Chris & Katie
Hi! We are Chris and Katie! We are so excited to become parents. We live close to downtown Indianapolis with our dog, Kramer. We have been together for over 10 years and married for 4. Chris works for the post office and helps teach the new hires. Katie works as a family medicine doctor and takes care of lots of pregnant patients and babies. We love to walk around the city, go for hikes and spend time with family. We can’t wait to take our future child on many adventures as we love to explore the National Parks! We each have large families and our child will grow up with family close by. We would love to get to know you!
We are from the same hometown, although we did not really know each other very well in high school. Years later, we were working similar jobs and started spending time together due to mutual friends. We got along so well and had similar interests, we started dating and have been together since. We even had a long distance relationship when Katie was in Medical School, which taught us a lot about investing in our relationship. We moved to Indianapolis together in 2016 where we purchased our first home and we love it! We always enjoy spending time with each other and our dog. We are looking forward to the next step in our story, becoming parents.
Chris’ words about Katie:
Katie gets the absolute best out of everyone that she is around. I know that she is my biggest fan and I want nothing more than to be my best for her. She has incredible determination and drive to achieve her lofty goals. She has developed such strong bonds and relationships over the years with friends and colleagues alike. I love watching her interact with our nieces and nephew. They adore their Aunt Katie and enjoy playing board games such as Clue, Candyland, and Jumanji with her. She is a nurturing dog mom to our dog, Kramer and I know her care and support for our future child will be ten times that! I believe that these characteristics will make her a great mom.
Katie’s words about Chris:
Chris is one of the kindest people you will ever meet! He seems very quiet at first, but I can assure you he is not! Chris constantly shows his love for others through acts of kindness whether that is taking extra time to help someone at work, going above and beyond to make sure I am well taken care of or spoiling our dog with many walks, treats and constant attention. He is very active in the lives of our nieces and nephew and he is one of their favorite people. I am so grateful to have him in my life, I cannot imagine a better partner. He is genuine, loving and always kind. He will go down in the hall of fame for the kind of father I know he will be. He will be an amazing role model and love our child unconditionally. I cannot wait to be alongside him for this next chapter.
We live in a smaller urban community outside of downtown Indianapolis with many exciting things to do. We have a lovely backyard with a garden and have been growing tomatoes, peppers, carrots and garlic. Many of our neighbors have young children. We go for walks nightly and many families are out with their small children and dogs throughout the neighborhood. We have plenty of parks and walking trails nearby. We can easily walk to several coffee shops, restaurants and ice cream stores!
We are very close to both sides of our family! We are fortunate that our families live very close to one another. When we go home to visit, which is very often, we are able to see everyone since they live only a few miles apart! We want our child to grow up around family just how we did. Our child will feel special on both sides of our family. This will be the first grandchild for Katie’s parents and Chris’ side already has plenty of cousins to grow up with. Our nieces and nephew are really looking forward to a little cousin!
We plan to be very involved and dedicated parents showing continued support in whatever may come. We plan to act as role models showing them our love and kindness not only for each other but those around us. Our child will be the center of our world. We plan to encourage them to follow their interests, but will guide them throughout their life as needed. We promise to always always work hard and do what is best for our child. We welcome an open adoption and truly believe the more love for our child, the better!
