Maggie, 35, was born in Evanston, Illinois and raised in Glenview, Illinois. Maggie is very close to her family, and the importance of being together as a family was learned from an early age.

She is supportive, loving, caring, and hardworking. Maggie likes to cook, bake, exercise, and spend time with family and friends. She is a special education teacher supporting students with a wide range of abilities. She loves to go on trips and adventures. She will be a caring mother.
Chris, 42, was born in Chicago, Illinois and was raised in the Chicago suburbs. He was raised with the value of family. From birthdays, to holidays, to celebrations, to bbq’s, to challenging times and loss, and to spending time together, family is a big part of his life. Chris grew up with 6 uncles and 6 aunts, 12 cousins along with grandparents and one sibling. He is fun, creative, supportive, and hardworking. Chris enjoys hanging out with friends and family, being funny, spending time outdoors, going to shows and sporting events, and his career as a teacher.

Together, we live in Glenview, Illinois and love to spend our time traveling, going on walks, cookouts, and enjoying concerts and shows. We support and volunteer time at Misericordia, a community for persons with developmental disabilities to live, work and engage in social opportunities to help maximize their own potential. Not only does this type of work mirror our careers, one of our bridesmaids in our wedding is also a resident. We are excited to begin our family through adoption to include a child in our traditions, adventures, and celebrations along with actively participating in the child’s interests and adventures. We are loving, caring, supportive and will raise a child to be happy and to be a good person. We have so much love to give.
Maggie and Chris
