We are Cynthia, Godwin, Israel and Grace, and we are so excited to share this experience with you. As a couple we have been dreaming and planning or this moment since we were 18. God put a passion for adoption in our hearts when we were very young. We would consider it a true honor if you gave us the privilege of being parents to your child. We know that you are facing a very tough decision and we admire the courage it takes to make an adoption plan for your baby. We hope you can find comfort and peace during this time and feel assured that in choosing us to raise your baby, you have chosen a family who will provide lifelong support, love and stability. As you read a little bit about us and look at our pictures, we hope that you will feel our love for each other and our family, and the dedication and love we will share with your child. Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
About Our Family
We, Cynthia and Godwin, met twenty years ago in our freshman year of college. Since the first moment we realized we were meant for each other. We share a passion for God, family, adoption, the outdoors, traveling, sports, cooking. We got married 5yrs later and we are about to celebrate 16 yrs of marriage in a month. We have two daughters – Izzy and Grace. We are Christians and our lives are centered around God. Our faith leads our actions, decisions and guides us in planning for the future. In all we do we try to honor and bring glory to God. Family is our priority. We love spending time with each other going for walks, to the park, cuddling at home, hanging with friends, watching movies, and trying new recipes. Our relationship as a couple continues to grow stronger with each passing year. While we have experiences our share of both good and rough times, we have been partners in this journey, taking on challenges head on, and keeping at it through faith. Our commitment to build a family bound by love has brought us here to you.
About Godwin (from Cynthia): Godwin is a fun-loving, sweet natured and caring husband and father. The very first time I met him, I was attracted to his respectful, gentle and kind nature. He is the type pf person who puts others first. He is always so encouraging and supportive and brings out the best in everyone. Godwin grew up an only child and continues to be very close to his parents who are now very active and involved grandparents to our girls. The past 8yrs, I have seen the Daddy side of him and I must say that Izzy and Grace are so blessed to have a father like Godwin. He is a great role model. He is so unconditional in his love. His patience, wisdom and gentleness make him a perfect daddy.
About Cynthia (from Godwin): Cynthia is the love of my life, my best friend, an amazing mother and full of compassion for everyone she meets. She has a heart that cares about people who are hurting at a much deeper level than most of us are moved to be and it was this along with many other traits that attracted me to her 20 yrs ago. She has accomplished (educationwise and personally), so much in such a short time, yet is the most humble and grounded person I have met. She is truly an inspiration to me. From when we were young we have been excited about starting a family and having several kids to love on. Over the past few years, I have been blown away to see the amazing change that has taken place as she has added mother to all the other roles she has been juggling for a while. Her love and support for Izzy and Grace leave me assured that our children are getting the best nurturing, and security one could ask for. She is the glue that holds us all together.
Izzy (9) Izzy is such a joy to us. She has a tenderhearted, free-spirited child who is full of love and compassion for friends, family and almost everyone she comes in contact with. As we share our passion and prepare for a new child, Izzy is over the top excited about having a new sister or brother. She has been spending her time designing toys and blankets for the baby. She is the fourth grade and loves the theater and playing the piano and reading the Nancy Drew series.
Grace (6) Grace is the laughter in our home. She is an independent, funny, strong, young lady who has quite the imagination. She loves and adores her big sister. She loves painting, playing house, and baking with her mommy. She is super excited to help change the baby’s diapers 😊, help feed the baby and help her big sister make toys. Grace is in first grade and her favorite class is piano this year. We adopted Grace at birth and to date that is her favorite bedtime story – how mom, dad and Izzy walked into a hospital room and fell in love with a little bundle of cuteness. Grace loves to dress up and play house with her dolls. She has a lot to say and loves her Sunday morning dates with Dadda.
We love spending time with each other going for walks, to the park, cuddling at home, hanging with friends, watching movies, and trying new recipes.

Family is our priority.
We both come from close knit families and keeping those ties are very important to us. Though we are not near to them geographically, we make it a point to travel and see our families multiple times a year. We believe in continuing to share in each other’s’ lives even as adults. Our desire for our children is hat they get to share as much time as possible with their cousin, grandparents and other family members and we do everything possible to enable that. We have a huge community of friends that we do everyday life with.
Godwin has been working in the corporate world for the past 16 yrs. He is in management and is a very hardworking man. As committed as he is to his work and doing it well, he is very good at keeping his work life balance. Cynthia worked many years as a social worker before deciding to stay home with the children.
We so look forward to hearing from you and hope that this letter has helped you in making a decision. Most importantly, we pray that you find perfect parents for your baby, in us or in others.
With love, Cynthia, Godwin, Izzy and Grace
