Hello! We are a devoted and hardworking couple who love people! Our favorite thing to do is have people over for great food, fellowship, and conversation. We value going out of our way to support our friends and family as much as we can, and they do the same for us, too. We are so grateful to have found each other, and we think we make an amazing team to parent, love, and support your child.
We found each other on a Christian Facebook group for singles. After chatting, we quickly learned that we were like-minded and lived only 15 minutes away from each other. We got engaged 7 months after we met and married 4 months later. It was certainly love at first sight!
Together we love to:
• Play board games and corn hole
• Cook, grill, and enjoy good food
• Watch reruns of Star Trek
• Go on walks and hike on trails
• Read and have fellowship with our church friends
• Visit historical places
I work part-time for my family’s food business and my schedule is extremely flexible. Once we adopt, I will be a stay-at-home mom and only work when Sterling is home. I love to bake and cook, especially for others. I also enjoy board games, entertaining people at our house, and traveling to the mountains with family.
What Sterling loves about Lisa: Lisa is a loving and fun spouse! She pays attention to details and has a genuine concern for others. These traits will make her a nurturing and caring mother. She has so much joy when she is around children, and I can’t wait to see that joy on her face every single day once we become parents.
I work as a ship fitter at a welding school. Seeing other people obtain welding skills makes my job very rewarding. On the weekends, I enjoy working in the yard or fixing things around the house, reading, and helping out with some guys from church.
What Lisa loves about Sterling: Sterling is a loyal and hardworking husband, son, and friend. If he has the opportunity, he will always choose to help others. He doesn’t mind getting dirty and sweaty if it’s for a good cause. He can be goofy at times, too! He loves playing games with his nieces and nephews and quite often you might find him playing ball with the children at church.
Our Home in Virginia
We live in a brick, ranch-style home in a quiet neighborhood. The living space and kitchen are huge and are great for entertaining and connecting with friends and family. We have a big back yard that we can’t wait to see children play in one day.
We are conveniently located near the city and the country! We enjoy the options of recreational activities and attractions that the city offers, but also the peacefulness of exploring the country.
Both sets of our parents and Sterling’s extended family live nearby and are very active in our lives. We get together often to vacation, hike, have dinner, and play games. We have six nieces and three nephews who we love to have fun with! The rest of our extended family lives out-of-state but we enjoy visiting them often.
Every chance we have, we will make sure your child knows exactly how loved he or she is. Your child will be our number one priority and we will honor our family’ s adoption story from day one. If you chose us to parent your child, we will…
• Give your child a caring and supportive home.
• Share Lisa’s Korean culture and food.
• Teach your child about our faith and love for others.
• Speak lovingly of you and how our family came together.
• Support your child in all their endeavors and pursuits.
We would love to share an open adoption with you and keep in touch throughout your child’s life, including visits, if you’re comfortable. Thank you for considering us!
