We met at church through a group of friends. While Emily was the first to see the potential for more, it wasn't until Chris’s family went through a crisis and his first response was to call his friend Emily that she caught Chris’s attention. She was so warm and caring Chris couldn't help but ask her out. We dated, ate a lot of food, fell in love, and got married in 2012. Chris is a lead software engineer for a healthcare company, and Emily is a communications operator. In her free time, Emily loves playing video games, helping out with Sunday school, and being on the worship team. Chris also loves video games and helping out at church but has recently picked up woodworking. From the beginning, we have wanted to start a family. We can’t wait to open the next chapter of our lives through adoption.
We live in a quiet suburban neighborhood. Behind our house is one of the area’s best elementary schools. We have nearly a half acre of property that joins up to a public park with a field for soccer and baseball. We have a four-bedroom, two and a half bath ranch home with a finished basement that is perfect for family activities such as game nights and movie nights.
My friends and family often describe me as very nurturing and caring. I am gentle and they feel safe to be around me.
I am described as hard-working and a problem solver. I also love serving others whether it's at church or just helping with projects. I'm also a big kid at heart so that's why kids love being around me.
