Chris and Kharena
Thanks for taking the time to learn a little about our family. We are Kharena and Chris and very excited to become first-time parents through adoption. We are a young, energetic couple seeking to welcome a child into our home and hearts. We have always known that we wanted children and after dealing with infertility, we began our journey to adoption.
We are both born and raised in Detroit, married and have a two-year-old mini-schnauzer, named Diesel. Chris is a firefighter and paramedic, while Kharena is an educator working for a university. We love our careers but plan to take time off work especially for the first year of the baby’s life. Although we are young, we have been working in our career fields for a decade which allows us a lot of room to take time off, then resume our careers when we are ready. We want to spend as much time as possible caring for and bonding with the little one.
Our family is very close and we spend time together regularly. We live in close vicinity and get together not just on holidays and special occasions, but also for fun every first Sunday of the month. This will be Kharena’s parent's first grandchild and they are over the moon with excitement. Chris’ mom is particularly praying for a granddaughter since this would be her first but she would be ecstatic for any gender. The entire family can’t wait for another person to shower with love.
More than anything we want you to know that we will love your child unconditionally. We know that you are making a very tough decision and we respect your strength and courage. We are praying for you and hope that whatever you choose, you will know that you are doing the right thing for your child out of love.
