Loving Virgina family hoping to grow family through adoption

Hi, we are DAN and CYNDI!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read our profile. We are so excited to begin this process and grow our family through adoption.

Our Story

Our story as a couple began in 2009, when we were hanging out with some mutual friends and our paths crossed. Our relationship progressed quickly and we moved in with each other after a year of dating. Then in 2011, our beautiful daughter Payton came into our lives.

On Payton’s second birthday in 2013, when all of our family was gathered in one place, we had a surprise wedding! It was a fun day and everyone was so happy that we finally tied the knot. Now that we’ve been married a couple of years and Payton is in Kindergarten, we feel that it would be the best time to grow our family. Being an older couple, having a child biologically isn’t in the stars for us - so naturally, we are turning to adoption. We look forward to raising another child and finally becoming a family of four!

Our Home

We live in a nice, diverse neighborhood with lots of young families, in the suburbs of Washington, DC. It truly is the perfect place to raise a family, as we have lots of fun neighborhood events like our July Fourth parade, Halloween potluck and pig roast, and our HUGE Christmas party. The kids all love getting together, and so do the parents!

The reason we moved into this home, besides the great neighborhood, is because it's totally kid friendly. We have a big backyard with a deck, a swing set and a garden, where Cynthia likes to teach Peyton about plants. Inside we have a open concept living space that is truly the heart of our home - it connects our dining room, living room and kitchen. We love spending time here together, especially in the living room, which has turned into Peyton's playroom. We've made so many wonderful memories in our home and community, and cannot wait to make many more with another child!

We share our home with our dog, Mason, and our cat, Buffy. They both are sweet animals and great with children! Peyton loves helping take care of them, especially taking Mason for walks.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for taking the time to read our profile and learn more about our family!

With Love and Support
Dan, Cynthia and Peyton
