Family oriented, fun-loving, hard-working and supportive are some characteristics that make our family and our home warm and welcoming. We appreciate you taking the time to read a little about our story and considering the values we have to share. We are devoted to each other, committed to our role as parents, and excited to grow our family.
We admire your strength and courage as you embark on this journey, whatever the outcome may be. Our goal is the same - to provide a potential path that has the best possible outcome for a child through unconditional love, support, guidance and encouragement.
We have been happily married for almost ten years. We were brought together by our love for travel, our open minds, and our shared family values. We met when Angel was in law school and Cory was an Apprentice Ironworker. Both Cory and Angel have successful careers balanced against a strong family-centric home life. We have a six year old daughter, Elle, and a one-year old puppy, Fenwick. Elle is a beautiful, happy little girl who absolutely loves anything to do with water, which is perfect as we live on Lake Michigan. Fenwick, a Labradoodle, also loves the lake and adores kids.
We love to travel, and have been all around the world. We would love to instill our wanderlust in our children - and already have a few stamps in Elle’s passport. Angel is an avid reader, and soaks up as much knowledge about as many topics as possible. Cory is much more adventurous, and takes the family on adventures ranging from snowboarding to paddle boarding.
We are not able to have any more children naturally but are so excited about adoption, as both of us were raised by step- and adoptive parents. We’ve always loved the phrase “it takes a village to raise a child” and believe the more people who love a child, the better off they will be in life.
