Congratulations! Our Story
We're Adopting a Girl.
Thank you for taking some time to look at our profile. Hopefully it will help you get to know us better. We realize that this is likely a very difficult time for you. We admire your strength and courage and we hope that you are getting the support that you need.
We have been married for 6 years, and the time has just flown by, we still feel like newly weds in a lot of ways! We met in college during a chemistry class…ironic huh? In fact our friends and family still tease us that we had good “chemistry”! We got paired up as lab partners a few weeks into the semester, since both of our original lab partners dropped the class, and a great friendship started from there. Chemistry quickly became our favorite class and we enjoyed making little bets on who would do better on tests or assignments and the loser would owe the winner an ice cream or a soda. We wrote lots of notes in that class and most of them were not about the lecture, they were to and about each other! We started spending even more time together outside of class, with our friends at college sporting events, dances, and church. Before we knew it we were dating! During those great months we did lots of fun things including going to Suns basketball games and to Disneyland! It wasn’t long before we decided that we couldn’t live without each other, and Chad popped the question. It was a romantic windy night that accidently included fire ants, (which, by the way, Ashley does not like bugs whether they bite or not) and Ashley said, “yes!” Since then we have experienced lots together. We are still very in love and still have great “chemistry”, hahaha!
About Chad, from Ashley:
I remember seeing Chad for the first time with a group of friends. He was talking to one of my friends and I remember thinking he was cute, and wanting to meet him. I remember thinking I was so lucky when I went to the first day of school and saw he was in my chemistry class, and even luckier when we got paired as lab partners not long after! Chad is my best friend, he is so good to me, he makes me feel special, and he can always make me laugh. Chad is the second oldest in a family of nine children and it always amazes me what a great brother he is. Any one of his siblings will tell you how much they look up to and admire him. Chad is also very smart. In fact I was not only glad to be his lab partner in chemistry because I had a crush on him, I also got my own private tutor that could help me if a subject was difficult to understand. Chad speaks fluent Spanish and he is currently working on his Master’s Degree in Business Administration. And if full time school doesn’t keep him busy enough, he also works full time as a manager. I am so lucky and grateful for him and his hard work to provide for our family. Chad is also very active in our church, and loves to serve others. Chad is a kind and loving person. I love him, and I know that he will make a wonderful father someday.
About Ashley, from Chad:
I first met Ashley through friends, noticed right away she was hot stuff, and knew after just a short time being around her that I wanted to marry her. It wasn’t long before I was trying to find ways to take her out, and it was the running joke with my roommates how long before I could kiss her. She stood firm and it took a few dates before I had won her over enough to steal a kiss. There are a few things that caught my eye besides her smokin’ good looks. One of the things that I love about Ashley is how kind hearted she is. She is nice to everyone and will put others before herself even at her own expense. After spending just a little time with Ashley’s family I could see how great of a big sister she is and how great of a mom she will be. Ashley doesn’t give herself much credit or praise, but she is very smart and talented. She won the Nursing student of the year award during nursing school and always got good grades. When Ashley sets her mind to learn a new talent or try a new hobby, she does it whole heartedly. This carries over to work and church, and her coworkers always tell me how much they love her and how great a job she does. Ashley’s sweetness and kindness help our relationship, and I love her more than anything. She’s a great wife and I know she’ll be an awesome mom.
I enjoy playing sports and being active. My favorite sports are volleyball, tennis, and swimming. I get to play volleyball a few times a week on a city league team. It is fun! I also love to read all kinds of books, but especially ones with happy endings. I love Elvis Presley and until I was about ten years old I thought he was still alive. My dad told me he had been dead a long time and I was so sad, because I was in love with him! I also love Star Trek and Star Wars (thanks to my dad) and because of that Chad and I have actually been to a few Star Trek conventions where we got to meet the stars of some of the movies. It was so cool, we are not nerds though, hahaha! I also enjoy photography and drawing. I am currently working as a Nurse in the operating room, and although my job is stressful at times, I really enjoy helping people.
Sports have always been my first true love (before I met Ashley of course). Baseball was my favorite as a kid, and I hit my first homerun when I was 4. I got rewarded with Dairy Queen! As I got older my love turned to basketball, and I still play a few times a week, although I can’t jump as high or move as fast as I could in High School! I like the outdoors and enjoyed the scouting program growing up. I have fond memories of family camp outs and fishing trips, and have loved getting hooked on hunting since marrying Ashley. She thinks I’m nuts sometimes because I enjoy it so much. No matter what, the best part is just being in the outdoors with family and friends. I also enjoy music and like to sing, play the piano, and to teach myself a little guitar. I hated practicing the piano growing up, but am glad my mom was persistent, and hope to help our kids learn to love music too. I work as a manager and enjoy working with people, and seeing how the finances impact the business. I’ll be glad to finish my MBA next year and look forward to the extra time to do things at home and spend more time with family.
Although we both enjoy work, we also like to play! We enjoy taking family vacations probably about twice a year, and we also like to go on weekend adventures once in a while. We love to go to Disneyland and to the beach, and since we have family that live close by there we like to go often. We also enjoy the outdoors together and like to spend time camping, fishing, hunting, and hiking. We are active in our church and it is important to us, and a big part of our lives. Mostly though, we enjoy spending time with our families and since we both have large extended families, there is always something going on!
Excited About Adoption
We have been trying to start our family for the past three years. We have had six pregnancies and six miscarriages thus far. We have seen many doctors, and done lots of different test and treatments. Even with the best medicine and doctors each pregnancy has ended in loss, and the doctors now tell us that they just cannot figure out why we cannot carry a pregnancy. This has been a trial for us, and it has been heartbreaking at times, but we are optimistic, and we know that our Heavenly Father has a plan for us. We are not giving up on having a family and we are excited about the miracle of adoption.
This is our first time going through the adoption process, and we have learned a lot about open adoptions. From what we know so far we feel that an open adoption would be a wonderful blessing. We would want any child who comes to our family to know how special they are and that they are loved by many people. We would love to exchange letters, photos, and email, and even meet when time and situation allow. We know that each circumstance is different and we are open and willing to discuss this further.
We want to thank you again for taking time to read our profile. It means a lot to us. We hope you got to see who we are and maybe we even made you smile a little. We wish you the best of luck in all you do.
