We are extremely excited you are reading this and considering helping us become first time parents. We both are very loving and supporting of each other and hope to pass that same love, affection, and support to a child. We understand this is a very difficult decision and wish you strength, luck, and support as you search for the perfect family.
We are very fortunate living near the nation’s capital. Washington, D.C. is exciting and also educational. There are museums, monuments and festivals to go see. We also like going to the National Zoo and baseball games.
When we're not out and about exploring the city, sometimes a weekend can be as simple as taking a walk in the park next to our home or just enjoying some of our favorite movies or TV shows on the couch.
We’re also fairly active. Christine takes several yoga and pilates classes a week to stay in shape and be social. In the winter Chris likes to snowboard while Christine likes to read by the fire. We love the beach in the summer, whether it’s down in Florida with Chris’s aunt and uncle, at the New Jersey shore with family, or even somewhere more exotic like Hawaii or the Dominican Republic. Chris can normally be found surfing and Christine enjoys getting some sun. After a busy day, we also love sharing a scoop of ice cream or piece of chocolate cake!
Chris About Christine: Christine is caring, warm, and generous. I love that we complement one another so well and strengthen the areas where the other might be weaker making us both better rounded. Christine and I are truly best friends. Even hobbies that are more my own seem more enjoyable because I get to share them with her. She’s also great at making me a better person by encouraging me to challenge myself and showing me how proud she is at what I’ve already achieved.
Christine About Chris: Chris is a caring, affectionate person who makes me laugh. He’s my best friend and the love of my life. He’s going to be an incredible father and is an amazing uncle. He loves spending time with my niece Julia and nephew Vincent. Additionally he enjoys hanging out and playing guitar and drums with them. Chris loves to babysit his nephews and niece. To watch him bond with our niece and nephew puts a smile on my face. I can’t wait to start our own family together.
We met 4 years ago when introduced through our parents. We both grew up in the same area of New Jersey and our parents knew each other because of mutual friends. After talking a couple times over the phone and email Chris took Christine out on their first date at a restaurant both liked. We hit it off and every time Chris went home to visit his family or friends they got together. Chris was immediately struck by how outgoing, kind, and generous Christine was. Christine loved that he seemed to be an affectionate person and made her laugh. Eventually she even started taking trips of her own to visit and before you know it we were engaged and she had moved to Virginia.
Plans changed unexpected while Chris was still in the military. We had to put the big wedding we were planning on hold and get married quickly in front of just our parents before Chris got deployed to Afghanistan. When he returned safe and sound Christine had a beautiful wedding planned for all their family and friends. We renewed our vows on a beautiful day in April and the rest as they say is history.
