How We Met (by Wendy)
Chris & I first met at a small restaurant in my hometown in 2010. I was the waitress that waited on him and his family when they came to eat. He immediately caught my eye. In 2011 he returned to eat with his family and I boldly asked a lady at the table about him. His mother replied proudly, "that is my son." As he and his family left the restaurant, my friend chased after him to get his number for me. My friend returned with a phone number and note from his sister, "He really likes you." I called him the next day, we talked for two hours, and our first date was the following week. For the next year & a half, Chris drove an hour and 45 minutes to see me. Chris was the first and last man I will ever pursue. Two years later we were married. Since then our love continues to grow. We are so excited to share this love with our child.
A Little Bit About Us
I have a degree in Civil Engineering. I am the oldest child in my family. I have a sister, Kelly, who is 2 years younger than me. She and her husband Justin have two children, Natalie and Will. Natalie is six years old and loves singing, dancing, and the movie Frozen. Will is three and loves trains, Paw Patrol, and Thomas the Tank. My parents are David and Karen and have been married for 38 years. We all live in the same town and visit each other frequently. Spending time with my family is very important to me. Wendy & I cannot wait until we have a child to share with our families.
I am a nurse in a busy Emergency Department. I am the baby in my family. I have a brother that is 10 years older than me. He has been in the military for 19 years. He has three beautiful children, Natalie, Kulan, & Corinna. Corinna is the oldest and is now serving in the Army just like her dad. My niece Natalie has a great sense of humor and loves animals. My nephew Kulan is super smart & loves computer design. Chris & I enjoy visiting with them and take advantage of our time traveling to see them. When Chris & I got married I was blessed with another niece named Natalie & and nephew named Will that live locally.
My father and I are very close. He always makes me laugh and we share a love of music. My mother passed away when I was in highschool. I got my free spirit and love for people from her. I remain close with my mother's family - she was one of nine so I have a very large extended family. My family is very supportive of our decision to adopt and are eager to meet our child!
Wendy - One of our first dates was a strenuous hike up the side of a mountain. By the time we got to the top my hair was matted, my clothes were wet with sweat, and my face was red. When he put his arm around me and pulled me close to enjoy the view, I thought this guy may very well be the ONE. Since then we have conquered many mountains, had our toes in a lot of sand, and put many miles into a life that brings us happiness and togetherness.
Chris - One of my favorite memories is traveling across Canada with Wendy. We had just got married and it was our first trip as husband & wife. We were in a different city/town each night. We traveled to places only accessible by train. We saw sand & snow on the beautiful Rocky Mountains. We took a gondola ride, rode in a helicopter, and walked on a glacier. There were many times during that trip that I thanked God for the opportunity to see & do so many things. Most of all, I am grateful to have someone so special to share my experiences with.
Wendy - We have so much love to share with a child. I know that when the time comes that we are able to raise a child, my husband will be a phenomenal father. I cannot wait to see how our hearts and family grow!
Chris - Wendy & I have discussed adoption since our first date. We both love our families dearly. We are so excited about having a child to share with our family. We want nothing more than to give our child a life full of love and support.
We are so grateful for you taking the time to look at our profile. As adopting parents we promise to do our very best to provide a supportive & nurturing life for your child. We are so humbled that you would consider trusting us with such a precious gift.
