Chris & Katie
First Names Only:
Chris and Katie
Why we want to be parents:
We are currently parents to an amazing 7-year-old boy named Chase and would love the opportunity to give him a sibling. We have a strong desire to grow our family and would provide a stable and happy home to another child.
What activities we look forward to doing with a child:
We love traveling to different cities, states, and countries. Our son has been on 2 cruises, countless road trips, and so many amazing camping adventures. We would love to have another child to play with on the beach, see cool new places, and create new memories with.
The people/pets who make up our family:
Our family consists of ourselves, Chase, and our 12-year-old King Charles Cavalier Spaniel named Bones. We have a large extended family in which we are very close with. Any child we add to our family would be wrapped with so much love and support, and so many cousins!
Our ethnic/cultural background:
Katie is Hungarian, German, and English. Chris is Irish and of various Eastern European descent.
Family celebrations that are important to us:
ALL! We have so many annual family gatherings- of course holidays, but we have annual Family Hotel weekend, Family Canoe weekend, and Family Barn Dance to name a few. Our family lives very close, so we have impromptu get-togethers frequently.
Any religious identification:
Fun activities we like to do:
We love to watch Chase’s hockey games, travel, camp, get together with friends and family.
Where we live (city, rural, community):
We live in a 2-story colonial with an amazing fenced in backyard, backing up to the elementary school as well local park with several play structures and lots of deer and wildlife to see. We are located in Southeast Michigan, in a suburb of Detroit.
A few fun facts about each of us:
Chris owns his own business and just purchased a building. Chris is a licensed builder and loves to teach Chase how to build too! They also learn how things can be taken apart and used to make new things (robots, RC cars, etc). Katie is a Registered Nurse who loves to sew, craft, and volunteer at the school. Chase is a really great hockey player with a huge heart.
One thing we would like the birth family to know about us/why we would be good parents:
We want you to know our goal is to raise children with love, support, understanding, and compassion. Being parents is something we take very seriously and our child is the center of all we do, and are hopeful to add to our family to allow another child to have an amazing life as well. Your child will always be loved and cared for, and will have the means to achieve anything they set their minds to. We will encourage them to flourish, and they have a safety net of friends and family that will be behind them as well cheering for them throughout their life. Their life begins with you, and they will always know that you did the most selfless thing to make sure they had the best life possible.
