Corey and Cameron
Dear Birth Mother
Thank you for taking the time to read our story and getting to know us better. Words cannot describe the respect and appreciation we have for you as you make this unbelievably brave step. The most important thing in our life is to surround ourselves with a world of love and adventure. We would be honored to include your child as a part of our family.
AS PARENTS, we will focus on providing unconditional love, acceptance and encouragement. We are incredibly grateful that you would consider us to love and raise your child.
All the best,
Corey and Cameron
We met online and had our first date at Disneyland. Outside of those park gates it was truly love at first sight. Since then, we have followed each other to wherever our adventures take us. We eventually moved from California to Orlando, FL for Corey’s dream job with Delta. We love calling Orlando home!
Corey was born and raised in Spartanburg, South Carolina and Cameron in Portland, Oregon. We were raised in large, humble and hardworking families. We are happiest when we are surrounded by our family and friends.
Everyone in our family is extremely excited and supportive of our desire to be parents and are thrilled of the idea of a new addition. Each and every one of our extended family cannot wait to take part in this journey. After all, it takes a village, right?!
ALL OF OUR FRIENDS would describe us as a caring couple who love to explore the world, get out in nature, support the arts, and open our home with embracing arms. During the week, you’ll most likely find us exploring new places to eat, exercising around the neighborhood, or hanging out with Mickey Mouse.
In our time off, we tend to get out and explore the world. We love visiting new and far off places. Our traveling is best when we are surrounded by family and friends, but there are times when they cannot be with us. We look forward to creating our future adventures as our own family.
He lives his life open to adventure and embracing the world. Nothing is impossible in Corey’s eyes. He is a very genuine, easy to talk to person. As soon as he walks into the room, everyone feels like they’ve known him forever.
As a kid, he would drag his mom to the airports just to watch the planes take off. His love for planes led him to his dream job as a flight attendant. He thoroughly enjoys being in the sky with his beloved planes. With the benefits of his job, he also gets to explore the farthest reaches of the world. Corey has a great fascination to experience new things and is able to do so through travel. Corey is also a huge theme park nerd. He is enamored with roller coasters and uses his traveling benefits to visit the theme parks he loves.
When I think of Corey as a father I can see a big smile across his face as he watches our future child discover the world. I look forward to Corey placing our future child on his shoulders as we watch the Disney fireworks together. I know that he will be the father where “one more time” will end up being many more. His puns will definitely get either an uproar of laughter or a shared eye roll between me and our future child. I know that Corey will embody unconditional love with many laughs along the way.

He’s lived a pretty animated life! His life’s entirety has consisted of people telling him he looks and acts like a cartoon character (Linguine from Ratatouille). So it’s only fitting that he has become the illustrator behind those goofy characters!
Drawing, dancing, singing, acting, eating and movies are huge aspects of his life. Cameron is one of the most talented illustrators that I know. When we are traveling, I love to watch Cameron get his sketchbook out and start illustrating what is on his mind. Many of his sketches involve our family or some of their favorite characters.
I look forward to becoming a parent with Cameron. I foresee him getting up on Saturday mornings to watch Disney cartoons with our future child, and making time to help do homework on the weekdays. He gets so excited about the adventures and experiences we will all make together. Cameron will be a great dad because of his love, kindness, creativity, and fun quotes from movies he thinks are funny.

Our Family and Friends
Growing up in larger families has shown us that there is so much love to share. We have seen what it means to be a family and always put those we love first.
Creating memories and traditions as a whole family is extremely important to us. One of Corey’s favorite traditions growing up was in the fall time his parents and he would visit New York/ New Jersey. They would go to a roller coaster enthusiast club event at Six Flags, and then visit New York City. It was a great way to kick off fall and spend some quality time together doing something they loved.
Cameron grew up being very close to his family. They enjoyed movie and game nights served with pizza or Chinese food. Similarly, he has carried on that tradition into our house with movies and take out nights. One tradition from Cameron’s family that I also love, is each fall we make a dish called ET. It all started with his great grandmother when she went to make a “hamburger helper” style dish inside of a pumpkin. She went to draw a traditional jack-o-lantern face on the surface but it came out of the oven looking like ET. Those are the kind of memories he cherishes the most. It is also one of my favorite meals of the fall time!
Cameron’s twin, Chris, has a 10 month old son named Foster who cannot wait to spend time with his cousin. Corey’s brother, Jeffery, has three kids who want nothing more than one more campfire buddy with whom to make s’mores. Their names are Liam, Easton and Grayson. Liam is 5 years old and Easton and Grayson are 4 years old. We love spending time with them playing with trucks and imagining lost worlds to explore.
We also have a 6 year old Bichon Mix, Anna, who’s the sweetest and most loving dog in the world. Anna enjoys cuddling, playing fetch, begging for all of the french fries, and would love a partner in crime to keep her dads on their toes.
Located in the quaint neighborhood of Windermere Trails, our home is quite literally in the backyard of the Magic Kingdom of Walt Disney World. You can even see the fireworks from our back windows!
Windermere Trails is full of walking trails, a public elementary school, a public pool and families with children of all ages. We love living here because it is surrounded by nature, but it’s also walking distance to everything. There’s even a cute Italian Ice and Yogurt walk-up that we frequent called Jeremiah’s.
We want to THANK YOU for taking the time to read our story. We know that this is not an easy decision for you and we are extremely grateful for the opportunity to be considered parents for your child. We want our future child to know that they have always been loved and that your decision was an act of love. In return, we promise to be there for every event of your child’s life, big or small. We promise to love this child unconditionally. We promise to be there for every thunderstorm, bedtime story, and imaginary friend. We would love the opportunity to explore further with you the journey of becoming loving fathers.
