We want to be transparent and open with you throughout this whole process.
We are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to share our story with you. We understand the adoption process can be emotional and recognize we cannot truly understand what you're going through. But please know that should you choose us as parents, your child will be loved unconditionally and supported throughout their life. We understand that we will have much to learn and will grow as parents, but we are eager and committed to being the best parents possible.

About Us

We're a couple that knows how to have fun and embrace laughter. You'll often find us making puns and belting out our favorite tunes in the car, especially Disney songs. We both grew up in Pennsylvania and crossed paths while studying video production in college. What began as a friendship quickly blossomed into a loving, joy-filled relationship. In June 2018, we exchanged vows, and five years later, we are still totally “harmonizing” in the car. Chris is a communications manager, while Katie thrives as a video producer. One of Chris’s passions is coaching wheelchair basketball. Katie often joins for tournaments and loves spending quality time with family and friends. Whether it's kayaking, conquering escape rooms, or retreating to cabins, we enjoy all adventures together. We also relish in the comfort of our home and relaxing by a fire. We're excited to create a lifetime of memories filled with love and a spirit of adventure.

Our Home & Pets

We live in a quiet neighborhood in a three-bedroom, ranch-style house with a large backyard. The neighbors are friendly, with kids playing in the yards or biking in the street and walkers out with their dogs. One of our favorite things about where we live is that in 20 minutes you can be in the city or the country depending on which direction you head, and we can go to restaurants, shows, and sporting events or go kayaking and enjoy nature. Our cat, Pepper, enjoys lounging around the house and coming outside on our deck when we garden. One of our favorite yearly activities is inviting friends over to watch Hocus Pocus on an outdoor screen while roasting marshmallows around our firepit.

Our Extended Family

Family is at the heart of who we are, and we cherish the strong bonds we have with our loved ones. Katie comes from a large family consisting of three sisters, all of whom have children. Chris is from a smaller family, with just one brother. Living in close proximity to our families means gatherings are a frequent occurrence in our lives.

Some of our fondest memories together have been forged during summer cookouts at Katie’s parents’, where we play cornhole, laugh over shared stories, and watch the kids swim in the pool.

With seven nieces and one nephew, there is always a reason to celebrate. From birthdays to school activities and sports achievements, we find countless opportunities to come together. Watching the children play and grow is truly a gift, and their excitement when their favorite cousins walk through the door fills our hearts with warmth. We can't help but imagine the joy of adding one more cherished cousin to this beautiful mix.

What Led Us To Adoption

Embarking on the journey of parenthood through adoption truly fills us with an indescribable sense of gratitude. Our journey through infertility ultimately taught us we have an unwavering passion for becoming parents, and the opportunity to adopt has become a beacon of hope toward expanding our family. Our home is filled with open hearts, and your beautiful baby will be flooded with love, nurturing, support, and a profound sense of safety. We are just so excited to embrace all the wonders of parenthood and thrilled to embrace every moment, creating a life filled with abundant love, infectious laughter, and cherished memories.
