Cristabel & Derek’s Baby Registry

Arrival Date: Sep 7th, 2018

Hello friends! After 10 years of wanting to be parents and struggling through infertility, we are now blessed with a surprise bundle of joy 🍼! You might have heard we became parents to a surprise baby boy we adopted from San Antonio, TX and we were totally not prepared (supplies wise) since we thought the adoption process would take at least 6 months, at most 2 years. But we were surprised by Joy when a birth mother selected Derek and I to be parents to her child. He was in the NICU since his birth on 9/7 (we had no idea he existed), we talked to birth mother on 9/14, then we meet baby Sloan and adopted him on 9/15. He was discharged from the NICU on 9/22 🙂! We stayed in Texas until 10/2 for the paperwork to process, but we're happy to be back in Portland to celebrate with friends and family 🎉.
