Robert & Christy

We cannot imagine the immense emotions you must be experiencing. All we can say is we too are going through a door that represents change; however, this change holds the potential to be a joyous experience and an opportunity to build an extended family outside of our own.

For reasons unknown, God has not allowed us to conceive. You on the other side may be wondering why God allowed you to conceive, thus having to make a difficult decision. However, here we are together, each able to help the other and ultimately provide a child with all the love and care they could ever hope for. It’s amazing to see how God can take a difficult situation and turn it into something good! Though this fact is encouraging, we still know that difficult decisions are ahead.

We adopted our son Noah in 2012 through a wonderful agency. He has proven to be the greatest blessing we’ve ever received as a couple. Though there are challenging days and moments when you can’t imagine yourself any more exhausted, just hearing him giggle or crack a smile makes it all worth it!

We have been praying that the Lord would place another child in our arms. We hope you will also pray that He will show you the family He would have your child join. As much as we want to dedicate our lives to raising another child, we above all else, want you to be at peace with your decision. We commend your bravery as you consider your child’s future! And we wait with great anticipation to see what wonders lie behind this door for us both.

About All Three Of Us:
Christy – Growing up, Christy was a very active girl who enjoyed sports, especially basketball and soccer. She was also a very social person who possessed the ability to connect with nearly anyone. As a result, she made many friends, most of whom she continues to keep in contact.  As a mother, she greatly enjoys staying home with her son, watching him develop as she teaches him both socially and academically. Despite her busy schedule, Christy continues to pursue interests such as music (choir and violin), photography, gardening and physical fitness.
Robert – Robert was also an active child, growing up in a family that enjoyed the outdoors. In high school, he joined the baseball and soccer teams and loved every minute of it. To this day, he continues to play softball with various teams in his region. Despite being a busy professional, Robert makes sure he spends ample time with his son so as to enjoy every phase of his life. He loves getting physical (wrestling and running) but also sharing quiet moments where he simply gets to know the person his son is developing into. When not working, Robert enjoys pursuing interests such as physical fitness, softball, hiking and home improvement.
Noah – Despite being an unemployed four year old, Noah manages to keep himself quite busy! He spends a lot of time constructing various Lego contraptions, which provide hours of endless fun. He also has a tremendous appetite for learning, especially when his mother wraps learning and fun together! Noah has a wonderful personality and seems to have a developing funny bone as he constantly tries to crack us up. When not playing, Noah enjoys pursuing interests such as gutter ball (bowling), movies, sculpting (play-doh) and food critic (well, ok, candy critic).
