From Us to You

Dear Expectant Mother,

You face a difficult decision and we admire you for the courage it takes to consider making an adoption plan for your child. Should you decide to choose us to love and raise your child, our promise to you is to provide your child with a family life that is filled with love, laughter and lots of adventures. We hope to meet you soon and we would love to be a part of your journey.

When I first met Melissa, I couldn’t have told you that we would be happily married one day and now looking back on the beginnings of our relationship and seeing it progress, really makes my heart happy and puts a smile on my face. There are so many good things about her, like she’s definitely the brain of the family and I love how she likes to plan things for us. I also love that she’s a traveler and enjoys going places. She’s an animal lover (like myself) and loves both of our pets dearly. We have so many pictures of our pets, which means you can only imagine that we will have pictures of your child galore to send you. She’s also very family oriented, which I love because I’m the same way. We’re so both well balanced and work together as a team and I know deep down in my heart, that we will be amazing parents and provide your child with a happy life. Did I also mention that my wife is beautiful, smart, loving, thoughtful, caring and will no doubt be an amazing mom to your child.

Johnnie is a unique individual, in a good way! The love that Johnnie shares with everyone is simply amazing. This is what I love the most about him. From friends to family, there is not a single person that he has not met that they are not instant friends. He is one of those people that you don’t have to ask to help. He will volunteer his time to anyone. He makes sure I am always taken care of as well as our animals. His face lights up when he is in the room with any kids, no matter what age. He has a way of adapting to them and they love him just as much as our friends and family do. Johnnie enjoys mountain biking and is already dreaming of the day he can teach your child to ride a bike and when your child gets older going on the trails together, father and child. He is going to be a wonderful dad to your child.

We live in a quiet but friendly neighborhood with a park just down the street from our house that we enjoy taking our dog to for walks several times a week. In this park, there is a small pond and Johnnie is looking forward to taking your child down to feed the ducks that live there. Melissa enjoys cooking, especially home cooked meals and can’t wait to pull up a chair so that your little one can join her in preparing the family meals. We are big on eating dinner together each night and putting our cell phones away so we can hear all about each other’s day. We imagine a child at the table with us, sharing how their day was and making plans for the weekend of all the things we want to do as a family. We LOVE to travel and are looking forward to showing your child the world. We like to travel to new places and not travel to the same place twice, unless of course it is to visit family. Since we are both big animal lovers, the zoo is one of our favorite places to visit. We can’t wait to get an annual family pass to the zoo so that we can visit the zoo frequently with your child.

Your child will be surrounded by grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins who can’t wait to meet them. One of our favorite family traditions is hosting Thanksgiving where we deep fry the turkey and all the aunts, uncles and cousins come to town and join us for a day of feasting and reconnecting to family we may not have seen during the year.

The opportunity to adopt your child would be the greatest gift and we promise to provide your child with a family life that is filled with love, laughter and lots of adventures. Thank you for reading our letter and considering our family.

With all our love,
Johnnie and Melissa

Lifestyle

We live a minimalist, conservative lifestyle. Spending time together or with our family and friends is much more important to us than anything else. We love to have our family and friends over and sit out on our back deck enjoying each other’s company. Date nights at home are the best! We enjoy cooking at home, going for walks in our family friendly neighborhood and spending time with our dog, Maya and cat, Paisley. When we do go out, what we look for is to find a different restaurant to try or a different activity to do or a different trail to hike/bike. A good foundation starts with us having a strong relationship in order to build a wonderful foundation for our children.

Why Adoption?

The decision to choose adoption was an easy one. It has always been in Melissa’s heart from when she was young to be able to help another family in the means of adoption. Johnnie was on board from the start and he agrees that a birthmother being able to help another family in this way is one of the most selfless acts. We look forward to including the birth mother in the life of this new blessing. The amount of love we share for each other is too much to contain between the two of us and our pets. We need someone to share this love with.

Traditions

Before we purchased our home, we could not wait to host friends and family. Our most favorite tradition is us hosting Thanksgiving every year and having as much family over to serve as possible. Johnnie deep fries a turkey every year – YUM! Johnnie’s family along with Melissa’s come from all parts of the U.S. to spend time together for Christmas. As much as we love spending time with our family, we also enjoy spending time with our friends. We host a regular game night about once a month. Always fun and cannot wait for the next one. Spending time with friends and family is the best!

Pets

We have two fur babies, Maya who is a blue heeler and Paisley, our orange tabby cat. Maya loves meeting new people, playing and following us around the house. She absolutely hates when Johnnie and I are in different rooms and she is not able to be in two places at once. Our cat Paisley is a fan of us and prefers to run and hide when people come over.

What do you hope to teach your child(ren)?

We will raise our child with love and respect and lead them by example to love and respect others. We believe that each child comes with different and unique characteristics and personalities and it is our responsibility as parents to help our child grow to their highest potential.

Vacations & Trips

We LOVE taking vacations. Whether it be a full week away somewhere or a long weekend exploring Texas. Melissa recently returned from a long weekend girl’s trip with two of her closest friends to another part of Texas. The sights, shops and wine tours were fabulous! Together, we always try to take at least one full week vacation once a year. Last year we road tripped to Florida for a few days, just the two of us exploring the beach, dolphin watching and snorkeling. After Destin, we made our way up to the mountains of Tennessee to finish off the vacation, visiting Johnnie’s family. Finding new adventures to share with our future children is what we are looking forward to the most.
