Jeff + Christa
We want to thank you for taking the time to learn a little about us! We cannot begin to imagine what this journey has been like for you and admire your courage and strength. We hope this will give you a snapshot of who we are, and most importantly, the life your child would have growing up as part of our family.
This is Our Story
Our life together began over 11 years ago. Although, we knew each other through mutual friends, we did not begin a relationship together until a Halloween costume party that we both attended. We were dressed up with our friends when we, literally, ran into each other. We started talking and catching up and then spent the next 2 years learning about one another and enjoying each other's company. We complimented each other well and both wanted the same things in life and have so much fun being together. It was clear quickly that we fit perfectly. We were married about 2 years later in Hawaii, on the Island of Kauai with our close family and friends by our side.
Early on in our relationship we both discussed the importance of having a family, whatever way, including adoption. After trying for quite some time and exploring all options, it was clear the traditional way was not for us. Although infertility was a challenge, it has brought us closer and has made it clear that adoption was the way for us to build our family. We are so eager to start this new and exciting chapter as parents!
Jeff - by Christa
Jeff is always supportive and has a great sense of humor. He makes me laugh and balances me in so many ways. He is outgoing and helps me feel more comfortable when I feel shy. He is adventurous and helps build my confidence to try new things. He is warm and loving with a very playful side. Our nieces and nephews absolutely love being silly with Uncle Jeff! He works hard and aims for success in his career but has a good balance of work/home life. He has a calm and relaxed demeanor that helps create a happiness around him.
Christa - by Jeff
Christa's limitless potential, vast intelligence, and independence are just a few of her many traits that made me fall in love with her. From the moment that we met I knew that she was the person for me. She has a way about her that makes you feel safe and loved. She is one of the most determined and hardest working people that I have ever meet. She puts everything that she has into everything that she does. Family is most important to Christa from the way she reminisces about her great grandparents to how she plays with our nieces and nephews. Becoming a parent and growing our family will complete her.
Furry Four-Legged Family
We have always had dogs. In fact, when we were first dating, we both had 2 dogs of our own. It was quite the party when we got our fur babies together! As they all passed over time, we found our way to Ellie and Finley, two spunky Sheebas! They are two years old and are brother and sister. They love going to the dog park, going for walks or playing ball in our back yard! Most of our days end with snuggles on the couch!
Our home has the perfect bedroom to grow up in and plenty of space for playing including a spacious yard for outdoor activities! We enjoy spending weekends in our pool during the summer. Our neighborhood and town are family friendly with many parks within a short drive or walk.
Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit about us. We can promise that you will have a very special place in our hearts and our family for giving us this incredible gift and we will always have that bond. This child will forever know the courage and love you have for them. Our children will be loved unconditionally and grow up in a safe, accepted and happy home.
