“…whoever welcomes a child like this…. welcomes Me.”
A Letter from Austin & Cheyenne
We are Cheyenne & Austin (or Chey-lo and Usti as we are more commonly known around our house).
We live in beautiful Florida with our two dogs and are SO excited to add to our family through adoption. We are a very dynamic family with many interests that we are excited to share with you and your baby. Our amazing lives are centered around God and we look forward to sharing our faith with your child. We look forward to keeping in touch through emails, texts, pictures, videos, FaceTime, and visits! We want you to show the amazing life that, together, we have all given your child.
Thank you so much for taking a moment to get to know us. We would love to speak with you and answer any questions you may have!
We met, by chance, when Austin was a US Navy Sailor home for the weekend and Cheyenne was an undergraduate college student far from home. We met, fell in love, and four years later are happily married and starting the journey to extend our family! Together we love to golf, cook, spend time with our friends and family, travel, and watch the Buffalo Bills. We are so excited to be first-time parents and look forward to sharing our annual family trips, passion for the holidays, and Sundays (for Church and football) with our child.
Austin is a goofy, fun, caring, smart, responsible, and an amazing husband. He works so hard to make our life everything that we could ever want it to be and is a major support system for his friends and family. He is protective, understanding, and my best friend. Austin loves sports! He is (in my opinion) Florida’s most die-hard Buffalo Bills fan and he is thrilled to one day coach one of our child’s sports teams. He loves to golf, bowl, play softball and enjoy good food. He has an obsession with super spicy chicken wings and loves seeking out and trying new flavors. Austin values family over everything and will be the most amazing father!
Cheyenne is fun, charismatic, and responsible. She values family over everything and will do everything in her power to help those around her. She loves to cook, host large family meals and is incredibly creative. She loves creating things- her most recent project was painting corn hole boards for my parents. She and my dad bond over DIY projects. She loves reading, music, she has adopted my love for the Buffalo Bills. Cheyenne has shown me for years how loyal and amazing she is. She stood by me throughout my military career and is my biggest cheerleader as I figure out post-military life. I know she will make the perfect mother.
Our home is awesome! We have been truly blessed to have such an amazing home for the last 2 years. We live in a super family-friendly town. There are multiple nature trails, playgrounds, parks, and amazing schools in our area. Our home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a fenced-in yard that is perfect for our two dogs, Gark and Drake. We also have a not so successful vegetable garden and plenty of space for playing outside! We are very close to our neighbors and live five houses down from Cheyenne’s parents.
We each came from two very different home lives which makes for one pretty cool family! We go on vacations with Austin’s parents and brother whenever we have the chance and are in a bowling and golf league with them. We spend most of our afternoons with Cheyenne’s parents and can find fun in doing almost anything with them. Our families are beyond excited for us and are thrilled to welcome our child into the family! They are especially looking forward to celebrating Christmas and Boxing Day with our child, making them a part of our family trips, and teaching them all about being a Buffalo Bills fan. Our parents are so excited to become grandparents!
Our promise is to love your baby fiercely and give them the best life we can. We promise to give them every opportunity to learn about Christ and anything else he or she could possibly want. We will do everything to keep your baby safe, healthy, happy. We promise to surround them with grandparents and aunts and uncles who love him or her deeply. We promise to have Christmases, birthdays, other holidays, and family vacations full of fun, family, and laughter that your child will never forget. We promise to be there for every scratch, stomach bug, fight with a friend, and broken heart that your child may face as the rock, shoulder to cry on, and cleanup crew that he or she needs.
We promise to love and cherish you as a part of our family and look forward to keeping in touch with you at your comfort level.

|More About Our Family
|Our Very Different Interests
We have a lot of very diverse interests.
Cheyenne loves music, going to concerts, and is always listening to something. She loves reading, crafting, cooking, and trying her hand at gardening.
Austin loves sports. He goes to every sporting event he can and travels to Buffalo, NY every year to see at least one Bills game. He golf at least two times a week and is part of a softball league with his childhood best friends. In his spare time, Austin has started to detail cars with his dad as their new hobby.
Together we love to golf, try new restaurants, and travel. Whether it's a three hour trip to St. Augustine or our annual trip to Colorado, our vacations are our favorite times of the year.
We are very proud to say that, in 2019, we grew in our faith.
|Our Love For Music
Like we mentioned before Cheyenne is obsessed with all different types of music. She can go from listening to Luke Bryan to Elvis to Chance the Rapper. You literally never know what "music mood" you are going to get with her.
Austin goes through phases. He loves country for a few months, then only listens to talk radio, then he hangs out with his family and is all about classic rock, and then it's back to talk radio.
|About Our Home
Our home has really become exactly what we wanted it to be. It took a lot of time and hard work, but we have been able to work together to create a homey, rustic vibe in our home. Our neighborhood is the reason why we moved into this house. It is family-friendly, in a great area, has amazing schools and parks, but the best thing about it is our neighbors. They are amazing people who will do anything for anyone and are always there to support each other.
|We Prefer a Child Who Is...

We look forward to being amazing parents and getting to share our lives with you and your child.
