From time to time, we like to spotlight Catholic adoptive families. We’d like you to meet Chris and Anne, a hopeful Catholic adoptive couple living in California. We encourage you to read about their life in their own words. Here is what they have to say:

Our Life

We met in 2004 and got engaged after dating for a year. We’ve been married for fourteen years now and are still as happy together as we were on the day of our wedding!

From the beginning, we knew we wanted children but learned that it would be very difficult for us to have them on our own. Our hearts were open to adoption, but at the time, we were living overseas and traveling all over the world for work. Once we got settled in California, we opened our hearts to adoption once again and were blessed to adopt our daughter in 2019. We love being parents and we look forward to sharing our lives with your baby and making them a cherished and loved member of our family! We love to travel, go to concerts, camp, and enjoy playing and watching sports, especially baseball and football!

Meet Anne (by Chris)

Anne is selfless, loving, and my best friend. Anne’s sense of humor was the first thing I noticed about her. She is fun-loving and likes to hike, play sports, and watch movies. Her encouragement helps me every day and she is a loving, patient, and wonderful mom to our daughter.

Anne is a hard worker and an excellent cook. She is a great listener and has never met a stranger she couldn’t talk to. She taught herself to make custom furniture and recently made a custom table for her sister’s birthday – she can do anything! She is wonderful with children, and I know she is excited to teach your child all about the joy of reading and cooking.

Meet Chris (by Anne)

Chris is the most loving and caring person I know. He always makes me feel special and I know he’ll do the same for your children in our home. Chris is quick to laugh, loves being silly, and has a heart for children.

Chris loves flying and started his private pilot’s license when he was just eleven years old! Now he is lucky to be able to live his dream and do what he loves in the National Guard. The only thing Chris loves more than flying is family. Nothing makes him happier than coming home and spending time with our daughter playing games. He also enjoys playing football or Legos with his nieces and nephews. He is excited to teach your child all about flying and to support them in their own passion!

Our Family

Our daughter, Parker, was adopted in 2019 and she’s been such a blessing to us. She is a happy and inquisitive little girl and we know she will be a wonderful big sister and share all she’s learned to a little brother or sister!

We’re so excited to introduce your child to our families because we’re all so close. Anne has one sister and Chris has one sister and one brother. Chris’ parents have been married for 45 years and Anne’s for 52! We’re blessed to have six nieces and nephews between the ages of three to thirteen and love to have big family gatherings during the holidays and anytime during the year. Our families even go on vacation together! They are all so supportive of our adoption plans and are excited to meet your baby and include them in our family traditions.

To connect with us, please fill out this form and we will get back to you. We are looking forward to getting to know you!
