About Us

Thank you for following us on our adoption journey!  We don’t have a remarkable story about how we met and started our family, but we do have something remarkable going on in our lives.  We are a military family of five currently stationed in New Orleans, Louisiana and look forward to growing our family through international adoption! We’re happy to share the experience with you and and hope you will follow us along the way.

We met through mutual friends in the fall of 2009; Stephen had just joined the United States Marine Corps and Christine had just started graduate school to study art history.  On very different paths, we fell in love and married in January 2011 before Stephen’s deployment to Afghanistan.  Almost a decade later, we have three beautiful children and, by the grace of God, still growing our family now through adoption.  You can check out our video below that shares a little more about our family and why we have chosen to adopt:


Thank you for following our story.  Your support, prayers, and good thoughts will help us so much throughout our journey!
