Thank you for considering and viewing our profile. We are grateful that you are giving us the opportunity to share our love, life and blessings We are Scott and Cynthia and hope that as you read our profile you will see our hearts of love. We have a blessed life and want to share it with a child that has been chosen for us. We believe that adoption is an extraordinary way for us to share what we have received unselfishly and a new baby will bring us as much joy that we hope to give.
We have known each other since the 4th grade and were High School sweethearts. This year, we will celebrate 24 wonderful years of marriage on August 3rd . We were raised in the Midwest in a city called Muncie, Indiana. Through Scott’s corporate career, it has afforded us the opportunity to live in several places such as: Columbus, OH, Canton, MI, Stone Mountain, GA, and now we have settled in Albany, GA. We have even lived abroad in Huntingdon, England UK which was a great experience. In our early years of marriage, we experienced 3 miscarriages before successfully birthing 2 boys of our own. Although those were challenging times, we learned how to handle disappointments; to continue to hope and it made us stronger. Most of our sons early years, Cynthia was a stay at home Mom and enjoyed being able to see them grow and have that daily time with them. Cynthia’s working career has been in financial and customer services. Our sons are Scott II and Justin. Scott is in college and Justin is in High School. Scott works as a full-time drummer at our church and works with our Youth and Young Adult ministry. Justin is a student-athlete and works with our Media Ministry. They are great kids and we are very proud of them. We talk to them often about their soon-to-be adopted sister and they are very excited and involved with the preparation for her. They will be great big brothers. We also have a 3yr old, small dog named Sassy. She is loved and spoiled and her favorite place is on your lap. In 2003, we both made a decision to change careers and now work in a non-profit organization where we minister to the spiritual needs of others. We come from families that have strong Christian values and we continue to teach our children these values.
We live in a culturally diverse, family oriented neighborhood. Our home is 5400 sq. ft. all brick, 6BR 4BA w/a Media/Game room and a sun porch that lets you enjoy the sunny or rainy days. We have plenty of outdoor entertainment space with a BBQ and fire pit, palm trees surrounding our pool and lots of yard space to play and have fun in. Everyone has their own spacious bedroom and we have a nursery waiting for our precious new arrival. The public schools within our neighbourhood are the best in our city. Our city has several museums, parks and recreational facilities. We are surrounded by small towns that have festivals year-round.
Our Extended Family
We spend most of our leisure time together as a family. We have family night once a week where we’ll watch a movie, go to dinner, bowling or sometimes shopping. We have a lot of fun together and our boys still think we’re cool enough to hang out with. We both have large extended families which all primarily live in the Midwest and Arizona. We stay connected through telephone calls, visits and “face-time”. We travel home at least once a year. One of our relatives, Cynthia’s sister, lives in our city and we spend a lot of time together.
Our Family Traditions
It is our family’s tradition to eat Sunday dinner at home together. We also plan a family vacation at least once during the year. This is our time to shut down together and enjoy time away from the demands of everyday life.
What Led Us To Adoption
Our decision to adopt comes from several years of desiring to add to our family; through many discussions we both knew that the time was right for us to move forward. We have been abundantly blessed in many, many ways and adoption allows us to share what we have received with a child who may not have the same opportunities in life. We are excited and grateful for the opportunity to unselfishly share our love and lives with a child that has been chosen for us.
