A Letter from Christopher & Taryn
Welcome to Wisconsin—Home of the Badgers!
We thank you for taking the time to get to know us. Welcoming your child into our home would bring us joy and happiness as it is filled with warmth, love and laughter. We cannot wait to become first-time parents through adoption. Adoption is the perfect path for us due to our struggle with infertility. As Badger fans, we cannot wait to share our enthusiasm for sports. Christopher looks forward to coaching while Taryn, with an Early Childhood Education background, looks forward to teaching your child many new things that life has to offer. We look forward to the great honor of becoming your child’s parents and create an open adoption plan that works for all of us!
We met after high school while at a mutual friend’s house. After dating a couple of years, we became engaged. We have been married for ten years and, after purchasing our forever home, we adopted our dog, Moka.
Taryn received her degree in Early Childhood Education and is currently an administrative assistant at a financial institution. Christopher is a Purchasing Manager for a construction supply company. We both grew up in Wisconsin, where all of our family still resides. We love sports and each have our favorite teams. We both enjoy attending Badger football, as well as Brewer baseball games. We also love to hike, fish and swim at our family’s cabin. We look forward to sharing these experiences with our first child.
We live in a single-family home with a large backyard with a connecting patio and a park two blocks away. Our neighborhood is filled with families with children as well as seniors. We are just minutes away from a wonderful zoo, children’s museum, a great school system and nationally recognized health care. When not at home, we love to spend time at the cabin. It provides opportunities to hike, fish and enjoy campfires in the great outdoors. We are excited to spend time there together as a family.
Our dog, Moka, is a perfect mix of energy and calm. She is small in size with a large personality. She loves walks and sunbathing. She is a very sweet dog that cannot wait for a partner in crime.
Taryn is an amazing woman who stole my heart with love at first sight. She won me over with her fun-loving personality and her caring heart. Taryn puts her friends and family first and is always there when you need her. She loves to cook, spend time with her family and do crafts. As an early education teacher, she is loved by many and loves to watch little ones learn and grow, including her nephew and nieces. I know that Taryn will be a great mother to our child and I look forward to seeing her share her passion for the arts and learning.
I am so blessed to have married such a gentle, caring, sincere, and affectionate man with such a huge heart. Christopher has the most contagious laugh and energy. Being around Christopher lifts you up. He loves sports especially baseball, football and bowling. Christopher is very persistent in what he sets his mind to and passionate in what he does. He is a devoted husband and puts the needs of others above his own. I know he will do the same for our child. Christopher will be the most involved, dedicated and tenacious father a child could ever ask for. I know that he will be an amazing father and is looking forward to coaching our child’s sports team, should that be their interest.
We both come from large, close-knit families who love to spend holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries together. There are great-grandparents along with many, many aunts, uncles, and cousins who are all very supportive of our journey to adopt. Chris’s parents have three grandchildren while Taryn’s parents are excited to welcome their first! Taryn’s parents have a cabin in the country, which we love to visit. It allows us to hike the great outdoors and hang out with family at the fire pit. Chris’s parents have plenty of family get-togethers at their family pool. They are all excited to welcome your child into the fun and family traditions!
We promise to raise your child in a loving home, where they will be loved unconditionally, supported in all their endeavors and encouraged to explore their passions and talents. We will nurture and care for them and teach them to treat others the way they would want to be treated. Your child will grow up to love and respect nature and all of what life has to offer. We would love to keep in contact with you and are open to letters, calls, and visits on the level which feels most comfortable to you. We look forward to learning more about you!
