A Letter from Chris & Casey
We are overjoyed to be able to introduce ourselves to you and tell you a little about our family. We’re an energetic, fun-loving family that strives to be outdoors in God’s beautiful creation, learning, and exploring. We’re blessed to live near both of our extended families who are loving and supportive. We want to get to know you and build a relationship together if that is something you desire. This could be through pictures, letters, and visits. We hope you enjoy getting to know us and we are looking forward to learning about you!
We have been married for 8 (almost 9) years and are truly best friends. Walking through life, hand in hand together is such a joy. We met at a Thanks-Christmas party 11 years ago and have been together ever since! On our first date, we talked about everything under the sun, part of which was that we each shared that we had a desire to adopt one day. Now, by God’s providence here we are! We are so excited to meet you and love your child! We’re committed to living life intentionally in faith, work, and fun, and we are excitedly waiting to share all this with your child!
We like hiking, camping, Do-it-yourself projects of all kinds, playing board games, and just enjoying life as a family in whatever adventure we can discover! We have two children, and they are surrounded by family, friends, and the church. We will offer your child love, care, a well-rounded education, and the togetherness of a strong and tightly knit family.
Chris captured my heart long ago and has kept it ever since. He is a man’s man; full of drive and action to accomplish goals he sets before himself. He’s able to balance his drive with a patient, soft and tender side. Whether it’s in the great outdoors or on the basketball court at the nearby park, he enjoys sharing in adventure with family and friends.
Chris is an amazing father; you can see that by simply looking into our children’s eyes when daddy is home. The way they light up for him shows pure love, affection, and adoration for him. Chris loves fiercely, and I know he will love your child with that same fierceness.
It’s a privilege to briefly share with you why I am a very blessed man. On top of being my best friend, Casey is an amazing mother, a constant source of encouragement and a loving helper. She’s one of the most creative and bold people I know. Casey loves to sew, scrapbook, cook, bake, and make new things from old furniture!
The sheer passion she lives life with and her genuine and infectious personality has been a blessing to me, our children, and everyone she meets. Casey will wholeheartedly love your sweet baby and will constantly show them and tell them that they are cherished and loved beyond measure!
Our children, Lincoln and Adalynn, are such a blessing! They play very well together and have a special and beautiful sibling bond. We are confident that when we get to bring home their new little brother or sister, they will form a strong relationship with him/her! They ask every day when they will be able to meet, “…our baby”!
Lincoln is a talented and bright little man that is always curious and investigating how EVERYTHING works. Lincoln dotes upon his little sister and has such a tender heart for others. Whenever he sees flowers AKA “weeds”, he stops what he is doing, runs over and picks mommy some “flowers.”
Adalynn is our daredevil princess who loves everything pink and sparkly while also declaring how “powerful” she is! She is so brave and confident in who she is already and loves creating new games and playing with her “Bubba” and friends. She carries around her baby dolls and pretends they are her little siblings. She brings joy to any room she enters and loves deeply!
Our extended family is one of our top priorities in life. We cherish our relationships with them and love being able to see them regularly. We both have been raised and blessed with tight, close-knit families. Both sides live in town and are loving and supportive. Everyone one of them is excited to welcome your child into the family – sharing all of our fun and crazy traditions with your little one!
We have a bright, 4 bedroom home with large windows! There is a charming and fun backyard for your child to play and use their imaginations. We have a nursery and a room for them to transition into once they are older that are waiting to be filled. Since we knew that we always wanted to adopt, we made sure to have the ability and room to do so when we bought this house! We live just a short walk away from a few great parks! Our library is AMAZING and just around the corner, and you will find us there at least once a week replenishing our stack of books! We have wonderful neighbors around us and live only a couple of streets away from our best friends!
We promise to cherish your child. We promise to be devoted parents to your child’s individual needs. We promise to give your child a diverse and well-rounded education and will provide every opportunity to explore his/her passions. We promise to give your child a house full of love, joy, and laughter. We promise to always support and encourage your child to grow. We promise to be there for your child – no matter what.

