Chris and Caitlin Adopt

Welcome Friend!

We are Chris and Caitlin, a crazy, unconventional, fun-loving, nerdy, laughter-filled couple. We live in Maryland, and are looking to grow our family through the gift of adoption.

Thanks for your interest in our journey!

We have been friends for 10 years, a couple for 8 years, married for 3 years, and we have been through so much life together, both good and bad. We are the proud mom/bonus-dad to Nate and Alex, our 14 year old twin sons and doting parents to our 2.5 year old mini-labradoodle Lady Roselyn Fluffbutt (aka Rosie). After 3 years of infertility, 2 miscarriages and countless hours of reflection and deep coversations, we are excited to find ourselves on this unique journey to expand our family.

Feel free to look around and get to know all 5 of us more intimately. We will try to update this website regularly, but to see more of our day to day life please check out our social media links.

Who We Are

Chris

Chris grew up in south central PA playing a variety of sports and finding his love of camping, hiking and spending time in the great outdoors. He works remotely as a manager to a team of software engineers and loves his job and the people he works with. Chris tends to laugh early and often and it brings him great joy to bring laughter to others. Chris enjoys playing board and video games with his family and friends and whenever possible he loves to make creative dinners out of whatever food and leftovers he finds in the house. Chris can be described as affable, gregarious and overall a giant teddybear. Chris has always wanted to be a dad and has enjoyed being a bonus-dad to Nate and Alex which has only intensified his desire to expand their family.

Caitlin

Caitlin was born in Wisconsin and spent her younger years in California before moving to Northern Virginia. She is currently a part-time executive assistant and a part-time college student earning her second bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology. Caitlin is looking forward to “retiring” from her admin duties and focusing her energy on chasing after a little one and pursuing a doctorate in Criminal Justice/Criminology. She is passionate about her family and friends, loves to travel, bake, watch movies and spend weekends in her pajamas hanging with Chris, the boys and Rosie.

Nate loves to play video games and watch all of the Marvel movies. Nate can regularly be found curled up in bed reading mystery novels and cuddling with Rosie. When asked what he loves about his family he replied “we are fun to be around”. Nate hopes to attend Virginia Tech and be an engineer.

Alex

Alex is also a freshman in high school and loves his Food Tech class. Alex is a member of the Dungeons and Dragons club too but prefers Harry Potter movies. If he could play videos game all day he would, however he does like reading, getting creative in the kitchen, and loving on Rosie.
