Meet Calvin & Janell

You can rest assured that God is in control and will carry your burdens.

As his servant, I feel that I am blessed to be in the position to grow my family and welcome your child. Know that if you select me to provide for your child and to be loved as their father, I will do all that is in my power to protect and provide for them in any situation.

I have a child that has turned 18 and ready to start college and adulthood. She is a God-fearing child that has been raised to praise God for all that she has and knows that she is fully supported by her family. I would love for your child to be able to tell the same story. 

I understand your sacrifice and your bravery and welcome your decision to add your child to my family.  Sincerely, Calvin

 

We prayed before deciding to start this process and believe that God has created this path for us. He has been with us every step of the way guiding us through. 

We would like you to be a part of your child’s life however you feel is best for you and your child. We would like to get to know you so we can ensure your child has all the information and communication they need to thrive.

Whether it be visitation, email, letters, call/text, whatever you think is the best way to get to know each other and communicate we will respect that. Know that your child will be in a clean, safe, loving space with us and that we stress the importance of family always.  Sincerely, Calvin and Janell

The Story of Us

We first met as students at The Ohio State University. We were both members of the university’s gospel choir where she would dance, and I sung. I liked the way she served the Lord and took time away from all distractions to show Him that He is worthy. I knew I would need a strong, fearless, faith-based woman in my life.  I was initially attracted to her big brown eyes and how she was pretty without makeup. She was reserved and kept a low profile. I am the loud one, so I guess it made us a match. 

 

I knew he was the one because he is the only person that can put me in a good mood no matter what. No matter what I am going through or how bad my day is he can always make me feel better. I love that he loves me no matter what and always puts family first. He is tall and handsome and has a beautiful smile. We fight over who has the best teeth. He is honest, faithful, and consistent. He has a giving spirit and always looks out for others. We dated for about 4 years before we got married. 

 

We are a safe space for each other. We share our goals with each other and build out plans to achieve new activities. Our dreams for the future are to grow our family, to continue to travel with our growing family, buy a new home for our growing family, and just enjoy God’s Blessings.

Meet Calvin

I love that my husband is honest, he is hilarious, faithful, intelligent, likes to have fun, loves his family, he’s a great cook, keeps his promises, supportive, and he loves me no matter what.

Calvin is a just a joy to be around, if you are around him for more than 2 mins you will find yourself laughing about something.

He knows everyone and everyone knows him. Whenever we are out people are stopping to speak to him, and when I am out alone, I always hear “hey Calvin’s wife”. He is always available to give great advice whether it be to me, his family, or his friends. He is wise beyond his years.

Meet Our Family

Calvin has an 18-year-old daughter from a previous relationship. She is a beautiful, intelligent young lady who will be headed to college this fall.

We love all the children in our family and treat them all as if they were our own. We make sure they are safe, loved and support them in all their extracurricular activities. 

Our faith means everything to us. We would be nothing without God and everything we have is because of Him.

We enjoy going to church every Sunday, we love to travel as much as possible, we like watching our favorite shows together i.e., any Marvel series, Young Rock, Billions, Succession, Blackish, we like going to the movie theater and watching the horses race at Scioto Downs, we also enjoy going out to dinner and trying new restaurants. Holidays and special occasions are typically spent at our house unless we go out of town to visit family.

What Adoption Means To Us

We both have multiple adopted relatives in our family. To us, they are just our cousins without any blurred lines or need for additional clarifications.

We were taught at a young age to make sure that everyone feels loved and cared for no matter how they came to become a part of our family. We plan to do the same with our child.

The pastor of our church has shared with us that they are also looking to adopt this year and we have assisted each other is process through prayer and preparation.

We feel that anyone who is considering adoption for their child to provide a safe and loving home is brave. It takes courage to go through this process and our hearts and prayers are forever with you. Please know that your child will never go a day without knowing how much they are loved by God, us, and you. Their safety and wellbeing are our priority, and we are honored to even be considered.

We plan to talk about adoption as early as possible. We think it is very important for everyone to know their family history and where they come from. We plan to tell them all the information we know about their biological parents early on. 

We would like you to be a part of your child’s life however you feel is best for you and your child. We would like to get to know you so we can ensure your child has all the information and communication they need to thrive.

Know that your child will be in a clean, safe, loving space with us and that we stress the importance of family always.
