|More About Our Family
|What We're Passionate About...|
We are passionate about open, and honest communication. Emily grew up with four sisters and parents who prioritized authentic living and cultivating good communication in relationships. We love to discuss things with each other and look forward to instilling this love in our child as they grow up. We're also passionate about people and opening up our hearts and home to them. We love hospitality and want our home to be a safe haven for all who enter.
Our faith is the most important and treasured part of our lives. We love the Lord and seek to put him at the center of all we do. We were both blessed to have been raised in Christian homes, and are so thankful for our parent's influence and example in our lives of strong faith. We have an amazing church that we're active members of, and truly consider our church body to be our family. We also both have a special place in our heart for youth, and we love hosting youth events so we can get to know them on a deeper level.
|Our Musical Interests|
We both play the piano, although Cory plays far better. Cory also sings and plays guitar. He's the Worship leader at our local church, and is an extremely gifted musician. We both love music and look forward to sharing that passion with our child.
|About Our Home|
We just bought our 3-bedroom home in a quiet, family, friendly neighborhood. We have lots of windows and natural light, and a fenced-in backyard we enjoy relaxing in come evening. Emily has a love for creating comforting atmospheres and has transformed our house into a cozy oasis that we love being in. We love hosting people for dinner and having game nights with other couples (which Cory loves smoking meat for). We love our home and all the opportunities it provides!
|We live in the state of...|
Texas! We are currently stationed here for Cory's work flying for the Coast Guard. We really love this unique area for its fun and access to the ocean! We love walking on the beach and letting our dog, Lily, play and swim in the water. And while we don't eat out much, we do splurge on the amazing tacos here and like taking them to the bay and watching the sunset in the HUGE Texas sky.
|We Prefer a Child Who Is...
|Age of Child|
Newborn- 1 year old
We would love either boy or girl!
|Ethnicity of Child||Any race|
|Future Contact with Birth Family|
We would love to stay connected through letters, pictures, and visits, if you're comfortable with it!
Thank you so much for taking the time to get to know us a little better! We promise to raise your child in a stable, loving, Christian home, and cover them with a deep, steadfast love all their life. They'll have a home that's filled with a lot of laughter, deep conversations, and special family traditions. They'll also have an amazing extended family, with lots of cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents, who will love on them SO well. We hope to get to know you more and build a relationship with you that is as open as you'd prefer!
