Hello! We are Bart and Kris. Thank you for spending some time to get to know us. We hope this information will help you decide if we might be the right fit for you during this very emotional time in your life.
We are both Colorado natives and love living in this beautiful place.We met online in 2001.We hit it off immediately and have been together ever since.We got married in 2004.We have a house in Westminster on a quiet cul-de-sac where several kids safely ride their bikes in the street in the summer.
We enjoy a lot of the same things. We spend a lot of time outdoors walking, hiking, cycling, camping, kayaking, skiing, swimming and SCUBA diving. Several years ago, we trained for and rode Ride the Rockies together. This is a 450 mile bicycle tour through our rocky mountains with about 1,200 riders for about a week.That was an amazing experience. We also enjoy traveling. We’ve been to many of our National Parks, and we’ve also been to Oregon, California, Canada, Mexico, Australia and many other places.We enjoy reading, watching movies, and learning – our profile picture is from a cooking class we took last year.We can now make an amazing Moroccan Turkey Meatloaf :)
We both work with computers. We’ve each been in our respective Information Technology jobs for over 10 years.Kris was a computer programmer and is now a Manager and Bart is a Network Engineer.
Several years ago, our friends and close family members started having kids. The more we spend time with them and their kids, the more we realize how fulfilling that is and we would love to have kids of our own to teach, play and laugh with, and watch grow. We learned after a few years of trying, however, that we are not able to have biological children. Our child will know his or her adoption story which will include as much about you as you are comfortable sharing.
They say it takes a village to raise a child and we have one.We have close family in the Denver area, as well as in Arizona, and they support us in this journey.On Kris’ side, we have two nephews, ages nine and six, and one niece who is six.On Bart’s side, we are about to have another nephew in April 2019.
Thank you for your time,
Bart & Kris
