A Letter from David & Cheryl

Hello from Pennsylvania! We are excited to become 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 their goals with school, dreams, and talents. We would love to get to know you and your hopes for your child through this adoption. Thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child!

About Us

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 makes us strong as a couple. We’re excited about share our lives and getting into the things that our child is interested in, and sharing things we love too!

Together we enjoy:
• Traveling, especially outside of the US
• Going to the beach in the summer
• Taking walks around our neighborhood
• Cheering for our favorite sports teams
• Visiting friends and family.

About Cheryl

Cheryl is the most genuine and caring person I know. She is always keeping me smiling with her positive personality. Cheryl enjoys her work as director at a private Christian school, and her love for children shines through.

Cheryl likes shopping, taking pictures, cooking, and anything handmade or creative such as crafting, scrapbooking, or cross-stitching. I am so excited to see her become the mother she is meant to be.

About David

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!

David likes problem-solving (he was a math teacher for years!), gardening in our backyard, spending time outdoors, and jigsaw puzzles. His supportive and understanding nature will make him an amazing father!

Our Family

We both come from big, loving families! Cheryl is close to her mom and has a large extended family we enjoy seeing often. David is one of 5 children, and most of his family lives in California. It’s fun to 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 share a family meal after church. For the holidays we enjoy Christmas Eve service and celebrating with food and family. And we always look forward to our annual summer beach trips!

Our Home in Pennsylvania

Our home has 4 bedrooms, with a separate living room and family room that have plenty of space for a child to run and play (and lots of storage for toys!). Our big backyard has a beautiful lawn and flower garden.

We love living here! There are 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. It’s a great place to raise a family!

Our Promise

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 values others, be confident and kind, and to know that they are loved.

We promise to honor you as a special part of our family’s story. If you’d like, we would love to stay in contact with you through letters, photos, and visits, at your comfort level. To talk with us us, please call or text Lifetime at 1.800.923.6784.

Thinking of you,
David & Cheryl

Our Favorite Thing About Where We Live

Our home is the same house where Cheryl grew up! It has lots of room to play and explore, with great weather for snowmen in the winter, fall color and piles of leaves, and summers at the park.

Our Faith

We were raised Catholic and we enjoy serving those around us and our community. We will raise our child in a faith-filled household, surrounded by our supportive friends from church.

David loves to sing, his mother has always been his inspiration and taught him to love all genres of music. Cheryl likes a bit of everything, but her favorites are from the 80s and 90s.
