Introduction: We would like to thank you for taking the time to look at our profile and considering us as a forever family for your child. We are excited to expand our family through adoption again. We have been blessed with 2 sons through adoption.
About our family: We know that we cannot understand everything you are going through, but we greatly admire your strength and courage for making an adoption plan. We met in 2002 through mutual friends and were married in 2003, our son Titus came to us in 2009, and our son Calvin in 2015.
Titus is a compassionate and sweet kid who cares deeply for others. He is looking forward to being a big brother again and can’t wait for a sibling to share life with. He loves Legos, swimming, basketball, reading, playing piano, 4-H, and weekends with grandparents.
Calvin was the sweetest baby, he had the biggest smile that would always brighten a room. He was born with a severe heart defect that required 3 surgeries. Calvin passed away at 10 months due to complications from his 2nd surgery. He is dearly missed by all who knew him.
We love to travel, we have been to many places in the US and Bahamas. Our favorite vacations are Disney Cruise vacations, we enjoy the time to just be a family with out any interruptions. We still have so many places we want to visit in the future.
We are very involved in our church, we have worked with our church’s youth group for 11 years. We love spending time with the teens and watching them grow in to young adults. We raise our kids with Christian morals and values.
About Justin: Justin works as an EMS coordinator at local hospital, but his favorite job is being a dad. He is an avid Ohio State football fan and has instilled the love of the Buckeyes in Titus, who gets excited when they watch the games together.
About Lori: Lori is a stay-at-home wife & mom, her hobbies include reading, playing piano, and spending time with family. Lori enjoys being able to be apart of Titus’ schooling. Lori has a degree in education, but feels it important to be at home while the children are still young.
About our Home/Pets: We live in a 2 story, 4 bedroom home in a small rural town. We have a large backyard with a swing set for hours of play. We have a basketball hoop for Titus to practice on. Our front porch is our favorite spot to sit in the evening, whether reading books or just chatting about our day. We have a small terrier dog who lays at our feet & just enjoys being with us.
Traditions: Black Friday shopping, cutting down our live Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving; weekly meals with Lori’s family; spending holidays with family, spending time at our county fair, Christmas Eve service at our church, special meals for birthdays and more.
Thank you again for taking time to look at us. We know this decision isn’t an easy one and we want you to know that if chosen as your child’s forever family we promise to love them unconditionally, provide for them, and give them everything they need to be all they want to be. We would love to meet you and get to know you.
