Chris & Sara
Most importantly, we are forever grateful for the opportunity you are giving to us by viewing our profile! To us, adoption is such an amazing blessing and truly brings out the expression "everything happens for a reason". We have so much love to give & we are so excited to grow our family through adoption. To be selected to be your child's adoptive parents would mean the world to us!
Our Dreams for this Child
Our dream for this child is to grow up in a loving and safe environment. We will teach them love, respect, compassion and values. We want this child to have the passion and understanding to go for whatever they dream of doing and being. Whether that is playing sports, doing ballet or anything in between. We will love, support and encourage them every step of the way.
We have always dreamed of having two children. Sara is an only child and Chris is one of 3 boys, so we would love to have more than one so they can grow up with someone close in age to share the joys of childhood and life. Our hope is that we'd be able to eventually go through adoption for a second child.
As a family, we will have fun and travel often! We think making memories, whether it’s spending time with cousins, dinner with grandma, going to the lake, or taking a vacation is so important, especially as children start to grow and build memories of their own.
Fun Facts About Us
1. Chris wanted to be a farmer when he was a child.
2. Sara wanted to be a kicker for the NFL.
3. We have never broken a bone in our body. We hope that continues!
4. We received degrees in accounting from the same college.
5. We enjoy watching sappy Hallmark movies during the holidays.
6. We love Christmas – One of our favorite traditions is to go see Christmas lights at two close by parks.
7. We don't care for scary movies.
8. Chris enjoys gardening/planting and being in the great outdoors.
9. Sara has only been out of the country once in her life - but we hope to change that!
10. Our fathers and grandfathers knew each other before we met as they worked in the same industry.
We live in a neighborhood and community that continues to increase its cultural diversity. There are groups, events and festivals in our town and neighboring communities as opportunities to understand, support, and be a part of different cultures. While we understand we have one background, we are fully committed to welcoming another culture as our own into our family. We are excited to learn about our child's unique background and find ways to support their background as they grow up so they always understand and can embrace their whole self and uniqueness. Our family is also excited and open to embracing any cultural diversity through adoption and will be there to support and learn right beside us. We think it is important that a child is able to understand different cultures so that when they are older they can fully embrace their culture and also have respect and appreciation for other cultures as well.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a small suburb of a big city in Missouri. Our home is a 3 bedroom ranch with a large finished basement. We spend most of our time in the open living room, but we also enjoy watching our nieces and nephew play in a large den in our basement that we've dedicated as a toy room for the kids that visit. We have a pond where Chris regularly fishes and a newly remodeled playground in our neighborhood.
Our tight-knit community is one thing we love most about our town. We just had a beautiful brand new elementary school built just down the street in an award-winning school district. The community has been exceptional with lending a hand to others when someone or the town is in need. There are a ton of special events every year such as a homecoming, Fourth of July parade, Christmas tree lighting, and even a Scarecrow Festival during October for Halloween. Our town has many parks, pools and neat places that we can't wait to enjoy with kiddos! We would love nothing more than to get the opportunity to share our home and community with your child.
Our Extended Families
We have a large family and we cherish spending time and making memories with them. We have young nieces and a nephew who cannot wait to play with this child. They will enjoy seeing each other quite often as both sides of our families all live within an hour from us.
We enjoy spending time with Chris' extended family at the family lake house where many of our cousin's kids, nieces and nephew enjoy playing in Papa's treehouse and putting on a talent show for everyone to watch. Sara has a very large extended family as well that has numerous gatherings throughout the year and during the holidays. Just a few of our favorite events include: going to fall festivals, watching and going to sports events, cookie decorating for holidays, and birthday celebrations.
Our entire family is very supportive and are always there for us. This child will continuously be around cousins and friends similar in age to enjoy childhood and beyond with. Our family is over the moon excited for this adoption and your child will be welcomed with open arms and embraced with showers of love!
From Us to You
First, we want to say that you and your baby are loved beyond measure. You are so strong, and your journey is not taken lightly. We understand you have some tough choices to make and wish you the best of luck as you figure out what is best for you and your child. Know that we are thinking about you always and are there to support you every step of the way.
We have been together as a couple for over ten years and married for over four. When we got married, we talked about having both biological children and adopting. Over the past few years, we have gone through infertility treatments - from reproductive meds to IVF - in hopes of having our first child. However, we have been able to take a step back and truly reflect on how we want to grow our family. We sincerely believe that we were meant to adopt all along, and we couldn’t be more excited about this journey!
We started this journey with two pups (Roxy and Jax). However along the way, we took in a third (Angel) that needed shelter. Little did we realize that she was the perfect addition to our family & we couldn't imagine being on this journey without her! The love & bond they all share is inseparable. They give true meaning to the term "lap dogs." Jax likes his toys, Roxy likes her sleep, and Angel is right in the middle. They love cuddling, taking walks, having the cousins over & sleeping on the couches. They are a very big part of our family - we want your child to be able to grow up with dogs just like we did.
We have so much love, compassion and respect for one another and we promise to carry that love and devotion to a child. We also have a great support system all around us. Both of our large families and close friends live close by and we see them constantly whether it’s going to the lake, stopping at our local frozen yogurt shop, holidays or a relaxing move night in. Our friends and families are so excited to be on this journey with us and can’t wait to welcome a baby into our lives!
We promise to protect and provide a safe, loving and fun environment for your child to grow up in. We promise that they will always have the support they need through all stages of life. We promise to show them love, respect, dedication and passion. We promise to support them to pursue their passions. We promise to guide your child through hard work, determination and love to make sure they can take on any challenges that come their way.
We would really like to discuss what your wishes and desires are for the openness of the adoption - we promise to keep our minds open and will also respect your wishes as we all have the baby’s best interest at our forefront. We will send letters and pictures every year. We can also keep in touch through emails or phone calls with potential Facetime and future visits depending on comfort levels. It is very important to us that your child understands who their birth mom is and the only way we can do this is through you. We will always be open with your child about their adoption. We want them to love and respect you, just as much as we do!
We are starting our own adventure and hope you take this journey with us. We cannot wait to be the parents of your child and look forward to our opportunity together. We thank you so much for looking at our profile. We hope that you've gotten to know a little more about us, and we are looking forward to getting to know you!
