Friend and Pediatrician
Being the Christensen’s pediatrician is one of the highlights of my practice. Not only do I get to see their family in the office, but also on the basketball court as their daughter’s coach, at church and out to dinner as couples. I love the Christensen family — we've known each other for years. Mike and Ashley are hard-working dedicated people and parents. Mike is an outstanding doctor — he was part of my wife’s delivery team during her c-section. With the demands of his work, it can be easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle, but his family is his priority and I love that about him. Ashley is one of the best moms out there. She is attentive, kind, playful and selfless. As their pediatrician I have seen them work to make their kids' overall health and well-being a top priority. Their kids are lucky to have such great parents! I love their three kids Brinley, Leila, and Tanner. These are three fun, sweet kids that my own three kids love to play with. Whether it is playing tennis, basketball, swimming or making pizza, we always have a party with them. With parents as amazing as Mike and Ashley and three kids as welcoming as Brinley, Leila and Tanner, I can only imagine what joy they will experience adding another member to their family!
I met Mike and Ashely when my husband and Mike were attending medical school. While our husbands studied long and hard together Ashley and I quickly became very close friends. Though our paths parted a few years later as we went off to continue training in different states, our friendship has remained strong. Ashely and Mike are the kind of friends you have for life. They are loyal, loving and their generosity and kindness is limitless. They would do anything to help the ones they love. My husband and I have been very blessed to have them in our lives. Mike is an incredibly compassionate and dedicated physician who cares deeply for his patients. He is a strong provider for his family and ensures they know that they are his top priority. He is fun loving, hilarious, and a fantastic father and husband. He loves his family more than anything and it shows. Ashley is an incredible mother to her children and the most supportive wife to Mike. She is gentle, kind, patient and so much fun to be around. When you have a conversation with Ashley you know that she is truly listening. She shows that she cares for you in her words and actions. She loves her family fiercely and serves them selflessly. She leads and directs her children in a way that is strong but loving. While Mike and Ashley know how to work hard, they also know how to play hard. They prioritize quality family time by participating in fun activities they all enjoy. When we are with the Christensen family we always have a good time. Their home is full of laughter and joy. Mike and Ashley are both securely grounded in their Faith. They put God first in their lives and are Christlike examples to all around them. I know that any child will be blessed to be placed in their beautiful family and would receive endless love and support.
I have been fortunate to know and love the Christensen family for many years. Ashley has been one of my best friends for over 25 years. When I heard about their intentions to adopt a child to add to their family, my heart grew tender. The Christensen’s are an incredible family led by a “gentle giant” of a father and a strong, supportive and kind mother.
Mike and Ashley are a pillar of light in their community and have such a wonderful marriage. They love and value one another and it’s apparent to anyone that is around them. I’ve personally witnessed how they treat each other and it translates directly into how they treat their children. Their children are being raised by compassionate, trustworthy and patient parents who provide a loving and secure home for them. They are such confident, kind and happy kids and I attribute that directly to the way their parents have raised them and how they make them feel.
I would GREATLY recommend The Christensen family as adoptive parents of your child. Any child coming into their home would certainly feel loved, included and provided for.
I have known Mike since we were in Elementary school. For all of high school Mike and I spent as much time as we could together with our other friends. Mike has one of the biggest hearts of anyone I know. Always looking out for others and looking to serve. He met and married Ashley and Ashley quickly became a very dear friend of ours as well. Ashley is sweet, humble and very kind to all those who she meets. Their home is always a place I feel welcome and comfortable. They are terrific parents to their existing 3 children and my kids love being around them as they treat them as if they were their own. I couldn't recommend anyone any more than I do Mike and Ashley for adopted parents. I have now doubt they would be a huge blessing in some Childs life.
