A Letter from Corey & Elizabeth
Hi from Sweet Home Alabama! It’s our honor to share with you a little bit more about what make us a family. We love spending time on a quick weekend getaway, or at one of our grandparent’s house or playing board games in the living room floor. We have two daughters who are ready to be big sisters! We are excited to share vacations, holiday traditions, our faith and our family with your child. We try to make the most of every day we are given! We are open to communication and visits with you, as you feel comfortable. We look forward to spending time getting to know you, and to creating a new story with you and your child.
We love all things small town! We met when Elizabeth was in high school and Corey was in his first year of college, and it was love from the very beginning! We enjoy date nights at our local Mexican restaurant, game night at Dave & Busters, or catching up on laundry at home while watching movies. We make it priority to take a quick trip every anniversary to strengthen our marriage while the kids get spoiled at home by grandparents. We have two girls, Caroline (4) and Katherine (2). They are so fun to be around.
We’ve been thinking about adopting a child for many years, practically since we met, and we are happy to be growing our family in this way! There’s always some level of excitement in our house and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Whether it’s a spontaneous dance party, or popcorn and a movie night, we are up for anything fun! We love to be outside playing on the trampoline, baking chocolate chip cupcakes with our girls, and attending community events downtown.
Corey is such a loving father. He makes sure that the moment he walks in the door from work, his stress stays in the car and he’s focused on our family. His first words to the girls everyday are, “How was your day? Tell me all about it!” He enjoys hunting and golfing on the weekends and working around the house. He’s always the hardest worker and never turns down a good opportunity to teach our children about working with their hands. He’s never too busy to welcome little helping hands on a tough job.
Corey is a mechanical engineer and has a big presence at work. He’s the guy people come to when they need help or advice. He is so even tempered and never makes rash decisions. He is truly a great friend, husband and father. He absolutely loves being a girl dad and can’t wait to take Sunday naps with our next sweet baby, boy or girl! He’s truly the one you always want on your team!
Elizabeth loves being a mom! She use to be an Elementary Teacher and after several years of teaching, she switched careers to be a Children’s Ministry Director. In such a fast paced world, she always slows down and makes memorable moments for our children such as special birthday celebrations, ice cream after a great day at preschool and random surprises “just because.” It’s important to Elizabeth to have a great relationship with our children, and to create a home that is our safe haven.
She is an encourager and will always be our family’s biggest cheerleader. If there’s a big event coming up or even a small task accomplished, she always has a celebration gift or thoughtful gesture. She never goes anywhere empty handed. Elizabeth enjoys shopping for bargains, making homemade holiday candies, going to Disney World, and hiking to find beautiful views. Becoming a mom has come so natural to her. She is truly the best role model for our children!
Our girls are our world, and we wouldn’t have it any other way! Caroline is 4 years old and a little princess. She adores all things Disney Princess and unicorn. She never leaves home without some sort of accessory and has a huge heart. She’s the first to help a peer at preschool and is always ready to play. Katherine is our tender-hearted 2 year old. She never goes anywhere without her baby doll (named Sweet Caroline, after the song by Neil Diamond). Although she’s just 2, she talks like she’s 5. There’s nothing she can’t say!
We have a BIG extended family who all live within 15 minutes from our home! Elizabeth is one of 5 children and Corey is one of 3. Our parents are very active grandparents! They are always up for a spend-the-night party, quick trip to Sonic for milkshakes, or a spontaneous vacation. We can’t wait to take another child on these fun excursions! It takes a village to raise a child and we have the best village! Our families are excited for the day we bring another baby home.
We just built our forever home on 50 acres of family land! Our land conjoins with Elizabeth’s parents’ and grandmother’s house! There’s always fun things to do at our house. We have a golf cart that we ride across the creek to grandparents’ houses, a pumpkin patch to help us decorate for the fall and hay fields to play in for acres! We have plenty room inside our home as well. We have a large playroom upstairs, full of Barbie houses, building blocks, and kitchen accessories! We also have a nursery ready for another baby.
We promise to fiercely love your child with all our hearts and raise him or her in a loving home that values fun, education and faith! We embrace the ups and downs in life because they help us grow individually and as a family. We promise to give your child every opportunity to learn how much God loves them.
We hope you will join us on this journey and allow us to grow a relationship with you. We’d love for you to be a part of our lives, if you’re comfortable. You will always be held in the highest honor in our family, and we promise to teach your child to love his or her story! We are open to any communication with you and look forward to welcoming you and your child into our family!
