Meet Ryan & Crystal C.

Parents ready to adopt.

Dear Birthparent,

We are Ryan and Crystal. Thank you for taking the time to read our profile and consider us as your baby’s adoptive parents. We know that this is a very difficult decision, and we are truly honored by your courage. You demonstrate an incredible amount of bravery and love for your child in choosing adoption. As a family we are daily praying for you and your baby.

We met while volunteering at the fire department and attending church together. Over a period of two years, a sincere friendship grew, and in 2010 we married in Key Largo, Florida, surrounded by our family. There have been many ups and downs throughout our journey that have deepened our knowledge of one another and strengthened our relationship, and we feel blessed to be together. Our love for God has taught us how to love one another, and we hope to pass this love and acceptance on to our children.

As a family, some things we enjoy are cooking, playing at the park, taking swim lessons, watching movies, reading books, and singing together. We have a wonderful relationship with our extended family, and love to spend time together laughing, talking, eating, and playing outside with the kids.

We want to adopt.

Adoption was important to both of us even before we married. Micah joined our family in 2014 through Foster Care. We were living in Kentucky at that time and decided to open ourselves as a Foster home. We finalized his adoption two years later. He has been an amazing addition to our family, and we cannot imagine life without him! Watching our three kids growing together and showing what adoption into a family truly looks like has blessed us in so many ways. The girls understand that Micah is adopted, but love him as the true brother that he is.

About Crystal. Sports and exercise have always been important to Crystal. She played basketball when she was younger, and these days she loves to get out and run — it is a way to clear her head and maintain a positive outlook. She also loves going to the zoo with the kids. Our family has a membership at the Cincinnati Zoo and spends a lot of time there during the summer. Crystal works at a local children’s hospital where she finds value in helping children feel better when they are sick.

About Ryan. Ryan has traveled the world but now prefers to be home with his kids. He spent many years as a volunteer fireman and paramedic, which eventually developed into becoming a nurse. He works at a local hospital in Cardiology where he also enjoys helping people.

About the kids. Addy was born in 2013. She is full of life, has a sweet spirit, and has a wonderful sense of humor. She has a huge imagination and is also quick to share her toys with anyone who asks. Micah was born in 2014 and has been with us since birth. He is full of energy and loves to wrestle and chase. He loves both of his sisters, and is extremely protective of them. Josie was born in 2015. She has a sweet and loving personality and adores her older brother and sister. She is energetic and loves to run and climb.

Again, please accept our sincerest thanks for taking the time to get to know us a little better and especially for considering us as your baby’s adoptive parents. We would be honored to have this child become a part of our family.
