Our Hopes for an Open Adoption

Our Happy Family at Home

We learned the importance of open adoption through personal experience when we became parents for the first time and welcomed our son, Julian, home. We feel very blessed to have a loving and respectful open adoption relationship with members of his birth family. We keep in touch regularly through email, text and phone and we make a special visit to see them each year. They are great people and we feel very lucky to have them in our lives.

We want the children to grow up knowing where they came from and that they are loved by so many people. It is our hope that the relationship we form with you will endure throughout life and bring happiness and comfort to your child. Your child will always know how much you love him/her and that he/she was placed for adoption in an act of true love. It is our hope to stay in touch with you throughout your baby’s life, if you are OK with that as well. You will always have a special place in our lives.

We hope to hear from you and begin a relationship that enriches all of our lives. We look forward to hearing from you and getting to know you.

Qualities We Love, Admire and Respect in Each Other

We Enjoy Being Together

Lexie About Chris: Chris is the most kind-hearted, happy person I know. The first thing I noticed about him when we met was that he was always smiling – and that’s still true today! He is caring with an easy-going attitude. He’s the guy who gladly lends a hand by waking up early on a Saturday to take you to the airport or hauling furniture when you have to move.

Chris is the best dad! I always knew Chris would be a great parent, but seeing his dedication, love and happiness each day melts my heart. Chris has always been involved in everything: changing diapers, middle of the night feedings, singing songs and bath time. He and Julian love to ride scooters to the park and keep a lookout for the ice cream truck! Chris encourages Julian’s second language skills by reading Spanish storybooks to Julian every night; It’s a special time that they both look forward to.

Chris About Lexie: Lexie is a loving wife, an amazing mom and my best friend. She has a great sense of humor and enjoys making everyone laugh. Kids love her silly songs, funny faces and her enjoyment of playing sports. She is deeply caring and giving, always finding ways to bring happiness and give encouragement to others. She’s dedicated to living a healthy lifestyle and takes pride in organizing activities and creating a love for cooking in Julian by including him in preparing meals for our family.

Our Life Priorities

We have always valued the relationships we have with our siblings and believe life is more fun when you grow up with brothers or sisters.

Being home and engaged with the kids is important to us. Chris’ job with the Navy allows him to work close by and to be home by 4 p.m. so we have time to play and have dinner as a family. He’s looking forward to coaching kids’ sports teams as they grow.

Some of our priorities as parents include bilingual education, lots of fun, and family time. We are athletic and active. We enjoy spending time at play and traveling together. Your child will have opportunities to try different sports, music, art and other activities that suit their unique personality. They will see the world as we travel in the Navy and for vacation. Both of us have many great memories of our childhood vacations: road trips to the Grand Canyon and to the seashore, and camping trips in the mountains. We look forward to adventures like these as a family.

Our House and Neighborhood

Our Home

Being in the Navy means that we often get to live by the seashore. After living in on the island of Okinawa, Japan for three years, we are now enjoying southern California. It is great to be closer to family and friends while living in one of the most beautiful cities in the country.

We live in a newer suburb that was built for families with all conveniences and great schools close by. There are always friends out and about to play with when we visit neighborhood parks, pools or the Tuesday Farmer’s market. We are next to the mountains and a lake, yet only 35 minutes from the beach. We chose this community because of the family atmosphere, for its racial and ethnic diversity and great schools. Julian attends bilingual preschool where he is learning Spanish and English. This area is known as the “city of parks.” We are walking distance to several amazing kids’ playgrounds, Olympic-sized pools, a splash pad, basketball courts and soccer and baseball fields. It’s a great place to live an active, outdoor lifestyle.

Our home has 3 bedrooms and an open play area upstairs. Our downstairs has a living room, dining room and the heart of our home is the large eat in kitchen and family room. Our backyard is fully fenced with grass and a large patio (great for playing ball or drawing chalk tracks for hot wheels and bike riding).

Our Extended Families

Lexie's Family

Spending time with family is important to us.

Lexie grew up in Pennsylvania in a family that loves to play every kind of sport. She is the oldest, with two younger brothers. Her parents have been married for 45+ years. When we get together we always play sports together: tee ball, basketball, swimming or a very competitive annual beanbag toss tournament! We visit amusement parks and play card games that Lexie’s Gran teaches us.

A Visit With Chris' Parents

Chris grew up in Arizona in a very close, fun-loving family with two brothers, a half-sister and over 20 cousins who lived nearby in Arizona and Mexico. His parents have been married for 35+ years. Chris’ mom is from Mexico. He was raised in a bilingual home (and went to bilingual school). When we get together, we love to cook traditional Mexican dishes like albondegas, chilaquiles, posole and tamales.

We visit our home towns each year to see our family and our parents and siblings come to stay with us at least once or twice a year. Everyone on both sides of our family is very supportive of our open adoption plan and they are overjoyed at the thought of welcoming another child into our lives.

From Us to You

As a married couple, together for over seven years, we are prepared and excited to welcome a second child to our family. We see each child as a miracle and a blessing. We handle the “big stuff” in our lives really well and believe in strong, supportive teamwork. Our marriage is built on a foundation of love, laughter, friendship and respect; this is also the core of our family. Together we will try to guide our children to become happy, kind adults who follow their dreams and enjoy life. Some of our priorities as parents include bilingual education (Spanish and English), lots of fun, and family time. We are committed to providing your baby with a loving, happy, stable home and a life filled with fun and many opportunities.

We are a happy, active and adventurous family that enjoys spending time with one another. We have tons of support from family and friends and everyone is excited for what the future holds. Julian has lots of energy and is enthusiastic about the idea of becoming a big brother. Baby clothes and supplies are ready. Our home is safe and baby-proofed. Chris will have 30 days of paternity leave to allow us time to adjust to life as a family of four.

We promise to raise your child with love, compassion, truthfulness, and strong values. It is important to us that we always live in a multi-cultural community where we can meet friends of many diverse backgrounds. Through travel, we are excited to share experiences and learn about different cultures around the world as a family. We both value the importance of a solid education and look forward to giving your child the opportunity to follow his/her own dreams and passions.

We wish you the best with your decision and we want you to know that we believe it takes a very special person to consider adoption. We want our child to know his or her birth mother. You will always have a special place in our lives. Your child will wholeheartedly know how grateful we are to you for helping to grow our family. We would love the opportunity to have an open adoption with you, in which we can remain in contact through emails, phone calls, letters and visits, if you are OK with that as well.

If there is anything else you’d like to know about us, please feel free to ask! We would be happy to meet you and get to know each other through email, phone or video calls if you’d like, using Skype or Facetime. Of course, if you decide to have us adopt your baby, we will travel to be with you when the baby is born. We are looking forward to being there for you and the baby when that time comes and would love to stay in touch with you throughout your baby’s life, if you are OK with that as well. We hope to hear from you and wish you the very best.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us.
