Valentine's Day 2018: The Dawson Family

Dawson Family

Dawson Children

For Valentine’s Day, we at Ingersoll Rand want to celebrate the Dawson family’s love story. John Dawson, sales director for Trane Residential, has been with Ingersoll Rand, a world leader in creating comfortable, sustainable and efficient environments, since 2003. After John and his wife, Kristen, had their biological son in 2010, they were unable to have another child of their own, so after several years of trying, they decided to explore adoption. The Dawson’s found help and resources from talking with friends and co-workers and began their process in early 2016, and were matched with a birth mother domestically in April of 2017. They learned that every adoption story is beautiful, unique and full of ups and downs and challenges, but having the support of a great organization like Ingersoll Rand was a blessing. The financial reimbursement program that Ingersoll Rand provided was seamless and John and Kristen could not believe how fast it was processed. The Dawson’s welcomed Grace into their family in August, and she celebrates being 6 months old this week. Happy Valentine’s Day from our Ingersoll Rand family to yours!
