Corey & Amy

We are humbled and amazed by your love, courage, and strength. We are so grateful that you would consider us to raise your precious child. Family is our number one priority and we are beyond thrilled to grow our family. We love to laugh, travel, and spend time with our big extended family. Our hearts are bursting with love and affection that we cannot wait to share with a new baby. We are beyond thrilled to pursue adoption, a lifelong dream of our family. We would be extremely excited about the possibility of adopting a baby boy, a baby girl, twins, or siblings in our family. Thank you for considering us!

Our Family Traditions

Big Brother Can't Wait!

We are big on traditions. We celebrate Christmas surrounded by our big extended family. We cook together, eat, and then open gifts by the tree. Birthdays are celebrated for a whole week with surprise decorations around the house. We also have a silly tradition where you must get a picture taken under the table on your birthday. We have another silly thing we do when we hear Corey coming home from work. We pretend to be asleep and when he walks in the door, we jump up and yell, “Surprise!” He always pretends to be surprised. Graham starts saying, “Daddy’s home! Daddy’s home!” On Saturday mornings, Corey and Graham go on a “donut date” together. He can’t wait to have a little sibling to take along too! They also love to set up a tent either in the yard or in our living room to play “camping” together. At bedtime, we sing songs and read books together. We also end up giggling together for a while. Our home is filled with laughter, music, and fun and we cannot wait to share these fun traditions with another little one. We look forward to building more traditions with him or her soon.

  • Education We Will Provide

    We value education for ourselves and for our children. We are curious life-long learners. We also value 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. We will provide the education style that our children will need and desire. 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 House and Neighborhood

    Home Sweet Home

    Our home is a fun place to be! We live in a beautiful two-story home with a beautiful yard made just for kids in mind. We just recently got the nursery and crib set up for when it is time to grow our family through adoption. We enjoy dinners together, do craft projects, play games, and watch movies. We also love music! There are many musicians and singers in our family so it is common to gather around the piano with guitars and sing together as a family.

    We live on a tree-lined street in a lovely, family-focused neighborhood with several playgrounds and lots of children. We love to sit in our backyard in the gazebo and grill hot dogs and hamburgers while our son plays or swims. Our neighborhood is surrounded by several beautiful parks where we ride bikes and go for runs.

    We live across the street from one of the schools and the school system is ranked top in the area. Families move specifically to our neighborhood to be part of these award-winning schools.

    We love our community and enjoy weekly activities at our gym like the climbing wall, pool, and painting parties. Our town offers so many fun festivals and shows for the holidays. In fact, they have a contest every year for the best Christmas lights so everyone extensively decorates their homes. It is a lot of fun and our son loves it. We often participate in fun 5k runs, service projects at Thanksgiving, amazing dramas and concerts, and weekly activities for children.

    Also, we live close to the big city of Chicago and have enjoyed seeing the zoo, museums, and the fun sites of the city. Our son loves exploring life in the big city.

    Our Extended Families

    Corey's Family

    We celebrate birthdays and holidays with lots of family and fun! Corey and Amy both grew up on farms with large families with so much love and adventure. We cannot wait to bring this little baby to the family farms! Corey is one of seven siblings and his nieces and nephew love to play with their fun uncle! We spend several weeks out of the year on the family farm in New Hampshire with loving grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Corey parents are thrilled to love a new grandbaby.

    Amy's family

    Amy’s family enjoys dinners together and also going on vacation together with Papa Joe and Mawmaw. They love to sing, dance, and play silly games together. Amy has two married brothers and a baby girl niece. We go to North Carolina every couple of months to spend time with Amy’s family at the farm. Amy’s parents are so excited to love another grandchild. They are telling everyone how excited they are!

    From Us to You

    From our hearts to your heart,

    We do not know all the reasons for your adoption journey but we do know it is out of deep love that you are considering adoption. If you pick us as the parents for your baby, we will always share your selflessness and love in your decision.

    Here is a small glimpse into our lives:

    We met while living in New York seven years ago and have been married for almost six years. During our years of dating, we talked about dreams for our family. We talked about important things like God and careers and as we fell in love, we talked about our desires for children. We love God and we love each other deeply. We are fully committed to one another for our lives and we are certainly best friends.

    Because of some complicated medical challenges, we cannot have more biological children and our hearts have always been drawn to adoption even before we met one another.

    We value living a financially stable life for our children. Currently, Corey works as a helicopter pilot and Amy works part-time as a writer from home to be able to more spend time with Graham and the baby we adopt.

    We have also been getting ready to adopt by setting up the nursery and preparing Graham for his role as big brother. We deeply love our son, Graham. He brings so much delight to our day. He is hilarious, imaginative, and fills our home with so much laughter. He asks almost every day when will we bring home his baby brother or sister.

    We are not alone on this journey because we have our family, church, and friends who are also so excited to love this little addition. Papa Roger, Grandma, Papa Joe, and Mawmaw are the best grandparents any child could ever want. They are thrilled to meet their next grandbaby!

    Our home is filled with laughter. Corey and Graham love to be silly and make Amy laugh. We have also learned to cry together in hard times which has made us even stronger as a couple and as a family. 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 to get the care our son needed. In some small 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 even if it hurts so much. We are so humbled to know you.

    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, emails, or visits, we would be so happy to share how your precious child is growing and thriving. We will respect your desires.

    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 would welcome with open hearts and arms the possibility of a baby boy, baby girl, twins, or siblings. When we ask little Graham about growing our family, he says that he is so ready to show off his big brother skills. He tells everyone that he is getting a baby soon.

    Thank you for choosing life for your child. What a brave, selfless decision! Thank you for considering us as potential adoptive parents for your precious child. We are so honored and humbled. We hope to meet you someday soon.

    With love and admiration,

    Corey & Amy
