Nathan & Christen Adopt

We are an active family of 3 in southeast Tennessee looking to grow our home through the love of adoption.

Dear Expectant Parents,
This is not about us but ALL about you and your sweet baby. We have such incredible admiration for you & are so grateful you have chosen life for your sweet baby, regardless if you choose us.
-
We want to help you through this process and be by your side from the start. It is our heart’s desire to provide a loving and safe home for your child and raise them from the beginning to understand their story.
-
Please read our story to see that we will be able to relate to your grief & walk through it with you.
-
Reach out to chat!
We would love to explore all possible options with you. We want so deeply for you to continue to be a part of your child’s life if that is what you want.
-
Please know that we are praying for you and your baby; that God will fill you with peace in whatever decision you make.
With Love,
Nathan & Christen

Who We Are

We met in the restaurant industry back in our college days. Our friendship eventually got closer and we started dating. 4 years later in 2008, we tied the knot in our hometown.
Both of us ended up going back to school to further our education so we waited awhile to start a family. Traditional adoption has always been in conversation with each other as we prepared to one day grow our family.
When we were married for 5 years, we decided to begin our journey into parenthood. We had an early miscarriage a few months in, but were incredibly blessed the very next cycle to get pregnant naturally with our son Keaton who is now 6 years old. When Keaton was 2.5, we started trying for baby #2 only to go on to have another early miscarriage, followed by another late first trimester loss. We then saw a reproductive endocrinologist who diagnosed Christen with premature ovarian aging. We honestly didn’t think we would be able to get pregnant naturally, but in after a lot of tears, prayer, meds, and supplements, 8 cycles later we got pregnant with our precious daughter Kamryn. She was born in December 2017, & Christen got her tubes tied due to the many pregnancy issues.
We were over the moon, until one night our daughter at 10.5 months old passed suddenly and unexpectedly in her sleep from unknown causes & was determined to be SIDS.
Our lives were forever changed & we were devastated to say the least. She was so deeply loved & will be forever missed. After counseling and research on the subject of adoption, we were able to match privately with 4 embryos. We did a frozen embryo transfer back in July 2019 only to again miscarry a baby boy at 10 weeks.
We knew immediately that domestic adoption was the way God was leading our family, & we returned the other 3 embryos to our donor for them to find another family.
We know that these babies will never be able to be replaced, but we continue to have such a strong desire to grow our family.
We have been home study approved and active with our agency since March 2020. We are also open to working privately with our attorney and the expectant family if they are not comfortable with using an agency.
We are praying for a rainbow & pray that we will be able to grow our family with the blessing of another child. The heartache we have experienced is undeniable, but our desire to have another child counties to remain the same. We are trusting in God’s direction for our family. We have so much love to give!!
Family and our children are our world. We are both very involved in our son’s life. Christen is a part-time working Mom so has good flexibility to volunteer at Keaton’s school, go on field trips, & make sure that he is doing well academically. Nathan’s schedule is great also as he works M-Th and occasionally rounds in the hospital on the weekends. We feel that our ability to co-parent well has nurtured our little guy to be such a sweet, thoughtful, social, & smart boy. We pray to be able to have the chance to contribute these attributes into another child’s upbringing.

We are a very active family. We are always outside. Health and wellness is very important to us. We love going to the beach 1-2 times a year, going on walks & hikes as a family, TN vols football, exercising, & playing baseball & games with our son. ❤️❤️❤️
