We are Steve and Cherilee, and our wish for you is peace in the coming days and lots of courage and God’s nearness as you face the big decisions ahead for you and your baby. It is with much excitement that we look forward to bringing another child into our home to love forever. We hope you will take the time to read about us and our lives.
We met over 12 years ago when Cherilee moved to Steve’s community to teach in our small church school. We were friends for a while, but soon realized we both really enjoyed being around each other. We feel like the Lord led us to each other and we were married on a beautiful day in March of 2001, making a lifelong commitment to God and to one another. We have had many happy times together along with a few sad ones. We had to bid farewell to our first baby and let God have him back for one of His angels. Since that time, we have been blessed with two beautiful children, Jarin and Shayna, who look forward to having a little sibling to love.
Steve is an adopted child and he feels so fortunate to have the life he does. He has always had it in his heart to someday offer a child the same wonderful experience he has had. We are so thankful the Lord has led you to us and pray that you will find us a blessing in your life.
Our home is located in a small, rural community that is quiet and peaceful. Everyone is very friendly and waves when we pass them on the road. We love the country life, and enjoy looking at the stars after dark, and listening to owls and other nocturnal animals. Crime is almost nonexistent here. We know your child would be safe and secure. Our home has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Upstairs we have a large family room that is bright and sunny, and filled with children’s toys, a desk, and a sewing/craft area. Our backyard is children friendly with a trampoline and a sandbox where our children spend countless hours making tunnels and roads. We look forward to seeing your child playing there too.
Steve is involved in the agriculture world. This includes growing corn and soybeans, trucking, and crop protection services. We all love the farming lifestyle because the entire family can be involved in it. Steve is a good dad, often taking the children along to the field. In his free time, Steve enjoys hunting, fishing, and riding his 4-wheeler, and back at home, he loves to read a good book.
Cherilee is a stay-at-home mom, taking pleasure in her vegetable and flower gardens, paper crafting, sewing and quilting. Our children love to help with the vegetable and flower gardens. We all enjoy the homegrown potatoes, fresh cucumbers, and salsa from the tomatoes we grow in our garden.
We love our way of life and hope that you will want this same type of wholesome and peaceful lifestyle for your child. Thank you for taking time to read about us.
Our hearts go out to you with love,
Steve and Cherilee
