A Letter from David & Cheryl
We are a fun, stable, and caring couple from Pennsylvania who have so much love to give to your child through adoption. Your child will be a cherished member of our family, and we are so excited to share our lives.
We will provide a wonderful life full of opportunities for him or her to become who they were meant to be! We would love to hear from you and your hopes for your child through this adoption.
When we met in college, we became best friends, which grew into our loving marriage. After experiencing infertility for years, we decided that adoption is the path God led us to.
Spending time together is a priority and makes us such a strong couple. We would love to share our adventures with your child of traveling abroad, visiting the beach in the summer, going on walks around our neighborhood, rooting on our favorite sports teams, attending church every Sunday, and being around our friends and family.
Cheryl is the most genuine and caring person I know and has the never-ending ability to give herself to the people around her. She is always keeping me smiling with her positive personality. She has a passion for her career in religious education but is looking forward to becoming a stay at home mother for a couple of months after we adopt.
Cheryl loves shopping, photographing our lives, cooking tasty meals, and anything hands on like crafting, scrapbooking, or cross-stitching. I am so excited to see her become the mother she is meant to be.
David is a caring husband. In his career as a middle school principal, he takes the time to get to know his students and provides them with any help they need. Education is so important to us, and David will make sure our child receives an excellent education as he or she grows up. He is my biggest encourager to follow my dreams, and I know he will encourage our child to do the same!
You can find David putting together puzzles, problem-solving (he was a math teacher for 19 years!), gardening in our backyard, and spending time in nature. His supportive and understanding nature will make him excel as a father!
Cheryl is very close to her mother and has a large extended family that we visit often. David is one of 5 children, and most of his family lives in California. We are able to spend holidays and celebrate with them throughout the year.
We are excited to share our family traditions of attending church on Sundays and having a family meal afterward, attending church on Christmas Eve, celebrating with food, decorating for all the holidays, and taking annual trips to the beach. Our family is so supportive of our adoption journey and they look forward to welcoming your child into our family celebrations!
We are rooted in our Catholic faith and it has been instilled in us since we were born. We both teach religious education and are so blessed to serve those around us and our community. Your child will be raised in a faith-filled household and will be surrounded by our supportive church family.
Our home has 4 bedrooms, one of those being turned into a nursery for our child. We have a nice sized living room and family room with plenty of space for a child to run around and play (also lots of storage for toys)! Our backyard is spacious with a beautiful green lawn, and David loves planting flowers in the springtime.
We love living where we do because we are surrounded by friendly neighbors with children who you can usually find playing outside when the weather is nice. We are only a 10-minute drive from a big 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 will talk about you and how much you love them. We want to stay in contact with you through letters, photos, and visits if you are comfortable! To learn more about us, please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.
