Chris & Elena

We are Chris and Elena. We are humbled that you are inviting us to be a part of your life journey. We are a multicultural family and are excited to grow our family through adoption. We are open-minded, understanding, and accepting of things that are different from us. Kids in our home will be exposed to different perspectives and have a fun life learning different cultures and traditions.

Scott & Leslie

We are Scott and Leslie.  Love and support are the cornerstone of our family.  We are eager to add another chapter to our story through adoption by continuing traditions we were both raised with.  Whether it be sharing dinner around the dining room table, decorating for the holidays, or vacationing to the beach, we hope to create memories that last a lifetime.

Travis & Katie

We are Travis and Katie. Adoption is our first choice to become parents and is something that has been on our hearts for the entirety of our 15-year marriage. We have a very happy life surrounded by wonderful people, interesting careers, and hobbies we hope to share with a child.

Marty & Korey

Hi, we are Marty and Korey! Korey herself was adopted as an infant through Catholic Charities, and adoption was immediately what we turned to when we found ourselves struggling with secondary infertility. We would describe our family as a kind and caring household with lots of love but also, lots of fun adventures and laughter.

Josh & Ashney

Hi there! We are Josh and Ashney with four cute kiddos. We have a happy, home-centered family life. We love to be together eating nourishing meals, playing games, gardening, reading, hiking, and visiting fun places. We are very active in our Catholic Faith bringing holy days and celebrations alive in our home daily. We have many wonderful friends, as well as, close grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. We love children and have very open hearts to adoption. As a family, we love big, we laugh together, and we talk about everything. We look forward to any more children God sees fit add to our family!
