We are the Petersens. With the Danish spelling in the US, I sometimes feel like we are The Petersens, but that’s another story. I’m Jesse, 37. My wife, Kristin, 31, is beautiful, smart, and my way better half that I married up to. Our son, “Boy,” 6, is the extrovert, smart, caring, and we finalized his adoption back in May 2015 after being in our care for nearly 1,000 days. We celebrated his 3rd, 4th, and 5th birthdays before that. More on that in Our Foster Story.
Starting with the youngest, Boy is a freaking ball of energy and all boy. He started kindergarten this year and his first report card showed him “at level” for everything. He loves all cars and trucks, Spider-Man, Curious George, and math. He’s played two seasons each of soccer and baseball and is truly going to be a skilled soccer player.
