Our names are Derek and Christie. Owen is our fabulous 2-year old! The best way to describe our family is fun-loving. Our home is full of laughter and silliness. We have spontaneous dance parties, tickle fights on the trampoline, and sing songs around the campfire in our backyard. But most importantly, all who enter our home are treated like family and embraced with love.
Christie was born and raised a Texas girl but loves living in Pennsylvania. She enjoys being a stay at home mom. We have a fantastic community where there is always something to do. Christie and Owen spend a lot of time at the local parks, library, gym, and outside exploring nature.
Derek comes from California where he grew up dirt biking with his dad and brothers. The love of motocross has trickled down to Christie and Owen and is now a family affair! Derek works hard as an engineer at a chocolate company. Derek is the best dad to our little Owen. They love wrestling and running around together.
Owen came into our lives through adoption when he was 2 weeks old. He is a miracle! He’s a social guy who loves to play hide and seek and whisper unprompted “I love you’s.” We are so excited for Owen to be a big brother and to share the bond of adoption with his sibling.
We value the gift of life and regard your decision to place for adoption as an act of heroism. Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit about us. We wish you peace and comfort during this journey
