A Letter from Chris & Anne
We are so excited to welcome you to our family! Our dedication to our faith led us to originally consider adoption and our close-knit
circle of family and friends has been so supportive along the way. We love to explore the great outdoors, attend shows, and watch sports. Our journey has been an exciting one for us and we would love to share it with you and your child.
We met back in 2004 when Chris moved to town to become an instructor at the same place Anne was attending her initial training.
We’ve been married now for sixteen years and are still as happy together as we were on the day of our wedding! From the beginning, we knew we wanted children but learned that it would be very difficult for us to have them on our own. After several years of waiting, we were blessed to adopt our daughter Parker in 2019. She has truly been a blessing in our lives. She is such a happy and inquisitive girl and she has helped us to see the world with new eyes as she learns and grows! As a family, we love to travel, go to shows and concerts, camp, and enjoy both playing and watching sports, especially baseball and football!
Anne’s sense of humor was the first thing I noticed about her. She is fun-loving and likes to hike, play sports, and watch movies. She is an excellent mom and takes wonderful care of our daughter! I know she is excited to welcome our next child into the family and share with them her passion for hiking and making others laugh.
Anne is selfless, loving, and truly puts others before herself which is what makes her a wonderful mother. She is a woman of many talents. She is a great Air Force officer and an excellent cook. She is easy to talk to and has never met a stranger. Anne has learned to make custom furniture and recently made the wedding cake for our friend’s wedding – there isn’t anything she can’t do! She is our nieces’ and nephews’ favorite aunt because she is so loving and patient with them.
Chris is the most loving and caring person that I know. He never fails to make me and our daughter feel special and loved. Chris is also dedicated to his work. As a young child, he already had the desire and drive to work towards becoming a fighter pilot in the Air Force. He got his private pilot’s license when he was just eleven years old! Now as an adult, he balances his career with time for family and friends. It was Chris’ playful side though that attracted me to him in the first place. Chris is quick to laugh and loves to relax and be silly, especially with Parker. He loves children and is an excellent father to our little girl. I know he is excited to share his love with our next child and looks forward to sharing with them the importance of being silly!
We are happy to call Central California home! We love the area and the people are so friendly. Our neighbors are mostly families with children of all ages. It’s incredible to live within a few hour’s drive of the ocean, national parks, ski resorts, and of course Disneyland! We live in a great four-bedroom home with a fenced-in yard and plenty of room to play. We’ve even got a fenced-in pool which we love to swim in all summer long. Our neighborhood is close to parks and there are biking and hiking trails all over town.
We share our home with our two loving cats! They both love to cuddle up with people.
Our daughter, Parker, was adopted in 2019 and is such a ray of sunshine. She is a happy and inquisitive little girl and we know she will be a wonderful big sister and that she is excited to share all she’s learned with a little brother or sister!
We’re so excited to introduce your child to our families because we’re all so close! Anne has one sister and Chris has one sister and one brother. Chris’ parents have been married for 43 years and Anne’s for 52 now! We’re blessed to have six nieces and nephews between the ages of one to eleven. We love to have big family gatherings during the holidays and anytime during the year when we can get together. Most of our family lives out of state so we visit often and communicate daily. They have all loved being a part of Parker’s life and are so supportive of our adoption plans. Our family cannot wait to meet your baby!
Our promise to you is that we will love your child with all that we are and support them always. We share a loving, happy home filled with laughter and joy and look forward to sharing that with your child. We will dedicate ourselves to your child’s growth and education and ensure that he or she has the opportunity to achieve all of their goals through encouragement, support, and the love of our close network of friends and family. We are happy to share photos and visits as your baby grows and look forward to making your child a part of our family!
