Chris' Side Of The Family
Chris’ family lives a little further away, but still close enough for us to get together regularly. His parents, sister, brother-in-law, and all of his extended family are a 30-45 minute drive from us. His parents, Paul and Sue, love to bring the family together for dinners, games, cookouts, and parties. His sister, Jessica, is a nut for 90’s pop culture, which is not hard to catch glimpses of in her sense of fashion. She has a witty sense of humor that will keep you on your toes. Her husband, Mike, loves the outdoors and the two of them are avid campers. Chris’ mom is quirky and adores children. She works as a paraprofessional at Chris and Jessica’s childhood school. Having volunteered for many years at the local library, she is always on the lookout for books to give to others. Much like Erica’s Nonna, she will always try to feed you. It is a rule that you leave with leftovers. She can’t tell a joke to save her life, but his dad will have you doubling over with his quips and one-liners. He’s hilarious and has stories for days. A great handyman, he built the house they live in. He’s retired now, but keeps busy with projects around the house. When he’s not building something, he and a few of his lifelong friends write and record music together. Everyone is elated at the hope of our adoption and can’t wait to welcome a new little one into the family!
