Dear Birthmother,

Life is precious from the moment of conception. Your strength, courage and love extends well beyond the care of your child to bring peace and love to others. We so admire your courage to explore adoption, so that you can give your child the best possible life. We have tried to have our own children and have also always wanted to adopt a child into our loving family. We will be able to offer this child a lifetime of love and adventures. With our large extended family across the country, everyone will be excited and eager to welcome a new addition to the family. We will be able to provide the child love, safety and security as we grow together through our faith, schools, sports, community and social activities in town and around the state. We are both very active adults, that tease, love and have fun with any activities and social events that we attend. Our Best, Natalie & Chris

About Us

We are both very active adults who love, tease and have fun with whatever we do. Chris grew up in a small town located in New England. As a child he was active in many sports; his favorite being soccer, which he ended up playing in to college. He was also involved in his school musical program and Boy Scouts. He spent several summers camping and fishing with his parents and grandparents in the Adirondacks and Lake Champlain. While in college, Chris was part of a National Service Fraternity. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering and is part of a team that dissembles and recycles electronics as their Environmental Compliance Manager.

Natalie grew up in a small, Midwestern town. As a child she was involved in many sports; as well as playing the clarinet for her high school band and college orchestra. Natalie spent summers at her family lake property in Wisconsin. There she learned to swim, sail, water ski, fish with her dad, canoe and motor boat, all while enjoying family time. She has a large family with five siblings, nineteen nieces and nephews and twenty great nieces and nephews. Natalie has a Bachelor's Degree in Management and a Graduate school certificate in HR management. She is the Director of Operations for a small residential construction company.

Our Home

We live in a two bedroom condo in a beautiful condominium complex. We have met many other young couples with their young children also living in the same complex. We see them walking often to the parks nearby. When we are lucky enough to bring a child home, we plan to move to a larger space and get a house with a yard. For now, we have more than enough room with green common space, a swimming pool and an easy walk to local parks.

The town of North Andover was selected by Money Magazine in 2003 as the "Fifth Best Community to live in on the East Coast". We have a beautiful memorial library, recreational opportunities at Stevens Pond and extensive programs from the youth center. North Andover takes great pride in providing excellent education for all of its students. It is a wonderful place to live and we can't wait to raise a child here.

Our Extended Family

Coming from a large family, Natalie has 19 nieces and nephews and 20 great nieces and nephews. As you can imagine, they are a huge part of our lives! We love to spend time with them whether it is riding bikes, scooters, bowling, swimming at the pool or the beach, fishing in the ocean in Maine, going to the museums or to the park.We also bowl with Natalie's special needs nephew once a week in a local league, where he has excelled in learning a new sport and making new friends.

Natalie has also had a lot of experience helping her nieces and nephews by caring for them, babysitting, teaching them or coaching them in many activities and sports. She has helped her brother’s family for years, which consists of 4 children very close in age; including a developmentally challenged nephew, twins and a baby. She has been both a godmother and confirmation sponsor. Chris has quickly become a wonderful uncle to their nieces and nephews and has established a special one-on-one relationship with each and every one of them in the few years they have been married. Natalie’s siblings all love Chris to pieces.

Our Family Traditions

Our families celebrate many family traditions on most major holidays and religious celebrations. One of our unique traditions is a feast on Christmas Eve which celebrates the seven fishes. We tend to have a seafood feast complemented with pasta and other meat related dishes, while catching up with nieces, nephews, and cousins who we have not seen in a while. At Easter, we have organized egg hunting festivities or yard games for the kids. At Thanksgiving, we love to cook, gather for a good meal, watch football and root for the New England Patriots or Green Bay Packers and sometimes both.

We have been blessed to have life-long friends who we have vacationed with annually in South Carolina on the beautiful beaches of the Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island and historic Charleston, visited with others at cook outs, beach trips, softball games or even in prayer groups. We both loves sports, playing dominoes, shopping, fishing, camping and working on puzzles or playing board games like Monopoly, Trivia or Yahtzee.

What Led Us To Adoption

A newly adopted child will be showered with an abundance of love, guidance and faith. The child will have multicultural experiences, many social and family activities and ample instructional support from various school programs as well as constant support from us. We both are so looking forward to sharing our love and life with a child.

I adopted our son as a newborn after going through 12 years of infertility. Now, 23 years later, I am director at Everlasting Adoptions. Shortly after adopting our son, I started to feel a calling towards adoption. My career as a Human Resource Manager in Corporate America came to an end, and I entered what I now know is my purpose and passion in life — building families through the miracle of adoption.

Working with birthmothers and adoptive parents throughout the US for over 20 years has allowed me to utilize the skills I have been blessed with to serve others. I come to work every day not as a staff member coming to a job from 9 to 5, but as a person who is extremely dedicated and devoted to helping people like you every single day. I feel very blessed to have found my purpose, and I look forward to helping you with your adoption needs!
