|More About Our Family
|What Open Adoption means to us:|
We consider Belle-Rae’s birth family as an extension of our own. Belle-Rae’s birth mom lives out of state and we text, video chat, and call each other regularly. Every year we make time for a visit too! We have come to know each other well enough that we feel like good friends. We’ve even started some traditions between each other, just for us.
Our relationship has taken time and effort like any other, but the bond we formed with Belle’s birth mother has been one of the greatest surprises and blessings of open adoption. We welcome this kind of connection with you too, if you’re comfortable!
Chris grew up attending a Bible Church and Maggie was raised Catholic. We've attended different churches as a couple over the years and found our home with a warm, welcoming Presbyterian church in our town. Instilling a sense of faith and understanding of God’s love throughout a child's life is of the utmost importance to us.
We also have three friendly, playful cats, Bonnie, Jovi, and Maddon. They add another level of excitement to our day with their antics. Belle-Rae has really bonded with them and it’s amazing to see how protective and loving they’ve become toward her.
|What we love about where we live:|
Our neighbors love to host block parties, and there are holiday celebrations, decorating contests, egg hunts, and even a Santa parade that rides right past our house!
|We Prefer a Child Who Is...
