Kris & StephanieBack to search
We are elated to become first-time parents through adoption! We are excited to share many home-cooked meals around the dinner table, game nights filled with laughter, hiking trips, and bedtime stories together with your child. We are open to sharing photos, letters, and annual visits with you as you feel comfortable.
Our paths, unbeknownst to us, have crossed since we were young children. We ended up actually meeting as adults at a friend’s dinner party and very quickly realized we had found something exceptional with each other. We were married a year and a half later at our church and have been married for 6 years now.
We love coming home to each other every evening and having a delicious dinner cooked by Stephanie while talking about our days. Together we love to go hiking, dirt biking nearby in the mountains, working on home improvement projects, spending time with our sweet cat, and swimming in our pool. We have always wanted to grow our family and, after being unable to conceive naturally, we felt the tug at our hearts to adopt. We believe God is directing us to this new chapter in our lives and we are so excited to grow our own family in this way!
We look forward to sharing all we have with your child and thrilled to have them join us in our family routines! We anticipate many summer days with them splashing and laughing in our backyard pool with family.
About Kris from Stephanie
Kris has a humble confidence about him that draws people in. He is a stable, loving, adventurous man who encourages me to try new things and be spontaneous! Kris is always surprising me with new abilities and his eagerness to learn and problem solve. He is very athletic, a great dirt bike rider, and has also taught himself how to fix just about anything on his bike. Recently, he decided to make 4 large chairs for our backyard and was able to make them all without any plans!
Kris will be an amazing father to our baby. He has a warm, gentle way of sharing love with little ones and I know he is excited to share his love of dirt bikes, fixing things, faith, and learning with our baby. His work as a Commercial Real Estate Investor means he has a flexible work schedule that allows ample time to be together as a family. He looks forward to creating memories and traditions together with our child, like reading stories at bedtime each night.
About Stephanie from Kris
Stephanie has always impressed me with her passion for others, and how she goes out of her way to support people. Stephanie works as a preschool teacher and truly has a job she is excited for each day. She has an incredible impact on the lives of her students and I always relish in the moments when Stephanie shares thankful notes she receives from parents of her students. When not at work Stephanie loves gardening! We have quite the succulent farm at home with multiple pots and barrels with awesome succulent arrangements. Stephanie has taught me to appreciate gardening, cooking, and relaxing.
She will be an amazing mother who will create the best environment while also providing the tools and education for our child to be successful in life.
We both come from loving Catholic families. Our parents live only a few minutes away and Kris’s brother, along with his family, all live in the same town as us. Stephanie has three siblings who live in different states with their families, but we remain close with them! They all excited to welcome our new baby into the family!
We enjoy weekly family dinners, and often spend holidays all together as one large, family! Dinners are spent eating delicious food and enjoyed with lots of laughter. We are excited to share our Christmas Eve pajama tradition, along with Easter brunch and summer barbecues.
Our Home in California
We have a beautiful home nestled among large trees with 4 bedrooms, a pool, and a spacious yard for playing in. We have lived here for almost two years and have spent that time making it our own. There is a perfect bedroom set for your baby with lots of sunlight, and a beautiful view of trees in our backyard!
Our neighborhood is made of two small cul-de-sacs where neighbors are often seen walking or biking the street and stopping to say hello as they pass. It is in one of the top-performing school districts in the state and surrounded by many parks, libraries, outdoor activities, and a lake! It is also just a short drive from our parent’s homes, and our church!
Our biggest promise to you is that our love for your child is authentic and unending. We will encourage and support faith, a solid education, and pursuing their interests throughout life. Your baby will know how very loved they are, and will always have an understanding of who you are. We promise to provide a loving, stable home for them to grow and thrive in filled with family, dinners together and time spent making memories.

More About Our Family
Our Special Interests
We both love riding dirt bikes. Kris is an exceptional rider and self-trained mechanic. He can take apart a bike and put it back together perfectly! Stephanie enjoys riding, but more as a scenic rider. We also enjoy camping in the mountains and going on a yearly cabin trip with our friends to mountain bike and enjoy sharing fun stories from the year.
Stephanie loves to cook nightly dinners while Kris gets a fire going in our stove in the winter. We love trying new recipes that we come up with on our own.
Traveling nearby and out of country is also very important to us. We love visiting Baja, Meixco with Stephanie's family for dirt bike rides and exciting races! Trying new foods and meeting new people while creating new memories is something we want to always have be a part of our lives, and are excited for your baby to adventure with us.
We both were raised in loving, Catholic families! We even went to the same church growing up for a few years and didn't know until we met later on! Our Catholic faith is extremely important to us, and is our moral compass for daily decisions. Our faith, and God's love is foundational to our marriage! We love going to weekly mass with our families, and enjoying various traditions like dressing up for Christmas Eve mass followed by a big Christmas eve dinner. We are excited to raise our child in the Catholic faith, and to know of Jesus' love for them.
