Our names are Chris and Tanya and we are honored that you are taking the time to look at our online profile. We are a very loving and energetic couple filled with unconditional love, laughter, support, and security that we look forward to sharing with a child. Thank you for having the courage and love to place your baby for adoption. We promise to honor this gift every day for the rest of our lives. We will ensure that he or she grows to understand and respect your courage and selflessness and always knows how much of a gift he or she was to all of us.
We have been best friends since we first met in 1994 in college. For thirteen years we dated other people, or in Tanya’s case… got married for a few years… never finding the happiness we were both looking for. Then, in 2007, we both finally realized what all of our closest family and friends had been saying for years – that we would never find a more perfect match than we already had in each other. We’ve been inseparable ever since and were happily married in November of 2009. Over the last 19 years, we’ve built an unbreakable bond of love, trust and respect. It amazes us both every morning that we wake up more in love with each other than the night before. Our only missing piece is to share this love with a child.
We are both very close with our immediate family and have a large network of very dear friends who are as close as siblings. We were both raised in households where we simply became a part of our parent’s lives – experiencing and learning everything through and with them. Every moment was a chance to do or see something new and “mistakes” were merely opportunities to learn a different way. We will raise a child the same way… and cherish every minute of the life-long commitment.
We promise that we will….
~ love unconditionally
~ provide a safe and nurturing home
~ find laughter even at the worst of times
~ present an abundance of learning opportunities
~ support any interests or aptitudes
~ surround him or her with family and friends
…. and always, make sure that he or she knows the story of their birth and how much they are loved by all.
If your heart leads you to select us, we hope that you will look at our profile book and consider an opportunity to meet and learn more about each other. We wish you strength and faith in selecting the best adoptive parents for your unique personality and situation.
With all our hearts,
Christopher & Tanya

Why are you interested in building a family though adoption: (written by Tanya) Since I was a child, I’ve always wanted to be a mother. But for some reason, I never saw myself being pregnant. Two of my best friends were adopted, so the option always seemed like a natural fit for me. When Chris and I started dating, we discussed children at length. We both love kids and there was never a moment’s hesitation to plan for a family. Chris had always envisioned having a biological child, so we made the decision as a couple to try to get pregnant. Two years later, I finally went to a specialist and found out that I have multiple fertility complications – a few of which I have most likely had my entire life. Instead of pursuing complicated fertility treatments that would most likely not wok for me, we decided to adopt. Although it was an emotional decision to make as a couple, it feels like this was the path that I was always meant to follow.
Openness to Birth parents: We are open to a variety of relationships with the birth parents. We look forward to meeting you before the birth of the child and determining what works best for all parties involved.
Childcare Plans: We will both take off a few months following the adoption and then return to work. Our parents will help with childcare during the first year until we find a loving, reliable and educational childcare program.
