Meet Ciera & Daniel F.

Adoptive family
Snapped a quick picture at our friend’s wedding, before heading out to the dance floor!

Hey Birth Parents!

We are Ciera and Daniel. We are so grateful that you’re taking the time to get to know us. We admire your strength, selflessness, and bravery in this journey. Our hope is that we will get to form a relationship composed of trust, respect, and understanding with you. We have been blessed with so much, and we want nothing more than to share those blessings with a child.

About Ciera (by Daniel) Ciera is an absolute joy of a person and a near-instant best friend to everyone she meets. Her inviting personality makes her the life of any conversation. Her favorite place in the house is curled up in our living room with a fuzzy blanket, cup of tea, and candle. She is always ready for us as a couple to try new and exciting things. She works daily as a School Counselor to make the lives of her students better. She’s dreamed of being a mother her whole life and is one hundred percent up to the challenge.

Loving family
We live for our evening snuggles with our puppy, Winston.

About Daniel (by Ciera) Daniel is my very best friend and biggest supporter. He provides grounded insightful perspectives, unwavering loyalty & love, and an endless supply of jokes. I fell in love with him when I got to know his genuine spirit, straight shooter personality, unflinching sense of humor, and unwavering affection. His dedication to ingenuity and efficient processes make Daniel a revered and treasured member of his professional communities. However, it is his warmth, kindness, loving spirit, along with his intellect that I treasure. I knew the first moment I met him he would be an amazing father.

Adoptive parents for your child
We have many annual traditions we like to do together, like visiting Fall festivals and pumpkin farms.

Our Home Our home is a calm, warm, and welcoming place. We love hosting get-togethers with our friends and family, including birthdays, our annual Friendsgiving party, and New Year’s Eve. When it’s just us, we relax on the couch with our cat, Luna, and our puppy, Winston.

We live in a charming neighborhood in a suburb outside of Toledo, Ohio. Our street is filled with mature trees and many children playing. You can always count on a friendly wave and conversation with the neighbors. We’re a short bike ride away from everything from parks and movie theatres to grocery stores and restaurants. We especially enjoy taking trips to the weekly farmers market in the downtown area.

A good family for your child
Easy like Sunday morning! Nothing like strolling through the park with Ciera’s side of the family.

We have so much love to share with a child.
Hanging out with Daniel’s side of the family feels like taking a deep breath after a long day.

Our Values We value strong education, kindness, compassion, self-respect, awareness, creativity, independent thinking, ambition, family, legacy, and a good sense of humor.

Our Promise to You Our love and commitment to your child will be unconditional and unwavering from the moment he or she enters our arms. We will provide security, stability, acceptance, education, and support. As their parents, we assure you they will grow up in an accepting and loving family. We are committed to providing the best life for our child we know how to. A big part of that life includes you. We want to be able to provide our child with open communication and understanding of who they are and where they come from. By them having a relationship with you we know they will have a holistic perspective of who they are.
