Shevin + Corey
Dear friend, hi there! Thank you for taking a moment to look through our profile and learn a bit about us. First, we want you to know that we have been praying for you. We pray that you will have clarity as you consider all your options, confidence in making your final decision, and peace as you look back on it. You probably have a picture in your mind of the kind of family you want for your baby. If that picture looks anything like us, we would love to welcome you and your little one into our lives.
We met at church about 10 years ago and got married in 2015. We welcomed Jake in 2017, and he has richly blessed our lives. Faith and family are very important to us. Our extended families live close by, and we visit them often. We are also very active in our church. We live in a suburban neighborhood within walking distance of a great elementary school. On nice days, we like to walk to one of the parks nearby or the community swimming pool. We travel in the summer and attend college football games in the fall. We are looking forward to many family vacations.
Shevin grew up in the country with three siblings. She spent her high school years studying and performing in plays and musicals. She taught elementary school for 14 years before resigning to stay at home with Jake, and she is thankful for this opportunity every day. Her favorite part of the day is right after Jake gets up, they sit together on the couch and watch Curious George while Jake eats a banana. She and Jake also enjoy having "dance parties" in the kitchen. Jake turns some music on, and they both turn in circles and bounce to the rhythm. Shevin loves being a wife and mother, and she wouldn't trade it for the world.
Corey grew up in East Texas with three older sisters. He played soccer and ran cross-country in high school, and he has run several marathons since. He is also a dog-lover, and fostered Golden Retrievers for five years. He works as an accountant for a renewable energy company, but his favorite job titles are husband and father. He gets home from work as soon as he can, so he can spend his evening hanging out with the family. Jake loves to stack blocks, do puzzles, and throw the ball with his daddy. Corey and Jake enjoy also their bedtime routine. Corey gives Jake a bath, puts on his pajamas, reads him a book, and prays with him before putting him to bed.
Jake is our sweet, happy, funny toddler. He's always smiling and laughing and coming up with new ways to entertain everyone. His newest thing is to dance in circles around the living room. He loves to go on walks, watch Curious George, and play with his toys. He also enjoys playdates with his cousins who live nearby.
We have a very lazy Boxer mix named Beau. He has been part of our lives for over 10 years and we love him dearly. Beau is gentle and patient with Jake, and we find him to be the perfect family dog.
We promise we will empower your child to chase after their hopes and dreams. We will celebrate their victories and comfort them through the hurts in life. We will kiss every "booboo" have lots of "dance parties" in the kitchen! We will make sure that your child knows how much you love them. And lastly, but certainly not least, we promise to teach your child about God and the great love He has for them! We hope you feel encouraged during this difficult time. Please know you have people who love you dearly and are praying for you as you navigate these hard decisions!
