process. We can only imagine the heartache that you’re experiencing right now and we are hoping and praying for you, that you can find comfort in knowing that your little one will be so cherished (as will you, no matter what level of openness that you would prefer).
We met volunteering for Young Life Capernaum, a special needs faith-based organization. Our eyes were opened to loving others in all circumstances and what really matters in life. We’ve been together for 10 years, married for 7 and after years of infertility and miscarriages, we decided to start the adoption process. With Isla and with your baby, we celebrate their birth families and view adoption as a positive part of their story. We share any loving information that we have and appreciate the courage it took to make your beautiful, yet difficult decision.
As a family, we love the outdoors, taking on new adventures, finding the latest and greatest parks and learning centers for Isla to explore, taking walks around the neighborhood, spending time with all of our family and friends, doing creative activities, singing songs (Isla and Kristin especially!), playing records, BBQ-ing, hosting, bike riding, reading, being a part of our church and so much more.
We would love the opportunity to parent your little one. It would be the privilege of our lifetime and we’d put every ounce of our hearts into it. All of our best!
