FC: Every good and perfect gift is from above. James 1:17 | Cory and Stacie
1: We are honored that you are taking the time to view our profile. We hope that through our pictures and words you can get a glimpse of the life of love, happiness, and stability that we can give your child. We admire your courage as you go through this journey and hope that something about us touches your heart.
2: Our journey | We both have a great love for children and are excited to start a family. Due to fertility issues we have been unable to conceive but know in our hearts that we are meant to be parents. Although there were other methods that we could have tried, prayer and the feeling we have in our hearts guided us to adoption. We are so excited for what life has in store for us and the family that we will build through this process. | Our Faith | Religion has been a part of our lives since we were children. We were both raised to give thanks and praise to the Lord on a regular basis. As adults, we have continued to make worship an important part of our lives. We look forward to raising a family with the same Christian values we were raised with.
3: About us | We were married in 2008 and have settled in the community that we both grew up in. We have a relationship full of love and respect and we are each others best friend, We have a Maltese Poodle named Riley who can't wait to be a big brother! We enjoy taking Riley for walks, attending local sporting events, and spending time with family and friends.
4: There are so many things that I love about Cory: his commitment to his career and family, his kindness and willingness to help others, and his sense of humor are just a few. Cory is a high school math teacher and coaches football, basketball, and golf. He is well-known and respected throughout our community and is a great leader and role model for the kids that he teaches and coaches. Cory works with the young people in our community through the youth basketball and football programs and they love meeting up with him in the summer for daily challenges on the golf course. During his free time he enjoys playing golf, working out and watching the Twins, Vikings and Gophers. Cory is a great husband and friend and will be a great father. | About Cory by Stacie

Stacie recently opened a home daycare. She is so committed to providing the daycare kids with a loving and educational experience while in our home. Stacie enjoys spending time with family and friends. Summer weekends at the lake and family outings to baseball games are a couple of her favorites. She is an avid runner and enjoys going for summer evening walks. Stacie also loves to bake and is always reading a good book. I am extremely blessed to have Stacie as my best friend and wife! | About Stacie by Cory
