Dear Birthmother,

It is such a pleasure to be writing this letter. Thank you for viewing and considering our profile. About three years ago, we tried to have a baby using a fertility physician. Melissa became pregnant and unfortunately ended up having a miscarriage. It was a great loss for us. It broke our hearts, but it did not make us want to give up. We decided that we could still give love and the gift of Jesus Christ through adoption.

We are very excited about giving your baby a home that is filled with love, Christian morals, and values. We would not use the term "adopting"; instead we believe we are giving a child love, care, concern, hope, and ultimately the love that Jesus Christ gives us daily. Our love is unconditional and it will not only be shown to the child, but it will also extend to you. Please know that your child will receive the best that we have to offer and will be our priority. We pray that God will allow you to see us as future parents to your child.

About Us

We have been married since 2014 and have known each other since 2011. We are an energetic family that is full of life. We enjoy hiking, family vacations, movie nights, bowling, horseback riding, various sports, and attending church. We are hardworking individuals who believe in love and sacrifice. We are Christians and love the Lord. We have a ten year old daughter, Sydney, who lives with us and an eighteen year old son in college. We both come from very big families and visit them during the holidays. Our families are full of love and acceptance.

ShaRhonda is retired from the United States Air Force. While serving in the United States Air Force, she deployed to various locations of the world. Melissa is a retired United States Army Officer. She has had an extraordinary career. She helped many military members and their families during and after deployments. She has worked with Sexual Assault victims around the United States.

Our Home

We live in a gated community in San Antonio, Texas. Our city is culturally diverse Our home is a two-story home with four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. We already have a nursery ready; as well as a partial nursery in our room. We also have a family room upstairs and that is usually where we watch movies, play games, have bible study, and relax. The family room is our favorite room. We live in a diverse and quiet neighborhood with many kind neighbors. The elementary school that Sydney currently attends is 7 minutes from our house. It is diverse with an excellent faculty. We also have several neighborhood parks we can easily walk to.

Our Extended Family

Our family is extremely close. We have two wonderful children. We have an 18 year our son, DeAndre and 10 year old daughter, Sydney. DeAndre is currently attending Greenville Christian College with the goal of becoming an engineer. He is smart, funny, quiet, extremely helpful and we are very proud of him. Sydney is a burst of energy. She is talkative, helpful, and describes herself as a fashionista. She enjoys family time.

ShaRhonda's family is diverse, large, and full of love. Her mother is a strong part of the family, who loves unconditionally and encourages everyone to do the same. Most members of her family are military. Her grandmother is a woman of wisdom and she dedicates herself to the grandchildren and the great grandchildren. Many of the gatherings are full of laughter, food, singing, and praising Jesus Christ. Her family is welcoming and very warm.

Melissa's family is very nuturing and excited about the adoption. Being a military family, her family moved around a lot throughout her childhood, but they always maintained a close relationship. Her grandmother is known as the "rock" of the family and brings everyone together. Her father and mother are deacons in their church. Her whole family is eager to share and show the love of Jesus Christ with the child who enters our family.

Our Family Traditions

We believe in teaching our children about Jesus Christ through the Bible. We have Bible study with Sydney three days out of the week. This gives her an opportunity to learn about Jesus Christ, ask questions, and recite her weekly memory verse. On Fridays, we typically watch a Christian movie that is age appropriate so she can see some of the many miracles of Jesus Christ.

What Led Us To Adoption

We would like to adopt to give a child a home filled with Jesus Christ, unconditional love, joy, peace, diversity and happiness. We desire to give a child the gift of love and provide this child with a future that is full of possibilities and success.
