Chris & Sarah
Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know a little about who we are as a family. We understand that adoption is a big decision and would like to give you some comfort and assurance during this process.
After Asher was born in 2016, we were very eager to have more children, but after many failed attempts, we knew we wanted to grow our family through adoption.
Getting to Know Us
In some ways, we have known each other our entire lives. Chris’ family lived next door to Sarah’s family and attended the same church. Chris was best friends with Sarah’s older brother, but never noticed Sarah as more than a friend until we were older.
We finally decided to start dating in our 20’s, and a year later, we were married in 2012. We have always wanted children, but early on in our marriage we were heartbroken to learn this would not happen naturally. We struggled with infertility and tried multiple procedures over the course of a few years.
We were fortunate to adopt a frozen embryo and were so excited to finally be having a baby. Asher has been our miracle baby and we are so excited to welcome another miracle into our family through adoption.
We really enjoy spending time together. We go to baseball games, take trips to the zoo, go kayaking and like finding parks with water or beaches so Asher can throw rocks in the water.
We vacation a couple times a year and these have included, spring training in Arizona, trips to Seaworld and the San Diego Zoo, and we always make an annual trek with Sarah’s family to Eastern Oregon for some fun and relaxation in the sun.
We enjoy being outside in the yard doing anything around the house. Chris owns a construction company so inevitably there is always a project going on and Asher gets involved with his tools as well. Thankfully, Sarah has great ideas and a fine sense of style which is needed when living with a couple of guys!

When we were 22 and 24 years old, Sarah’s brother was injured and while I spent time with my best friend, I also had the opportunity to be around Sarah and to get to know her more. Her wonderful smile and lively personality caught my attention. She always seemed to be laughing and enjoying the people around her. One evening as Sarah was making dinner and we were talking, I realized in that moment I wanted to marry her.
When she said yes to marrying me I was so excited. I couldn’t wait to start a family with her because I had seen the love and devotion she had toward children and I knew she would be the most wonderful mother. Since that day I have fallen in love with her more and more.
Sarah is beautiful, gentle and very caring. She has a calm demeanor and a wonderful smile. Her sense of humor is great, and she has a quick wit.
Before we were married, and to this day, Sarah has always loved children and never misses an opportunity to care for them. It was so wonderful to finally see her with our son. She’s a wonderful wife and the best mother anyone could ask for. The love and care she gives is a wonderful thing to see.
When she isn’t caring for Asher and I, she can be found in the garden or making dinner. I know she cant wait to share her hugs and kisses with Asher and our future child.

Although Chris and I have known each other our entire lives, it wasn’t until after high school I started to see him more in a romantic way. I looked forward to being with him every chance I had. His quirky sense of humor and devotedness were just a couple of the things that captured my heart.
On a chilly day in February we went for a dinner cruise in Seattle, Washington, and that is where he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife.
Chris is always making sure I am taken care of and that I have what I need. Being his wife has far exceeded my expectations about marriage.
He is also an awesome dad to our son and loves spending time with us. He is a loving husband, is very caring and selfless.
Chris owns a construction company and enjoys building anything, anytime he can. He loves to wear his tool belt as much as possible and get his hands dirty, which means he is constantly working on some project at our house. He often brings home his tractor and let’s Asher ride on it with him in the evenings. I know he will continue to be an amazing father and husband.
