Why Do We Want to Adopt?

We are a caring, passionate and fun loving couple and have always dreamed of having a family. As a newly married couple in July, 2005 we began thinking right away about having a family. After several months of trying on our own, we learned that we needed to try fertility treatments. Although the world of fertility treatments was new to us, we both embraced the process. Through our positive approach, the first treatment worked and we thought we were on our way to starting our family.

However, when Melissa was 20 weeks pregnant with identical twins she began experiencing contractions and had to go to the hospital where Melissa was given medication to slow the contractions. Unfortunately, though, nothing could be done and Melissa went into labor and we lost the babies. Like any healthy couple, we put everything in perspective and tried to continue to have a family. Unfortunately, as a result of the complications with the loss of the twins, we are not able to have our own children.

We want to build our family through adoption with love, laughter, fun and passion.

We are looking for any help, advice, etc. that you may have for us. The truth is that we would like to have a family, and we’d like to have a family soon. So, please keep us in mind whenever you hear about a situation that may help us.

To Birth Parent(s):
If you are a birth parent considering an adoption plan for your child, please contact us. We are looking to build our family through adoption and we welcome the opportunity to talk with you about your hopes and plans for your baby and to see if our situations are a good match for an adoption plan.

To Family, Friends and Anyone Else:
If you know of someone who is a birthmother who is interested in placing their child for adoption, please contact us so that we may reach out to them to see if they are interested in helping us build our family.

Thank you very much!
