Corey & Amy
Words cannot express how humbled we are by your courage and love. We are so grateful that you would consider us to raise your precious child. Family is our number one priority. We love to laugh, travel and spend time with extended family. We value God, honesty, love and fun! We invite you to see our profile as we share our hearts full of love. We are beyond thrilled to pursue adoption, a lifelong dream of our family. Our son is so excited about his role as big brother! We would be extremely excited about the possibility of adopting twins into our family. Thank you for considering us!
Education We Will Provide
We both value education for ourselves and for our children. We are life-long learners and have pursued traditional education in colleges, trade schools and on-going adult education courses. But, we also value general education in learning as you live normal, everyday life. Graham has learned his colors and letters simply by asking him what he sees as we go to the park or ride in the car. There is no pressure to know things or perform academically. We will provide the education style that our children will need and desire. We will pursue traditional education in great schools but we will be active learners as we read, explore and learn from others. Relationships are also another tool of education. We have people from all walks of life around us and our children will be raised knowing and loving people from all over the world. They will eat food from India, hear personal stories about Vietnam, have family from other cultures and serve others who may be in need. We would hope to provide an education that would build values like character, integrity, expertise, common sense, kindness, perseverance, generosity and love. We will pursue building the whole person and not just their intellect.
Our Family Traditions
We are big on traditions in our family. We celebrate Christmas surrounded by our extended family. We cook together, eat and then open gifts by the tree. We watch the same Christmas movies each year and often build snowmen or play on the farm, depending on the weather. We also send cards and donations to families with children in the hospital each year in honor of our son Hudson’s fight with congenital heart disease. Birthdays are celebrated for a whole week with decorations around the house, fun craft projects and outings, family and of course, cake and ice cream. We have a silly tradition that you must get a picture taken under the table on your birthday. We do that each year. Our church offers many programs for children throughout the year and we participate in service projects around Thanksgiving, run 5ks in the spring and the children participate in the Christmas programs.
Fun Facts About Us
Our House and Neighborhood
Our home is a fun place to be! We enjoy family dinners together, playing games and watching movies. We also love music! There are lots of musicians in our family so it is common to gather around the piano with guitars and sing together as a family.
We live in a lovely, family-focused neighborhood with several playgrounds, children and pets! We love to sit outside on the patio and grill out. Our neighborhood is surrounded by beautiful parks where we ride bikes. The school system is ranked top in the area and families move to our neighborhood to be part of these amazing schools.
Our church is a thriving community of loving people who are committed to our lives. There are so many amazing events for children at our church. We often participate in fun 5k’s, service projects, amazing dramas and concerts and weekly classes for young children.
We live close to Chicago and have enjoyed seeing the zoo, museums and the fun sites. We love finding the history of the city first hand and trying new restaurants.Even though we live within driving distance to a big city, we live in a family-focused suburb with lots of outdoor space to play and explore. We love raising our son in a fun, engaging area with other children his age. The playground is just waiting on us to bring our new addition along to join all of the fun!
Our Extended Families
Our family is big on traditions! We celebrate birthdays and holidays with lots of family, food and fun! We both grew up on big farms with large families with so much love and adventure. Corey is one of seven siblings and his nieces and nephew love to play with their fun uncle! He has had a large role in investing in their lives. We spend several weeks out of the year on the family farm in New Hampshire with loving grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.
Amy’s family enjoys going to the beach together with Papa Joe and Mawmaw who love the grandchildren deeply. Children have brought so much laughter to them and they love to sing, dance and play silly games together. Amy has two married brothers, one of which is also in the process of adopting. We are so excited that our children will have cousins who will also know the special gift of adoption. We also get to spend several weeks of the year in North Carolina with Amy’s family.
We are very close to our families and talk to both sides of the family nearly every day. Our families cannot wait to meet our new addition and they have expressed so much gratitude for you as you consider the incredible decision of adoption.
From Us to You
We do not know the circumstances of your adoption journey but we do know it is out of deep love for the child you now carry that you are considering adoption. If you pick us as the parents for your baby, we will always share your selflessness and love in this decision of adoption for this precious baby.
Here is a glimpse into our lives:
We met in New York six years ago and have been married four years. During our years of dating we talked about dreams for our family. We talked about important things like God and careers and we talked about our desires for children. We hoped to have children and to adopt children. Our hearts have always been drawn to adoption even before we met one another.
We love God and each other deeply. We are committed to one another’s joy, successes and growth. We love our son, Graham and he brings so much delight to our day. We value people over things and desire to live financially stable, generous, debt free lives. Currently Corey works as a helicopter pilot and Amy is a stay at home mom.
We have been preparing for this adoption journey by talking with close friends who have adopted as well as family who are currently in the adoption process. We are not alone in this journey because we have our family, church and friends who are actively connected to our journey and so excited to love this little addition. Papa Roger, Grandma, Papa Joe and Mawmaw are the best grandparents any child could ever want. We would not change either of our childhoods as we were loved unconditionally, in stable, healthy homes. Our parents are tender, funny, engaging and deeply sacrificial in their love for their grandchildren.
We will love and cherish our children with all of our hearts sharing our values of God, family, integrity and service to those in need. We will nurture our children’s talents, desires, skills and hopes for their future. We will love God in front of them in our decisions and priorities. We love to laugh together but have also learned to cry together in hard times. We do not know your exact story but we do know what it is like to surrender a child. Our precious son, Hudson, lived with a severe heart defect for eight months before passing away. As parents who want the very best for their children, we did everything, even moved to another state for almost a year, to get the care our son needed. Our hearts will always love our Hudson and in some way we can identify with your desire to want the very, very best for the baby you now carry. We understand making the hardest decisions of your life for the sake of your child’s life. We are so humbled to know you and we are so thrilled for the opportunity for our family to grow through the gift of adoption, all because of your bravery and love.
We hope to celebrate adoption by celebrating your choice of life for your baby. We will talk about you as a hero in our family. We will share the blessing of his or her adoption story regularly. We will celebrate your courage and selfless love. If you would desire photos, updates, letters and emails, we would be so happy to share how your precious child is growing and thriving.
Our hearts connect to you even though we haven’t met you yet. We pray for you often as you walk this adoption journey. We are ready and committed to loving this baby for the rest of our lives. We love both of our sons, Graham and Hudson, and if you would desire, we can’t wait to share that same love for the baby you are carrying. Our children, biological and adopted, will be loved deeply and unconditionally.
We would welcome with open hearts and arms the possibility of twins and when we ask little Graham about growing our family, he always replies that wants two babies!
Thank you for choosing life for your child. What a brave, selfless decision! Thank you for learning about our family. We hope to meet you someday.
With love and admiration,
Corey & Amy
