Adoption is Our Dream
Let's make a difference in the life of a child!
Scott and Melissa
Hello and thank you for reading our letter! We are Scott and Melissa from North Carolina. We know this is a difficult time in your life. By sharing it with you, we hope to give you confidence that your child will be welcomed with open arms into our loving family. We believe that open adoption is a blessing to all involved and we look forward to sharing our love and life with a precious child. Our child will know what a loving birthmother he or she has and how deeply cherished she or he is by both families. We'll share his or her adoption story and the special way we became a family.
We have been happily married for almost 8 years. Melissa's mother set us up on a blind date and it worked out perfectly-we are truly right for each other. Having children to love, teach and encourage was always part of our plans. After 5 years of infertility, we are so excited and ready to adopt the child that we already love in our hearts and imagine in our dreams. We have so much love to give and are eager to nurture your baby and provide him or her all the opportunities the world has to offer.
Our home is comfortable, warm, welcoming. A bedroom awaits the cries and giggles of the baby that will grow up there. The walls are missing the colors of crayons and magic markers. The floors long for the pitter-patter of little feet. Our house is full of love, but something is missing. Our family is not complete. In spring and summer, pink and white azaleas, daylilies, and hosta bring our yard to life. A pair of hummingbirds buzz the feeder at the end of the front porch. Our yellow cat takes a nap on the back deck. Frogs and crickets serenade as the scent of magnolia and gardenia floats on the warm air. At twilight, lighting bugs flash in the trees. This is our favorite time of year. A trip to Myrtle or Carolina Beach makes the summer complete. Yellow mums and rustling leaves welcome the Fall and a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Thanksgiving brings our family together for our moms' delicious cooking. Then the Christmas season decorating begins with a live tree of treasured ornaments, The Nativity and Christmas play at Church. We are so ready for a little angel of our own.
We are a rather low-key couple. Our family is an important part of our lives and we spend a lot of time with them, particularly weekends. There are lots of babies and young children in our family, so our child will have relatives to play and grow up with. We spend our after work hours working out at the YMCA-which has lots of programs for kids. We take walks, unwind with TV shows or X-box games, and play with our cat Junior. On weekends we visit with family and friends, putter around the house and do the grocery shopping. We look forward to the new activities of parenting- cheering at ball games, dance or piano recitals, and being involved in PTA meetings.
You may wonder what your baby's future might be like with us. We look forward to all the joys and challenges of parenting including: 2:00 a.m feedings, kissing booboos, first words and steps, potty training and on and on. Our child will get lots of attention from both of us. We will teach strong morals and values in a loving, safe home. We will attend Sunday church services together as a family. We'll support him or her when they struggle, applaud when they do well and offer guidance when they make mistakes. We'll present opportunities to develop her or his own special interests, talents and skills. We'll nurture their self-esteem, develop a joy for learning and encourage her or him to pursue the activities that bring them happiness.
Like most families today we both work. It allows us to live a comfortable lifestyle, own a home and provide for the future of our family. We both have a strong work ethic and enjoy our professions- marketing/advertising and computer engineering. We feel evenings and weekends should be dedicated to family time and activities together. It's important to keep communication open and stay connected as a family. When we become parents the needs of our family will direct decisions regarding work.
Our Open Adoption Plan
We believe open adoption gives everyone peace of mind. We appreciate the care that you are taking to select a family that will give your baby all that you wish for him or her. We want to establish a relationship that everyone can feel comfortable with. Adoption offers the opportunity to broaden our outlook on life, love and family.
