A Letter from David & Cheryl
Hello! We are a friendly, stable, and caring family from Pennsylvania. Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child. We are excited to be first-time parents, and will pass down our love for faith, family, and traveling the world. Your child would be a cherished member of our family, we welcome an open adoption with you, if you’d like.
We both work in education and will provide a wonderful life full of opportunities for your child to pursue goals with school, dreams, and talents. We would love to get to know you and your hopes for your child through this adoption.
We’ve been best friends since college and have been happily married since we graduated. After years of infertility, we feel led to become parents through adoption.
Spending time together is a priority and it makes us strong as a couple. We would love to share our lives with a child and make memories traveling abroad, visiting the beach in the summer, taking walks around our neighborhood, cheering for our favorite sports teams, attending church together, and visiting friends and family.
Cheryl is the most genuine and caring person I know. She is always keeping me smiling with her positive personality. Cheryl enjoys her work with religious education. Her work with youth makes her look forward, even more, to becoming a mother.
Cheryl loves shopping, taking pictures, cooking, and anything hands-on and creative, like crafting, scrapbooking, or cross-stitching. I am so excited to see her become the mother she is meant to be.
David is caring, smart, and fun. He is a middle school principal who takes time to get to know his students and provides any help they need. David is my biggest encourager to follow my dreams, and I know, as a father, he will encourage our child to do the same!
You can find David putting together puzzles, problem-solving (he was a math teacher for years!), gardening in our backyard, and spending time outdoors. His supportive and understanding nature will make him an amazing father!
Cheryl is very close to her mother and has a large extended family who we see often. David is one of 5 children, and most of his family lives in California. We visit David’s family for holidays and celebrations throughout the year. Our family is supportive of our plans to adopt. They look forward to welcoming another child into the family!
We are excited to share our family traditions as parents. Every Sunday we attend church and have a family meal afterward. For the holidays we enjoy Christmas Eve service and celebrating with food and family. And we always look forward to our annual summer beach trip!
We were raised Catholic and our faith means so much to us. We both teach religious education and feel blessed to serve those around us and our community. We will raise our child in a faith-filled household, surrounded by our supportive church family.
Our home has 4 bedrooms, and we’re turning one room into a nursery for our future child. The living room and family room have plenty of space for a child to run around and play (also lots of storage for toys!). Our backyard is spacious with a beautiful lawn and David’s flower garden. There’s a lot of room to play & explore, with great weather for snowmen in the winter, fall color and piles of leaves, and summers at the park.
We love living here! We have friendly neighbors, and it’s common to see children playing outside when the weather is nice. We are only a 10-minute drive from the city with fun attractions like amusement parks, state parks, museums, shopping, and great culture.
We promise to raise your child in a safe, loving, and stable environment for him or her to flourish! We will encourage your child every day so they are confident to follow their dreams. We will raise your child to be a good person and they will know that they are loved.
We promise to honor you as a special part of our family’s story. If you’d like, we hope to stay in contact with you through letters, photos, and visits, however you’re comfortable. We’d love to talk with you! To learn more about us, please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.
Praying for you,
David & Cheryl
