are Erik and Melanie. We met through an online dating service in 2004. After
our first date, where we talked for over 4 hours, we knew we were meant to be
together. We were married on a beautiful, sunny day in 2007. Our days have been
filled with fun and laughter, camping, travel, and hanging out with family and
friends. We adopted our beautiful daughter in 2012 and she has brought so much
joy and laughter to our home and to our family.
works for a large cable company and spends his days setting up people’s homes
for cable, internet and phone. He is fortunate to have 3 days off every week
and spends some of that time with our daughter while Melanie is at work, and
Sundays we spend together as a family. Melanie is an elementary school teacher.
She always wanted to be a teacher so that she would have holidays and summers
home with her children. We enjoy camping, going to festivals and playing
outside. Riding bikes in the summer and going sledding in the winter are some
of our favorite things.
live in a quiet neighborhood with lots of kids. Our house is very spacious and
has room for everyone. We spend most of our time in the kitchen/living room
area and in our great backyard. We have lots of grass and a playground right in
our own yard. Melanie loves to cook and makes most of our meals at home. There
are many great parks, swimming pools, golf courses and the lakefront is right
down the street. We have several museums and libraries in our town and one town
over there is a zoo! We are so excited to be able to introduce your child to all
of these places and help them to discover the world.
are very close to both our families. Although Melanie’s parents live in
California, we still see them several times a year. They cannot wait to come
and visit when we have another little one. Erik’s family all live very close to
us. His parents, grandparents, brother and sisters are all minutes away.
Needless to say we see them a lot! There is always a family cook out, someone’s
birthday party or just going to lunch after church. Our family is so excited to
welcome one more little one into the bunch!
are giving us a gift we could never give to ourselves. We are eternally
grateful for that and wish you many blessing along your journey.
there ever comes a day when we can't be together keep me in your heart, I'll
stay there forever.”
