About Us

We met at church through a group of friends. While Emily was the first to see the potential for more, it wasn’t until Chris’s family went through a crisis and his first response was to call his friend Emily that she caught Chris’s attention. She was so warm and caring Chris couldn’t help but ask her out. We dated, ate a lot of food, fell in love, and got married in 2012. Chris is a lead software engineer for a healthcare company, and Emily is a communications operator. In her free time, Emily loves playing video games, helping out with Sunday school, and being on the worship team. Chris also loves video games and helping out at church but has recently picked up woodworking. From the beginning, we have wanted to start a family. We can’t wait to open the next chapter of our lives through adoption.

Our Home & Community

We live in a quiet suburban neighborhood. Behind our house is one of the area’s best elementary schools. We have nearly a half acre of property that joins up to a public park with a field for soccer and baseball. We have a four-bedroom, 2 ½-bath ranch home with a finished basement that is perfect for family activities such as game nights and movie nights. We have three sweet tabby cats. Wall-E is our oldest, and while he takes a while to warm up to new people, he is the most affectionate. Sundae is our little hunter but is as sweet as an ice cream sundae. Gandalf is a playful fur ball who won’t say no to a treat.

Our Thoughts about Parenting & Adoption

As we imagine ourselves as parents, we see family dinners, holidays, and birthdays. We see first steps, first words, and first days of school. We want to support your baby through all their firsts and prepare them for a bright future. We believe education is important and will do everything we can to help them identify and pursue their passions and gifts. Just as important as education is fun—whether we are making snowmen in the winter, visiting water parks in the summer, or getting lost in corn mazes in the fall! We will cherish every moment. We want to assure you that we will teach, nurture, support, and, most importantly, love your baby with all of our hearts, if you choose us.
