Meet Kristy & Nick O.

Adoptive family

Dear Birthparents,

We are so grateful you are taking the time to get to know us. We are humbled by your courage in choosing adoption. Adoption is near and dear to our hearts as our two nephews were adopted as infants. They have blessed our lives more than we can put into words, and to be able to build our own family through adoption would be the greatest gift.

Our Journey. We met early in 2020 and have been inseparable ever since. When we announced our engagement, many of our friends and family reacted by saying, “I KNEW IT!” Everyone around us “knew” we were a perfect match, and we married in August 2020.

We can have fun doing anything and like to say we could have fun in a cardboard box.

Our Lives Now. We’ve been married for a year and couldn’t be happier. We love small road trips where we can sing along to the radio or listen to an audiobook or podcast together. When we are at home, we enjoy grilling out, taking walks around our neighborhood, watching documentaries or comedies, or playing board games while overlooking sunsets on our deck.

We like being active, watching sporting events (especially football) and traveling. We’ve traveled to Florida and Hawaii, as well as locally throughout Ohio, and we look forward to exploring many more places.

About Kristy, by Nick. Kristy is the kindest, sweetest, most generous, and caring person I’ve ever met. I admire everything about her, but most of all, I love her sense of humor. She is absolutely beloved by ALL of her friends. Kristy has a love for travel and adventure. She has snorkeled in Iceland, climbed mountains in Colorado, and traveled all over Europe. Kristy is also one of the most intelligent people I know. An attorney, she currently works for the Department of Defense as a Contracting Officer. She is able to work from home several days a week and intends to utilize the child care center at work when needed.

Kristy puts family before everything. I can only hope to be half as good a parent as I know Kristy will be.

Great parents for your child
We married in front of 20 of our closest family and friends. Even though it rained, nothing could have dampened our joy.

About Nick, by Kristy. Nick is a true gentleman and embodies chivalry in his life every day. From the moment we met, he impressed me with his genuine openness and kind character. He is always lending a helping hand. Nick has an instinct for service, so it’s no surprise he served in the Air Force for nine years. Today, he is an attorney at a prestigious law firm.

Nick is a hard worker and never one to shy away from a challenge — whether it’s running a half marathon or taking the bar exam. I admire his determination, patience and kindness. I already know he’ll be a great dad.

Family and Neighborhood. We chose our home and neighborhood with the intent of starting a family. We are in a good school district and have two playgrounds within half a mile of our home. Our neighborhood has lots of kids, and we love hearing them laughing and playing throughout the day.

We are very blessed to have supportive friends and family. We love to spend time with “the kids”— our niece and nephews. We do all sorts of things together.

Our parents are excited to welcome and spoil another grandchild (Grandma has already helped decorate the nursery), and our siblings are excited to have another a niece or nephew. Our friends are already imagining setting up playdates with their littles. Needless to say, your child will always have a lot of love and attention in our family.

Our Promise. We promise to give unconditional love to any child we are lucky enough to parent. We believe open adoption is best for everyone and will honor your child’s story, because every child deserves to know where they come from and who gave them life. Thank you again.

Most sincerely,
Kristy & Nick
