Feature Post: Daniel and Christy

One of my favorite parts of administrating this blog is getting to feature hopeful adoptive couples. If you would like to have your family featured and you are currently certified to adopt, contact me at ldsadoptionconnection at yahoo dot com. Thanks! -Elise
Meet Daniel and Christy
There were fireworks the day Daniel and I met. Literally. It was the 4th of July and we were out with a group of friends. That was the first time I recognized Daniel’s potential as a father. We were sitting on a blanket as we were waiting for the fireworks to start. A little boy was nearby blowing bubbles and Daniel was playing along, catching them and making that little boy smile and laugh. I’m not ashamed to admit that it was the moment I started to fall for him.

We’ve been married for nine years and we’ve been hoping for a child for almost that whole time. We’d discussed adoption when we were engaged and we both felt like it was an option for us. It’s such a blessing that we’ve been able to work toward this dream together and we’re excited that someday we might be chosen to become parents. We’re hoping to have an open adoption so our child can know and love their first family.

We are artists in our own ways. Daniel draws and I’m a photographer. I’m in love with running. Daniel could spend days reading. We are both a little geeky since Daniel’s love of Star Wars and Star Trek is contagious. We have a dog named Doozer who absolutely adores little kids and keeps us laughing. We have a great life and we are excited to have the chance to be parents through the miracle of adoption!

We have so much more to tell you about us, so please come visit us at and feel free to drop us a line or ask us a question on our Q&A Tuesday blog posts!
