Hello & Welcome
Our message to a special person…
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. We hope this profile gives you a glimpse into our life and illustrates our dream of becoming parents. We are fun, outgoing people who believe that family and friends are essential to a happy life. We value experiences, making memories and time spent with the people we care about the most. We have always dreamed about having a child to grow our family.
Getting to Know Us
We grew up in Northern California. We met in high school and became good friends. We lost touch for a few years but reconnected after college. Our friendship remained strong and grew into a committed relationship. We have known each other for over 20 years and have been married for 5. Marriage is easy when you marry your best friend. We make each other laugh every day. This has become even more important due to our struggles with infertility. During this emotional time in our relationship we relied on our sense of humor, family and friends to help us through. We have discussed multiple fertility options to grow our family but we are always drawn back to adoption. We are inspired by friends who recently adopted and told us how it changed their life. We are looking forward to that same experience.
I am independent, compassionate, fun, a hard worker and have a good sense of humor. I love to travel and my job allows me to go to different places such as London and Southern California. I also have a flexible schedule which allows me to work from home a few days a week. When working from home, our dog Lani loves to “help me” by sitting on my lap or laying across the back of my neck.
A little bit about Chris
I am a family oriented person who is responsible, caring, motivated, humble, and confidant. I prefer to be outside. My career allows me to spend more time outdoors than behind a desk. I like to find humor in everyday life and activities. Whether it is cleaning the pool, putting away the dishes or working on my next house project, I will find the positive in every activity. I will most likely be listening to music while doing chores. Music is an important part of my life. Don’t be surprised if you hear me making up my own lyrics to a song on the radio about whatever I’m doing at the time. Leslie is my number one fan and loves hearing my funny, quirky songs.
We live in a beautiful neighborhood in Northern California. Our home is walking distance from a city park with a huge grass area, picnic tables and a large jungle gym with 7 different slides. We like to take our dog Lani on walks over to the park so she can play with her friends. We love to spend time with our family. We go on an annual snow trip with family and friends to Lake Tahoe. We’ve also taken family trips to Disneyland, Universal Studios, and to the beach. In the summer we spend most of our time in our backyard entertaining family and friends.
