Hello family, friends, and even those we may not know! Thank you for taking the time to read a bit of our family story 🙂
We are Kyle and Kristine Fulks, and we are pursuing a domestic infant adoption in the U.S.! Early in our marriage, friends in our small group from our church were adopting, and as we walked through the process with them, we began discussing how we would love to adopt someday in the future. We assumed we would have biological children prior to adopting, but as we walked the road of infertility and realized that was unlikely to happen for us, our hearts were already open to adoption. While adoption is different from having a biological child, we do not believe it is the “second best” option. We can honestly say that while our journey has been difficult, this leg of it has been full of joy and hope. We pray every day for our future children and their birth families, and look forward to the days ahead as we form a new family!
Just a little bit of information about us! Kyle is a pastor who also coaches soccer for a local high school. Kristine works as a nurse and teaches dance classes part time as well. We met in college and have been married for 8 years 🙂
We have been blessed with a $3,000 matching grant through Lifesong for Orphans and one of their wonderful affiliates, Gregory’s Gift! We are so thankful for their partnership and support! As many people know, adoption can be quite expensive, and though we have been saving from our full time jobs, working part time, and taking whatever opportunities we can to earn extra money, we still have a gap in the funds we need. If you feel so led to donate towards our adoption expenses, we would be so grateful, but we are also so thankful for the outpouring of love and encouragement we have received from everyone!
Thank you again 🙂
Love, Kyle & Kristine
