Nathan and Kim

Nathan and Kim are waiting to welcome a child into their heart and home through open adoption. Learn more about them!

Dear Birth Family,

Hi! It feels weird to start a letter like this, writing to someone we haven’t even met, sharing things about ourselves in the hope that you allow us the joy of raising your child! We do not even know where to begin, except to say that we are thrilled you are looking at this book and hope that you feel we would be a wonderful family for your child!

We have always dreamed of expanding our family, but due to infertility issues, we have been unable to. Being able to have more children through adoption is very exciting for us.  We are thrilled with the thought of having an open adoption to help maintain that connection to our child’s birth family culture, history, community, and heritage.

We want to thank you for taking the time to learn about our amazing family and for considering us as adoptive parents for your child.

Holt-Sunny Ridge will host the Journey of Hope Adoptive Family Camp for adoptees and their parents this summer!

This two-day family camp is designed around the Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI)® parenting curriculum for domestic and international adoptees and their families. Even years after their adoption, some children may struggle with behavior regulation, attachment and social skills. With specialized assistance from TBRI practitioners, this camp will equip families with tools and strategies they can use to help their child learn self-regulation skills and deepen family attachment. Other activities include fun sensory games, art and four hours of EAGALA equine therapy!