|More About Our Family|
|A typical day in our home involves ....|
Reading, crafts, prayers as a family, kiss quotas, snuggles and an overabundance of love and laughter! One of Chris’ favorite things to do at home is working on DIY projects and always have his little helpers. One of Casey’s favorite things to do in our home is hosting tea parties. She graduated from a culinary institute and adores making scrumptious foods for the eyes and taste buds. She can’t wait to share all her cooking tips and tricks with your child.
We are Christians, saved by grace alone. Our daily walk with God consists of reading His word, both separately and together as we discuss what we've read and encourage one another in the word. We pray together and encourage one another with verses and songs that we ourselves have been reminded of when a trial of some kind comes. Our daily walk is a constant quest to submit our lives whole hardheartedly to the will of God as we seek to follow His will for our lives. We live our life to the best we can, using our talents and abilities to glorify Him in all things in light of this present life with a longing for eternity with Him.
|Our Family, Friends and Children|
Our family is close, supportive and full of love. We have four nephews and three nieces, all within a few years of each other. It is joyful and such a blessing that the children are all going to grow up together. Each and every one of our family members are excited about our adoption journey ahead and look forward to including your child in all of our fun.
Another huge pillar in our lives is our strong friend base. We have been blessed to be surrounded by a strong Christian community of friends. They're always there for our family. They keep us accountable and focused on our relationship with Christ. We have a very deep, yet fun-loving, relationship with our friends. We can be very silly together, but ultimately lift each other up and point one another back to Christ in all things. This group of amazing friends all has kids close in age to ours! This baby will never lack built-in playmates and good, strong Christian influences in his/her life.
Lincoln, our inquisitive son, is so excited to have a new sibling. He's a remarkable brother to his little sister. He has such a helpful spirit and while he is very shy and timid at first - once he opens up, he's a whirlwind of fun, excitement, creativity and clever thinking!
Adalynn is our resident cuddle bug. She has such a joyful spirit and loves playing with her older brother and swinging in the park. She's our little daredevil princess. She's always playing dress up carrying around her little blankie and pretending to make tea. She also loves to climb on and try anything that her “Bubba" does.
|About Our Home in New Mexico|
We live in a 4 bedroom home on a quiet street just a hop, skip, and a jump away from three parks and the top rated library in the city! Our home is an environment of love, encouragement, and a safe place to truly be yourself. We love hosting events and sharing meals with our dear family and friends! This is where we come together under one roof as a family. This is where we will raise your child to be a kind, strong, and compassionate adult. This is the home where he/she will always know the door is open and our hearts are full of love for her/him. We are so excited to welcome your child into our home as he/she is already welcome in our hearts.
|Our Family and Family Traditions||This is a family that is never short on traditions. Whether it’s weekly traditions such as cooking crepes and co-op school explorations; or annual traditions such as shooting off fireworks, Christmas advent calendars, unwrapping a Christmas book each night in December, special birthday breakfast feasts and taking turns saying something special about the birthday person and enjoying family reunions. But our favorite tradition of all happens every night before bedtime. We snuggle up as a family, read books together, say prayers, and ask the children what was their favorite part of the day. So much laughter and so many hugs and kisses are shared during this special family bonding time. Traditions are wonderful things to pass down from generation to generation, and we are looking forward to sharing these traditions and more with ALL our children!|
|We live in the state of...||New Mexico. We live near a zoo, Bio Park, Aquarium, mountains, the wilderness, and so much more! We attend story hour at the libraries regularly. The kids love going to the balloon museum for story hour, crafts and music time! New Mexico is a place to explore and let your imagination and adventurous spit lead you to find hidden waterfalls and secret caves. You can easily have the comforts of the city but the adventures of the outdoors at your fingertips!|
|Our Neighborhood||Is in a quieter part of town. The schools in the immediate area are highly rated, so there are many younger families around us. There are several parks nearby and one that we quite frequently walk to in the evenings. There are public pools nearby for swimming lessons and fun! Compared to where we each grew up, the neighbors really seem to get in the spirit of Christmas and it's an endless delight to meander home during the holidays and see all the different lights and decorations.|
|We Prefer a Child Who Is...|
|Age of child|
Yes, we are open to twins.
|Ethnicity of Child||ANY|
|Future Contact with Birth Family||We are open to photos, letters, and visits if you are comfortable.|
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us a little bit. We would love to get to know you more and you to get to know us more too! Chris and Casey 🙂
