Ryan & Crystal
Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. We admire your strength and love you have for your child. We hope that you can get a sense of how much love our family has to offer you and your child. We promise you will always be a part of your child's life so that he or she can have an understanding and appreciation for the tremendous sacrifice you made out of pure love for him or her.
Our Favorite Vacation Spot
We enjoy spending our summer vacation at Garden City Beach which is family friendly as well as entertaining. We enjoy spending the week with Crystal's sister and her husband and their two daughters. We love hanging out on the beach, playing in the ocean, building sand castles, and watching the kids catch the baby crabs along the shore. Walking the pier is another activity the kids really enjoy. They get excited to see all the different types of fish the fishermen pull in. Crystal and her sister take the kids seashell hunting up and down the beach, it is a tradition they have had since they both were kids.
The kids really enjoy being at the beach during July Fourth because of all the beautiful fireworks up and down the beach. We like going to the aquarium and getting to see all the different sea animals up close and personal. Another favorite is taking the kids to the arcades, and the mini carnival. It would be a blessing to include your child in making new memories with our family.
Our Boys, Landen & Hunter
We have two sons. Landen is ours together and Hunter is Crystal's son from a previous relationship. Ryan has been in Hunter's life since the age of three and has always treated Hunter like his very own. Hunter is 16-years-old, he has always been involved in sports and has played on many sports teams throughout the years. He is very outgoing and enjoys making new friends.
Landen is 12-years-old. He is extremely caring, and shy at times but loves everyone. Landen spends his free time drawing, playing with Legos, sculpting things out of clay, and playing outside with the neighborhood kids. Hunter and Landen both are looking forward to sharing their childhood growing up with a new sibling.
We are a very diverse family as well as a community. Our children attend schools that are very diverse in many races, ethnic backgrounds and religion. Our children have many friends of different races and cultures.
Crystal's sister and brother-in-law are an interracial couple, he is African-American and she is Caucasian, they have a biracial daughter as well as a Caucasian daughter that they adopted at birth. Both of our extended families are of all races and are a great support system when needed. We will always be open to exploring the child's culture and ethnic background. We will make sure he or she is educated on their culture as well as traditions and incorporate them in our daily life. Our families are full of love and very accepting of any race.
Our House and Neighborhood
We live in a three-bedroom brick home with a big backyard for plenty of play time, it is the same home that Crystal's dad grew up in. We love the fact that, even though he isn't with us any longer, our kids can make memories within the same walls he once had. Our neighbor's look out for one another and we have watched our children grow up together.
We enjoy spending time in our living room often watching movies, doing arts and crafts and talking about our day. Our neighborhood is extremely diverse, and the kids have many friends of different races and backgrounds to play with. Our community's schools are also diverse and have many different cultures and backgrounds among the children that attend them. Our Elementary School, Middle school and High school are all within five minutes of our home.
Our community holds annual Thanksgiving and Christmas parades, where the kids get to see Santa, eat cotton candy, and see all the fun floats. We have many family parks within ten minutes of our home that we visit during the summer months. The kids enjoy feeding the ducks, riding the carousel playing in the splash pads, putt put, paddle boating and seeing the small animals there. Our town and nearby towns have plenty of kid-friendly activities to attend throughout every season.
Our Extended Families
We both come from very tight-knit families. Both of our families play such a big role in our lives and we tend to spend a lot of time with them both. Crystal has a younger sister who has two daughters that call her TT and Ryan Uncle RyRy. Our youngest niece was a blessing through private adoption, we are forever grateful to her birth mother who we all still spend time with. Crystal's sister and brother-in-law live around the block, so it's not out of the ordinary for us to spend time together weekly having family dinners or simply hanging out with one another. Being within walking distance, our children get to have a lot of cousin time, and are more like brother and sister.
Ryan is the middle child of his two brothers, they as well as his mother live only 5 minutes away. We spend the holidays and many weekends with both of our families, having family dinner or simply enjoying each other's company. Both of our families are very supportive of our adoption journey, and cannot wait to love and make memories with him or her.
From Us to You
Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know our family. We are so excited for you to get to know us and us to get to know you as well. We want you to know how much we admire you for having the strength and courage it takes to make an adoption plan for your baby.
We cannot begin to imagine how difficult this decision and time in your life are. More than anything we want you to know we will love your child with all of our hearts, raise him or her with morals, values as well as give them the best education they need to succeed in life.
We met in 2008 through a family friend and we've been inseparable since. Hunter connected with Ryan immediately when they met and have always had a close bond with one another. We found out we were expecting a son not long after we met. Ryan and I were so excited to add another child into our lives and we knew then we wanted to expand our family in the future.
We married in June 2013 and are now coming up on thirteen years together. We can honestly say we love each other more with each day that passes. We both have always wanted a large family with at least three children. Adoption was something we both knew in our hearts we wanted to pursue, after seeing how fulfilling it was for my sister and her husband to adopt their daughter, it gave us the courage to move forward with adoption.
We want you to have comfort in knowing you will always have a special place in your child life. We will honor the amount of communication you are comfortable with. We would love to exchange emails, phone calls as well as visits with you in the future. We will continue to pray for you and your baby as you make such a heartfelt decision for you and your child's future.
