Hello Dearest Expectant Mother!
Thank you for considering adoption! We are honored to be a part of your journey. We are praying for you and your baby. Our faith has guided us to this moment, and we know God is there to guide you as well. “Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find; knock, and the door will be open to you.” Matthew 7:7 NIV
We are Craig and Denise. We’ve been married twelve years. We live in the greater Houston area in a rural neighborhood. There’s lots of big oak and pecan trees and plenty of space to run around and play. We have one son, Sebastien, that we adopted from foster care in January 2020. He’s simply a delight.
Craig works as a lawyer and Denise is a stay at home mom who also breeds and works with cats so there’s no daycare required. On the weekends we enjoy DIY projects, playing with Sebastien at the park, or visiting friends. We eat dinner together as a family every night and will continue this practice for as long as our children’s schedules allow. Both of us love being parents and are so very excited to add another child to our family.
We are both close with our extended families, even though we do not live close to them. With FaceTime it’s so easy to remain in each other’s lives, and we visit as often as we can. Craig’s family lives in Arlington, TX and Denise is a native Californian who got to Texas as quickly as she could. We fly to California every year to visit with Denise’s family, hit the beach, and enjoy Disneyland. Craig has one younger brother, and Denise has two younger brothers.
Since we both experienced Christian schools growing up, it is our goal to provide that same type of education for our children. We’ve enrolled our son in the preK-3 program at our church. He starts school in August 2021. Our baby is growing up so fast! He attends church with us every week, and we are raising him to be a good Christian young man. Likewise, will we raise any children that the Lord decides to place with us.
If you like animals, then we are the best family. We have seven Ragdoll cats, a goofy Cocker Spaniel, and the cutest chickens who eat out of our hands. As you can imagine, life gets hectic with all the animals and a small child, but we love it. Our house might not always be perfectly picked up, and sometimes you’ll come away with white cat fur on your black pants, but through the clutter we’re loving each other and living life to the fullest.
Please know that your sacrifice is not lost on us. We want you in our life and we welcome an open adoption relationship with you. We have had the honor of adopting our son. His birth mother did not feel comfortable with an open adoption, so we have a closed adoption with her. We hope to build a relationship with you as we already consider you a part of our family. Or, on the off chance you’d rather have little to no communication, we can handle that too (as we’re doing with Sebastien). We are open!
