A Letter from Correy & LaKiesha
Dear Birth Mother,
We are from Indiana and we are grateful to be considered as the family for your child. We have been married for 8 years and, after struggling with infertility for many years, we believe that God has given us the means to grow our family through adoption. We are thrilled to now grow our family and welcome your child into our lives.
We are excited to share our unconditional love, emotional and financial support, and a stable and safe home with great support from family and friends. We look forward to trips to the zoo, museums, parks, and vacations. Thank you for giving us the opportunity and taking the time to get to know us.
Eleven years ago we were introduced to each other by Correy’s grandmother and it was love at first sight. Our relationship has always been centered on God. We enjoy spending time together either at home or on a date night outing. We also enjoy traveling and spending time with family just to name a few things.
We have always wanted children however, after multiple failed fertility treatments, we realized that God had another plan for us to grow our family. We are excited to become first-time parents and look forward to holidays, creating new family traditions, and enjoying the simple things together. We also look forward to supporting, loving and nurture your child in all that they do.
Correy is patient, focus driven, funny, loving, compassionate, and trusting. He is a great provider and would do anything for our family. He is actively involved in the men’s ministry at our church and, through adversity, I have seen his trust in God grow tenfolds. As a manager, he is full of wisdom and care for those that he works with. His employees love how he can lead the team to complete any goal.
Correy loves to cook and enjoys pulling up new recipes on the internet and giving them a try. He also loves to barbecue on our fire pit in the summer. In his downtime, he enjoys plays video games and watching his Dallas Cowboys. He is an amazing husband and I know that he is excited to have a little helper to cheer on his team with.
LaKiesha is caring, adventurous, motivated, witty, trustworthy, selfless and a loving woman. She’s a terrific homemaker and she often puts others feelings and needs before her own. LaKiesha has always kept her trust in God and is always there to give good advice to family and friends.
LaKiesha loves decorating and gardening, so much so that her friends often ask her to help them with their own home décor and gardens. She loves taking pictures so much that it is a running joke that at any family gathering she’s going to take a 100 pictures. I know she is excited to love our child and teach them how to garden as well as share her love of photography with them.
Our home is a welcoming and cozy 2 story house with 3 bedrooms; one of the bedrooms is already turned into a nursery with gender-neutral colors. We have a large backyard and lots of open space for playing games, hosting events, and many more activities. We live in a community area that has a great school system for our future child to attend. Our community has many walking trails, ponds, and a park with a swimming pool. Our neighborhood is great for raising children and is filled with loving neighbors who have children already.
Correy is an only child and LaKiesha is the youngest of 6 siblings. We both love spending time with family and friends. We all love coming together for Christmas brunch each year and typically get together for birthdays and special occasions whenever we can. Our family loves sharing stories and laughing together. Your child will be the first grandchild for both of our mothers- Who are thrilled to be grandmas! Our families are very close-knit and are all excited to welcome another member to the family!
We promise to love your child unconditionally and to provide them with a safe and loving home. We promise to teach them about Jesus Christ, his love, our love, and your own love for them. We promise to support their hopes and dreams, to teach responsibility and self-worth, and to provide them with a loving support system. We would love to keep an open adoption with you, if you would be comfortable, and are open to sharing letters, pictures, and visits.

|More About Our Family|
|Things We Like|
We love different adventures, such as local cruise excursions, bus tours, concerts/plays, visiting national state parks, and museums of all kinds. We have been lucky enough to have visited many different states and have the opportunity to go to each of the major landmarks. We enjoy nice and calm blue waters when we travel to different parts of the world, which is where we find most peaceful and relaxing. We are big fans of action, romantic comedy, and sci-fi movies, they seem to make us feel like we been there before.
We are a Christian couple who attends church on Sundays and some weekend nights for special events. Correy is actively involved in the Sons of Barnabas ministry at our church. He greets members and visitors at the door, acting security during service, and taking new members into what our church calls VIP which stands for Visitor Information and Prayer room after service. We both enjoy our church's annual events!!
We have two dogs that we love spending time with. Loki is an 8-year-old Bulldog Terrier mix and BJ is an 8-year-old Yorkipoo. BJ is laid back and loves to play catch till he is tuckered out. Loki is more playful and loves to run around, lead you on long runs and tucker you out. Both our dogs love belly rubs, cuddling, and being around us and kids.
