Thank you for taking a look at our Adoption profile book and for taking the time to watch our video. By both seeing our words here, and then watching our profile video, we believe you will have the opportunity to learn a little more about us, our neighborhood, community, family and our hearts. We are so excited to be a mom and dad, and hope as you get to know us that you will consider an adoption plan that includes us. Separately and now together, we always knew that we wanted to be a mom and dad. Chris had a wonderfully blessed experience as an adopted child. We believed early on that God’s path for our family was to grow it through adoption. We are thankful to you for spending some time with our book and video. We are ready to expand our family through adoption, and are so enthusiastic about bringing a child or children into our home, neighborhood and family. We know creating an adoption plan can be an overwhelming decision. Know that we are well prepared to love, protect and cherish your child. We will do everything we can to make sure she or he has a wonderful childhood, a wonderful education and wonderful opportunities throughout life.

More About Our Family
Chris and Angel value faith and then family above all else. Both of us come from incredibly supportive and loving, close families. We are at 18 and growing in the number of cousins our new adopted son and/or daughter will have. Angel’s family is close, both in their relationships and geographically. Moving to the northern suburbs, she is how the furthest away of her siblings to her parents. The rest, and all of their kids are within about 10 minutes of grandma and grandpa. We’re about 30 minutes away. Chris’ parents are retired up in central Minnesota on the lake. We and Chris’ sister’s family spend as much time as they can throughout the year on the lake together. We are so excited to have our son(s) and/or daughter(s) with us on the water in Northern Minnesota during the summer. The outdoor beauty of this state our amazing lakes is something we cherish as a family. As we type this, we are thinking about our young son or daughter catching their first fish or learning to ski. Our families are an amazing support system for us in our adult lives, and will be amazing grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins for whoever we are blessed to bring into our home.
More About Chris
Chris is the best thing that has happened in my life. From our first date I knew he was special and that God has blessed me through him. Chris leads by example of what it looks like to be a man of God. He’s dedicated to helping children find forever homes, he servers the local community for those in need and regularly studies the teaching of Jesus. Family is also a high priority in Chris’s life. He rarely misses a family event on both my side or his. In fact he pushes me to attend events that I may not think are as important, such a sport game for a nephew. But when we are there and see our nephew’s excitement, I’m happy that Chris values that time with family. He is also very supportive of me and ensures my needs are met. At home, Chis is the cook and is very good at it. Every summer he attempts to grow a garden and will eventually figure out a way to keep the deer and rabbits out. He’s really funny and quick witted. I find myself laughing a lot when I’m with him. We enjoy going to sporting events, especially the Wild, attending concerts and up north to go boating.
More About Angel
Angel is an amazing person, an amazing wife and is going to be an awesome mom. Even after a couple of years together, there are times when I privately think to myself, “what am I missing, she can’t possibly be this cool.” But she is who she is, and I fall in love with her again and again every single day. Angel is incredibly laid back and caring. Growing up, I had often read and learned, “don’t sweat the small stuff, and it is ALL small stuff.” That is the way Angel lives her life. She is incredibly driven professionally, but knows that faith and family are the priority over everything else. When she moved in to what is now OUR home, I took her 30 minutes away from her parents, siblings, nieces and nephews. Her family is close, both geographically, and in how they care for each other, and we have an amazing support network in them so close to us as we prepare to grow our family. She has quickly become well loved in our neighborhood, and between the vast network of friends she brought to our marriage and the wonderful friends we have here in our community as a married couple, we are incredibly well set up to bring an amazing child into our home. She’ll probably be more likely than I to kick a soccer ball around or play catch with the football with our adopted son or daughter, and I know that she is excited to integrate our child and hopefully children into the many many nieces and nephews she brought into our family. I couldn’t be more thrilled to see the big smile on her face I know will be there when some amazing mother and father choose us to be the parents of their child. Just thinking about it puts a smile on my face.
