We have been happily married for 5 years and together for 7. Our relationship is built on a foundation of love, trust, respect and communication. As a couple we have laughed ourselves silly, cried on each others shoulders and most important- lifted each other up. We can truly say we are each others best friends.
Of everything in life we value family above all and have always been blessed to receive love and support from our families. We would like to pass this love and support to our child. We are lucky enough to have our families very close by. Dawns family is just a short drive away while Chris's family is just a few blocks away- some even within walking distance! Whether it is a holiday, Sunday afternoon or just to say hello, family gatherings are a common occurrence at our home. The child who blesses our lives will have 4 grandparents, 4 aunts and uncles and countless cousins waiting to love and spoil them. Our four nephews are so excited that they keep asking when the baby is coming.
We live in a lovely 3 bedroom home complete with a finished basement that doubles as a play area for our nephews. We have a big backyard with plenty of room for a play set or just room to play. Our neighborhood is very safe and we live on a quiet street close to many parks, community pools and activity centers, libraries, hospitals and great schools (the same where our nephews attend). One of the best things about our home is that we live in the same town Chris was born, so he has deep ties to the community. Many of his friends still live in town and are now married with families of their own.
When I first met Dawn I knew instantly she was the one for me. Her smile lights up the room and she always has a way of making people feel at ease. She is the most caring, kind hearted and loving person I know, always putting other peoples needs ahead of her own. She is constantly helping others and always doing special things for our nephews. She is an amazing aunt and our nephews just adore her. I know by watching them together that she will one day be an amazing mother to our own child. Dawn is a very special woman and has helped me grow into a better person. I am a better man today by having her in my life and feel lucky every day.
Chris is the kindest, most thoughtful, loyal and loving person I know and I am so grateful to have him in my life. I knew on our second date he was the one for me when he picked me up with a dozen mangoes because I had mentioned earlier that day that I didn't have any for breakfast the next morning (and I ate them every day!) He is very hardworking and will do anything for the people he loves. He is generous and funny and the happiest when we are with our family - especially our nephews who think he is the "best, goofiest uncle ever"! I know Chris will make an amazing Dad and I can't wait for that day. Did I mention he's a huge Cowboys fan?! Please don't hold that against him :)
