Hello! We’re Christine and Robert. As you read this please know that we are incredibly thankful for you and admire your love and courage in considering an adoption plan for your baby. We understand this is a deeply personal decision. We promise your baby will be surrounded by love and laughter, that our home and our hearts will always be loving, and you will forever have a place in our family. We are open to sharing as much about your baby’s growth and life as you want to receive.
Although we live in Orlando now, Robert grew up in Michigan and Christine in Pittsburgh (Go, Steelers!). We have strong family ties in both places and visit often. We’ve been married for ten years and in that time we’ve been fortunate enough to work and travel around the world. After living in Washington, D.C. for six years, Robert accepted a job with Disney and we happily moved back to Florida to be near friends and family. Although Christine began her career as a teacher, she recently completed a second graduate degree in Speech-Language Pathology. She now works as a therapist in a pediatric clinic serving kids with special needs and truly loves her job! Both of our jobs are very flexible, allowing us to work from home and take time off as needed.
Our Home & Values
We love to be outdoors and take advantage of the beautiful sunny weather. We live in a planned community with miles of paved biking and hiking trails, several playgrounds, community gardens, a beautiful pool, picnic areas, an outdoor exercise trail, and a disc golf course. Our home is spacious, with a large yard where we enjoy playing cornhole and ladder ball, gardening, roasting marshmallows, and grilling out with friends and family. Our community is very family-focused, often holding themed events and seasonal activities (e.g. movies in the park, NASA Space Day, mobile ice rinks during the holidays, petting zoos, and more!). There are four top-rated schools within walking distance of our home. We value education and have already created an account for college tuition to ensure your baby has as many options as possible.
It’s hard to sum ourselves up in such a brief way, but we hope we’ve given you a sense of the kind of people we are and the family we can provide. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us!
