Thank you for taking a moment to learn a little about our family. We appreciate and respect the brave decision you made to be in this place today and the love you have for your child. God makes every child so precious and special, and we pray for you and for yours.
We met in 2005 in college in Pennsylvania. Our friendship and love for one another carried us through 6 years of living in different states and studying through different graduate programs. We were married in Maryland in 2012 in front of over 200 loving and supportive family members and friends. After 4 years of marriage, we had our daughter, Ella, now 4 years old. 2 years later we welcomed our son, Asher, now 2 years old. Chris is a Family Medicine physician in the United States Navy, stationed at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, where we call home. Tae is an attorney, realtor, and business consultant and currently works part-time so she can focus as a stay-at-home mama to our kids.
As a family, we enjoy exploring new areas and sharing new experiences together. Some of our favorite activities include hiking, biking, skiing, trips to the beach, and trying out new restaurants. We also share a passion for books and spending time with our extended families. Almost every Sunday for our family begins at morning church service and continues on to “Nanny and Pop-Pop’s” house where we are blessed to share the day with many cousins, outdoor play, and large family meals.
Our dream to adopt began as discussions while we were dating. We did not know then what God had in store for us but felt in our hearts that we were meant to meet one of our children through adoption. After 3 military placements each in different states, 2 biological children that bring us joy each day, and our steadfast, loving commitment to each other, we feel that it is the right time now to welcome our third child. We pray daily that God will guide us through this process and cannot wait to shower our next child with unconditional love and dedication. Our family and friends are also excited to welcome another member to our large family and ready to support us on the journey.
We pray that you feel support and God’s love through your decision-making process and thank you for allowing us to introduce our family to you and yours.
