A Letter from Corin & Shana
Hello! We are Corin and Shana and we are so excited to meet you! Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to share who we are. We are thrilled to expand our family through the joy and blessing of adoption, and we believe it is God’s will to do so. We have two adult children, CJ and Kahrin, and two hypoallergenic super friendly dogs, Biscuit and Savannah. Our home is always filled with home-cooked meals, freshly baked treats, and an outpouring of love. We have so much love to share and look forward to loving your child unconditionally, supporting them in all that they do, and filling their life with endless possibilities. We have prayed for you and your child and look forward to getting to know you and sharing letters, pictures, and visits as you are comfortable.
We were born and raised in beautiful South Carolina. Our life together began in 2009 after meeting at our college homecoming football game on Halloween Weekend. After dating long-distance for a few years, Shana relocated to Ohio and we became husband and wife! She instantly took to being a second mom to Corin’s two adult kids, CJ and Kahrin.
We have now been happily married for over 6 years. A few years ago, we moved back to South Carolina to be closer to our families. Family is important to us and we love spending time with them. We also love going to church, traveling, hosting family and friends at our home, attending football games, and watching movies.
Due to infertility, we have been unable to conceive naturally. We are excited to grow our family through the blessing of adoption. As parents, we are excited to raise our child together with Christian values and love. We are looking forward to including them in our family fun and a life full of adventure. We are also excited to share with them our love for God, shower them with unconditional love, support, and compassion.
Corin is my best friend and my true love. He is an amazing husband and father, a great provider for our family, and our number one supporter in all that we do. He is retired from the military and currently works as a marketing analyst. He has two wonderful children from a previous marriage, and he loves golfing, going to and watching football games, and swimming. He is our family travel planner and wherever we go on vacation, he always seems to find a golf course to play on. Corin is an amazing father and is looking forward to welcoming our next child into the family and attending sporting events and teaching them to golf and swim.
Shana is my true love and I am blessed to call her my wife and my friend. She has a heart of gold and is loved by everyone she meets. She has a way with kids and is the favorite aunt to our nieces, nephews, cousins, and friend’s children. She goes the extra mile to put a smile on everyone’s face and loves baking treats for the children in the neighborhood. She makes the best Rice Krispy Treats and Banana Pudding.
Shana is an accountant and she loves what she does. She enjoys reading, walking, biking, and traveling. Shana looks forward to singing lullabies, nursery rhymes, and reading bedtime stories with our child. She is also excited to bake them delicious treats, show them how to cook good meals, and be their number one supporter!
Our 4-bedroom home is where the love and fun is! We have a beautiful fenced-in backyard with a swimming pool with plenty of room to run, play, host family events such as birthday parties, family cookouts, and holiday gatherings. We make sure to take time to enjoy dinner as a family and share stories about our day. We also love to spend time with our loveable, super friendly Chihuahuas, Biscuit and Savannah. We are very excited to welcome your child to our home, we have already decided on their room!
Our home is located in a diverse gated community with an abundance of friendly neighbors, children, and pets. Our neighborhood has a playground, a golf course, swimming pools, tennis and basketball courts and so much more. We live in a great school district, close to the beach, aquatic center, aquarium, and a short drive from the zoo, Petting Zoo, museum, and so much more fun and exciting things.
Our families are built on a foundation of love, support, education and Christian Values. We enjoy the time spent with our families. Our children, CJ and Kahrin live in Ohio and South Carolina. CJ is a manager in sales and Kahrin works in retail. They are excited to welcome your child to the family and share with them their childhood joys.
Our families are truly overjoyed and supportive of our plans to adopt and they look forward to welcoming your child into the family and creating wonderful memories with them. Both of our parents are retired and live less than an hour away. We vacation with our families, spend holidays with them and they are included in our lives as much as possible. Family is important to us, and your child will be embraced by our two adult children, great-grand parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
We promise to provide a loving and compassionate home filled with Christian values and support for your child. We promise to teach them the importance of faith, family, and education. We will provide your child with unconditional love, the best education, and a life of endless possibilities.
