Hi! We’re Chad and Katie! We’ve been married for 10 years, and we met while working on the design team of our college student newspaper. After graduating from college in Chicago, and spending some time in North Carolina, we decided to move back to Katie’s home town of St. Louis to be closer to family and friends. We are lucky that Katie’s parents live 15 minutes away from us and Chad’s parents visit often from Omaha, NE. Our parents have both been married for over 40 years and have shown us how to create a loving and lasting relationship.
We are both graphic designers and love the work that we do. Chad has worked as a digital marketer and works from home, which allows him a more flexible schedule. And Katie founded and runs a web design business focused on helping fellow female entrepreneurs build their businesses. As her own boss, Katie is able to set her own schedule, allowing her to set her schedule to prioritize family.
Chad enjoys watching sports (especially the Nebraska Cornhuskers!), reading comic books and listening to music. Katie loves practicing yoga, watercolor painting, gardening and listening to fiction and nonfiction audiobooks. Together we love to try new restaurants, binge on the latest Netflix series and visit new cities and countries. We have built a strong relationship and foundation on our mutual love and respect for one another and our common interests. We want to be parents because we want to be able to share our unconditional love with a child. We are excited and honored by the opportunity to welcome a child into our lives.
OUR MESSAGE TO YOU:
Thank you for your bravery and for taking the time to review our profile. We are grateful that you are choosing adoption for your child. We can not imagine how difficult it is to make that decision and want you to know that we will love and care for your child unconditionally if you select us as parents. We look forward to learning your story throughout this process and telling our child about the birth parents that love him/her.
