Crystal and Chris RyanYorba Linda, CA
We think you are courageous and compassionate because you are considering open adoption. We understand how difficult an adoption decision is for you and are excited about welcoming you and your child into our family. We chose open adoption so your child will grow up feeling loved by both birth and adoptive families. We hope to have an open and ongoing relationship with you. We look forward to getting to know you!
Our Interests ...
We share a wide variety of interests like model railroading, watching movies, exploring and spending time with family and friends. Our family celebrates various holidays and we enjoy decorating the house to add to the fun. We look forward to taking our child to places like Disneyland, Legoland, and SeaWorld, which are near our home. We love to travel all over the United States and to different parts of the world to learn about unique cultures and see amazing things. We plan to share our joy of travel by taking our child to places like Europe, the Grand Canyon, and Hawaii. Like children, we have a curiosity about how things operate and how they are made. We can’t wait to take our child on a train ride for the first time or to visit a children’s museum. We go out of our way to visit places that make things like pretzels, automobiles, chocolate, and cheese. How fun it will be to see our child’s face light up the first time we see a pretzel come out of the oven or an automobile go from individual parts to a whole car a family can ride in. Recently, we visited Disney World and thought about how thrilling it will be to take our child there! We can’t wait to experience these things through our child’s eyes!
About Crystal ...
Crystal is honest, hardworking and family oriented. She played the flute in school and is looking forward to sharing music and playing musical instruments with our little one. I can just imagine them playing a duet! Since Crystal loves to read, she and our new baby will enjoy saying their ABC’s and reading books together. I look forward to taking videos of Crystal and our child riding bicycles and roller skating together along the pathways near our home. Crystal is a project manager at an aerospace company and currently works from home.
About Chris ...
Chris is fun-loving and has a great sense of humor. As a big kid himself, Chris will spend many hours with our new baby playing games and learning about science and nature. He looks forward to teaching our child to play catch and cheer for our favorite sports teams. I can imagine Chris playing tickle games with our child and all of us laughing together. Chris has a wonderful singing voice and I look forward to the three of us singing songs during bath time and on car trips. Chris is a program manager at a large aerospace company.
Our Amazing Community …
We live in Yorba Linda in Southern California (about 20 minutes from Disneyland). Our community is family oriented and our clubhouse hosts many events throughout the year, which is a great way to meet other families in our neighborhood. Kids can dress up in their favorite costume to attend the Halloween carnival, decorate their bicycles to enter the 4th of July parade or try to catch the most fish or the biggest fish in the fishing derby. The Time for Tots program is also a wonderful way for our child to make new friends. At the clubhouse we can play ping pong, board or card games, basketball or volleyball. We like to walk along the various trails in our neighborhood to enjoy the trees, flowers and green grass. We often walk along one of the trails to the neighborhood park which has both a playground and two baseball diamonds. These are used regularly during the year. The tennis courts are also within walking distance. If we want a change from enjoying the spa in our back yard, we go swimming in one of the local swimming pools. Sometimes we swim in the junior Olympic pool where the local swim team, the Eagle Rays, swim. Maybe one day we’ll be able to cheer our child on at one of their local swim meets. We enjoy boating on the community lake and are excited about sharing this wonderful pastime with our child. The annual Holiday of Lights boat parade in December is spectacular. The clubhouse provides cookies and cocoa to enjoy while watching the boat parade. We especially enjoy boating during the holidays when all the houses on the lake have been decorated so beautifully.
