We want to thank you for taking the time to get to know us and for considering us as parents to your child. We admire you for your courageous and selfless decision to choose adoption for your child. Our names are Darrin and Melanie. We have been trying for several years to fulfill our dream of being parents and have been unable to have children of our own. Our path now leads us to adoption to build the family of our dreams. We have so much love to give and lots of laughter and fun times we can't wait to share with your child, if you give us the opportunity. We are so excited to start this journey together with you.
We have been married for 4 wonderful years. We met at Melanie's twin sister's wedding. We fell in love and were married the next year. We have never once regretted our decision to marry. We both grew up with the same beliefs and teachings. We belong to a wonderful, supportive church that we are quite active in. We work very well together in accomplishing our goals. We both have the same desires and goals and that is what has made our marriage so strong.
In our home we strive for peace. Putting each other first is something we believe is very important in keeping peace in the home. Laughter and good times are something our home has a lot of.
Our Extended Family
We both grew up in families with strong religious values and morals and are blessed to have incredibly loving and caring families both near and far. All of Darrin's family live within 5-10 minutes of us. His family is very close knit and so we spend a lot of time together. It is the tradition to all get together at his parent's house Saturday evenings for supper. Most of Melanie's family live in Mississippi and Louisiana, but her twin sister lives just a few miles away. We spend a lot of time with her and her husband and we often babysit their kids.
Our Family Traditions
We love camping and hiking and usually go camping at least once a year. We often take our dog for a Sunday afternoon walk on a nearby trail. There are several lakes close that we enjoy boating on or just picnicking by. We also love to travel and try to take at least one big road trip every year. Spending time with our family and friends is one of our favorite things to do. We often have cookouts in the woods at Darrin's parent's house. Whether we are at work, home or play we try to have a good time at whatever we are doing.
What Led Us To Adoption
We have always wanted children. We have been dealing with infertility for several years now and have been unsuccessful with treatments. We have discussed adoption and we both feel God is leading us to adopt to build the family of our dreams.
