Adoptive family

Dear Birthparent,

Thanks so much for reading a little more about us. We are Chris and Katie. We have a 3-year-old daughter, Adelaide, and a 1-year-old son, Copeland. We live in Cincinnati, Ohio. Chris is a creative producer at Drive Media House and Katie is a part-time postpartum nurse at UC Medical Center. We have been married for 6 years!

Chris and I and the kiddos are so excited to be growing our family through adoption! We believe that adoption is beautiful, but we recognize it is difficult, brave, and selfless for the birth parent(s), and we respect you for choosing adoption. No words can express how honored we would be to be chosen as parents for your precious child. We understand that openness in an adoption is important, and we are excited for the relationship our child will have with us as their parents as well as having a connection to their birth parent(s).

Adoption is something so tied to us because we believe we’ve been adopted into the kingdom of a good Father. Our family has a mission statement which is, “We will view our family as a gift from God through abiding in the Spirit. We will serve in humble love, offer offensive grace, break bonds of slavery, lean into the wild and unknown, and actively seek restoration.” We have a desire to grow our family and to raise them in this manner.

Ready to adopt

Our family is super excited about having another child through adoption. Whenever we ask Adelaide if she’s ready to be a big sister again, her face lights up and she starts asking so many questions (as any three year old would do)! Both of our immediate and extended families are so excited and supportive of us growing our family through adoption! Chris’ family lives here in Ohio and Katie’s family is in Arizona, but we see them often when they travel here to visit or vice versa! There are many cousins too who can’t wait to have another cousin to love on!

We love to travel and learn about new cities and cultures. Chris loves theme parks and rollercoasters and sharing these experiences with our kids! We love good food, good coffee, and introducing new food to the kiddos, whether it’s cooking something fresh or going out to a restaurant. Katie loves to bake and recently has enjoyed having Adelaide as her assistant. We love being outside and doing outdoor activities such as going to the park, the zoo, walks around the neighborhood, biking, and water activities. We can’t wait to share these experiences with this child as well!

loving family would like to adopt

A little about Chris from Katie: Chris is an amazing dad! He is full of love and joy, it’s infectious. He cares about all the little things and makes it a priority that the kids are fully known from their feelings to their new dance moves. He makes the kids belly laugh and he holds them tight when they cry. He runs and chases the kids and lets them “tackle” him to the ground. Chris is so much more than just a fun dad though. He leads our family. He makes hard decisions and does not back down. He is a loving and devoted husband. He cares so much for his friends. He knows that in order to teach his children about love, he needs to demonstrate love. Chris is a man who loves God and who ultimately finds his identity in Him.

A little about Katie from Chris: Katie has always wanted to be a mom. She has a natural gift for loving kids, and that has become more apparent since we’ve had our own two kids. She loves the kids with pure unbridled joy! She could be hanging out with them for hours, and then see them flash a smile, and it puts her on cloud nine again. Katie is so nurturing and is always right there to wipe the tears and kiss the boo boos. She is encouraging and builds our family up. Katie aims to be an image of Jesus not only to our kids and family, but to everyone she comes in contact with.

Thanks so much for reading our story, and we hope we get to be a part of yours too.

Our Family at a Glance

We live in Cincinnati, Ohio. We work as a creative producer and nurse. Our hobbies include outdoor activities, baking, theme parks and spending time with friends and family. We’ve been married since January 2014. We believe in a good good Father who has a never stopping, never giving up, unbreaking, always and forever love towards everyone. He adopts us as His own and we want to live by His example. We also believe openness in adoption is in the best interest of everyone, especially the child.
