We are Chris and Devri and we want to thank you for taking the time to look through our online profile.

We are so excited and nervous as we embark on this journey towards parenthood… towards growing our family through adoption.

Since we met at eighteen years old, we have talked about adoption. Chris is an adoptee and has always wanted to adopt and Devri has a huge heart for adoption as well. When we discovered that getting pregnant naturally was not in God’s plans for us, we knew that it was God’s way of leading us towards adoption; towards a child we cannot wait to bring into our home and hearts!

The journey you are on cannot be easy and we want you to know that we respect and admire you for your decision to pursue an adoption plan. We will pray that God gives you the all the strength and support you need and we would love to be a part of you and your child’s story!

A bit about us:

We met at eighteen years old, our first day moving into the dorms. Friendship morphed into love quickly and our lives and families began to blend together. Chris proposed with a ring pop (and real ring too!) and we married after undergrad in 2011.

We feel lucky that God lead us to each other so early in life. We’ve been together for more than ten years, growing closer as best friends and partners. We love to travel, hike, run, kayak, and camp; basically anything we can do outdoors, almost always with our dog in tow. Indoors we stay busy with board games, having friends and family over, DIY projects, and hosting our weekly bible study.

We live nearby both of our families. We are very close with our parents, siblings and extended family and spend as much time with them as possible. We are very fortunate that our families are good friends as well. We often spend holidays with both families combined, which leads to a full and fun house! 

Chris (written by Devri)

Chris is a kind, thoughtful and generous person and I am blessed to call him my husband. He always puts others before himself and is the first to lend a helping hand to everyone he encounters! Chris is a landscape architect, working in an engineering firm, and is extremely creative and passionate about sustainability. Chris likes to bird hunt with our dog Remi, as well as hike, run, and travel. Chris is a natural with our nieces and with other children in our lives. I know he will be a kind and loving father.

Devri (written by Chris)

Devri is sweet, generous, compassionate, and dedicated. In all that she does, she looks for ways to help others. She has worked with children since she was a kid herself (nannying, teaching Sunday school, leading dance classes) and as she grew up, she found a passion for working with kids with disabilities. She has endless patience and loves to help kids learn and explore. Now, although she still gets to spend time with kids in other facets of her life, she works primarily with adults. Devri is a physical therapist working with patients with neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis. She has so much heart and skill for helping people regain their mobility. Devri loves to read and is a speed-reader. She is a world traveller and enjoys volunteering. Devri has been ready to be a mother for years and she is going to be an incredible mom. I cannot wait to watch her do what she has been meant to do for so long.

Our Promise

If we are chosen, we promise to love your child and raise them with the knowledge that their birth mother loves them and made a difficult and selfless choice of adoption. We will continue to let our faith in God guide us as we become parents. We will nurture your child in their hopes and dreams, providing them with all the love and opportunity that we can. We will surround your child with grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends who will be loving and supportive. In addition to Chris being adopted, we have cousins and friends who are adopted so your child will grow up with adoption being a normal and beautiful part of their life!

Thank you for taking the time to look through our online profile. Please ask Bethany to see our profile book if you are interested in learning more.

Whether or not we are chosen as adoptive parents for your child, you will be in our prayers!
