A Letter from Corey & Sarah

Hello!

Thank you for taking the time to read about us. We are a young, active, military family of 3 excited to begin this journey with you. Since the beginning of our marriage, we have dreamed of growing our family through adoption. We were very blessed to have adopted our teenage daughter, and are thrilled to begin the journey again. We value you and respect whatever level of openness and contact that you would like to have. We’re looking forward to learning more about you!

 

 

About Us

Our story began when we were in high school! We have now been together 15 wonderful years and married over 10. We love spending time together with our daughter Scarlet, whom we were blessed to have adopted in 2019. You can usually find us packing up the car to chase down some sunshine or enjoying the weather on our front porch. We are an outdoorsy family and enjoy picking random places on the map to explore and spending time around the campfire at home. Whether we are heading out are staying in we just enjoy spending time together. We are excited to share our passion for family, fun, and adventure with your child.

About Corey

Corey is one of the most genuinely kind-hearted and thoughtful people I have ever known! He has a great sense of humor, is witty, calm and puts those around him at ease. I am in love with his ability to connect with people and listen thoughtfully to others. He always lending a hand to family, friends, neighbors, and every community we have been stationed. Corey has served in the Air Force for 11 years and I am so proud of all that he has accomplished.

Corey likes to spend his free time working on his motorcycle, playing sports with his squadron, playing flag football, softball, golfing, landscaping, building furniture, and cheering on the 49ers! He is a very patient and fun role model for our daughter Scarlet. Whether Corey and Scarlet are catching Pokemon together or going for a late night ice cream trips he always finds ways to make her smile and feel supported in all her interests. He always takes time to help with homework, reading, stargazing, or zip lining adventures. Corey is excited to share his love for nature and exploring new places, sports, and hiking with our next child!

More About Our Family
Our Special Interests

We are a fun loving easy going family that enjoys seeking new adventures! Our families live across the country and we enjoy hosting them for big family get togethers at our home or traveling to see them. We enjoy all things outdoors and exploring new areas. Our dream vacation would be to travel to all the National Parks across country and fill up our National Park Passport books!

We enjoy doing family projects together like building our own furniture and gardening in the backyard. At night after dinner when we are all gathered around the table you'll usually find us playing games some of our favorites are Scattergories, Unstable Unicorns, Phase 10, and Charades!

Our Faith

We were both raised in a church community and enjoyed participating in Awanas and Campfire as kids. We want to share our connection to faith with our children and provide them with the same opportunities to grow and explore through our military church community.

Our Musical Interest

Corey grew up listening to classic rock with his father and classical with his mother which he still listens to today. Sarah enjoys all types of music from The Beach Boys, Nina Simone, Glen Campbell, Lauren Hill, The Vitamin String Quartet, and Scarlets favorite show tunes and Queen! We enjoy passing around the playlist on long road trips and singing along to the radio.

About Our Home

As a military family we embrace change and have lived in different regions of the country both city and rural. Being stationed in the south has provided us a chance to slow down, enjoy the simple things, and reflect on our future plans! We live on the Air Force base in a two story home with lots of room for family activities like building forts, walking to the swimming pool, lots of parks, walking trails, and friends close by. Our home is open concept with lots of natural light and a sweet room for a nursery. If you were to walk inside our home you would be greeted by our larger than life dog Tucker wanting a cuddle, you would hear music playing since we always keep it playing, the smell of baking (if Scarlet is home from college) and us usually gathered around a table playing games.

We enjoy spending time by the campfire, family BBQs, outdoor movies in the front yard, star gazing, gardening, and playing with our dogs. Our neighborhood has many parks, a youth center, and family fun days throughout the year.
