A Letter from Noel & Sydney
We’re honored and truly excited to begin this journey with you. We’re so very thankful that God has led us to adoption and we thank you for considering us as adoptive parents for your child. We’re a God and family first kind of couple, and we intend to raise our child the same way. We have so much family near us and they are all thrilled for our adoption. We are open to adopting any race and gender. We look forward to getting to know you and begin this exciting journey with you.
We met several years ago at church and knew from the start that God meant for us to be together. We got to know each other over a mission trip in Savannah, Georgia where we worked all week fixing up houses in low-income communities. We got engaged after two years of being together and got married in a beautiful ceremony a year and a half later in the same church that Sydney’s parents and brother got married in.
We both enjoy playing in our company softball league together. We enjoy going out with our families and going to sports events and doing activities, such as Top Golf. We’re excited to share our home, love, and passions with your child.
Sydney has a heart for people- be it friend, family or stranger. She’s always willing to step in anywhere to volunteer and be a true servant for God. She has a sense of humor that’ll get anyone out of their seat.
Sydney loves to read. Just about any free time she has, she’s got her nose in a book. She loves theater and has acted, performed, and stage-managed in many shows and musicals at her college. She loves family! We have weekly dinners with her parents and siblings, and you can also find us all at her parent’s house or my parent’s house just hanging out and having a good time. I know that Sydney is excited to share her love of reading with your child and that her loving heart will make her a wonderful mother.
Noel is my best friend and the best partner I could’ve ever prayed for in life. He is kind and supportive in every aspect. He is very involved in our church’s children and youth ministry. His love for God helps him stay the encouraging, caring man I fell in love with. Noel’s best quality is his amazing sense of humor. He already spends time playing games with our nieces and nephews. Coming from such a big family, he has so many fun games to play and good times to share with our children.
I’m looking forward to seeing him grow into this new role as a dad. I know he is excited to share his jokes and love of sports with your child.
We live in a single-family home with an open yard and pool in the back. We love that we live within 15 minutes of our families and church family, so we’re always right around the corner from friends and family. We also enjoy hosting parties at our home, whether it’s a pool party, game night or a backyard BBQ event. Our home is the same home Sydney grew up in as a child, which we consider a blessing because of all the memories made there. We are excited to share those memories and make new ones with your child.
We are truly blessed to both come from such close-knit families. Sydney has one brother and over 30 cousins, which can only mean one thing: family gatherings are big and FUN! Noel has three brothers and one younger sister. We have many nieces and nephews and our family is still growing. We are always excited for any chance to get together as a family and play board games.
Both of our families are over-the-moon excited about our decision to adopt. Sydney’s family has been saying how excited they are to include them in our yearly family vacations.
We promise that your child will always be loved! We promise to share our Christian beliefs with your child and teach them the love that God has for them. We promise to support, cheer for and provide for your child as they grow up to be the person they were meant to be. They will always know that they are loved by us, God and you.

|More About Our Family|
|Our Special Interests|
Church is a giant part of our lives! We love going to camps and retreats and just pouring into the lives of the youth we work with.
We are faithful Christians who believe that God is the central part of our lives. Both of us grew up in Baptist churches and have been raised to seek God in every decision of our lives. That is the same ideology that we plan to raise our children in. We are strong in our faith and hope to instill those same values into our children.
|Our Musical Interest|
This is a subject where we are vastly different: Noel is into Pop music, while Sydney enjoys some good ol' Classic Rock. Our music tastes have definitely been shaped by how we were raised. Noel was raised on artists like Jennifer Lopez and New Kids on the Block, while Sydney, on the other hand, was raised on Pink Floyd and REO Speedwagon. Obviously, it's a fight to see who picks the radio station in the car.
|Sunshine State of Mind!|
We live in the great Southern state of Florida! We are fortunate enough to live within 30 minutes of Disney World, Universal Studios, Seaworld, and probably 5 different beaches! Sydney grew up in Florida and Noel has called Florida his home since 2010. Being so close to family, theme parks, and fun, we know we will never have to go too far for some fun in the sun!
