Hello and thank you for looking at our site. Words cannot express how grateful we are that you are taking the time to read a little about us. Through this site we hope you see the love we have for each other, our families, and life. All of this joy is waiting to be shared with a child. We are so inspired and appreciative of the courageous decision you are making. It is incredibly honorable, loving, and selfless. We are praying for you, knowing how difficult this decision must be. No matter who you choose to parent your child, know that by choosing life we feel you are making an admirable decision.
We were both born and raised in Kansas. Chris in the North and Venessa in central Kansas. We met when we were eighteen through mutual friends, and our friendship quickly grew into something more. After dating for nearly four years Chris proposed and we were married the following fall, in September 2005. We have always had a strong desire to grow our family, but over the last seven years we have walked through infertility. This journey opened our hearts to understand the gift and blessing of adoption, and grew in our hearts a strong desire to grow our family through adoption. Having a child for us to love and nurture would be a dream come true.
