A Letter from John & Chaz
Our close-knit, rambunctious household is a great place to grow up in. We’re energetic parents who love to travel, learn new things, and have fun. We are thrilled to grow our family through adoption and will love your child unconditionally. Our kids are excited to have a sibling and our entire extended family is delighted to welcome your child!
A Little About Us
We’ve been married for 13 years and have two children at the home, Lucas (12) and Sadie (11). We love spending time together, and live life to the fullest. We enjoy going camping, hiking, snowboarding, and more! We belong to a private pool that’s a great place to enjoy summer. During the winter, we like to curl up on the couch and watch movies in front of the fireplace. In the evenings, we read good books aloud to Lucas and Sadie and are excited to read bedtime stories to our next child. We are so excited to grow our family through adoption and look forward to sharing our lives with your child!
Meet John (written by Chaz)
John is gentle and kind. Working from home allows him to spend lots of time with his family. He’s a wonderful father and husband. John is dependable, honest, and trustworthy. He’s got a great sense of humor and loves cracking silly jokes. His favorite thing to do is to sing and play the guitar. When he’s not working, he enjoys wrestling with the kids and cooking delicious meals. Everyone loves his gourmet quesadillas. During family movie nights, he pops us a giant bowl of popcorn the old fashion way on the stovetop.
He’s an expert at building things, loves playing with Legos, and is excited to teach our next child how to put toys together. He also looks forward to teaching them how to draw, build a campfire, roast the perfect marshmallow, and how to play the guitar.

She laughs often and does her best to make everyone feel loved and happy. She devotes herself to her family all year long but really goes all out to make the holidays feel special. She loves making special birthday cakes for the kids.
Chaz is passionate about giving her children the best possible education and is excited to teach our next child the joy of reading as well! She enjoys working in the garden to grow her own organic food. Chaz cooks healthy meals for her family. While cooking, she keeps music playing and enjoys dancing with the kids! She is looking forward to teaching your child to cook too. She loves seeing her kids thrive and will make sure they have the opportunity to do whatever makes their heart happy. Most importantly, she’s excited to teach another little one to love Jesus.
Our Home in Virginia
Our spacious, 4 bedroom home is in a safe, quiet neighborhood. The house is big, so we are able to have our huge, extended family over often. In the evenings, we enjoy our outdoor firepit. We have remodeled almost everything in our home and made it our own. This really gives us the feeling of home and comfort and peace every time we walk through its doors.
We have an outdoor cat named Charm, who loves attention. Next-door, our neighbors have three friendly dogs that are very well-trained, so our kids play with them often. We have over an acre of land with woods and a shallow creek in our backyard. Our front yard has an awesome hill for sledding.
John’s family lives all over the United States, so it gives us the opportunity to travel across the country. Chaz has a large, close-knit family and we get together often. Going on vacations together is so fun! We spend all the holidays together. We have pool parties every 4th of July, have Pumpkin Painting parties around Halloween, and family Gingerbread House parties during Christmas. Growing up with cousins is so much fun! Going to church with Chaz’s parents and eating brunch together is one of our favorite weekly traditions.

We promise to provide your child with a safe, stable home, and to love them always. We will teach them about God and provide them with a good education, so they have every opportunity to reach their full potential.

|More About Our Family|
Gazing up at the stars together on warm summer nights is amazing. Whenever we go on trips, we always make it a point to go outside after dark and look at the sky. The first time we did this together, we were still dating and Chaz saw her first shooting star. Right then, she knew she was going to marry John someday.
Our faith in God is strong. In fact, faith is what led us to this adoption journey.
We belong to a large church that has an awesome kids’ program. The Bible is a big part of lives. We know it, read it and live it out as best we can. One of our favorite verses is Romans 8:1 “There is therefore now no condemnation in Christ Jesus”.
|Our Musical Interest|
Chaz prefers happy music. Some favorite artists are Bob Marley, Norah Jones, Erika Badu, India Arie. Lately she’s been getting into bluegrass-inspired music like Mumford and Sons. We do a lot of dance parties in the kitchen to Pharrell William’s “Happy” or Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling”. Chaz also likes classical music and plays it in the house often.
|About Our Home|
