Hello! We are Dave and Kris. Thank you for choosing to read our story and learn about our decision to pursue adoption.

Our story began in a friend's living room. In 2010, a close mutual friend from college announced that she would be deploying overseas. She held a party to enjoy some quality time with her closest friends before her year-long deployment. Though we had multiple mutual friends, several of whom were at the party, we'd never met or even known about each other. For most of the evening, the two of us sat on the couch, talking and learning about each other. It was clear we were both interested, though one of us was in a relationship.

Nearly two years later, we reconnected through a conversation online and decided to get together. We planned a birthday outing with the same friend whose home we'd met at years earlier, as our birthdays were all within days of each other. The day we'd planned to go to dinner, she informed us she wouldn't be able to make it but encouraged us to have a good time together. That was our first date.

It didn't take long for the two of us to fall in love, and a little over a year later, we were engaged. We married in the fall of 2014.

Before our marriage, we were aware that our chances of conceiving a child were not likely. Neither of us could imagine a life without children, and we decided adoption was the right path for us. We are so very excited to welcome a child or children into our hearts and our home through adoption.

FAQ’s about placing a baby for Adoption

I'm considering giving my baby up for adoption. How much does that cost?

It won't cost you anything. If you choose to place your baby for adoption, all of your medical and legal fees will be covered and you may be eligible for financial assistance with other pregnancy-related expenses.

I'm experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and don't know who the birth father is. Can I still place my baby for adoption?

Yes. Even if you don’t know the identity of the birth father, you can still choose to make an adoption plan. However, every adoption situation is different. The adoption social worker you’re assigned to will get to know you and your story first, and then guide you through the process accordingly.

When is the right time to talk with an adoption professional?

You can make an adoption plan at any point in your pregnancy, even after the baby has been born. But, it's important to start the process as early in your pregnancy as possible. Connecting with those resources will allow you to gain access to important medical services, including prenatal care, to help ensure a healthy pregnancy.

When I create an adoption plan, will I get to choose who is in the room with me during delivery?

One aspect of your adoption plan is the "Hospital Plan" an outline of how you'd like your hospital stay and delivery to go. You can craft this on your own or with the help of your adoption social worker. But everything is up to you. You’ll be able to choose who comes to the hospital with you, who is in the room with you during delivery, and how much time you’d like to spend with the baby before signing the final papers.

How much contact will I have with the adoptive family after I place my baby with them?

As part of your adoption plan, you'll determine whether or not you’d like to have an open or closed adoption or something in between. Open adoptions may include phone calls, messaging (via social media, email, or text), and/or periodic visits each year. Closed adoptions may include no contact at all or annual updates provided to the birth parent(s) by the adoptive family. Each post-adoption relationship is different and can vary based on what an expectant mother chooses in her adoption plan.

He is Risen - Easter with Family


The holidays are always so special to us because they are time to spend with our families, especially since we live a bit further away.  This Easter holiday was a day of celebration, love, and family.  We began our day by attending church with Kris’s dad, sister, our brother-in-law, and niece to celebrate Jesus’s rising.  The six of us took up the entire front pew, and our beautiful little niece walked up to communion with us. After church, we watched her hunt for Easter eggs before we visited Dave’s grandma and had an Easter morning breakfast with his aunts, uncles, and cousins present.  The gatherings there are always crowded, though lots of fun!  His eldest cousin was hard at work in the kitchen, as he usually is at these celebrations.  Kids played games outside while adults watched or walked around and caught up with each other.  We cherish these times with his extended family, as we have recently lost loved ones and are taking as many moments as we can to spend with his grandmother. Our day continued with our traditional Easter dinner celebration with our combined families at Kris’s dad’s house and another Easter egg hunt with our niece...
