Thanks for taking the time to get to know us and our family better. Our first daughter, Lily, was adopted so we know firsthand how beautiful but also bittersweet adoption can be, and greatly appreciate the difficulty of your decision. The experience was amazing and we firmly believe God orchestrated all of the moving pieces to bring Lily into our lives. We love her so much and can’t imagine life without her. In finding Lily, we found a deeper love as a couple and a deeper trust in God and his plan in our lives. We believe we are called to be adoptive parents, and as our calling, we strive to the best parents we can be. Struggling with infertility for years taught us to cherish each moment, each hug and kiss, and each milestone we’ve experienced thus far. Our philosophy as parents is to spend meaningful time together, provide a safe home, provide a good education, and ensure your child knows he or she is loved unconditionally, just as God loves us.
Get To Know Us
We are high school sweethearts and have been married since 2005! Our marriage is a partnership founded on friendship, mutual respect and most importantly, love. Since we got married early (at the age of 23), we’ve been through so much together including graduate school, multiple moves, settling down in our careers and finally, being parents. Before we ever started dating, we were friends and throughout our years together, remain best friends. Chris: Chris works as a youth director part time and stays at home with Lily part time. He’s a super dad! His hobbies include playing guitar and watching movies. His favorite movie is Shawshank Redemption and favorite show is Parks and Recreation. Mona: Mona works as a clinical pharmacist and volunteers as the Nursery director at church. She enjoys reading, yoga/Pilates, and listening to audiobooks and mystery/crime podcasts. Her favorite book is To Kill a Mockingbird and favorite pastime is playing and laughing with Lily. Lily: Lily is a super friendly, smart, fun loving, and adventurous little girl! She goes to school twice a week and enjoys lots of playdates with friends, crafts, playing “Princess,” and practicing her letters. She has the best, most infectious smile and is a joy to all around her.
Our Home & Community
We have a one story, 4 bedroom house with plenty of play space for little ones and a large backyard. There are 2 parks within walking distance and the local library is very close, both of which have family friendly events throughout the year. We are very lucky to have all of our immediate family close by, which means a lot of family time! Along with that, we are active in church where there are many other young kids and lots of community events we attend. Mona grew up in a tight knit community and has maintained deep rooted friendships with many childhood friends; in fact Lily’s best friend is Mona’s best friends’ (whom she’s known for 30 years!) daughter. It is a beautiful thing to see these relationships blossom and come full circle. We have been blessed over the years to receive unconditional love from these wonderful people, and have seen them extend that love to Lily. We have no doubt they’ll welcome the next baby with open arms and hearts as well.
